Heading on vacation to a different country for work? Consider knocking out some of your beauty treatments while on vacation. This is an efficient way to utilize the spa at your hotel while on your business trip or to enhance your romantic getaway for two. Be careful that you invest in the right treatments at the right time and always make sure you do your research. Here is a list of beauty treatments deemed safe abroad:
A simple and easy procedure that you can have done while out of town is teeth whitening. This is an easy procedure that should be done within a board-certified dental staff. Because you have the assurance of a sanitary and sterile office where the procedure will be done, you can rest assured that you are getting quality treatment. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment. Always make sure to research the office you are contemplating on going to before you schedule an appointment.
Laser Hair Removal
Another safe and highly customizable procedure that you can do overseas is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair through the use of laser light pulses to destroy the hair follicles. It can also be a hefty investment in some countries. Always research where and with whom you are wanting to get this procedure done. A drawback of this procedure is that it often takes 4-7 treatments spaced weeks apart. So unless you are taking an extended vacation, this may not be a good option for you.
Injectable fillers that are placed underneath your skin with a syringe are increasing in popularity and can often be quickly in an office. Hyaluronic acid and collagen are just two types of fillers that can be used to fill in lines and wrinkles or plump your lips. However, complications have arisen because of ineptitude on behalf of the administrator of these fillers. Also, it is important to note that in some countries there are other ingredients added to the injectable solution. Always make sure to check the regulations on such products in the country you are looking at getting this procedure done.
If you aren’t worried about being seen in public for several days to a week, you might consider getting a chemical peel done while on vacation. These procedures use a superficial means to burn the top layer of skin, most often through the use of chemicals. Yes, it hurts. Yes, there are side effects. But worth it! This procedure is commonly used to combat acne scarring and wrinkles. Varying strengths of chemical peels are offered and the type of chemical being used varies based on the intended result. Again, make sure you know what regulations are in place to make sure you aren’t permanently scarring yourself by getting this procedure done abroad.
As with most of these procedures, there are some risks involved with getting them done abroad. However, most of these risks are apparent across country lines. Always make sure you do your research behind the products that are being used on you and on the doctors or estheticians that will be performing these procedures. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if this will enhance your time in another country or not. If not, stick with the fun tourist experiences and leave the serious beauty treatments for when you are at home.
