Microdermabrasion in Reading

Medical Microdermabrasion

Youthful looks can easily be returned to tired and ageing skin through the process of exfoliation, which removes the surface layer of dead cells to reveal the fresh dermal layers beneath. The best results can be achieved by the modern technique of medical microdermabrasion. This uses a unique combination of minuscule inert crystals and sterile applicator equipment to gently abrade the skin, even in sensitive and difficult to reach places. Its sterility makes it suitable for removing the appearance of acne scarring due to its reduced risk of cross infection, and it can also be used in conjunction with other acne treatments, improving their efficacy.

Eczema treatments in Reading

Eczema is a common skin condition, although that does not make it less painful or distressing for the sufferer. It causes red itchy skin on various parts of your body. A flare up of eczema can be triggered by food and airborne allergies, the weather, certain fabrics used in clothing, certain metals used in jewellery, ingredients in skincare products and the ingredients in household detergents. 

Ezcema trigger factors

Stress and exercise are contributing factors, although they do not specifically cause eczema. Some people react to stress by scratching, this in turn causes red itchy skin and may lead to eczema. After exercise the dried on sweat may cause itching and left for a period of time may trigger eczema. Severe eczema can be caused by a pre existing infection.

Reading Dermaroller Treatments

What is Dermaroller?

A dermaroller looks like a standard brush with a small roller on the end. Sterile needles are embedded in the rollers which when rolled over the skin, puncture the layers beneath. Topical anaesthetic is applied to the skin prior to the procedure for your comfort. The effect is to stimulate the skin to produce elastin and collagen which are natural strengtheners and repairers of skin.

Tighter, smoother skin leads to a variety of benefits:

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Softening of skin.
  • Reduction in acne or surgical scarring.
  • Repair of stretch marks and reduction in cellulite.
  • Reduction in hyperpigmentation.
  • Reduction of large open pores around the T Zone.

Reading Pigmentation Treatments

Hyperpigmentation results from the overproduction of melanin, a dark pigment found in the skin. Melanin’s role is to protect the skin from burning when it is exposed to the sun. The overproduction of melanin darkens the skin to such an extent that brown patches develop.

Melasma is a common form of hyperpigmentation and presents as dark symmetrical patches on the skin of the jawline, cheeks, temples and forehead. Melasma can develop in pregnant women and women who are experiencing fluctuations in their hormone levels.

Mole Treatment in Reading

What is a Mole?

A mole is a benign growth on the skin. Moles vary in size and shape, but generally are around 1cm on average, and are visible due to a darkened colour compared to the rest of the skin. The majority of moles are formed during the first 20 years of a person’s life. It is relatively uncommon for people to be born with moles. A mole is usually not a threat to a person’ health.
