It's a fact that face packs, serums, moisturisers, and products alike cannot entirely salvage our skin the way a derm-approved treatment can. Let's just say we're growing excessively conscious about our skin, and many of us are contemplating clinical procedures to reinstate that glow and address recurring concerns. Here are some of the safest (under an expert’s guidance) beauty procedures that are set to dominate 2022.
Microneedling, but with a twist. We've incorporated patches into our skin care regimen to counter pimples, diminish the appearance of spots, and resurrect our glow. These patches, soon, will be equipped with tiny needles to deliver actives deeper into the skin for better results. Sounds bizarre and daunting! But why dismiss it without giving it a shot? Literally.
02. Skin boosters
An in-clinic non-invasive procedure, boosters administer instant shots of hydration to our skin through microneedles. This treatment retains the softness and suppleness and stimulates collagen production to rejuvenate our skin. The end result? Firm, youthful, healthy-looking skin!
Another non-invasive treatment, SculpSure, employs a hands-free heat laser-belt that uses specific wavelengths and heat to eliminate fat within 25 minutes without disrupting the skin's surface. It's one of the best contouring treatments for the body, and it can target multiple areas at once.
04. LED light masks
A futuristic approach to skincare, the game-changing derm-administered LED light mask penetrates the skin to effect changes at a molecular level. Each mask employs a different spectrum of light wavelengths to address specific concerns. The blue light, for instance, targets acne-causing bacteria to zap breakouts; a red light increases circulation and stimulates collagen to combat wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing. These masks, with proper instructions from an expert, can be used at home as well.
