Tips-For-A-Dream-Body

Looking young and beautiful has never been easier, thanks to the advancements in modern medicine and technology. We are certainly far better off than our ancestors when it comes to maintaining a youthful appearance. If you are eager to keep the telltale signs of aging (wrinkles, loose skin, unsightly body hair, etc.) at bay, but don’t want to undergo surgery, there are many cosmetic treatments available.

There really is something for everyone; given their effectiveness, these procedures have become very popular in the last few years. As well, doctors will continue to research and develop new techniques geared towards halting (and hopefully someday) reversing the effects of aging.  Listed below is a quick overview of the common cosmetic procedures including information about what each consists of and what condition it is designed to treat respectively.

Non-surgical treatments worth checking out

  • Hand rejuvenation; veins, blemishes and age spots are all indicators of aged hands. If you want to banish them once and for all and get that smooth, silky look, you may want to consider getting rejuvenation treatment. The treatment can be performed by injecting fillers (to increase the plumpness of the skin), using laser treatment to increase collagen production at the micro-level, as well as equipping patients with medical grade skin care products.
  • Laser hair removal; you will never need to shave, pluck or wax again. Laser treatments are designed to be permanent solutions, as they target the underlying follicles rather than merely removing the strand. Attacking the source is the only way to prevent hair from growing back; with the high-end Light Sheer Duet even the largest of hair removal jobs can be completed with 20-30 minutes. The procedure is painless and can work wonders, and is typically spread out among multiple sessions.
  • Eye enhancement; no longer will you have to put up with those hideous bags or dark circles. It is important to note that many people suffer from poor genetics, which is why you can still have bags even if you eat healthy and get adequate sleep. To eliminate lines and crow’s feet, Botox is often injected at strategic locations around the eyelids. As well, ProFactional laser treatments to get rid of finer lines and wrinkles. You can also get thicker eyelashes by using a product such as Latisse.
  • Skin care; don’t fall into the trap of buying expensive over the counter lotions or ordering items being advertised on television as “miracle cures.” Most of the time, these products do not deliver on their promises. On the other hand, you can get the skin you’ve always dreamed of by paying a visit to us at the McLean Clinic. Vitamins and minerals can definitely create that youthful look, so be sure to speak with us about the available options.
