Non- Invasive Beauty Procedures I'd Love to Try

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

When it comes to cosmetic surgery and altering appearances, people tend to be either very for it for very against it. Personally I'm all for it; I'm not denying that it can go way too far, but if you dont like something about yourself that can be changed and you have the money to do so- I say why the hell not? I'm not sure I'd go under the knife myself (although don't hold me to that if I win the lottery- ha) there are loads of non-surgical procedures I'd love to have done. Rather than change the way you look and completely alter your appearance, I see these as more 'fine tuning' procedures- making the most of whatcha' got kinda thing.

I'd love to have the most intense facial ever,  get every bit of gunk out of my skin and basically start with a whole fresh face. Does anyone else think like this, or am I completely weird? In simple terms, microdermabrasion is like the best exfoliating job ever. The procedure is done at a salon (try this at home and you'll probably end up with no face) with a hand held machine which buffs away the top layer of skin while creating a vacuum against the face. It's supposedly very gentle despite sounding like an eighteenth century torture device.

If I'm not cutting myself shaving, I'm burning myself with hair removal cream or doing my best banshee impression waxing my legs. Painful and expensive hair removal comes with the territory of being female- I'm not necessarily complaining because the thought of 'au natural' is pretty terrifying but it's not exactly fun is it? If you think about it, permanent laser hair removal is kind of an investment- you can be safe in the knowledge that you wont be sporting a full-on moustache when you're in your seventies and crazy post-menapausal hormones kick in. Take that, nature.

Teeth Whitening
Ever since I was old enough to brush my own teeth my mum used to bang on about how important it was to look after them. At twenty five years old I can proudly say I've never had a filling or even a toothache, and although I'm grateful to have never had any problems with them (other than getting lipstick on them every now and again- but you know, it happens) I can't help to watch trash tv shows like The Only Way is Essex and dream of a gleaming white set of nashers. I've actually tried saving up for teeth whitening a few times in the past, but have always gave in and gone on a shopping spree instead (it's ok, this blue-toned red lipstick makes my teeth look whiter anyway right?) It's definitely still on my list of things to do though.

I know you hear some horror stories about permanent makeup- wonky lipliner tattoos and eyebrows that look like they've been drawn in with a big black marker. But done well (at a respectable, experienced salon) eyebrow tattooing can look really good- and who wouldn't want perfectly shaped eyebrows every day? Modern eyebrow tattoos use a technique called hair stroke technique which looks just like actual brows rather than a big old thick line; I'd have mine filled in ever so slightly with the arch accentuated, 

If you could have any procedure done (surgical or non- surgical) what would it be?

  1. Hi Stacey, I used to do microdermabrasion facials in my salon, but they were a very mild form that involved putting liquid on the face, and no machine was used. These are a great way of having one done without getting the scars after. You leave the salon looking normal. Like you I would quite like to have full on microdermabrasion. I've also always been interested in having semi- permanent make-up! Carly. Carly's Beauty World

    1. Oh wow I'd love to try the milder version too, sounds great that you don't leave the salon with a big red tomato face haha! I'd definitely have my eyebrows tattooed, I think I'd probably go for teeth whitening first though if I ever manage to save up (instead of giving up and going shopping instead) lol x x

  5. I used to use Crest Whitestrips for teeth whitening. I got a lot of compliments on how crazy white my teeth were. It's also pretty affordable. If I were to win the lottery, I'd get a tummy tuck and laser stretch mark removal. Being my size and having two kids with my bad genes left me with terrible stretch marks all over and excess skin. Sounds gross, right? Lol! No pain, no gain, haha. :)

  7. I did a post about teeth whitening, it has it pros and cons - but mainly pros! If it's of any interest to you: http://www.raspberphobia.com/2013/08/my-experience-with-teeth-whitening.html. I feel so much more confident smiling now but it definitely makes your teeth super sensitive and Sensodyne did nothing to help that...

  8. I would never get my eyebrows done permanently because I find that eyebrow styles sometimes change just like everything else. What if the style is thinner brows one year and there is nothing you can do about it? Or what if you suddenly decide one morning you want giant cholo brows (I'm assuming you banged your head very hard at some point before this decision though)? That's just my opinion though.

    I also have a beauty blog if you would like to check it out, it is very new. http://mattekat.blogspot.ca/

  9. Instead of whiten your teeth at an expensive clinic you should try whiten your teeth at home. There are some awesome whitening products out there that are also legal in UK. My tip is try out Stella White strips, great result and they doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. :)
