As summer draws to a close and the days grow shorter, temperatures drop and the air becomes drier. Now the children are back at school, why not treat your skin to our post summer rejuvenation treatments. The months before the truly cold, British winter sets in, are the perfect time for you to correct any damage caused over summer and prepare your skin for the harsh months ahead.

Sun, chlorine and saltwater may have taken its toll on your skin throughout summer, so autumn is the time to exfoliate and rehydrate your skin. This will give your skin the best start when the harsher winter weather sets in.

Where should you start?

Exfoliation

Polish And Smooth With Dermabrasion

Post summer skin can look dehydrated so exfoliation is extremely important as it gets rid of the dead and damaged cells. This causes your skin to look dull and lifeless. By doing this you will prepare the skin so that it can absorb more moisture and give a smooth surface.

Laser Dermabrasion is perfect for helping you regain a smoother skin surface following sun exposure. Laser Dermabrasion works without the need of chemicals and is extremely simple, virtually painless and for all ages. It’s frequently used on the neck, hands and décolletage, as well as the face. The peel is a controlled depth peel performed with the Erbium YAG laser that results in very little downtime. The laser lightly ablates the very top layers of the skin causing it to peel. This makes the skin appear clearer and more refreshed. The downtime can be anywhere from a couple of hours to 2-3 days depending on the depth of treatment and area treated.

Rehydration

Treat Thirsty Skin To Hydration

Exposure to the sun causes dehydration, and wrinkles and fine lines can appear on the skin. The moisture lost needs to be properly supplemented before the onset of winter. During the summer months, exposure to UVA/B light causes hyaluronic acid to break down. Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume and support, without this skin loses its firmness and fine lines and wrinkles can develop. Although regular moisturising is recommended, topical creams are not able to fully penetrate the skin and hydrate from beneath like rehydration fillers can. These fillers replace the lost hyaluronic acid and give subtle, natural results.

Sun Protection

Although the autumn sun is not as strong as it was in summer, it is still necessary for you to use your sunscreen regularly. A sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 is advised. We recommend Avene Sun Protection in SPF 50. The very high protection provided by this silky emulsion covers a very broad spectrum, and utilises an exclusive grouping of active ingredients. Skin is protected against UVB and also short and long UVA rays. There are several different creams in this range to suit all skin types.
