Skin Deep: Five non-invasive beauty treatments to try instead of Botox

Those entertaining the idea of a face lift need not go under the knife or splurge on a Botox procedure when there are non-invasive (and minimally-invasive) treatments that can provide a natural and curiously high-tech alternative to beauty treatments that improve the colour, texture and firmness of the facial skin while treatment any specific aesthetic concerns one might have. Here are five non-invasive treatments  to try instead of Botox…

1. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
A non-invasive therapeutic treatment, also known as photofacial, that uses light energy to target certain areas of the skin — gently heating up unwanted cells, reducing dark spots, skin discolorations, and rejuvenate the cells while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Microcurrent facial therapy
A non-invasive low-voltage electric-therapy that stimulates the facial muscles and encourage the increase of anti-ageing protection, collagen and elastin production for firmer and more defined skin. Much like a work-out for the face.

3. Ultherapy (HIFU)
A non-invasive high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat up the muscle and fat tissues underneath the dermis to increase the flow of blood or lymph, promote collagen production and give the face a natural lift.

4. Mesotherapy
A minimal-invasive technique that uses a micro-needle to inject vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant-based extracts and hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate and tighten skin, promote elastin and collagen production and in some cases, removes excess fat.

5. Cosmetic Acupuncture
A minimally-invasive facial therapy that uses hair-fine thin needles to gently puncture specific pressure points in the face to boost blood circulation, decrease redness, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles, and other aesthetic benefits.
