Crowded shopping centres, the race for gifts, office parties, gatherings, and invitations to manage… the frenzy of the holiday season is upon us! But in all the hustle and bustle, it’s important not to forget yourself. It’s the perfect time to enjoy some last-minute treatments before your social engagements take over!
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive anti-aging procedure that deeply exfoliates the skin to create a youthful glow. The main areas treated are the face, neck, cleavage and hands.
The technique consists of superficially polishing the skin by spraying jets of micro-crystals onto the face to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and impurities from the surface of the epidermis. The treatment works on the horny layer of the epidermis to stimulate the production of collagen and new skin cells and improve blood flow. It’s used to clean and regenerate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and brown spots, shrink pores, eliminate blackheads and tone the skin.
Despite the abrasion process, skin looks normal soon after the session and any redness will disappear thanks to the application of a soothing mask and balm.
WRINKLES AND FINE LINES
Cosmetic Botox neutralizes and relaxes the skin’s muscles. It is used to treat expression lines, especially those on the top portion of the face (forehead, glabella and crow’s feet). Filling agents (Juvederm, Volbella, Voluma) help add volume and firmness to facial features and fill fine lines. They are used to compensate for loss of volume due to aging, mainly in the lower part of the face (cheeks, mouth, chin, jaw). The treatments leave no visible trace, especially when they are administered by experienced doctors. After the treatment, water compresses are applied. No one has to know!
LIPS AND FILLERS
To give more volume to your lips, opt for a filler such as Juvederm Ultra Plus or Juvederm Volbella, depending on the desired result and the doctor’s recommendation. For lip augmentation, Juvederm Ultra Plus is ideal. Allow three or four days for swelling to reduce. Bruising is possible after the treatment, but varies from one individual to the next.
DONT’T ENTRUST YOUR BODY TO JUST ANYONE…
The golden rule for all medical aesthetic treatments also applies here: inquire about the technology behind the technique, the quality of the device used in the procedure, and the reputation of the clinic before choosing.
