20 Mar Cheat sleep: the best treatments for looking more awake
How can I look more awake? How do I hide bags under my eyes? These are questions we hear often in clinic and we have a few suggestions to help.
At VIVA we offer treatments that help awaken the complexion before makeup is applied so you can look more refreshed all day long.
Dark circles and hollowness under the eyes is extremely common and can appear for a number of reasons. Causes include lifestyle factors like smoking, a hereditary trait or development with age and in many cases this sunken appearance can mean people look tired without feeling tired at all. Our tear trough filler treatment uses Juvederm dermal filler to refresh the under eye area, using a specialised micro-cannula technique.
The procedure itself is quick and fuss free and involves using just two injection points to carefully place dermal filler and plump the skin from underneath. This subtly fills and smooths hollowness, whilst ensuring natural looking results.
Dr. Rupert’s 3D Face Refresh is a VIVA exclusive and uses dermal filler to tweak, fine-tune and refresh- perfect if your complexion is feeling a little lackluster. The treatment is completely bespoke and specifically designed to provide younger patients with a responsible, standardised approach to fillers, addressing areas such as the tear troughs, cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds, chin, lips and jawline.
As with all of our treatments we use the safest, most rigorously tested products from the Juvederm VYCROSS range and take a conservative, holistic approach to achieve natural looking results that mean you still look like you but at your best.
One of the most recent procedures on our treatment list, the AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is a facial with a difference. The device delivers a skin loving cocktail of ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid via twenty tiny 24k gold plated needles across the whole face and neck, working to rejuvenate, plump and hydrate the complexion. The process addresses an array of skin complaints including acne, pigmentation, large pores, texture and tone, dryness, scars, blemishes, wrinkles and loss of volume. What’s more it’s relatively painless and can take as little as 10 minutes to complete.
Day to day life can leave the skin looking and feeling dull and tired. Luckily our chemical peels offer the perfect solution, working to exfoliate and remove the top layers of skin to reveal a fresh, youthful complexion. The VIVA Skin Glow Peel we offer is a non-invasive option used to rebalance the skin’s appearance without the need for injections, using a specialist solution to deeply exfoliate the damaged outer layers and reveal a brand new glow beneath.
