Can You Boost Your Mental Health With Aesthetic Procedures?

More than two in five Australians are currently living with a mental illness, and there’s an argument that certain aesthetic procedures can improve people’s mental health.

Non-invasive cosmetic procedures are expected to grow by around 15% over the next four years, but which ones offer the biggest mental health benefits? Keep reading to find out more.

#1 – Sun-damaged skin treatments

Australia’s hot climate means that sun-damaged skin is common. There has also been an increase in the number of skin cancer cases in Australia in recent years because of excess sun exposure.

Sun-damaged skin can affect a person’s mental health as it can cause pigmentation issues, wrinkles, broken capillaries, and more.

Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments are effective ways to treat sun-damaged skin. Chemical peels involve a chemical solution being applied to the skin to strip away damaged layers. With microdermabrasion, an abrasive tool is used to remove damaged skin.

Vaginal rejuvenation

Vaginal issues are common in women, but it’s often post-childbirth where most issues occur. Studies have found that 43% of women have vaginal dryness 6 months postpartum. 53% also experience tearing during childbirth which can cause laxity, pain during intercourse, and urinary incontinence.

These issues can affect a woman’s confidence and mental health which is why laser vaginal rejuvenation procedures are growing in popularity. This procedure encourages tissue regeneration and new collagen production.

Common vaginal rejuvenation treatments include ThermiVa®, FemiLift, and O shot. These procedures aren’t exclusive to Australia and can be performed anywhere in the world, including New York City and London.

Hair fillers

Around half of all women have noticeable hair loss. Stress, medical conditions, and being in the postpartum period can cause hair loss. Poor mental health and hair loss often go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise that hair fillers are a popular aesthetic procedure.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a type of injectable which is injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth. It’s not for the faint-hearted though as the process involves your blood being drawn out, processed, and injected into your head.

Aesthetic procedures are popular because of the way they make people feel and look. However, they’re also desired by many because of the confidence-boosting effects they can have. So, if there’s a part of your body that’s getting you down, see if there’s an aesthetic procedure that could help.
