Advanced beauty care treatments have become very popular and in great demand today. For those looking to enhance their appearance through plastic surgery, there are basically two categories – invasive and non-invasive.
Here, the two will be studied in some detail including their pros and cons so that you can truly understand which will be good for you.
Invasive surgery is any process that breaks the skin with an incision. Another way to look at it is that there will always be a scar after the treatment, however temporary it might be. Some of the common invasive beauty care procedures are nose reshaping, fat transfer and body contouring, facial surgery, breast surgery and other forms of massive weight loss surgery.
Even though invasive processes typically have long lasting, almost permanent and more noticeable results than their non-invasive counterparts, it comes with a few problems that are not seen in the other. First, surgeries are generally carried out under local or general anaesthesia and hence there is a certain downtime and often prolonged recuperation periods. During this time, there is a certain degree of redness, swelling and bruising around the operated area. So far as scarring is concerned, plastic surgeons try to hide it as much as possible. For instance in surgical facelifts the scars are tucked away behind the hairline.
Non Invasive treatments
Non-invasive treatments are those that do not require any incision and the skin need not be cut. Some of the non-invasive beauty care treatments include permanent hair removal, skin rejuvenation, Injectables such as lip injections and anti-wrinkle injections and other processes carried out on state of the art laser and IPL machines. These processes are safe and painless and without any side effects.
But just as surgical procedures rely largely on the surgeon’s expertise to be successful, non-invasive treatments depend on the quality of machines used for pain free and optimised processes. That is why beauty clinics and spas source their equipment from top of the line manufacturers. In Australia, Universal Medical Aesthetics is a leading importer and distributor of world class beauty care machines and salons that have them installed offer guaranteed and assured results to their clients.
Non invasive treatments are much in demand primarily because of the convenience to patients. Most treatments are completed in less than an hour and the patient can resume normal duties immediately after. Even though a few processes like permanent laser hair removal take a few sessions to be completed, results of others like anti wrinkle or lip enhancing injections are noticeable soon after.
These are some of the basic differences between invasive and non-invasive beauty care treatments.
