For the most part, the beauty industry relies on novelty to draw people in. There are a ton of new products and treatments coming out all the time, and it can be a little difficult to wade through all the trends and really find the ones that are worth your time. Whether it’s a celebrity touting something they were sponsored to do, or aggressive advertising thrust at you from all sides, it’s a challenge to find someone you can trust and who can tell you what you should try. But luckily, you’ve got us. We’re here to give you our top picks and let you know which beauty treatments should definitely be on your radar.
From Daniel Craig to Jessica Alba, cryotherapy is something a lot of celebrities swear by – but is it worth it? Well, people who’ve tried it say it’s one of the most exhilarating experiences they’ve ever had. It involves basically standing in a cold tank where the temperature drops to about -90 °C for 2-4 minutes. It sounds insane and completely unmanageable, but since the cold is created by electrical technology rather than the environment itself, it actually feels pretty great. The benefits of cryotherapy involve better circulation in your body, a decrease in inflammations, and even better collagen production for a short while. Another cool thing? They say that standing in the cryo tank can actually burn about 600 calories because your body starts using up energy from fat to try and stay warm, so you could see some potential weight loss benefits.
Everyone in the AU still seems to be talking about body contouring; the procedure that can be of real help to people who are trying to lose those last few stubborn pounds or shape a specific part of their body. During this non-surgical treatment that combines electro and cryo therapy your fat gets frozen and then it’s flushed by your body naturally, and you’re left looking and feeling slimmer. If you choose to undergo body contouring in Sydney, you can even create a tailored treatment plan to get rid of your ‘muffin tops’ or other problem areas that are giving you trouble.
One of the most popular beauty trends in Australia, Invisalign combines aesthetics and dentistry to give you beautiful teeth. It’s basically a set of invisible braces that you can take off when you need to eat, but are otherwise worn around 22 hours a day. They’re transparent so no one will know you have them on, and Aussies absolutely love it. Going to a dental clinic for Invisalign is pretty popular, and if you’re insecure about crooked teeth, then this is something that can give you that perfect smile. Feel free to chat with your dentist if you long to have a shiny row of pearly whites that you can show off.
This incredibly trendy facial is a pretty spectacular thing to try if you want to rejuvenate your face and make your skin plump and glowy. HydraFacial uses a medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that cleanses, exfoliates, and then nourishes the skin by infusing it with hydrating substances, and it’s good for pretty much any skin type. It’s done in about 30 minutes so it’s one of those treatments that you can basically finish during your lunch break and then get back to business as usual.
Right after microblading, the hottest new semi-permanent tattoo trend is lash enhancement. However, rather than giving you longer lashes, a thin, subtle line is inked right along your lashline. This gives them a fuller, more voluminous look, and the result actually looks quite natural. This tattoo requires touch-ups every 4-6 weeks, but once you’re done with those, it can last for around 3 years.
To perform this beauty treatment, an injection is inserted into the mesoderm (the outer layer of our skin), and we get a cocktail of vitamins that are there to soften and brighten our complexion. Different clinics offer different vitamins and extracts, but in general this can be used to reduce inflammations, smooth out fine lines, or simply plump the skin and make it more radiant. It’s definitely worth trying for people who feel their complexion has been looking a little dull and want to perk it up.
All these cool beauty treatments are there for you. You can indulge in them and use them to feel great in your own skin, so don’t be afraid to book a few treatments and rejuvenate yourself.
