Check out my recommended bundles for all sorts of conditions and skin types.
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.
StimSure is a new technology from a company called Cynosure. They are already known for their lasers—some of which are built for bodysculpting—but this is something a little different. The StimSure machine emits high-intensity electromagnetic pulses to stimulate the muscles to contract. Which they certainly do—an impressive 24,000 times over twenty minutes.
It sounds like a quick and effective way of getting a six-pack, or at least some better muscle definition. Join me as I undergo the technique myself and find out if it’s as clever as it sounds.
