Within recent years, it seems a lot of us are opting to improve ourselves, especially over the December period, with last month being one of the busiest for plastic surgeons. The growing innovation in non-surgical cosmetic procedures now means that without going under the knife, the same results can be achieved to restore the face to a more youthful state.
The liquid facelift is set to revolutionise the non-invasive market, aiming to give you a youthful complexion without discomfort and lengthy recovery times. During the procedure, dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse and Restylane are injected into the skin to lift and contour features. These fillers aim to maintain the natural proportions of the face yet the frame is restored and skin is pulled back for youthfulness. The results include a gentle lift in facial features, a reduction in wrinkles and enhancement on natural contours in the face. As this is injected, the liquid facelift can either be used to lift the entire face or focus on specific facial features. Even though injections can cause bruising, healing time for the liquid facelift is minimal, but the results last one to two years.
Injections and surgery not your thing? There are tips you can carry out in your day-to-day life to maintain younger looking skin:
- Improve the quality of your skin with effective skincare products. Even though these will not restore your face, they can help amend texture or even out colouring.
- When out in the sun, always ensure that you are wearing a high SPF suntan lotion. As sun damage is one of the most common ageing signs, it is crucial that your neck, hands and face are protected.
- Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It is advised that we should all be consuming around eight glasses of water a day. Proper hydration prevents skin from looking dry and aged.
