Can it be true that two-thirds of millennials want to have non-surgical procedures? Tweakments guide founder Alice Hart-Davis wishes they wouldn’t.
Should young woman be doing Tweakments? I find this a really difficult topic to discuss because personally I wish they wouldn’t, but that makes me sound like a real grumpy old reactionary — and hypocritical as well because I’ve been doing these things for as long as I’ve been able to get hold of them and I’m sure if they had been around when I was 25, I would have been very curious to try them, too.

Now that tweakments clinics are reopening after lockdown, what will an appointment for Botox or filler be like? Alice Hart-Davis has the lowdown.
Finally, after 12 long weeks, clinics offering cosmetic procedures are starting to reopen. A few of them opened a week or so ago; most are waiting for the start of July, and making their preparations.
As some of you have been asking me whether this is ok and legal, I thought I’d put up this post to say yes, absolutely it seems to be ok – for medical practitioners who are following the correct protocols.

Skincare can’t really help marionette lines, says Alice Hart-Davis. Tweakments will do the job – and these are the ones that work for her.
I’m getting a lot of questions about marionette lines at the moment — the lines that drop from the outer corners of our mouths straight down towards our chin. Maybe that’s because we’re all more gloomy than usual during lockdown, and are catching sight of this in the mirror?

It’s not hard to soften the crow’s feet lines around the eyes, says Alice Hart-Davis. Start with good quality skincare and consider moving on to tweakments
You might call them smile lines, you might call them ‘crow’s feet’, but more to the point, what can you do about them? The skin around the eyes is thin and wrinkles easily, so few of us are going to escape the fine lines that settle in to this area. Good skincare, as ever, is the place to start in order to support and protect your skin – particularly since all the tweakments clinics are shut for the time being.

What does prejuvenation mean? It’s a term cosmetic practitioners use to talk about preventative treatments which they use to delay the signs of ageing.
Today I’m talking about prejuvenation, it’s the idea that if you start doing tweakments early, like in your twenties, and you have a little bit of wrinkle-relaxing toxin to stop the wrinkles setting in, then they won’t really develop so you won’t age as fast as you would normally.
It sounds logical and it has been proven in clinical studies too – so yes, it works, but here’s the thing – I’m not mad keen on it. Why? Just because if you start thinking you must never have a single wrinkle and it’s a really terrible thing, then that kind of sets up all these phobias, around the whole process of showing any signs of ageing.

Acne is a real heart-sink whether you are in your teens or an adult. What are the best ways of treating it – and preferably, fixing the problem?
Acne. It’s one of the things we most associate with our teenage years, but for many people it isn’t something that stops after puberty. It is particularly tough if you go on suffering with it as an adult… and then for mid-life women, it seems really unfair when your hormones start rioting in the run-up to menopause and breakouts start making a comeback.

Microneedling sounds scary, but what does it actually involve? Alice tries the SkinPen Precision treatment.
Clinical microneedling is an increasingly popular treatment for all round improvement of the skin. Needling stimulates the wound-healing response in the skin, which results in the growth of new collagen which makes skin firmer, and improves skin hydration and reduces pigmentation and sun damage. It’s good for the face, the hands, and also for the neck and décolletage area.

Practitioners see it all the time, you only want a little change. Well, this little change can turn into a big one, here’s why….
We’ve all tried it. We’ve all looked in the mirror, put our fingers on our cheekbones and pulled the skin up and back a bit…. It seems like such a tiny change which would make all the difference in our faces. Surely, all we need to do is find a practitioner who can do it for us. There must be some simple tweakments…

Large pores. An issue that so many of us struggle with. Can you treat them? What works, tweakments or skincare?
We can all get a bit obsessed about our pores — that they’re too large or too obvious. You can’t get rid of your pores — your skin needs them! — but there is plenty you can do to keep them clean and make them look less obvious; and guess what, tweakments can be really helpful here. Although I would add that you really shouldn’t stress about your pores, they are never as obvious to everyone else as they seem to you.
You can get a few thoughts from the video here, or look over my full, free, downloadable fact sheet with the full range of my suggestions for treating pores.

What tweakments have doctors told Alice Hart-Davis she should do to improve her face?
In this job, one of the occupational hazards is that I am always being told by practitioners what I could do to my face, to improve it (thanks guys!)
What do they suggest? Well, here goes.
