Here’s how to restore Spring skin

The colourful blooms are out, the days are lighter – and your skin is emerging from its Winter hibernation. You may have found the chill wind and dry, heated rooms have left your skin dry, flaky and red.

Now is the perfect time to give your skin a deep Spring clean.

Here are your best options for clearing out any congestion, refreshing and rejuvenating your skin. Get these done during Spring, and step into Summer with confidence.

Spring skin starts here

Skin analysis

Diagnosing the health and hydration of your skin is an important step in deciding what it may need to say goodbye to Winter and prepare for Summer. During a consultation our practitioners will help determine your skin type, skin conditions, and the best course of recommended at home skin care regimen and/or treatments, personally tailored to your skin.

Exfoliation

Gentle exfoliation is a must, and though you can (and should) do this with home skincare, microdermabrasion is an excellent choice to deeply exfoliate your skin, removing impurities and dead cells. A natural fruit enzyme mask is great for leaving skin fresh, hydrated and clean. For a stronger effect, we offer acid peels, which not only clear away debris and dead cells, but also stimulate collagen and elastin renewal. Combined with a peel, red and blue LED light treatments are also incredibly effective at clearing out any congestion beneath the skin, to treat mild to moderate acne.

Vitamin infusion

A vitamin-rich cream or serum can help brighten and refine your skin. One of the most effective vitamins for skin is Vitamin A (retinoids), which regulates production of new skin cells, and rejuvenates the skin’s surface. Vitamin B works by stimulating natural collagen and your natural hydrator, hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C, a powerhouse antioxidant, protects against aging and enhances sunscreen effectiveness.

Antioxidant infusion

Antioxidants are particularly good for hydration, and we have the perfect treatment to get antioxidants right down into the lower layers of your skin – precisely and effectively as possible. Dermagun is a treatment where antioxidant ingredients are injected into the dermal layer of skin, replenishing it’s natural hydration, and offering protection from oxidative damage and inflammation, which leads to premature ageing. As an added bonus it can also improve your skin’s resistance to UV damage – a great start to prepping for those long Summer beach days.

Turn over a spring skin leaf

Skin rejuvenation – The natural aging process is often accelerated by the wear and tear of weather. Collagen in the dermis is gradually lost, which can contribute to facial lines and wrinkles. IPL is a light based procedure that is excellent for skin colour improvement treating brown pigmentation caused by sun damage, red veins, rosacea and can be used to stimulate collagen.

Laser Genesis*treatment can help restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance. With no downtime, Laser Genesis works by stimulating collagen production and cellular turnover, for a fresh, rejuvenated look.

Your skin Spring-clean is a great time to check your sunscreen expiry dates, and consider upgrading to one with UVA and UVB protection, preferably with zinc oxide. Zinc oxide forms a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. No barrier will completely block UV rays or visible light on its own, so look for sunscreens with other active ingredients such as niacinamide.
