When lockdowns around the world and in Singapore occurred, many of us were left stranded with our beauty therapies. Not that it wasn’t always welcome – initially rethinking our need for beauty therapies, we might not need facials and lasers much since during quarantine since we are going to put less makeup, heck we can even save on our sunscreen! But what translated over the next few weeks during lockdown saw incongruences on skins that were never before noticed.
Now it’s already July in 2020 and Melbourne just went into its second lockdown in four months. In Singapore we are seeing a climb again in cases post lockdown, as with many countries around the world. But there is still a small chance that our social lives may return hopefully not too long from now, so quick results are in demand post lockdown. Here are the top 5 non-invasive treatments to do to quickly refresh (and reset) your looks.
SKIN AGING AND DEHYRATION: YOUTH PRESERVE
Drooping and dehydration are big concerns as these are also telltale signs of skin aging. Try a supercharged treatment called Youth Preserve (actually Profhilo), an injectable ultra-temporary special hyaluronic acid filler that hydrates skin instantly, plumping up lifeless and tired skin. But apart from working like an injectable moisturizer, Profhilo has been shown to stimulate intrinsic collagen, thanks to its very unique molecular structure.
FURROWED BROWS AND CROW’S FEET: BOTOX
A quick and fuss-free way to get rid of deep furrows around the forehead, between the eyes and lines radiating from the outside corner of the eyes is Botox! Strangely, there are more people than you think who reach out for Botox to “medicate” a headache from a very strong frown. There is nothing more gratifying that watching those lines soften magically just from a few tiny needle jabs.
SKIN DULLNESS AND ROUGH TEXTURE: BB AQUATOUCH
If you felt like your skin thickened several layers with dead skin over weeks of quarantine and you can’t wait to have them scrubbed off fast, you are not alone. Try BB Aquatouch, an FDA-approved thulium laser which gives a photoshop retouching effect in a matter of days! This thulium laser treats the basal epidermal layer of the skin, scrubbing it free of irregular colour and also lightens stubborn pigments, leaving your skin dewy with a definite party glow.
CONGESTED SKIN: DEEP DEEP CLEAN FACIAL
Suffered from granite outbreaks during quarantine? It could be due to a shift in diet (homemade sweets!) or stress. Try a superstar facial such as the Deep Deep Clean, a salicylic-centric facial that helps unclog pores and keen skin bright and clear.
SUNKEN CHEEKS AND DARK EYE CIRCLES: VOLUME HIGH DEFINITION LIFT AND REVITALIFT EYE
If you have facial skin droopiness or sunken eye hollows, try some hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Filler techniques such as the volume high definition lift aims at lifting sagging cheeks and replacing subtle lost volume, at the same time it can alleviate dark circles caused by sunken undereye hollows. The cheek lift achieved also softens deep nasolabial folds.
