1. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
There are various types and techniques of non-surgical fat reduction, and each method generally works to reduce fat down into liquid, which is then passed through your metabolic system. Non-surgical fat removal procedures are entirely safe and entirely painless and require no preparation before the procedure is undertaken. Types of non-surgical fat reduction include, but are in no way limited to, radiofrequency, cryolipolysis and low-level laser therapy.
Non-surgical fat reduction treatments are available to almost everyone who wants to rid themselves of unnecessary stubborn fat, but who are unwilling to put themselves through the risks and recovery rates of surgical liposuction. The treatments are available on the same day and generally the only recommended aftercare techniques are to stay as hydrated as possible, whichever particular method you choose.

One of the most popular and well-known medical anti aging treatment available in this country is the Botox injection. For the last decade or so, Botox has been undertaken by people of all ages, genders, and nationalities and is incredibly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and furrows in the face and neck. Studies show that a significant proportion of Americans who started Botox carried on the treatment every two or three months on average.
3. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a chemical exfoliation process that precisely penetrates your skin beyond the surface level in order to encourage the top few layers of your skin to start the shedding process. As the top layers begin to shred, collagen is stimulated to replace the lost proteins which naturally increases the cellular turnover with a resulting ‘fresher’ and younger looking face.
Although available to most, chemical peels work significantly better for people who have issues such as facial discoloration, hyper-pigmentation, acne scarring and overly-textured skin. If you have booked a chemical peel treatment, it is advisable to avoid any harsh chemical moisturizers and acne-fighting creams up to five days before the treatment to ensure your skin does not overheat after your chemical peel.

4. Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical anti-aging, cosmetic procedure that uses powerful laser beams or intensely pulsed light to remove unwanted hair and discourage regrowth.
Laser hair removal is only a temporary fix and it is recommended to have a session of the treatment approximately every four to six weeks to ensure proper maintenance. Additionally, consult with a medical professional to ensure your skin type is one suited to laser hair removal and also ensure the person carrying out your treatment is suitably qualified and experienced in the technique.
