Dreaming of the perfect skin for your wedding day?March 6, 2020 12:54 pm
Ask any upcoming bride or groom what their biggest worry is about the big day, and above even such important concerns as the venue, the dress, and the guests, there will probably be worries about appearance and skin in particular. Everyone wants wedding day pictures they can treasure forever, and it’s probably the most public and most photographed event each of us will ever have in our lives. It’s just the kind of event that makes many of us feel self-conscious about that odd little facial mark that doesn’t normally bother us, or maybe wish our skin was just a little brighter. If you would like to look your very best on your wedding day then there are a number of quick, easy, and very affordable non-surgical aesthetics in Dubai on offer to refresh your look right now.
The muscle relaxant botulinum toxin is the most popular anti-aging treatment out there, and is available at the best aesthetic specialists in Dubai. During the process, a number of small doses of medical-grade neurotoxic protein are injected into the area – relaxing the overactive muscles and leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin. Crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines and neckline bands can all be treated. It’s quick, no anaesthetic is needed, and there’s no downtime either. You can expect to see a difference 1-3 days afterwards. The treatment itself takes less than 30 minutes. Botox can also be used to control excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. This has the advantage of being long lasting (up to seven months) and won’t block pores, as some clinical-strength antiperspirants can do.
- Dermal fillers
Fillers are currently second only to Botox in popularity across the world of aesthetics in Dubai and everywhere else. The injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are very helpful in counteracting the loss of volume in the skin that happens over time – they can help hide lines, improve the appearance of cheeks and chins, and cover eye bags. Used in conjunction with another treatment such as a chemical peel or microneedling, the overall effects can be even better. The treatment takes only 30 minutes and can last up to a year. A local anaesthetic is used so discomfort is minimal. Results are near-instant but bruising can occur, so book a week before the big day, just to be safe.
For a special occasion an extra-special facial is required. Oxygen facials are the newest trend for those with normal skin wanting a bit of a boost. Intraceuticals is a range of pressurised oxygen facials, and each is administered by professionals at Drs. Nicolas & Asp. Also used as a calming measure after more drastic treatments, these intensely hydrating facials brighten and plump the skin, soothing problem areas and creating a fresher look. Alternatively if you have a medical condition such as acne, then Rejuvi Laboratory medical facials may be appropriate. This American brand, available amongst the best skincare in Dubai, focusses on combining biochemistry with herbology, giving you the benefits of both worlds. The range offer hydrating, pore reducing, and skin lightening facials, among others.
- Medical microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is the process of using microcrystals to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. Diamond microdermabrasion involves using diamond tips in this process, as opposed to normal crystals – the superior hardness of the diamonds allows for more accurate use, thereby reducing the chance of skin irritation or any adverse reactions. The best aesthetic specialist in Dubai will offer this form of treatment. The main benefit of this process is younger looking skin, though the treatment can also help in easing minor acne scars, reducing pore size, and evening out skin tone. There’s no recovery time after a treatment and it can be done in your lunch break – though a range of sessions will be needed to achieve the best effect, typically 3-6 sessions, so it might need a little planning before your big event.
- Chemical peels
If you have deep scars, such as from severe acne, sun damage, or stretch marks, this form of treatment can help. A chemical peel can also remove the signs of fine wrinkles, age spots, and dark patches. The result after the treatment is younger, healthier looking skin. However, while this is a great low-impact alternative to surgery, even with the best skincare in Dubai a peel will cause the very outer layer of your skin to peel away. It typically takes 3-7 days to complete, with deeper peels taking upto 10 days. During this time, you need to stay indoors as much as possible and wear strong sunscreen if venturing out. Make sure you give yourself enough ‘recovery’ time before photos. Also, make sure you consult a qualified doctor for aesthetics in Dubai when deciding on the right peel for you.
- Dermapen and microneedling
The ‘blood facial’ recently made famous by Kim Kardashian was actually a microneedling procedure, whereby a roller fitted with microneedles was rolled over the skin, stimulating the skin’s collagen production, and thickening and tightening it. A growth factor serum used along the way helps the effect. While Kim used growth factor made from her own blood (called a ‘vampire facial’), clinics offering the best skincare in Dubai will use a branded product which you will then need to use at home yourself afterwards. This procedure is great for those with uneven bumpy skin or acne scars, as it naturally thickens the skin, and is less invasive than lasers. A numbing cream is used, so it shouldn’t hurt. Most patients will need upto 6 sessions, and prep treatment is required before the procedure as well as afterwards, so its sensible to factor at least 12 weeks in before the big day. It’s also a great treatment to ‘top up’ again, up to a year later on.
Mesotherapy is so called because the middle layer of the skin – the mesoderm – is stimulated through direct injections of vitamins or medications. Much less scary than it sounds, the injections are quite shallow and there is also the ‘needle-less’ alternative of a low-pulse electric current which achieves a similar effect. Both are available at the best aesthetic specialists in Dubai. The products used depend on the condition being treated, and are all FDA-approved. Most forms of the treatment focus on removing fat and cellulite, and can include hyaluronidase, L-carnitine and aminophylline. These can have a big impact on facial problem areas such as eye bags and double chins, and can also work on other body areas such as legs and the stomach. Side effects are uncommon but can include bruising, so make sure you allow a week after the procedure, just in case.
Laser resurfacing is a more intense skin renewal procedure that can have more dramatic results, but which also requires a slightly longer recovery time, depending on the type of laser process used. Basically, it involves removing the outer layers of the skin – so it is a more serious choice and a decision should be considered carefully, after a proper consultation. If you choose this option, make sure it’s performed by a registered doctor or nurse, and choose the best aesthetic specialist in Dubai. The process can fix sagging skin, redness and fine lines. A number of treatments will usually be required and the skin will be red and sensitive – sun screen must be used before and after. The final look however can make the trouble worth it. Make sure to allow at least 3 weeks after the final treatment.
