NO SCALPEL NEC­ES­SARY - THE LAT­EST BEAUTY TRENDS

Friday - - BEAUTY -

With so many new and im­proved non-sur­gi­cal treat­ments on of­fer, here are our ex­perts’ pre­dic­tions of what will be hot, and why, this year.

* WHAT: Platelet Rich Plasma Fa­cial Re­ju­ve­na­tion (PRP or ‘Vam­pire Fa­cial’)

* TAR­GET AREA: Anti-age­ing for the face. * EX­PERT DRMAURIZIO VIEL SAYS: Platelet Rich Plasma Fa­cial Re­ju­ve­na­tion treat­ment uses the pa­tient’s own blood (in­jected into the face) to give a nat­u­ral boost to the skin – su­pe­rior to other ex­treme fa­cial treat­ments. The fa­cial is pop­u­lar with celebri­ties, and al­though not so new, it is in­creas­ing in de­mand all the time.

* INFO: Platelet Rich Plasma Fa­cial Re­ju­ve­na­tion, Dh4,500, is avail­able at LCAS in Dubai Health­care City and ShuiQi Spa in the At­lantis Ho­tel, 04 375 2393, www.LCAS.ae

* WHAT: Ulther­apy * TAR­GET AREA: Tis­sue tight­en­ing mainly on the face, but also used on other ar­eas of the body. * EX­PERT RE­BECCA TRE­STON SAYS: Ex­perts claim Ulther­apy is most ef­fec­tive for tis­sue tight­en­ing. This is a non-sur­gi­cal lunchtime pro­ce­dure with ab­so­lutely no down­time, and which only needs to be re­peated once ev­ery 18 months to three years. It is the only treat­ment world­wide to of­fer ul­tra­sound imag­ing and deep pen­e­tra­tion to the same level as sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures. Re­sults are in­stant, but tight­en­ing dras­ti­cally im­proves over the next eight months, last­ing up to three years.”

* INFO: Ulther­apy is avail­able at Re­becca Tre­ston at Euromed Clinic, Dh16,000, Dubai, 04 394 5422, www.eu­romed­clin­ic­dubai.com

* WHAT: Laser Fa­cial Tight­en­ing * TAR­GET AREA: Face and eye area. * EX­PERT DR GE­ORGE LE­FKOVITS SAYS: “Ther­mage [non-in­va­sive ra­diofre­quency ther­apy] is used for skin tight­en­ing and im­prove­ment of wrin­kles, mostly, around the face and eyes. It acts by work­ing un­der­neath the sur­face of the skin, there­fore leav­ing al­most no red­ness or re­cov­ery time. It does not re­place a face/neck lift but can lead to im­prove­ment of age­ing if wrin­kles and/or sag­ging are not se­vere.”

* INFO: Laser Fa­cial Tight­en­ing is avail­able at Body­Worx in Abu Dhabi 02 641 9961, www.body­worx.ae * WHAT: HC AC­CENT HD3D and HD Har­mony

* TAR­GET AREA: Im­prov­ing ev­ery­thing from wrin­kles to cel­lulite.

* EX­PERT DR RAB­BIA AS­LAM SAYS: “HC Ac­cent HD3D, bet­ter known at the Sweat X, will be rev­o­lu­tion­ary. This pro­ce­dure ef­fec­tively treats sweat­ing and body odour. It is a quick, pain­less treat­ment with im­me­di­ate im­prove­ment and last­ing re­sults.”

* INFO: HC Ac­cent and HD Har­mony is avail­able at HC MedSpa in Lon­don, with two clin­ics open­ing in Dubai this sum­mer. www.hcmedspa.com

* WHAT: TiteFX * TAR­GET AREA: Anti-age­ing for the face. * EX­PERT DRMAURIZIO VIEL

SAYS: “We are of­fer­ing [TiteFX] fa­cial treat­ments us­ing ra­diofre­quency en­ergy that is ef­fec­tive at tight­en­ing the skin, and tar­gets small ar­eas of fat. On the face the ra­diofre­quency en­ergy has shown it is ef­fec­tive with skin resur­fac­ing, fine lines and tight­en­ing, with the ra­diofre­quency en­ergy de­liv­ered via a ma­trix of fine nee­dles.”
