The beauty of right now!
When it comes to beauty…let’s face it, patience is usually not on our side. We want to see the result quickly and most preferably, right away. Of course, we understand that it does take time for certain products and/or treatments to work, sometimes weeks or often months. But what about now? Does anything improve the skin instantly?
The answer is yes, there are treatments that can fulfill the request: “I want my skin to look good NOW!” My personal favorite is Illuminize Peel®, which is often called the “Party Peel” or “Red Carpet Peel”. What I like most, is the instant skin brightening effect that this very superficial Peel creates in a matter of minutes. Illuminize peel contains mild fruit acids: (mandelic and malic) that produce exfoliation without visible peeling, while leaving the skin bright and tight. Recently, I performed an Illuminize peel procedure on a patient and witnessed predictable, yet impressive results. I took a photograph of the patient before the peel and then again just a few minutes after the peel. The difference in skin clarity and brightness was so distinct. It literally looked as if the final photograph had been altered in Adobe Photoshop.
Another instant skin-care “secret” is a facial masque. The use of masques dates to ancient times and it is believed that earlier civilizations discovered that some types of clay, mud and herbs had healing powers. When applied, these natural substances left the skin softer, smoother and aided in the healing of blemishes and wounds. Today, facial masks are formulated with a variety of natural herbal extracts and a new generation of cosmetic ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Masques offer rapid and visible results, with improvements that are noticeable after only one ten-minute treatment.
Skin plumpers, or wrinkles erasers, are another “instant gratification” treatment that are available at most practices. They contain dehydrated hyaluronic acid filling spheres, which after penetrating into skin creases, re-hydrate and immediately plumping the skin. The instantaneous effect of filling spheres combined with the rejuvenating strength of TNS®, produce not only immediate, but also long-term anti-aging benefits with continued use. (Examples: TNS Lip Plump System™, TNS Line Refine®)
Regardless of how temporary the effect of some “instant results treatments” are, when you want your face to look flawless and polished for that special occasion, these treatments can come to the rescue.
