We have all heard by now about the recent survey that revealed a staggering three quarters of people are so dissatisfied with their appearance it has stopped them having their photograph taken. I am not shy to say that I am one of those people! But I guess I now work in the right industry to change that and I am becoming my biggest project for 2015.
Despite knowing a fair bit about the industry, it could have been so easy to have fallen into the wrong treatment programme and to have been lead into unnecessary treatments. And this is why it is even more refreshing that Save Face are pioneering to make the industry a safer place (watch out for their current ad campaign).
I have been looking into all of the vast options that I have as a 40 something woman who is losing volume in her cheeks and face. I am paying for the years I spent living in Spain with only a bit of carrot balm for protection (no protection). And so a treatment that I may well be very interested in is a Non-surgical facelift and I will be glued to tonights C4’s Bodyshockers.
I have been having Botox as a preventative treatment for some years and have found that it addresses only 50% of my needs, whilst still looking natural. I heard about this treatment from Silhouette Soft very recently and am seriously thinking about it now and the proof will be in the show it seems.
Tonight sees the television debut at 10pm on Bodyshockers of a patient being treated by Dr Sarah Tonks, a maxillofacial trained surgeon, with an innovative new treatment called SILHOUETTE SOFT®. This treatment has been shown to redefine the face for those looking for a face lift, restore volume and reduced wrinkles. Impressively it does this without the need for surgery, only takes half an hour to perform and produces natural results which allow complete facial mobility. Better still the results improve over time and last up to 18 months.
Our face, our muscles, our fat pads and our skin have a tough job to do and over time we lose the volume in our faces causing the down turn of our faces, with the help of gravity. And so combating the signs of ageing requires sagging skin to be lifted and to restore volume in the cheek area which hollows as the body’s production of collagen diminishes.
This treatment appears to tackle both issues as it lifts and regenerates – this pioneering treatment uses bidirectional absorbable thread cones. The tension of the thread, which is inserted non-surgically immediately under the top layer of the skin, lifts the sagging tissues immediately. Then the tiny absorbable cones on the thread (no larger than a sewing knot) anchor themselves into the facial tissues and stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. This continues over time, increasing the volume of sagging cheeks to restore shapeliness to the face gradually to achieve a natural looking result. Three months after the initial treatment the face looks even better than it did immediately after the procedure and remains so for a year and a half.
With 55 percent of those surveyed admitting they would consider an anti-ageing facial procedure if no one knew they had had it, and if there was no downtime. It appears that the SILHOUETTE SOFT® treatment may provide a way to achieve this in 2015.
I also cannot wait to see more of the award winning and celebrity saving Dr Beautiful | Dr Esho – It really is in his Kiss or the Kiss that he can give you with his lip service. Watch out for him on BodyShockers and follow him @IAMDRBEAUTIFUL

I am looking forward to seeing what these experts can do and then making a plan to get the old me back in 2015!
