For tricky skin issues such as enlarged pores, acne scarring and stretch marks, skin needling o ers a route to smooth- ness where once there was none.
Particularly suitable if your skin reacts to chemical treatments, this mechanical treatment will help retexturise uneven skin tone by stimulating the skin’s healing process and ramping up collagen production.
“This is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that works to improve the overall texture of your skin,” says Natalie Abouchar, registered nurse and founder of Privée Clinic in Sydney.
Abouchar uses the Venus Viva machine, which adds radio frequency heat to boost results.
“The added heat creates more collagen stimulation,” says Abouchar. Expect only mild discomfort (a numbing cream can be applied for those with a low pain threshold) and mild redness post-procedure.
Bells & Whistles Facial
If you don’t want to forgo your facialist’s bespoke treatment, which can tick o several skin issues in the one appointment, seek one that blends traditional therapies with new tech.
The Red- Carpet Laser Facial at All Saints Clinic in Sydney’s Double Bay will x a host of issues.
Offering 90 minutes of skin decadence, this is a multi-stepped treatment geared towards instant complexion radiance.
Your skin will be deeply cleansed, before being offered up an old-school (read: heavenly) facial massage.
The tech element is up next with a couple of passes of the Laser Genesis (a non-invasive, no-downtime laser) to boost skin clarity and texture, before a nourishing, skin-strengthening pep- tide mask is applied (yes, you can expect a hand massage), followed by 20 minutes of LED Phototherapy.
You’ll walk out feeling red carpet ready (even if you’re just focused on Netflix and chill).
