Quick beauty fixes that don’t involve surgery

Fighting the signs of aging is an uphill battle and a lot of people often resort to surgery as a quick fix. It works, but it’s also very expensive and pretty drastic. If you’ve tried all of the creams and lotions out there and it’s still not working for you, but you don’t want to go down the surgery route, there are still some options out there. These are the best quick fix beauty treatments that don’t involve surgery.

Teeth Whitening

Dull and stained teeth can really age a person and it’s very difficult to undo the damage once it’s been done. One option is to have caps put on your teeth but that’s really going to cost you and it’s a pretty invasive procedure. Teeth whitening is a far easier and cheaper solution but don’t get fooled by the do-it-yourself kits. They’re nowhere near as effective as having it done at a professional clinic and the effects will last much longer. As long as you aren’t smoking or drinking excessive amounts of coffee, you won’t need to have it redone that often at all.

Botox Injections

The facelift is a really easy way to get rid of any lines and wrinkles from your face but the surgery is going to be very expensive and it’ll take months to recover from before you can really see any benefits. You’ll probably have to have more than one over the years as well so it isn’t as great as people make out. Getting botox injections will give you the same effect and even though you’ll have to top them up fairly regularly, it’s a quick and painless procedure.

Laser Liposuction

Liposuction is the easiest way to get rid of any persistent fatty areas that you are struggling with but a lot of people don’t like the idea of the surgical element of it, not to mention it’s expensive. Luckily, the revolution in beauty treatments using laser technology has given us a brilliant alternative. Laser liposuction heats and liquefies the fatty tissues and encourages tighter skin. It sounds a little gruesome but it’s no worse than traditional liposuction and you won’t have a lengthy recovery period either.

Laser Skin Treatments

The improvements in laser beauty treatments started out with skin treatments. They’re a far better alternative to facelifts and if you’re afraid of needles then botox is out of the question. There are all sorts of different laser treatments for your skin that can help with wrinkles and slack skin, blemishes, stretch marks and any other skin impurities. There are variations on skin treatments with different degrees of effectiveness. Some are more invasive and have a longer healing period but they’ll last longer, or you can go for less damaging ones but you’ll have to top up treatments more regularly.

Surgery does offer a quick fix that will last you a long time but for most people, it’s just not viable. It means having to take a long time off work while it heals and that’s if you can even afford it in the first place. These non-surgical alternatives are far better.

Fighting against early ageing signs

When it comes to fighting against the common signs of ageing, the earlier you start to take action, the better. However, that doesn’t mean that it is ever too late to make improvements. Here, we are going to be talking about a few ageing issues which a lot of people worry about, as well as a few ways to fight back against them. Let’s get started.

Sun Damage

As well as causing premature ageing, too much sun exposure can also lead to more serious conditions such as cancer. So, you need to wear sunscreen products which protect against UVA and UVB ultraviolet rays whenever you can. Remember, you can still get sunburned on cloudy days as well. If you notice some skin damage, you can work retinol into your skincare  routine which plays a big role in diminishing the appearance of sunspots.

Fine Lines

A good moisturising routine should be an integral part of your daily life if you are intending to fight back against the appearance of fine lines. You could also try out visiting a cosmetic clinic & aesthetic treatments centre. Another technique that you could try is to change your makeup as the wrong formulas can end up emphasising the appearance of lines. Be careful of powders as these tend to absorb oil and moisture. A cream foundation or tinted moisturiser tend to be the better options.

Dullness

As you get older, the top layer of your skin starts to become dull and you may lose some of your glow. A relatively easy remedy to this issue is to exfoliate on a regular basis with glycolic acid to improve cell turnover and give your skin a boost. If you are looking for quicker results, you could try heading to your dermatologist for a pro-strength glycolic peel.

Puffy eyes

The area of skin around your eyes is already thin, and this is only set to get thinner as you get older. Two factors which can exacerbate the appearance of Dark circles  or puffiness around your eyes are salt and alcohol, so you should try to reduce your intake of both of these substances. A cold compress and some eye cream are two techniques which you could look to incorporate into your skincare routine. The worst thing that you can do to your eyes is to rub them, so this is a habit you should aim to get out of.

Dryness

Dry skin is a natural sign of ageing on its own, but it also plays a role in making a lot of the other ones even worse. Moisturiser should become your best friend, and it is the best line of defence in battling an environment which is always trying to dry out your skin. A hydrating mask from time to time can also make all the difference.

So, hopefully these techniques provide you some joy when battling against early ageing signs. Ultimately, these are things that you can incorporate into your daily life to keep your skin looking its best.
