A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) stated that if cost were no issue, 62 percent of mothers said that they would consider a “mommy makeover.” Even though most of the mom’s out there look great, they may feel like they need a “boost” or something to help them feel rejuvenated.
With moms’ busy schedules, finding the time to prioritize beauty can be difficult, but there are many procedures that can be done to help moms feel confident and take little-to-no downtime.
Cosmetic Injectable Procedures
Injectables like Botox and Juvéderm can help erase fine wrinkles from laughing (or frowning) and add volume to different facial areas. These injectables are the perfect gift for anyone looking to smooth skin creases that have developed with age, soften frown lines and smile lines, give an extra boost to cheek bones, and even return youthful shape and fullness to the lips.
Injectables can also improve the appearance of the eyes and nose. Many people have used injectables to lift the brows, add volume to hollow, undereye circles, and even add height to the bridge of the nose.
The best part about injectables is that the procedures themselves are minimally invasive and depending on how many areas you choose to treat, they can be completed relatively quickly, most times in under an hour.
The latest addition to the Juvederm family of fillers, Vollure, has stirred up quite a buzz because it is the only FDA approved Hyaluronic Acid filler that lasts 18 months!
Cosmetic Laser Procedures
Whether it be from melasma during pregnancy or sitting out in the sun at children’s’ sporting events, many mothers begin to notice brown pigmentation developing in their late 20s and beyond. For these tricky and difficult to treat skin issues, the Fraxel Dual laser treatment is the perfect choice for making your skin glow.
Fraxel can treat different areas including the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Patients who have had the Fraxel treatment are usually in the office between 1 ½ – 2 hours. The treatment itself can feel a little hot and prickly, but following the treatment there is no discomfort. Recovery time generally lasts anywhere from 4-5 days where there may be some slight redness, swelling, and light peeling.
Another cosmetic procedure many mothers are interested in to rejuvenate their skin is Fractora. The Fractora procedure can be used on a wide range of areas where patients feel they can benefit from skin tightening. Some patients choose to have the procedure performed on their entire face and neck while others focus on specific areas like the upper and lower eyelids, the forehead and brows, the cheeks and lower face, the neck, lip lines, and laugh lines.
Fractora works by delivering radiofrequency, or RF, energy to the target area via microscopic pins which produce heat underneath the skin. This heat promotes the growth of collagen and tightens the skin, smooths wrinkles, improves pore size, and evens out pigmentation.
With today’s moms being so busy between work, taking care of the kids, and doing stuff around the house, it’s hard to fit exercise into the schedule. For those mom’s who still have a little “pooch” or “bra bulge” that won’t disappear no matter how much they try, CoolSculpting may be the answer.
CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. This innovative, non-surgical contouring treatment uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from your body. CoolSculpting reduces fat in common trouble areas that tend to be diet and exercise-resistant. The most popular areas to treat include the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, knees, banana roll, saddlebags, bra bulge, and chin. This safe, FDA-cleared, non-invasive, and effective treatment has little to no downtime.
Moms do so much for their families and deserve to feel as amazing as the mothers that they are. Whether you’re a mom that wants to feel confident or you’re looking for a way to show your mom that she deserves to feel beautiful, a cosmetic procedure may be the perfect gift this Mother’s Day.
