Making the most of your twenties-procedures for preventionPosted on: 7th June 2015
Depending on your age
group, what you’re looking for in a non-surgical cosmetic procedure is likely
to be different. From preventative measures to procedures that will repair
damage already done, the number of procedures available are vast, and it can be
difficult to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put
together a series of blog posts that will look at the best treatments for you,
whatever your age group.
Hitting your twenties
can be a shock to the system. You probably don’t spring back quite so quickly
from late nights and long weekends, and you might even start to notice a fine
line or two. Your twenties are a decade to be celebrated. Your worrisome teens
are a thing of the past, your career is well on its way.
Your twenties are a time
for paying attention to yourself, for appreciating your body and your skin
while it’s at its peak and really making the most of your appearance. At this
stage in your life, it’s all about looking after what you have rather than undergoing
drastic self-altering procedures.
You may suffer from
problem skin, or even acne. Acne scars or stretch marks which happened in
your teens can be helped, now you have access to non-surgical cosmetic
procedures and treatments.
You are now of an age
where make-up, late nights, holidays in the sun, smoking and alcohol may be an
important part of your life style, and your skin will need looking after now to
prevent damage later.
If you haven’t already
started paying careful attention to your skincare regime, then your early
twenties are the time to do it. Take the time to get to know your skin; is it
dry, oily or a combination of both? The skincare products that you use should
be suited to your skin type, and should definitely include eye cream, a serum
packed with anti-oxidants, and a high SPF of at least 30 to combat sun damage. Use quality
products regularly to see real results, and remember, along with living a
moderately healthy lifestyle, protecting your skin from the sun is the single
most important thing you can do to prevent premature ageing.
Fully qualified accredited
practitioners can assess your skin and advice on appropriate skin care for your
skin type and life style. We all make the mistake of spending a fortune on skin
care, which provides, ‘hope in a jar’ but doesn’t deliver the results we are
looking for. Without expert advice many do more harm than good, simply
because the products we choose are wrong for our skin type.

post on wrinkle treatments for more information.
Crows feet, along with
frown and worry lines, all tend to be the first major signs of ageing that
appear on the face. All of these lines can be successfully treated using
botulinum toxin injections, which work by blocking the signals between nerves
and muscles, preventing them from furrowing and causing permanent wrinkles.
Although botulinum toxin
injections work effectively to relax wrinkles that have already appeared, they
work particularly well as a preventative measure, and can be appropriate if you
are someone with a frowning habit or early wrinkles. Although the ‘frozen face’
has become fashionable for some, it is not advisable to have treatment too
often at an early age, those expressions of emotion and communication are
important to express your personality and feelings and whilst your skin is
still young, you can afford some movement, whilst still preventing the wrinkles

the use of a device which pricks the skin with a series of small, ultra-fine
needles in order to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin,
the proteins that make skin firm and elastic.
It can be very helpful
to correct early sun damage, even in young skins, also to reduce the size of
large pores often suffered by those with oily skins and is a very effective
treatment to improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
There are varying
degrees of chemical peels, and each are suited to quite different requirements.
Peels can be helpful for a range of skin conditions, from dull tired skin, to
problem skin, oily or dry, sun damaged or even acne skins. Chemical peels
in your twenties, can help address a range of skin problems or simply provide a
boost prior to a special event or to help the skin recover from stress or
This is by no means exhaustive list but the above advice will definitely benefit your skin in the long run.
