Facial Rejuvenation Treatments – A Guide To What We OfferFriday, November 17th, 2017 | Blog, Chemical Peels
Winter is coming. In fact, in many places, it feels like winter is here already now the temperatures have dropped. That means cosy nights in, brisk woodland walks, and it signals that Christmas is on its way. Winter is a wonderful time of year for the most part, but it’s not so wonderful for our skin. Colder temperatures can cause cracking and dryness, and that can make us look unwell, tired, and older. Fortunately, we have a range of facial rejuvenation treatments that can help keep your skin in prime condition throughout the winter season.
Caring for your skin with facial rejuvenation treatments
We offer a number of excellent facial rejuvenation treatments designed to help you look healthier and happier, and to protect your skin against the harshness of winter weather. Investing in these treatments to protect against winter skin damage from things like central heating and the chill of the winter wind will help you feel more confident, positive and give your skin an enviable winter glow.
If you’re looking for some facial rejuvenation treatments this winter, here’s a taster of what we offer:
1. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is one of our quickest facial rejuvenation treatments. Ideal for those who are tight on time. With impressive results, you can book a one-time treatment to ensure you’re looking your best at the office Christmas party, or at your next date. Alternatively, you can book a series of chemical peels which can are ideal for reducing scarring, or correcting any pigmentation issues. Chemical peels are an excellent choice for those whose confidence has suffered from acne scarring. They are also ideal for targeting wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, melasma and other pigmentation problems.
As far as facial rejuvenation treatments go, a chemical peel is one of the simplest available, providing excellent results. Chemical peels work by reacting with the top layer of your skin. The top layer literally ‘peels away’, leaving you with a brighter, smoother and healthier complexion. As the skin heals, it creates new cells and more collagen providing the added benefit of leaving your skin looking fresher and more youthful for longer.
2. Obagi Blue Peel
If you want something a little deeper and longer lasting, try the Obagi Blue Peel. This works wonders for reducing wrinkles and tightening skin that has lost some of its elasticity. It’s a longer procedure and may require some pain relief as it does take away more of the skin’s layers. However, the results are incredible, leaving you with a youthful glow.
Not only are the chances of winter skin damage reduced, but the end appearance is one of glowing vibrancy – exactly what is needed during the winter months.
The Obagi Blue Peel works by mixing a low concentration of trichloroacetic acid with a specially formulated blue base (and that’s where the name comes from). The blue base is used to make sure that the entire face is covered uniformly – an essential part of the procedure, and one of the reasons why this needs to be done by professionals. In fact, a skilled specialist can gauge exactly how deep they need the mixture to penetrate, and how much skin will need to be removed to give the individual the look they desire. The dead cells from the aged and damaged skin are peeled away, and the healthier cells underneath are revealed.
After the procedure, it is recommended that patients use the highly effective Obagi Nu-Derm System, a series of anti-ageing creams and rejuvenation serums that promote healthy cell growth.
3. Derma Roller
Derma Roller is a type of skin micro needling. It encourages the skin to repair itself by stimulating it deeply. The end result is a smooth, radiant, younger-looking complexion that is protected against the harshest of winter weather.
Before this facial rejuvenation treatment commences, a local anaesthetic is used to ensure that the procedure is pain-free. Although this technique has a longer healing time than other facial rejuvenation treatments, it offers longer-lasting and beautiful results.
