This Helped Me Tone My Butt Effortlessly

The idea that I can have my butt toned by just lying down for 30 minutes sounds amazing. In fact, it sounds too good to be true. Yet, the latest technology to join the non-surgical fat reduction gang of treatments, magnetic muscle sculpting has gotten people obsessed, because although effortless, it is a kind of supplementation to exercise. There are no drugs to take, no needles and knives to bear.   HOW MAGNETIC MUSCLE STIMULATION WORKS First of all, this is mainly painless, but not sensation-free. It feels exactly like a really intense butt workout. Starting from a lower power, this is gradually turned up to stress-stimulate the muscle to induce timed, controlled contractions. After a series of contractions, it moves on to a tapping mode to help break down lactic acid released by the muscles. MMS can be applied over your clothes too. It uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to cause supramaximal contractions which are involuntary. Its benefits are two-fold: firstly it stimulates muscle contractions which builds muscle fibers for Continue Reading

Mistakes To Avoid If You Have Acne

When we have acne, the instinct is always to do something to get rid of them quickly. Read on the find out the biggest mistakes we make with these nasty blemishes.   1. Drying Your Pimples And Face Out Pimples are caused by clogged pores, and drying them out gets rid of them right? Overdoing it and dehydrating the skin excessively can cause the reverse, triggering the skin to produce even more oil than usual.

How Do Facelifts Of The Future Look Like?

Speak of facelifts and painful recovery comes to mind. But the worlds of plastic surgery and dermatology are becoming increasingly intertwined. Less invasive treatments are what patients now want and doctors have come up with creative techniques to try to marry the lowest downtime treatments with the most natural-looking age-reversal treatments possible. If the skin aging is too far advanced, the surgical facelift is still the longest lasting and possibly the most effective treatment of choice. Apart from weeks of bruising and swelling, potential patients also have to accept higher surgical risks. Rather than having to mitigate these risks later in life, patients are opting for treatments earlier. Facelifts of the future do not involve the scalpel. Instead, they are done under the comfort of topical numbing only.   STEMCELL FACELIFT – YOUTH SAVANT You might have heard of hyaluronic acid skinboosters, but this is not it. Youth Savant is stemcell extract therapy containing building blocks of purified salmon DNA. Using microinjections, this is delivered into the skin to increase Continue Reading

How To Look 10 Years Younger Without Surgery

Who wants to look young forever? While aging is inevitable, there are things you can do to save your skin (literally) from drooping and from wrinkles, at least for another few more years. Here are some of the best treatments to reverse premature signs of aging.   1. THE PLASMA FACELIFT Think of this as the ultimate skin firming treatment you can find, without having to undergo surgery. Neogen Plasma combines heat with cutting edge plasma energy. Known as the fourth state of the matter, plasma energy is converted from nitrogen gas and used to deliver uniform heating to skin for skin tightening benefits.   2. DRY SKIN DRINK UP As we get older, the skin appears dull for a few reasons. One of these would be a reduction in intrinsic hyaluronic acid within our skin, as natural production starts to slow down. Drinking more water will usually be futile, since hyaluronic acid is the chief molecule of water for our skin. Try babydrop fillers, a skin-boosting treatment with tiny Continue Reading

The New Complexion Uplifter

There is an unexpected benefit of Botox, which is traditionally known for smoothening out wrinkles. Apparently, doctors are using it to treat oily skin, great news for oil slicks! Botox works by blocking signals from nerves which control muscles, preventing it from contracting fully. Without a full contraction, harsh wrinkles appear more relaxed. Apart from being FDA-approved to treat forehead lines and crow’s feet, it also got approved for hyperhidrosis as well as migraines. And now (albeit still an off-label use), it can be injected to reduce oil production.   HOW DOES MICROREFINE BOTOX REDUCE OIL PRODUCTION? Similarly to how Botox restricts the activation of muscles, Botox injected skin-deep (Microrefine Botox) can prevent activation of oil (and sweat), a complexion saver if you are cursed with an oily complexion that makes your face look like an oil pan or if your skin tends to clog or get breakouts. A diluted dose injected intradermally into the forehead, cheeks, chin and even the nose will do it. It can still paralyse the Continue Reading
