DO YOU WANT TO FIND OUT
WHICH SKINCARE AND TWEAKMENTS REALLY WORK?
Hello. I’m Alice Hart-Davis and I’ve been researching the best skincare and tweakments for 20 years. As a journalist, I’ve written for all the top newspapers and magazines, and picked up a few awards along the way.
I’ve set up this site so you can discover the active skincare and tweakments that might work best for you.
Are you looking for a skincare regime that is right for your skin type or condition? Maybe you have very dry or oily skin, or want a solution to a specific issue like wrinkles or acne? If you don’t know your way around cosmeceutical skincare or are buying for someone else you could probably do with a little help to get you started and this is where I come in. Check out my recommended bundles for all sorts of conditions and skin types.
Can a serum genuinely enhance energy-based tweakments that use ultrasound or radiofrequency, to make them up to 18 times more effective? According to Dr Rita Rakus and The Endor Technologies®, the answer is ‘Yes,’ and the product is called Elenzia Hyalgen™. For this week’s Tweak of the Week, I went to visit Dr Rakus, one of the longest-standing and most respected aesthetic doctors in the UK with an international and celebrity client base. Dr Rakus is well known for the impressive results she achieves using radiofrequency and ultrasound and for being open to trying new technologies. When I heard that she was getting supercharged results with a new, high-tech serum, I had to go and ask her all about it.
For this week’s Tweak of the Week, I went to Neville’s in Belgravia London, to visit medically-trained facialist Renee Lapino and try out Secret RF, a novel fractional radiofrequency micro-needling treatment from Cutera. Designed to revitalise, refresh, tighten and lift the skin and address the common signs of ageing, the treatment uses micro-needles to allow the practitioner to deliver energy at various depths, so it can be tailored to each individual’s needs. By combining the two technologies – RF and micro-needling – Secret RF gives a double whammy when it comes boosting collagen and elastin. And it’s suitable for all skin types. I wanted to find out how effective it was and if we could really put that old adage of “no pain, no gain” to rest.
This week, I went to the Define Clinic to talk with Dr Benji Dhillon about sculpting the face using a particular brand of filler called Teoxane. He knows this area inside-out and we had a fascinating conversation about fillers and the “ideal” face shape. Then I got to watch him work on a male patient who was looking to recover some of the facial structure he had noticed fall away over the years.
