Problem Skin? A Thing Of The Past!

Many of us suffer with problem skin thanks to our genetics, the environment, stress, and a myriad of other factors. For some this might be a mild annoyance, but for others it can have a serious impact on confidence and happiness. So how can we help?

The first step on the journey to improve problem skin is speaking to an expert who can analyse your skin to give a clear picture of what exactly is going on. Start with a consultation using the Visia Skin Analysis system, using up-to-the-minute technology to analyse and measure skin for factors affecting complexion health such as the texture, wrinkles, pores, scars, acne, pigmentation, sun damage and rosacea. Once this is complete, our experts can then devise a personalised skin programme for treatments and products to help improve skin health.

Our incredibly popular Hydrafacial treatment is ideal to improve the health of the skin with an instant and visible impact. Combining six different steps, the Hydrafacial treatment cleanses, extracts, detoxes, hydrates and provides antioxidant protection for the skin to help reduce sun damage and pigmentation, improve the texture and tone of the skin, hydrate dry or dehydrated skin and balance oily and congested skin. It also helps to minimise enlarged pores and stimulates collagen for long term anti-ageing. The selection of targeted Hydrafacial treatments get to work on specific concerns including the Hydrafusion which reduces lines and wrinkles and improves elasticity; Hydrabright which minimises brown spots and pigmentation whilst fighting free radical damage; HydraLight which tackles congested, oily and blemish prone skin. No wonder it is a firm Hollywood favourite.

Carefully selected peels can also target problematic skin. The Jan Marini Glycolic Acid Facial Peel is a gentle skin peel which can be used to lift away dead skin cells, helping to eliminate fine lines and reduce dry, thickened or congested skin. It also helps the skin to rejuvenate and this improves the texture and increases hydration and tone. During your consultation, your therapist will advise which type of peel would best suit your skin.

Also for those with congested skin, we highly recommend our Deep Cleansing Facial which clears skin of blackheads, reduces congestion, brightens and balances the skin. The facial is tailored to your exact skin care needs and includes exfoliation, steam, extractions and a mask. An excellent step on the pathway to healthy, glowing skin.

Rosacea and pigmentation can be improved using Harmony IPL Skin Rejuvenation, which is a non-invasive and no-downtime treatment which can improve the appearance of red and flushed skin due to broken capillaries, and can minimise large pores and pigmentation and sun spots. It can help to brighten dull complexions and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking and feeling fresher and younger.

Much research has gone into the development of a treatment which is at the forefront of medical advances within recent years – the use of stem cells to restore, rejuvenate and repair cells within the body. Our VIP Stem Cell Facial harnesses the power of stem cells to increase collagen and elastic fibre production, reduce inflammation and rosacea, and to promote hydration at a cellular level. The stem cells are sourced ethically with no harm to animals and we expect to see many more treatments with stem cells in the near future.

Light therapy has been proven in over 40 years of research to be highly effective at calming and improving skin conditions, as well as offering a boost to overall well-being. Red light helps to stimulate the natural skin healing and rejuvenation process, causing an improvement in skin tone and texture and repair of photo damage and a reduction in pigmentation. It is perfect for those suffering with rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. Blue light targets inflammatory acne and destroys bacteria that build up in pores. It also helps reduce oil production and reduces inflammation. Infrared light helps the effectivity of both red and blue light and promotes cellular function to really see results quickly.
