With a stressful and busy lifestyle, a lot of women don’t have the time (and energy) to invest in daily treatments at home. After all, how many people do you actually know spend a good 20 minutes a day massaging in their skincare, or set aside half an hour for multi-masking?
The good news is, thanks to advances in the beauty industry, you don’t have to. Now, there is a surprising array of techniques and technology that can help you fight signs of ageing so you look better, younger and more radiant, fast. In just a matter of hours, sometimes even minutes, these quick and comfortable procedures promise to do everything from tightening skin and smoothing out your complexion to helping you fight the bulge. Here are four of the latest and most popular treatments from Dore Aesthetics to try.
For sagging skin, try: Radio Frequency
If you want to tighten and firm skin, be it on your face, neck or body, then radio frequency is the way to go. The non-invasive anti-ageing treatment uses energy to heat tissues and stimulate collagen production to create a lifting effect for more defined facial contours.
The Radio Frequency treatment at Dore Aesthetics combines Multipolar Radio Frequency with Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields and VariPulse technology. The Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields technology is said to boost skin regeneration, while VariPulse supposedly improves lymphatic drainage and stimulates circulation for an overall healthier complexion.
For hair removal, try: IPL
Let’s be honest, shaving is a hassle. And that’s not the only downside. It not only causes razor burns and ingrown hairs, but can also result in increased sensitivity in skin, and inflammation. A great permanent way to get rid of a hairy situation is to try Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).
The treatment emits an intense pulse of light energy into skin. The light energy turns into heat when absorbed by hairs, and this heat in turn destroys hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. And while you might need several treatments, the results of IPL are long-lasting, so you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing again.
For stubborn fats, try: Fat Freezing
It’s a (sad) fact that many of us have stubborn fats in areas like our hips, thighs, underarms or belly that we can’t seem to get rid of, no matter how much we exercise or diet. One non-invasive way to treat this is fat freezing. The treatment does exactly what its name suggests – it targets and freezes stubborn fat cells to destroy them.
The fat freezing technology works by cooling fat cells in the targeted areas to temperatures that are said to trigger their natural death, without damaging nerves or other tissues. Over a few weeks, the frozen fat cells will shrink and die, after which your body will naturally metabolise and eliminate the dead frozen fat cells.
For roughness and uneven skin tone, try: Chemical Peel
If you want a softer, smoother complexion fast, try a chemical peel. The treatment consists of applying a chemical solution, usually gentle acids, to exfoliate the top layer of skin. The new, regenerated skin below has a more even tone and texture. Even fine lines and wrinkles are said to look less obvious after.
