Beauty Treatments Under 60 Minutes That Can Change Your Skin

Party season is approaching, and whilst most of us are looking forward to that big holiday or party, some of us might be thinking of having something done to undo the toil that work or stress has done to our appearances first. Here are the best no-nonsense treatments that topped our list because of their amazing abilities to change the skin in less than 60 minutes.   HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS Age and weight loss may rob the face of its youthful volume and leave it looking tired and old. Those with sunken cheeks and strong nasolabial lines can restore volume to their midfaces with volume high definition lift, which places hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers strategically in the cheeks, giving the midface a much-desired natural-looking lift and restore subtle, youthful curves at the same time. But that’s not all. HA fillers can be used to augment a flat nose bridge, a short or receding chin and even fill in deeply etched wrinkles. These natural fillers are biodegradable – your body breaks Continue Reading

The Facelifts Of Tomorrow – Three Skin Treatments That Will Reduce Your Skin Age Drastically

The anti-aging treatments of tomorrow will relax wrinkles, smoothen out fine lines, firm the skin and even fill up lines on the face. Check out these 3 powerful doctor-approved treatments that will reduce your skin age drastically.   1. YOUTH SAVANT A youth miracle in a needle, they say. Youth Savant contains polynucleotides (PN), the building blocks of DNA required for cellular survival in our skin. Purified from salmon germ cells, our skin uses these DNA building blocks to build a natural resilience, resulting in younger, more youthful skin. Normal skin is not only subject to normal aging processes, it is also subject to inflammatory processes and damage brought on by the environment. Youth Savant contains PNs which aid in wound healing, and anti-inflammatory effects. One can expect improved skin elasticity, hydration, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, enhanced skin repair and normalization abilities, as well as improved skin tone and texture.   2. FOREVER YOUNG BBL Move over IPL, the BBL is the new multi-tasking light treatment for our skin Continue Reading

How A Treatment Called Youth Savant Saved My Skin

I don’t have scars. My earlier years of diligently applying anti-aging skincare from the age of 25 and then routine gentle laser resurfacing every now and then to smoothen fine lines and tighten my pores from the age of 32 has paid off. Everyone envies me for my smooth skin. Call me shallow but at the age of 57, I felt a little disappointed that one little flaw was giving my age away. My skin was fair but rather translucent-looking – I can see small vessels just beneath the surface and large green veins deeper beneath. Expression lines across the forehead and outside the eyes are common unless one likes strong Botox treatments, but I have expression folds – thin folds of skin that radiate from the expression lines… my skin is crepey and thin.   YOUTH SAVANT THE MIRACLE HEALER I call Youth Savant a miracle healer because it is a treatment that acts like a DNA boost for aging or inflamed cells. This skin rejuvenating treatment puts polynucleotides Continue Reading

The New Age Microneedle Lift You Need To Try Right Now

So you want to look fresher, younger, faster. The sagging skin around the jawline and the jowls add 10 years to your looks and it bothers you (rightfully). What are your options then, if you don’t want a surgical facelift? Anti-aging aficionados will agree that not every less invasive treatment out there fulfills its promise. Truth is everyone’s skin makeup is a little different, and people respond variably to these collagen-inducing treatments. You may have read or even done a few non-invasive skin lifting treatments such as ultrasound focused ultherapy (or HIFU) and radiofrequency (RF) Thermage.
