1 || Dr. Brandt Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask
An off-white mask, which comes with a wide flat-bristled brush.. All you need to do is follow the specific instructions provided of how to sweep up your face by drawing an inverted triangle on either side of your face.. First reaction would be an immediate cooling effect followed by an all warm feeling once the product sinks in.. The hyaluronic acid is the miracle worker her, boosting firming and filling properties allover cheeks and fine lines around the eyes.. The result, diminished crow’s feet and rounder, more defined cheeks after only three to four days use..
2 || Trilogy Nutrient Plus Firming Serum
This awesome serum brightens and lifts, restoring a luminous complexion. Lightweight and easily absorbed, skin feels revived and firmer, appears radiant, and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed.
Serves as an instant ‘pick-me-up’, and a must for special occasions. Packed with powerful natural actives to gently firm and lift your skin including natural skin brighteners that help to even skin tone so your complexion appears more radiant. Hyaluronic Acid, known as nature’s ‘moisture magnet’, is deeply moisturising and plumps the skin. Apply a small amount to cleansed face, neck and decolletage morning and/or night. Can also be applied as a radiance boost for special occasions.
3 || Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care
Rodan + Fields REDEFINE ACUTE CARE™ smooths expression lines with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology that melts line-defying peptides and Hyaluronic Acid directly into the wrinkle for a more youthful appearance. You can experience visibly noticeable results after ten applications, and you may even see results after the very first use. It’s so simple, you can do it in your sleep.
4 || StriVectin Oxygen Infusion Smoothing Mask
This is an In-office oxygen treatment that has the ability to increase the blood supply to skin, which can lead to better collagen production and in turn fewer lines and wrinkles. The product pumps out like a white cream moisturizer but once you start applying it on clean dry skin it begins to morph into a bubbling foam. Once the foam starts to form, you’re not supposed to rub it in or touch it. Just let it do its thing. And “its thing” is that it feels like a million microscopic-sized minions are running loose all over your face trying to eat up the foam and all of your dead skin cells. It tickles and is quite unnerving at the same time. Leave for about five minutes, and at the end of that time the tickling sensation will stopped. The foam will completely dry up, leaving a whitish-looking mask on the face. Rinse it all off with warm water then apply your usual nighttime moisturizer on top.
5 || Fillerina
Fillerina is a replenishing treatment for at-home use that offers 3 different concentrations of hyaluronic acid that provide a customized answer to the specific needs of face and neck cutaneous tissues. All grades (1, 2, and 3) moisturize, plump, and smoothen the appearance of your skin. Choosing the suitable grade is determined by skin type, not strength or age. Fillerina must be used every day for 14 days, applying up to 2 ml of Replenishing Gel (Fillerina® 1) to the wrinkles, on the most marked microrelief and the areas that require particular plumping up (cheekbones, lips). The Replenishing Gel should be left to work for 10 minutes in order to allow the active principles to “plump up” the application areas.
