Winter can be a challenging time for skin. With the change in weather and the addition of central heating, most people struggle with dry and sometimes uncomfortable skin during the winter months.
Skin sensitivity can also become more challenging with your skin showing more signs of redness and touch sensitivity.
There is a bonus to the winter months as the less sunshine makes for the perfect environment for treatments such as Laser Hair Removal, Lumecca and Skin Peels.
Laser Hair Removal:
We use a Medical Grade Class 4 Cynosure Elite laser which can achieve 70-100% hair reduction from any area. This machine is fully inclusive treating all skin and hair types.
For the best results we recommend a course of 6-8 sessions, 6-8 weeks apart. Meaning by next summer you course will be complete.
(The laser is attracted to pigment so we would advise against the use of sunbeds and fake tan 4 weeks before and during your course of treatment)
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat Pigmentation and Vascular lesions.
After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.
Lumecca operates using photothermosis through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. Improves the appearance of:
Age Spots (red/ brown pigmentations)
Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
We recommend this as a winter treatment as the IPL laser is attracted to pigment in the skin so we require you skin to remain its natural colour throughout the course and not tan. This would include the use of Fake Tan on the area and the use of sunbeds 4 weeks before and after the treatments
The ideal time for a skin peel is in the winters months as your skin will be more sun sensitive for the weeks following your treatments.
The Perfect Peel
The Perfect Pee is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. The perfect peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain free.
Professionally applied peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of ageing skin and make dull complexions glow.
Peels are safe for all skin types, and PCA Certified Professionals are trained to identify what treatment combination is safe for each person’s skin in order for patients to reap the greatest benefits. Professional peels are increasingly effective with pre- and post-treatment care, balancing your skin before the peel and nurturing it after the treatment.
Obagi Blue Radiance Peel:
A quick, superficial salicylic acid-based facial peel that exfoliates and helps improve overall complexion. It provides tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just 1 use. A series of 4 – 6 peels provide the best results.
The peel will help improve the following concerns:
Fine lines and wrinkles, rough and uneven skin, Blemishes and Mild to Moderate Photoaging.
Even though we recommend these treatments for winter we would still insist on you using SPF protection all year round especially when undergoing a course of treatment.
