The beauty world has many weird and wonderful things on offer. If you’re looking for something a bit new, a bit strange or a tiny bit dangerous (hey, no risk, no reward right?) then there are plenty of options available in Australia’s biggest city. Read on to find out about some of the most unique and interesting facial treatments in Sydney and what you can expect from them.
Do yoga for your face
Haven’t you heard? Yoga isn’t just for your body anymore, there’s downward dog for your face now too. Yoga for your skin is the new in thing – it’s even popular with celebrities like Meghan Markle. Skin yoga promises anti-ageing benefits through a series of skin exercises which work to tone and lift the face. If done regularly the face exercises can help to prevent and reverse signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging.
Not everyone agrees on it’s effectiveness, with some dermatologists feeling that skin yoga most likely does very little for the face, or actually causes more wrinkles by stretching out the face but anecdotal evidence from it’s proponents seems to suggest that it’s worth a try.
This facial treatment is new in Sydney and beginning to pop up all in beauty salon’s everywhere, look at for it at your next appointment.
Freeze your face with cryotherapy
You’ve probably heard of cryotherapy – Walt Disney is most often associated with it, he was famously known to have arranged to cryogenically freeze himself after his death. This was later debunked as an urban legend.
The thought behind cryogenic freezing is that is will suspend the bodies and the brains of it subjects, who believe that science will later catch up and be capable of reviving them. The idea is similar with the modern facial treatments in Sydney, but a little bit less morbid.
Cryotherapy involves exposing the face to extremely cold vapours, sometimes between -100°C and –300°C. One of the touted benefits of cryotherapy is that it can help to slow down signs of aging. There are a range of other possible benefits on offer, the extremely cold temperatures can in theory help to remove dead skin cells, treat skin conditions, and promote the growth of healthy, new skin.
This therapy is relatively new, and there is little evidence to back up t’s benefits claims as of yet but the results can be impressive and it is worth it to try this facial treatment in Sydney.
Boost your skin with skin smoothing injections
If you’re not squeamish about needles, skin boosters are a great new facial treatment in Sydney to try. Skin boosters involve multiple injections of Hyaluronic acid into the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the body. It is common around your eyes and joints. As a result of it being naturally occurring, there is no risk of an allergic reaction and the product is eventually broken down by the body over times (usually within 6 months).
Skin boosters are a great way to refresh your look and a subtle way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles or crepey skin. Hyaluronic acid is hydrating to the skin and absorbs water, so the final result will be apparent about 4 weeks post injection.
As far as facial treatments in Sydney go, this is a very effective one but for some people might be a bit invasive.
So there you have it! If you’re looking for a new facial treatment in Sydney then now might be the time to try out some of the options listed above.
