Skin for all seasons

Skin for all seasons

Whether you remember it or not, summer is now officially over, so how can we repair and ultimately prepare for the new season ahead? Jackie at The Clinic, Lisburn Road, has some suggestions.

During summer, our skin is battered and beaten by various elements on a daily basis.  Whether the sun, sand, insect repellant, sunscreen or even those warm humid days that feel like an oven, our skin has to cope with a lot and can come out the other side a little worse for wear.

Yet now our skin faces a new set of challenges as the wind picks up speed and the rain clouds roll in. So we all need to rejuvenate our faces while affording some protection for the months ahead.  Our skin can start to become dry, dehydrated and rough.  Luckily, The Clinic, Lisburn Road, offers a range of non-invasive treatments to awaken our skin cells.

Epionce Skin Peels

An unfortunate result of sun damage is that the skin dries and your much-loved tan can start to peel off revealing a paler, wintry-looking face.  Moisturiser is no longer protecting our skin and now we need an extra boost to re-energise the cells.  At The Clinic, Jackie offers a dermatological therapy whereby the dead layers of skin separate and peel off so new healthy cells can appear.  This is a fantastic treatment for those who desperately need to buff away those damaged skin cells.

If you have a special occasion coming up in Autumn, The Clinic recommends having a skin peel a month or two beforehand.  This allows the skin time to fully recover by enabling healthy skin cells to develop.

The full range of Epionce products are also available at The Clinic for ongoing skin care between treatments.


One of the most popular treatments at The Clinic at this time of year is this non-invasive method of stimulating the production of collagen across the face, rejuvenating the skin and treating scars or sun damage.

The simple process involves the running of a hand-held dermaroller over areas of the skin, resulting in a more intensive form of microdermabrasion which will allow skincare products to be absorbed more easily, making it ideal for post-holiday dry skin and T-zones in danger of peeling excessively.

Anti-wrinkle injections

We know Autumn is here to welcome us with open arms when we get into the car to drive home from work, the sun is setting and the sky is beginning to get darker.  We are left squinting trying to see where we should be going.  This can lead to fine lines across our eyes and forehead.  Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective way to tackle and subsequently reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.  They reverse the results of muscle contractions, causing the muscles to relax.  This treatment is fundamentally painless and results are visible within three to seven days, lasting up to six months.

Dermal Fillers

As we move into autumn and our routines return to normal following the summer months, our weight loss and exercise regime can result in sunken and withdrawn cheeks.

Luckily, The Clinic offers non-permanent cheek enhancement fillers that provide a quick, safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful look.

Reversing any sagging that may have resulted from the hunt for a dream beach bod, dermal fillers will erase lines and folds stimulating immediate volume and lifting the cheeks.

The Clinic offers a full range of treatments for all body types and issues. All procedures are administered by a fully qualified aesthetic practitioner. Prior to any treatment, the experienced team at The Clinic will discuss the process and talk through any questions or concerns you might have.
