Please help me.
I'm 59 but looking 69 and feeling 79 as the skin under my eyes has given up the ghost and looks terrible. It's as if my whole face has slid south and I can't do anything about it.
I looked at an advert for non surgical treatments but the reviews said it takes months to see any benefit (if any) and i want it NOW!!!!
Has anyone had any treatment that actually worked, surgical or non surgical. Unfortunately i haven't got pots of money to go for a facelift and my husband would kick off if i even suggested it anyway.
I'd love to hear of anything that could help me out.

Can't help you with advice but will join you in your quest. If I had the money ( I wish!) I would love to have the skin between my eyelid and eyebrows lifted and also have my jowls lifted.

Have you looked at LED masks, they work and they do full face or just eye versions , but quality varies so pays to do your research . Good luck ! DD and I share one- this is me in it!😱

Crikey! Hannibal Lecter!
I‘d love to get my eye bags done but it won’t happen. Creams don’t work IMO.

I did feel the urge for a nice Chianti to go with my liver!!🤣

Hell's bells Nanna58! Was it a painful process to go through? It looks terrifying!

I get the laser ipl treatments from time to time which are skin tightening and not too expensive £40 for certain areas £60 for full face and I do think they work .

Nanna58 😂 the aliens have landed.

Forget about the pain. Does it work ?

Lizbethann55 Fri 28-Jan-22 18:21:51

Soozikini, what's the laser IPL treatment?

I'll settle for a mask from the joke shop grin

I'm looking into something called 'Profhilio'. I don't want botox, trout pout lol 😆. After speaking to my beauty salon where I get my nails done, this was suggested. My disease tends to affect R hand side of face more than the L. It's apparently a deep , deep injection of hyaluronic acid. It's not ' rigid ' like botox. It actually moves about. Sounds crazy 🤪 I know but it's 1st time I've seriously thought of anything like this. I need to research it myself first. Also ' fat removal ' ( not for my body), for saggy chin. It's just needed once. For life. Provided don't put weight on. Now that I really, really do like the sound of. Great topic 👏 👍. Ty A xxx

Can’t we be content in our own skins All the money spent on trying to improve on nature. We are going to get older, rejoice in it The most lovely photo I ve ever seen was of an elderly Greek woman with her whole life etched on her smiling face
Beware the Carol Vordeman syndrome

I wouldn’t have anything like that done anyway andiacc1, but I certainly wouldn’t have it done by an unqualified and unregulated person in a beauty salon.
