Non-surgical procedures to help you sparkle for the festive season

It's not just women in India who are turning to quick-fix cosmetic treatments to improve their looks. An increasing number of men have come to rely on non-invasive cosmetic work to refresh their appearance.In Bhopal, the capital of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, dermatologists say demand is highest for treatments such as microdermabrasion and skin peels. The procedures can be used to treat ageing skin, acne problems and reduce the effect of sun damage to the skin. Combined, skin peels and microdermabrasion can lead to even better results. Speaking to the Times of India, dermatologist Dr Meenakshi Tandon said: "Light cosmetic procedure like microdermabrasion gets rid of facial lines and wrinkles while chemical peels help tighten and brighten skin." And it's the speed of treatments and the absence of a long recovery period that's attracting people. "Quick fix treatment for a youthful appearance is in demand. Some procedures can be performed over lunch time too," added skin specialist Dr Sumit Soni. Businessman Anshul Garg told the newspaper that he and his wife were looking for a confidence boost from the skin treatment. "We wanted to get rid of the signs of aging," he said. "At first I was hesitant but light cosmetic procedure has really worked for me."
