Valentine’s day is an occasion of love. But there is nothing stopping you from making it an occasion of self love. While each person may have a different idea of what looking great for a date night with your significant other or gal pals is, we can all agree that healthy, glowing skin is always a good look.
Here are some ways you can show yourself and your skin some love this Valentine’s Day. Bonus: you will look snatched, radiant and thriving when you arrive for your date.
Injectables: Yes, injectables can seem a bit scary, but with numbing creams, these treatments are almost painless. Plus, this is a highly efficient way to get nutrients right where they belong—in the deeper layers of the skin. Treatments like HA Skin Boosters are packed with pure hyaluronic acid in multiple molecular weights, and when this hyaluronic acid is injected deep within the skin it is easily synthesised by the body. The hyaluronic acid helps to keep skin plump and hydrated while also boosting the production of collagen and elastin. This results in a more lifted, naturally snatched visage with improved texture and softer lines and wrinkles.
Another injectable is the PDRN Skin Booster that uses PN and PDRN that are extracted from salmon DNA. Not only are these ingredients rich in polypeptides, vitamins and amino acids, they are also biocompatible with the human body and safe for long term use. When injected into the dermis, PN and PDRN help improve texture, firmness and elasticity of the skin making it look youthful and radiant.
Elite 5D Duo Laser: A single session of the treatment will give you multiple benefits. We’re talking reduced redness, a stronger skin barrier, improved texture, chiselled contours and more bouncy skin. And it’s totally non-invasive. Using a combination of two lasers of different wavelengths, this skin rejuvenation treatment delivers energy to five layers of skin right from the upper to the deepest layer of skin via a contact-free treatment tip, which reduces chances of contamination between clients. This kicks off collagen production, lipolysis of fat cells and helps tighten facia at the deeper levels. At the surface, it helps rejuvenate skin for a more even toned, radiant complexion. Did we mention you’re done in about an hour? It’s the ideal lunchtime treatment.
Ulthera 360: Exclusive to illumia, this protocol combines Ulthera with illumia skin booster for the ultimate lifted and radiant visage. Ulthera uses ultrasound therapy to noninvasively lift and tighten skin. These concentrated ultrasound waves bypass the upper layers of skin—which means there is no lasting irritation or redness—to target the SMAS layer to trigger the production of collagen and elastin. This helps lift and tighten skin from within, while softening the look of lines and wrinkles on the surface. Thanks to proprietary visualisation technology, the treatment can be completely customised to each person’s needs as each of us has a different ageing pattern. The illumia Skin Booster is a blend of hyaluronic acid and illumia Medical’s proprietary blend of skin nourishing and repairing ingredients, that works on the upper layers of skin to hydrate, heal, improve dermal structure and promote skin regeneration.
