The beauty industry is bustling and every day more and more potential treatments are being brought to the plate of the marketplace. No matter what your issue, problem, condition, or general unease when it comes to your physical appearance, it seems that there is something out there that you can do to rectify, improve or change it. While it’s great to feel comfortable in your own skin as you are, we all have our insecurities. Some of these options can simply help us on our journey to feeling comfortable in our own bodies and achieving the look and aesthetic that we want for ourselves. So, here are a few of our favorite alternative beauty treatments that reach out much further than the basic realm of hair, nails, and makeup.
More emphasis is being placed on eyebrows than ever before when it comes to the beauty industry. While previous trends from years gone by have focused on removing the majority of our brows, nowadays thick brows are in. Perhaps we have high-end fashion models such as Cara Delevingne to thank for that. This is great news for those of us with naturally dark and bushy brows. But if you happen to have lighter hair or thinner brows, you may find yourself spending more time in the mornings filling in your brows than focusing on any other part of your routine. There are seemingly endless options of brow pencils, brow powders, and brow pomades out there to choose from. But none of them really give you the realistic look of natural thick, dark hair. Then there’s tinting, but again, you can only tint hair that is there in the first place. But don’t despair. There’s a new option out there that more and more people are deciding to try out themselves: microblading. Eyebrow microblading, believe it or not, is a type of tattoo artistry. But unlike usual tattoos, it is only semi-permanent and gives us a much more impressive final result than simply tattooing the shape of a brow in place. The process involves manual implantation of pigment beneath your skin with a handheld tool rather than a machine. Hair like strokes are used to mimic the texture of natural brows. It’s truly effective and will leave you with the most natural looking, neat and tidy results possible.
Once you’ve tried and tested what feels like one diet too many without achieving your desired results, you may start to despair. Most of us have at least one problem area, where we find that fat stores up and is almost impossible to move. For some of us, this area will be our stomachs, for others, it may be our arms, thighs, hips, or bum. Wherever it is, however, there is a way to remove it. An option that is catching a lot of attention right now is fat freezing. But don’t worry, the actual procedure won’t leave you feeling cold! This nonsurgical procedure is a much preferable and less invasive method of fat removal. This is ideal, as going under the knife can have all sorts of undesired after effects. Fat freezing, on the other hand, doesn’t leave scars and doesn’t expose you to the kinds of infection that are always a risk when you undergo significant surgery. The procedure involves the use of fat freezing technology, which cools fat cells to temperatures that trigger their natural death. The cells begin to shrink, then die, and your body naturally metabolizes the cells that are no longer of any use and eliminates them. So does it work? This surely sounds too good to be true. However, if you take a look at the Dore Aesthetic page, you’ll be able to see various before and after shots of others who have opted for this kind of treatment. The positive long-lasting effects are evident.
We all sweat. It’s a natural part of being human. However, some of us tend to sweat more than others, and this can quickly become something that we grow self-conscious of. This condition is called hyperhidrosis and can be rather difficult to treat. While stronger antiperspirants can be prescribed by doctors, it requires daily use before bed and to be washed off in the morning. This can be time consuming and inconvenient. But the good news is there are other options available out there. Botox can actually be used to prevent underarm sweating. Bizarre, we know. But it turns out one of the nation’s favorite forms of anti-aging treatment is also FDA approved for preventing wet underarms. So how does it work? Well, the botox injections in your underarms simply block your nerves from reaching your sweat glands. A vial of fifty units for each armpit is usually the standard dose required. The pain of the procedure is minimised with topical numbing cream, and the impressive results are generally worth the few moments of discomfort. One worry that people considering this treatment have is that the sweat which would usually come from their armpits will suddenly start coming from other parts of the body. However, in the majority of cases, this worry is needless. It is unlikely that you will have other forms of “compensatory” swearing elsewhere.
Laser Hair Removal
It’s absolutely fine to leave your body hair as it grows. However, if you do prefer a hairless look and have thick, dark, or fast-growing hair, you may find that you spend more and more time shaving, waxing, or using some other form of hair removal to keep on top of things. Regular use of hair removal can not only prove costly and time-consuming, but it can also leave you with rashes, irritated skin, or ingrown hairs. If this all sounds familiar, you may be glad to know that there’s a more permanent alternative out there. Laser hair removal is by no means anything new. But the increased interest in the procedure and demand for it around the nation has resulted in more and more clinics offering it and the price becoming increasingly affordable for the standard consumer. While laser hair removal may not be exactly cheap, it should be considered an investment. After all, the results are mostly permanent and think of all the time and expenditure you’ll save. No more razors or head replacements. No more epilators. No more wax. No more threading. Whatever it is that you usually use, you won’t have to invest in it ever again. So, if you’re considering this as an option, book in for a consultation with a specialist at a laser hair removal clinic. They will be able to assess your skin type and hair type to determine whether laser removal will be effective and safe for you as an individual. They will then be able to book you in for a few sessions to get the process in motion. Before you know it, you’ll be silky smooth and hair free.
We all have our preferred cleansing routine. Especially when it comes to our faces. It’s probably taken a while to root out the perfect face wash, the idea toner, and an all-round brilliant moisturizer. But every now and then, it may be a good idea to book in for a professional facial. This process can help you to preserve your youthful looks, deep cleanse your skin, or merely serve as an excuse to lie back, relax and be pampered for a while every now then. But what actually is a facial? Well, a facial consists of a multi-step treatment plan that cleanses, exfoliates, nourishes and prepares your skin for the outside world. It promotes a well-cared-for, hydrated complexion that looks youthful, bright and fresh on even the greyest of days. Is it necessary? Well, while it may not be an absolute essential for survival (what beauty treatment is?), but it can help to rid your face of some of the less desirable effects of exposure to pollution and other everyday irritants and bits of dirt that we are constantly exposed to. The process will generally start with a consultation, where a skin professional will discuss your usual skin condition. It’s good to have an idea of your skin type before you go. You may be oily, dry, or combination – these are the most common skin types. An in-depth cleanse will then begin while you lie back with your eyes closed, enjoying massaging motions and the wonderful aroma of different specialist products.
Remember that your personal appearance is entirely down to your own personal choice. Never feel pressured to make any changes to how you look by another person, no matter who they might be. However, if there are certain changes that you do want to make to your own aesthetic, then that’s your own choice too! These are just a few alternative beauty treatments and procedures that you might like to consider. There’s so much more out there! So, it’s worth doing your research before deciding which areas to tackle. Be certain before making any drastic decisions and spend your money wisely, especially if the changes made are going to be permanent.
