No one likes ageing or looking older than their years! And we all know that there are things we can do to slow down the ageing process – both internally and externally. The question a lot of people ask me is “What is better – prevention or treatment?” The answer is always going to be that it is better to prevent a problem than it is to try and fix it after it has happened. This applies both to the concept of disease prevention, as well as to preventing the inevitable ageing changes that affect the face. Simple, non-surgical treatments can prevent, as well as treat, surface lines and wrinkles, volume loss and sagging skin. Various skin treatments reduce abnormal pigment, tighten the skin and stimulate collagen. Treatments are very well tolerated and have no, or minimal, downtime. More importantly, it means your face will age at a slower rate. You will look naturally refreshed, and more beautiful, for longer.
We all have to work within a budget and when times are more difficult we have to make decisions about non essentials. It is important to remember that fashions come and go and those shoes may not look as good with next year’s frock. Our health is priceless and we only get one face. We have to look after them both with a little bit of regular “maintenance”.If you haven’t already done so, download a self-assessment questionnaire here to understand more about how facial changes occur.
