Skin treatments for Men and Women
11 Mar 2012
As the days get longer and the thermometer inches ever higher, one thing is for certain -summer is on the way! Along with lazy days at the beach, and long nights sipping iced drinks in the garden; summer means digging the vests, t-shirts and shorts from the back of the wardrobe.
If you suffer from rough, irritated or painful skin conditions, pulling on your summer clothes can be a bit of a daunting thought. When you don't feel absolutely confident, the last thing you want to do is wear a short-sleeved shirt or mini skirt. But not only is covering up in the heat uncomfortable, it can actually make skin difficulties worse.
Luckily, you can get a smooth start to summer with sk:n, as there are several treatments that can help to give you a complexion you'll be proud to show off.
Here's a quick guide to some of the options available at sk:n clinics that are suitable for men and women and will ensure that you are summer ready:
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal treatments are a permanent way to get rid of thick, dark, stubborn and unwanted hair from almost any part of the body. Concentrated light is used to stop growth at the follicles, with much as 95 per cent of targeted hair being removed.
Fraxel is a range of options that use laser treatment to resurface the skin. They work by stimulating the collagen and elastin in the dermis, in order to plump and refine the look of the surface of the skin. With three different levels of treatment, almost everyone can find a Fraxel treatment to suit their needs.
Perfect for everything from wrinkles and blemishes to acne scars, laser resurfacing directs short, concentrated, pulsating beams of light at uneven skin, removing the imperfections layer by layer.
Chemical peels, also known as chemexfoliation and derma-peeling, use chemical solutions to 'peel' off layers of the epidermis, to make it appear more even.
