Cosmetic surgeries have been on the rise for the past few years as people seek to maintain and improve their physical appearances. However, most of these procedures, especially the surgical ones, are expensive, and few people can afford them.
As the industry and technology continue to evolve, there has been an introduction of affordable cosmetic surgeries that more people can afford, including:
This is an appropriate procedure to give yourself a youthful, smooth, and tight skin appearance. The procedure uses a small abrasion tool to gently remove your skin’s outer layer, leaving you with a fresh, youthful, and glowing layer.
This procedure can eliminate acne and acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dark patches, discoloration, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and age spots. The average price of this procedure is $167, but that does not include additional costs like prescription medication.
Laser hair removal
If you struggle with unwanted hair and are tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing, this is the right procedure. The procedure involves a specialist using a laser device to direct a concentrated light beam into your hair follicles.
The melanin in your hair absorbs that light and turns it into heat, damaging your hair follicles and preventing growth.
The technician adjusts the laser device depending on the hair removal location and the thickness plus color of your hair. This procedure works best for people with light skin and dark hair, but other people can also see results.
This procedure can remove hair on your face, chin, back, legs, hands, underarms, arms, and bikini area. It removes the hair without affecting the surrounding skin. The first session does not permanently remove the hair, and you might need several sessions. The average cost of the procedure is $389 per session.
This is an injectable drug made from Botulinum toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum and is one of the most common cosmetic drugs used. Its most common use is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, on the corner of the mouth, on the forehead, and the chin.
It works by interrupting nerve messages to the targeted muscles, which prevents their contraction. Depending on the target area, the procedure takes a few minutes but takes around 7-14 days to see the results.
You should not rub the injected area for the first 24 hours, sit upright for the first few hours, and avoid exercises.
Botox comes in units, which cost around $10-$25 a unit, depending on where you buy them. The full price depends on the number of units you use, determined by the area you are treating, and the severity of the issue.
These are gel-like substances that a specialist injects beneath your skin to smooth fine lines, restore volume, enhance facial contours, or soften creases. The fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, poly-l-lactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, autologous fat injections, or polymethylmethacrylate.
The cost of getting dermal fillers mainly depends on the type of fillers. The average price for Hyaluronic Acid fillers is $684, poly-l-lactic acid $853, calcium hydroxyapatite$717, autologous fat injections $2,508, and polymethylmethacrylate $1,058.
The costs of these procedures also differ depending on your location and the specialist you choose. More experienced and renowned specialists like Absolute Cosmetic Medicine might charge more than others, but you are assured of high-quality and safe procedures.
