Your skin is the biggest giveaway of your age; not wrinkles

IPL for redness and skin discolouration

 

As we age, we often think it's fine lines and wrinkles that we need to reduce to maintain a youthful look. But this isn't always the case!

Other common skin concerns can have an ageing effect on our skin and be the real giveaway of our age! Read below to find out what could be making you look older than you are. 

AGE SPOTS, DISCOLOURATION AND DARK PATCHES

Environmental and sun damage is a common factor that can add years to our age. This shows itself in pigmentation, age spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone. And although it may not look particularly sunny outside, the harmful UVA rays (the ageing rays) are still out in force!

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) can help reduce the signs of sun damage for a more youthful, refreshed look. It works by pulsing high energy light beams through the skin to target pigmentation and age spots, which then flake away leaving you with a more even skin tone. 

FACIAL REDNESS

Redness and rosacea are a common skin concern which can make our skin appear aged and unhealthy.  As we age, little red veins and broken capillaries can start to appear around our nose and cheeks. IPL for redness is an advanced solution to target the problem area. Conditioning Treatments, such as Skincare Infusion help to reduce skin redness; using sound waves to penetrate products deep within the dermal layer for reduced redness, optimal hydration and lasting results.

SCARRING

Whether it’s from acne in your teens or environmental damage, facial scarring can be a big giveaway of your age and skin health. Microneedling is one of our most popular and effective treatments for improving the appearance of scars and skin texture.

Microneedling involves using tiny needles to prick the skin. When our skin is damaged, it produces collagen tissue, which is stronger, and firmer than before. Over a course of treatments collagen fibers are strengthened and the skin becomes stronger, smoother, and firmer, with improved texture.

UNEVEN SKIN TEXTURE

Lack of skin smoothness; rough, dry patches and enlarged pores can be a major tell-tale sign of ageing. Skin hydration and environmental factors are common causes along with excess dead skin cells building on the skin’s surface.

Conditioning Treatments, such as our signature Detox Treatment is ideal for combating uneven texture by resurfacing the skin with advanced exfoliation. This skin resurfacing process removes dead skin cells and encourages circulation to treated skin, promoting smoother and healthier skin.
