While it may be hard to accept, summer is over. And with that, it’s time to prepare your skin for the cold months ahead.
Autumn may just be the best time of year to give your skin some attention. During summer, your focus is on protection and hydration, and with so much time spent out enjoying the sunshine, harsher treatments are out of the question.
But with the arrival of shorter days and cooler nights, you’re able to invest in more intense treatments that will really improve the look and feel of your skin, and offer longer-lasting benefits.
Rather than lament the end of summer, treat yourself and your skin with these nourishing, revitalising and health-giving facials.
Chemical peels may be the hardest-working facial treatments going around. Think of them as your skin’s superhero, working to fight off the signs of aging and reveal stunningly smooth skin.
Using specific ingredients customised to your skin’s needs, a chemical peel will slough away dead skin cells to reveal fresh, clean and newly hydrated skin. But it’s doing more than that. At the same time as it’s working to remove that dry layer of skin, it’s also stimulating new cell growth and activating collagen production.
Chemical peels vary in strength and your MySkin Laser therapist will be able to find the appropriate peel for your skin’s needs. We offer chemical peels from leading brands CosMedix, Aspect Dr and Environ - each delivering a suite of benefits direct to your complexion.
If you’re the kind of woman who loves a fruit-and-veg laden smoothie for breakfast each morning, then you’re going to love vitamin infusion facials. This gorgeous facial sends a hit of rejuvenating ingredients directly to the areas of your skin that need it the most.
First, a custom selection of serums laden with active ingredients are applied directly to your skin. Then, your therapist will pass a special wand across the surface of your face. This wand uses something called sonophoresis, which is akin to a gentle vibration. This gentle action creates tiny spaces in the skin’s upper layer, allowing the treatment serum to penetrate further, where it can be most effective.
The best thing about vitamin infusion is that it is suitable for just about everyone and you’ll notice results straight away (although, like most treatments the best results come after a few sessions). Your therapist will help you choose the right treatment for you, but some of these include an express vitamin infusion when you need a pick-me-up, focused vitamin infusion to target more specific skin concerns, a purifying treatment for acne and deep skin congestion, and an ultimate treatment where sonophoresis (sound waves) and iontophoresis (electrical currents) are combined to deliver a more intense treatment.
You can also combine a vitamin infusion treatment with a chemical peel for even deeper and more visible results.
If you like your facials coupled with the latest-generation technology, then a laser facial is for you.
MySkin Laser use the MedLite C6 system - considered a gold standard in laser technology. It uses advanced yet safe photoacoustic (light wave) energy to vibrate skin fibres and promote collagen production.
Different treatments are available to target specific skin concerns. The express laser facial is ideal for younger skin that requires a superior deep cleansing. This treatment works to remove blackheads, clear oil in congested areas, destroy microorganisms and increase cell renewal.
For age spots and pigmentation, the advanced treatment is ideal. For this facial, a specifically formulated wavelength is used to reduce pigmentation and reveal clearer, smoother skin. There is also a laser toning facial to reverse skin damage, and a laser peel treatment which targets severely sun-damaged skin.
