Our expert says:
Hi “Low Self Esteem”, thank you for the question.
Congratulations on the reduction with smoking, as this is most probably your first step, in not only rejuvenating your skin but yourself emotionally as well. I am glad you would like to do something more about you self confidence and self esteem.
There have been a number of studies that have shown the psychological and emotional benefits by improving ones outer appearance. However, this is a difficult question to answer over the internet as your best option would be to consult with an aesthetic practitioner or a cosmetic dermatologist or a plastic surgeon who can examine the areas of concern and advise you on the appropriate treatment regimes. All of the complaints you have mentioned are best treated, as a general rule, with a good topical regime including glycolic acid peels, Botox, & skin rejuvenation. If you would like more information on the different treatment regimes both the anti-ageing section on health24.com and my personal webpage (www.aestheticfacialenhancement.co.za) will provide you with a more in depth view. From there you can decide on the appropriate path you would like to follow.
I still think your best option is to make a consultation as this will highlight your treatment options and the cost involved.
