Looking camera-ready is more challenging than ever. In the age of Instagram Stories and live videos, it is virtually impossible to instantly touch up under-eye dark circles, cover up wrinkles or mask fatigue. If you often ﬁnd unﬂattering photos or videos of yourself on someone else’s social media feed, take heart. Three advanced aesthetics treatments by The Sloane Clinic are said to help you look virtually perfect 24/7, with or without ﬁlters.
If you rarely clock more than ﬁve hours of sleep each day and are running low on fuel, your eyes will be the ﬁrst to give you away. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than elsewhere on the face, so it’s usually the ﬁrst area to show signs of ageing and fatigue.
The Sloane Clinic’s Eye Revival Program is designed to repair fragile collagen and elastin networks in skin. A Laser Toning technology promotes circulation to reduce pufﬁness, while the Revitalift Micro-injection Therapy introduces hyaluronic acid through micro-needles to ﬁll out ﬁne lines and crow’s feet, and brighten dark under-eye circles. The treatment is meant to help you look well-rested, with more radiant skin.
A FACELIFT WITHOUT SURGERY
If you feel you’re visibly older and more tired in photos, sagging skin and jowls may be the cause. As we age, collagen and elastin decrease, allowing gravity to take a toll on our skin.
The Soft Lift Program aims to reverse this by inserting Silhouette Instalift Threads from your jawline to mid-face in order to lift the skin tissue. This can make facial contours look instantly sharper. Besides physically supporting sagging skin, these 100 per cent absorbable threads, made from poly-L-lactic acid, stimulate collagen production for greater ﬁrmness over time. The clinic says you can resume your day-to-day activities right after this minimally invasive treatment; some patients occasionally experience mild bruising or swelling in the treated areas. Depending on the number of threads inserted into the skin, the session may take 40 to 60 minutes, and its effects are said to last 12 to 18 months.
Dull, lifeless skin may be the result of several factors – an accumulation of dead skin cells as well as poor blood circulation and collagen synthesis. This reduces light reﬂection and diffusion, and drains skin of its healthy glow.
The Superstar Facial recharges skin with a cocktail of 100 per cent natural superfood extracts. It gently buffs away dead cells with enzymes found in apples, pumpkins and pineapples, and infuses skin with a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin. Produced by red algae, this is one of the most powerful superfoods in anti-ageing skincare. It is 550 times more potent than vitamin E, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10, and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C. It is believed to help to restore the rosy radiance and suppleness of skin that has become rough, wrinkled and blemished.
