As we age, looking into body and facial treatments beyond the necessary routine, is a must. Now, with winter already here, it is the perfect time to check into the longer procedures that will prep you best for another glamorous event season, awaiting just behind the curve.

Dry skin removal, which has built up over the last few months, is performed using dedicated skin peeling products for different body parts. A full treatment cycle lasts between 6 to 8 weeks and should be completed in order to get optimal results and allow your body complimentary hydration time before full exposure to the sun’s rays.

Waxing should also continue throughout winter since it is evident that fluent repetition leads to a reduction of up to 50% in hair growth, with the extra benefit of remaining hair becoming finer and easier to remove.

In addition to these, the most significant change that has accrued in the non-surgical aesthetic course is the Dermapen.

Basically, a Dermapen is a small device that resembles a pen and is generally used for microneedling on people with skin issues. Microneedling is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health. The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for pregnant women.

The spread of Dermapen usage over the last couple of years has unveiled an unplanned up-side. It is found that in addition to providing radiant skin, the Dermapen sprouts elasticity and encourages collagen build up in older skin which leads to a significant reduction in facial expression lines. A manmade fountain of youth.

A single treatment will show improvement in a week or two but it is well advised to plan a full series in order to get long lasting results.

These, and a large plethora of hair and beauty treatments are offered by Five on Main, located at De Waterkant, in the pumping heart of Cape Town.
