If you’re a sucker for a headline about how a Hollywood celeb got her glowing complexion (guilty) then you’ll have scoffed at them denying it came from injectables.
According to an increasing number of starlets – from Jennifer Aniston, Hailey Bieber and Jennifer Lopez – the secret to their ageless skin isn’t filler or invasive procedures, rather futuristic laser or light treatments.
Kim Kardashian, 41, recently revealed her iconic face — the one that a generation of women across the world are spending thousands to recreate — is *cough* free of filler and false eyelashes *cough cough*.
A wrinkle-free Jennifer Lopez, 53, puts her complexion down to wearing SPF every day, slathering herself in olive oil, a healthy lifestyle and treatments such as light therapy.
While most skincare experts I’ve quizzed firmly recommend taking these claims with a grain of salt, there is no doubt alternative skin treatments are gaining traction across the world.
In Cottesloe at Blanc Skin, its CUTERA laser genesis is one of these go-to treatments, particularly as a lunchbreak procedure — taking only 15 minutes.
And don’t worry about returning to work with a blotchy face, unlike other laser treatments or injections, it doesn’t require any down time for most. Though if you’d like to use up your whole lunchbreak and spend more time in their gorgeous waiting area, or strolling down Napoleon Street, go for it.
If you love the idea of being able to improve fine lines, lighten acne scarring, broken vessels or pigmentation or help reduce blemishes and redness in the time it takes to wait for a coffee on the weekend, then this treatment could be worth considering.
Micro pulses of light from the Excel V + laser gently warm the upper layer of skin to increase the production in collagen which in turns results in healthier and clearer skin.
I spent half of the treatment holding my breath waiting for the searing pain to kick in, but it never came. It felt like warm raindrops on my skin, and as someone who is partial to fainting during a blood test, this was a walk in the park.
Results will be different for each face, and Blanc Skin recommend between four and six treatments to see visible improvements.
After the one speedy treatment the fine lines around my eyes felt less noticeable and some scarring slightly lighter. I’ll preface this by noting I too slather myself in oil every day and like JLo don’t eat any sugar or carbs and do 50 hanging ab raises each day.
But I have invested in quality skincare recommended by a cosmetic doctor to assist with my skin concerns. At Blanc Skin four sessions are $1600 and initial consult is $100.
The experience certainly made me see why celebs favour laser genesis to maintain healthy and glowing skin, and curious as to how many years I could knock off after the recommended treatment rounds.
