Your Questions About LVL Lash Lift Answered!

Standing for Length, Volume and Lift, LVL lashes are gaining more and more popularity for the transformative effect they can have on your eyelashes. Without the need for heat or glue like traditional eyelash extensions, LVL lash lifts offer extraordinary impact with minimal maintenance. Read on to have your questions about LVL lash lift answered!

What is a LVL lash lift?

Combining an eyelash perm and an eyelash tint, the LVL treatment simply enhances what you already have. It covers your eyelashes in a special serum that straightens them from the root, giving your lashes a super curled look. They are then tinted to make them look thicker and darker. 

How long does it take?

The treatment typically lasts for 45 minutes to an hour and most of that time is spent waiting for serums and dyes to develop. Don’t be afraid to take a sneaky nap! Your lashes should last for 6 – 8 weeks before needing a top-up. 

How do I take care of them?

Don’t get the area wet for 48 hours after application, so make sure you wash your hair beforehand. You also cannot apply mascara during this time. Beyond this, just take care not to tug on the lashes when removing makeup. If you follow these steps your lashes should last the full 6 – 8 weeks. 

How much do they cost?

Costing only AED 350 at Ivory Aesthetics, they are well worth the initial investment. Save time on your daily makeup routine or if you want to ramp up your everyday look, add a dash of mascara and a bold stroke of eyeliner. This will leave your eyes looking beautifully defined.

The Top 5 Benefits of a Collagen Treatment For Dull & Aging Skin

Collagen is the building block of our muscles, skin and connective tissue but the amount of collagen in our bodies declines as we get older. However, something as simple as a collagen facial can give your skin the boost of collagen that it needs to stay looking youthful and radiant. 

Here are the Top 5 benefits of a collagen treatment for dull and ageing skin:

  1. It can rewind the years

Collagen is the secret to youth and an absence of the protein can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.  A collagen treatment can reduce signs of skin ageing making you look years younger. Don’t just take our word for it, many scientific studies have shown collagen to be a crucial part of having smooth and youthful skin.

  1. Boost the radiance of your complexion

Dull skin can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, or an improper diet. However, a collagen treatment penetrates to the deepest layers of the skin so your skin can glow even weeks after the treatment. 

  1. Look forward to firmer looking skin

Unfortunately, sagging skin is a natural part of the ageing process as our collagen levels begin to deplete. However, a collagen treatment could save the day, as a higher concentration of the protein can make skin look and feel firmer.

  1. Ideal for problem skin

Acne and eczema are common skin conditions that can really knock your confidence. However, studies have shown that collagen is great at restoring the skin’s moisture and balancing the naturally occurring oils on the surface, making it a great treatment for problematic skin. 

  1. No need for surgery

With a collagen treatment, you don’t have to go under the knife in order to get great skin; our unique facials stimulate the natural production of collagen so you can leave the clinic looking fresh-faced without surgery. Best of all, collagen treatment is a relaxing experience that doesn’t require painful needles or incisions.

Best acne treatment to prevent breakouts during the summer

When the summertime comes around, the last thing any of us wants is to have a sudden acne breakout. We want to be looking and feeling our best, and anyone prone to acne will be worrying about spots appearing as the weather warms up. Fortunately, there are some very effective treatments available to help, and Ivory Aesthetics want to tell you about the most potent combination to keep you looking fresh-faced through the summer months!

The oxygen facial

The first is the oxygen facial, which offers a ‘Clarity’ focused treatment that calms existing acne and prepares your skin to resist another breakout. The ‘Clarity’ infusion of specially blended ingredients is sprayed on to your skin, then the therapist will carefully administer a blast of oxygen all over the face with a wand that helps enhance the absorption of the serum into your skin. Finally, you get topical creams applied on top to maximise the effect.

This procedure has been shown to produce fantastic results for the ongoing battle with acne, and could help you head into the summer worry-free. For best results, however, it can be combined with another treatment for the most powerful effect possible.

LED therapy

Combine it with LED therapy – trust us! This treatment is tailor-made to blitz stubborn breakouts by exposing the acne-causing bacteria to light from red or blue LEDs, effectively killing them while doing zero harm to your skin. The light stimulates your skin’s natural healing mechanisms to combat the bacteria beneath the skin’s surface.

During treatment, our aesthetician will focus on existing blemishes and areas that are most prone to acne. The process will be an intensive assault on any Propionibacterium (that’s acne-causing bacteria) present in the skin, helping minimise the risk of an unwanted breakout in the summer.

A powerful combination

When these two treatments are used together, you put your face through a holistic treatment that targets the heart of the issue and leaves your skin feeling cleansed and refreshed! This combination is your most powerful weapon in the fight against acne, because it removes the bacteria and then equips the skin with the nutrients it needs to stop them from quickly returning.

Why Dermaplaning should definitely be the next facial treatment you try!

If you do regular facial treatments, you have probably heard of Dermaplaning. There are many celebs who swear by it, and beauty magazines that promote it, but do you really know what it is? If you’ve been scared off by scary images of scalpels, let us help eliminate any misconceptions you might have.

What it is

Dermaplaning is a non-surgical treatment that involves gently grazing the skin’s surface with a sterile blade, removing fine hairs and dead skin cells. After the treatment, you are left with very smooth, fuzz-free skin. By clearing the skin, Dermaplaning allows peels, serums & skin care products to actually sink into the skin, rather than sitting on the skin’s surface.

As such, it can be very effective when used in combination with another gentle facial treatments. Plus, our Dermaplaning treatment includes a tailor-made facial for even better results!

The benefits

In addition to helping skin care products penetrate better, there are other benefits to Dermaplaning. The removal of dead skin cells facilitates deep exfoliation to improve healing. The skin is left looking and feeling healthy and radiant. It also helps to correct mild textural abnormalities, bringing about healthy cell renewal and refreshing the skin. And despite the fact that there are blades involved, there is no pain associated with a dermaplaning treatment, so you don’t need to be worried.

How often should you be treated?

We recommend a Dermaplaning facial treatment about once a month for best results. Your skin needs enough time in between to rejuvenate so that you don’t over-exfoliate.

There are a number of at-home dermaplaning treatments in the market, but it is strongly advised that you only have the treatment administered by a professional as it can be dangerous if done by an amateur.

Anti-Aging Guide By Age Range (20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50+)

Skin care and beauty routines might be the least of your concerns (especially if you’re in your early 20s) but laying the groundwork now with regular facial treatments can yield a surprising amount of long-term benefits.

Age can certainly play a major part when it comes to picking the most effective facial for you, but what facials are better for certain ages?

Here’s a quick look at which treatments are most effective for each age bracket:

Starting good habits in your 20s

In your 20s you might feel like you’re too young, too busy working, or too busy socialising to be thinking about anti-ageing facials, but treatments like microdermabrasion aren’t just reserved for later life – they can provide massive benefits if started early.

Microdermabrasion is a professional-grade treatment used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating collagen growth and minimising pore size – ultimately providing a strong youthful glow.

Importantly, however, it can also be very useful in fighting acne – whether you’re looking to help clear up discolouration or scarring.

Banishing blemishes in your 30s

Whether you’re dealing with see-sawing pregnancy hormones or the beginnings of wrinkles, keeping your face looking youthful in your 30s is perhaps easiest with a combination of Hydrafacial and Microneedling.

In your 30s fine lines begin to develop as collagen breaks down in the skin, Microneedling combats these by using an intelligent dermaroller system to prick the skin, thereby generating new collagen and skin tissue for a smoother, firmer finish.

Hydrafacials are similarly useful for their combination of cleansing, extraction, hydration, exfoliation, and ultimately; protection.

Maintaining a youthful look in your 40s and 50s

In your 40s and 50s the lines that might’ve started forming become deeper and more noticeable, with tell-tale signs of ageing like crow’s feet becoming more entrenched.

Beyond this, due to hormonal changes your skin actually becomes thinner, losing elasticity and strength.

To combat these stubborn forms of ageing facials like radio frequency skin tightening (RF) and microneedling are the most effective, with RF using energy to heat the facial tissue, stimulating subdermal collagen production to nullify fine lines and tighten up loose skin.

Which Chemical Peel Treatment Should You Choose? Our SkinCare Expert Weighs In

Facial peel treatments exfoliate deeper than face scrubs while lifting away the core of your skincare concerns. They are usually gentler than abrasive scrubs, and new formulations are continuously enhancing their effectiveness.

At Ivory Aesthetics we offer a variety of advanced face peel options, and have asked our top skincare expert to explain who will benefit most from the different treatments we offer.

People with acne prone or oily skin issues

If you suffer from problems with greasy skin and pimples caused by acne, you need a peel that uses fairly light ingredients and requires minimal downtime. These types of peel break down the bonds that hold your dead skin cells together, making exfoliation easier. Active ingredients that deliver antioxidants and vitamins penetrate deep into the skin and promote strength and good health in new cells that grow.

Top 3 peels for you:

  1. Nimue corrective treatment
  2. Oxygenating thermal detox
  3. Nimue TCA treatment

Minor issues with pigmentation, sun damage and fine lines

These issues require more medium depth peels. They are a little more uncomfortable compared to lighter peels and may cause minor side effects like redness and swelling. You will require some downtime with these, but the extra layers you shed will ensure that the brand new skin emerges from underneath, with a smooth texture and an even tone.

Top 3 peels for you:

  1. Nimue TCA treatment
  2. Nimue glycolic acid peel
  3. Nimue fading treatment

People with scarring, severe sun damage and/or deep wrinkles

These issues require the strongest type of facial peel. You will need to be sedated for the procedure and can expect to have very red, possible scabby skin that will necessitate around a week of downtime to recover, plus 2 months of healing time. You will require a full-face procedure, because hyper-pigmentation cannot be treated in small areas, but you will get dramatic results.

  1. Nimue fading treatment
  2. Nimue glycolic acid peel
  3. Nimue corrective treatment

If you’re experiencing any of the problems described above, and would like to try one of our superb chemical peel treatments, call us on 04 451 5554 to book a free consultation with our skincare specialist.

Our aesthetic spa is conveniently located in Business Bay, Dubai.

The best anti aging secrets – a skilled aesthetician & a facial regime

While there’s a multitude of skincare therapies and beauty regimes out there, it’s important to remember that the skin care professional you choose to perform the routines is just as important as the therapies you opt for.

It makes sense, after all – when we think of refreshing the exterior of our home, we don’t think twice about looking for recommendations for the best possible person for the job – and your skin should be no different. It pays to find someone who understands what they’re doing.

A good aesthetician will be able to chart the progress of your skin each time you attend an appointment. This will inform them of what treatments to opt for going forward. By building up a long-standing relationship with your skincare professional, you’re investing in someone who will take the time to get to know what works for you.

What services does an aesthetician provide?

A qualified aesthetician will have an impeccable understanding of skin wellness and should be able to help you to balance the oil and moisture contents of your skin to achieve the best possible complexion, regardless of your skin type or tone. Everybody is unique, and treatments should be tailored specifically to your requirements.

Aestheticians use a variety of facial cleansing techniques including exfoliation, pore cleansing, chemical peels and facial steaming. A qualified professional will understand the how’s, why’s and when’s of changing the creams, lotions, wraps, gel masks and salt scrubs used on your skin as your beauty regime progresses.

Huda Beauty Lashes or A LVL Lash Treatment – Which Should You Choose?

A pair of false lashes can truly bring something magical to your look – after application, they immediately enhance the appearance of your eyes and make you stand out from the crowd. But what are the alternatives?

LVL lash treatment (short for length-volume-lift) is an innovative beauty treatment which can create much the same effect as Huda Beauty lashes with your own natural eyelash lift.

How does LVL lash treatment work?

It’s quite simple. A beauty therapist uses a setting serum to help straighten your lashes at the roots. This creates the appearance of them being naturally curled up. The lashes are then tinted, which makes the lashes look like mascara has been applied. LVL lashes are one of the most popular beauty trends in Dubai at the moment, but that’s not to say that Huda Beauty lashes don’t have their place, either.

What are the best Huda Beauty lashes to choose?

There’s no straight answer to this one – it all depends on the look you’re going for. For those who want a classic look without adding too much drama, Huda Beauty’s Samantha lashes are recommended. These medium-volume lashes are great for a more natural look, and work well with smoky eye makeup.

Those who want thicker, more dramatic lashes should opt for the Lana range. These are best suited to heavy eye makeup.

Huda Beauty’s Scarlett lashes are the best for ladies who want to go for complete drama. These lashes are longer towards the end of the strip, creating an interesting effect at the edges of the eyes – perfect for a kooky, experimental look.

For those seeking a naturally glam appearance, Giselle lashes work best. These are perfect for day or evening wear and provide lots of length and volume.

Huda Beauty lashes or LVL lash treatment?

Ultimately, it all comes down to personal preference. While LVL lash treatment provides a much more natural look, the convenience of Huda Beauty lashes cannot be understated.

Radiofrequency & Microneedling Treatment – A PowerLift Combo for Sagging Skin

While we’re all aware that there are plenty of anti-aging treatments on the market, few of us ever think to combine one or more treatments to achieve even better results. The good news is that non-invasive treatments like Collagen Induction Therapy, Microneedling Treatment and Radio Frequency skin tightening can be used in alternate or concurrent sessions for maximum effect.

Here’s why each of these are among the best anti-aging treatments available in Dubai:


As the name suggests, Microneedling involves small needles being inserted into the skin. When the skin becomes pricked, this stimulates the growth of new collagen and skin tissue, resulting in a much firmer, toned appearance. This therapy is mostly used on the face and can be beneficial in reducing the appearance of scars, large pores and wrinkles.

It’s a minimally invasive procedure which takes about two hours in total and requires no downtime – simply receive the treatment and enjoy the rest of your day.

Radio Frequency Treatment

This anti-aging treatment relies on the natural healing abilities of the body to create a firmer look. During the procedure, a warm wand emits radio frequencies and is passed over the skin in a circular, sweeping motion. As the skin gently heats to approximately 40C, the brain becomes tricked into thinking the body has received a potential injury, thereby stimulating a healing response. This results in the tightening of elastin fibers and an increase in collagen production. Professionals recommend a course of six treatments over a three-week period for the best possible results.

Combining Microneedling and Radio Frequency treatments

Because Microneedling creates gaps in the pores, this allows for radio frequency devices to create an even greater wound-healing response from the body. Larger amounts of heat can delve deeper into the skin via the open pores, resulting in a marginally increased level of collagen creation. This dream combination helps to improve both the firmness and texture of the skin.
