Oxygen facials and mesotherapy: The hottest anti-ageing trends right now
25th Jan 2021
These new, noninvasive techniques are the most popular anti-ageing treatments right now, says Kerry Hanaphy Clinic. Clients are raving about the skincare results they are seeing.
Most of us are familiar with common anti-ageing treatments like dermal and lip fillers, chemical peels and PRP therapy (AKA the vampire facial recently popularised by Kim Kardashian).
But there are a few, cutting edge treatments that have been flying under the lockdown radar, ones that have seen amazing results.
Kerry Hanaphy Clinic’s newest offer is their oxygen-infused facial, an innovative method that delivers vitamins and botanical ingredients below the skin’s surface without using a needle.
The noninvasive treatment is performed with a handheld oxygen machine that blows the air directly into open pores, penetrating the skin’s layers and carrying the nutrients into the bloodstream.
Before the facial, the specialist examines your skin, deeply cleanses, exfoliates and helps choose the best Intraceuticals serum for your complexion to insert into the machine.
You can choose one the below serums:
- Clarity facial – ideal for acne-prone skin; it removes oil build up and calms inflammation
- Opulence facial – adds a natural glow and evens out skin tone with botanical brighteners and vitamin C
- Rejuvenate facial – created for dry skin; its vitamins and antioxidants lift, tone and hydrate the skin
- Atoxelene facial – targeted, anti-ageing treatment that uses natural amino acids to plump skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Mesotherapy has been championed as a noninvasive alternative to cosmetic surgeries like facelifts.
A biologically active cocktail of revitalising vitamins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid is injected into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin), where it’s absorbed into the bloodstream.
This promotes the production of collagen and elastin, tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.
The treatment only takes about 30 minutes and, after the initial redness and swelling dissipates, it leaves your skin more radiant, hydrated, nourished and firm.
Skincare experts recommend a course of six to eight treatments spaced two weeks apart for optimum results.
