Many things cause our skin to age. Some things we cannot do anything about but others we can influence. For instance, sun protection is essential and dermatologists agree that using sunscreen every day can help premature ageing skin. The natural ageing process (intrinsic ageing) causes our skin to lose its collagen content changing the skin’s volume, texture, elasticity with the skin becoming thinner and drier. With time, visible lines appear on our faces. Environmental factors and lifestyle choices can cause the skin to age prematurely but by taking some preventative actions we can slow the effects of this type of ageing.
Minimise skin damage and maximize rejuvenation
Our dermatologists and medical aestheticians can recommend skincare products like moisturizers with a high SPF that you can use all year based on your individual skin type and requirements. Using an effective product to screen your skin from the sun every day and avoid getting a tan which ages your skin every time you get one. Try self-tanning products instead. Smoking speeds up skin ageing causing wrinkles and poor complexion and alcohol dehydrates the skin. A good, healthy balanced diet will help your overall health and skin. Exercise in moderation will improve circulation and boost your immune system.
Our dermatologists and medical aestheticians can recommend a skin care regime to carefully cleanse and moisturise you face to prevent skin irritations and problems occurring while hydrating your skin to keep its youthful appearance. We have a range of medical grade facials which are highly effective and will be chosen carefully for you depending on your skin type and needs and will improve the health appearance of your skin. The treatments can include microdermabrasion exfoliation, peels, extractions and treatments for deep hydration of the skin all chosen depending on your skin’s needs. After carefully assessing your aesthetic and medical history and performing a thorough clinical examination they can produce a holistic, bespoke skin care programme for you to maximize the benefits of your in clinic treatments and maintain long lasting results.
