SKIN CONDITIONS

AGEING SKIN

When it comes to premature ageing, most people think of lines and wrinkles, however there are many factors that affect our youthful appearance such as loss of firmness, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone, lack of radiance, loss of volume and lack of hydration.

Intrinsic ageing, also known as the natural ageing process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Within the skin, collagen production slows and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has a bit less spring. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly and the turnover of new skin cells decreases between the ages of 20 and 60. While these changes usually begin in our 20s, the signs of intrinsic ageing are typically not visible for decades. Our genetic makeup controls how quickly the normal ageing process happens.

A number of extrinsic or external factors can act individually or together on the normal ageing process to age our skin prematurely. Most premature skin ageing is caused by sun exposure. Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, diet and smoking.

Azure Treatments

  • IPL Skin Rejuvenation stimulates collagen synthesis and evens out skin tone, treating pigmentation and conditions related to sun-induced skin damage
  • Micro Needling is a very effective anti ageing treatment, it helps to restore normal cell function and increases collagen production, plumps skin reducing lines and wrinkles and reduces the appearance of large pores
  • LED Light Therapy is ideal for anyone wanting a non-invasive and proven anti-ageing treatment. Using optimised wavelengths of light for tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation and accelerates healing
  • Superficial Peels resurfaces skin, initiates collagen and elastin synthesis and helps evens out skin tone

 

SKIN PIGMENTATION

Hyperpigmentation is categorised by excessive pigmented areas of skin where cells known as melanocytes produce an excessive amount of melanin, leaving the skin darker in appearance and uneven in tone. Causes of pigmentation include sun damage (including sunspots, freckles), hormonal changes caused by the contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause. Hormonal pigmentation is also known as Melasma or Chloasma.

Azure Treatments

  • Superficial Peels, a series of which would be recommended depending of the depth of the pigment
  • Micro needling is also a very effective treatment for hyperpigmenation because it restores normal cell function and increases cell-to-cell communication, helping to regulate the production of melanin.  
  • IPL visible improvement for pigmentation, age/sun spots, broken cappillaries, removes skin imperfections, stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Advanced home care regime is highly recommended to follow in-between treatments. The use of Alpha Hydroxy Acid L-Lactic Acid, antioxidants, safe Tyrosinase inhibitors and high factor physical sunscreen are absolutely essential in not only effectively treating the pigmentation but ensuring it does not return

REDNESS

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that is categorised by erythema / red-flushing, broken capillaries & inflamed papule. Pustules may also be present. Some suffers also experience an itching or burning sensation in the skin. 

The cause of redness can often be a combination of factors including; heredity (genetics), environmental impact (pollution, extreme changes in temperature, sun damage), vascular dysfunctions, diet and lifestyle choices, medications, or a reaction to the demodex mite (a microscopic mite that naturally occurs on the skin).

Azure Treatments

  • LED Light Therapy is an excellent option. Supporting skin function by increased collagen production. This also helps to strengthen the skin, supporting the extracellular matrix and the capillary walls. Used in conjunction with the Benefit Peel treatment, they work hand-in-hand to make skin more resilient. Red light therapy is also very healing and anti-inflammatory. Helping to reduce redness and flushing within the skin
  • Advanced home care regime is also recommended to follow in-between treatments. Which would be discussed as part of your aftercare. With an anti-redness serum and a high factor physical sunscreen an absolute must for Rosacea & Sensitive skins

ACNE & SCARRING

Acne is commonly characterised by the presence of spots/pimples ranging from blackheads & whiteheads to inflamed lesions such as papules (no pus) or pustules (containing pus) and nodules (cysts). Inflamed acne is more severe and can lead to scarring due to the depth of the lesion.

Azure Treatments

  • LED Blue Light Therapy
  • Facial Peels
  • Micro Needling is very effective for acne scarring because it increases collagen production in the skin. For best results, micro needling can be used alongside peels as part of an overall treatment process to address any active acne, prior to treating the scaring
  • Advanced home care regime is also recommended to follow in-between treatments. Which would be discussed as part of your aftercare.
