(Books 1 & 2)
Return to the ‘you’ you knew …
In the 21st century, cosmetic treatments are undergoing a surge of popularity throughout the world.
There are many reasons why people seek cosmetic treatments. Skin blemishes such as acne, eczema, spider veins and rosacea can cause people to feel uncomfortable in social situations. Excess hair on the face or body can be embarrassing, too. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and may sustain sun damage, leading to wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging.
We all want to look our best, and these days there are many safe, quick rejuvenating and skin tightening treatments available.
Dieting alone may not remove fat deposits from certain areas of the body, such as the hips, belly or upper arms. This is where techniques such as liposuction or non-invasive fat removal may be useful.
Numerous appearance-enhancement techniques are now being offered. The range of choices might surprise you – for instance, many people might think that loss of eyebrow hair cannot be redressed; however there is even a way of making eyebrows appear thick again, and shaping them to flatter your face. Another procedure, cosmetic tattooing, is a way of applying semi-permanent makeup, so that you don’t have to apply eyeliner or mascara every day. There are even non-surgical treatments for patchy baldness.
Surgical or non-invasive
Many people choose from the wide range of cosmetic treatments that can only be performed in a hospital. However, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) the trend towards non-surgical procedures has increased dramatically in recent years. These clinic-based treatments include:
- Facial and body skin peels
- Laser hair removal
- Light based facial treatments
- Botox, Dysport and other muscle relaxants
- Dermal fillers
- Mesotherapy /lipodissolve/ fat freezing
Some of these procedures must be performed by medical professionals while others can be carried out by trained estheticians. Some non-invasive procedures are even available at day spas and beauty salons. People are seeking safe, inexpensive, accessible, non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic enhancements with no negative side effects and which provide noticeable improvements.
Compare Cosmetic Treatments.
It is sometimes difficult to find information about cosmetic treatments. Many people use cosmetic enhancements, but most of them prefer to keep that fact secret, and avoid talking about it.
When or if you decide you are ready to improve your appearance with cosmetic treatments, where do you start to look? There is an enormous and bewildering array of possibilities offered by an ever-burgeoning number of clinics. Which technique is best for your particular needs?
That is the question answered by the ‘Beauty” series of books. They provide you with the information needed to compare cosmetic treatments so that you can make an educated choice.
In describing these treatments, the author, Elizabeth M Reed, endeavors to be objective and unbiased. She does not recommend any particular cosmetic treatments and it is up to the consumer to consult their medical practitioner on associated topics such as psychological issues, side-effects, suitability, contraindications, possible discomfort, cost and pre- and post-treatment care.
