It’s been noted that the number of people willing to go under the knife in the name of beauty is on the decline (research from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons shows a fall in cosmetic surgical procedures of nearly 8% in 2017 YoY), so naturally now is the perfect time to consider and explore procedures that do not require a intensive surgery. We checked out the latest game-changing beauty innovations, letting you look your best without the fear-inducing invasive surgery.
It’s evident that the search for the fountain of youth has been going on for centuries what with all the beauty serums, pills and products making promise after promise. However non-invasive beauty treatments are effective in better and longer lasting results. As we age, we know our skin naturally starts to sag and lose its youthful elasticity.
Reverse aging through Rejuran Skin Healer is gaining popularity as an age-reversal medical treatment at the cellular level. Unlike other aesthetic treatments, Rejuran Healer is filler made of polynucleotides, also known as DNA, which is harvested from salmon (interestingly Victoria’s dermatologist had always told to eat salmon for her problematic skin!) Doctors to foster wound healing in diabetic patients have traditionally used salmon DNA. The filler is given to the patient using a micro-needle into the superficial layer of the skin, which allows its anti-aging benefits seep into the skin.
K Beauty has brought with it, the latest trend that is 'Glass skin’: it refers to a glowing complexion so smooth and flawless that it looks like a pane of glass. Achieving a glowing, almost reflective skin is only possible if there are no facial wrinkles, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and scars. As such, the only way to achieve ‘glass skin’ is to eliminate pigmentation and reduce pore size. This can be achieved with laser treatment for pigmentation and carbon laser peel treatment.
Facial Slimming is now possible and you can easily blitz your baby fat with Radiolysis Facial Slimming, which is an entirely safe non-surgical face slimming treatment which uses micro-needles to 'melt' the fats in your face by applying radiofrequency waves into the fatty deposits. As the fatty tissues are broken down, your body will drain them naturally from the circulatory system. Voila - a youthful, slimmer face is now yours all in a short time.
Our obsession to achieve the perfect bum reminiscent of Kim K has led to seeking non-surgery alternatives. The first FDA-approved minimally invasive cellulite procedure to target bottom and thigh dimples, Cellfina claims to reduce the appearance of 'orange peel' skin by 90%. Unlike other procedures, Cellfina treats the structural cause of cellulite, breaking up networks of connective tissue bands that can lead to puckering on the skin's surface. A session takes just 45 minutes and can last for up to three years.
