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?

Nose Threadlifts Or Nose Fillers – Which Is Better?

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.

7 Things To Know Before A Facial Threadlift

Going under the knife is fast becoming a dated way of reversing the signs of aging. Anti-aging cosmetic treatments are more subtle – the idea is to look younger and better, without looking different. Facial threadlifts are now popular amongst those who want a quick lift without having to take the downtime of a surgical facelift. Here are some things you need to know before you go for the threadlift.   1. THEY ANCHOR THE SKIN WITH CONES OR BARBS Facial threads contain either cones or barb sutures which help anchor the skin and lift it to the desired position.   2. THEY STAY IN YOUR SKIN, BUT NOT FOREVER A facial threadlift procedure involves inserting a medical suture beneath the skin which repositions sagging skin to a more youthful-looking position.

The Plasma Eye Lift

Many people want youthful, firm skin around their eyes, but not many are willing to put themselves through surgery for that eye lift. But as long as there is the understanding that for many cases of these lid droopiness, something needs to be done, it’s already a good start. Apparently, there are treatments that can tighten periorbital skin that don’t require needles, or burn a hole through your wallet. One of these newest non-invasive treatments is the Neogen Plasma Eyelift. Traditional lasers and light-based technologies require a chromophore such as pigment, blood or water to work. Neogen provides a controlled, uniform heating across the whole skin without damaging the outermost layers. Deep dermal heating is achieved with this treatment, which we know stimulates collagen production, and at the same time, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firming skin from the inside out. With the Neogen, plasma energy is the key. Touted as the fourth state of matter, plasma energy is converted from nitrogen gas and delivered in controlled, Continue Reading
