Our skin is a complex organ, with various factors that can lead to a healthy or unhealthy appearance.
Most people notice one or two things about their skin that bothers them: perhaps lines and wrinkles or acne.
However, it’s important to recognise that these visible symptoms may be caused by a variety of different sources. This is why you should consider a multi-layered approach to addressing these concerns.
For example, you may look in the mirror and feel that your skin looks tired, drawn and has lost its bloom, but this can be caused by different factors, such as:
- fat pad reduction leading to a drawn and haggard appearance,
- reduced collagen/elastin production leading to more lax and loose skin,
- reduced availability of hyaluronic acid leading to drier skin with more fine lines and wrinkles,
- increased effects of sun damage leading to more pigmentation and age spots.
In order to address all of these issues, you would need to consider a multi-layered approach, including treatments in clinic such as dermal fillers, micro-needling, plus skincare for use at home, as well as changes to your diet and lifestyle. Although it seems like a lot to consider, it’s important to understand that successful treatment of a problem with a variety of causes will require a variety of solutions. Opting for a clinic treatment alone may not give you the best result. If you wanted to lose weight and get fit, you wouldn’t just go to the gym once a month, without also improving your diet at home, would you?
How can I figure out what I need to have healthy skin?
This is where a knowledgeable and experienced aesthetic practitioner can help you. During a comprehensive consultation with an aesthetic practitioner, you will have the time to raise every concern you have regarding your skin, and the impact these concerns have on you and your confidence. The aesthetic practitioner will then talk you through the potential causes of your concerns, suggest a multi-layered treatment plan and give you more information about expected results, including any maintenance. Having a consultation means you may find out things you were unaware of about your skin: for example, even if you think your skin is just a bit dry, it could be because it’s sensitive too, and you just didn’t realize that you were using products that irritated it. Changing your products to a professional range that’s specially designed for your skin type could make all the difference.
