Choosing your first aesthetic treatment can be confusing. You want a treatment that will give you optimal results, at the right price, with minimal down time. But with so many aesthetic treatments available, how do you know which one is for you? At illumia Medical we have treatments to suit your every skin and beauty concern. In fact, we’ve narrowed down three treatments that are suitable for anyone who is looking to begin their journey with aesthetics treatments.
illumia PicoSure Laser Treatment
Tackle pigmentation, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles with this laser that is quick (appointments typically last only 15 to 20 minutes), relatively painless, requires minimal downtime and fewer sessions to show results (though results may vary).
The innovative 755nm laser delivers light pulses in a trillionth of a second (picoseconds, hence the name) deep into the layers of the skin. This breaks down pigment in the skin for brighter, clearer, more radiant skin. At the same time it helps tackle acne scars, soften the look for fine lines and wrinkles by boosting production of collagen and elastin.
Since this laser treatment uses picosecond laser technology to create pulses of pressure waves that target treatment zones, it minimises the risks of heat-related side effects on the skin making it safe for people with deeper skin tones. Plus, due to its ultra-fast pulses and specialised wavelength, all you will experience is tiny pinpricks of sensation around the treatment areas, making it ideal for those with a low pain threshold. However, the treatment increases photosensitivity, which means you will have to limit sun exposure and be religious about applying and reapplying sunscreen.
illumia Elite 5D Face Rejuvenation
As someone looking to get their first aesthetic treatment, you might be searching for that one treatment that will help you target multiple concerns like rough, dull skin, weakened barrier and reduced facial definition, all in a single session. The good news is, the illuma Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation is that treatment.
The non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment uses the FDA-approved Cynosure device that has dual wavelengths of 755nm and 1064nm. Together these are able to target 5 layers of the skin working from the most superficial to the deepest to help heal and rejuvenate skin, and sculpt facial contours.
The device reduces fat deposits in the deeper layers of skin to help sculpt the face while simultaneously tightening fascia and stimulating collagen production using its photothermal effect. This helps firm skin and further define facial contours. Benefits to the upper layers include improved texture, strengthened skin barrier, reduced redness and a healthy radiant glow. The whole treatment is via a contact-free treatment tip with reduces the chances of cross contamination between patients. However, as skin type and condition differ from person to person, results will also vary.
Your session will probably only last an hour, and any discomfort is soothed with numbing cream and a stream of cool air. With zero down time, you’re able to return to your routine immediately. Plus, since this laser doesn’t increase photosensitivity, you can continue with your outdoor activities.
You can now try the illumia Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation at the special price of $1,200 (U.P $1,500).
HA Skin Booster
If you’re looking to address the first signs of ageing that show up as dullness, dehydration and loss of volume, HA Skin Booster is the treatment for you. This safe and effective non-surgical treatment has minimal down time and little to no pain, depending on your pain threshold.
Think of it as an injectable anti-ageing treatment. It has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and is injected into 5 precise Bio Aesthetic Points (BAP) to improve skin hydration and help firm skin by stimulating production of collagen and elastin. The 5 precise points are away from nerves and major blood vessels reducing the risk of injury.
What sets the HA Skin Booster apart from other dermal fillers is its unique composition. It is made up of high molecular weight (HMWHA) and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA) formulated with unique patented NAHYCO Hybrid Technology. This distinct formulation allows it to flood skin with hydration while also improving the skin’s ability to retain moisture. It stimulates production of four different types collagen, as well as elastin, the two proteins that keep skin firm and bouncy giving it a youthful appearance.
It’s best to get this treatment at a reputed aesthetic clinic like illumia Medical, as it requires a skilled professional with thorough knowledge of and experience with injecting at the BAP to get the best results. Still, since each person’s skin type and condition are different, results may vary.
How do I know which is right for me?
Everyone’s skin is different, so it is recommended that you speak to an aesthetic doctor or dermatologist to work out the best option for your skincare goals. Depending on your skin condition and what you seek to achieve, the type of treatment(s) will vary from individual to individual.
