Sometimes I think that people feel that all we do is inflict pain so today I want to concentrate on those things which are all together more pleasant, more gentle, more bearable, but still effective.
So my day is not just filled with laser resurfacing, liposuction and skin tightening, We do a fair amount of gentler stuff too such as simple microdermabrasion and omnilux treatments. IPL can offer gentle improvements to photo damaged skin. We also offer our very own unique facial which is proving very popular as well as highly beneficial.
Microdermabrasion involves using a diamond studded probe with gentle vacuum to carefully scrape of a thin layer of the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This layer is often responsible for the slightly grey and lack lustre appearance of the skin especially if too much of the wrong sort of moisturizer is used. Removing this thin layer stimulates and refreshes the underlying tissues and brings an inner glow to this skin.
Omnilux involves the use of specialised LED arrays which emit a particular frequency of light which is know to stimulate fibroblast regeneration and improve collagen deposition in the skin. This treatment can often be very beneficial and very pleasant too. I have had the occasional one myself too as it is my machine! (The girls do report that I have occasionally been known to fall asleep under the omnilux machine and snoring has also been mentioned……)
IPL is another technique which again uses a specialized light source to gently rejuvenate skin it is a little more uncomfortable than the omnilux and I doubt you will fall asleep but it certainly works well. In fact a combination of the two can help a lot.
Unfortunately I cannot tell you a lot about our new special facial as it uses a lot of proprietary technology to be truly unique to our clinic. All I can really tell you is our patients love it and keep coming back for more. Every little bit helps.
So it is possible to achieve improvement in the skin with simple, cost effective and pleasant treatments. It doesn’t always have to hurt…..
