1. Profhilo®

Profhilo® is a type of injectable rejuvenation treatment, and unlike dermal fillers it is not designed to add volume to the skin, or restrict movement in the facial muscles. Instead, this anti-ageing hydration treatment contains high levels of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring compound which helps improve tone, texture and elasticity.


Who is Profhilo® for?

As we age, the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin naturally starts to drop, which causes the skin to lose its natural firmness and elasticity. Most people begin to see the effects of hyaluronic acid depletion as they reach their 30s – and Profhilo® is the perfect treatment for anyone looking to counteract this.


Where can Profhilo® be used?

Profhilo® is usually administered into the skin in five key areas (when administered to the face): the tops of cheeks, side of the face, lines around the mouth, nasolabial folds and laughter lines. It can also be used to improve the appearance of the skin around the neck, chest and décolletage.


Your Profhilo® consultation: what to expect

Your Profhilo® consultation will be with a doctor or nurse prescriber who will assess your needs, suitability and determine the most appropriate form of treatment. During your consultation they will be able to answer any questions you may have about your skin concerns and give you personalised advice. If the decision is taken to proceed with the treatment, they will be able to carry out the treatment in-clinic. All of our clinics are monitored by the Care Quality Commission and the equivalent in Scotland (HIS) and Wales (HIW), for your safety and peace of mind.

3. Obagi® Radiance Peel

If you struggle with breakouts and pigmentation, this peel could be what you need to get clearer skin! Here’s what the Obagi® Radiance Peel does:

  • Targets deeply clogged pores to clear acne
  • Exfoliates the skin to remove surface damage such as sun spots and pigmentation
  • Tightens skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

What is the Obagi® Radiance Peel?

The Obagi Radiance Peel is a Salicylic Acid based peel, which works to decongest, brighten and smooth the texture of the skin. By targeting spots at the very source, as well as providing surface exfoliation, this peel is able to target your deeply clogged pores and reduce any post-inflammatory spots that have been left by breakouts, so it’s a great treatment if you suffer from acne-prone skin. Also ideal for those with surface sun-damage, the Salicylic Acid within this peel will help you shed sun spots and areas of pigmentation to reveal a brighter, newly refreshed complexion.


How does the Obagi Radiance Peel work?

The active ingredient in this peel is Salicylic Acid –which is an oil-soluble ingredient, which means it’ll get deep into your pores, clean them out and improve your overall complexion. Every spot starts with a blackhead. This peel is so effective, especially at treating acne, because it tackles the problem at its origin. By starving the acne this peel removes blackheads, deep-cleanses pores and provides an anti-bacterial action.

The Obagi Radiance Peel has been created by Obagi to work on decongesting, brightening and smoothing the skin for texture. It contains 20% Salicylic Acid, 2% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactic Acid.

4. Derma Roller Treatment

There are many reasons why clients from Croydon, West Wickham and the surrounding areas choose to have Dermaroller:

  • To reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and decolletage
  • Rejuvenate hands and minimise signs of ageing
  • Revitalise aged and sun-damaged skin
  • Reduces acne scarring
  • The removal of stretch marks

The Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ utilises sterile single-use medical devices. Your Nurse/ Aesthetic Practitioner will use a Dermaroller medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The column will close rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day.

After the procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

JUVEDERM® VOLITE TREATMENT

5. What is Juvederm® Volite?

Juvederm® Volite is an anti-aging injectable product specifically designed to improve the condition of the skin. Unlike typical dermal fillers, Volite is a skin conditioning Hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that delivers improvements in skin smoothness, hydration and elasticity. Juvederm® Volite aims to deliver results that last and eliminate the need for multiple treatments.

The treatment is suitable for:

  • Face – requires 2 ml of Volite
  • Neck – requires 2 ml of Volite
  • Décolletage – requires 2 ml of Volite
  • Back of hands – requires 1 ml of Volite deeply clogged pores to clear acne

What Is Juvederm® Volite Sage?

As we mentioned above, the main element of Juvederm® Volite is Hyaluronic acid which is naturally present in our skin, that is why allergy or skin tests are not required. Additionally, HA completely gets broken down by the body in approximately 12 months, leaving behind no trace of the curing. According to this, it is an absolutely safe treatment but like most medical skin procedures.
