Tell us more about the AQUAPURE machine and what it does.

The newest machine is the Aquapure, it is a multi-functional facial machine to keep your skin beautiful. It has four types of handpieces and solutions that work effectively to deal with various skin problems. Aquapure can help reduce wrinkles, will give you bright, glowing skin and at the same time, it hydrates the skin.

What other machines are available at Royale Hayat and which skin problems do they help treat?

We have the HIFU machine, it has three handpieces to use. HIFU as a form of facial treatment employs the use of concentrated ultrasound energy to the face and neck by a handheld device. It works well for tightening and for open pores and scars. 

We also have the Thermage machine which is an older yet effective machine. The principle behind treatment is to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. Patients usually do it once a year for tightening and brightening the skin to rebuild the collagen and skin elasticity. 

We also do the basic peels, facials, all these contribute to good skin.

With so many products and routines in the market, everyone is confused. What are the basic skincare needs?

Daily cleansing is essential. Every day, as soon as you wake up, clean your face with a cleansing gel. Right after, apply moisturizer, and also, essentially, sunblock. You can also apply a face mask once a week. In addition, you can come in once every few weeks for the Aquapure facial treatment or you could also try mesotherapy.

Summer is coming up and lot of people neglect all the advice about avoiding the sun. Can you tell our readers how they can minimize skin damage caused by the sun?

If the climate is as hot as Kuwait, avoid the sun at the peak hours from 12-3 pm. Also, keep applying and re-applying sun protection. Sun protection is recommended under all conditions, in general, if you are going to be out in the sun.

Try to wear a hat to cover your face. After being out in the sun over long periods of time, you can try the mesotherapy treatment or Aquapure to hydrate and cleanse the skin.
