The lockdown has taught as many things. From tons of self care, spending time with the family to investing in what really matters and holds fort for longer periods of time – cue our cosmetic treatments.
If you too are wondering how often you’ll be able to go for appointments or how long it would be before your next one, the likelihood that you want to invest in a longer-lasting treatment is high. Longer lasting cosmetic treatments may seem expensive in the short term but have a bigger impact over a longer period of time – and hence turn out to be more cost effective too.
Want to keep appointments at the minimum? These treatments are also great as far as social distancing goes. No need for frequent top ups or checks with the doctor; you can continue to have gorgeous skin for a longer time to come.
Have you heard the newest P-word in town? Youth Preserve is a skin remodelling treatment using Profhilo, one of the purest forms of Hyaluronic Acid that is almost chemical-free. Designed for individuals with ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity, this non-invasive, swift and non-permanent filler targets skincare rather than mere cosmetology adjustments.
After a session of Youth Preserve, Profhilo is placed under the skin stays for around 28 days. During this time, the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA. The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement, AKA complexion boosting and significant tightening and lifting effect on the tissue!
Although this procedure recommends a top-up appointment after one month, if you invest the time to repeat the process twice a year, you will reap an enduring glow. One can expect the results from Profhilo to last for up to six months, but everyone is different so results may differ between individuals.
A treatment meant for not only those who already have wrinkles or sagging skin, but also younger millennials who desire a more defined v-line, sharper or smaller face shape, Sygma Lift is a non-invasive facial skin lifting alternative that reshapes without a scalpel.
Sygma Lift uses patented 2nd generation High Intensity Focused Ultrasound which radically transformed facial lifting into a virtually painless experience without needles and sans scalpel. This treatment is ideal for patients seeking out the much coveted V-Shaped face, with skin tightening and improved contours of the neck and jawline, as well as reduction in prominence of that dreaded double chin.
You will appreciate visible skin tightening and lifting immediately after treatment, with progressive improvement over the next 4 to 6 weeks as your skin continue to generate collagen, allowing you to have more youthful looking skin with each passing day.
Anti ageing benefits include diminished fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth as well as overall skin rejuvenation.
A short investment of time for long lasting skin firming! Ultherapy is a novel, FDA-approved ultrasound-based skin lifting technology that works well below the surface of the skin to bring about skin tightening and lifting benefits. Additional benefits one can experience from this treatment include improvement in skin texture and evenness in skin tone.
Areas on the face which can benefit from Ultherapy include droopy eyelids, crows’ feet to help look more refreshed. Sagging skin on the cheeks, and folds from the nose to the mouth and drooping corners of the mouth can also be improved with Ultherapy.
With Ultherapy, your skin responds to the treatment by producing new collagen, and gradually tightening of the skin over time. The end result is an overall natural lift and conditioning of the skin!
The regenerative process starts right away and patients may be able to see some lifting of the skin. But the full effect build gradually over 2 to 3 months and this is when you can see optimal results. What’s more there is no downtime with Ultherapy. Your skin may appear flushed after treatment but will subside after a few hours.
