WHY DO I HAVE DARK CIRCLES?

So you’ve come back from a holiday on the beach and you’re ready to start work after a relaxing summer, but for some reason, your dark circles have not gone away?

Dark circles under eyes are a very common in both men and women, and often hard to get rid of. The causes of dark circles vary, but they are usually associated with ageing factors, as well as a genetic disposition to periorbital hyperpigmentation.

Whilst fatigue seems to be most people’s assumption on why we have dark circles, this explanation falls short. Sometimes oversleeping or even staying a few hours past your normal bedtime can cause dark circles to appear. As sleep deprivation causes your skin to go dull and pale, it allows dark tissues and blood vessels to build beneath your skin.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM UV RAYS WITH OBAGI!

We have all heard of UV rays and how they are harmful to our bodies but what many people do not know is that there are two types of UV rays known as UVA and UVB. My patients which I follow with a Obagi360 ® or Obagi-C ® Systems or Obagi Nu-Derm ® know how it is important to use the correct sunscreen protection. Omnce again, not all of them are sufficiently effective to protect your skin

These rays affect the body in the same way ,but UVA is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself against these harmful rays on a consistent basis and not just when the sun is out!

These rays are the cause of sunburn, brown spots (sun spot), rapid ageing of the skin and an enlarged risk of skin cancer. Patients who start having dark spots , more they wait to treat it more those spots get deeper and harder to treat to remove them.

However, there is no need to fear! With the Sun Protection range from Obagi, your skin is guaranteed to look younger and radiant with long lasting effects!

Depending if you have a dry or sensitive or oily skin or if you want an added antioxidant in the cream or if you prefer a physical sunscreen, a sun protection product that deflects and scatters UV rays instead of absorbing them, Obagi have them all . Also, some of the Obagi sunscreen exist with a tinted version like Obagi Sun Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF50 ; it uses fine particles of Zinc Oxide and Octinoxate to ensure your skin remains healthy and natural, fragrance free for all skin types !

As a reminder, don’t forget , avoid the sun between the hours of 10am – 2pm may to help reducing the risk of premature skin ageing.

Try it out and make sure to protect your skin for a great start in September!

WANT BEAUTIFUL HAIR ? TRY MESOTHERAPY

Do you feel like your hair has become dull and shineless? Do you spend countless hours searching for the miracle product that will restore your hair’s lost beauty?

Then try mesotherapy for hair beautification! The benefits of Mesotherapy for hair include the restoration of your hair’s health and shine, and can even aid with hair loss problems, such as Alopecia.

How does Mesotherapy work? Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that consists of microinjections in your target tissues, to stimulate the mesoderm. This relieves a wide variety of symptoms and conditions of the hair.

Mesotherapy brings around the hair follicle a broad range of vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids and co-enzymes so that the hair follicle can grow and survive through correct blood circulation and the excess of DHT (Dyhydrotestosterone) is neutralised.
This treatment also stimulates natural hair growth, with chances of good results for patients being higher than 90%. As hair loss is provoked by hormone imbalances, lack of nutrients and bad blood circulation, mesotherapy is able to restore the essential nutrients that the hair follicles need.

At theLondonFacialCare, I use the U225 Mesogun. That allows the rapid replacement of plasma into the scalp, making it a painless procedure with very minimal discomfort. How long does mesotherapy take to work? It depends with every patient but results can be noticed after the second session. Patients usually resume their daily activities right after injection, making it a simple routine they can adopt in their lives.

CAN ALOPECIA BE CURED ?

Alopecia is a hair loss condition, and is a terminology that refers to different forms of hair loss, both scarring and non-scarring ones.

Alopecia is usually caused by differing factors. These range from physical and emotional stress, imbalance of nutrients and vitamin deficiencies as well as hormone imbalances. It can also be due to hereditary factors, when expressed in many male pattern baldness.

However, here at TheLondonFacialCare, we are able to treat non-scaring alopecia as well as prevent it. Often referred to as Alopecia Areata, this condition is reversible with the right aesthetic treatments.

I am able to treat localised areas of hair loss (patches) that still have the hair follicle bulb intact, by using Plasma Therapy (PRP). This treatment has shown that up to 70% of patients do experience extra hair growth from active follicles.

But what is so special about the PRP technique? Well, growth factor molecules associated with platelets include the promotion of growth, collagen differentiation and even specialised formation of the blood vessel.

Side effects are also very minimal. With minimum discomfort during the procedure, our patients experience a noticeable reduction in hair loss. Fine miniaturised hair starts to thicken and this is usually noticeable by three months since the first application. So patients find their hair easier to manage, thicker and in better condition. Patients are highly satisfied with the results and continue to have maintenance treatments every six months.

So why not consider PRP with us for a hair regrowth treatment? It is a safe and effective treatment for hair thinning and we are sure you won’t be disappointed!

DOES PRP WORK FOR HAIR LOSS ?

Does PRP work for hair loss? Hair loss therapy and hair loss treatments are one of the most sought for treatments on the market, often misleading patients who really want to fix hair loss problems.

Patients tend to be disillusioned with hair growth treatments, as they have usually attempted some which haven’t worked or think that hereditary conditions determine the outcome of any possible treatment.

However, PRP treatment has proved to be effective on natural hair growth at surprising levels. PRP is used as hair loss prevention as well as hair loss treatment. But is it enough to solve the problem on its own?

WHAT IS PROFHILO ?

What is Profhilo. Is it the right treatment for you?

Profhilo is one of the newest anti-ageing techniques developed in Italy in 2015. it has really boomed the aesthetic industry! It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel.it treats skin laxity through skin bio-remodelling.

A great alternative to dermal fillers. It combats tired looking skin and the loss of facial volume by stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin. With a higher degree of spreadability, it doesn’t produce lumps. Profhilo is capable of releasing the hyaluronic acid at a slower pace.

PROFHILO OR DERMAL FILLERS ?

Profhilo or Dermal fillers ?

As we age, our skin is confronted to a lessened production of collagen and elastin. Our skin become thinner and less elastic.

Until recently, dermal fillers have been the dominant anti-ageing and non-surgical product on the market to deal with those issues. Now, new options in the industry, such as Profhilo, can easily create confusion at what is the right treatment for our desired results!

So, Profhilo or Dermal fillers ? Both dermal fillers and Profhilo are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). Dermal fillers are usually bio- degradable liquid gels that contain anaesthetics to ensure a less painful procedure. Profhilo is made of a pure HA technology and is not targeted at volumising the face like dermal fillers.

Profhilo acts as a skin booster. Profhilo provides hydration, production of collagen and elastin by bio- remodelling the skin.

Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo doesn’t need anaesthetics. The application of this product consists of only 5 injection sites to be carried. it makes its application easier and less painful.

Profhilo is easily spreadable. it adapts easily to the structure of your face without producing lumps. Profhilo can equally be used as a preventive measure to avoid wrinkles and lines, as well as a solution to skin laxity problems on older patients.

However, dermal fillers still remain one of the best treatments at targeting specific areas and concerns of the patient. These include areas like nasolabial folds, the tear trough area and the chin area.

Dermal fillers are also one of the best options to target concerns of volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face area, whilst Profhilo is a great option to maintain a balanced look, with unsurpassable skin health.

All cases are different. A full assessment of the patient is required. In many cases, the combination of different anti-ageing treatments will provide the best result possible, remodelling the face without inflated the face by using too much fillers. Profhilo is the perfect answer to be combined with fillers !

TOP ANTI-AGEING TIPS FOR SKIN

Looking for some anti-ageing tips ?

As we get older, we tend to cross paths with ageing signs that are more simple to prevent and solve than we think!

The little things matter, when it comes to keeping a healthy and radiant skin, but we don’t know many of what they entail!

This is why i want to let you in on the secret tips to skin anti-agers!

One of the worst causes of an ageing skin is sun exposure. UV exposure damages your levels of elastin and collagen at unprecedented levels, causing your skin to droop and to form wrinkles. The best advice out there is to use your sunblock every day, with an SPF protection of at least 30. This can be used in combination with makeup bases and moisturisers that also include UV protection. Lastly, it is best to avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., which is when Mr. Sun works at its full potential!

Another great anti-ageing tip includes the great advantages of using a topical cream that contains retinoid and AHA (alpha hydroxyl) as part of your skin care regimen. Retinoid, combined with an anti-inflammatory agent and an anti-oxidant will smoothen your skin for a healthier appearance.

I highly recommend the use of the ZO Skin Health products, with results showing within 2 months. However, make sure to do your homework and gradually introduce them to your skin regimen as there is a time of adaptation, and each case is different. If you pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid retinoid.

Lastly but not least, time is the essential key in finding the right skin regimen for you. Money is not necessarily the key to achieving the perfect skin care treatment!

Including a routine for both the day and evening is essential to prevent ageing of the skin. Essentially, sunscreen during the day is a must! In the evenings, it is important to remove all your makeup and use a cleanser before the application of retinoid and then a moisturiser. No exceptions should be made after long night outs, as that could lead to outbreaks and deterioration of your skin’s regenerative process. Also, it is a good idea to try peels and exfoliation once a month. It works for most and by being a deeper process, it stimulates collagen growth and skin regeneration, Obagi Peel radiance is my recommendation .

Hope you’ve enjoyed my anti-ageing tips ! And why not book a consultation to complement your skin care regimen with a treatment? My assistants will be more than happy to book you an appointment with me!
