7 Easy Cosmetic Fixes That Can Completely Change Your Look

Cosmetic fixes

Gone are the days when cosmetic procedures would mean thousands of dollars and weeks of recovery. Nowadays, people are more likely to opt for so-called lunchbreak procedures, cosmetic fixes that take just a couple of hours and mean minimal downtime. Here are some procedures you might want to squeeze into your schedule. 

  • Thread lifts

One of the reasons that skin seems to ‘sag’ as you get older is because collagen production slows down. While you can have a facelift, this is a big step, and some people don’t like the look you can end up with. Thread lifts are a simple alternative to a facelift, where surgeons stitch small parts of loose skin in areas such as the jowls, which causes your body to send collagen to the area to heal it. Because this is done under a local anesthetic, you can recover in just one or two days.

  • Dermal fillers

From plumping up a thinning upper lip to getting rid of under-eye bags, fillers have become the new go-to when people want to turn back the clock. While fillers still come with risks, they’re generally much lower than surgery, and they’re much cheaper. Appointments for dermal fillers generally take less than an hour, so they fit into your busy lifestyle too. 

  • Teeth whitening

If you’re always smiling with your mouth closed, and hate having to bare your teeth, then you might want to consider teeth whitening NYC. A bright white smile can instantly change your look, and everyone loves being around people who look happy. This short, painless procedure is, therefore, a good boost to your confidence. 

  • A non-surgical nose job

Whether you’ve always worried about your nose or noticed imperfections when you first took a selfie, there are ways to change your nose’s appearance without dramatic rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty uses fillers to make your nose look more symmetrical, hide bumps or cover a range of imperfections, and there’s no downtime. While a nose job could cost you over $5,000, the non-surgical option could cost as little as $1,500 and is much less painful.

  • Non-surgical fat removal

While lunchtime liposuction is still a thing, many people worry about the pain and side effects that can come with this kind of fat removal. There is an increasing number of options for people who want to remove fat without the need for needles and incisions. CoolSculpting, for example, cools areas of fat to freezing temperatures, and your body then naturally passes these fat cells. This can be great for areas like a double chin and upper arms, which can add years to your appearance. 

  • Getting a good hair color

Many women, from the moment they see their first grey, will reach for the dye bottle and never look back. The problem is the color you pick might not be right for you. As you get older, the color that suits your skin tone best will often change, which is why you should treat yourself to an appointment with a colorist. They will be able to tell you the best colors to suit your skin tone, and a good cut and color can instantly update your look. 

  • See a personal stylist

If you want to improve your looks, yet hate the thought of cosmetic procedures, then simply hiring a personal stylist could make a big difference to your look. Stylists aren’t just for the rich and famous when women hit 50, they often struggle with what to wear, so spending just a couple of hours with a fashion expert could help them update their look and never have a bad wardrobe day again.
