Each individual has their own reasons for venturing into the realm of cosmetic procedures. Perhaps you think your nose is too big, or too small; you don’t like how your cheeks look or how your eyelids disappear into your skull. You may suffer from brown spots for a variety of reasons and want clearer skin. No one is perfect, but there are ways to adjust your look to help with your self-esteem and overall health.

Not everyone is a candidate for rhinoplasty, but there are plenty of other ways to enhance your looks. Here are 6 cosmetic procedures that are trending in 2020.

1. Botox Injections

The rise of Botox injections for cosmetic procedures is on the rise and can help an individual with many different beautifying and health issues. The injection of botulinum toxin can be used to smooth out wrinkles and dents in the skin, which typically last for anywhere from three to six months.  A diluted combination of this toxin is also used to combat migraine headaches in several people.

2. Cosmetic Tattoos

Imagine never having to reapply lipstick, eyeshadow, or groom your eyebrows ever again. Cosmetic tattooing is a relatively new procedure but has lasting effects on one’s lips, eyes, and eyebrows.  The procedure is similar to a regular tattoo, but with more delicacy. A microneedle is used in these delicate areas and the types of inks will fade somewhat, as regular tattoos do, but will last a lifetime, saving the person time and money.

3. Body Contouring

This goes beyond tummy tucks and liposuction. Today there are procedures that are less and noninvasive that help to rid the body of fat and help to create a better-defined figure. The use of ultraviolet lights, lasers, and temperature-based procedures can reduce the fat in targeted areas of the body with little to no pain. These are newer measures and can be quite expensive, yet very effective.

4. Collagen Regenerating Treatments

This procedure is used to help tighten and lift the skin and can be used on the face and neck with amazing results. This technique helps to restart the collagen regrowth process by using micro-focused ultrasound waves. This allows your skin to tighten and lift any loose or wrinkled skin over a period of time.

5. Oxygen Injections

This is a relatively new technique that places oxygen, and other concentrated ingredients, deep into the dermis. This micro-encapsulated oxygen is to help with inflammation, to reduce lines and plump up wrinkles. However, it’s not a long-lasting type of procedure.

6. Brown Spot Removal

Many individuals suffer from brown spots on their faces, hands, and neck and wish to have clearer skin. These spots can be successfully removed with cryotherapy, which uses liquid nitrogen. This is basically a method to freeze the skin and turn it back to the original color.

If you are interested in a procedure to correct your physical looks, be sure to find a certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic professional. Someone with training and the proper equipment will be able to help you achieve the natural look you are longing for.
