The allure of non-invasive, less painful and quick treat ments that have almost zero downtime, is unbeatable during the festive season, especially because of the visibly effective results, according to The Times Of India.
There are a host of treatments available that claim to erase lines, make your skin glow and sculpt your face. We spoke to dermatologist and cosmetologist Dr Jaishree Sharad, dermatologist and laser surgeon Dr Apratim Goel and dermatologist Dr Soma Sarkar to find out about some quick procedures that can help brighten up your festive days…
These facials are done with a skin brightening solution that contains hyaluronic acid, after which a fractional ND-Yag laser is used. And since this is fractional laser, the downtime is zero. This can be done not just on your face and back, but also on your entire body .
Though this has amazing results, there is a downtime of three to four days. It has to be done once a month. The peel has to be kept on the skin for six hours and then the skin slowly peels off over four days. Shallow, superficial scars are gone. You get a glow and there is noticeable skin brightening.
This instawhite treatment is a combination of microdermabrasion, peel and laser lightening. Once the skin a prepped and polished using enzyme solutions and microdermabrasion is done, fractional QS NdYAG laser is sprayed on to the skin in short bursts with a cryo spray to minimise discomfort. Finally, skin is nourished with oxy gen infusion containing vitamins and hyaluronic acid. This improves the tone and texture of your skin, removes tan and reduces fine lines and also reduces the appearance of fine hair.
This procedure involves the reinjection of platelets (PRP) centrifuged and removed from a patient’s own blood back into the pre-numbed skin of the patient. It is done with the help of derma-rollers or micro-injections to achieve overall reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and facial rejuvenation.Initially, the skin looks a little swollen and red at places. However, after two to three days, the skin looks deeply hydrated, radiant, and youthful.
FOR YOUR BACK
One could use the above mentioned treatments on the back, including laser, yellow peel and whitening. Back polishing and microdermabrasion on your back can also give you quick results.

– You need to apply high quality sunscreens, moisturisers, serums and night creams, post the treatment.
-Make sure the procedure is done under the guided supervision of a well-trained dermatologist.
-You need to check whether the clinic customises skin treatments to your individual skin needs.
-Opt for a clinic that encourages client education.
