Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?

Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?

Doesn't make sense.: At your age, unless you have underlying medical issues you should not have age-related facial changes. If you feel like you have abnormal skin, see a dermatologist. If you smoke, stop- this will age you prematurely. My suggestion is that if you choose to see a cosmetic surgeon, see a busy one with a good reputation who won't be tempted to offer you a procedure you won't need. ...Read more

Which plastic surgery for white skin did micheal jackson went under?What are other effective peal, laser treatment for having a glowing fair skin?Help!

No answer.: You cannot look at a given person and ask what procedure(s) he or she may have had, unless they choose to tell you. Even then, individual characteristics of patients preclude application to your unique situation. Elimination of acne scars is not possible, only improvement. Dermabrasion for localized areas, and peels or laser for larger areas, will yield the best results, if performed by an expert. ...Read more
