We truly believe that the service we offer goes above and beyond. So, don’t compromise on your skin, find out more about what makes us different and why you should start your journey with us.

As you might have seen, there are quite a lot of beauty and aesthetic chains out there! Plenty of companies offer laser hair removal and skin treatments, so that’s why we want to take a moment to tell you more about what makes us different. It’s for the reasons we outline below that we think you will have the best experience and achieve the results you’re looking for when you have your treatment with us. Choosing a clinic to put your trust in when it comes to something as important as your skin isn’t a decision that can be taken lightly, as the consequences of going with an inexperienced practitioner who isn’t properly trained can have a very serious impact on your body.

So let us tell you a bit more about our DestinationSkin Difference and why you can trust us to make you feel you at your best.
 

Safety is our standard

Your safety is our top priority. Coming in for a treatment can be exciting – you’re so close to getting the look you’ve been waiting for! – but the treatments we offer shouldn’t be treated as lightly as a haircut. Incorrectly applied laser or skin treatments can leave scars and other marks. You should never consider Injectable treatments offered by anyone without a background in medicine and the further relevant aesthetic qualifications, no matter how tempting the price.

We’re honest about this because we believe this is information you have a right to know before committing to a treatment. And we know that every one of our practitioners and injectors is trained to put your safety above all else. They won’t treat you with anything that isn’t appropriate for you and will test patch where necessary to minimise any risk of an adverse reaction. When it comes to laser hair removal, we use only the best quality lasers and ensure our machines are safety tested regularly. All of our practitioners receive thorough training in every treatment they administer, including regular knowledge refresher courses so they’re up to date.

You can find out more about own safety standards and the questions you can ask of any other clinics you’re considering here.
 

Expert clinical team that deliver results

All of our practitioners are fully qualified, highly trained and have years of experience in the industry. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and they can help. They’re experts and they’re passionate about giving you the best results through putting their knowledge to good use. We work with the suppliers of our products and treatments to properly train and empower every member of our clinical team, something we can guarantee doesn’t happen at other clinics out there, who may even be using second-hand lasers or other machinery that they haven’t been taught how to use correctly. Through working with our suppliers like Cynosure and Dermaquest, we make sure the expertise they have in their specific treatment areas makes our practitioners experts in their own right. It’s their job then to share this information with you, so you can make informed choices and understand everything that’s happening along the way.
 

Quality customer service you can trust

Our goal is to make you feel ‘you at your best’, and it’s not all about the end result. We want you to feel confident when you’re in our clinics, so your practitioner will work hard to address any concerns you have and keep you updated with everything that’s going on during your treatment. As much as possible, we’ll book you in with the same practitioner throughout your time with us, so you can benefit from building a relationship with someone who understands your motivations and desired results. The trust our customers put in our team is huge and we know it’s the mutual relationships that our practitioners and clients build together (as well as the great results!) that keep people coming back to DestinationSkin, making us a regular part of their skincare regime.
 

Bespoke consultations to find the right solution for you

Your journey with DestinationSkin, whether it’s for a skin concern, hair removal, or an injectable treatment, will start with a bespoke consultation. This experience eases you in and makes you feel comfortable with the process you’re going to be going ahead with. It also gives our practitioners and medical team the chance to look at your skin or concern, talk to you about your goals, and from that formulate your own tailored treatment plan. ‘Bespoke’ is key when it comes to the services we offer – not everything works for everyone, so we customise your journey to get you exactly what you’re looking for!

We don’t rush the consultation either. When you come in, you’ll get up to an hour of your practitioner’s time to properly check and discuss everything. You’ll leave wit your advised treatment plan and any product suggestions in hand, ready to confidently take the next step. If you’re considering laser hair removal, advanced skin treatments or injectable treatments and the clinic you’ve found doesn’t offer any kind of pre-treatment consultation, then do be wary as they likely don’t have your best interests at heart.

UV Skin Assessments

SKIN TREATMENT

Throughout our lifetime our skin is exposed to numerous elements such as the sun, free radicals (pollution), extreme weather conditions etc., and understanding exactly how healthy it is can be difficult. We can only see so much from looking in the mirror on a daily basis, but really understanding what is going on beneath our skin’s surface requires a bit more help!

This is why in recent years, skin professionals such as ourselves have begun to use the help of UV skin scanners to achieve a deeper analysis of the condition of our clients’ skin. By using these machines, not only are you able to know more about what’s happening to your skin, our practitioners are also able to better diagnose your concerns, and consequently more effectively treat you. Learn more about these fantastic machines below, and how you can have your skin assessed with us next time you’re in clinic.

A UV skin scanner is a machine that uses ultra-violet light to pick up problem areas on the skin that the naked eye would not easily be able to identify. This innovative form of skin analysis allows our practitioners to see under the surface of the skin, to identify areas of pigmentation, sun damage, dryness, dehydration, oiliness and other skin conditions. This then allows the practitioners to have a better understanding of the type of treatments or products that you may need to effectively address your concerns. You can see an example of what your skin looks like under the UV sensor in the main image above.

As mentioned above, UV skin scanners are used to better understand the condition of our clients’ skin, and allows our practitioners to see through to the lower layers of the skin. This allows the practitioners to pick up conditions that may not be obvious from a more basic assessment without using the UV machine, and therefore allows them to be more informed when recommending treatments or products.

UV skin assessments give a visual representation of exactly where you might be experiencing specific problems and what these are, e.g. oiliness on the t-zone, dehydration on the cheeks, sun damage on the nose etc. This means that not only do our practitioners know what conditions you may be suffering from, but they also know which areas need targeting, which all combines to help make your treatment or product plan as effective as possible.

Not a lot!… You simply place your head inside the machine, and the practitioner is able to sit on the other side and look through a lense to view your skin and see any of the areas outlined above. An example of one of our UV sensors being used can be seen below.

Whilst you do not need to prepare your skin with any specific products, we recommend that you arrive to your consultation without make up as this will allow our practitioners to see your natural skin clearly. However, if for any reason you do not wish to do arrive without make up, our practitioners will remove your make up in your private consultation, and you may reapply it once your skin has been thoroughly assessed under the skin analysis machine.

Not at all, the skin analysis is completely free and can be carried out during your initial consultation or at any other time during your treatment journey to assess the difference that your treatments or products may be having.

The last few weeks have been mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting for all of us. As coronavirus continues to impact our lives, it’s no surprise that levels of anxiety are increasing also.

As coronavirus continues to impact our lives, it’s no surprise that levels of anxiety are increasing also.

Stress affects your immune system so it’s important to try and stay as calm as possible. However as the Government advises those with symptoms (or those who live with anyone displaying symptoms) to self-isolate – and everybody else to socially distance themselves, it’s easy to feel a knock-on effect on your mental wellbeing. At DestinationSkin we wanted to share some of our wellness tips for how to protect your mental state and stay positive!
 

TIP 1 – Maintain a routine

Set a schedule for yourself to stick to when you can. And yes, keep on top of your skin care routine! Because when you look good, you feel good.

TIP 2 – Exercise

Continue to exercise as much as you can, as it instantly improves your mood. Take a walk outside, as it’s proven to reduce stress levels and helps nourish skin cells to keep elasticity!

TIP 3 – Beauty Sleep

Don’t let your stress keep you awake. More sleep boosts your immune system. So try to get 6-8 hours of rest a day. It’s during the hours of sleep that our cells rejuvenate, repairing damage of the previous day.

TIP 4 – Stay Connected

Keeping in contact with those close to you is crucial to de-stressing, so try and get online or phone and facetime someone you know. Remember, you are not alone!

TIP 5 – Mindfulness

Meditation, mindfulness and overall relaxation can help relieve your anxiety. Make sure you take the time to center yourself each day away from your devices.

Remember, you’re not alone and this will pass and we’ll come out of it stronger than ever. So stay calm, stay connected and we’ll all get through this together.

Antioxidants Uncovered

Why antioxidants should be your new skincare best friend..

Last month we informed you of the effects of the sun, and let you in on our top secrets for staying protected whilst enjoying the summer weather! We love keeping you updated on the very best skincare tips, so this month we’re continuing on our mission to equip you with all the tools you need to keep your precious skin protected from the sun, by informing you of the benefits of doubling up your skin protection with antioxidants!

You might think you’re clued up when it comes to wearing sun cream, and even know the difference between UVA and UVB (well done to you, you’ve been doing your homework!), but do you know the importance of doubling up your SPF with a powerful antioxidant? Let us elaborate…

Antioxidants are substances that our bodies produce naturally, and protect our skin by stopping the process of oxidation. “But what is oxidation?!” we hear you all ask!… Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells within our skin.

If you’ve ever noticed how an apple turns brown once it’s been cut open and left out, you’ll get an understanding of how oxidation works. Our skin works in a similar way, in that when it is openly exposed to things such as pollution, UV rays, chemicals etc, free radicals can form on the skin, which (if not protected by antioxidants) can lead to the death of many cells (boooo). However, antioxidants protect our skin from this process as they neutralise the free radicals that are created within our skin, preventing them from causing damage. Essentially, antioxidants work as the body’s defence system against the damages that free radicals can cause, making them pretty damn special! There are a wide variety of antioxidants however common substances include Vitamin C or E, zinc, copper and beta-carotene.

As mentioned above, antioxidants halt the process of oxidation by protecting our skin from free radicals. This makes the job of antioxidants really important, as constant exposure to free radicals largely contributes to the deterioration of our skins health over time. Sadly, by the age of around 30, our cells no longer eliminate the free radicals as quickly as before and we begin to see things such as fine lines, sun damage and sagging skin creeping in (think of the apple going bad!) Therefore we need to add extra antioxidants into our skin to obtain the maximum benefits of this miracle substance, and keep our skin totally healthy both inside and out!

Fortunately, although our body’s natural production of antioxidants becomes less effective over time, there are a number of specially formulated antioxidant products that we can use to ensure we’re still staying protected from free radicals. Along with wearing a high quality UVA/UVB rated SPF to stop free radicals within the atmosphere from sneaking into our skin, using an antioxidant product within your skincare routine helps to exfoliate the skin, protect collagen and elastin (those things that keep our skin lovely and fresh), and remove dead skin cells. By applying an antioxidant daily into the skin after cleansing but prior to moisturiser and your SPF, you’ll be saying “hello” to beautifully protected skin!

The products we love:

At DestinationSkin our experts dedicate a lot of time to researching and deciding which products and brands are the absolute best for our clients. We’ve selected the below antioxidant rich products from our range of market leading brands, which are all scientifically proven to be hugely beneficial for protecting our skin from free radicals.

Containing actual orange and orange peel extract, this serum is essentially a bottle of Vitamin C; one of the most common antioxidants! This product gently exfoliates the skin to help shed dead skin cells without causing irritation, as well as brightens and improves the structure of your skin by increasing firmness.

Hailed by Elle Magazine as one of the best Vitamin C serum’s on the market, and a brand loved by self-confessed beauty junkie Drew Barrymore, the skin brightening Obagi Professional C Serum provides daily antioxidant protection and comes in a variety of strengths, so you can choose the most suitable product for your skin.

The only formula to contain the same number of vitamins, the Epionce Intense Defence Serum is packed with Vitamins A, B, C, D AND E! This anti-ageing serum stimulates skin rejuvenation to help reverse fine lines, wrinkles, roughness and uneven skin tone while improving firmness, elasticity and texture.

Anti-wrinkle Injections: Do’s and Don’ts

SKIN TREATMENT

Taking the plunge and getting anti-wrinkle injections can often be a daunting experience, and leave you with several questions about what type of clinic or professional to get them from, which areas you need, and any side effects it may have. We want all of our clients and prospective clients to be fully informed and understand the truth when it comes to any treatments they are considering, and carry it as our duty to ensure this is done before they have any treatments with us. Whilst we encourage you to come into clinic to speak with one of our highly experienced team of Medical Injectors, we want to share our most commonly asked questions (they might be yours too!), and give our expert advice when it comes to the treatment that helps you wind back the clock!…

Botox® (Botulinum toxin) is a prescription only substance that is used to relax the facial muscles, prevent excessive sweating, and help with other medical conditions. Known within the industry as the most reputable brand and producer of Botulinum toxin, Botox® is a market leading substance and known for it’s high levels of safety and assurance.

Without going into the nitty-gritty, when Botox® is injected into the skin, it temporarily blocks the signals that are sent to our muscles, to stop them from contracting. This allows the treatment to stop the muscles in specific areas from being over active, which subsequently prevents the formation of lines and wrinkles (hurrah!)

The manufacturer of Botox® confirms in their guidelines that the muscle will remain relaxed for 3-4 months. After this time, the muscle will generate new receptors and slowly regain all movement. However, please bear in mind that this varies from person to person depending on individual factors such as lifestyle, how much exercise you do, whether you smoke etc, therefore it can be more or less than 3-4 months.

At DestinationSkin we are rigorous in our commitment to safety and only use genuine Toxin from the leading manufacturers of Botox®, Allergan. Toxin is a registered prescription drug, and the reason we only use genuine Toxin is because Allergan rigorously tests the product against stringent guidelines. They produce clinical tests to confirm its safety and suitability for this treatment.

Across all of our clinics we have a dedicated team of highly experienced and professional Medical Injectors, all of whom are either Nurses or Doctors that have gone through extensive medical training to achieve the qualifications they have, meaning you are in the safest hands when having your treatments with us. You can read more about all of our wonderful Medical Injectors, their backgrounds and their specialist fields here.

Everyone has a different sensitivity to the feeling of a fine needle in the skin, but most people find that there is only a very mild discomfort associated with having Botox®. The needles used are extremely fine and the treatment is over within minutes.

There is a small risk of bruising, localised bleeding and swelling after you have had treatment. However, this will all subside after the coming hours after treatment. If you do continue to have bruising or swelling and this does not subside within a matter of hours, contact your local GP immediately.

You can have Botox® treatment and continue with your day to day activities. However, we recommend that you do not go to the gym, saunas, steam-rooms or swimming on the same day as treatment; and avoid touching the injection site.

Botox® can be injected into a number of sites on the face according to your desired results, and this can be fully discussed with your Medical Injector during consultation. Popular areas include the forehead and in between the eyebrows to reduce frown lines, the side of the eyes to reduce crow’s feet wrinkles, lip lines to reduce lines and wrinkles left by ageing or smoking, and in the armpits to reduce excessive sweating.

Choosing the right treatment for you: Profhilo® VS Dermal Fillers

SKIN TREATMENT

Understand more about these popular treatments, and get to know which one is right for you.

If you’ve recently been considering facial enhancements to address areas of your appearance that you’d like to improve, you may have come across two popular treatments: Profhilo® and dermal fillers. Whilst both of these injectable treatments can greatly help to improve the appearance of the face, it is important to point out that depending on your desired results, one will be more suited to you than the other. As a brief overview before we go into more detail below, Profhilo® helps to deeply hydrate the skin and give an overall more plump, rejuvenated appearance, whereas dermal fillers are generally administered in particular areas (e.g. cheeks, jawline, chin, nose) to redefine and sculpt the facial structure. To help you better understand what might be right for you, we’ve broken out the main differences and uses for these two treatments; how they work, how long they last, the results they produce, and how much they cost.

What is Profhilo®?

Profhilo® is a revolutionary new treatment designed to provide hydration to the skin. It uses a unique concentration of Hyaluronic Acid, which penetrates deeply through the skin to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin, creating plumper skin. Profhilo® works across the entire face rather than focusing on one area, and is therefore fantastic for those looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and achieve an overall more youthful appearance.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers use a Hyaluronic Acid based substance to plump specific areas of the face, including the cheeks, jawline, lips and chin. This semi-permanent treatment helps to restore areas that have lost volume as age (e.g. under eye bags), address areas of imbalance such as weak chins, and reshape places such as the jawline and nose.

Is Botox® the same as fillers and Profhilo®?

A common misunderstanding is that Botox® does the same thing as fillers and Profhilo®, however it is in fact a very different treatment. Whilst fillers and Profhilo® help to plump the skin and fill certain areas to restore volume loss, Botox® works by temporarily blocking the signals between the muscles and the neurotransmitters that send signals to our brain, so that the formation of lines and wrinkles are prevented. For this reason, Botox® is more commonly chosen by people who wish to prevent or slow down the ageing process. Botox® is most often administered to the forehead, to the side of the eyes (crow’s feet), and in the frown line. Botox® is also a fantastic treatment for helping anyone suffering with excessive sweat. This is known as Hyperhidrosis. Botox® can help in this circumstance by being administered to the armpits, feet and hands to prevent excessive sweating.

Is Profhilo® better than fillers?

Profhilo® is not better than fillers, and vice versa. Each of these treatment options provide different approaches, so there will be one treatment that works best for your skin and your desired outcomes. As outlined above, both treatments have different benefits and target different areas, therefore it is really dependent on your individual desires as to which treatment would be best for you. Generally, if you would like to achieve a more holisitc result that can be seen across your face, Profhilo® is the best treatment for you. However, if you would rather make small changes to certain areas of your face such as your cheeks, dermal fillers are more suitable for you.

How long does Profhilo® last?

The results from Profhilo® treatments will most often last for up to six months, but results can differ from person to person.

How long do dermal filler last?

Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 – 18 months depending on the person.

How much do dermal fillers and Profhilo® cost?

See the cost per treatment for Profhilo® and dermal fillers below.

Juvéderm Dermal (cheek) Fillers: Dermal fillers offer a way to reverse signs of ageing or enhance your features, creating natural lasting results.
Prices From £245

Juvéderm Lip Fillers: An increasingly popular treatment, lip fillers allow you to subtly enhance your lips and create natural looking volume.
Prices From £235

Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping: A quick and simple procedure to correct bumps, soften and improve the profile of the nose.
Prices From £425

Teosyal® Dark Circles under the Eyes: A highly effective treatment to improve and remove the appearance of dark circles and eye bags.
Prices From £475

Profhilo® Skin Hydration & Collagen Boosting Treatment: A highly effective and new treatment great for combating ageing, dull or tired looking skin.
Prices From £395

Hopefully this has helped you decide which of these great treatments will get you the results you’re looking for! At DestinationSkin, our highly-trained experts love to use both Profhilo® and dermal fillers to create enhanced, natural looks so you feel like the best version of yourself. If that’s what you want to achieve. If that’s what you’re looking for, be sure to book in for your consultation today.

SKIN TREATMENT

Chemical skin peels are an effective and low-cost skin treatment designed to improve the appearance of facial skin by evening tone and texture, managing acne and reducing the appearance of fine lines and age spots. This article explains what is involved in a chemical skin peel, how skin peels work and who they work for.
 

What is a chemical skin peel?

Chemical skin peels are a trusted skin-resurfacing treatment where liquids are applied gently to the face to remove dead skin cells and encourage new ones to grow. Chemical peels are usually done on the face, neck and hands but some can be done on other areas of the body, such as the back.
 

What does a chemical skin peel do?

There are a number of different types of chemical skin peels available, which work in slightly different ways to tackle different issues. They all cause the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) to peel off, revealing younger-looking, healthier skin below. Our friendly team of practitioners at DestinationSkin will be able to help advise on the best option for you.
 

How long do the results last?

The results of your skin peel will depend on the kind of peel you have, your skin type and condition and the issues you are tackling with the treatment. Many clients benefit from regular peels every few months.
 

Why choose a chemical skin peel?

Chemical peels are the best low maintenance answer to problem skin. Here are some of the benefits for choosing a chemical peel:

  • Your skin will look brighter, younger and smoother from the very first treatment.
