The Non-surgical Skin Care Treatments For You This AutumnFriday, September 20th, 2019 | Blog
As we approach the end of September, we’re not too far off the clocks going back and getting into the golden glow of autumn. Indeed, autumn and winter can be a great time to relax and rejuvenate after a busy summer and just your wardrobe sees a few changes, your skincare routine is also something to consider.
As colder weather sets in, you may see changes to your skin in the form of dryness and the summer sun may have caused pigmentation as a result of sun exposure. Here are a few of our treatment picks for the months ahead.
Dermal fillers for skin hydration
Dermal filler injections are one of the most popular non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments around; along with Botox they make up 90% of the market globally. They are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring substance found in the body responsible for keeping your skin hydrated and full of volume. As we age, our supply of HA reduces which is what brings on signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. HA has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, making dermal fillers a great choice of treatment for the colder months when your skin is more susceptible to losing its moisture.
Chemical peel: tackling pigmentation
After several months of sun exposure, a chemical peel is an ideal treatment to improve your complexion going into the winter months, helping you to look your best for upcoming festive functions and events. The summer months can cause changes to the pigmentation of the skin and glycolic and TCA (tricholoacetic acid) peels can help to eradicate blemishes and pigmentation that might have occurred as a result of sun exposure. The effects are achieved by penetrating the epidermis and dermis (for glycolic and TCA respectively), increasing cell growth and encouraging the skin to produce more collagen, the protein responsible for your skin looking radiant and firm.
Tear troughs treatment: eradicate signs of fatigue and ageing
After a long summer, many of us realise we’ve not had quite enough sleep and exercise, especially after the school holidays when the kids are at home 24/7. As we get older, it can be more difficult for the skin to bounce back after busy and stressful periods, causing the onset of dark circles under the eyes – this is indeed, one of the first signs of ageing. Tiny injections of a hyaluronic acid and local anaesthetic amalgamate can be injected between the rim of the eye and the cheekbone to restore volume for up to 18 months afterwards, accentuating your natural features.
Perhaps most importantly, treatments such as those outlined above help to keep you feeling confident and rejuvenated on the inside. Here at Artistry Clinic, we love patients relaying how treatment has affected their day-to-day wellbeing, which is arguably more important than the fantastic aesthetic benefits.
We have a tailored approach to all the treatments offered and understand no two patients are the same. Our philosophy is to treat the individual, according to their particular skin make-up, taking your overall facial aesthetic into account throughout.
