There are several treatments that you can get to look younger without having to have plastic surgery done. Plastic surgery can be expensive and the recovery time can be weeks. Below the non-surgical treatments have a much quicker recovery time, usually within days, in some cases the same day.
Below are some of your best options to help combat the aging process and get that younger, healthier look.
Injectables have become an enormous market in recent years, and that’s because they work. The looks you get and boost to your self-esteem when you look better are a natural high. Three of the most popular injectables are Botox, Dysport, and Voluma.
One of the single most popular treatment to look younger is Botox. Botox works by blocking the nerves in your body, so the muscles don’t contract which leads to giving yourself wrinkles.
Ecologica Med Spa explains how quick Botox results take, “Our patients have reported noticing results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.”
An FDA approved filler that can last for up to two years. Voluma is used to fill in the cheeks areas of the face. As we age, this is one area that tends to loosen up and break down. Adding fillers to the cheeks helps give that younger face look by lifting the cheeks.
Viva Day Spa explains how quick results from a Voluma treatment take, “You will see immediate results from your Juvederm Voluma XC treatments.”

Ethos Spa explains the Kybella recovery time as, “You may experience swelling for a short period. You should not see a double chin when you look in the mirror again.
A laser lift is done by putting the laser under the subdermal area of the skin which helps melt the fat as well as tighten the skin. Most people get the laser lifts around the lower face and neck areas. Although there is no surgery, you will have needles going under your skin to complete this treatment. Some people combine treatments getting laser lifts towards the bottom of their face and Botox near the top.
Never underestimate a healthy dose of vitamin C to help fight off the aging process. Vitamin C has been known to help improve the texture and appearance of skin to give you that more youthful look. Also, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which has been proven to reduce the effects of the sun and even helps prevent future sun damaged. Some of the best ways to get vitamin C is thru a skin serum. Favorite serums include SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream, and Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Targeted Spot Brightener.
No matter what you want to achieve when it comes to beauty, it is always best to seek out your non-surgical options first before going most drastic. Many of the above procedures will have noticeable effects and give you a youthful look you desire.
