It really is true that when you look good, you feel good. If your look could use an update to help boost your self-image, know that an extensive surgical procedure isn’t your only option. Take a look at a few of these nonsurgical beauty treatments and helpful hints to give you a refreshing look and renewed self-confidence just in time for spring.
1. Get Up and Active
The physical and mental health benefits of regular exercise are endless. Even getting just 20 to 30 minutes of exercise each day can have a significant impact on your mood, energy level and body image. Whether you’re struggling with stress, trouble sleeping or reaching your weight loss goals, making time for regular exercise is one of the best ways to improve your overall health and wellness.
Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can absolutely give you a confidence boost. However, not all stubborn pockets of fat will respond to diet and exercise alone, which can be frustrating when you don’t see the results you want.
Fortunately, CoolSculpting® can help you achieve the sleek contours you’re looking for without requiring surgery or extensive downtime. CoolSculpting® works by freezing only the fat cells in the targeted area, effectively disabling them so that they can be removed by your body’s natural metabolic processes. Over the next several weeks, you should begin to see your smoother, slimmer physique take shape.
One of the most difficult trouble spots to address through diet and exercise is the double chin. This is because the unwanted fat in this area is often governed by genetics, making it nearly impossible to improve through traditional weight loss methods.
If this is the case for you, Kybella™ might be the perfect solution. Kybella™ is an injectable double chin treatment that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that helps your body to metabolize fat. When injected into the submental, or double chin area, Kybella™ breaks down stubborn fat, gradually revealing a better-defined facial profile and jawline.
4. Treat Yourself to a New Wardrobe
If you haven’t treated yourself to an updated wardrobe in years, do yourself and your confidence a favor and invest in a few great new pieces. This is especially important if you have recently reached significant weight loss goals but haven’t yet updated your clothes to match your new figure.
You might be pleasantly surprised at just how much of a difference a few new clothes can have on your body image, especially if they accentuate your natural curves.
5. Injectable Wrinkle Treatments
Although the natural aging process can’t be stopped, you can restore a smoother, more youthful look by scheduling a lunchtime procedure like injectable dermal fillers or a neuromodulator like BOTOX® or Dysport®.
Dermal fillers are used to restore lost facial volume and smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Treatments like BOTOX® and Dysport® work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles near the eyes and forehead that create deep expression lines over time.
In many cases, combining dermal fillers and neuromodulators can provide even more comphreneisve results.
6. SkinPen® Microneedling
What better time to schedule a renewing beauty treatment than spring? Microneedling can target a range of different complexion issues, from minimizing the appearance of fine lines and acne scars to improving overall skin texture. Microneedling can also be combined with PRP therapy for even more comprehensive results.
Quit struggling to find a mascara that won’t clump and will actually give you the results you want. Instead, try LATISSE® eyelash treatment to grow fuller, longer and darker lashes. You simply apply the solution to the base of your eyelashes every night with a special applicator, then watch as your eyelashes gradually become fuller and darker.
While you can still use mascara while using LATISSE®, most women find that there’s no need for any additional eye makeup.
If pregnancy, childbirth or the natural aging process has left you feeling not quite like yourself, Geneveve™ by Viveve® can offer a quick and easy solution. Geneveve™ is a nonsurgical vaginal tightening treatment that uses patented radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production in just one 30-minute session.
The result is a tighter, more youthful look and feel to help you get your old self back and regain your confidence.
Contrary to popular belief, anyone can get cellulite, including very petite women. Unfortunately, however, topical creams and ointments aimed at reducing cellulite don’t tend to produce the dramatic results that you’re looking for.
If the appearance of cellulite is keeping you from loving the way you look, revolutionary Cellfina™ cellulite treatment might be right for you. Cellfina™ can effectively reduce or even eliminate cellulite, and these smooth results can be very long-lasting.
10. Improve Your Posture
You may have heard advice to “fake it until you make it” when it comes to improving your confidence. Well, there may be some truth to that sentiment, at least as far as your posture is concerned. Research has found that sitting upright actually makes you feel more confident in yourself, as opposed to slouching, which can put a damper on your self-esteem.
So even if you’re not feeling particularly peppy on any given day, try giving your posture a lift and see if it also uplifts your mood.
11. Start a Journal
If you’ve been feeling a little down, try jotting down at least one accomplishment that you’ve achieved every day, no matter how small they may seem. This can improve your self-worth and help you recognize just how much you have to celebrate about yourself.
