The gong of wedding bells not only makes the bride and the groom jittery but also the “in-laws”. Every bride desires to be an epitome of beauty and befalls to be the fragrance of the occasion on her special day. However, in today’s age it is not only the bride or the groom, but also the “in-laws” who have become conscious to look their best on the “special day”.
They have not only become open minded but also fashion-forward and style-savvy. They choose the best designer wear; consult the best stylist for every occasion. But that is not all, they also want to look refreshed, rejuvenated and picture perfect on the wedding day of their son or daughter.
The wedding industry is one of the biggest industries in India, since 4 years the industry has grown larger and larger. Since last 2 years there has been a trend for the bride and entire family to look their best at the wedding, this includes groom and his family too. I would say that among bridals makeover requests, around 40% come with the groom and family.
Wedding celebration is a grand affair for all, every family focuses on putting up a great show for all.
Most of the cases are above the age of 45. Parents / bridal family packages start from 10,000 all the way to 1 lakh depending on what needed. It can range from 3 months to 1 week before wedding. Moms mainly undergo skin brightening procedures to remove blemishes and pigmentation, then for fine lines and wrinkles we use Botox and Juvederm Fillers.
If they take up a 2 month package, it entails weekly LED photo facial and body detox, with Oxygen and multivitamin jet infusion followed by non surgical face rejuvenation using Botox, dermal fillers, threads or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. Depending on the age of the patient, we offer brow lift, neck lift and face lift, using Botox injection ”.
Nowadays moms are very knowledgeable and hence many patients know what they want. And they are not afraid to experiment with their look to look the best on the big day.
Most mothers in law go in for non-surgical options like thermage, chemical peels, Botox and Juvederm fillers to look younger and more beautiful. But there are a few who do not mind going in for surgical procedures. The different kinds of surgeries that they would go for would be liposuction if they want to look slim, blepharoplasty to remove fat or excess skin around the eyes, midface lift to lift the cheeks and sagging skin. But these surgeries need to be planned well in advance, about 6 months, prior to the function.
The number of people who opt for lunch time procedures like Botox and filler injections to smoothen out lines and wrinkles increased significantly during the last few years. A combination of treatments in the form of a radio frequency machine like thermage is advised to tighten up the skin, botox and filler injections are done to take care of lines and wrinkles and a facial is done 2-3 days prior to the main function.
The trend of opting for invasive and non-invasive anti ageing treatments has definitely changed over the last 2-3 years. More and more women and men are not only getting look conscious but are also aware about the facts that there are so many different and safe options available to make you put your best face forward for special occasions.
The idea is to look their best and shine on the special occasion not to outshine the bride.
April 30, 2015, Bangalore: Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) today launched The All New Camry – Camry Hybrid and Camry Gasoline. The All New Camry comes with an unmatched offering of luxury. It has been designed to match the refined and ever evolving customers need for a luxury car. The All New Camry has an essentially new exterior that creates an even more innovative, prestige appearance appropriate for luxury sedan.
Camry Hybrid comes with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) powertrain. Camry Hybrid’s “full hybrid” powertrain combines the performance of a 2.5 litre Atkinson cycle four – cylinder gasoline engine and a high – torque electric motor.
The Camry Hybrid has a combined power (engine + motor) output of 205 PS coupled with leading – edge fuel economy of 19.16 kmpl* and 122.8 gm of CO2 emissions per km of driving, which is far lesser than the conventional vehicles of similar engine size. The Camry Hybrid comes with an Electronically Controlled Continuous Variable Transmission (E-CVT), which provides enhanced driving performance, with reduced fuel consumption and lower NVH.
The Camry Hybrid a full hybrid is a self charging vehicle, unlike an electric vehicle. When the vehicle decelerates or at the time of braking, the electric motor acts as a generator and converts the kinetic energy to electric energy in a process called regenerative braking. This energy is stored in Camry Hybrid’s HV battery pack for later use when needed to power the vehicle.
Taking luxury to the next level the Camry Hybrid provides an advanced air conditioning system with three – zone control, a pollen filter and break through nanoeTM water coated ion technology. It provides moisturizing benefits to occupants’ skin and hair and deodorises the cabin.
The Camry Hybrid and Gasoline also come with first in segment luxury features
– Power recline rear seat (8 degrees)
– Rear armrest with controls for power recline rear seats, power sunshade for rear windshield, audio system and air conditioning
– 3 Zone Air conditioning facilitates individual temperature controls for the driver, front passenger and rear passenger, enabling perfect comfort for everyone
Pioneers of Hybrid, Toyota has a history of more than 15 years to its credit and over 7 million hybrid cars across the globe.
The gasoline Camry was first introduced in 2002, in India. In 2012, TKM began locally manufacturing the gasoline Camry. Toyota marked an important milestone in the history of the Indian Auto Industry in 2013, with the launch of India’s first ever locally manufactured hybrid – Camry Hybrid. The launch of the New Camry Hybrid further reinforces Toyota’s belief in adopting “alternative motoring” as an answer to overcome carbon emission woes, in India and across the globe.
The All New Camry is available in seven vibrant colours – Dark Brown Mica Metallic, Attitude Black, Grey Metallic, White Pearl Crystal Shine, True Blue Mica Metallic (exclusive for Hybrid), Silver Metallic and Greyish Blue Mica Metallic (exclusive for Gasoline).
The All New Camry Hybrid is priced at Rs.31.92 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)
The All New Camry gasoline is priced at Rs.28.80 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)
Speaking on the occasion of the launch Mr. Masato Katsumata, Chief Engineer, Camry , Toyota Motor Corporation said, “ Camry is our Luxury flagship model, with an unmatched offering of luxury, space and value made possible by Toyota’s traditional strengths of quality, durability and reliability.
With each new model we are constantly striving to make Camry even better and so it is constantly evolving – along with the changing needs of our customers – in order to give them the best.”
Speaking on the occasion of the launch Mr. Naomi Ishii, Managing Director, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said; “Camry a symbol of Toyota’s prestige has been well received in India. We would like to thank the customers of Camry for its success in India. We have sold more than 8000 Camry since launch. Camry Hybrid, India’s first ever locally manufactured Hybrid has also been well accepted. There is increased awareness and acceptance of Hybrid in the Indian market. Currently Camry hybrid constitutes 73% of total Camry sales.
Rising oil imports, road safety and increased pollution are some of the grave problems faced by India. Environment-friendly vehicles will go a long way to remedy this. Hybrid vehicles can truly have a positive impact only if they are widely used. It is our endeavor to constantly educate and encourage the use of hybrid vehicles in India.
We would like to thank the Government for initiating the FAME scheme, aimed to facilitate faster market creation and manufacturing eco system for environment friendly vehicles like hybrid. The recently notified demand incentives under FAME which stipulated upfront reduced purchase price at the time of purchase to buyers will give a boost to the demand and encourage faster adoption of these vehicles in India.”
Camry Hybrid India’s first ever locally manufactured Hybrid is the first hybrid to receive a demand incentive under the FAME scheme in India.
