    Hello and thanks for your question.

    Non surgical cosmetic options included Bo-Tox and dermal filler injections for wrinkles.  There is also other options such as rejuvebation lasers and chemical peels for further facial rejuvenation.  There is also some cool sculpturing which is a form of cold lipoysis (fat break down) which is a substitute for liposuction.

    The most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures are anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections help to soften dynamic wrinkles in the upper face like frown lines between the eye brows, forehead lines and crows feet around the eyes. Dermal fillers are injected to restore volume to the mid and lower face areas such as the tear troughs, temples, cheeks, chin and jaw line, as well as for lip enhancement and non-surgical rhinoplasty.

    Skin rejuvenation with the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or BroadBand Light (BBL) and fractional lasers are also very popular to improve superficial blemishes caused by ageing and sun damage like brown spots, capillaries and redness, fine lines, pores, poor skin tone, skin laxity and minor scarring. Medical grade skincare for home use and light chemical peels in the clinic also help to enhance a more youthful and even complexion.

    I am a Plastic Surgeon, so I see people who require both Surgical and Non-Surgical solutions. Non-surgical treatments vary considerably: there are fillers which can be injected into thin lips to provide volume, under the eyes to alleviate dark circles and help improve that exhausted look or into cheeks to provide a fresher, more youthful appearance; laser to treat pigment, facial veins, general redness, fine lines and uneven and dull-looking skin; wrinkle injections to treat crows feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines; skincare treatments such as PRP, skin boosters and needling to assist with improving skin dullness and counteract the effects of aging. And that's just the beginning! 

    Some of these treatments can be combined as you may often require more than one modality of treatment to address your concerns appropriately. A highly skilled and specialised practitioner will be able to assess what treatments are best suited for your concerns.

    Some patients need both surgical and non-surgical treatments to optimise their results - for example, the facelift patient whose surgery removes that saggy, tired look but who also needs skincare treatments or laser to improve the actual quality of the skin so that it has a fresher appearance. 

    Non-surgical treatments typically need to be repeated. 

    Some things to be aware of:

    If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Buyer beware of cheap deals!

    I hope this has helped.
