Looking young or younger is a challenging task I’ve been constantly trying to achieve. Although many peers may think that I’m still in my 30s (I’m actually 43 this year in 2010), to upkeep my youthful look never comes easy and cheap. Apart from my meticulous night regimen (about an hour nightly), non-invasive procedures such as IPL and microdermabrasion actually help to maintain my youthfulness in a way. Though they are mostly used to improve skin texture, they do help to increase collagen production in a superficial way. I’ve done both treatments more than 9 months ago (early 2010).
As age is catching up on me as quickly as I write this post (hahaha!!), I’ve began to notice my face is actually aging tremendously this year. It is fairly common for women above 40s. Hiaz!
Although I wanted so much to turn back the clock, plastic surgery is definitely not an option for me. Cosmetic surgery may go wrong and I’m extremely fear of that. What’s done cannot be undone! And it’s permanent! I will not go under the knife unless there is no better solution than surgery, for example my eyebag removal surgery a year ago. Till now, I’m still not pleased with the results. Too much fats have been removed by Dr Woffles Wu that cause small indentation on both lower eyelids.
All I want now is to look slightly younger and I believe non-invasive procedures will be a better option for me.
Thankfully, due to the latest technology, shaving 10 years off of my age can be done without the help of a plastic surgeon. The areas that may require non-invasive treatments are :
