High grade skin care: how does this make my appearance medicine more effective?
Appearance medicine targets the underlying cause of wrinkles and sagging skin, relaxing muscles and restoring volume loss. However the skin itself is an organ that requires certain conditions in order to heal itself. A deep wrinkle will not completely resolve with Botox™ or Dysport™ alone, it will simply soften the wrinkle and prevent the line worsening. However it does present us an oppurtunity to restructure the damage while the muscle is not causing further trauma to the skin, allowing for a stronger result from the skin treatment.
Facialsutilising high quality ingredients can infuse the skin with the nutrients it needs to heal and rebuild. They also remove the dead skin cells on the skins surface which allows your at home serums and moisturisers to penetrate more deeply and have a greater effect. They can also resurface the top layer of skin by inducing cell turnover, shedding the top layer of skin and inciting a new layer of skin to generate that is healthy and less damage than the previous skin. (This is commonly known as a chemical peel). Not to mention the serious glow that you get from regular facials! If you ever want the confidence to go for the no make up life then facials are your best friend!
Facials are very helpful in preparing the skin for the next level of treatments that we offer by ensuring it is in its strongest and healthiest state before undergoingcollagen induction therapy (CIT).
CIT is the name of the medical grade skin treatments that we offer at Encorė Beauty and Medi-spa. They are performed by trained professionals and target the skin at a deeper level than facials alone can do. The main goal of these is to induce inflammation into the skin to generate skin healing, this encourages the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin laxity. As well as this it can also rebuild scars and acne scarring, reduce pigmentation, and treat thread veins and redness. This therapy is delivered either using medical grade lasers, or micro needling. Depending on your skin and your desired results you would be assessed and we would recommend which treatment is best for your skin journey!
