Beauty filters are so 2016. Why use them when you can blur pores, sculpt contours, refine texture, soften lines and wrinkles and get glowing skin in real life? In place of the blurring tool, all you need is a few innovative aesthetic treatments that will address all these concerns. At illumia Medical we have come up with three simple ways to look like you have filtered skin for real. No glitches, no bugs, just great skin.
One of the most popular filters is the one that gives you a small, sculpted, V-shaped face. While a filter will give you this effect for a few moments, getting the V-Shaped Face Lift aesthetic treatment at illumia Medical will ensure longer lasting results. This treatment concentrates High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU technology on the lower half of the face to achieve your beauty goals. It works by targeting the deeper layers of skin with focused beams of ultrasound energy to trigger collagen production and blast fat at the subcutaneous layer. Increased collagen helps firm and tighten the skin at the jawline, and as the fat cells are eliminated from the body you will notice a more chiselled visage so you no longer need to use a filter or buy another contouring product again. Bonus: this treatment also helps to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Another reason people use filters is because they love the look of smooth skin, minus any texture. This effect can be wholly achieved minus filters thanks to the Tone Up Laser Duo, which is a combination of Pro Yellow Gold Laser and Pico Discover Laser. Together these target pigmentation, pores, dark spots, redness, acne and bumps to give you flawless skin. A dual wavelength laser, the Pro Yellow Gold has a 532nm Green wavelength that is specifically absorbed by haemoglobin lesions, while the 577nm Yellow wavelength targets and breaks down red pigment. This enables it to tackle redness, visible veins and dilated capillaries, acne and rosacea for an even skin tone.
The Pico Discovery Laser on the other hand is able to target a wide range of blemishes like dark spots, pigmentation, solar lentigo and freckles as well as acne thanks to dual wavelengths that work in both Q-switch and photo-thermal mode. Not only does it break down pigment clusters for brighter, even toned skin that looks flawless, it also boosts collagen production for overall rejuvenation and softens the look of lines and wrinkles.
To get the complete skin-perfecting, face-slimming, radiant glass skin effect of a filter for real, it’s the 8D Skin Enhancer aesthetic treatment you want. The treatment combines the benefits of fillers, the proprietary illumia Skin Booster as well as aforementioned HIFU to give you filtered skin IRL. Fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid and strategically injected into the face to restore volume, smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen for firm, plump skin that is radiant. This effect is further amplified thanks to the collagen boosting, skin tightening benefits of HIFU technology. Add to that illumia’s Skin Booster, which is packed with hyaluronic acid and a proprietary blend of skin repairing ingredients and you have radiant, refined skin that truly looks like glass skin.
