Wrinkles, Lines and Ageing
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As we get older, collagen production slows down, the skin becomes thinner with less elasticity and we lose subcutaneous fat, which causes the skin to become lined and creased. There are many treatments to help boost collagen production and boost cellular activity.
As we age and collagen and elastin production slow down, the skin and underlying connective tissue can stretch and lose it’s firmness and bounce. Treatment can help to stimulate the collagen production and ultimately firm the skin.
Acne & Oily Skin
Problem skin with oily tendencies can be genetic and can also be caused by environment and the lack of skincare or the wrong skincare choices. The genetics of an abundance of oil glands and a slower exfoliation of cells cannot be reversed, but it can be corrected with appropriate homecare and a regular treatment regime. There can also be a link to internal gut health, and sometimes referral to a medical professional is necessary. An individual assessment will be made as to the underlying causes of the problem, and a treatment program recommended.
Treatments that we believe are helpful, depending on the grade of the acne or the exact problem occurring, are:
Sensitivity / Redness / Rosacea
Redness in the skin and broken/engorged and weakened capillaries can be caused by sun damage, environmental factors, and hormonal changes, but it can also be hereditary. As well as using adequate sun protection, it is important to use skincare that helps to strengthen the capillary walls. There are a range of treatments that can help to desensitise and de-redden the skin, and control rosacea. Skin redness becomes more prominent over time so it is important to start treating it as early as possible. It is also important to remember that all skins are different, so what works for one person does not necessarily work for the next – we are all individuals. An assessment will be made of your skin to determine the appropriate course of action, which could include
Pigmentation and Sun Damage
Pigmentation of the skin is one of the most stubborn skin problems to treat. It needs constant attention, as even once surface pigmentation is removed, any re-exposure to triggers can cause it to re-appear. Pigmentation can be sitting deep under the surface of the skin, and sometimes treatments can cause it to lift and appear worse before it gets better. One thing is for sure, if you have pigmentation under your skin, as you age it will rise to the surface and get worse. Homecare is a must for this condition.We recommend:

Scarring and stretch marks can be treated, but there is no quick-fix. A treatment program is a must as improvements are gradual and depend on the depth, age and type of scar or stretchmark.Treatment modalities include:
