We have entered the new year, which means it is time for a fresh start and become au courant with the latest in everything, including the skin.
While 2019 saw a roaring rise in aesthetic treatments including the liquid facelift, PRP facials with micro-needling and cool-sculpting, the year 2020 is going to be even more exciting when it comes to skin procedures. And relevant!
The year ended with the national capital shrouded in pollution at dangerous levels. However, pollution is not merely limited to Delhi.
Dr Deepali Bhardwaj, an internationally-trained dermatologist and laser surgeon based in New Delhi, has a solution to the pollution woes that cause havoc to the skin – the anti-pollution facial. It involves infusing oxygen with Vitamin C in its purest form. Due to pollution, all the free radicals stick to the skin, leading to pimples, comedones, whiteheads and eruptions on the face. Vitamin C, an anti-oxidant, helps in reducing photo-ageing and damage caused by pollution and the sun.
Another Contempo skin treatment, according to Dr Deepali, is Facial with Microdermabrasion, wherein diamond brushing is done on the skin for fantastic results, radiance and glow.
Dr Kiran Sethi Lohia, Cosmetic Specialist, Isya Aesthetics, reveals that Aquagold is the dernier cri this year. The procedure, also known as Gold microinfusion, uses micro-needling technology to infuse Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Peptides, Hyaluronic acid and baby botox for a smooth wrinkle-free finish.
“Cryofacials that involve freezing skin and wrinkles for reduced skin sensitivity and anti-ageing,” are also the latest entrant in the skincare procedures this year.
