We all have our gripes with our bodies and we all have that one little thing that we would change if we could, which is why so many people opt to undergo cosmetic surgery every year. But whether this is fulfilled via liposuction, breast enhancement or something else entirely, surgery isn’t an option for everyone. Not only is it costly, but it also comes with a certain amount of risk and downtime, regardless of how experienced your practitioner may be.
With the constant advancements in medical science, there are now many more effective non-surgical treatments than ever before. This means that you might not have to go for something as drastic as surgery to enhance your appearance.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments use products and techniques to improve several areas of the body, with the most popular treatments at present those which are associated with anti-ageing and capable of managing problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and unwanted hair growth!
So before you jump into surgery, have a look and see what non-invasive options are available to you!

Obagi has led innovative and transformative research for the last 30 years and is set to continue for a good few decades more.

The Obagi range of products is industry-leading so you can feel confident that you will get the results you desire.
The Obagi Skin Peel only takes 30 minutes, and a few days later your skin will start to peel – after approximately a week your skin will begin to look rejuvenated and healthy.
Botox (brand name for botulinum toxin A)
Botox has always been surrounded by its fair share of controversy, and this generally originates from the people who haven’t reacted well to its injection or those who choose to place their trust in inexperienced practitioners. Yet, Botox is extremely safe and an effective treatment that can help reduce many common signs of ageing and give you a much more youthful appearance in the process.
Botox works by preventing the release of acetylcholine – a substance that is liberated as the muscles in our face tense and of the main reasons that wrinkles form. Botox is so sought-after as it blocks the nerves from releasing this substance, therefore relaxing your muscles and diminishing the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, our natural tissues deplete, especially in areas of constant movement. The one part of the body that moves the most on a daily basis is the face – which is why signs of ageing commonly appear there first. Fillers can be injected under the skin to fill in these creases and lessen any visible signs of wrinkles or fine lines you may have. Fillers are a multi-purpose treatment and are also effective at plumping up cheeks and providing fuller lips.
Fillers are a great alternative to surgical treatment if you are trying to get more youthful-looking skin but don’t want to go through long and time-consuming surgical procedures.
