If you're tired of having dark circles and puffy bags under your eyes, treatments such as using collagen eye creams can focus on rehydrating the delicate skin and reducing the fine lines, puffiness and dark circles that age your face. Collagen is a type of protein and it works hand-in-hand with elastin to provide firmness to the body's tissues. The treatment would involve massaging the area and applying various products including the collagen cream.
Prices can start from around £40 for 25 minutes.

CACI facial toning is a non surgical face lift. It is an electronic beauty treatment that uses a CACI (Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument) machine. This process involves a general cleansing followed by storking the skin with a prong that emits a safe micro-current, which lifts and firms sagging muscles in the face. Afterwards various moisturisers will be applied to the skin. It is a painless and effective procedure.
You will need a course of around 10 treatments and this can cost from £300 upwards.

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment amongst celebrities these days. It is a type of protein that, when injected under the skin, smoothes out wrinkles. It can have very successful results but also there have been many unpleasant side effects reported such as facial paralysis, headaches, muscle weakness and allergic reaction. The injections only last for a few months so you would need to have several injections a year to maintain the wrinkle-free appearance.
Botox can cost around £400 for three 'areas' of your face.

AN oxygen facial is a high-pressure blast of oxygen that feeds serums containing vitamins, minerals and collagen to your skin. Your face will look smoother, plumper and younger. The idea behind it is to replace the levels of oxygen in your skin which are lost through age, smoking and exposure to air pollution. It is said that the oxygen levels reaching your facial skin through the blood's circulation can be depleted by 70% by the time you are 30. And the less oxgyen in your skin, the more visible fine lines and wrinkles you will have.
Oxygen facials can start from around £45 a session.

Decléor makes a range of products designed to cleanse and nourish the skin and many salons offer facial treatments using the Decléor range.

A relaxing and rejuvenating facial treatment is a hot stone facial massage. This is based on a Japanese technique that places heated stones on different areas of the face such as the forehead, cheeks and chin. The heat stimulates the nervous system to increase blood and lymph circulation and this in turn restores damaged cells. It is a very soothing treatment that relaxes the muscles and removes years from your face.
Stone facials can cost from £40 for an hour.
