When it comes to anti-ageing and how we can delay the effects that time has on our skin, many of us think of professional skin rejuvenation treatments and a trip to a skincare clinic. However, if you’re serious about giving back your skin a youthful look, your anti-ageing efforts should start at home with your skincare.
A solid skincare routine is the basis for achieving most of your skin goals. Without a strong foundation to support your skin’s needs you won’t reap the full benefits of any professional treatments and will be depriving yourself of achieving the best possible results.
Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we stock a wide range of products to help you address the specific signs of ageing. The entire ZAHEDA® Skincare range has been formulated with powerful actives, like Wakame sea kelp, which possess a proven number of skin rejuvenating and anti-ageing properties.
Creating a Protective Barrier
The foundation of any skincare routine is an effective moisturiser. The loss of collagen and elasticity is one of the key signs of ageing and this can be exacerbated by dry and dehydrated skin. The Sea Collagen Serum day cream has been scientifically formulated with marine and botanical actives that have been proven to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. It also contains sodium hyaluronate – a form of hyaluronic acid – a powerful humectant, and squalane for moisture retention. The end result is a cream that not only protects your skin but also has a rejuvenating effect.
To look after the more fragile skin around your eyes, use a targeted anti-ageing eye cream like the Ultimate Youth Lift eye cream. It’s formulated with marine algae to reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness, and stimulate collagen production; and hyaluronic acid to improve moisture retention, improve the look of fine lines, and plump the skin. It also contains organic rosa damascena water to soothe and cool the sensitive skin around the eyes.
Tackling Dullness and Pigmentation
A key part of any skin rejuvenation treatment – whether it’s at home or a professional treatment – is either chemical or physical exfoliation in order to remove dead skin to reveal a youthful glow. This not only rejuvenates the skin and boost cell renewal for an anti-ageing effect but also prepares your skin to better absorb any serums and creams you apply later in your routine.
To achieve a more radiant look and smoother skin texture, use the Ultra Smooth Sea Polish exfoliator scrub as the first step in your skincare routine (once you have removed your makeup and SPF). Diatomaceous earth and volcanic rock remove impurities and exfoliate the skin, while Wakame sea kelp helps to prevent the breakdown of hyaluronic acid, improving moisture retention.
To tackle dark spots and sun damage that can age the look of your skin, use a brightening cream like Ultra Light Derma White. Unlike harsh lightening creams, it contains a powerful Alpine herb blend to target pigmentation issues and reduce the appearance of age spots. Like any good anti-ageing moisturiser, it also contains co-enzyme Q10 to protect cells from free radicals, marine plant extracts to protect against cell degradation, and Wakame sea kelp to inhibit the breakdown of hyaluronic acid.
Preparing your skin for dermatological treatments is like preparing a canvas, the end result will always be better if you start with a good base. This is especially true when it comes to treatments that involve exfoliation as you’ll want your skin to be at its best, in order to recover more quickly from the procedure.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
To support the anti-ageing benefits of your skincare routine, we offer a number of skin rejuvenation treatments, carried out by our skin experts at our Harley Street clinic. These include Advanced Dermabrasion which works on the outer layer of your skin; the Marine Peel Treatment to provide a deeper rejuvenation treatment; and Collagen Induction Therapy which works on the deeper layers of your skin – the dermis. By using a combination of all three, you can target the signs of ageing on every level of your skin, creating a youthful and rejuvenated look. Because ageing creates more than one visible sign, you need to use a multi-treatment approach to achieve the desired anti-ageing effect.
