Cosmetic Procedures and the Importance of Caring for Your Skin

Woman with flawless skin on face and neckMost of us know the feeling of looking in the mirror over the course of our lives and seeing the changes in our skin as we age. You may even think, “Gee, I need a facelift” to your reflection before you sigh and walk away.

Many believe this “all or nothing” approach to aging skin is the only option. But is that true? Do we really only have two choices: either grudgingly put up with our aging skin, or have cosmetic surgery?

This article will describe the other options that are available for aging skin treatment and the importance of regular skin care.

Regular Skin Care

It is important to care for your skin every day to give you the best chance of maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. Regular skin care routines that are customised to your skin type, facials and tailor-made skin peels all help to optimise the results of any clinical procedure. After all, it is our skin that is the foundation of our youthful looks. We recommend that everyone develop  a regular set of skin-care procedures. We can help.

Effective Non-Surgical Skin Care

There are some other procedures that are available in a clinical environment that you may not have considered. Here are four non-surgical alternatives to a face-lift or neck-lift that provide excellent results with minimum risk or discomfort.

Skin Peels

A skin peel is beneficial for people who want to fast-track their skin care programme beyond basic care procedures. It is a process by which a clinical-strength treatment is applied to the face in order to reveal clear, glowing, and youthful-looking skin.

A skin peel is far superior to an ordinary facial in terms of truly visible results and long-term durability. These procedures are only administered by doctors, nurses, and paramedical aestheticians that are educated and certified.

Thread Lift

Another procedure you could consider is something called a “thread lift”. This procedure uses small threads to lift the skin to a more youthful and favourable position, and provides some benefits over more invasive surgical procedures.

  • Minimal discomfort
  • Short recovery period
  • Lower risk than a surgical procedure

 

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Another option for non-surgical skin care is wrinkle-relaxing injections. In this method, purified protein is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles, relaxing the muscles and inhibiting their ability to contract, thereby softening or eliminating overlying wrinkles.

These procedures produce results within 3 to 7 days that last for between 3 to 5 months, and are ideal for frown lines between eyebrows, wrinkles on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

Dermal Fillers

The final option we will share now are called “dermal fillers”. In this method, an inert substance is injected below the skin surface to add volume, fill out fine lines, reduce wrinkles, and smooth facial contours.

This treatment is non-permanent and lasts between 6 months and 2 years.
