  2. Microneedling- This involves a device used to roll pins across the skin which tricks the skin into thinking it is damaged and so boosts the production of collagen resulting in wrinkles becoming filled out and the complexion looks smoother.
  3. Derma Fillers- You can find derma fillers that contain hyaluronic acid that hydrates the skin making it appear more plumped and younger
  4. Face Lift- For more extreme cases there is the option for having a facelift, this decision shouldn’t be taken lightly and a lot of time and consideration should be taken before undergoing this surgery.

Some of these options are temporary and you need to keep in mind that if you enjoy the results then you must expect to repeat the procedure every 6 months or so.
