Mothers lead busy lives — whether juggling a career and raising a family or never clocking out of the equally chaotic stay-at-home-mom job. Amid the running around, women tend to put their own needs on the back-burner while they take care of everyone else. But the truth is that self-care is a necessary component in your life, even if that means setting aside an afternoon once a month for yourself.
Fortunately, there is now a wide variety of nonsurgical treatments that can help you look and feel more rejuvenated and refreshed without having to carve out a chunk of time for recovery. If you’ve been skipping out on taking care of yourself, you might want to consider getting a nonsurgical mommy makeover.
What Is a Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover?
A nonsurgical mommy makeover is a popular combination procedure that requires zero surgery and minimal — if any — downtime. Just like with a surgical mommy makeover, this procedure allows you to pick and choose which nonsurgical treatments you’d like to include — many of which can be performed in a single appointment.
What’s Included in a Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover?
The beauty of the nonsurgical mommy makeover is that it is completely customizable to fit your unique needs and goals. You can choose from a variety of treatments, ranging from nonsurgical body contouring to facial rejuvenation and more. The following treatments are just a few of the most common options that women often choose to include in their nonsurgical mommy makeover.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring
The right nonsurgical body treatment for you will depend on your specific trouble spots and goals for your final results. Treatments like CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT®, for example, are aimed at removing stubborn pockets of fat that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise.
Like surgical options such as liposuction and abdominoplasty, these nonsurgical treatments work best once you are already at or very close to your target weight.
EMSCULPT comes with the added benefit of also improving muscle tone in your abdominal area and/or buttocks, while CoolSculpting can treat unwanted fat in areas like your waist, hips, thighs and upper arms.
Other noninvasive treatments you might consider are Profound® RF Cellulite Reduction and miraDry® Sweat Reduction.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Those looking for a more youthful, refreshed look might consider adding a facial treatment or two to their nonsurgical mommy makeover. Laser skin rejuvenation can be an excellent choice for anyone concerned with sun-damaged-skin, uneven skin tone or texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, redness and other pigmentation issues.
Injectables like BOTOX®, Dysport® and fillers can help to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also add volume to your cheeks and lips. Kybella® is another injectable option and is used to smooth away the appearance of a double chin.
Other popular nonsurgical facial treatments include microneedling and Profound® RF Skin Tightening.
Nonsurgical Feminine Rejuvenation
For many women, childbirth and the natural aging process changes their body in undesirable ways, creating new problems such as vaginal laxity and dryness, less satisfaction during sexual intercourse and urinary stress incontinence. If these are concerns for you, know that you now have a range of nonsurgical treatments that can help — no surgery required.
Viveve® nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation, for instance, uses cooled monopolar radiofrequency waves and cryotherapy to help tone and tighten vaginal tissue. Most Viveve treatments only take around 30 minutes to complete, and many women see optimal results after a single appointment.
The O Spot Shot is another nonsurgical option, helping women to regain sexual satisfaction. This treatment uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance the sensitivity of the clitoris and, in some cases, improve urinary stress incontinence as well.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover?
Virtually anyone who is looking to improve a specific cosmetic concern on their face or body without requiring surgery can be a good candidate for a nonsurgical mommy makeover. It is important to realize that there are limitations to any cosmetic procedure, including nonsurgical treatments.
If you’re opting for body contouring, it’s best to achieve and maintain a healthy, stable weight for a few months beforehand. Similarly, the results of facial rejuvenation treatments like injectables, microneedling and others can gradually fade away, requiring touch-up treatments in the future.
However, many people feel that the benefits of not having extensive downtime or surgery outweigh these limitations. If you’re considering a nonsurgical mommy makeover, start by scheduling a consultation with an experienced, reputable provider to discuss your unique wish list.
