For beauty enthusiasts who are always ahead of the curve, chances are they’ve been hearing more about “tweakments” lately in the wake of medical and technological advancements. The aesthetic treatment trend, which refers to the application of non-surgical procedures, such as botox, fillers and liposuction, is gaining in popularity over the past decade. More and more people are willing to try out these cosmetic treatments to improve their overall appearance, as the procedure doesn’t involve going under the knife and general anaesthetic, or staying in the hospital for weeks to fully recover.
But If you aren’t ready for a facial tweakment or still not convinced about the magic of botox, there are still a number of non-invasive treatments that you can try to achieve your beauty goals without looking unnatural. From LED light therapy to cosmetic acupuncture and luxurious facial treatments, we’ve rounded up a list of the best alternatives to botox that will help sculpt the face and tackle signs of ageing for a younger look—no injection required.
1. LED Light Therapy
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, a youthful look can be easily achieved via LED light therapy without the application of wrinkle-reducing fillers. Utilising colour wavelengths of visible light (such as red LED light for stimulating collagen synthesis; blue LED light for treating acne breakouts; as well as yellow LED light for reducing redness) to penetrate the skin at different depths to address different skin concerns, the benefits of this high-tech skincare treatment are plenty.
From boosting the production of collagen and elastin, to minimising lines, wrinkles and faded scars, as well as promoting a more even skin tone, LED light therapy will have your needs covered. Often performed in the form of masks and devices, it’s an ideal, completely non-invasive treatment option for delaying the ageing process and getting a healthier-looking complexion in the long-term.
