It’s no longer necessary to go ‘under the knife’ to take years off your appearance. Non-invasive, pain-free and virtually pain-free, minimally invasive techniques that bring back that youthful look are available, today. You need not plan vacation time for recovery time. Best of all, it doesn’t cost a fortune to tweak an area if it will make you feel better. Technology has come a long way, baby, and these beauty breakthroughs work!
The Salt Facial™ is brand new and follows the ‘salt cave’ and ‘Epsom salt’ phenomena. Salt has been used to heal for centuries. We gargle with it when we have a sore throat. We bathe in it when we have sore muscles. The number one question asked about the salt facial is, “Isn’t it drying to your skin?” The answer is, no. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Moisture is drawn to salt. Once the natural salt is used to exfoliate the skin, its secondary intention is to absorb moisture from the topical applied thereafter to reveal plumper, smoother, glowing skin with better results than regular facials, hydra facials and microdermabrasion. Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson, Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lawrence have all been said to use salts as part of their beauty regimen.
SkinPen® is the only microneedling device working towards FDA-approval. Microneedling is minimally invasive, meaning tiny needles puncture the facial or body skin in an effort to purposely damage it. This tricks the body into healing mode. Collagen production begins and the result is plumper and more flawless skin. Secondly, those little holes in your face allow your products to dive deeper into your skin for better absorption. You’ll need 24 hours before you’ll want to apply makeup with this one but it’s worth the day hanging home and catching up on the DVR. Jennifer Aniston revealed her love for microneedling in a 2014 interview with People Magazine.
Vanquish™ fat melting doesn’t hurt like CoolSculpting, which is why it’s so popular. There is no downtime, it’s a few quick office visits and the fat that’s eliminated, is gone permanently. Fat cells don’t multiply. They get bigger or smaller based on your diet. But, once fat cells are destroyed with Vanquish, or removed with liposuction or a tummy tuck, they can’t come back. Whoopi Goldberg raves about her results with Vanquish on The View 2014.
Ultherapy®, the non-surgical lift, is truly a gift for the person who doesn’t want to go under the knife for a facelift. Again, a pretty quick office visit, Ultherapy uses safe ultrasound to tighten skin by stimulating collagen production and elastin on the brow, face, neck and décolleté. There is no cutting, minimal discomfort during treatment and most patients return to normal activities right away. Christie Brinkley is a spokesperson for Ultherapy.
