Party season is here! This year might look a little different when it comes to festive celebrating, but that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on that Christmas glitz and glamour. From Zoom drinks to cosy nights in with the family, 2020 is definitely the year to glow extra bright. Here’s our roundup of the best skin-glowing party treatments to try in December at Elegant Clinic.
Skin peels, also known as chemical peels, are a concentrated exfoliating treatment that works to remove dead and dull skin cells, resurface the skin’s texture and reveal brighter, healthier and more radiant skin beneath the surface.
The peel formula is made up of a number of highly beneficial acids, antioxidants and vitamins that stimulate collagen production, hydrate the skin, plump, tighten and reduce fine lines. The formula is applied to the skin to start the ‘peeling’ process, and over the course of a few days post-treatment the skin will start to lightly shed, revealing beautiful, smooth skin beneath.
Yes, downtime must be allowed for chemical peels. If you are planning on getting a peel ahead of an event, leave at least 7-10 days for the peel process to complete and to allow best possible results.
Once the peel process has been completed (this could take anywhere from 5 to 10 days), you will experience a brighter and more radiant complexion. Depending on your skin type, lifestyle and the intensity of your treatment, these results can last for several weeks to months.
We offer 2 different chemical peels at Elegant Clinic. The Perfect Peel costs from £250 with £50 per additional booster. ZO 3 Step Peel starts from £350
A ‘skin booster’ is not a filler, but an injectable skin treatment used to boost radiance, fight signs of ageing and tackle specific skin issues.
Our skin booster treatments Sunekos, Jalupro and Profhilo use hyaluronic acid formulas to hydrate, plump and firm the skin from within. A skin booster is a great way to boost your skin’s beauty with natural looking results that will make your skin appear more youthful, fresh and glowing.
For most skin boosters there is minimal downtime due to the injection process, so you may see slight bumps or bruising– however these will subside within 24 hours.
Results from skin boosters are relatively instant, and can last up to 6 months depending on the booster treatment, your skin condition and lifestyle. For some treatments we would recommend a course of more than one session in order to see optimum results.
Prices vary depending on your chosen skin treatment, how many treatments within the course, and whether you want additional ‘boosters’. Sunekos starts at £200, Jalupro from £175 and Profhilo from £300.
The ultimate festive beauty prep! A luxurious facial that uses real 24-carat gold micro-needles to deliver a cocktail of richly nourishing ingredients for the skin, which can be customised to suit the needs of your complexion.
The Aquagold ‘Fine Touch’ tool is gently stamped across the treatment area, which allows the formula to be deposited in tiny, microscopic placements. An Aquagold facial can be used to boost hydration and radiance in the skin ahead of an event, or tackle specific skin conditions like scarring, fine lines or enlarged pores. The formula used is tailored for you, making it a great all-round choice for any skin type.
There is minimal downtime involved in an Aquagold facial due to the tiny micro-needles used, and you should be party-ready after 48 hours. However, we recommend taking extra care on the day of treatment by avoiding skincare, makeup and sun exposure.
The results of an Aquagold facial are visible between 3 and 7 days after treatment, and are at their optimum after 2 weeks. You may see results last for up to 4 months depending on your skin condition and lifestyle.
A regular Aquagold treatment starts at £350.
Botox, or anti-wrinkle injections, are a targeted injectable treatment that can be used to reverse the signs of ageing, shape the contours of the face and prevent fine lines from forming.
The treatment is used to temporarily paralyse the muscle in the treatment area, preventing it from moving and creasing the skin. This can be used in many areas across the face including the forehead, crows feet, worry lines and around the eyes. Botox can be used as a preventative measure to slow the ageing process, or to reduce and smooth out existing wrinkles.
Botox is a quick procedure that can take as little as 15-30 minutes to administer, and has minimal downtime. This means that it’s easy to fit anti-wrinkle injections into your daily routine, although we advise avoiding exercise for 48 hours post treatment.
Post-treatment you should see results within 2 days, however optimum results will appear after roughly 2 weeks. Results can last from 4-6 months depending on the individual patient’s skin type and lifestyle.
Botox injections are charged per area, starting at £150.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment used to sculpt and voluminise targeted areas of the face including the cheeks, lips, jawline, under-eyes and chin.
Formulated with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers plump and hydrate the skin to add shape. Most commonly this method is used to voluminise the lips, but can also be used to enhance the appearance of cheekbones, sharpen the jaw and make the chin more prominent.
Post-treatment you may experience slight swelling and bruising, which will subside within 1-2 weeks.
Results are immediate, however best results will be seen once swelling has calmed down.
At Elegant we use a few different types of dermal fillers, with Juvéderm starting from £250 and Juvéderm Vycross from £390.
We hope that you have a beautiful and Elegant Christmas, no matter how you’re spending it! If you’re looking to get a treatment ahead of the festive season or for the New Year, do get in touch with us and book a consultation. Shikha x
