Flawless Skin: here’s how to get it, keep it & love it

Published 18 August 2022 by Collins234

Taking care of your skin at the end of each day is one thing. But, during different phases of life, our skin renewal process can change. From the hormonal changes experienced through adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause, through to genetic and environmental factors, we don’t always have total control over how our skin reacts. The good news is, there are treatments to help manage all kinds of skin changes.

Here are our top three to use at regular intervals to help support your skin no matter your age or stage:

  1. Peels
    You’d be excused for thinking peels are a relatively new skin treatment. However, salicylic acid has been used to treat various skin disorders for more than 2,000 years, (in the form of willow-bark for removing callouses and other skin lesions). They are among the most tried and tested forms of treatment for a range of skin symptoms, including age-related changes. There are many different types of peels with various active ingredients that work on pigmentation through to fine lines. Although a series of peels provides the best, long-lasting results, even a single treatment can make a significant difference. We particularly love our range of Mesoestetic medical skin peels. These are the ultimate anti-aging treatment. They remove superficial layers of the skin to stimulate cell rejuvenation and obtain even skin tone and texture. They decongest pores while hydrating the skin to address skin concerns ranging from rough, dull and lifeless skin to sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and congestion.  One of our favourite pick-me-up peels in this range is the Energy C Treatment, formulated with a powerful antioxidant infusion of 10% stable, micronised Vitamin C. This potent Vitamin C infusion induces the formation of collagen and elastin to improve the quality and integrity of the skin. The result is fresh, glowing, and healthy skin.

  2. LED Light Therapy
    For a totally pain-free and zero side-effect treatment that you can do in your lunch break, LED light therapy is your go-to. It works by emitting light that penetrates deep into the skin cells, which those cells convert into fuel (like photosynthesis). This stimulates the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin. LED treatment is often used in conjunction with numerous other treatments like microdermabrasion, photo rejuvenation, and chemical peels to accelerate and enhance the skin’s healing process. This can be beneficial for everything from active acne and pigmentation through to scars and stretch marks.

  3. Skin Needling
    It’s not just the skin on our face that deserves extra love and attention now and then. For concerns that go beyond just the skin on your face, micro-needling might be for you. It’s a form of collagen induction therapy and can be applied almost anywhere on the body. The process involves using an electronic skin needling device to create minuscule puncture channels in your skin. This promotes the healing response of the deeper dermis layers and stimulates collagen renewal and regeneration. This is a great treatment to combat acne scarring and other types of scarring, as well as wrinkles and pigmentation. Collagen truly is the skin’s greatest internal healer.
    That’s why skin needling is particularly great for:
    – Improving fine lines and deeper wrinkles
    – Reducing acne scars and stretch marks
    – Evening out skin tone, and lightening hyperpigmentation and sunspots
    – Reducing the appearance of pores
    – Firming and smoothing skin texture
    – Reducing broken capillaries and spider veins
