As the cost of cosmetic surgical procedures grows exponentially every year and news reports frightfully document the risks of plastic surgery tourism, many people are turning to over the counter or online solutions to find the proverbial fountain of youth.

“It seems that everyone these days is searching for a facelift in a bottle, it’s a lot safer than surgery and the results can be just as impressive” explains Mark Martin, executive vice president of marketing and customer care manager for Nova Skin Sciences, one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of high-quality anti-aging skincare and advanced nutraceutical supplements to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Nova Skin Sciences recently announced the launch of two new skincare products, Allumière Antiaging Cream and Niuvella Antiaging Serum into a crowded market. Allumière Antiaging Cream is a lightweight, fast-absorbing cream provides the hydrating benefits of a moisturizer with the power of an anti-aging concentrate.

Anogeissus Leiocarpa Bark Extract and Vitamin C work synergistically to increase the incorporation of Vitamin C in the skin, significantly boosting antioxidant capability and collagen synthesis. Powerful, bioavailable peptides rebuild and restore skin from the inside out to lift, fill, and smooth out wrinkles.

Features comfrey stem cells and a probiotic to speed skin renewal and turnover while tomato-derived carotenoids fight UV damage and lighten skin. Sandalwood and Barley Extract reduce water loss and stimulates lipids found naturally in skin.  Allumière addresses signs of aging caused by UV damage, glycation, gravity, and dryness.  This rich, luxurious cream rewinds the years to reveal smooth, supple and healthy skin.

Niuvella Antiaging Serum an anti-aging face cream featuring auto-adapting technology to provide the ultimate comfort and protection in all climates.  A marine-based neuro-soother addresses one of the root causes of aging and wrinkles — inflammation.  It fights inflammation by soothing irritated skin and reducing skin sensitivity.  Probiotics restores skin’s self-renewal to increase skin thickness, reduce moisture loss, and boost skin immunity.

Niuvella counteracts photoaging with soybean seed extract and olive fruit revealing an increase in skin smoothness, firmness, hydration, and elasticity while decreasing wrinkle depth. Anogeissus Leiocarpa Bark Extract increases the incorporation of Vitamin C in the skin, significantly boosting antioxidant capability and collagen synthesis.

Formulated with snow algae powder to protect skin on a cellular level by fighting oxidative stress, detoxifying, and repairing.  Snow algae, found in semi-permanent to permanent snow or ice in the alpine or polar regions of the world, activates longevity factors to extend the youthfulness of skin.

“The unique combination of natural ingredients is made and tested in a FDA-inspected and cGMP lab and has attracted the interest of women all over the world seeking an affordable, over-the-counter solution to an age-old, or should we say, old-age problem,” says Martin.

For people willing to go under the knife or at least to a dermatologist’s office, cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally-invasive procedures remains a multi-billion-dollar big business and shows no signs of slowing down. A new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that Americans spent $16 billion on cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally-invasive procedures in 2016.

Among the more popular cosmetic surgical procedures last year were: Breast augmentation (290,467 procedures); Liposuction (235,237 procedures); Nose reshaping (223,018 procedures); Tummy tuck (127,633 procedures); and Buttock augmentation (18,489 procedures).

Among the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures were: Wrinkle treatment injections (botulinum toxin type-A, such as Botox®, Dysport®) (7 million procedures); Hyaluronic acid fillers (2 million procedures); Chemical peel (1.3 million procedures); Microdermabrasion (775,014 procedures); and Laser treatments (Intense Pulsed Light) (656,781 procedures).

With recent advancements in science and technology, women seeking younger, firmer skin have more options available than ever before. “From the latest skincare products to popular cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally-invasive procedures, we are seeing a revolution in beauty care and the changing face of plastic surgery now that there are other effective options available,” said Martin.
