    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.

    Regards

    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 either or both Surgical and Non-Surgical solutions. Non-surgical treatments vary considerably- fillers(for those thin lips, exhausted looking under eyes which have lost their volume), lasers (for pigment, fine lines, uneven and dull looking skin, facial veins), wrinkle injections(for angry looking lines, forehead lines), skincare treatments to assist with boosting the skin dullness, aged look(PRP, boosters, needling) and treatments involving good medical quality treatments for the skin- that's just some of them.

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

    And then some patients want both- 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 is fresh and more refreshed.

    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.

    Mark
