With beauty being more heavily emphasised in our society these days, plastic surgery and make-up trends have evolved drastically over the years.
And while make-up should be used sparingly to enhance our natural features, the make-up that we know of today has quite a different take.
From pasting cheek tapes to wearing fake noses, excessive make-up and plastic surgery have ultimately eroded the true essence of beauty.
Truth is, a heavily made up face over a massively doctored countenance has become a thing of the past and simply cannot hold a candle to natural and effortless beauty.
But with age creeping up on us, such ethereal beauty may seem dauntingly out of reach for many.
For many of us, complexes such as wrinkles, freckles or even an unsubstantial nose-bridge are the very reasons of our ebbing confidence and we thereby, overcompensate by piling on make-up or turning to drastic plastic surgery procedures in hopes of holding on to what seems like a fading beauty.
However, nothing spells disaster than the beauty that deviates from its true nature.
So, if excessive make-up and drastic plastic surgery aren’t the solutions, what can be done to achieve that celestial beauty that we desire?
The answer lies in 3 simple procedures.
With ageing comes an uninvited guest – wrinkles. As we age, our skin experiences a loss like no other.
Not only does our skin get thinner and drier, but it also has less elasticity and becomes more vulnerable to damage.
This combination becomes the hotbed of the much-dreaded wrinkles. Waking up to the wrinkles sprawled out over our faces may not be the best sight to be greeted with first thing in the morning.
Not only do they remind us of how dangerously close we are to ageing, but it also makes us look dull and perpetually tired.
Worst of all, no amount of make-up is able to mask the lines of ageing that are hiding beneath the layers of foundation.
However, that does not mean that we have to live with the stain of ageing on our faces.
Botox is the very solution to smoothening out and leaving absolutely no traces of ageing on our countenance. Also known as Botulinum toxin, Botox works its magic by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles.
With Botox being injected, the muscle can no longer contract, thereby causing the wrinkles to relax and soften, which results in the smooth and even skin surface that is reminiscent of youthhood.
With Botox erasing the appearance of ageing, fillers come in to supplement and add volume to areas that may have fallen short of expectation.
Whether it is an inadequate nose bridge that requires some height, a thin lip line that requires some plumping or a weak chin that requires some shaping, the possibilities with fillers are endless.
Not only that, the beauty of fillers lies in that, the results are natural unlike a major plastic surgery procedure of a chin implant or Rhinoplasty.
Fillers act as an enhancer, enhancing your natural beauty without you losing the essence of your appearance.
Made out of collagen and hyaluronic acid gel, fillers contain naturally-occurring substances in our skin that contribute to volume and hydration, giving us the perk of youth that ageing so denies.
With fillers, be prepared to say goodbye to the daily hassle of exaggerated contours along your nose bridge for the illusion of a higher nose bridge or the unnatural overlining of your lip line for that false appearance of a plumper and alluring lips.
Also, since the result of fillers is not permanent, this means that you have the power to change up your appearance as you desire and that in our opinion is, the cherry on the cake.
Indeed, nothing is more appealing than a smooth and clear complexion when it comes to looking and feeling your very best.
Think of our skin as a blank canvas and our facial features as embellishments to the masterpiece. Without a clear skin would tantamount to a blemished masterpiece.
Truth is, no matter how much make-up you slap on or how many procedures you undergo, the final result will never live up to your expectations without first starting on a clean canvas, aka a clear complexion.
And thankfully, getting one isn’t as challenging as you think it to be.
With PICOCARE being a laser treatment for pigmentation, melasma, scars and reduction of pore size, it is the latest cosmetic treatment that is your one-stop solution to all your skin-related woes.
Not only does PICOCARE laser have the capacity to breathe life into your dull and tired looking skin, but it’s also the answer to reversing the damage done by hormones, sun exposure and environmental pollution.
With PICOCARE laser working on four different wavelengths treatments – 1064nm, 660nm, 595nm and 532nm, this enhances its ability to remove more pigments in lesser time.
And the result – a taut, smooth and a clear complexion that no amount make-up or surgery can achieve.
