Those words ‘unsightly fat’ conjure up jiggly, flabby areas – and, even apparently slim people can suffer from retained fat. Fat removal isn’t always just about dieting carefully and working out regularly, sometimes you need a helping hand.
When how you look is important you know that, unless you’re very, very lucky, it’s going to take work. You need to watch what you eat, take regular exercise, drink plenty of water and watch that waistline like a hawk. The challenge is that sometimes, no matter how much effort you put in, the results fall short of what you want.

If you've thought about dermal fillers to enhance your looks, you could be forgiven for being concerned with all the press coverage of treatments that have gone wrong.

The constant movement of your facial muscles creates lines where once the skin bounced back to its smooth appearance.

Botulinum Toxin – often referred to as Botox – has been around for many years and is popular with celebrities as a way to keep their youthful looks and remove the lines that result from aging. It’s accessible for everyone, but in the wrong hands you can end up with that ‘frozen face’ look instead of simply looking younger, fresher and losing those frown and laughter lines.
If you’re looking for a way to smooth out some of the lines that have appeared on your face, ‘Botox’ may be something you’ve considered. However, it doesn’t always get the best press and we’ve all seen celebrities who have overdone it, or had poor treatments that make their faces look frozen, so it may seem something of a risk. If you're thinking about it - you want to be sure you're making the right decision.
