Everyone wants to retain his or her youth, and it’s become easier than ever with the latest creams, serums, and surgeries available at your command. However, there’s no magic bullet that works for everyone, so a lot of trial and error can be necessary.
There are a few approaches that are tried and tested, though. They might not be able to make everyone look 20 years old again, but they can provide great boosts to your self-confidence and shave a few years off your life. Which of the thousands of youth products actually work?
First, keep in mind that the most effective often require the most work, downtime, money, or all three. For example, Botox (when used well and with discretion) can work wonders for people who suffer from particularly deep worry lines or sagging skin.
However, the treatment can be costly at around $10 per unit (most people need around 30 to 40 units for one area) and comes with risks such as migration. You could end up paralyzing the wrong body part if you don’t follow directions.
Going under the knife
Surgeries are perhaps the most effective fix, but they come with the usual risks of going under the knife as well as recovery time. More and more women are opting for “genital lifts” including labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction, both of which are purely cosmetic.
Gone are the days when women were only concerned about looking good in public with their clothes on. As more attention is being paid to the nitty-gritty, some women are upping their game.
Of course, women aren’t the only gender to be concerned with their private parts. More adult men are getting circumcisions than ever before, choosing to grin and bear it in order to achieve the look they want down under.
A focus on what’s up north
These kinds of intimate procedures are growing in popularity, but perhaps the most procedure with the most impact that anyone can choose is cosmetic dentistry. Even if you have healthy, fairly white, and straight teeth (which is rare), they can be made better.
Porcelain veneers are extremely popular, because they give you the A-lister smile you’ve dreamt of overnight. It should, considering the cost is about $1,000 per tooth.
From laser skin therapy to shrink pores to laser hair removal to get rid of those dark hairs that grow more rampantly with age, there’s a solution for pretty much anything that worries you. However, you should keep everything in moderation and remember to keep an eye on your finances. It’s easy to get carried away.
