When the rich and famous notice the tell-tale signs of ageing, many will pick up the telephone and dial their surgeon's number immediately. But the problem with most types of surgery is it is extremely expensive and the outcome is not always good value for money. Thankfully, cosmetic companies are putting in a lot of time and money to produce excellent alternatives to going under the knife.
