Who doesn’t want to emerge from lockdown looking fresh, bright and well-rested? After months spent inside, the prospect of a buzzing social calendar has many thinking about their favourite beauty treatments.
Mood-enhancing and skin-boosting; a trip to our clinic is the best kind of self-care, with a plump and dewy complexion waiting for you at the end.
That’s why we’re rounding up the quickest ways to get perfect skin post-lockdown. We’re talking fast results and no down-time, so you can show off your glow instantly.
1. The Complexion Reboot
If skin is looking dull and congested after spending too much time at home, kickstart a post-lockdown glow-up with a turbocharged Hydrafacial. Celebrities love it – and for good reason. Not only is it tailored to all skin types, but it also delivers instant results with zero post-treatment downtime.
A Hydrafacial features six key steps: lymphatic drainage, deep cleansing, a peel, extractions, a hydration boost and a blast of LED. But the part that gets everyone talking is the oscillating ‘vortex pen’, which works to first suck out impurities, followed by an infusion of cocktails full of nourishing ingredients. You can even add an Oxygen hydration booster (all available at our Hyrda Bar) at the end of your facial, which tackles imbalanced, fatigued complexions. Post-lockdown skin = reset.
2. The Dark Circle Dissolver
Half of British adults have been struggling to sleep since lockdown began, resulting in tired eyes and a deepening of dark circles. While concealers can go far in helping you cheat the effects of a restful night, a subtle injectable will lend long-lasting luminosity to lids and under-eyes.
Aquagold is a go-to. It’s a 24 carat gold microneedling treatment that can be used to treat fine lines around the eye area whilst brightening and hydrating at the same time. Harnessing a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, amino acids, peptides and growth factors, creating the ultimate cocktail. We can also mix in Light Eyes Ultra, which helps to fade post-quarantine dark circles. Because the needles used are finer than a human hair, there’s no swelling or downtime involved.
3. The Jawline Sculptor
Stress has a big impact on the laxity and structure of your skin. Scientists believe that, when you’re anxious, your collagen levels are depleted, resulting in a loss of volume. Meanwhile, tension in the jaw can make your face appear puffy and swollen. Add in quarantine worries, and you’ve got all the makings of a tired, embattled complexion.
The good news is, radiofrequency treatments are designed to quickly soothe stressed skin. They eke out puffiness and stimulate collagen to get your face looking luminous and lifted. At Mallucci London, our most popular areas are the cheekbones and jawlines with the NuEra skin tightening device; a tool we’ve dubbed ‘the non-surgical facelift’ for its youth-boosting effects. In under one hour, contours are defined, wrinkles are softened, and pores boast the kind of glow you could only otherwise get from a month-long spa retreat. We’ve got the ‘before and afters’ to back it up, both in the images below and over on our Instagram Stories.
4. The Everything Laser
Laser facials can be tailored and fine-tuned to all manner of skin concerns, from acne scarring and micropigmentation to wrinkles and fine lines. The machine we use, Cynosure Icon™, ticks off all four just by switching the device applicator. If you’re looking to renew and refresh exhausted pores, this is what you need.
When using it to tackle visible scarring, the laser breaks down any pink and red tones to unveil a more even skin tone – no matter if the scars are old or new. It can also transform micropigmentation into small scabs that peel off in days to reveal unrivalled radiance. Meanwhile, one filter helps to boost collagen and elastin, plumping fine lines and wrinkles over time.
5. The Injectable Moisturiser
Speaking of radiance; Profhilo does exactly that by flooding skin with hydration. This is one of our most popular treatments at Mallucci London and has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid injected just below the surface of the skin, with minimal post-treatment downtime, we would advise having this treatment 7 days before a big event. The benefits are four-fold: it tops up moisture levels, infuses skin with a glow, fills out crepey lines, and enhances your favourite features without altering the natural shape of your face.
For ultimate skin rejuvenation, we recommend combining this treatment with a Hydrafacial. Together, the two create your smoothest, most balanced complexion post-lockdown.
