We all associate spring with new life and regeneration but sometimes we forget that it’s important to focus on reviving the skin too.
Our skin goes through a lot on a day-to-day basis, such as exposure to pollution, lack of sleep, stress and dehydration. While our skin does its best to naturally combat these inevitabilities by repairing its cells every day, this process takes its toll over time, especially on the face.
Despite the lotions and potions and thorough, regular exfoliation, a debris of dead skin will be left harbouring underneath the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, which can make the skin appear dull, dry and drained. Treating the skin to a chemical peel is often the most effective way to regenerate and resurface your skin, giving it newfound life and vibrancy.
The chemical peel treatment is a simple procedure whereby a solution is applied to the skin causing a removal of its upper layers. This removal or peeling of the top layers induces collagen and promotes regeneration of fresh and unblemished skin. A chemical peel will improve the skin’s complexion, giving a vibrant skin appearance and softening fine lines and wrinkles.
Founder of The Clinic, Jackie Donnelly, is renowned across Northern Ireland and the UK as a leading skin expert.
She says: “While a chemical peel completely redefines the skin, it can leave the skin a little sensitive temporarily, so spring, ahead of summer’s harmful rays and busy social calendar, is an ideal time to engage with this non-surgical treatment.
“We offer a wide portfolio of peels which allows us to match a treatment to a client’s needs. Different skin types require different peels, so it’s always worthwhile having a consultation first. However, everyone can benefit from a peel – whether the goal is to achieve glowing, vibrant skin or treat acne-prone areas.”
Whilst chemical peels are suitable for both mature and young skin, Jackie suggests that dermal fillers are ideal for aging skin and explains that as we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity.
She says: “Unfortunately that supple, full complexion we took for granted when we were younger begins to fade as we age. From our late twenties onward, our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin which are required for a youthful look.
“Dermal-fillers are one of our most-popular treatments thanks to their non-invasive, instant effects. Our clients have seen that fillers not only temporarily halt, but can in certain instances reverse, the ageing process.”
The treatment injects tiny amounts of cruelty-free, hyaluronic acid into the skin or lips making the skin’s surface appear ‘plumped up’ and diminishing lines and wrinkles for a fresh appearance.
