There are an increasing number of ways for people to make sure they stay fresh-faced and looking youthful without opting for surgery, according to cosmetic industry professionals. Treatments to relax a person's facial muscles, dermal fillers, skin peels and Dermaroller treatments are all popular ways of improving appearance and helping to boost people's self-confidence. And according to skin specialist Dr Ross Perry, non-surgical treatments allow people to roll back the years within a very short space of time.Dr Perry said: "Cosmetic treatments have come a long way in recent years. The most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures can be combined for a really effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation with much less 'down time' and none of the risks associated with general anaesthetic and a major surgical procedure." But while non-surgical options such as dermal fillers have increased in popularity, industry figures show more surgical procedures than ever are also being carried out. Data released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons showed that 38,274 operations were completed in 2010, up from 36,482 the previous year.
