Summer is slipping away quickly, but there’s still time to make the most of the season. If you’ve got some problem areas that make you hesitate to put on a bikini, or if the signs of aging on your face are making you look older than you feel, then these top non-invasive treatments may be right for you. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about all of your options, like CoolSculpting, laser skin resurfacing, or dermabrasion!

Freeze your fat away with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is the perfect summertime treatment. It harnesses the power of cryolipolysis to freeze away fat cells. CoolSculpting isn’t intended to be a weight loss treatment. Rather, it’s a targeted fat reduction treatment that can safely and effectively reduce bulges of fat in these areas:

  • Hips
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Chin
  • Upper arms

CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive—there are no incisions, no needles, and no anesthesia. Plus, there’s little to no downtime required. You may experience some tenderness, swelling, tingling, and redness at the treated areas for a few days, but you can immediately return to your usual activities—no restrictions. You’ll see results in as few as three weeks, with continued improvements over the next few months.

Rejuvenate your skin with laser resurfacing

The first laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) was built in 1960. It was fairly primitive, but the technology has developed in leaps and bounds. Today, lasers are used for all sorts of clinical applications, including cosmetic enhancements. Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to fight back against the effects of time. This one treatment can reduce blemishes like age spots and acne scars, minimize lines and wrinkles, and tighten your skin. It can even improve your skin tone and your overall complexion! It’s also a good choice for people who are bothered by sun damage, warts, and enlarged oil glands.

The plastic surgeon will precisely direct the laser at your damaged skin to remove the epidermis, or the outer layer. Simultaneously, the laser stimulates new collagen fibers to form to tighten and smooth the skin. If you choose laser skin resurfacing, be careful to apply sunscreen on the treated skin before going outdoors.

Scour away imperfections with dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is similar to laser skin resurfacing in that the top layers of skin are removed during the treatment. Because of this, dermabrasion is effective for treating all the problem areas that laser skin resurfacing treats, like wrinkles, scars, and age spots. However, dermabrasion is a bit more intensive and requires a longer recovery time. And instead of a laser, it uses an abrasive device. Not everyone is a good candidate for dermabrasion. Talk to your plastic surgeon to find out if it’s right for you.
