Women no longer have to worry about parting with their beautiful younger selves. Thanks to the advances in skin care technology, the effects of ageing, environmental factors, genetics and leading an unhealthy lifestyle can be reversed. Let me be clear, I’m not talking about going under the knife or anything dangerous like that. Today, there are a number of non-invasive, anti-ageing options that are much safer and produce natural looking results. And the best thing? It’s incredibly easy to get these treatments. Whether you are living in New South Wales, Queensland or Victoria beauty salon professionals offer a variety of safe procedures to help you, metaphorically speaking, “stop the time”. Let’s go through some of the most effective ones.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a treatment that is becoming increasingly popular among Victoria beauty salon goers. Also called a photofacial, IPL is a 30-minute procedure during which the skin is flashed with intense pulses of light. These pulses of light produce only minimal discomfort and are able to penetrate deep and treat problems hiding under the surface of the skin which other procedures aren’t able to. If you suffer from blotchy, sun-damaged or heavily discoloured skin and deep age lines – you are the right candidate for IPL. This procedure is also fast and involves no recovery time, making it convenient for people for with very busy schedules.
If you have mild pigmentation due to ageing, light acne scars or small wrinkles, you can have them removed during your lunch time break. Don’t believe me? Then you must have never heard about microdermabrasion, the number one procedure among business women looking to freshen up their looks. Also called “lunchtime” wrinkle treatment, microdermabrasion can be administered in 15 minutes at any professional beauty salon. It uses tiny crystals which mildly exfoliate the skin’s top layer and get rid of dead and damaged cells.
Both of the aforementioned procedures effectively rejuvenate the texture of the skin, but they do little to lift sagging muscles or reduce cheek hollows from age-related fat loss. For these problems you might want to try injections with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are materials that can fill up skin folds such as smile lines, create fuller lips, lift cheeks and pad bags under the eyes. Rather than just smoothing or tightening the skin like Botox does, dermal fillers completely reverse an aged facial profile to a more youthful one. Fillers generally use collagen, a protein normally found in the skin which controls its elasticity. This procedure is also quick and painless and lasts somewhere between 12-18 months, after which you might need to do it again. However, with every following treatment you will get better results which will last longer.
