Time to peel!

As we etch our way closer to the beginning of Autumn and further away from the beginning of summer, signs are already starting to show left behind by the lock-down heat wave! The timing was perfect and we were all treated to a gloriously hot premature summer, basking in the garden as lock-down hit and we were stuck at home. But did we all have our skin health at the forefront of our minds? Did we all religiously apply SPF daily to protect our fragile skin? We are going to go with no… after all, we were in the middle of a world wide pandemic and serious crisis!

Although perfectly understandable how some skincare routines and sun protection application may have lapsed during lock-down, we now want to deal with the effects this has had on your skin and help you get back to a happy and healthy complexion.

What damage has been done over the summer lock-down?

  1. Pigmentation: the extreme temperature highs and the time that was suddenly available to spend outside, will have dramatically increased your risk of pigmentation. Pigmentation is visible in the skin in the form of dark brown patches or spots.
  2. Broken Veins: you may have noticed thread veins appear in your cheeks or over your nose? the extreme temperatures, and possibly the increased in-take of alcohol, will cause thread veins to become broken as they make themselves visible at the surface of your skin.

What can we do to treat and get our skin back to it’s healthy state?

As we all slowly get back to some welcomed routine and what we are learning to be our ‘new normal’, now is the best time to get back on top of your skincare and your skin health. In-clinic treatments will help you to fast-track your skin back to health as well as at home products to continue to maintain its healthy and glowing appearance.

  1. Skin Peels: There are various options of skin peels available in-clinic, from gentle to the deep penetrating peels. Depending on what your skin is in need of and how we choose to deliver it will depend on the type of peel you have. This can be discussed with your practitioner to ensure you are opting for the right treatment prior to going ahead. Our AlumierMD Peels have no down-time and deliver instant results. To treat deeper rooted and more challenging skin health problems, you can see our Registered Aesthetic Nurse who can offer the Perfect Peelâ„¢. This peel delivers high medical-grade ingredients deep into the skin. For this reason you will experience down-time with the Perfect Peelâ„¢, as you physically see your unhealthy skin and all it’s pigmentation peel away over the next coming days following the peel!
  2. Veinwave: Veinwave is a treatment that uses thermocoagulation to heat and destroy broken veins visible in the skin. A very fine heated needle penetrates the vein, causing it to breakdown and dry up, naturally disappearing back into the body.
