While expensive face creams can make your skin look good on the surface, for the festive season, deeper treatments that work from within the skin are required. Here are four facial treatments
guaranteed to give you flawless skin just in time for the festive season.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
A known favorite of Kim Kardashian, this FDA-approved therapy combines ingredients extracted from the patient’s own blood to stimulate the regrowth of elastin and collagen. This in turn, plumps up sagging areas and gently fills in fine lines. After a small volume of blood is taken from the patient’s arm, using a patented processing system, the sample is separated to concentrate the platelets and fibrin into a Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM). This is injected just below the surface to stimulate cell growth. Results are noticeable immediately, but become more obvious over time.
Pixel Fractional Laser
An ablative laser which resurfaces the skin, Pixel creates thousands of microscopic perforations on the skin, but the skin remains intact. The results can be noticeable after just one treatment and is ideal in the treatment of hyper pigmentation, sun damage, scarring, and fine lines. Results are often seen after one treatment however, the number of sessions will be dependent upon the areas being treated.
A gold standard treatment, Ultherapy goes deep into the skin and gently heats the skin’s tissue to tighten, firm, and lift loose skin without injury to the surface. This one hour treatment leverages the body’s own healing response to gradually restore the skin and its underlying tissue and over time, new collagen is created. With just one treatment, the regenerative process is triggered, but the full effect is gradual over the course of a few months.
This 20-minutes treatment is ideal for individuals suffering from age spots, broken capillaries, or minor pigmentation. A non-ablative laser is used to target red and the brown colors on the face to give a fresh, rejuvenated look. Best results are for people with lighter complexions and it is not suitable for darker skin colors. While the treatment is associated with minor discomfort, there is no pain involved.
