Now that winter is here, (please delete the text in blue) It’s important to step up your skincare routine. That’s because cold weather is tough on our skin.
Both plummeting temperatures and a lack of humidity draws moisture from our skin with the end result, it dries it out. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, the winds add a further chill factor while indoor heat can be the final straw and even make our skin start cracking (hello eczema and psoriasis).
Yes, it’s enough to want to head to the sun for a long winter session. Unfortunately, that’s not available for the majority of us. But, what we can do is look after our skin and make sure it’s as healthy and glowing as possible.
At Vale Laser Clinic we have a team of skin experts who are happy to pass on their specialist advice during client consultations and treatment sessions.
Our skin treatments are non-surgical and, as such, non-invasive. This makes them painless but still very much effective. Here are specialist areas of expertise:
This treatment helps remove red veins, pigmentation and balance uneven skin tone. By stimulating the collagen and elastin in your skin. The result is firmer, smoother and therefore younger-looking skin. The procedure can be applied to the face, neck, chest and hands.
Laser red vein removal IPL Red vein treatment can also help with embarrassing problems, such as red flushing (rosacea), thread veins, spider naevi and even red spots (including port wine stains). This is achieved through using an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) which is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood and heats the offending veins and spots until they are destroyed and the vessels cleared. The results are nothing short of miraculous – as if the blemish hadn’t existed in the first place.
Other areas we work on include liver spots and age spots. These tend to have too much melanin. The IPL can also cause this to coagulate and within a few days your skin will be clearer and brighter. We can also help with problems concerning enlarged pores and acne scarring.
It’s possible to see results from within 2-3 sessions of IPL care. If the problem is particularly small then it may even take just a single session.
