Years ago, people who wanted to kiss their facial wrinkles goodbye did so by spending thousands of dollars and several weeks recovering from a surgical facelift. Today, however, people who want to change the way they look have additional options. Procedures can be done in a doctor's office with little or no anesthesia rather than in an operating room. Here is a rundown of some of the nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic procedures that are not due to a medical condition are generally not covered by insurance.
In some cases, more than one treatment session is needed to achieve the desired result. Side effects are generally temporary and the risks and recovery times vary. Talk to your doctor about how long it might take you to recover.
