On the face of it

From medi to photo facials, these procedures will have you looking young instantly.

Harshit Malhotra, 43, a marketing professional has been leading a highly action-packed and hectic lifestyle for the past 20 years leading to stress lines, wrinkles and dark circles. But, a few units of botox and soft tissue fillers in the right place, and Harshit is looking younger, and better than ever before. For those looking to improve their skin, like Harshit, here is a list of some skin procedures that will help you look your best:

Hydrating medi-facials: Medi-facials are special medical facials designed to treat specific skin conditions under the supervision of skin doctors. A dermatologist will first examine your skin closely to understand the kind of repair it needs. A medi-facial may have specifically anti-acne properties or deep cleansing properties or anti-oxidants to improve skin’s appearance. The treatment may involve vitamin or oxygen infusion to rejuvenate the skin and equip it to fight the winter season and also administer nutrients that will ensure deep hydration and moisturisation.

Exfoliating procedures: Exfoliation promotes the shedding of the skin’s dull, outer layer and with it the damage suffered by this layer, the fine lines and discoloration that reside there. Peels like jet peels, glow peels are among the most popular exfoliating and skin rejuvenation treatments. Using a chemical agent, the cosmetic dermatologist will help your skin shed the outer dead layer, in whose place a new layer of skin regenerates. Microdermabrasion is another good exfoliating procedure.

Hyaluronic acid fillers: The skin’s lower layers contain a compound called hyaluronic acid (HA) that helps give the skin its vitality and flexibility. It also gives skin the ability to absorb and retain water to keep itself hydrated and nourished. As we age, the skin loses its natural reserves of hyaluronic acid, resulting in dullness, loss of volume and radiance as well as fine lines. When administered into the skin, Juvederm, replenishes the skin’s lost reserves of HA and the result is improved vitality, more radiance and glow and deeper hydration of the skin in a natural way.

Skin brightening photofacials: Everyone wants glowing skin. This can be achieved instantly with RevLite and ClearLift Pro laser technologies that give the face a glow and lift in one session.
