One of the best ways to give yourself a little boost in happiness and motivation is to indulge in a quality beauty treatment. Far from being vain, these treats are a healthy part of self-care – something everyone deserves. To help you get started on your mission to feel good, here are five formerly expensive beauty treatments that are now surprisingly affordable:

  • A New Smile

Dentists are back open again and it’s not all fillings and root canal work they’re looking at. The cosmetic dentist industry is also back and ready to help you smile with pride again. Affordable dental veneers are a great treatment to consider if you have always wanted a celebrity smile. Veneers used to be only in the price range of A-listers, but in the modern world, they’re affordable for many more people. 

  • Hair Extensions

Hair extensions used to cost so much money, and the quality and application methods weren’t even that great. A huge amount of the cost was down to the cost of the extensions alone. There were also few beauticians with the right expertise, so you’d end up paying more because of the high demand. 

Nowadays, there are so many options for a fuller head of hair; some you don’t even need to go to the salon for, such as:

  • Tape-in
  • Keratin
  • Weft
  • Micro ring
  • Clip-in 

There are many considerations when it comes to choosing the right hair extensions. However, in 2020, it is a lot easier and cheaper to get a fuller head of hair this way. 

  • Injectables

Minimally invasive procedures like anti-wrinkle injections and filler are incredibly popular, so much so that rates of use have more than doubled in the last ten years. Injectables aren’t for everyone, but if you do fancy anti-aging and smoothing of the face that goes beyond makeup or a facial, then it could be worth considering. The treatment is much more affordable than it once was, simply because the supply has gone up. Just make sure you use a reputable provider who is qualified to complete the work. Never seek out cheap deals when it comes to facial treatments. 

  • Fancy Skin Regimes

It used to cost a lot of money to get the kind of fancy skin regimes you would only hear about in celeb mags. Now, you can indulge in some amazing products with high-grade ingredients, for less.

Budget brands are offering high-end ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, and peptides within their products at affordable prices. With a little research, you can give yourself great skincare and facials right in your own home, without having to be a celebrity, or drop an entire month’s wages on one set of creams. 

  • Liposuction In Your Lunch Break

Lunchtime lipo is a quick procedure you can get done with little more than a local anesthetic. Unlike traditional treatment done under general anesthetic, which necessitates a lot of downtime, lunchtime lipo is cheaper and quicker. It still has to be done by somebody qualified and in a clinical environment, of course. 

It is probably better to exercise more and eat less, but if you’re after a cheeky headstart on your weight-loss mission, then now might be the time to look into lunchtime lipo. 

Many beauty treatments are now cheaper than ever, and more accessible too. If you’re feeling more drab and dull than beautiful, maybe now is the time to invest in a beauty treatment or two.
