Cosmetic surgery advancements have made it possible to look and feel younger without having to see a scalpel. From injectable treatments to laser skin resurfacing, there is a multitude of treatment options available to fight the most common signs of ageing without needing weeks of recovery.
If you’ve decided that you really want to freshen up your appearance but you don’t know where to start, these are the areas that you should concentrate on first.
4 Areas to Treat if You Want to Look Younger
Your facial muscles are move every time you smile, frown or squint in the sun. Unfortunately, this repetitive movement is what leads to deep lines and wrinkles, particularly across the forehead. These deep lines can make you appear slightly older than you really are but anti-wrinkle injections can help you achieve a smoother, more relaxed appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections also help prevent these expression lines in the future. Of all the beauty treatments at ALC clinics, anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular.
Pigmentation is a natural part of the ageing process but this doesn’t mean that you should let age spots make you feel less confident. Laser skin technology is designed to destroy pigmented cells and rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production, leaving you with a fresh, youthful appearance.
As we age, we begin to lose volume in our faces, including our lips. Thin lips can instantly make you look much older but dermal fillers can be used to plump them up again. Along with giving you a fuller mouth, lip fillers can iron out the lines and wrinkles around your mouth too. If the filler is injected along the border of your lips, it instantly creates more definition, which further enhances your results. Not everyone will require the same amount of lip filler though. Your clinician will advise you accordingly during your consultation.
Where surgery was once the only way to address drooping eyes, today there are non-surgical options such as blepharoplasty that can offer the same results without the downtime. Blepharoplasty can be used to treat double or sagging eyelids as well as under-eye bags and has very similar effects to dermal fillers.
To refresh the eyes, any excess skin will be removed, which will prevent the eye from drooping. If under-eye bags are the problem, excess fat will be removed under the eye in order to smooth it out. Patients can now tighten and lift the skin around the eyes without incisions or scarring. Even crow’s feet can be eliminated through this treatment, which is an added bonus.
If you do want to treat any of these areas, make sure that you choose a reputable clinic that works with qualified doctors. Don’t forget to look at reviews from past patients and at any before and after galleries that the clinics have available – this will give you a good idea of what they’re capable of.
