Say goodbye to hollow eyes
When stress and persistent lack of sleep leads to dark circles and hollows under your eyes, you know it’s time to worry. They not just mar your beauty, they make you appear ill and unhealthy. Certainly, you do not want to go to work every day looking sick, weary and aged. A session with dermal fillers like Juvederm can remarkably cover-up, rather fill-up your hollows. Juvederm are hyaluronic acid based new age fillers that can be administered under the skin to give it more volume. They not just fill up the hollow areas, but also fill the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, making you look healthier and younger. All in a matter of a few minute!
Get rid of Acne scars
One of the most common and torturous beauty scares are acne and the scars they leave. If you are fed up of covering up your acne scars with make up every day, you should meet a dermatologist and try a laser anti-scar procedure. The laser procedure may take 4-6 sessions of a few minutes each which you can get done in your lunch breaks. Procedures like Scar Lift and Revlite photofacial are ideal.
Get rid of your frown lines
The frown lines on our forehead develop with time and age as the worry lines that keep coming all life become sort of permanent. They give us a tired, stressed out and aged look. However, the frown lines can be taken care of by Botox wonderfully. When administered into the muscles causing the frown, the drug prevents them from taking this action, thereby getting rid of the frown lines. The procedure takes a few minutes and its effect lasts for several months. If taken from an earlier age, the procedure would also delay the onset of the wrinkles that are caused by muscle action.
Skin exfoliation to rejuvenate the skin
The dullness and lack of sheen of the skin is often because the dead cells are clouding the surface. Some good and quick exfoliating treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion can remove the dead layer and bring back a youthful glow. Diamond Polishing is another technique in which the skin is polished with diamonds fixed on tips that electronically move on the skin. This is useful in removing dead cells, scars, tanning and overall improves glow and complexion of the skin.
Smile without the crow’s feet
Do you hate the bunch of wrinkles that crowd around your eyes when you smile? Years of laughing and smiling inadvertently leave us with a bunch of fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, often referred to as the crow’s feet. Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm can reduce their appearances, cutting down the years on your life’s slate. Skin tightening with Radiofrequency procedures also help by increasing skin collagen and elastin.
