Intraceuticals’ AmazingA-List Launch In Dubai
Eva Longoria and Naomi Campbell are said to be huge fans, while Fergie swears by its skin-hydrating effects. Amazing news for us, then, that Dubai’s Bionix Body Designers has introduced Intraceuticals Facial Treatments to its ever-growing menu. With bespoke facials to moisturise, brighten, reduce lines and clear blemishes, hydraulic acid is put centre-stage for much plumper and younger-looking skin. What’s more, it’s relatively gentle, meaning you can apply make-up straight afterwards! Where do we sign up?
