The Traveling Stylista

Favourite dermatologist treatments?

When I moved to the Middle East in 2010 I started to read about a treatment called Omnilux – ( ) which is a non-invasive LED light treatment for the treatment of a wide range of dermatological conditions including, acne, photodamage, non-melanoma skin cancers, skin rejuvenation, vitiligo, and post-surgical wound healing. You basically sit under a red (or blue for acne) light for 20 mins & that’s it. No heat, no pain, nothing. I thought it sounded too good to be true till I tried it. My skin is brighter, is less red, has smaller pores, is firmer, its just overall better. Dermatologists recommend a course of 6-8 treatments over a 4-6 week period. Many people I know use it before special occasions & it’s perfect for brides to be, I’m lucky enough to live in Asia (where it’s cheap!) & have one session per week. I also have one session of Microdermabrasion deep cleaning per month & an RF (radio frequency) facial for special events, for firming, which is great, albeit temporary.

I’m a frowner – I frown when I read, when I concentrate, I squint in my sleep, when I’m watching TV & right now typing this on my laptop my face is scrunched, so to stop me looking constantly angry I botox 1-2 times per year. It’s not going to make you look younger; it’s going to make you look fresher. I love my dermatologist.Type your paragraph here.
