Non-surgical treatments have become a popular choice for people seeking a wide range of different cosmetic effects. We can now use non-surgical approaches to do everything from smoothing away wrinkles to augmenting your lips. Why have these non-surgical treatments become so popular in the UK?
One of the key reasons for the popularity of non-surgical treatments is that they can produce many of the same effects as the older surgical treatments. Although there are some limitations on what can be done without an operation we now have non-surgical treatments that can rival surgical facelifts, nose jobs and other procedures.
Given the choice between surgery and a simple treatment at Dermadoc, most people would prefer to avoid the operation when we can give them the same results. Our non-surgical cosmetic treatments include:
- Non-surgical facelifts
- Chin augmentation
- Lip enhancement
- Cheek augmentation
- Nose corrections
- Wrinkle fillers
Many of these treatments can achieve results that used to only be possible with surgery. For example, we can tighten your skin with facelift treatments like HIFU or add volume using dermal fillers to enhance the shape of your nose, cheeks, or jawline. Our non-surgical cosmetic treatments have become a popular choice for men and women who would prefer to avoid having an operation to get the results they want.
5 Reasons to Choose a Non-Surgical Treatment
In addition to being able to achieve comparable results without surgery there are some other good reasons to visit Dermadoc for a non-surgical treatment.
- No Downtime:
One of the biggest advantages of non-surgical treatments is that you won’t need to take any time off to recover. You will usually be able to go back to your normal routine right away. Most surgical treatments require days or weeks of rest to recover, during which you could have a lot of bruising and swelling. Although you’ll have to wait to see the full effects of some non-surgical treatments, you won’t need any downtime and some can produce immediate results.
- Lower Risks:
Although cosmetic surgery is usually safe when it is performed at a reputable clinic in the UK, there are always risks involved with any kind of operation. You could have an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic or develop an infection after the procedure. There is also a small chance that the procedure could go wrong, causing damage to your nerves or tissue. The risks are much lower for non-cosmetic procedures as they are much less invasive and don’t require general anaesthetics. We’ll always ensure that you understand any risks before you have a procedure at Dermadoc and take all possible steps to minimise them.
- More Control:
We understand how important it is for you to get the results you want when you have a cosmetic treatment. Non-surgical procedures can give you more control over this. You will be able to tell us what you want during the initial consultation, discuss the treatment options with us and have a real say on the results. We can personalise the treatment to your needs and you’ll be awake during the procedure so you’ll be aware of what’s happening.
- More Affordable:
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments can be much more affordable than the surgical alternatives. Having cosmetic surgery can easily cost thousands of pounds. For example, a surgical nose job in the UK could cost £5000, which is more than 10 times as much as the cost of a typical non-surgical nose correction. Even when you take into account the fact that the non-surgical procedures need to be repeated to maintain the effects, the cost can still be much lower.
- You Can Change Your Mind:
The effects of non-surgical treatments aren’t permanent. While this means that you will need to have additional treatments in order to maintain the effects, it also means that you can change your mind at any time. Some treatments such as dermal fillers can be reversed right away while the others will wear off in time. You can decide whether you want to have the same treatment again or to choose a different type of treatment instead. We can also tweak the results of many non-surgical treatments if you aren’t entirely satisfied, for example by adding some more dermal filler. You wouldn’t have all of these options if you had a surgical treatment, so you might end up with permanent results that aren’t what you want.
