As the weather begins to cool and the kids head off back to school after a long *hot* summer, you might start to think about how your skin is looking and feeling and may have a little more time to spare to get some well-deserved skin treatments. At Dr. MediSpa, we offer a wide-range of non-surgical procedures for post-summer skin to combat sun-related damage such as pigmentation, dryness, lines and wrinkles and sun spots. Don’t have any skin concerns? You may still want to pop in, relax and enjoy some ‘you time’.
The skin experts in our Loughton and London clinics, including our medical director Dr. Somji, are delighted to offer some of the most effective and advanced in-clinic treatments on the market. Here are just five of our offerings that we especially recommend as September rolls around.
UV light can have a detrimental effect on the skin, causing the degradation of collagen and elastin, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and premature skin ageing. Fractora™ is a device-led treatment which uses fractional radio-frequency to improve the skin’s tone and texture for a more youthful and smooth appearance.
The most common areas of treatment include the lower and upper eyelids, smile lines, cheeks, mouth, neck, décolleté and the hands. With a course of treatment, the skin is strengthened from within and the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pigmentation is greatly improved.
Laser for Pigmentation
Sun spots are more likely to appear in summer but can last a lifetime if not treated. To give yourself a more even toned skin appearance, a course of laser treatments for pigmentation are available here at Dr. MediSpa.
The treatment works by exposing the area of concern to short pulses of highly-concentrated light, breaking down the melanin which is responsible for causing pigmentation in the skin. The melanin is absorbed by the body and visible areas of pigmentation are reduced. The treatment is fast and highly-effective and most patients can expect to see a significant improvement within 3 to 6 sessions at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks.
Dermal Peels are the ideal treatment to have in the Autumn, as they can reduce pigmentation and sun-damaged caused in summer and you don’t have to worry as much about further sun-exposure as you would during summertime. Dermal peels can address a variety of skin concerns from sun spots, dryness, lines and wrinkles, acne and oily skins as well as ageing skins. A cocktail of specially formulated acids is applied to the skin in measured amounts and for a set amount of time.
Dead skin cells, dirt and debris are removed and cellular turnover is encouraged as well as the regulation of oil production within the skin. You may see results after just one session with us. Depending on your individual skin concern, a course may be required for optimum results; this will all be discussed with you in a no-obligation consultation with one of our skin team.
A minimally invasive, skin rejuvenation technique which we perform using a next-generation handheld device containing tiny needles, micro-needling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin; it also helps the skin to absorb essential ingredients such as vitamin A and C.
Micro-needling can freshen your skin appearance, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improves the appearance of pigmentation, scars and stretch marks. This treatment, also known as skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT) and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) is most effective when offered in a course of treatment spanning 3 to 4 sessions.
Near infrared skin tightening (NIR)
NIR helps to improve the appearance of ageing, sagging and crêpey-looking skin so that it appears firmer and more youthful. NIR works with your body to naturally stimulate the production of collagen without the risks and costs associated with invasive surgery or injectable substances.
NIR is a less aggressive treatment than dermal peels or laser resurfacing and can rejuvenate ageing skin with no pain or downtime. It offers long lasting results and is suitable for all skin types and most areas of the face and body.
