Women and Beauty Care

Many women follow a beauty maintenance routine that involves the application of make-up on a daily basis, in addition to regular beauty appointments to care for their hair, nails, and skin. Some women even take their beauty routine to the next level by undergoing medical treatments with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to further improve their appearance. Here are some of the most common beauty treatments for women.

Daily Maintenance

A woman's daily beauty routine often includes regular hygienic activities such as showering and brushing the teeth. In addition, many women blow-dry, curl, or straighten their hair, apply make-up, and wear stylish clothes in order to help them look their best.

Monthly Maintenance

Many women also schedule beauty appointments for professional care of their hair, face, and bodies. This can include monthly hair appointments in which the hair is colored, highlighted, and/or cut. It can also include manicure and pedicure appointments twice a month so toenails and fingernails can be freshly groomed and painted. Some women also schedule facials or body treatments once or twice a month to keep the skin exfoliated and looking its best.

Permanent Treatments

The most high maintenance women may opt to undergo more permanent cosmetic treatments to maintain their appearance. This can include non-surgical treatments such as the application of permanent make-up. Permanent make-up refers to make-up, such as lipstick or eyeliner, that is tattooed on the patient. Other non-invasive treatments include Botox or dermal filler injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and laser skin resurfacing to create a smoother complexion.

Some patients choose to undergo plastic surgery procedures for a more dramatic long-term change. The most popular plastic surgery procedures for women include breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, and eyelid surgery. These procedures can significantly improve a woman's appearance and confidence level.
