If you can’t stand an extensive daily beauty routine, it may be worth shelling out for a few longer-lasting treatments. The irony of it is, the more low-maintenance you want your beauty routine to be (while staying maintained), the more you may spend. Thankfully, we are here to tell you about all the beauty treatments that are worth every last penny in your wallet. Not only will they save you money in the long run, but they will also save you tons of time, and what is more valuable than that?
Laser Hair Removal
If you are ready to toss out the razor and never go back, it’s time to look into laser hair removal. Laser hair removal treats areas with unwanted hair, like legs, arms, upper lip, underarms, or even your bikini line. Think of it like a longer lasting wax. The treatment requires multiple sessions depending on the type of hair you have, and then maintenance approximately every 6 months after that. The price varies depending on where you live and the areas you’re treating, but it can be anywhere from $200-$900 a session. If you can budget for this time-saving treatment, you will not regret it.
Eyebrow and Lash Tint & Extensions
Not all of us were born with perfectly full, dark eyebrows or lashes. If you want your eyebrows or lashes to appear fuller without having to fill them every day, look no further. You could tint them yourself at home, but if you want a no-fuss, right-the-first-time situation, you should book an appointment with a lash specialist. The treatment costs $50-100, depending on where you get it done, and you’ll need to get your brows and lashes re-tinted every four weeks or so.
Want to go a little more va-va-voom? Eyelash extensions are all the rage. Skip the mascara in the morning, and have that glamorous, wide-awake look when you get out of bed in the morning. A full set will cost around $150, and you’ll want to get them re-filled every 2-3 weeks because your eyelashes naturally shed and new lashes grow in.
If you want to save yourself money, time, and patience, then you probably already know the benefits of getting a gel manicure. Not only do they last about two weeks longer than regular paint, but the initial gel paint also dries as they are cured, so they are completely dry when you walk out of the nail salon.
Chemical peels, although they require some recovery time, will transform your skin completely. Think of chemical peels as a sort of clean slate for your skin. Peels cause dead, damaged skin to literally peel off your face, revealing smooth, glowing skin. This facial treatment is on the pricer side compared to other facials, with light peels starting at $150 and deep peels costing up to $4,000 if anesthesia is required. Don’t shy from the price, though – this treatment is absolutely something to leave to a licensed dermatologist or esthetician.
First of all, there is nothing wrong with a woman who has cellulite – it’s normal! But, if it bothers you, you can treat it. For around $4,000, you can get Cellfina – a minimally invasive procedure to reduce cellulite. Keep in mind that Cellfina is an operation, so you will need to lay low for a few days to recover.
