Have you ever wondered about the effectiveness or lasting period of aesthetic medicine or procedures? Aesthetic medicine or procedures are usually non-invasive which usually doesn’t require incisions and have less downtime.
This explains its rising popularity, although the results of aesthetic medicine do not equal their surgical alternatives. Here’s a general low-down on how long an aesthetic procedure will last:
- Chemical Peels
With chemical peel treatments, new skin growth is stimulated and skin’s surface texture and appearance is very much improved. Different types of chemical peels yield a variety of results. A “lunchtime” peel result is mostly temporary while deep and medium peel results could last several years. Check out this video to view some experiences with chemical peels.
- Botox Injections
Shelf-Life: 3 – 6 Months
Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the formation of wrinkles so that the muscles don’t contract and form creases on the skin surface. Depending on the person’s metabolic rate, Botox injection results could last beyond 6 months. Read more about botox in this article.
- Dermal Fillers
Shelf-Life: 3 Months – 1 Year
The result of dermal fillers largely depends on the product and the location of the injection. Collagen fillers last up to 4 months, hyaluronic acid fillers last up to 12 months, calcium hydroxyapatite fillers last up to 18 months and Poly-L-Lactic acid fillers last up to 2 years before the body breaks them down and absorb it.
- Laser Spider Vein Treatments
Spider veins usually appear as aging progresses and with this treatment, laser is utilised to send strong bursts of light through the skin to break up blood in spider and varicose veins so that blood is distributed back into the body. While the end result is permanent, new spider veins may crop up in other parts of the body caused by aging.
- Laser Hair Treatment
Shelf-Life: Usually Permanent
A permanent way to reduce or remove unwanted facial and body hair, laser hair treatment is usually a long-term reliable solution to ensure that hair growth is reduced so that skin appears smooth without any stubble.
