Beautiful skin for Christmas. Cost-effective special skin rejuvenation
options from Coltishall Clinic.
This month we present some quick skin boost options for the festive
season. Our patients / clients have been asking for these so here we
are. Not one, but five great options to choose from. So why wait?
Stainless steel wands which have precisely cut diamond crystals of increasing
level of coarseness on the surface. A gentle vacuum sucks your skin
while the diamonds gently abrade and polish it. This is followed by
a lymphatic massage. Skin resurfacing can reduce the effects of aging
on our skin. Skin resurfacing is a treatment that improves wrinkles,
skin texture and colour by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving
it more supple and vibrant. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic
tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and
firmer appearance. A wonderful alternative or compliment to chemical
peels or laser treatments, the diamond microdermabrasion treatment is
non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment. Diamond
microdermabrasion is suitable for most people.
LED light therapy
L.E.D or light emitting diode technology produces pulses of visible
therapeutic light over many wavelengths that deliver energy to all layers
of the skin. NASA has carried out research on LEDs for healing astronauts.
The key to this technology is the scientific concept that skin cells
can be photoreceptive. The LED wavelengths are completely harmless,
yet effective. The LED succeeds by passing its light through the skin
in order to help promote collagen firmness. The skin naturally appears
smoother, tighter, and more radiant as the collagen becomes more firm.
Most clients notice improvements just after one session but it is generally
recommended to have a course of sessions every 7-14 days. This produces
The light that treats all skin care needs.
IPL and laser. We have a choice of 16 different laser and light devices.
New technology can now treat unsightly leg veins, facial redness, facial
veins, acne and scarring, enlarged pores, sallow complexion, fine lines,
wrinkles and pigmentation. 75% of population between 35 and 65 have
some kind of treatable pigment problem. Intense Pulse Light ( IPL™)
and our lasers use controlled flashes of light to resolve these imperfections
with no downtime. We now have the technology and considerable experience
of using this technology effectively to repair the appearance of damaged
skin, delay and help prevent signs of skin ageing. It works very well
on the face, neck, chest, arms and anywhere on the body. So why wait
when you have laser skin blending and brightening for that flawless
Radiofrequency skin tightening
Extensive surgical facelift is becoming a rarity. Thanks to modern technology,
sun-protection and awareness we find people are maintaining their youthful
looks for longer. We have seen continuous refinements in an exciting
technology called radiofrequency. Earlier machines were unpredictable
with variable results but newer generation machines provide consistent
results. Patients love the treatments because they are comfortable without
pain medication or numbing creams. With this technique, patients see
some instant improvement with increased collagen regeneration and skin
firmness that becomes visible over the next 3 to 4 months and continues
for up to 12 months. It can tighten loose skin on any area of the body
such as tummy and arms and can be used with ultrasound to reduce areas
of localized fat that cannot be improved with diet or exercise.
Injectables and fillers
All these options do not require a recovery time so you can have these
anytime and be party ready the same day. If you have a few days, however
and you require line & wrinkle treatment, lip enhancement or volume
to fill and lift your face then injectables are a great option. Modern
injection treatments and fillers are very safe and provide impressive
results. Remember, we pride ourselves on providing natural looking results
so no one will say you have had botox or fillers-just that you look
