What Should a 45-Year Old Look Like?

BY LISA WILLIAMS That is the question puzzling scientists from all across the globe. Researchers have found that humans age at vastly different rates, with some showing signs of premature ageing at a relatively young age, while others still looking youthful well into their fifties!

Why Chin Contouring May Be The Only Treatment You Need This Year

BY LISA WILLIAMS There’s something about a strong, defined chin that’s captivating. A well-balanced facial proportions is one aspect of a beautiful face and the key to balancing out the face lies in the chin.   A receded chin lends the face a shortened appearance. The profile of a receded chin is even more obvious from the side.

Another advantage is that a strong chin can mask any signs of double chin, and give the neck the illusion of a more slender silhouette. To achieve this upgrade, physicians are using advanced liquid face lift products, including dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and even anti-wrinkle Botox, to contour the chin, without undergoing surgery.
