Now that it’s wintertime it’s safe to say that the elements are not being particularly kind to our skin. The dry air, whipping winds and chilly temperatures can really have an impact on its texture and this – in addition to the central heating we all love to turn on whilst indoors –has a tendency to result in rough, dry and dehydrated skin.
Thankfully here at The Medispa by Matty we have the perfect treatments to give your skin a much-needed glow, stimulate collagen production and help remove dead skin.
1. Jessner Peel
The Jessner Peel is specifically designed to remove superficial layers of skin, dry out active acne, dislodge blackheads, reduce shallow wrinkling and scarring, help lighten hyper pigmentation and improve the overall appearance and health of sun-damaged, acne prone, aging skin. Just what we need to get our skin looking fresh again!
Downtime: up to one week, slight flaking.
2. Medical Microdermabrasion
Medical Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, painless procedure that deeply exfoliates the skin and removes the dull, dead skin cells from the surface to reveal younger skin. It is effective at reducing fine lines, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation and acne scars as it stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen networking in the deeper layers of the skin. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and provides excellent results for fine lines, wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, scar reduction, excess oil production, skin pigmentation and dull, stressed and congested skin. Definitely a must-have treatment during winter…
3. IPL Photo Rejuvenation
One of the most effective ways to improve skin texture, fade pigmentation and minimise diffuse background redness is with IPL photo rejuvenation. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a rejuvenating treatment for your skin which gradually and naturally smooths away areas of uneven pigmentation, spotting, and redness. This is just perfect during the coldest months when our skin has a tendency to look less than flawless.
Cost: From $250
4. Fractional Laser
Fractional Laser is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. No matter how old you are, sun exposure, environmental conditions and lifestyle can contribute to lackluster skin. Fractional Laser is a great choice for refreshing your skin, helping to slow or prevent early signs of aging and maintaining the skin to look younger for longer.
Downtime: Up to one week, some initial swelling and redness followed by dryness
Cost: $550 with additional complimentary microdermabrasion treatment to be completed a week later
