As the calendar flips from November into December we can really say the festive season is here. For many of us, this means putting our Christmas tree up, buying and wrapping presents, and eating one too many mince pies. However, it also means Christmas and New Year’s parties are back after the difficulties of last year.
Getting prepared for events this festive season may seem like a lot of work, but there are some fantastic treatments available today which won’t take up a huge amount of time and can provide results that you can see as we count down the days to Christmas. To let you know more about these treatments we have teamed up with Aesthetics Lab, an award-winning and highly respected cosmetic clinic based in London. Below are three treatments to look at which can help your skin look better this festive season.
Osmosis Facial Infusion with RevitaPen
This is a treatment you may not have heard about before, but one that could become much more popular thanks to the benefits it offers. The RevitaPen uses single-use surgical-grade anti-bacterial stainless-steel tips with 100 nano-sized circular-shaped pyramids to create channels in your skin. These channels help deliver the active ingredients of the facial deeper into your skin to maximize their effectiveness.
There are two key benefits to this treatment that makes it a great option for those looking to reduce the appearance of line and wrinkles or even out their skin tone. Firstly, there is no recovery time needed following this treatment, meaning you can go about your day without issue, and at Christmas with so many things to do this is really helpful! Secondly, this is one of the very few treatments that are safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding along with those who are current oncology patients.
Again, this may be a treatment you haven’t heard a lot about, but as we are approaching a busy festive period this could be just the answer some of you out there are looking for. Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency technology to heat the collagen-rich layers of your skin. The result of this is water molecules separating from the collagen in your skin, causing a contraction that tightens your skin. It also causes new collagen to be produced and deposited which tightens your skin further, leaving it looking smooth!
This treatment is great for those who are worried about sagging or loose skin. While this is a natural sign of aging that we go through, it can have a significant impact on our self-confidence. Thanks to Thermage FLX you can target areas of loose skin such as on your face or neck and you can see results immediately! With no recovery time needed and the potential to see results immediately, that can then last up to two years, this makes Thermage FLX an ideal treatment to explore this festive season.
Unlike the two treatments highlighted above, micro-needling is one you’re likely to be more familiar with. This is a treatment that some trace the origins of back to the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture. If you don’t know how micro-needling works, it uses (as the name would suggest) very small needles to puncture the skin in a specific area. This causes the body to activate its natural healing response which can reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production, which is vital to healthy and youthful-looking skin.
As with the other two treatments above, there is no major recovery time needed following a micro-needling treatment which makes it a great option for those who have a busy lifestyle. All of these treatments offer great benefits that can help your skin look its best this Christmas and New Year but remember it’s important to ensure wherever you have these treatments done that it is in a safe and experienced clinic that will priorities your health.
