Dehydrated/Dry Skin

Treatment Options

Dry and dehydrated skin can present itself in several ways like dullness, flaky skin and sensitivity. When the skin is unable to seal in moisture, it becomes easier for irritants and bacteria to interfere with the skin, and the repair barrier becomes compromised. As a result, ongoing treatment may be required to not only nourish and hydrate, but also to restore the skin’s protective barrier to encourage your skin to function more efficiently.

Meostherapy

Mesotherapy

When the skin’s repair barrier is broken down, it can allow irritants into the skin, providing more opportunities for further damage and premature ageing. One way to help rebuild the skin’s protective barrier is to restore its hydration and antioxidant levels.

Mesotherapy involves injecting the skin with an infusion of hyaluronic acid and vitamins that are essential for moisturisation, to restore your skin’s protective barrier, as well as replenish lost moisture and hydration within the skin.

Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that delivers a custom combination of skin-enhancing ingredients to your complexion.

During your consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns to determine which formulation the nurse will administer through your Mesotherapy treatment. It will usually contain a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamins and amino acids.

Before your treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin.

Through a series of fine injections, a bespoke blend of peptides, growth factors and antioxidants are delivered into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin) from between 1-4mm beneath your skin to improve skin quality and function.

This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour.

The skin’s barrier function plays a vital role in protecting your skin from environmental aggressors such as pollutants, UV damage and irritants. When working optimally, your skin counteracts the harmful free radical damage that scavenges your healthy skin cells. However, with natural ageing, sun damage and other external forces, your skin cell barrier function weakens.

Lipids made up of cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acid form the barrier to prevent microrganisms and irritants entering the skin and protect it from Transepidermal water loss. When the skin barrier is weak, the skin can become dry, irritated and inflamed.

Mesotherapy is one way to encourage the restoration of your skin cell barrier function and restore your natural moisturising factors, to help bring your skin back to optimal health.

With over 60 different ingredient combinations, we can adapt the Mesotherapy to your skin’s needs. With an efficient transportation system and a surge in skin-loving ingredients, skin cell function improves, and the skin repair barrier becomes more resilient to environmental aggressors and other ageing factors.

Generally, a patient will need around ten sessions to see optimal results. The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s skin concerns.

These sessions are usually weekly for the first month, every two weeks over the second month, and sporadically from then onwards depending on how your skin responds to treatment.

Dermal Filler

Volite

Though one of the most beneficial ingredients for hydrating the skin is hyaluronic acid, the skin has difficulty retaining it when applied topically since for it to be absorbed; the hyaluronic acid must be low molecular weight. Through vycross technology, Volite injections can ensure hyaluronic acid is delivered to both the epidermis and the dermis to restore your moisture levels from the inside out. The injectable was explicitly designed to improve the skin’s quality through hydrating, smoothing and increasing the elasticity of the skin.

The treatment uses vycross technology that binds the hyaluronic acid, giving it greater malleability and a more natural appearance than dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic acid needs to maintain a very low molecular weight in order to be able to efficiently penetrate the dermis, and unfortunately, this is very hard to track within topical skincare. With so much uncertainty over how deep the hyaluronic acid can actually penetrate the skin topically, it’s more effective to inject it.

You can expect to see results within 1-2 weeks.

Celestial Black Diamond Facial

Black Diamond Facial

Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that enables deeper penetration of essential antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to counteract wrinkle-causing free radicals and keep the skin supple. This vitamin infusion treatment will rejuvenate the face and décolletage area by encouraging new collagen production and healthier, younger-looking skin with softened lines.

  • Age spots
  • Pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Illumination and brightness
  • Tighter and firmer skin
  • More refined jawline
  • Reduced naso lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines
  • Reduced puffiness and double chin

Firstly, the skin is double cleansed to remove impurities, debris and oil from clogged pores. This gentle step purifies the skin and restores your skin’s pH levels while brightening the complexion and targeting age and sun-spots. The skin is then blotted down with an energising toner to balance and calm the complexion and neutralise free radical damage.

Nano-particles of black diamonds incorporated within the luxury 111SKIN products create a delivery system to combat crow’s feet, forehead lines naso lines. This allows the active ingredients to travel to the deeper levels of the dermis to stimulate collagen type I and III to fight wrinkles and crepiness.

The black diamond serum and emulsion is then evenly spread over the face and neck with lifting and whipping massage techniques stimulate circulation, lifting the skin. This is followed by the application of an eye, neck and facial treatment mask to regulate the skin’s temperature, help repair skin barrier, improve texture, and fight lines. Lastly, the black diamond cream and eye cream is applied to brighten and illuminate the skin.

Approximately 60 mins.

Lighfinity Facial

Lightfinity Facial

The skin’s repair barrier when strong and healthy can help prevent your skin from premature ageing, keep bacteria at bay, and slow down free radical damage. Not only this but when it is working effectively, it will help your skin to retain as much moisture as possible, keeping your skin looking young and supple. The Lightfinity facial uses phototherapy to optimise skin cell performance and encourage skin health.

  • Acne scarring and other types of wounds
  • Dry and dull skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Rough texture
  • Inflammation and skin conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Acne
  • Stimulates collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Combats dullness
  • Increases hydration
  • Improves hyperpigmentation, age spots and sun damage
  • Reduces inflammation and symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions
  • Improves tone and texture of the skin
  • Improves acne scarring and accelerates wound healing
  • Boosts skin health
  • Eases muscle and joint pains and spasms
  • Reduces bacteria associated with acne

Celluma LED light therapy works to calm redness and inflammation by triggering the body’s natural repair mechanisms. The treatment promotes overall skin health by improving circulation and boosts your skincare regime by allowing greater absorption of skincare ingredients.

Phototherapy can alter biological activity to encourage skin cells to improve their performance and efficiency- this process can promote the body’s healing mechanisms to speed up tissue repair and fortify the skin’s epidermal barrier. In turn, this can improve inflammatory skin conditions (and their symptoms) like psoriasis and dermatitis.

LED light therapy can also kill acne bacteria to help reduce acne, while fibroblast activity synthesises collagen production to improve acne scars (and other wounds) and skin texture.

Approximately 1 hour.
