Our skin is something of a hero. Protecting our insides from infection, punctures, and a multitude of other potential hazards, most of us don’t treat our skin with the tender loving care that it deserves. With harsh soaps, sun damage, scratches, acne, over-exfoliation, not exfoliating enough, extremes of weather, we only add to the daily battles that our skin must go through to remain strong, balanced, and fully functioning.
When we aren’t taking care of our skin, we know it. Loss of luminosity and elasticity, breakouts, the appearance of lines and wrinkles, dry and irritated skin are all indications that we need to step up with our skincare. Of course, some of these signs belong to the natural ageing process – but that doesn’t mean we need to give in to them, especially when they’re affecting our self-esteem. Fortunately, at KP Aesthetics in Hale, Altrincham, I deliver a wide range of aesthetic treatments which can effectively restore our skin to its happy place with all of the brightness, tightness, and smoothness, to have us looking and feeling fabulous. Let’s take a look at some of the most-loved here.
Particularly good for treating: scars, ageing skin
Dermapen or skin needling works using the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. It is a really versatile aesthetic treatment since it can be easily tailored to different parts of the skin, including delicate areas such as those around the eyes. The Dermapen is made up of micro-needles that methodically make tiny holes in the surface of the skin. This process causes the release of growth factors, the breakdown of old collagen and the production of new collagen. In doing so, the Dermapen causes the skin to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin with new skin cells.
Particularly good for treating: signs of ageing around eyes, on the neck and hands
The visible signs of ageing skin are caused by dehydration, free-radical damage, and the reduction of collagen production. Xela Rederm combats each of these with its solution of hyaluronic acid and succinic acid. Together these active ingredients rehydrate the skin and stimulate collagen production. You can expect a reduction in lines and wrinkles, greater elasticity and luminosity of the skin, and an overall more youthful appearance.
Particularly good for treating: acne, scarring, ageing skin, pigmentation After a lifetime of battling everything that is thrown at our skin, chemical peels are a fantastic way to exfoliate, resurface, and remodel the skin. Whether you are fighting against acne, the visible signs of ageing, a skin condition, or the general wear and tear of everyday life, a chemical peel can be the answer to your skincare prayers. With a range of peels available to my patients, we can decide which will work best for your skin during your initial consultation.
