Five Common Skin Concerns & Solutions
What are your skin concerns? We cover five of the most common.
Chasing the glow, troubles with acne, sagging skin, capillaries and deep blackheads. We give you our solutions, prevention and maintenance techniques for the five of the skin concerns that frustrate the most…
From glass to glow, skincare has had a major boost this year; with natural, no-make up looks taking over and caked on makeup taking a back seat.
Skincare trends have been plaguing our Instagrams – rubber masks, pig collagen, even placenta tablets, you name it – it’s on the market. The jury is still out if these trends actually deliver, but why beat around the bush; treatments like The Hollywood Laser Peel give you beautiful glowing skin, with no downtime.
Hollywood Laser Peel
Glow in an instant with this no-downtime peel; perfect for when you need soft, dewy skin and don’t have time to wait for peels, or the downtime associated with other treatments – from clinic to party.
Just because you’ve made it through your teens, doesn’t mean you’ve made it through acne.
Genetics play a role, but so does the way we treat our skin. Our skin is the body’s largest organ and therefore can be a huge reflection of our lifestyle. Water and a healthy diet, free of cigarettes and alcohol, can improve your skin’s appearance.
Margaret Mitchell, luxury beauty retailer Space NK’s buying directory, recently spoke to byrdie.com to consider some of the other causal factors of adult acne, “With the boom in makeup, people are seeing their skin more clogged”
Include ‘breathing’ or makeup free days in your week, naked skin is in; and you know that old adage is true, you should always take off your makeup before bed.
Sometimes, regardless of how good your diet is, how many creams you have purchased and how religious you are with a skincare routine, acne can still be an issue.
At SKYN®, our talent can assist you on your journey. As everyone is different, we can assess and recommend a treatment plan that targets your specific concerns and is suitable for your skin type; so you can see results.
Some treatments we recommend for adult acne include the Hollywood Laser Peel and Meso Dermal Peels
Hollywood Laser Peel
The Hollywood Peel isn’t just suitable for getting that glow, it can assist with enlarged pores and active acne breakouts.
Advanced Dermal peels, such as the Modified Jessners Peel offer a special combination of acids (including salicylic and citric acid) to treat a multitude of problems, including cystic acne, oiliness and discolouration. Expect some flaking/peeling for a period of 3 to 7 days.
Sun, squeezing, alcohol, heat, spicy food, stress, makeup… If you’re prone to redness or broken capillaries, you will understand that the source of triggers are fairly volatile.
The tone of the skin can be dramatically compromised when it’s constantly flaring up, or an area of frustration when the smallest trauma causes those tiny little broken capillaries.
This is an extremely common problem, with the assistance of Solari™ you can begin your journey of clear, even toned skin.
Solari™ IPL Spot Treatment
A fairly cost effective solution for broken capillaries is spot treatments. Many clients can see results after just one session, while others may need to return. Depending on the size, prices start from $20.00.
Solari™ IPL Skin Rejuvenation
The number one solution for rosacea is the Solari™ IPL device, which users light not laser to penetrate the skin, to significantly restore, rejuvenate and repair.
As we age, we begin to lose the elastin and collagen that keep our skin firm and plump. The downside of this is the face can lose volume, and appear saggy.
This can also occur prematurely due to lifestyle factors such as smoking, repetitive facial expressions, sun exposure or even the way we sleep.
According to LiveStrong, although slack skin is an inevitable part of ageing, there are a few things you can do to try and prevent it, including drinking plenty of water and exfoliating and moisturising as a preventative tool.
At SKYN® we have a range of treatments that can bring sagging skin back to life, such as Dermal Fillers, Angel Preventative Ageing therapy or Skin Boosters.
Fillers, such as cheek fillers; can restore a youthful vibe, by replenishing volume which creates a full, high cheek to frame the face.
Montclair, NJ dermatologist Jeanine B. Downie explains, “The most frequent requests I receive from women are for …a solution for sagging cheeks. … Related to an overall deflation of the face, which can make patients look up to 10 years older” New Beauty.
Essentially injectable skincare. While Dermal Fillers replace volume; Skin Boosters improve collagen and elasticity from deep inside the skin, they can also be combined with dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxers.
Angel Preventative Ageing therapy
The infamous ‘vampire’ facial. It might go against your intuition to be slathering your own blood all over your face, however, our blood contains platelets, cells in the blood that generate collagen, tissue and elastin.
Preventative Ageing therapy restores these platelets, causing the skin to naturally rebuild where volume has been lost; and because it’s your own blood that is being used, there’s no risk of allergy or an immune reaction.
It’s fairly coherent that most people struggle with blackheads. Blackheads are hair follicles that have been clogged up, then oxidised; which causes them surface to darken, making them visible.
Some of the most common areas blackheads occur are on the nose and chin.
The best treatment to clear out blackheads is our medical microdermabrasion, or hydrabrasion. Additionally, we also offer extractions to ensure you don’t damage your skin, or exasperate the problem via picking and squeezing.
At SKYN® we offer a microdermabrasion treatment that simultaneously vacuums out the dirt from your pores, exfoliates the skin and deeply cleans the pores with water. Exfoliants at home are effective, however, Hydrabrasion is much deeper; we liken it to getting your carpets professionally cleaned.
