When it comes to looking our best, Listers, having a glowing, youthful complexion that’s healthy, firm and super-smooth is placed right at the top of our beauty lust list. While we’d love to have that ‘just back from a health retreat’ glow 24/7, the hurdles of modern life (air conditioning, hangovers, last night’s ice cream binge…) mean it’s not always that easy. So, keen to know about our shortcuts to plump, bright, youthful skin without injectibles? Read on for a list Melbourne’s best facials that tackle our three key skin peeves.
For Dehydrated Skin & Visible Pores…Book a HydraFacial
HydraFacials are the ultimate treatment for an all-round plumping lift, especially if your skin is clogged from day-to-day grime and needs some nutrient-rich attention. The technique simultaneously exfoliates dead skin cells (brightening, tick!), extracts grime from pores to make them less visible (tick!), and nourishes the skin (tick!). The HydraFacial isn’t as irritating as other cleansing and exfoliating facials either, making it the best facial in Melbourne if you need a treatment that will leave your skin looking instantly plumper, healthier and more glowing—aka younger!
For Dull Skin & Uneven Tone…Get a Lactic Peel
Lactic peels are the crème de la crème of skin brightening treatments—their method of exfoliation removes lifeless, dull skin without tearing the skin, leaving your complexion fresh, smooth and bright. With a focus on skin rejuvenation, lactic peels are our go-to facial in Melbourne for peeling back the years, too—the perfect solution to getting your youthful complexion back.
Make sure you go with the professionals though, folks—it’s a rare occurence but there are still salons out there using ingredients that can damage the skin. Give Avenue Advanced Skin Care a call for a discussion about which lactic peel is right for you, and get ready for skin that’s polished and plump (in a good way).
For Sagging Skin & A Collagen Boost…Go for Deep IR Skin Tightening
‘Sag’ is up there with ‘moist’ (eeuurgh!) on our list of English words that should’ve never been invented. It’s DEFINITELY not something we want associated with our skin, which makes the deep IR skin tightening treatment at Avenue Advanced Skin Care our saviour! If you are suffering from a complexion that’s beginning to show signs of ageing and the odd wrinkle, this infra-red light treatment is a great way to encourage your skin to boost its own collagen production, making for firm, plump and wrinkle-free results. Pair this with a cleansing and exfoliating treatment for one of the best facials in Melbourne when it comes to combatting the effects of age and gravity.
