3 treatments to boost hydration

Have you been guilty of googling “how to boost skin hydration?” well now we have the answers for you with these top 3 treatments to restore radiance and achieve a glowing complexion.  

Hydration is essential to keep your skin glowing, plump and looking refreshed. How hydrated your skin is comes down to how much hyaluronic acid is in your skin. Hyaluronic acid holds water that makes your complexion appear healthier and more vibrant.  

Unfortunately, there is only so much that skin care products can do to hydrate your skin on a surface level and that is often why we are told to drink more water, to nourish your skin from the inside out. While this is good advice (and should be followed), there are some great treatments that can significantly boost skin hydration: 

Dermapen Skin Needling 

This  innovative, non-invasive skin needling treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin. It works by penetrating the top layers of the skin with micro-needles that create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation that reduces wrinkles, scarring, and other imperfections, while improving skin texture, tone and hydration.  The application of intense moisturisers will have your skin more radiant that ever wishing you discovered this cutting-edge treatment sooner.   

Skinboosters

If you are looking for the ultimate level of hydration, then look no further than Skinboosters! 

Skinboosters are often referred to as the lunchtime hydration treatment due to their efficient ability to inject hydration back into your skin. They are a form dermal filler product without the molecules that lift, enhance and restore volume to your skin and are a way of naturally restoring quality from within. Made up of a slow releasing hyaluronic acid (HA) the product is presented in a liquid gel form that binds and holds the water together, thereby hydrating the skin, maintain a fresh, firm and healthy appearance.  

Facials 

Facials are perfect for those who have congested and dehydrated skin, open pores or for anyone wanting a softer, smoother, more youthful look. We offer a range of facials and our team will tailor the design to work with your skin’s needs, whether that’s reducing blackheads and pimples, or inflammation and redness. From sun damaged skin to overall rejuvenation and radiance, we’ll help you achieve healthier, glowing skin.

How to tighten and lift your skin while eliminating wrinkles

Achieving more youthful skin is a goal many of us share after reaching a certain age. Skin starts to sag, wrinkles begin to show and our appearance just doesn’t seem as bright as it once did. Thankfully, we now have an array of non-invasive aesthetic treatments that will help us achieve a healthier, younger looking complexion.

Here are some of our top picks for lifting, tightening and smoothing your skin:

Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Containing botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), which is a form of muscle relaxant, anti-wrinkle injections work to relax and weaken the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles and frown lines.

When treated regularly, anti-wrinkle injections can help keep those pesky lines and wrinkles at bay. They can also help to prevent lines from forming if you act proactively. Results can be further enhanced by combining the injections with supporting skin tightening and rejuvenating treatments.

Dermal filler

Another form of cosmetic injection, dermal filler injections reintroduces hyaluronic acid into the skin to restore lost volume and enhance certain features. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that stabilises its structure, boosts hydration and improves elasticity

When injected into the skin, dermal filler can fill facial lines, wrinkles and deep folds, reduce tired and sagging skin under the eyes, smooth creping skin around the lips, and plump certain areas such as lips and cheeks. You can also use the treatment to contour your face, refine the chin, augment your nose and to improve the appearance of scars.

Ultraformer III

Ultraformer III is fast becoming known as the non-invasive face lift. Using ultrasound technology, Ultraformer III precisely targets the SMAS layer of the skin (that’s the layer that surgeons pull back when doing a face lift) with short pulses that stimulate new collagen production.

The end result is tighter, more lifted skin on the cheeks and neck (great for battling the dreaded turkey neck!). The treatment also works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and hooding and sagging around the eyes. When used in conjunction with cosmetic injectables, you can achieve even greater results.

3 reasons you need to try skin needling

Dermapen is an innovative, non-invasive skin needling treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin. Dermapen works by penetrating the top layers of the skin with micro-needles that create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation that has many advantages to the health of your complexion.

Here are our top 3 reasons you need to try Dermapen skin needling:

1.Boosts collagen production

The needling process slightly damages the skin below the surface, making your skin think there is an injury that needs to be repaired. Your body works to produce healthy new collagen and elastin fibers while it eliminates all damaged cells. In turn, new collagen reveals plumper, glowing and tighter skin.

2.Treat fine lines and wrinkles

The controlled injury that the procedure causes results in the repair production of collagen. Targeting collagen to the treated areas helps to fill in and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines as well as assisting in rejuvenating the overall appearance of your complexion.

3.Reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars

The skin needling process helps the skin to repair itself after it has encountered physical damage like cuts or scars. Your skin will eliminate old tissue cells that cause scarring and will replace it with new and fresh collagen. Similarly, with stretch marks they can rid or reduce the appearance and often the younger the stretch mark the more successful the treatment will be.

4 steps to summer ready skin

Winter is tough on our skin. The cold temperatures and winds often leave it dry and flaky by the time Spring rolls around. Here are our four steps to ensure your skin is vibrant and glowing by the time Summer hits:

1.Exfoliate

Step one is to get rid of any dead skin and congestion that’s built up over the dark Winter months. Consider facial treatments like Clear + Brilliant which uses laser technology to penetrate the top layer of your skin to remove old skin cells and stimulate the production of new ones. Our Rationale facials, which uses a combination of LED light-based technology and skin corrective actives to smoothen and brighten the skin are also a great option for removing dead skin and congestion.

2.Hydrate

Once the dead skin and congestion has been removed, it’s important to hydrate, which you can achieve with a treatment plan combining high-quality cosmeceutical skincare and treatments. HydraFacial is the perfect treatment for adding moisture back into dehydrated skin. This four-step treatment, combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to leave you glowing. Another treatment option is our newly launched Skinboosters™ treatment, which injects hyaluronic acid into the skin for instant hydration.

3.Rejuvenate

Good, healthy skin is as much about diet as it is about the skincare you use and the treatments you have done. Make sure you’re eating foods that will nourish you inside and out – that means more fruit and vegetables and less processed foods. Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day will also go a long way to hydrating your skin. A good diet mixed with treatments like Clear + Brilliant or HydraFacial will have you Summer ready in no time.

4.Protect

Finally, invest in quality skincare that includes a sunscreen, ideally one that’s SPF 50. This should include a cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen at a base level, with serums and masks added in if you’re looking to up the ante. To understand what products are best suited to you, we recommend booking a consultation with one of our experienced clinicians or dermal therapists.

Is your skin ready for the party season?

The season of Spring also means the start of the party season! Ensuring that your skin looks its best also takes a certain degree of planning. Depending on how long you have until your event, there are a number of treatments available that will ensure your skin is looking its absolute best.

Clear & Brilliant®:

Clear + Brilliant® is a fractionated laser that resurfaces the skin and in doing so, refines large pores, sheds dead skin cells and stimulates collagen. It’s the perfect all over treatment, with minimal downtime. Your skin will only appear red on the day you have the procedure; with a few days of slight roughness that no one will notice. This light resurfacing of the skin will leave you with a refreshed complexion that will maintain its beautiful glow long after the procedure.

Procedure Peel:

Procedure peels are a fantastic treatment to consider if you want to give your skin a healthy boost before an event; or treat specific skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation, scarring or rosacea. A peel is often prescribed as part of a series in a treatment program but is also a fantastic one-off procedure. Procedure peels are based on organic compounds such as lactic, salicylic, pyruvic and ascorbic acids that are only available only from medical skin care clinics. Our nurses will assess your skin and prescribe a peel that will work with your skin’s natural physiology to restore healthier, clearer, more luminous skin. The treatment takes approximately 15–20 minutes with little to no shedding of skin, and you can return to normal activities afterwards.

Anti-wrinkle Injections:

Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as muscle relaxants, are one of the most powerful tools to treat facial lines and wrinkles, giving consistent & long-lasting results. A qualified cosmetic clinician can perform anti-wrinkle treatments to subtly relax wrinkle-causing muscles. They’re popular for smoothing out existing lines and for preventing lines from forming in the future. A popular treatment choice, they can help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.

Dermal Filler:

Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels that can be placed under the skin to create extra volume, to enhance features such as your lips and to contour your face and body. They’re fantastic for creating an overall more rejuvenated and aesthetically pleasing complexion.

Genesis Laser:

A warm glow that glides over your skin, Genesis Laser uses high-power microsecond pulses at high repetition rates to safely heat the dermis. This stimulates collagen and elastin regrowth to soften the appearance of wrinkles and scarring and reduce redness in dilated capillaries. Genesis Laser is popular amongst celebrities before events. It’s their secret to achieving great results without the downtime that is normally associated with laser treatments.

LED Treatment:

A completely pain-free treatment, LED treatments stimulates your skin’s own renewal process and helps counteract the effects of ageing. Using light therapy to increase blood flow, relax muscles and rejuvenate your skin, our LED treatment is a relaxing way to spend a short period of time giving your skin a much needed boost.

HydraFacial MD™:

HydraFacial MD™ is a four-step treatment, combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration, while infusing your skin with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, peptides and other essential. An absolute must treatment, HydraFacial MD™ improves the overall quality and health of your skin.

Interested in body sculpting? Here’s everything you need to know about truSculpt® 3D

Sometimes, no matter how hard we exercise or how well we eat, there seems to be stubborn body fat that we just can’t seem to get rid of, mostly around the stomach, thighs and those dreaded love handles!

Now, a new advancement in non-invasive body contouring is promising to banish unwanted fat. It’s called truSculpt® 3D, and here’s everything you need to know about the innovative new treatment.

What is truSculpt® 3D?

truSculpt® 3D is a treatment that uses radio frequency technology to target, heat and destroy fat cells deep below the skin’s surface, reducing up to 24% of body fat within the treated area and reshaping problem areas, leaving you with a tighter, contoured shape in just six to 12 weeks.

What areas can be treated with truSculpt® 3D?

Any areas of unwanted body fat can be treated with truSculpt® 3D, including your abdomen, flanks (love handles), upper back, arms, thighs, double chin and ankles. Keep in mind though, the treatment can’t be used on areas where no, or little fat is present, such as the breast and chest area, or over reproductive organs.

Who is suitable for truSculpt® 3D?

truSculpt® 3D is suited for people of all sin types, who are healthy (with a body mass index of less than 30) but have problem areas of stubborn fat that they can’t shift. At your first appointment, our nurses and clinicians will conduct an in-depth consultation with you to assess your goals and determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.

How is truSculpt® 3D different from CoolSculpt?

truSculpt® 3D uses radio frequency technology to heat and destroy unwanted body fat, whereas CoolSculpting freezes the area. While both are effective body contouring treatments, truSculpt® 3D is able to treat a wider area during one treatment and also penetrates more deeply for greater results. The treatment is also shorter and requires no downtime.

How many treatments will I need?

For body treatments, generally only one treatment is required, however a second treatment can be performed 12 weeks post the first treatment if additional results are desired.

For face and neck treatments, generally three treatments, spaced four weeks apart are required for the best results.

Is it painful?

No. truSculpt® 3D is a heat-based treatment that feels similar to a hot stone massage. You will feel a warming sensation when the device is glided over the treatment area that should remain comfortable throughout.

Is there downtime involved post-treatment?

There is no downtime following truSculpt® 3D. The area treated may be tender but this will resolve within a few days. You can immediately return to your normal activities post treatment.

Your body will immediately begin to break down and flush out damaged fat cells following the truSculpt® 3D treatment. Results are visible as early as six weeks post treatment, with the best results seen at 12 weeks.

 

Contact your clinic today to book in your truSculpt® 3D treatment and achieve the body you want.

Considering cosmetic Injectables? Our expert advice for first timers

Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are some of our most popular treatments and play an important part of many of our clients’ overall treatment plans. That’s because, when used in combination with our medical-grade skincare, laser and light and body sculpting treatments, they deliver long-lasting, natural looking results that leave our clients looking and feeling their confident best.

Clients embarking on their aesthetic journey and taking their first plunge into injectables, regardless of their age, all generally ask the same questions about the treatments and results they will experience. So, we thought we’d ask our experienced team of nurses and doctors for their advice for those looking to start their injectables journey.

     

Advice #1

“You won’t look frozen or fake! So many of our clients are worried about looking artificial or unable to have mobility in treated areas, but we are highly-skilled in ensuring you achieve a natural looking result.”

Advice #2

“Injectables aren’t just for getting rid of wrinkles, they’re great for enhancing features – another great reason to embark on your injectables journey! Injectables such as dermal filler can amplify your features or correct asymmetry in your cheeks, lips and chin.”

Advice #3

“Put your aesthetic journey in the hands of people you can trust. We often see clients who have started their journey in other clinics and the outcome hasn’t been as expected, or in some cases, has needed repair. It is important that you choose your clinic carefully and trust your clinician. Injectables are fantastic, but you don’t want to make the wrong choice in where you go for treatment.”

Advice #4

“They really do rejuvenate your skin! Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections restore a person’s appearance and can reverse those tired lines that so many of clients are concerned with.”

At Clear Complexions, we pride ourselves on our holistic, three-dimensional approach to treating our clients’ skin. We balance the use of medical grade skincare treatments, injectables and high-quality skincare, delivering long-lasting, natural looking results that leave you with a new level of confidence.
