Medical spas have redefined the way we understand anti-ageing, body contouring and skin-care, with treatments that are virtually painless, non-invasive and require absolutely no downtime. A few dermatologists and clinics offer these services in NCR, where people can come in during lunch hour and leave feeling invigorated, taut and toned.

Sure, episodes of Nip/Tuck might make you believe that these treatments will cost you a fortune and will hurt a little {more like a lot}, we did some research to discover which clinics offer the biggest bang for your buck.

Opt for this when you’ve got a wedding coming up or if you’ve spent too much time basking in the sun. The hydrafacial targets acne, dryness, rosacea, scarring and discolouration, and doesn’t hurt.

Performed by skilled technicians who remove blackheads and whiteheads during the treatment with vacuum cupping to ensure there is no scarring, the Hydrafacial leaves you with radiant, baby-soft skin that is nourished from the inside out.

The best bit? It only takes 30 – 45 minutes.

Price: INR 6,200 per session

Instaglow facial at Lumiere Dermatology

Oxygenating your face makes you look more refreshed, radiant and gives your skin the glow you’ve been looking for. You might want to consult Doctor Lohia and have her address all your skin woes prior to the session, particularly if you’ve got sensitive skin. The Instaglow facial is super effective at mitigating the effects of sun damage, pollution, tan and toxins.

Price: INR 5,700

As far as body contouring goes, the experts say that Exilis helps shrink loose tissue and skin and boosts the production of collagen and elastin in the long term {which help the skin regain suppleness and elasticity}. The treatment is most effective on the forehead, eyebrows, under-eye area, crow’s feet, décolletage, and abdominal regions. We love that this treatment is painless and requires no down-time.

It takes about 20 – 30 minutes on smaller areas, and you need to wait two weeks between sessions. You can expect to see results after about 3 – 4 sessions depending on your problem areas.

Price: On request

ReSCULPT Skin Tightening at Lumiere Dermatology

Regarded by cosmetologists worldwide as one of the quickest and most effective technologies to help toning the face and body, the ReSCULPT treatment uses near-infrared light technology that works on rapid collagen-production and enables skin tightening. The treatment works only deep tissue, so there is no post treatment scarring or burning.

It’s particularly effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite, and you can find a lot of celebrities over the world going for it.

Price: Starting at INR 7,000

#LBBTip: Both clinics require that you come in for consultation and the physicians provide counseling pre and post treatment to ensure that you’re on the right track with diet and exercise, as just getting the treatment won’t really help.

Hair Removal And Under-Eye Treatment

Soprano Ice Laser at Aayna Clinic

As soon as you jump on to the laser bandwagon, you no longer have to worry about scheduling a waxing appointment with the parlour every month. Used by clinics worldwide, the Soprano Laser is fast becoming one of the best laser hair-removal techniques around, as it’s virtually painless, extremely safe and suitable for all skin types.

A lot of us associate laser hair-removal with heat and burning, but you can stop worrying; the Soprano Ice Laser cools the skin while it removes hair right from the follicle. This machine is extremely safe, and therapists have even got some great results with smaller areas like the underarm, facial hair and bikini line.

Under Eye Rescue at Lumiere Dermatology

A lot of us spend most nights squinting in front of a computer screen catching up with the latest episode of our Netflix-obsession, or when we pull an all-nighter to get work done in time for office/college the next day. Sleep deprivation coupled with vitamin deficiencies and stress can wreak havoc on the skin under your eyelids, making you look tired with discolouration and puffy lids.

Luckily, the Under Eye Rescue is a harm-free way to alleviate some of that discomfort and leave you looking fresher and more well-rested. The treatment works to target lymphatic drainage, combat puffiness and dark circles, as well as reducing the darkening or discolouration around the eyes.

Price: INR 8,000 per session

#LBBTip: Please consult your physician/dermatologist before opting for any of these treatments, particularly if you have sensitive skin or any medical concerns. Also, as much as we’d like to admit that these treatments are fantastic, it isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and a good regimen.
