At Platinum Face and Body Clinic, we treat an array of skin care concerns. Whether we are treating the symptoms of pigmentation and melasma, acne and scarring, premature ageing or rosacea and devitalised skin, it is important, to be using the correct home care in conjunction with in clinic treatments to achieve optimum results and to maintain healthy functioning skin.
Not doing so, will only compromise your results both with your skin rejuvenation treatments and any other treatments you may be receiving in clinic, such as cosmetic injectables, threads and dermal fillers.
Here, we will explain why it’s necessary to not only have regular skin treatments but why it’s important to have at least two skin care courses per year with monthly maintenance in between.
From the ages of 25, we begin to lose up to 2% of our collagen per year. Collagen is found naturally in our skin. Collagen's main purpose is to help give our skin strength and elasticity, which in turn keeps us looking young. As we age, our collagen fibres begin to weaken and breakdown, our skin starts to sag and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. Our skin also naturally sheds or exfoliates, which is why our skin looks so smooth and soft. Unfortunately, this process of exfoliation slows down considerably as we age and this is another reason why our skin develops fine lines and wrinkles, we start to notice uneven skin colour and pigmentation or weakened red capillaries and our skin begins to sag.
Thankfully, we can maintain our skin's elasticity and health and a higher collagen production and also speed up the exfoliation process so that our skin cells start functioning and turning over at a faster pace, giving our skin rejuvenation.
The most effective way to obtain healthy skin is to use active ingredients on a daily basis and receive regular in clinic treatments.
Why do we recommend you have at least two courses a year and monthly maintenance treatments?
No matter what skin condition we are treating, whether it be, acne, melasma or pigmentation, sun damage, ageing or rosacea, scarring or stretch marks, we are constantly exposed to intrinsic and extrinsic factors that will continue to degrade our skin barrier and zap our skin of moisture. Exposure to UV radiation, and different medications also has an effect on our skin. As does unhealthy foods, stress, and lack of sleep!
In clinic treatments not only slows down premature ageing but they also aid in the prevention of further skin concerns before they become a problem.
Our simple, effective tip for you is to aim to have at least two courses of skin rejuvenation treatments each year and maintain your skins health by having regular treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.
Following an at home skin care routine with biomemetic ingredients allows absorption of active vitamins, minerals, and peptides that train your skin to function at a healthy level and achieves exceptional results faster. AHA's assist the skin to turn over or exfoliate at a faster rate which aides the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the epidermal layers.
