5 Cosmetic Procedures To Help You Look Younger

As surgical face lifts become less and less the treatment of choice for people wanting to rejuvenate their facial appearances, here are the most effective non-invasive cosmetic procedures to help people backtrack a little and relive their, younger-looking, fresher-faced days.   1. BOTOX I know everyone’s greatest fear about doing Botox. No one wants to look artificially frozen, no matter how many wrinkles Botox may smoothen out. Most people develop forehead furrows, annoying frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet as early as the mid to late twenties (‘motor’ wrinkles – they appear only on expression) and Botox not only helps to soften these lines, it can also prevent them from becoming static or permanant. Don’t get greedy and ask for a long-lasting dose as that will likely freeze expression and give skin an unnatural and awkward sheen – a sign of over-treating with Botox. Instead, opt for smaller doses just to relax the muscles a little instead, without limiting normal expression.   2. FOREVER YOUNG BBL Sciton’s Broadband Continue Reading

How To Banish Dark Eye Circles

Ever wondered why dark eye circles plague you like a persistent ex, even when you try to be virtuous with ample sleep? Well, if you think about it, we blink a whopping 28,000 times a day. Women also apply eye makeup, and tug and pull the delicate skin around the eyes to remove it daily. We don’t learn about caring for our eyelids until fine lines and wrinkles appear, or when they start to droop – too late.   TEAR TROUGH The tear trough is an under-recognized cause of perpetually tired-looking eyes. An anatomical issue rather than a true dark circle, this common depression lies below the inner corner of the lower eyelids, casting a dark shadow. This hollowing often worsens with age due to volume depletion and loss of skin’s elasticity. If the cause of your dark underye circles is the tear trough, placement of natural tear trough fillers will correct those age-piling sunken undereye hollows instantly.     PIGMENTATION Skin allergies, frequent eye rubbing, sun damage can contribute Continue Reading

Best Lifting Treatments For The Face

I saw one of those aging time-lapse videos and it was horrifying to watch a face age instantly over 30 seconds. But the truth is, that’s a playback of what happens in actual life and everyone will get wrinkles and our skin will eventually sag. If you’ve approached your 40s with care, chances are you are still looking pretty good. But for the rest of us who never used sunscreens from a young age, the cumulative effects of sun exposure and age might have resulted in wrinkles and a loss of collagen, resulting in a gradually drooping face. Whatever the case, do not wait till your 50s to start on skin tightening treatments, because it will probably be too late. The earlier you start skin tightening treatments, the younger you will look in later years to come.   ULTHERAPY – BEST FACE LIFTER Ultherapy is the secret of many V-shaped faces around. This FDA-approved treatment uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to stimulate new collagen in the deep supporting structures Continue Reading

I Transformed My Eyes With These Simple Tricks

Do you feel like you are spending a little too much time applying concealer or makeup around the eyes to look more fresh? Too much makeup can age the skin around the eyes faster, turning this into a vicious cycle. Here are some simple tricks that people are doing for eye beauty.   1. “GOLDEN EYE’ Advancements in medical technology means that we can now perform skin-tightening treatments around the eye safely and with comfort. Golden Eye uses HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), a treatment that rejuvenates the delicate skin around the eyes in a painless manner. Using focal lines and micro-ultrasound with a cold laser, the energy is passed progressively at 1mm, 1.5mm, and 2mm for tissue regeneration. Expect a firming and eye-brightening effect.   2. THERMAGE EYES For a deeper and more long-lasting treatment, try Thermage Eyes, which uses a more energy-intensive radiofrequency treatment to smoothen fine lines and wrinkles and for an eye lift.   3. SMART EYE LASERS Not a lot of lasers are suitable for Continue Reading

Nose Threadlifts Or Nose Fillers – Which Is Better?

The non-surgical rhinoplasty is probably one of the most common non-invasive cosmetic procedures done today. A quick, virtually painless alternative to the surgical nose job, the risks are lower and there is very minimal, if not, zero downtime. Non-surgical nose enhancements can be done using dermal fillers (touted the ‘liquid rhinoplasty’) or nose threads, but do you know which one you should choose?   1. NOSE FILLERS – THE LIQUID RHINOPLASTY Dermal fillers can be used to lift the nose bridge or to refine the nose tip. This comes packaged in a syringe and is injected directly into areas that your doctor wants to modify. Hyaluronic acid fillers are most commonly used, being dissolvable easily if there is a need to. Once injected, they are slowly broken down by the body over the following months, and last on average 9 to 18 months. Being an injectable, nose fillers can be used to hide a bump on the nose, or make it less visible. It can also be cleverly used to Continue Reading
