If you watch any reality show featuring Beverly Hills residents—RHOBY springs to mind here—then you may just have come across Fractora and Fraxel lasers for the first time by watching Kyle Richards having one of these cutting-edge treatments to turn back the hands of time. Indeed, beauty treatments in the city of glamour are becoming increasingly high-tech, with lasers, in particular, being used to reach the deeper layers of skin and stimulate the production of the building block of skin—collagen. However, there are many more non-laser-based approaches, some of which have next-to-no-downtime. You may be interested in trying one of the following.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Facials
This treatment is favored by housewives from nearly all the nationwide franchises, owing to its superb results. Used on the face, neck, scalp, and hands, it lends skin a more youthful appearance by using a patient’s own blood. The treatment is far from scary or invasive. It involves obtaining growth factors from the patient’s blood, mixing these factors with vitamins, and reinjecting them into the skin. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated, which improves skin quality, promotes firmness and smoothness, and improves the appearance of fine lines. The treatment is also used to battle alopecia.
Reflexology Foot Spas
When it comes to feet, Beverly Hills beauty fans enjoy a long, relaxed manicure followed by a luxury pedicure session. However, the stress imposed by the past year-and-a-half has prompted many to head to a wellness spa (not just a mani-pedi spot) to enjoy a foot spa incorporating Asian foot care therapies. One therapy that is booming is that of reflexology, which involves applying pressure to specific parts of the foot to release trapped ‘chi’ (energy). This treatment has an array of benefits—including relaxation, better blood circulation, less swelling, reduced pain, and better mood. In addition to this treatment, clients also enjoy a long massage that soothes tiredness and tension.
Beverly Hills belles and gents are also upping their beauty game with oxygen facials, containing pure oxygen and serums that are specifically selected according to the client’s skin needs. Also known as an oxygen lift, the treatment livens up dull skin and gives it a youthful, radiant glow. It is ideal for battling aging and controlling oily skin, since it has an exfoliation component that helps unclog pores. An oxygen facial typically has various stages—including a deep cleansing phase, an enzymatic peel (which removes dead skin cells and gives pores a good clean), and the application of an oxygenation mask that plumps skin up. Finally, a stem cell enhancer feeds kin with Vitamin C, plant-based enzymes, peptides, and plant-based stem cells. This treatment is ideal for when you have a big event like a wedding or gala dinner, and you want to look extra youthful, quickly.
Beverly Hills is a true mecca when it comes to beauty. It is also home to a bevy of influencers, from artists and performers right through to reality TV stars. Just a few treatments they are embracing are platelet-rich plasma facials, reflexology foot treatments, and oxygen facials. All have little or no downtime and can help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.
