There has been a rise in dramatic cosmetic surgery procedures as people continue their quest for perfection. Forget face lifts and boob jobs – people are now modifying their ears, knees and toes in order to boost their self-esteem and confidence.
Ear rejuvenation, also known as “ear-tox”, is a new cosmetic procedure which uses dermal fillers injected into the earlobe to plump them back up. The procedure is proving popular with women over 40, especially to women who don’t have the confidence to wear their hair up.
Freckles can occur naturally or develop as a result of sun exposure but many people want to remove them or have them lightened for a more even complexion. The new trend has seen women using laser treatments to banish the small pigmentation spots.
While the average Brit has around 35 freckles on their body, some people have a lot more and it seems to be wreaking havoc with their self-confidence.
Unwanted facial hair can ruin your self-esteem. That’s why one of the newest beauty trend is sideburn laser removal and is becoming increasingly popular. Clinics are using laser hair removal which uses light energy to destroy the hair follicle and ensure it doesn’t grow back.
Facial peels used to be all the rage but now women have taken to knee peeling. Many Caucasian women have pink knees, while many women with dark skin have brown or greyish areas on their knees. Clinics have been offering knee peels which slough away and exfoliate the top layer of skin, leaving your skin feeling smooth and radiant. It is said that knee peels are also a great way to reduce mild scarring and blemishes.
Heels can be a squeeze for the bigger-footed women, and flip-flops can be a complete nightmare for those who don’t want to reveal their feet. Foot fillers have become increasingly popular among women in a bid to make heels more comfy, adding an extra cushion to the ball of the foot, along with so-called “Cinderella surgery”, a procedure which alters women’s feet to improve their appearance.
