Why Choose Aesthetic Treatments Over Cosmetic Surgery?

Not so long ago, plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery was the go-to if you wanted to enhance your appearance. This would usually involve what is essentially a medical operation, with an anaesthetic, incisions to your body or face and then stitches. If that sounds a bit gruesome, then you might want to consider aesthetic treatments as they have a whole host of benefits over cosmetic surgery!

The Growth Of The Aesthetics Industry

If you are wondering whether aesthetic treatments are for you, then it’s good to know that, for many people, a visit to a clinic is as usual as going to a hair salon. The aesthetics industry in the UK is growing at an incredible pace, revealed by a recent survey that reports 7.7 million (11%) people have had a treatment in the last year, and there are 13.9 million (1 in 5) people considering it in the next 12 months.

Why Choose Aesthetic Treatments Over Cosmetic Surgery?

Aesthetic treatments have a much shorter recovery period than surgical options and can often be carried out in a lunch break. The popularity also comes from the fact that the cost of aesthetic treatments means they are accessible to a larger majority of people in the UK. This is in contrast to cosmetic surgery procedures, which can be highly invasive with long recovery periods and costs that put them out of reach for most of the population.

Cosmetic surgery is often chosen to create a dramatic and often unnatural change in appearance, whereas aesthetic treatments have more subtle results, often using techniques that work in harmony with your body’s natural processes.

Another downside to cosmetic surgery is that complications can arise, including pain and discomfort, bleeding, infection and scarring. These things can happen during or after surgery, or they could develop over time, appearing months or even years later, often with long-term effects on health.

If you want to embrace quick, effective and clinically-proven alternatives to cosmetic surgery, then we have a range of aesthetic treatments to enhance your natural beauty at Christopher Maerevoet.

Popular Aesthetic Treatments At Christopher Maerevoet

Firmslim body contouring offers an alternative to a surgical body lift. The effectiveness of this treatment lies in the combination of four techniques. Laser therapy lowers the skin’s resistance through targeted heat energy, which causes fat cells to open, releasing fatty acids, water and glycerol, allowing bipolar radiofrequency energy to penetrate deeply into the tissue.

Then, mechanical massage speeds up the process of breaking down the fat cells before vacuum suction sends the liquid fat to your lymphatic system, where it is recognised as waste and is naturally disposed of. The results? An instant inch loss, a stunning silhouette and tightened, lifted skin!

Do you want to reverse the signs of ageing on your face and neck? As an alternative to a facelift, why not try IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)? Also known as a ‘photofacial’, this non-invasive treatment uses a new and unique combination of Lynton technology and skincare products to lift sagging skin and improve your skin tone and appearance, helping you look and feel your best.
