The Lovely guide to high-tech beauty treatments


The Lovely guide to high-tech beauty treatments

Undergoing high-tech treatments for the benefit of the way you look and feel need not be overwhelming. Lovely by skin institute makes the process easy.

You’ve read about all the possibilities achievable thanks to the latest appearance and body treatments, but hands up who’s been intimidated by actually stepping into a clinic to ask about undertaking them?

Feeling self-conscious or that you’re not completely clued-up about what you might want is understandable and more common than you might expect, however don’t let that get in the way of getting your best skin ever!

The Lovely by skin institute experts are used to welcoming the tentative and putting everyone who enters their chic clinics at ease, with forthcoming information and time to consider your options.

It also helps that each of their clinics is located in bustling shopping malls you’d likely already visit anyway, so it’s not a big deal to stop by. The idea is that each of their treatments is accessible with little to no downtime, the benefits are easy to understand, the technology world class, and most importantly, treatments are undertaken by professionals.

Because the clinics are part of The Skin Institute group, the team is highly trained, and all of their services are signed off by medical doctors – so you don’t have to worry about a thing.


There can be obvious options quickly guided by your area of interest, say, treating pigmentation or bidding adieu to unwanted hair, however if you want an overall picture on what’s worth focussing on and achievable for you, it’s worth starting with an OBSERV® 520 skin analysis.

The diagnostic tool gives you an in-depth picture of what’s going on beneath the outer layer of your skin, like freckles, pigmentation and age spots which will eventually make their way to the surface as your skin cells turn over (once every 30 days to be precise!) as well as what the future looks like for your ageing process. It might seem confronting but it can also arm you and your Lovely skin specialist with a plan to treat and prevent areas you’d like to work on. You’ll also see some fascinating images showing the skin in six different light modes.


You’ll only hear more about the use of cold and freezing treatments in beauty in 2021, as knowledge around how this technology benefits the skin and body. Lovely is already offering Cooltech fat-freezing reduction treatments. Going hand in hand with the rise in non-surgical solutions for long-term issues, Cooltech is useful for those already in relatively good shape but wanting to reduce stubborn pockets of fat from tummy, pesky muffin-top, love handles, back fat, under-arms, thighs, buttocks, and even chin.

The procedure uses scientifically proven cryolipolysis technology, which has been validated in clinical trials. It works on the principles that fat cells and tissue are significantly more vulnerable to temperature change than other types of body tissue. Once frozen, your body takes around three months to eliminate the cells, and most people need between one and three treatments.


The flipside of the coin is another advanced treatment that uses heat rather than cooling to tighten and contour the skin. More specifically, Ulfit, sometimes known as the lunchtime facelift, involves a hand- held ultrasound device being passed over the treatment area while transmitting high-intensity, focussed ultrasound energy to generate a heat point of up to 75°C, deep in the skin’s layers. This creates localised tissue damage which kickstarts the body’s healing process, stimulating collagen regeneration.

Ulfit can tighten and lift areas such as forehead, eye area, cheeks, jowls, wrinkles, chin and décolletage. For Ulfit skin tightening on the face, you’ll most likely need two treatments three months apart, then one treatment every 12-18 months.


There are numerous other ‘walk-in, walk-out, no downtime’ treatments available like laser hair removal, anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and laser rejuvenation. Book in for a free consultation for any of Lovely’s treatments. With all options, prices and locations listed at lovelybyskin. you’ll have no trouble making the decision to pay a visit!
