Lockdown has not been kind to our skin. The effects of being stuck indoors have given many people patchy dryness, outbreaks of acne and many other common skin complaints that appear to have been exacerbated during the lockdown.

Stress is a significant factor in this. It’s a stressful time with many people concerned about their health, when they can see loved ones again and when things can get back to normal. Stress can cause acne outbreaks and encourage unhealthy eating habits, which can cause further skin problems.

Vitamin D from sunlight can also help prevent skin ageing and promote healthy bone growth. So all this time indoors has been depriving us of this essential skin nutrient. Then there’s the “maskne” issue, causing spots and blemishes on the lower half of our face due to excessive mask-wearing.

If these issues sound familiar, don’t worry. At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we have a range of incredible cosmetic treatments that can banish that lockdown face and give your skin the rejuvenation it needs. Here are our top recommendations:

Intracel is our unique fractional radiofrequency micro-needling technique that delivers energy deep into the dermis. It uses selective heating in the lower dermis without compromising or heating the skin’s surface or the underlying tissue so it does not burn or create hyperpigmentation.

The heat energy works to tighten and shorten the collagen fibres in the skin while encouraging collagen production and the stimulation of fibroblasts. Intracel is, therefore, an excellent choice for those wanting an anti-ageing cosmetic treatment.

Unlike laser treatments, Intracel does not rely on electro energy for heat, and it only emits the radiofrequency into the dermis. The treatment can also treat the causes of acne in the sebaceous glands. If you’re looking for a treatment that can give you tighter skin and facial rejuvenation, Intracel could be the right choice for you.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Does a facelift sound too drastic? Fortunately, there is the option of a non-surgical facelift that uses injectable fillers to add volume back to the face.

Restore the contours of your face with added volume that will give you apple cheeks from years past. We use the most effective facial tightening technology available to give you long-lasting results without the need for surgery.

The treatment will tighten the face and replace the loss of volume as a result of ageing. It fills the skin and lifts it by the formation of your body’s own collagen, making it an effective non-surgical tool for those seeking facial rejuvenation after lockdown.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can give you smoother skin by enhancing your facial features and restoring lost volume to the facial structure. Our dermal fillers are made from different molecular structures of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance responsible for water retention in the skin.

When administered by our experienced professional team, these fillers will add volume and integrate into the facial tissue itself, drawing water to the area and locking moisture into the skin. Your face will appear healthy, rejuvenated and hydrated as a result of the treatment.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat the temples, tear trough, cheeks, mid-face, lower face, chin, smoker’s line, lips, frown lines, naso-labial folds and marionette lines. You are always in safe hands with treatments from the Aesthetic Skin Clinic.

For a quick treatment that gets rave reviews from top celebs, the Hydrafacial could be for you. This treatment not only leaves your skin brighter and refreshed, but will also unclog the pores and remove dead skin during the extraction process.

The Hydrafacial combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection, and red light therapy in one treatment to improve your skin’s health and give you a beautiful, glowing complexion. The cleansing and exfoliation removes dead skin to reveal new skin. Glycolic acid is then applied to loosen impurities without irritating them. Next, extraction is used to clean and remove blackheads from deep in the pores, and then antioxidant serums are applied to enhance skin hydration.

You will see an instant difference that boosts your skin, improves its health, tone and texture, and reduces pigmentation, facial lines and acne.

Obagi Blue Peel

The Obagi Blue Peel is designed to give you tighter, smoother and brighter looking skin that will be visible after the first session. Suppose you have concerns like mild acne scarring, photodamage and melasma. In that case, the Obagi Blue Peel can exfoliate the skin’s superficial layers and leave your skin feeling refreshed, revived and radiant.

The peel is applied to clean, dry skin and left on for around 10 to 12 minutes. An additional layer of the peel may be applied to achieve desired results. The skin is then cleansed to remove the peel with an Obagi Nu-Derm cleanser. Sunscreen is then used to prevent pigmentation and sun damage.

It is a quick and effective treatment that will make your skin feel brand new, perfect after months of being stuck indoors feeling the adverse effects of lockdown face.
