Non-Surgical : -
Ancillary or non-surgical cosmetic procedures have gained a great deal of popularity in the past few years. One reason for their popularity is that non-surgical procedures usually cost less than surgical procedures.
Sometimes referred to in the media as "Lunch Time" or "Weekend" procedures, many ancillary procedures can be completed in a surgeon's office in less than an hour.
Some of the more popular non-surgical procedures with their definitions are mentioned below : -
Botox : - A neurotoxin which, when used in very low doses, relaxes or temporarily paralyzes the contractive muscles which cause frown lines. Treatment is non-surgical in the form of injections which smooth deep persistent lines between brows or in the forehead. Botox paralyzes facial muscles, while Puragen fills in the space beneath wrinkles. Each acts in a different way, but may be used to complement each other.
Fillers : - Nonconductive components cabled with the insulated conductors or optical fibers to impart roundness, flexibility, tensile strength, or a combination of all three, to the cable.
An inactive substance used to make a product bigger or easier to handle. For example, fillers are often used to make pills or capsules because the amount of active drug is too small to be handled conveniently.
Chemical Peels : - A procedure often used to minimize sun-damaged skin, irregular pigment, and superficial scars. The top layer of skin is removed with a chemical application to the skin. By removing the top layer, the skin regenerates, often improving the skin's appearance.
This non-surgical procedure is used in inducing new smoother, youthful skin growth through the use of an acid solution, usually trichloroacetic acid of 35-50%, which peels the top layers of skin. The wrinkles caused by sun damage, acne, smoking and aging can be effectively treatment with this technique.
