Focussed beams of light are good for more than just driving the cat insane, flash-drying paper mâché and settling the argument with your room-mate about exactly where the cheese should be kept. A well-aimed burst of focussed light to the face, while it sounds quite scary, can also rid you of wrinkles, under-eye luggage and the redness not associated with embarrassment – among other things. Don’t deny your dermis the chance to shine like a smooth and healthy star and get a HIPL facial skin rejuvenation treatment at The Nail and Beauty House for R250.
Though the HIPL (High Intensity Pulsed Light) treatment is referred to as laser treatment, it would be like comparing Picasso to your nephew’s ketchup artwork. Using rapidly repeated bursts of light, combined with deeper dermis-penetration and lower temperatures, HIPL treatments are more effective, and less harmful than some other IPL or laser treatments.
Sometimes, looking in the mirror in the morning can make you feel like the ‘before’ part of a ‘before and after’ photo; whether it’s dark, uneven pigmentation that leaves you comparing yourself to a Dalmatian, or fine wrinkles that leave you feeling like a sheet left too long in the linen cupboard. The highly trained and professional therapists at the tranquil Wierda Park salon have over seventeen years of experience getting people close-up ready and making them feel like they deserve to be on the cover of a glossy magazine instead of an ad for anti-aging treatments.
Sun damage, the pockmarks of a high school skin-condition or just the fine lines caused by your body’s finicky time-piece, the ANL approved HIPL treatment can put a stop to any dermis-difficulties and leave you feeling fresher than a still-warm croissant. The fancy sounding non ablative treatment is just a treatment that won’t damage your skin like some others, without using fruit acid or little particles of diamond or sea-sand. Using a combination of repairing and healing pulses of light to give the skin a new lease on life, the treatment can last anywhere between thirty to forty minutes. Better than the quick treatment time is the fact that there is practically no downtime afterwards and no give-away signs that you’ve been for a facial, like that shiny redness you sometimes see on reality-makeover shows.
Instead of smooshing your face into the office copier and hoping that pulsing light will do your skin some good, leave your skin woes in the more than capable hands of the therapists at The Nail and Beauty House and show the world what a younger you looks like.
Light-show Did-you-know: Guests at the wedding of the King and Queen of Jelly-Land in Northern Columbia were the first to discover the benefits of laser light on their skin. When a meteor shower threatened to disrupt the happy affair, the king ordered that projectiles be shot out of the sky with Laserquest rifles. Days later, the guests started reporting that after being exposed to so much laser light, their skin felt much smoother.
