Many of us have imperfections in our appearance we would like to improve. Here are some of the most common trouble areas women (and men) would fix if they could and the procedures needed to fix them.

  1. Teeth: Wanting whiter, straighter teeth is a common complaint for many people. Teeth whitening treatments in hand with dental cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more popular as well as more affordable. Whitening, veneers, bonding and crowns can all work to perfect your smile.

  2. Wrinkles: As you age the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines worsen leading to crows feet, frown lines and sagging or hallowed cheeks. All of these issues can be treated with a number of cosmetic derma fillers which help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles offering a younger appearance. They can last from six months to a year depending on the area treated as well as the filler used.

  3. Cellulite: Cellulite is the bane of many people’s existence in all age groups. In fact very few of us are cellulite free. New advances in laser treatments include Cellulaze which has caused quite a stir due to its excellent results. This is an invasive procedure that involves metal tubes inserted into the skin that then emit heat to melt fat, smooth bulges and replump skin for a final smoothing.

  4. Varicose and Spider Veins: Another culprit very few if any of us avoid, feathery veins such as spider veins and more pronounced swollen veins such as varicose veins can be a source of not only embarrassment but sometimes pain. Sclerotherapy for varicose veins is an effective procedure that is used to shrink veins with a series of injections. Often patients see results with just one treatment with minor side effects such as bruising, redness and swelling.

  5. Tummy: The tummy tuck is still one of the most successful and most risky cosmetic procedures. You must undergo surgery in which fat is removed and excess skin that has been stretched by weight gain is removed and tightened. Despite the normal risks associated with surgery the procedure remains popular as the results are remarkable.

From teeth whitening to Sclerotherapy for varicose veins there are many cosmetic procedures that can help address the issues you might have to help you improve your appearance.
