The Non-Invasive Treatment Revolution

*  Stars

Anti-Ageing Procedures Non-invasive treatments are ideal for those of us that perhaps possess a phobia or a reluctance to go under the knife. The method they use requires no incisions or removal of any body tissues. None of the tools used physically enter the body and may not break the skin, and so for these reasons, non-surgical procedures are becoming more and more popular. The ageing process can be slowed down and some visible effects can be reversed as treatments are becoming more and more accessible to the masses. You shouldn't have to put up with unsightly wrinkles or loose skin, and now you no longer have to. The Liquid Facelift One of the most popular and successful non-surgical procedures to combat the signs of ageing is the liquid facelift. Also known as the 8-point lift, this method involves injecting advanced dermal fillers into various areas of the face in order [...]

A Healthy Lifestyle Before undergoing any surgical procedure, you should make sure that your body is in as healthy a state as possible. Depending on your chosen procedure, a good surgeon will likely advise that you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise routine. It is also advised to try and kick any habits such as smoking and consuming alcohol prior to surgery.

Laser Hair Removal Facts

*  Stars

Reasons To Get Laser Hair Removal Current attitudes within our society towards bodily hair aren't that great. It is often seen as unsightly in most places - even more so for women - as we tirelessly strive for smooth, hairless skin. But this can be a constant battle of excessive shaving and waxing that becomes tiring and time-consuming. Laser hair removal is ideal for those of us that are sick of a continuous maintenance routine as it is a more permanent solution, and is perfect to reduce excessive hair in unwanted places. How Does It Work? This treatment involves shaving the target area in order to more easily focus the laser directly at the base of the hair follicles. The heat stimulates the follicles so that they can no longer produce the hair. Due to the nature in which hair grows, 6 to 8 treatments are required over 8 to [...]
