The Best Salon Body Treatments for Smoother Skin
4 minutes read
When it comes to body care, there are two main rules for smooth skin: exfoliate and moisturise. Add in a tool or two (dry body brushing, anyone?) And the result should be velvety-soft skin. But it’s never that simple, is it? Most of us tend to prioritise our faces and neglect the skin on our bodies.
Taking care of your face may seem like hard work but maintaining smooth skin all over the body is much more challenging. There’s just so much more ground to cover. That’s precisely why we like to turn to the pros for help.
There are so many salon body treatments you can book now, and there’s something for every concern and preference – from relaxing massage therapies to high-tech treatments. We picked out our favourites that promise smooth, even-toned skin.
The best salon body treatments for smooth skin
Clarins Spa Body Renew
Clarins’ Body Renew is a hydrating full-body treatment that begins with a skin consultation and body analysis. This helps the therapist understand your skin’s needs so they can customise the products used during the treatment.
This is followed by a full-body exfoliation using AHAs and BHAs. Next, you’re treated to the massage using a cocktail of products, handpicked for your skin’s needs, that cocoon your skin in moisture.
The massage is carried out using over 80 intricate movements proven to slim and tone the body. Lastly, you get expert advice, including a personalised treatment plan, lifestyle tips and a homecare routine to maintain the results.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Try the Lymphatic Drainage Massage at Aesthetics Lab to give your body the ultimate detox. All you need to do is slip into a specially designed suit (that closely resembles a space suit), lie back and relax.
The suit will expand and deflate, adding carefully regulated pressure on various parts of your body. This process stimulates circulation and aids in lymphatic drainage. As a result, it can help reduce inflammation, relieve poor circulation and improve the appearance of cellulite.
The Light Salon Full Body Signature Light
Everyone seems to be raving about the benefits of LED therapy for the skin these days, and for a good reason. The non-invasive procedure can help reduce inflammation and breakouts, improve cell regeneration and fight premature signs of ageing.
And if you’re a fan of an LED facial, you would love an LED body treatment. Try The Light Salon’s Full Body Signature 830nm Light body treatment labelled as a ‘cellular workout’. It stimulates the cells and helps with tissue and muscle renewal. The result? Smooth, renewed skin.
Icon Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Mallucci’s Icon Laser Skin Rejuvenation uses fractional laser and multi-spectrum skin rejuvenation to address some of the most common skin woes. The all-in-one treatment can target scars and stretch marks, spider veins, sun damage and pigmentation.
As we get older, our collagen production slows down. But micro-needling (a minimally invasive treatment) gives it a boost. The Medical Needling body treatment at Eudelo Skin Clinic lets you reap those benefits on the body.
During the procedure, ultra-fine needles create microscopic punctures in the dermis. This activates the skin’s natural wound healing response, which boosts collagen and elastin production. The result is plumper, firmer skin.
At-home tips for smoother skin
Want to maintain the results of your salon treatment? Make sure you’re taking good care in between sessions too. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind.
Exfoliate your body twice a week using a gentle scrub. Try to make it a task you enjoy. First, choose your favourite scrub – it could be a simple exfoliating mitt, a nice-smelling product like the Exfoliating Body Scrub or even a luxe tool like the PMD Clean Body.
Avoid showers or baths that are too hot (or too long). We know how relieving they can be after a long day, but they don’t do your skin any favours. Instead, choose body cleansers that are mild and don’t strip the skin of moisture, especially if you’re prone to dry, rough skin.
Apply your body lotion as soon as you get out of the shower. Similarly, if you wash your hands very often, rub in some hand cream post-wash.
You could also reach for oil. A couple of times a week, apply a body oil on damp skin and take some time to massage it in. If you love a bit of aromatherapy, you can’t go wrong with the Relax Treatment Oil. On the other hand, if you want to kill two birds with one stone, choose the Tonic Treatment Oil that also helps improve skin elasticity and smooth the appearance of stretch marks.
