Skincare and skin treatments for the post lockdown summer
Published on: May 11, 2021
Getting our skin prepped and primed for summer at the best of times is something to consider; however, during the lockdown, we’ve not been able to give our skin those vital in-clinic treatments to keep it in tip-top condition through the winter and springtime.
Now we are all able to slowly get back to a more normal life, at The London Cosmetic Clinic in Harley Street, we’ve got everything you need to get a youthful glow and arm your skin with the protection it needs over the summer.
As well as in-clinic treatments to help your skin be more resilient during the warmer climes, prepping the skin at home is vital to keep it looking and feeling soft, radiant and flawless. Drinking plenty of water, eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly can help maximise your skin’s resilience to the elements, pollution, and increase blood flow and circulation.
Then there are our in-clinic treatments!
At The London Cosmetic Clinic, we offer Obagi peels to prepare your skin for device-led and injectable treatments. The Obagi Radiance Peel is composed of salicylic acid, which is used to deeply exfoliate the skin. This peel is perfect for spring and summer as it’s less intense than a deep peel, so not likely to increase issues with sun sensitivity or hyperpigmentation due to sun exposure. Of course, we still highly recommend that you use a high-factor SPF at ALL times to protect your skin from the sun and especially after any peel. We recommend The Obagi Radiance Peel for superficial skin problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, mild to moderate sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, as well as acne and acne scarring. There may be some slight redness after your Obagi Radiance Peel, so a rich moisturiser, as well as a high-factor SPF, is advised after the treatment. An Obagi Radiance Peel can be a one-off treatment, but a course is recommended for best results.
Morpheus8 device-led skin treatment
Morpheus 8 is an in-clinic treatment available here at The London Cosmetic Clinic. It combines radiofrequency (RF) technology along with fractional micro pins (medical microneedling). These pins inflict minuscule micro-injuries into the skin, which stimulate a natural healing response. In short, this means the skin creates new collagen and elastin, which in-turns tightens and smoothes the skin over time, resulting in reduced fine lines, wrinkles and better skin laxity. As Morpheus 8 delivers fractional RF energy deep in to the dermis layers of the skin, it further enhances skin tightening and helps to reduce scar tissue.
Morpheus8 can treat the following skin concerns:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Sagging eyelids
- Dark circles
- Eye bags
- Laughter lines
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Dull or oily skin
- Sun damage
- Turkey neck
- Ageing hands
- Stretch marks
Patients can see significant results in the weeks that follow a Morpheus8 treatment. However, in a no-obligation consultation with one of our professional skin experts, you will be advised on whether a course of treatment would best suit your individual skin concerns. Morpheus8 can prep your skin to become more resilient and youthful-looking so that you glow for summer!
The Obagi-C Rx System is a complete product range to improve hyperpigmentation such as sunspots and dark spots significantly. It’s a prescribed range of products, therefore only available from medically qualified professionals. Obagi-C Rx contains prescription-strength hydroquinone as well as potent vitamin C. The system is ideal for the following skin concerns:
- Hyperpigmentation from sun damage, including freckles and age spots
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
The Obagi-C Rx system will usually consist of a cleanser, toning lotion, moisturiser, C serum and a high-factor SPF. However, your skincare professional at The London Cosmetic Clinic will create a bespoke system for your unique skin concerns and requirements for ultimate results throughout the summer months and beyond.
