The Best Non-Surgical Treatments This Summer

If you’ve been working hard to get into shape for the summer, it’s normal to look at your cosmetic treatment options. Summer actually presents the best opportunity to get these procedures done because you’ll likely have a little extra time on your hands – and with quick results, you can enjoy them sooner rather than later. Here are some of our best non-surgical treatment options to consider this summer.

Body Sculpting

Are you having difficulty shedding fat in problem areas such as the belly, thighs, and buttocks? Body sculpting can be an effective way to put the finishing touches on your body. This type of treatment is also known as body shaping or body contouring. It works to remove fat deposits in these problem areas, enhancing contours and achieving a toned, tight look. Liposuction is the most popular minimally invasive body sculpting procedure. It comes with minimal downtime and can achieve the most transformative results out of any body contouring procedure. During treatment, an incision is made and a cannula (hollow tube) attached to a surgical vacuum is inserted to remove fat cells.

The best in non-surgical body contouring is CoolSculpting. It helps eliminate fat cells beneath the skin through a process known as cryolipolysis, which cools the fat cells to a freezing temperature. The frozen fat cells are then eliminated by the body, leaving you with a leaner and more sculpted shape over time. This procedure usually takes an hour to complete and requires no recovery time.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like products injected into the skin to plump the skin, soften creases, smooth fine lines, enhance facial contours, and restore volume. They achieve instant results and have minimal downtime, which means you can get right back to your favorite summer activities. Dermal filler results can even last up to two years, depending on the product used. Types of dermal fillers include calcium hydroxylapatite, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and PPLA (Poly-L-Lactic Acid). There are many different dermal filler brands available, and Dr. Richardson can help you select the right one for your goals.


Botox® is an injectable treatment formulated from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In specific doses, it’s used in the temporary smoothing of wrinkles on the face such as the crow’s feet and frown lines. Along with anti-aging results, Botox can be an exceptional non-invasive option for facial contouring and slimming. This is achieved by targeting the masseter muscles located behind the jaw. The muscles then relax, making the jawline rounder and the cheeks slimmer. With Botox, there’s no downtime required. Final results can be expected in about two weeks and you’ll see improvement for about three to six months.
