While getting older may be a gift, the signs of ageing on our skin don’t always feel like one. That’s where aesthetic treatments come in! With a wide variety of aesthetic treatments on the market, it’s hard to know where to go or what to have done. Durban North’s Andrea Botha is a qualified chiropractor and has worked in the health and wellness industry for the past 20 years. She is passionate about holistic wellness and recently became the sole distributor of a new aesthetic device, called Neogen Plasma, in South Africa.
She shares a few tips for preparing for an aesthetic treatment. BEFORE AESTHETIC TREATMENTS: 1. Prepare your skin as best you can. Start by increasing your hydration, use sunblock daily and load up on fresh veggies. Often the physician needs to create a ‘wound’ which your body will then heal to get the effect that you desire. The better building blocks you give your body, the better the result. 2. Take very good before photos of yourself and have a close-up look at your skin from all angles. When your improvements are gradual, as most non-surgical procedures are, you might not notice the end product and this often leads to dissatisfaction despite everyone else telling you how great you look. 3. Follow your physician’s instructions regarding before and after care. The combination of technology and pharmaceuticals have been extensively researched to provide the best possible results to fight the harsh conditions your skin has to endure every day.
GIVE THIS A TRY … Neogen Plasma technology is ideal for men and women of all ages, either to reverse the signs of damage or prevent permanent damage as a preventative measure. It’s great for teenage acne and people with disfiguring scars. “Plasma is the fourth state of matter. Items can be solid, liquids, gasses … or plasma. Examples of plasma include lightning, the Aurora Borealis and fluorescent tube lamps. Nitrogen plasma is a source of thermal energy that is highly conductive and readily permeates skin. Heat released from the plasma has a profound effect at and beneath the skin’s surface, causing thermal disruption to the whole architecture of the skin.”
What makes this technology so unique, Andrea says, is that it leads to continued improvement in the treated area of skin for months after even just one session.
“It treats multiple indications simultaneously, like skin texture, tone, pigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines. It treats the face and body and treatment protocols can be tailored to meet anyone’s needs.”
Sessions are quick and relatively pain-free. Details: www.neogenplasma.co.za, 072 944 7674 (whatsapp)
