The ravages of time and the sun

Although it is not possible to turn back the hands of time, its effects can be dramatically slowed down and improved with the arsenal of procedures and techniques available at our centre.

Dull skin is often described as skin that has lost its brightness and looks grey in appearance. As we age, this can become a common skin complaint. The natural decrease in cell turnover can cause a build-up of dead skin cells and a dull looking complexion.

The natural aging process generally produces lines and wrinkles, age spots, splotches and pigmentation problems, broken capillaries, dull skin texture and colour, and other skin flaws.Sun damage compounds the aging process. Ultraviolet light from the sun penetrates not only the outer layer of skin but also those layers underneath which fortify the skin and lend it resilience.

Anti-aging creams and topical products are usually used to treat the milder symptoms of aging such as damage to the skin’s uppermost layers.

it is important to protect the skin from damage whilst also encouraging cell turnover. Wearing an SPF  on a daily basis, such as our SPF 50 defend against harmful UV rays which age the skin all year round. Using an exfoliator which contains glycolic acid such as our gentle exfoliating cleanser.

For more advanced signs of aging and sun-damage, our aesthetic doctor will choose the surgical method or combination of methods best suited to your individual skin condition. Following are our common categories of treatment to refine your appearance and make your skin look and feel healthy and attractive.

TREATMENTS FOR DULL- AGING SKIN

At Our centre we use several techniques to get rid of dull skin. At your consultation our doctor will advise you of the best option for your individual skin.

MICRODERMABRASION

This exfoliating treatment is ideal for treating dull skin. It is performed using a mechanical device which simultaneously buffs away unwanted imperfections using microcrystals and vacuums the top layer of skin. The superficial depth of skin removal helps promote new skin cells and collagen production resulting in plumper, brighter skin. Learn More

MICRONEEDLING  ( medical DERMAPEN ™ )

We uses medical Dermapen , small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells, stimulate new elastin and collagens formation, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. Skin appears brighter and younger looking. Learn More

SKIN PEELS

At our centre we offer a number of skin peels that are designed to brighten and refresh dull skin. The treatment involves applying a non toxic chemical to the skin to encourage cell turnover and the exfoliation process. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant. Many of the lighter skin peels are relatively pain free. Learn More
