You may think that Christmas is the busiest time of year for skin treatment clinics, but actually January sees an influx of people looking to recover the condition of their skin for the New Year.
Christmas certainly takes its toll on your skin. The late nights, less healthy diet and increased alcohol consumption in the run up to Christmas are one thing, but then after the big day, relaxing on the sofa until New Year often means a drop in activity levels too, so your circulation can become more sluggish.
The final result is that rather than starting the New Year looking refreshed and vibrant, many people find they look tired and unhealthy as the skin lacks its normal radiance and its glow.
So just as much as the New Year is often a time to start a healthy diet and exercise regime, it is often a good time to look at the skin too.
We have put together our top treatment ideas for skin revitalisation:
GeneO+ Medical Facials A unique system which combines microdermabrasion, infusion and oxygenation to deliver a host of benefits.This facial can deliver a host of benefits, from instantly more radiant skin to longer term tightening and contouring of your facial features, rejuvenating the appearance of your skin
HydraFacial The HydraFacial name is synonymous with giving the skin a fabulous boost. Instant results and no downtime mean that this option can be done in a lunch hour and back to work, looking healthier already. As results develop and build, your skin will continue to improve
Cosmetic Injections Where there are noticeable lines and wrinkles appearing and/or loss of volume in the face, then the best solution may be injectable. There are a range of options here. Some work to replenish lost volume, thereby smoothing out lines and creases, while others relax the fine dynamic facial muscles that cause unnecessary movement. Our expert Aesthetic Doctors can advise on the most appropriate product and treatment, depending on your requirements.
Profhilo Another injectable product, Profhilo is worthy of special mention as it is quite unique in the way it works. The purpose of Profhilo is primarily to hydrate the skin and cause it to retain water. This boosts its condition and provides a soft, dewy glow which is the perfect antidote to colder winter climes and central heating. It also has a rejuvenating and tightening impact.
M22 Multi Technology Treatment The ‘Rolls Royce’ of treatments has to be the Lumenis M22. This system combines 4 key technologies – IPL, fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing, Multi-Spot™, ND:YAG and Q-Switched Nd:YAG. The system can be configured to treat over 30 skin conditions, tackling many problems simultaneously for a fabulous result. The M22 doesn’t just revitalise the skin, but can also tackle specific issues such as spider veins and sun spots, which are more visible than even in winter. The result is clearer and more even skin tone.
