Ultherapy: A Non-Surgical Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and lift and tighten loose skin, resulting in a more lifted face and neck. It is the only FDA-cleared procedure that lifts the skin on the neck, chin, and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. How Ultherapy Works Ultherapy works by delivering microfocused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin, where it creates tiny thermal lesions. These thermal lesions stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps to tighten and lift the skin. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, and our skin begins to sag and wrinkle. The treatment is also able to target the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), which is the layer of connective tissue that provides support to the skin. Benefits of Ultherapy Ultherapy has several benefits, including: It is a non-surgical procedure, so there is no downtime or recovery time. It is a Continue Reading

All you need to know about lash extensions

What are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are eyelashes that are attached to your own natural eyelashes using a semi-permanent adhesive to make your lash fringe look longer, fuller, and darker. Types of lashes Eyelash extensions come in different lengths, volumes, and curls. Due to different eye shapes and length, the lash artist usually customises the length, volume and curl of the lashes for each individual. For example, to achieve a wide-eyed effect, the lash artist will use longer lashes towards the outer corners of the eyes and shorter lashes in the inner corners. Here is an eyelash extension guide showing the different lengths, volumes (thickness) and curls of the eyelashes.   How to take care of eyelash extensions? Due to the nature of the lash adhesive, customers are advised not to apply any oil-based makeup or use any oil-based makeup remover around the eyes.

4 ways to minimize the appearance of large pores

                        3 reasons why you may have larger pores: 1. Genetics The size of your pores may be genetic. Hence, if your parents have large pores, you are most likely to have large pores as well.   2. Not Protecting Your Skin From UV Exposure When you do not apply sunscreen regularly, you are exposing your skin to the Sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV breaks down collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of your skin. This causes your skin to lose its firmness and sag, resulting in the appearance of larger pores.   3. Hormones, Oily Skin and Clogged Pores During and sometimes after puberty, hormones may cause sebaceous glands to produce more oil. An overproduction of oil can result in clogged pores and acne, which makes pores appear larger.   How to reduce the appearance of large pores?   1. Build a Good Skin Care Regimen Not all skincare products will work for everyone. However, it Continue Reading
