In the world of plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, and skin care, non-invasive procedures have been increasingly popular. There are many reasons for this, and we will look at some of these reasons in this article.
Firstly, let’s define non-invasive. According to Google, “A non-invasive procedure is a conservative treatment that does not require incision into the body or the removal of tissue. For the treatment of back pain, a combination of non-invasive procedures such as chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, and heat therapy are typically prescribed for several weeks.”
In other words, a non-invasive procedure is one that doesn’t involve going “under the knife”. Some example non-invasive surgeries include Ultherapy, Botox, Restylane, and Coolsculpting. Examples of invasive surgery include breast augmentation, most forms of liposuction, and facelifts.
Why The Sudden Trend?
There are various benefits to non-invasive procedures, but it’s important to note that not all procedures can be non-invasive. If the procedure is serious enough, often times the best option is an invasive procedure. Non-invasive procedures have become popular amongst patients because the results are good, not as obvious, and more. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits.
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of non-invasive procedures is the fact that they don’t take nearly as long as invasive procedures. In fact, some take such little time that they have been coined as “lunchtime” procedures. The concept here is that the procedure takes such little time that one can get it done during their lunch break.
Typically, procedure don’t last for more than an hour. Most are much less than this.
Oftentimes we don’t realize that the time of the actual procedure isn’t the only thing to consider. In fact, some recovery times for invasive procedures can last for 2-3 months. This is extremely inconvenient for those of us who work and are busy. With non-invasive procedures the patient doesn’t have to worry about long recovery times. Usually, recovery times don’t last for longer than a day or two. This is an incredible benefit to anyone who doesn’t have 2-3 months to lay around recovering.
In general, non-invasive procedures are a lot less expensive than invasive procedures. There are various reasons for this, but mostly it is because the surgeries aren’t as intense, as long, and don’t require any kind of drugs.
Instead of paying thousands of dollars, one would be paying hundreds for a non-invasive procedures.
Another huge benefit to non-invasive procedures is that the results are gradual, and not extremely noticeable. In other words, most of the time people won’t be able to notice that someone had a non-invasive procedure done. Wherehas if someone got an invasive procedure it is much more obvious (think scarring).
With this trend in non-invasive procedures, it is likely that more and more patients will favor non-invasive over invasive. Because of this, it’s important that doctors are using the best tools for the job. Here at Dermaquip we offer tools to help doctors and surgeons do their job as best as possible.
