As a small business owner, you know how important it is to look your best. You have a responsibility to your business to put your best foot forward and represent your business well. Cosmetic treatments are one option that some choose to use to help in that endeavor. If the idea of cosmetic treatments brings to mind images of invasive plastic surgery, not to worry: there are plenty of treatment options that don’t require surgery.


People tend to be a little wary when it comes to toxins. Despite their (deservedly) scary reputation, certain toxins come in handy every once in a while. Such is the case with botulinum toxin type A, otherwise known as Botox. Though it has other uses, Botox is most well-known for creating a more youthful appearance in the face, especially around the eyes, forehead, mouth, and neck. 

It reduces wrinkles in a targeted area by blocking muscular nerve signals. That leads to muscle weakness in that area, limiting or eliminating that muscle’s ability to contract and preventing wrinkles from forming.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth naturally yellow as you age. Combine that with their propensity to become stained by various foods and drinks, and you have a recipe for teeth that don’t look their best despite the most disciplined brushing and flossing regimen. That’s where teeth whitening comes in. Whitened teeth help you look more youthful and their enhanced beauty can leave you feeling more confident. 

There are a few different methods you can use to whiten your teeth. You can purchase at-home whitening kits for an affordable, albeit less effective, solution. Alternatively, you can get whitening treatments from your dentist. That’s usually more expensive but tends to yield superior results.

Chemical Peels

Your skin has a profound impact on your appearance as a whole. The more even and clear your skin, the healthier it appears. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin, exfoliating and retexturing it. This can improve acne, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and sun damage. This is one cosmetic treatment that advanced planning is a must for. Give yourself plenty of time to prepare for the peel and recover. You should expect to prepare your skin for 2-4 weeks before receiving a chemical peel. Recovery can take 1-2 weeks before your skin is fully healed.

Of course, if you want to look your best, it’s helpful to give yourself your best chance by making lifestyle decisions that will promote a healthier, more youthful appearance. Eating a nutritious, balanced diet, exercising regularly, staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep every night are excellent ways to start. Doing so gives your body the tools it needs to recover and rejuvenate so you can look and feel your best every day, no surgery needed.
