Ageing Skin: Ageing skin is quite a sweeping label as often one persons ‘ageing skin’ presents itself quite differently to others. Sagging skin, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, loss of facial volume, crepiness, liver spots, hollowness under the eyes; some of the many concerns that present themselves as our skin and body age.
At our CQC registered and Save Face accredited clinic, we have a large suite of market-leading skin treatments and highly qualified, experienced medical and aesthetic practitioners available to you, helping you to look and feel your best at the age you’re at.
We believe the skin treatments and aesthetics are a very personal choice. Our specialism is natural-looking treatment outcomes which we create with clinically-proven treatment technology and advanced techniques.
Some of our most popular treatments for skin and body rejuvenation include Thermage, Sculptra, Fraxel Dual, HIFU skin tightening, and dermal fillers which target your specific, and unique, concerns about ageing skin.
Sun Damage: Lifelong prevention is key to managing sun damage; regular use of a high-SPF sunscreen not only helps shield your skin from harm but also a study in the journal Dermatologic Surgery shows that using a daily SPF can actually reverse signs of photoaging such as wrinkles and some forms of hyperpigmentation. Embrace the habit of using sunscreen daily, even during colder months.
If you’ve found that pigmentation or wrinkles have already occurred, effective treatments are available. The Fraxel laser targets damaged areas of your skin, stimulating the growth of healthy cells and replacing the old, damaged cells. Clear + Brilliant uses fractional laser technology, very similar to the Fraxel laser, to address early signs of ageing and uneven texture; hence its nickname-the baby Fraxel. Obagi Nu-Derm, a prescription-strength treatment program, effectively treats melasma, sun-induced pigmentation, and other signs of skin ageing. Consistent sun protection and where possible, sun avoidance, is crucial post-treatment to maintain results and prevent additional damage which can start the skin ageing and hyperpigmentation processes in the skin.
Acne and Oily Skin: For those with acne-prone skin, avoiding the urge to strip it of oil is important, as this can exacerbate the issue for example Tea Tree oil, commonly used to dry out skin, can trigger excessive oil production because. Mild acne cases and oily skin can often be managed with at-home products. However, more severe categories of acne can often lead to scarring and necessitate intervention. Our CQC registered clinic offers skin treatment options to help including Regenlite, Isolaz, and Byonik, which address some of the contributing factors to acne, helping you to manage this often upsetting skin disease.
Rosacea: Rosacea often manifests as persistent redness, flushing, and facial broken veins typically on the cheeks, nose, and forehead. Though its exact cause is unknown, individuals manage symptoms effectively with dietary adjustments, stress management, at-home products, and in-clinic treatments. Advanced technology like Regenlite targets surface blood vessels to alleviate background redness; Veinwave is particularly effective in addressing visible thread veins, offering a visible improvement in these symptoms associated with the condition. Rosacea skin treatment often requires a combination of treatments to most effectively address the varied symptoms of this condition; Mandelic skin peels are often used to reduce and manage background redness, as well as reduce skin inflammation often associated with rosacea. The Byonik treatment is an extremely powerful tool in managing rosacea; from repairing the skin barrier, which is often compromised in those of use with rosacea, to reducing inflammation and calming redness and spots.
Dehydrated Skin: If you experience tightness after washing your face, it could be a sign of dehydrated skin, a common skin concern. To combat this, using a moisturiser is essential to reduce water loss, helping your body to maintain your skin hydration; this doesn’t need to be an all-singing-all-dancing product, a simple SPF designed for the face can work effectively as your moisturiser, as well as protecting you from UV rays. Incorporating a serum containing hyaluronic acid (HA) is highly recommended as this quickly and effectively works on the deeper layers of your skin to rehydrate it.
With well hydrated skin cells, you’ll notice increased plumpness and improved overall health, alleviating the sensation of tightness and, often, helping to soften and plump wrinkles.
Skin products are just one aspect of your skincare, however if you want more dramatic, and often quicker, results there are many treatments that you can consider. The Byonik treatment addresses both dehydration and ageing skin, as does Profhilo.
