Aesthetic treatments used to be only accessible for tai-tais or the rich, but thanks to technological advances, some of these treatments have now been made fairly affordable and accessible to more people.
But first things first – aesthetic treatments are non-invasive procedures that don’t involve going under the knife. This, in turn, leads to lower downtime, which means you don’t have to go around with a swollen face for the next few days.
With the plethora of procedures available in the market, it’s easy to get confused or overwhelmed. Which is why we’ve rounded up four common ones, all of which are available at Dore Aesthetics.
Radio Frequency (RF)
For: Those who want to look like a millennial forever
You probably don’t need this now at your age, but bookmark it for the future. If you’re looking for a treatment to improve the appearance of sagging skin, whether on your face or body, without going under the knife, Radio Frequency (RF) treatments might be the answer. It heats up the deep layers of your skin using multi-polar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to promote skin regeneration. In fact, you might even achieve a slimmer face, as this treatment improves lymphatic drainage by reducing the effects of bloating and swelling. This treatment also works for body contouring, so you might want to consider it if you’re looking to firm up your skin after rapid weight loss.
For: Those who want to get rid of unwanted hair
Anyone who shaves, epilates and waxes regularly can tell you how much of a chore it is, especially when you’re pressed for time. Enter the treatment any lazy girl would love: IPL, or intense pulsed light treatment. IPL technology is widely used in permanent hair reduction procedures. It uses light pulses targeted at the hair follicle to cause the hair to fall out and prevent further growth. Depending on your hair texture and other factors, it might take a few sessions for you to see visible results. What’s different about this treatment at Dore Aesthetics is that the machine they use has a cooling technology to soothe the skin. However, consult the experts to see if it’s right for you, because results vary depending on skin tone.
For: Those who can’t get rid of stubborn fats
Every healthy type of body is beautiful, but we understand that some people might want to shed a few kilos for various reasons, including health. Of course, nothing beats regular exercise and a healthy, balanced diet, but some fats are just too stubborn to get rid of. Instead of going on dangerous fad diets, this non-invasive treatment could be an option. Like its name, the procedure targets the fat cells (without damaging surrounding cells) and freezes them, killing them off. It’s purportedly pain-free (though this depends on your threshold of pain) with zero downtime.
For: Those who wish to have smoother skin
While chemical peels are not new in the market, it remains a popular choice among people who are seeking to “renew” their skin. This treatment involves the use of chemicals to exfoliate your skin and make it peel slightly, revealing new skin, which is usually smoother and clearer. While it’s generally used to eliminate wrinkles, the treatment can also be used to treat some forms of acne. However, it’s not suitable for every skin type, such as sensitive skin or those who are already using products containing alpha-hydroxy acids.
