Are you Clinic Ready?

Thinking about an in-clinic treatment?

Or already have a booking?

Then we have good news for you, you can boost your results! No matter what your treatment is, from microneedling to chemical peels, YOU can improve your skin outcome.

Everything you do in the weeks before and after will have an impact on your treatment, from the skincare you use, to how much sleep you get. We like to think about prepping for a treatment like prepping for a marathon.

If you’ve been a coach potato and turn up to run a marathon your outcome will never be as good as if you’ve spent time training and readying your body to perform on the day. Similarly, if your skin is in really good condition on the day of your treatment, your results will be even better! So don’t save all the good skincare for afterward, your treatment isn’t the beginning, today is!

When it comes to your skin pro, they will be thrilled if your skin is at its best on the day of treatment. It means they can potentially go deeper, stronger, and harder meaning they will have more fun and you’ll get both amazing results and the best value too! Plus, if your skin is more resilient and stronger there’s a chance your pro will be able to combine more than one skin treatment at your appointment, so you might be able to have, for example, an enzymatic peel followed by some light-based therapy.

It’s the same with your recovery, if you follow good aftercare, you will have better and quicker results. There’s so much you can do outside of your treatment slot to get your skin in prime condition before you even walk through the clinic door.

Here are our top 5 hacks, so don’t delay and start today!

No 1 Take a look at your wellbeing.

Focusing on your gut health as any inflammation here will often show up on the skin as redness, dullness, or breakouts. Then there’s sleep, intrinsic to skin health and recovery, so ensure you get enough in the weeks leading up to your treatment.
 

No 2 Prep with Medical-Grade Skincare to Get Great Results

Don’t save your precious AlumierMD skincare for after your treatment. Work with your pro to ensure your daily skin routine is working hard for your skin goals and needs. If your skin is in tip-top condition when you walk through the clinic door your treatments will be even more successful.
 

No 3 Do at-home facials.

In the weeks leading up to your treatment spend a bit of extra time on a weekly or bi-weekly at home facial. Ask your pro for a mask recommendation; you can also read about face masks in our Halloween blog post.
 

No 4 Set your pro a challenge

Arrive at the clinic with such good skin that your pro will need to work extra hard to take it to the next level!
 

No 5 Follow the aftercare routine set by your pro

Your pro will advise you on what to use when for the first few weeks after your treatment. If you follow it to the letter, you will have better and quicker results, can’t say fairer than that!

Microneedling – It’s Trickery and here is why….


Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a handheld device with fine needles to create small, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin.

During a microneedling procedure, we use a pen-like device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The depth of penetration can be adjusted based on the specific needs of the client and the area being treated.

The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body’s natural healing response. As the skin repairs itself, this will induce Collagen Production, new collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

  • Microneedling can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • It is used to minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars.
  • Microneedling can contribute to smoother skin texture and improved tone.
  • The micro-channels created during the procedure can enhance the absorption of topical skincare products.

Microneedling is commonly used to address various skin concerns, including aging skin, acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture.

The downtime after microneedling is typically minimal, clients may experience redness and mild swelling for a day or two. Complete recovery time varies from person to person.

The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns being addressed. Some people see results after just one session, while others may need multiple sessions for optimal results.

The Lowdown on Skin Peels

We use Alumier MD here at Surrey Laser Clinic and the benefits of a skin peel are incredible.

Firstly let me tell you a bit about Alumier, specifically the peels –
AlumierMD’s skin peels are designed to help with skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.

These peels typically contain a combination of acids and other active ingredients that help exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, stimulate collagen production, and improve overall skin health and appearance.

Are there different types of Skin peels?
The solution contains chemicals, treatments come in different depths – from light to deep.

A light depth peel, or superficial skin peel, is the lowest level of treatment and removes the epidermis – the outer layer of the skin. This type of treatment is best-suited to fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, uneven
skin tone and small areas of acne.
A medium depth peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and the dermis – the middle layer of your skin. This type of peel can be used to treat the same concerns as a light chemical peel but is also effective at minimising acne scarring.
Finally, a deep skin peel removes the most amount of skin cells and is used for deep wrinkles, aged scarring and even pigmentation.

How does it work?
Skin peels are a non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin. After Skin cleansing and enhancing the treatment with a hydrating mask, you will feel a tingling sensation due to the activity of the hydrating mask.

We use a soft brush to apply the chemical solution, which is made up of a gentle and unique blend of acids, this gives a mild tingling and sensation of warmth.

Followed by a neutralising process to restore natural skin PH level with a
gentle massage with Alumier MD Recovery Balm and of course SPF Protection with Physical Sunscreen.

Alumier Skin Peels provides an effective way to improve the look and feel of your skin. It also helps to gently exfoliate the skin’s top damaged layers, leaving your complexion fresh, renewed and radiant.

Is there an Ideal Time to Start My Laser Hair Removal Journey?

YES! ….. there is

Starting laser hair removal in Autumn/Winter is a really clever decision for many reasons –

Sad, but true with reduced Sunshine Exposure during these months and also that we tend to spend more time indoors due to cooler temperatures and shorter daylight hours, make it the perfect time to start.

This reduced sun exposure is beneficial because laser hair removal is most effective on untanned skin. Sun exposure can make the skin more sensitive and increase the risk of side effects like hyperpigmentation or burns.

We wear more clothes – In the colder months, we wear more clothing that cover the treated areas, making it easier to protect the skin from sun exposure immediately after a session. This can help prevent potential complications and ensure a smoother recovery.

Laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to target hair follicles at different stages of growth. Choosing to start the process as autumn & winter draws in, gives you several months to complete the full series of treatments before spring graces us with its presence and then of course summer, when you might want to show off your beautiful smooth skin.

Laser hair removal can make your skin more sensitive for a short period after each session. The cooler months can be more comfortable for those with sensitive skin, as they are less likely to experience discomfort due to heat or sunburn.

It’s important to note that, regardless of the season, you should always follow the guidelines provided when it comes to protecting your skin from sun exposure during and after laser hair removal. Sunscreen and protective clothing are essential throughout the entire treatment process to ensure the best results and minimize the risk of adverse effects.
