Non-invasive treatments to improve your skin's appearance
14 Jul 2012
sk:n clinics offers treatments that are suitable for anyone looking to improve their physical appearance without going under the knife; a microdermabrasion facial or chemical peel are rejuvenating treatments that will smooth the skin and make it appear fresher and more youthful.
The microdermabrasion facial is not merely for anti-ageing results however and can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including acne scars, fine lines, stretch marks, dry and flaky skin, open pores and sun damage. The other alternative is to try a skin peel whose results work in similar way although the procedure is slightly different.
The former works by applying micro crystals on a spinning disc across the face, removing superficial skin cells. It's a non-invasive procedure and so will not cause pain or discomfort. The face needs to be completely dry before treatment as otherwise the moisture from the face will prevent the disc and microcrystals from moving and therefore working properly.
A skin peel works by applying chemicals to the top layer of the skin with the purpose of removing the top layer of cells; the acid in the peel then enters the skin and helps removes the skin cells from within. It's incredibly gentle and can even be used around the mouth and the eyes. The idea of the skin peel is to encourage skin's new growth and therefore regenerating the appearance of your face.
Both are without after effects although you may experience a bit of redness, and also slight swelling in the case of the skin peel. These will go down after a day or two however and make up can be applied to the face straight after the procedures.
