Many people crave to look like those supermodels we see on TV, but sometimes all the dieting in the world can’t give them what they desire, so they usually turn to expensive and risky surgical procedures. For instance, liposuction is officially the most popular procedure even though it hurts badly and leaves severe bruising and swelling after surgery. Some complications such as infections, skin reactions, asymmetry, hyper pigmentation and bleeding are possible as well. And not to mention it’s not very affordable. But, does beauty really need to hurt so badly and be that expensive? What are some alternatives to surgical beauty procedures you can try in 2017? Let’s take a look.
Freeze that fat
Forget about painful lipos, and say hello to cold! CoolSculpting is a technology that uses cooling methods to freeze and remove unwanted fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by the lymphatic system. The amazing thing about CoolSculpting is that it’s not a surgical procedure and it doesn’t need any recovery time. It works well on the belly, thighs and love handles, but it can also be used on other areas. The discomfort caused by cold lasts only a couple of minutes and the rest of the treatment is usually completely painless. Also, the results become visible sometimes even after the first treatment. Obviously, a much more comfortable option than a lipo.
Fat cavitation for a perfect figure
Another treatment that is much more affordable and pleasant than lipo is fat cavitation. Ultrasonic fat cavitation is a revolutionary procedure that involves the use of low-frequency ultrasounds to target areas where fat cells are stored. The ultrasound waves destroy fat cells and turn them into liquid that the body can use for energy. This procedure guarantees instant fat loss without any health risks and discomfort. Fat cavitation is perfectly safe, painless and comfortable, and as soon as you finish your treatment you can go on with your daily activities. It’s truly a luxury treatment that produces immediate results and is worth every penny.
Mask it up
Facial masks are a great alternative for those expensive visits to beauty salons. There are sheet masks, mud masks, and peel masks and all can contain natural and organic ingredients with tons of skin benefits. They are really becoming an important part of every woman’s beauty routine and we don’t see them losing popularity any time soon. Many people today choose peel-off masks that are packed with vitamins, and charcoal masks that extract all sorts of impurities from your skin. All those facial masks help repair any skin damage as well as protect the skin from future damage. They are quite affordable, enjoyable and super fun to peel off!
Facial yoga and pilates have been created to deliver a natural way to lift your face and help reshape your facial contours. This facial treatment usually starts with a deep cleansing, continues with facial massages and ends with a concentrated mask. All of these will plump up your skin, smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, soften and increase the tone and leave your skin glowing and looking youthful. These treatments not only get your circulation going but also open up your pores which helps beauty products penetrate the skin more effectively. Some treatments also include a back massage for a complete pampering experience that’s so much more affordable and pleasant than any surgical face lift.
This is another super popular beauty trend that will make you forget about all those expensive visits to the beauty salon and spending hours in front of the mirror grooming and drawing your eyebrows. Microblading is a much easier and permanent solution to perfect brows. It’s a form of tattoo artistry where the pigment is being injected under the skin with a handheld tool. The artist draws hair-like strokes to mimic the natural hairs or your wigs on your brows. It’s less painful than a regular tattoo and most people report feeling the sensation similar to scratching. The effects of microblading can last up to three years, but most clients go for a touch-up every year. Just imagine how much time and money you will save by always having perfect eyebrows.
No, beauty doesn’t have to hurt. Sometimes it can be quite enjoyable actually. So, forget about those expensive and painful surgical procedures and turn to some revolutionary treatments that will make you look better than ever without any pain and damage to your wallet.
