Maintaining a beauty routine every day can take a lot of time, money, and effort that it’s understandable for some women to cut corners. On average, a woman in the US would take an hour per day to do hair and makeup, while some would have lengthy skincare routines. Add to that the times in the year they get waxed and get treatments like facials, full-body scrubs, and tanning.
Fortunately, there are many short-cut treatments that are safe and affordable, and have long-lasting results. Plus, you won’t have to go under the needle! So if you’re looking to save time and money down the line, here are some non-invasive beauty treatments you can try.
Laser hair removal
Laser technology is the go-to solution for non-invasive beauty treatments. It offers a quick, less painful fix to many beauty issues women have. If you’re tired of shaving or waxing your armpits, legs, or facial hair, you might want to invest in laser hair removal. This treatment is not only effective at removing and thinning hair, but it also helps whiten those areas. It’s also relatively painless compared to plucking and waxing.
This treatment may cost a bit and take five to six sessions, but it offers lasting results, saving you time and money down the road. Say goodbye to disposable razors, shaving creams, and waxing products!
Non-surgical fat removal
If you have stubborn fat deposits in your body that simply won’t go away even if you work out and eat right, then you can have them removed without going under the knife. Non-surgical fat removal and body contouring procedures include CoolSculpting®, Kybella®, Venus Freeze™, SculpSure®, among others.
With these procedures, you can shed fat in your belly, underarms, chin, and other parts to make them look leaner and more toned. They cost around $800 to $1400 per session, which is a lot cheaper and has a shorter recovery time compared to surgical options.
Do you take almost an hour a day making sure your eyebrows are on fleek? If you have thin, shapeless eyebrows, you can opt for microblading. This state-of-the-art procedure is a form of cosmetic tattoo that fills your eyebrows semi-permanently. Many women love this treatment as it creates natural-looking hair strokes and saves on daily brow makeup, which can add up. With just around $450-$800, you can have perfect brows for as long as three years.
Just like eyebrows, there’s a semi-permanent and hassle-free solution to short eyelashes. Save plenty of time and money on fake lashes by getting eyelash extensions. There are many options to choose from, depending on the look you want to achieve. So if you wear fake lashes all the time, this option is perfect for you.
Dermal fillers are an umbrella term for gel-like substances (Juvederm and Perlane being the most popular) injected beneath the skin to achieve different results. There are specific treatments for tightening sagging skin, reducing or adding volume to a facial feature, smoothing wrinkles, contouring the face, and creating a more youthful, rested look. Plus, dermal injections have no downtime. In fact, you can get one on a lunch break and return to work looking refreshed and younger.
Anti-aging facial products can be quite expensive, plus it would take time to see results. Chemical peels can be a great alternative for people who want younger-looking skin. This treatment can cost around $600 to $900 and is relatively painless. It’s also a very safe procedure. It works by stripping away dead skin cells, leaving your skin blemish-free and cleansed. Plus, it helps reduce the signs of aging like scars, dark spots, and wrinkles.
A tried and tested treatment celebrities love, oxygen facials are a great addition to your skincare routine. These non-invasive treatments use a high-tech compression machine that pushes oxygen, as well as small-moleculed skincare products like botanicals, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin treatments, into the skin. The results are brighter and plump skin sans fine lines and age spots. Plus, the results can be immediate, so if you have an important event to attend, this treatment is the perfect option.
Keratin hair straightening
If you have stubborn and frizzy hair, chances are you spend hours straightening your hair with a flat iron, which can further damage your tresses. If you’re looking to keep that straight and flowy look, opt for a keratin hair straightening treatment instead. This treatment is quick and affordable, at just around $400, with results lasting for about three months.
These non-invasive treatments may cost more than your skincare products and makeup, but they will save you more time and money down the line. Plus, you’ll get better, longer-lasting results.
