What’s your biggest skin concern? As we get older, we usually find that the answer to that question changes – as teenagers, the problem might be acne or oily skin, by our thirties we are probably more concerned about lines and wrinkles.
But how often do you think about the actual texture of your skin? Many studies have shown that poor skin texture can actually be more ageing even than wrinkles, and certainly we all know that smooth, soft-looking skin is a very attractive feature.
So, if you’re thinking about having an aesthetic treatment to look your best this Valentine’s Day, why not think about something that will improve the texture of your skin? The team here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair have come up with a list of our favourites:
Medical micro-needling – also known as DermaRoller treatment – works by making thousands of tiny puncture wounds all over the surface of the skin. This triggers the body’s self-healing mechanism, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, so that skin becomes plumper, smoother and firmer over time.
Results from medical micro-needling can take about six weeks to become apparent and will then continue to improve over time, so this might not be quite the quick fix you want in order to be ready for Valentine’s Day, but could provide a great long-term solution.
Microdermabrasion is a powerful in-clinic exfoliating treatment, considered by some as the gold standard treatment to improve skin texture. Here at Dr Joney de Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair, we use a diamond tip wand to provide noticeably softer, smoother skin in just one treatment – although a package of three sessions is recommended for long-term results.
Chemical facial peels
A facial peel is a great way to provide subtle rejuvenation and smoother skin, as it peels away the top layer of skin, revealing the new, softer skin beneath.
Here at our London aesthetic clinic, we offer three depths of peel and can tailor the treatment to your needs.
