The most popular is definitely permanent makeup for eyeliner, then eyebrows and lips at the end. It’s a completely safe procedure, but make sure that the salon has a business license and that the person who is doing the procedure is certified.

If you want to take it a step further, a face lift is just the thing. It’s a procedure that involves removing excess skin on the patents face and neck, and then tightening underlying tissues. Its effects are permanent and it shows best results in removing wrinkles, especially around the eye area. It takes several hours and the results show after two weeks. Like every surgical procedure, even this one has its own risks, so be sure to be quite certain of this. Also, it can be costly, but as we all know, beauty comes with a price.

Botox is a natural protein that that is used to temporarily relax your facial muscles that cause wrinkles. It is certified in both medical and cosmetic field. The duration of results varies, but they last approximately around 3-6 months. It’s a much cheaper alternative to a face lift, and also it’s a much safer option. Similar to Botox, fillers have found its way to popularity in the last couple of years. It involves injecting Hyaluronic Acid, which is a naturally occurring product, through a tiny needle, into a patient’s skin. They are mostly used for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. For instance, Kylie Jenner popularized the lip filler trend this year, and it looks amazing! The treatment generally last for about 18-24 months and after that the effects start to gradually soften.

So if you are aiming on getting some long-term solutions for your look, these couples of options are a great way to start. Think smart and plan ahead!
