Non-surgical cosmetic treatments

Aging is a fact of life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we have to look older than we need to! Blast the signs of aging with one (or more) of these cosmetic treatments.


Are those subtle signs of aging encouraging you to search for the elusive fountain of youth? While it might not be exactly what Ponce de Leon had in mind, these cosmetic treatments will make you believe you’ve found it right in your own neighbourhood — well, at least as close as your nearest treatment centre. Aging gracefully is a wonderful way to celebrate your life, but there isn’t any harm in a little intervention, is there? Read on for some of the most popular and effective non-surgical ways to reduce some of the common signs of aging.


Botox injections have become commonplace in the beauty rejuvenation world. When administered correctly, they will drastically reduce wrinkles and leave you looking more relaxed and youthful — and not with an inability to make normal facial expressions, as is so often suggested. While the results are temporary (usually lasting only a few months), they can be administered often to achieve the desired results.

Cosmetic fillers

Smile lines? Crow’s feet? Thinning lips? These are just a few of the aging concerns that can be helped by cosmetic fillers. A few quick injections can have your face freshened up, with years taken off your appearance, and you have your choice of options, since several brand names are on the market. While most fillers are temporary, newer to the market are fillers that use your own body fat and as such can be a permanent solution when done properly.


Out with the old, in with the new! This could easily be the mantra of microdermabrasion, which removes the outermost layers of skin to reveal new skin that has reduced scarring, age spots and fine lines. This exfoliation technique is easily administered in a dermatologist’s office and is virtually free of any side effects, barring a bit of redness and sensitivity following the procedure.

Laser treatments

Several laser therapy treatments are available that can treat almost any skin condition you may be concerned about! Skin tightening, scar removal, acne, rocasea, hair removal and anti-aging are just some of the reasons to choose a laser treatment. This option will usually require about four to six treatments to see the benefits.

The decision is yours

With so many options to help fight the signs of aging, including those mentioned above, creating a more youthful appearance is easier than ever! Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are generally safe and don’t require the recovery time a traditional facelift would need. Selecting a rejuvenation treatment option is a personal choice, but for optimal results, be sure to consult with a qualified professional to discuss all your options, and then decide on the treatment that’s best for you.
