Non-Invasive vs. Invasive: What's the Difference?

Permanent Facial ContouringThere are many ways that we can change the way we look with cosmetic surgery, and not all of them have to actually involve surgery.  That can be great news for anyone who is shy about going under the knife or showing just early signs of aging.

If you're interested in a little cosmetic intervention, it's worth your time to do your research.  There are many procedures out there, both invasive and non-invasive, that can help you achieve your goals and enhance your appearance.

Invasive Procedures

An invasive procedure is essentially surgery. It is a medical procedure in which the skin is broken in some way, such as with an incision.  One way to think about it is this: it's most likely invasive if it leaves a scar.  Some may view this as a drawback, but the reality is that even given all of the non-surgical and non-invasive options out there, often the traditional surgical route can produce the most dramatic and long-lasting results.

The Masri Clinic offers many procedures of a surgical or invasive nature, including the following:

Non-Invasive Procedures

Non-invasive procedures are those which leave the skin intact and unbroken.  They have become increasingly popular in recent years, not just because of the lack of a scar but because they often involve less time during treatment and afterward for recovery.  They can be a particularly good option for individuals with early signs of aging, as well as those with health considerations that may not make them good candidates for more invasive procedures.

The Masri Clinic offers many non-invasive procedures, including the following:

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Just to make things interesting, doctors often use a third term: "minimally invasive". This generally refers to procedures which do involve surgery but require only small incisions to be made in the skin. The benefit is that minimally invasive procedures often involve a shorter healing time and fewer risks compared to their more invasive counterparts.

Minimally invasive procedures are becoming increasingly more common these days. A good example is endoscopic surgery, in which a small camera device is inserted through tiny incisions. This helps to guide the surgeon during surgery so that large incisions do not need to be made.
