It’s time to take a well-deserved break and celebrate our achievements and friendships. After all, 2017 has been quite a year. Numerologists will explain that it is a “One” year, typically marked by changes and fresh starts as well as all the challenges these bring. And that has meant furrowed brows and sleepless nights for many of us, but also plenty to smile about. In other words, 2017 has brought on more fine lines and a tired appearance than we’d like. While we can embrace our wrinkles and droopy bits in the name of acquiring character, it’s nice to know we have the option to take years off our face with today’s skin rejuvenating technologies.
There are a whole slew of non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatments available today, which can be more than a tad confusing. It definitely helps when you come across a doctor who doesn’t try to sell you the most expensive product on the menu but listens to what you wish to achieve and then tells you exactly what level of skin rejuvenating that you require. No overkill. No wastage.
Dr Ram Nath at The Wellness Clinic Aesthetics recommends the Enlighten Gold treatment for skin that is showing early signs of ageing. It features the revolutionary Cutera Enlighten laser system, which is the first and only laser platform in the world featuring dual wavelength (532nm/1064nm) and both picosecond and nanosecond pulse durations, making it the most advanced picosecond platform currently available. What it does is deliver energy from the laser beam into the skin in a much shorter time than conventional lasers, making it faster, safer and better tolerated even by patients with sensitive skin.
For those in their 30s and 40s, the Enlighten Gold treatment is ideal for skin rejuvenating, delivering better results in a shorter time than conventional lasers. It gently improves the appearance of dull or discoloured skin, unwanted freckles, age spots and sun spots, leaving the skin looking brighter and more radiant, with a more even tone. It also helps in pore reduction and the treatment of acne scars.
The Enlighten Gold skin rejuvenating treatment is suitable for all skin types, even darker skin tones that are prone to heat burns from some laser treatments. It takes about half an hour, so you can easily schedule an appointment during your lunch hour. There is no downtime involved, with only some mild redness occurring temporarily after the treatment.
A series of two to three treatments ($650 per treatment) is usually recommended to achieve optimal results, although our trial subject, aged 54, needed only one. It has been three months since the treatment and the results have held out beautifully – lines are diminished, skin is lifted and more even toned, and pores appear finer, delivering an overall youthful and radiant appearance. She hasn’t needed any additional maintenance treatment to date when that is an option to maintain results.
And so for the upcoming year-end parties, you certainly have enough time to show up looking fabulous with the Enlighten Gold skin rejuvenating treatment. It truly says you’re ready for a new adventure in 2018.
