Dewy Skin In A Hurry

Dewy skin is the biggest skincare trend for 2019,

But we have always believed that radiant, dewy skin is the key to looking brighter, fresher and younger.

Many of our treatments and products aim to promote fresh, dewy skin among other benefits and our latest one really takes this to the next level!

Dehydration, whether short-term or long-standing is the number one cause of dull, sluggish skin.

Whether you are temporarily dehydrated due to weather, illness or travel, or if you have a longer-term dehydration issue from lifestyle factors or using inappropriate skincare products, we have a solution for you with our new SmartMeso suite of treatments.

Not a facial, yet still a natural, gentle treatment with little downtime, this is perfect for fast, visible results that last long beyond those of traditional hydrating or revitalising facials. It’s skincare, but not as we know it!

Infusing hydrating hyaluronic acid and revitalising vitamin C directly into the deep layers of the epidermis using a combined technology of mesotherapy, microneedling and electroporation, for the first time we can get ingredients directly to the lower epidermis where they can work from the inside out.

In this way, no ‘goodness’ of the ingredients is sacrificed to the traditional way of having to pass first through the upper epidermis which will break down molecules and take the first usefulness from ingredients, leaving less for the lower layers to utilise.

It is in the lower layers that hyaluronic acid is naturally made and stored, and it is here that the first signs of depleted hyaluronic acid show as fine lines, thinning skin and loss of plumpness or springiness on the skin’s surface.

What results can you expect?

  • Super-hydrated skin that glows with dewy radiance
  • Dehydration lines eliminated on cheeks
  • Visible plumping of fine lines around the eyes
  • Younger overall appearance
  • Improved texture – smooth skin

From a single session for a quick pick-me-up on skin that is running a little dull, dry or sluggish to intensive courses of six weekly treatments for deeper issues that need more work, we can craft a bespoke Micro-Infusion skin revitalising treatment for you.

Working underneath the epidermis to moisturise, hydrate and revitalise much deeper than traditional products or facials can reach, this is skincare – for the inside.

Skin Peels – the lowdown

Skin peels, also known as acid peels or chemical peels, remain one of the most asked-about treatments in the skincare world.

Probably due to the amount of media exposure given to the many, many types of peel on the market.

It seems to me like every month there is some buzz about a new peel that gets people all fired up and the queries come in!

The first thing to know is that there is rarely a ‘new‘ peel on the market. There are some great ingredients that have been available for a long time with names that you will be familiar with such as lactic acid, glycolic acid or salicylic acid.

All of which are great tools when used correctly. Generally a new trendy peel that is getting media attention will either be a new brand with great marketing but nothing new to add to the tried and true peels currently available, or a new way of combining existing ingredients to create a specific outcome.

The fact is that there are great peels already available to professional skin therapists and the rest is just repackaging to satisfy the never-ending thirst for the next, newest thing being driven by our consumerist society!

Of course, every now and then, something new does come along but it’s not very often and I will always bring you the latest updates when that does happen!

The more interesting aspect of advancement in peel therapies is when new and subtle variations in ingredient combination or enhanced application techniques are developed that give us therapists the opportunity to custom-prescribe, apply and enhance traditional peels.

This has benefits for the client including things like more comfortable or faster treatments, custom peel courses that evolve as your skin does so that each treatment is blended based on the results of the last, less downtime from treatment and ultimately an enhanced experience in terms of the process and the results.

Peels are not the answer to every skin issue, but they are a great tool if you are looking to correct any texture issues from mild congestion all the way through to deep acne. They are also only as good as your commitment!

To see results, particularly on acne, you MUST have your peels when recommended and use the appropriate home-care as prescribed to get full results.

If you are curious about whether a peel or course of peels are right for your skin just get in touch with us and we will be happy to advise you.
