Beauty Breakthroughs You Simply Must Know About!

Turn Back Time

Cosmetic surgery has traditionally involved pain, long recovery times and unpredictable results in the quest to ‘keep young and beautiful’. However, as medical science advances apace many new and more appealing options are appearing.  Here are just a few to consider.

Kybella for chin fat removal

If your chin is beginning to lose its definition, help will soon be at hand. Kybella is a newly-approved injectable drug that can be used by dermatologists to remove excess fat from beneath the chin.

Kybella is a form of deoxycholic acid that’s actually found naturally in the body. Instead of undergoing the usual cosmetic procedure which entails cutting out or removing excess chin fat by suction, your clinician can achieve the same results in as little as five minutes through a number of injections. Kybella is injected beneath the chin where it gets to work breaking down fat cells which are simply reabsorbed back into the body.

Other than a small amount of bruising and temporary numbness, side effects are minimal and you can expect to fully recover within a few days. The improvements in your chin definition are immediate.

Body-sculpting with Vaser LipoSelection

Vaser offers a revolutionary new body-sculpting cosmetic procedure that targets only the fat cells you want removed. The system uses ultrasonic assistance combined with ‘advanced fat removal surgery technology’. The process gently dissolves deposits of fat in areas including the neck, thighs, arms and abdomen. It takes between one and three hours under local anaesthetic and boasts a much faster recovery time than other types of fat removal surgery.

The technique is powerful enough to get rid of large areas of fat yet gentle enough to be used on more delicate areas such as your neck and arms. You can expect dramatic results following just one procedure, leaving you with clearer muscle definition and beautifully sculpted curves again.

Under-eye bags

Under-eye bags (or tear troughs) appear when you’re tired or run down and can become an unwelcome permanent fixture. Until recently it was thought that only surgery could remove eye bags, but now the problem can be corrected through the application of hyaluronic acid fillers. The procedure is quick and relatively painless and the results are instantaneous. Advanced dermal fillers can now be injected using ultra-fine needles. Multiple injections are required to slowly build up the deposits of fillers which are then massaged carefully to remove the eye bags. The procedure takes just 10 minutes and the effects last up to 18 months.

PDO Beauty Lift Threads

If you don’t fancy a traditional face-lift procedure, there’s another non-surgical option available. PDO Beauty Lift Threads lift and tighten your skin through the stimulation of new collagen production; pores appear smaller, wrinkles disappear and your skin appears more toned. The treatment can be used to correct facial wrinkles, sagging eyebrows and eyelids, double chin and furrowing of the neck and cleavage.

Lifting threads are not a new idea, but PDO is different in that it doesn’t use uncomfortable tapers or hooks to raise skin tissue. The lifting effect is due to the threads’ constituent substance polydioxanone (PDO). PDO stimulates the production of elastin and collagen within the skin, encouraging lift and improving skin quality in the treated areas. The technology used is based on the use of the patient’s skin’s natural tension lines and produces a similar effect to a traditional surgical lift.

Once within the skin, the PDO threads break down gradually and are fully absorbed into the skin in approximately 240 days and the effects can last for up to three years. The procedure is virtually painless and takes about an hour. No scars are left and there’s no lengthy painful healing process to go through. Any minor bruising or redness disappears within a week or so.

In conclusion

Any anti-aging treatment that does not require invasive surgical procedures is a welcome development in the beauty industry. These are just a few of the wonderful new options available to women who want to stay looking great as they get older.
