Acne: Results from Nicola

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become blocked with oil and dead skin cells resulting in a bacterial formation. It causes millia (whiteheads), comedones (blackheads), papules (pimples) and pustules (yellowheads). Acne is often common among teenagers, however it can affect people of all ages. 

There are different types of acne, with different factors that could be causing or increasing its severity. We can help you understand what factors are causing your acne, and how it can be helped. 

This is the result of our owner Nicola’s treatment of this client for 8 months. 

Background
This client came to the clinic as she was getting married and wanted to improve her skin condition before the wedding.

Treatment
This client was prescribed a 100% skincare routine – 50% Advanced Nutrition Programme supplements and 50% environ skincare. It took 8 months for the skin to become this clear, as is often the case with skin conditions. A real glow takes time, and quick fixes are never the answer!

Skin Accumax by Advanced Nutrition Programme is always one of the first things we start treating our Acne clients with.

Aftercare
This condition requires maintenance with a good skincare and supplement routine, as well as regular treatments as otherwise Acne can easily return. However, the focus will be more about maintaining rather than treatment now.

If you think or know you may have Acne or any other skin condition, then book in a consultation with one of our skincare experts to find out more about how we can help you treat it.

Why hot stone massages are up to ten times more effective than traditional massage…

Hot stone massage utilizes heated volcanic basalt stones to relax muscles deeply, enhance circulation, and improve digestion, offering significant benefits over traditional massages which rely only on manual manipulation. This technique is especially effective in relieving muscle pain, stress, arthritis, improving sleep, boosting immune function, and managing chronic conditions. By also aiding in detoxification and energizing the body, hot stone therapy promises a rejuvenative holistic well-being experience. Engaging in best practices before, during, and after sessions maximizes these benefits.

Why dermaplaning is a threat to your skin barrier and long-term skin health

Dermaplaning, while offering an immediate glow by removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz, also strips away healthy skin layers, compromising the skin's barrier function. This leads to increased sensitivity, dryness, and vulnerability to environmental damage such as UV rays. Long-term effects include heightened risk of sun damage, exacerbation of skin issues like acne, and premature aging. Home dermaplaning poses risks of infection and scarring. It is advised to consider safer, long-term skincare alternatives and, if still chosen, to opt for professional handling to mitigate risks. Prioritising skin health yields lasting benefits over superficial quick fixes.
