Cosmetic treatments are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Practitioners are constantly evolving their techniques to give patients natural-looking results.
Today, non-surgical treatments are available that produce better outcomes than invasive procedures. These techniques reduce the risk of infection, minimize scarring and limit recovery time. But where are non-surgical cosmetic treatments heading?

Until then, read on to learn about eight cosmetic trends that are gaining momentum:
- Micro Needling for Crow’s Feet
Micro needling is a new method that stimulates collagen production. According to Drug-Aware.com, the device is a patch with tiny needles that inject hyaluronic acid directly into the dermis.
- Electromagnetic Energy for Hyperhidrosis
There is a new hope for patients who suffer from excessive sweating: electromagnetic energy. Although Botox is effective for hyperhidrosis, electromagnetic energy heats the sweat glands and destroys them permanently.
- Modern Thread Lifts
Doctors can combine a new method of thread lift with a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, which attracts skin cells and increases growth and blood circulation.
- Combination Eye Procedures
Patients with severe lines around the eyes are starting to combine treatments so they enjoy better results with one recovery period. Often, a combination of Botox, ultrasound and dermal fillers can do wonders for a patient’s appearance.
- Laser Tattoo Removal
A recent poll of 2,000 people showed that 39 percent regret their tattoos. More clinics are offering tattoo removal to keep up with the high demand.
- Fat Dissolving Injections
Fat dissolving ingredients are making global headlines. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration recently approved a product to treat double chins.
- Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting can contour the body without the need for incisions. Non-surgical fat reduction is often a better alternative than liposuction.
If you want to contour your silhouette, you may be wondering whether CoolSculpting or liposuction is the better option. Ask these questions before making the choice:
- What results do I want?
- How much time can I spend on recovery?
- What is my budget?
- Do I feel comfortable with invasive surgery?
- Do I want to combine fat reduction with another surgical procedure?
CoolSculpting tends to be less expensive than liposuction, and most patients do not require recovery time. Although CoolSculpting can reduce fat in target areas by 20 percent to 25 percent, liposuction offers more dramatic results. Patients can also combine liposuction with tummy tucks and other surgical procedures.
- Soft-Look Dermal Fillers
Newer dermal fillers contain RHA, or rheteric hyaluronic acid. This ingredient makes the filler softer and more natural with enhanced elasticity.
