My skin has always been a little oily, but now I am noticing the odd wrinkle around my eyes. laughter lines I prefer to call them though! I'm happy in my skin in general however when I get older I wouldn't rule out the odd treatment here and there. I think the secret with any treatment is to improve on the original. The craze for having plastic surgery to look like you have no expression is too extreme.
We have many great role models now that embrace their age such as Helen Mirren, Germain Greer and Meryl Streep. These ladies look after themselves but acknowledge their age and experience in life. That's not to say they have or haven't had any treatments, I guess only they would know. But why not? If you feel you need a cosmetic treatment it should be up to you.
It's important to go to a reputable clinic and allow them to guide you in the treatments available. Being a member of the Care Quality Commission shows they meet national standards.
Wrinkle relaxants, laser treatments and laser skin resurfacing all have their place when carried out correctly to high standards. Other treatments like laser hair removal and tattoo removal can give you a new lease of life.
An example of laser skin resurfacing is below. In 2 to 4 treatments improvements are shown in a variety of areas including skin texture, pores, tones, elasticity, and pigment. I think this lady looks refreshed and rejuvenated, what do you think?
