“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. And when you’re beholding yourself through a computer screen each day, it can be easy to become your own worst critic.
That’s what countless people who are being forced to work from home during the pandemic are experiencing. Working from home and using Zoom, Skype, or Microsoft Teams to conduct meetings is the new normal. Unfortunately, video calls are great revealers of cosmetic flaws, lines, wrinkles, sags, hollows, double chins, and uneven pigment.
Luckily, there are a number of non-surgical professional skincare treatments that can reduce the appearance of these problems, rejuvenate the look of your skin, and help you look and feel your best for your next virtual meeting.
Improve Your Skin’s Appearance
The number one thing most people notice when they’re on a video call with their coworkers is how their skin looks. The stress of the pandemic, combined with “maskne” (acne caused by wearing masks frequently), and lack of vitamin D from being indoors most of the time can cause your skin to dry out and your pores to get clogged, leading to a variety of skin conditions. Many people have seen an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and even breakouts. Here are a few effective and affordable skin treatments you can try.
Genesis Laser Facial
The Genesis Laser Facial will make you look 10 years younger! This is a minimally invasive, painless, and effective skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses a pulse of laser to treat the targeted skin and penetrate deeper than intense pulsed light systems (IPL). Genesis Laser Facial treats the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial scarring
Getting regular chemical peels in Toronto can remove impurities and dead skin cells, resulting in a radiant, clean, and even skin tone. This is also the perfect treatment for anyone who has acne scars, wrinkles, and large pores. The Anti-Aging Toronto Clinic offers various strengths of Glycolic Acid peels that can be custom-tailored to your personal skin requirements. Maintaining a good skincare routine at home will help maximize the results of this effective skin treatment.
Enhance Your Lips and Smile
Video calling enhances all of your features so that they’re more prominently displayed. Since you’ll be doing a lot of talking during these virtual meetings, people’s attention will be drawn directly to your facial features—primarily your mouth. If you have naturally thin lips, then you should consider injectable fillers.
Injectable fillers help to discreetly plump up and hydrate your lips, making them look slightly more prominent and voluminous. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, is the base of these injectable fillers. It helps to promote more collagen production, which tends to slow down as you get older, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Add Volume to Your Cheeks
Collagen production in your skin slows down as you age, and this can lead to sagging throughout certain parts of your body and face, especially the cheeks. But there is a way to increase volume and stimulate natural collagen production in your face.
Stylage and Cheek Fillers
Stylage is a dermal facial filler that can enhance your appearance and add volume to sagging cheeks. FDA-approved, Stylage is composed of a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the cheeks to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles, as well as to add fullness. This results in a younger, more vibrant appearance. The procedure is non-invasive, and the results last between six months to a year.
Lift Up Your Eyes and Eyebrows
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyebrows are like window dressings. Both features reveal a great deal about how you’re feeling and what you’re thinking. Tired puffy eyes communicate that you may be experiencing stress or a sense of uneasiness—feelings which are best kept concealed in a professional setting like a virtual meeting.
Dysport and Botox
Like Botox, Dysport is a brand name facial treatment that’s composed of a neuromodulator that’s known as botulin toxin. When injected into the forehead and around the eyes, Dysport relaxes the muscles of the face and actively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, including crow’s feet and worry lines. The effects last three to six months.
Get Rid of Your Double Chin
They say that the camera adds about 10 pounds. Whether or not this is actually true is debatable, but one thing is for sure, depending on how you angle your camera, it might highlight your double chin.
Infini Skin Treatment
Infini skin treatment is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, and completely painless facial rejuvenation. Micro-needles are used to deliver thermal energy deep into the dermis. During the healing process, for which no downtime is required, new collagen production begins and skin elasticity is immediately improved. The results are tighter, firmer, smoother skin and fewer wrinkles or fine lines throughout the face. Skin on the face and neck is tightened almost like it’s been pulled back.
SculpSure targets the fat cells under the chin and destroys them for good. This non-invasive procedure provides effective, yet discreet results with minimal downtime and discomfort. It’s recommended to have two treatment; however, it depends on the needs and goals of each client. Within six to twelve weeks of the treatment, you will notice significant fat reduction.
