botoxSometimes, it feels like insufficient time is the great enemy of the 21st Century. Our lives are so busy, juggling work, relationships, family… trying to squeeze in a bit of time for ourselves seems almost impossible…

However, time does have a habit of passing and we can suddenly look in the mirror and see its evidence on our faces.

A little daily investment will help to lay the foundation for good skin. Where time is tight, the 3 golden rules for daily skincare are:

  1. Keep skin clean – use a good cleanser or facial wash to remove make-up and daily grime, so that your skin is kept clean
  2. Moisturise – day and evening, keep your skin hydrated
  3. Sun protection – even in the winter, the sun’s rays can be damaging. Use a minimum SPF30

Professional Treatments

For the uninitiated, the array of professional skincare treatments can be bewildering. The latest developments in technology and medicine mean that, within realistic limits, it really is possible to reverse the signs of ageing by treating not only the lines and wrinkles that appear with time, but also the inherent condition of the skin itself.

Top anti-ageing treatments tackling lines and wrinkles are botox and dermal fillers. Both are injectable treatments, but they do work in different ways. Botox “freezes” muscle movement, stopping the fine creasing of the skin so that it drapes more smoothly over the face. By comparison, dermal fillers work to plump out the deeper lines and creases that appear with time.

Treatments take around half an hour (this will vary dependent on the area being treated) but results last for months before a top-up is required.
