sk:n clinics reveals how to get perfectly cleansed skin
01 Apr 2012
It's easy to forget that our skin is always on show. Our face withstands the rigours of life day in, day out, and often we'll barely hear a peep out of it. At other times, however, pollution, dirt and the ever-changing British weather can take a toll on our greatest natural asset - our complexion.
If your skin looks dull, is showing signs of fatigue, ageing and sun damage or is breaking out in distressing conditions such as acne or rosacea, it can really knock your confidence. But don't despair, as there are a range of treatments at sk:n clinics that can help you rejuvenate your complexion and boost your beauty.
One of the most popular options for perfectly cleansed skin is a skin peel. Also known as chemical peels, these treatments remove the upper layer of cells or epidermis and along with it, imperfections such as fine lines, sun spots, mild acne scarring and general dirt and debris that blocks pores.
Depending on the treatment, a chemical solution is generally applied to the face, lifting the veil from your tired complexion and promoting healing of the fresh skin cells beneath. The skin's collagen production is also stimulated, giving excellent results. It is non-invasive and suitable for a wide range of common complaints, and each treatment is tailored to your specific requirements.
Another alternative for worn-out skin is microdermabrasion. The results are similar to a skin peel, removing dead and damaged cells from the surface of your complexion and supporting your skin's natural healing process, but are achieved in a different way.
Jets of fine sand are blasted across the surface of the skin, creating an exfoliating effect and getting rid of blockages, imperfections and uneven pigmentation. There are a range of different microdermabrasion treatments, which mean there is likely to be one that meets your personal needs.
You can feel confident in approaching a practitioner for a specialist consultation, where they will tell you exactly what treatments suit you.
