Summary: Many non-surgical rejuvenation techniques only take a few days to recover from. With Memorial Day coming up, taking a “long weekend” may really leave you looking younger.
Your Next Three Days Off
Memorial Day is just around the corner and many of us are looking forward to having a few extra days off of work. “Long weekends” can be excellent for getting chores done, relaxing with your family, or even cosmetic surgery! You may not realize it, but there are MANY different non-surgical procedures that will leave you looking young and refreshed after just a day or two of recovery! If you are in the need of a “pick me up” and you have a couple of days to do something about it, Minneapolis plastic surgeons (read: facial rejuvenation experts) suggest that you consider all of your options.
The Non-Surgical Advantage
The term “Non-Surgical Cosmetic Surgery” typically refers to procedures that don’t require scalpels or general anesthesia. In general they are less invasive, and quicker to recover from than traditional surgery. For example, while a facelift may take weeks to months to fully heal from, laser skin resurfacing can give you a youthful, fresh appearance with just a few days of recovery. While the results from non-surgical procedures aren’t always “dramatic,” its a good way to get in some minor changes before fully committing to a potentially more risky surgery.
Plan Your “Non-Surgery” Today
If you have been feeling like your face could use a little boost, there are a number of different non-surgical options that could help you to look more fresh. Many of the options listed below are completely safe and have very fast recovery times:
- Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion removes scars and blemishes while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion is not painful and no anesthesia is necessary.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing: Performed to remove and improve facial wrinkles and sun damage, laser technology also works well to minimize acne scarring, deep laugh lines, and frown lines.
- Facial Chemical Peels: Non-surgical peels remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, causing your face to regenerate new skin cells. While there are some aggressive peels that have longer recovery times, there are no-downtime “lunchtime” skin refreshing peels which will refresh not only your face but also your confidence!
If any of the above procedures are of interest to you, research a plastic surgeon in your area that offers the technique of your choice and set up a one-on-one consultation as soon as possible. If you and your doctor agree upon which is the best procedure to refresh your skin and you book your appointment now, there’s a really good chance you’ll be better than 100% by Monday morning!
