• Skin Treatments Explained


    Get to the bottom of what treatments are right for you, and effectively target your concerns with our skin treatment breakdown.

It can be really hard knowing what’s right for your skin when it comes to treatments, and isn’t something anyone wants to rush into before knowing the full facts. You might have spent hours trawling the internet self-diagnosing your concerns, and then even longer trying to find out what treatments are best for you, yet feel like you’ve gotten no further than when you began. Our skin is an essential investment, and as ambassadors of safe and ethical treatments, we want you to be as informed as possible when it comes to getting the right treatment for you.

We still recommend coming into our clinics for a free consultation with one of our expert practitioners who will give you educated and honest advice on your concerns, however in order to help you get the best start possible, we’ve devised the below that lists the main areas of concern, which treatments effectively target them, and exactly how they work.

Dull skinPlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

Customised Facials, Microdermabrasion, Epionce Lite Refresh Peel or Aestheticare Glycolic and Taurine Peel

HOW THEY WORK

Target dull skin with one of our lighter treatments, which work to refresh the skin with a variety of specifically targeted ingredients, that all leave the skin instantly brightened.

Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion uses a small vacuum tool to exfoliate and reveal fresh skin cells on the surface. Crystals are applied to gently buff your skin, and the gentle vacuum tool stimulates the underlying skin to promote new collagen production.

Epionce Lite Refresh
This peel uses 2 main acids: Malic Acid (30%) and Salicylic Acid (5%). These accelerate cell turnover with less exfoliation than other peels to reveal more beautiful, radiant skin. This treatment also contains healing extracts such as willow bark so it’s great to heal inflamed skin. The peel is applied to the skin and builds up throughout your treatment, meaning that a noticeable improvement can be seen throughout your journey. With little to no downtime, this peel is fantastic for those just wanting to refresh the skin, and anyone who is trying a peel for the first time.

Customised Facials
Our customised facials are as they suggest; customised to your skin and concerns, and contain pharmaceutical-grade active ingredients that are proven to penetrate the skin to the deepest layer. They calm, correct and clear a range of concerns, and are fantastic for reviving, hydrating and soothing the skin.

Aestheticare Glycolic and Taurine (G&T) Skin Peel: our newest treatment, this peel uses Glycolic Acid (30% or 50%) and Taurine (1%) to stimulate cell renewal, instantly improving the texture of skin that has a slightly thicker appearance, and lightening surface pigmentation. Throughout your treatments, skin will become firmer, hydrated and even in skin colour.

Persistent acnePlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

Advanced Skin Peels: Dermaquest Modified Jessner’s Peel or Dermaquest TCA Peel

HOW THEY WORK

Get to the root of persistent acne with the help of our advanced skin peels. Formulated with ingredients that target the exact cause of the breakouts, these peels are able to calm inflammation within the skin, encourage new cell growth, and reduce breakouts for good. It is important to bear in mind that for those with severe acne, there is often no ‘quick fix’, and these treatments require consistent sessions in order to see the best results.

Dermaquest TCA
A combination of Trichloroacetic Acid and Salicylic Acid, this peel is ideal for those with deeper pigmentation and comedonal acne, and gently dissolves the top layer of the skin, revealing fresh, new skin cells underneath. With a low PH level, this peel penetrates the top layers of your skin and breaks down your skin’s natural glue (lipid cement). It encourages new skin cells to form, sheds dead skin and renews smoothness, plumpness and colour.

Dermaquest Modified Jessner’s Peel
Preventing persistent breakouts and calming current blemishes with Salicylic Acid, this advanced peel is also an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial treatment, making it fantastic for targeting the causes of active acne and calming the skin to prevent further breakouts. It employs Lactic Acid to lift dark spots due to acne scarring, and exfoliates away dead skin cells, excess oil and debris to establish your clean and clear complexion.

Mild acnePlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

Skin Peels: Dermaquest Salicylic Peel, Dermaquest Retinol Peel or Obagi Radiance Peel

HOW THEY WORK

Soothe and prevent mild acne with skin peels containing key anti-inflammatory and blemish fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid and retinol.

Dermaquest Salicylic Peel
Containing 20% Salicylic Acid this peel helps to reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne, preventing future breakouts. By targeting blemish-causing bacteria, the treatment effectively releases hardened sebum whilst supressing oil. It’s safe for red, inflamed acne skin that shows signs of sensitivity.

Dermaquest Retinol Peel
With a high combination of 4% Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid, this treatment penetrates the skin to stimulate cell renewal. It gradually brings all the new healthy hydrated skin up to the surface. It also prevents dead cells from clogging pores which helps your skincare products work effectively. This helps reduce acne breakouts and puts you in control of your skin.

Obagi Radiance Peel
The main active ingredient within this peel is Salicylic acid, which as an oil-soluble ingredient, works to deep clean even the most clogged pores/blackheads. This peel starves acne of its fuel and tackles it at the root, meaning breakouts are effectively prevented from returning.

Acne scarringPlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

Microneedling (EDS and Dermaroller)

HOW IT WORKS

Reduce the appearance of marks and scars left from acne with the help of our fantastic microneedling treatments. Using micro-fine needles, these treatments encourage the production of collagen within the skin, so it is prompted to regenerate, and come back plumper and visibly smoother in texture.

Dermaroller or EDS
A small handheld roller or EDS head is manually applied to the skin. It’s gently rolled over the area to regenerate it. The treated skin responds by producing more natural collagen which your skin needs to stay firm and regenerate scar tissue. This treatment takes a minimum of 3 sessions to see results, and for those with severe scarring we would recommend a course of 6 treatments in total.

 

 

Large poresPlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

Microneedling – Electronic Dermastamp (EDS)

HOW IT WORKS

When you look in the mirror, do you zoom in on your pores? Do you wish you could somehow reduce them, and tried every skin care product going? Microneedling treatments can help reduce your pores, tighten skin and improve it’s texture.

EDS (Electronic Dermastamp)
A handheld electronic tool with micro-fine needles is used to roll over the skin, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin so the skin will become firmer and tighter, in turn reducing the size of pores.

PigmentationPlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

Skin Peels: Dermaquest Hibiscus Peel

HOW IT WORKS

A skin peel can sound worse than it is! They are actually naturally derived from fruit acids and exfoliate the surface of the skin and improve a number of skin concerns. By removing dull, dead cells from the skins surface, peels can help bring new skin to the surface, reducing pigmentation.

Dermaquest Hibiscus
A unique pairing of Hibiscus Alpha Hydroxy Acids with Mandelic Acid, this peel works to deeply exfoliate and liberate undesired hyperpigmentation from the skin, resulting in a healthier and brighter complexion.

Fine linesPlusMinus

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

Skin Resurfacers: Epionce Lite Refresh, EDS (Electronic Dermastamp)

HOW THEY WORK

If you have started to notice the early signs of ageing, those very fine lines that appear often around the eyes, upper lip and forehead, but aren’t ready for anti-wrinkle injections – our skin peels or microneedling treatments can help reduce and prevent further lines appearing.

Epionce Lite Refresh
This peel uses 2 main acids: Malic Acid (30%) and Salicylic Acid (5%). Salicylic acid and Malic acid accelerate cell turnover with less exfoliation than other peels to reveal more beautiful, radiant skin. The peel also contains healing extracts such as willow bark so it’s great to heal inflamed skin. The peel is applied to the skin and is built up throughout your treatment, meaning that a noticeable improvement can be seen throughout your journey.

EDS Revitalise

Helping to prevent the ageing process, this treatment is fantastic for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. A serum is applied to the skin whilst the microneedles create tiny holes within your skin, which allows the active ingredients in the serum to penetrate deeper down and work from the inside out.

Further treatments such as Botox® Anti-wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers, Hydration Treatments and Profhilo® can also help with ageing concerns.
