Springing into Spring

This week on the blog we’re looking at 5 treatments to give your face a little boost before the warm weather arrives.

Treatment 1: Microdermabrasion

Average treatment time: 30mins

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that uses tiny crystals to gently exfoliate the skin to help remove the superficial layer of dead cells that can leave your complexion looking dull and tired. When this layer is removed, the body is stimulated to replace the skin cells with new, healthy ones, which can help to refresh and rejuvenate your complexion.

Treatment 2: Botox

Average treatment time: 30mins

Botox®’ is the brand name for a naturally occurring protein – Botulinim Toxin, it is used in incredibly small concentrations in injectible form to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® works by preventing communication between nerve cells and muscles, which relaxes the muscles reducing the movement that creases the skin causing visible wrinkles. It is the most popular product of it’s kind for the reduction of the appearance of wrinkles on the face.

Treatment 3 Obagi

The Obagi Nu-Derm System, is a special skin care treatment which will be prescribed to you by a medical physician. Its function is to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to accelerate its cellular turnover to push new skin cells to the surface faster, for smoother skin. Obagi is a product treatment programme that can help to reduce pigmentation, promote even skin tone, increase collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient looking skin and increase nutrients natural hydration for supple, healthy-looking skin.

Treatment 4: Fillers

Average treatment time: 60mins

Dermal fillers consist of an injectable gel substance that is medically designed to imitate hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to keep skin stable, it locks in moisture and also helps to renew the healing skin. Dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Belotero, Juvederm and Restylane are designed to work with your existing hyaluronic acid to add volume and smooth wrinkles on the face.

Treatment 5: Tixel

Average treatment time: 45mins

Tixel uses controlled heat energy delivered through a specially designed handpiece to encourage the skin the to renew itself. It does this by the controlled removal of tiny pin sized portions of the superficial surface layer of the skin, which activates healing and the formation of new skin cells. This freshens the appearance, stimulating collagen which helps to combat signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as being a good treatment option for acne scarring.
