Profhilo

Why is Hyaluronic Acid so good for your skin.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occuring in the human body – This substance works as a magnet for moisture that help the skin cells retain as much as possible so that stays hydrated, healthy and plump.

Just a single gram of hyaluroinc acid has the impressive ability to hold up to six times its weight in water add to that a very smart ability to regulate that moisture within the skin cells and you have one genius product ingredient

Skin that is sufficiently hydrated feels super soft, plump and is visibly so much more radient.

How do I know if my skin needs more hyaluronic acid? as we age the amount of hyaluronic acid our skin cells naturally produce decrease by 10% from our 20s through to our 30s 40s 50s and beyond so our skins moisture levels drop significantly and this causes the skin to lose its elasticity which in turn will expose the visible signs of the aging process.

If you want to maintain a youthful complexion incorporating treatments like Profhilo is definatly a good idea.

It works wonders on every skin type even sensitive or breakout prone skin as well as oily complexions.

Hyaluronic Acid has antioxidant properties which means that it can act like a sheild against free radical damage think envoirmential agressors pollution, uv light, hyperpigmentation and overexposure to heat and cold.

Profhilo treatment is suitable for the Face, Neck, Hands and upper Arms.

Skin Peels

img_5967                                                                                                                                                                             

Skin peeling – Will make your skin and skincare products work better within minutes the acids lift away dead skin cells and trigger a train reaction. Signals are sent to the living cells below the skins surface which multiply and speed up to increase your own natural collagen production that increase your own natural collagen and elastin (Hyaluronic acid).

Peels work by sloughing off the top layer of dead skin cells and offer immediate results which will leave your skin looking radient and receptive. Your skincare products will perform much better after a facial peeling treatment because there will be no more dead skin cells restricting active ingredients from your products and their ability to penetrate your skin.

Low Risk – There are chemical peels that are very safe to use on every skin shade and every skin type without the risk of hyper pigmentation.

Custom – I know that using low precentages of multiple acids will give your skin much better results and with less irritation than a single acid at a higher strenght (FACT)

Know This – A flawless complexion is lying just beneath the surface of your skin.

Know This – A classic chemical peel treatment is the quickest way to reveal it.

Know This – Acid formulas have been refined since the 1990’s and so has my approcah to using them.

Know This – The goal now isnt so much to cause visable peeling, as it is to infuse the skin with ingredents that diminish lines, build collage and improve the skins texture.

Help your skin make a radical comeback and book yourself a facial peel soon.

Skin Boosters ! Dermal Fillers! and Botox! What is in the syringe?

With so many needles comes so much confusion so I have decided to write a brief summary on some of the most popular aesthetic injectible treatments available.

While many of you ask what is in the syringe ? well this very much depends on the exact type of treatment you have having done and below is a list of the more popular ones.

Skin Boosters.

The latest advancement in injectible technology, are skin boosting injectibles and these skin boosters treatments use a hyaluronic acid solution that is clinically proven to stimulate new collagen formation and increase elastin levels that have been depleted due to age and environmental factors. they also have the added bonous of diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and improving hydration and glow on the surface of the skin from within, these will leave your skin looking radiant and fresh as hyaluronic acid will help to hold water in the skin making it look and feel far more dewy while delivering a long lasting serum effect, without the serum.

Hyaluronic acid is the hero here amongt these treatment modalities.

Hyaluronic acid is used as it’s a potent natural moisturising factor that is naturally occurring and naturally found in your skin, it has the ability to draw 1000 times its weight in water within the skin so it is ideal for binding and retaining water molecules, that in turn wil provide the very best innate moisturisation.

It is important that you understand the effects of skin boosters is to maintain a natural apperance of visible movement, rather than a thick layer of filler! so no risk of pillow face and minimal downtime with these hydrating skin boosting treatments.

Profhilo.

Juverderm Volite.

Teosyal Redensity 1.

Sunkeos.

Two treatment sessions are required.

Lasts up to 24 months

Dermal Fillers.

Face contouring (or liquid face lifts ) continue to be popular – as its a no knife face sculpting option that utilises dermal fillers to restore facial volume and to also augment facial areas such as cheek and jawline helping to beautifully blance the facial profile so that volume restoration and natural collagen stimulation is achieved with dermal fillers and lip fillers.

Last approx 6 – 12 months depending on areas treated and Dermal filler used.

Mesotherapy.

The contrast between mesotherapy and hyaluronic acid lies in the additional componments of the meso cocktail and these include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and plant extracts making miso an excellent choice for treating skin conditions, scar tissue, pigmentation, aleopicea.

Botox

Botox on the other hand is responsible for freezing and or paralysing the facial muscles by slowing down muscle contraction at the motor point so that you have less movement in the areas where you have had a series of botox jabs.

Vitamin Deficiencies that show on your Skin

Most vitamin deficiencies will show up on the skin, while lack of vitamin A can cause scaly, dry skin, lack of B6 leads to skin ulcers, and lack of B7 can cause eczema. Lack of Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause vitiligo. Both C and E are antioxidants and their deficiency causes premature skin aging, wrinkles and dryness. Lack of vitamin will cause Psoriasis.

Vitamin A Deficiency = Skin Dryness.

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps in the formation and maintenance of healthy skin as well as teeth, if you dont get enough of this vitamin it will cause dry skin.

RDA 700mg/d for Women and 900mg/d for Men.

Vitamin B2 Deficiency = Skin Rashes.

Riboflavin plays a part in keeping your skin and vision healthy it is also important if you experience inflamed eyelids, hair loss or redness of your stratunm cornea (eye area).

RDA 1.1mg/d for Women and 1.3mg for Men.

Vitamin B3 Deficiency = Eczema.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin) deficiency causes a condition known as Pellagra which is characterised by the symptoms of dermatitis (eczema) it is also vital for the body to convert fat, protien and carbohydrates into energy.

RDA 14mg/d for Women and 16mg/d for women.

Vitamin B6 Deficiency = Skin Ulcers

Vitamin B6 is an important nutrient for the health of your skin, if you dont have enough of this Vitamin you migh experience flaking skin on your lips, ulcers in the corners of your mouth and skin rashes that itch. Vegetarians are especially at risk of low levels of this vitamin.

RDA 1.3mg/d for adults 19-50 years 1.7mg/d for Men 1.5mg/d for Women over 51 years.

Vitamin B7 (Biotin) Deficiency = Dermatitis

Vitamin B7 is a rare deficiency since its widely found in foods, however certian habits such as the consumption of raw egg whites, which contain a protien that inhibits the absorption of biotin may lead to a deficiency. Scaley dermatitis, dry skin and pale skin all point to a deficiency as well as hair loss. Vitamin B7 plays an important role in the bodys metabolism of energy, glycogen synthesis, fat synthesis, and amino acid metabolism.

RDA 30mcg/d for adults.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency = Vitiligo and Yellow Skin.

Vitamin B12 Helps keep your nerve and blood cells healthy it also plays a role in the making of your genetic material or DNA. Vegetarians and vegans may be particularly prone to vitamin b12 deficiency because it is only found in animal food sources. People who lack vitamin D can also develop pernicious anaemia, a condition where the body cannot absorb B12 from foods and is unable to make a sufficient quantity of healthy red blood cells. This condition is associated with vitiligo, a pigmentation disorder which will cause white patches to develop on your skin.

RDA 2.4mcg for adults.

Vitamin E Deficiency = Premature aging.

Vitamin E , a fat soluble vitamin, is an important antioxidant which helps fight harmful free radicals.

Free radicals are naturally formed in the body when we convert food into energy we are also exposed to free radicals through external environmental factors such as air pollution and sun damage which will accelerate aging and wrinkling our skin, vitamin E alone may not provide sufficient protection to your skin so you may also need to add vitamin C to increase photo protection of your skin through your diet.

RDA 15mg/d for adults.

Vitamin D Deficiency = Psoriasis.

Vitamin D can affect skin and is a contributory factor in Psoriasis, topical applications of vitamin D can improve this condition. did you also know that low levelsof vitamin D can affect your bone health and cause osteoporosis, taking a dietary supplement of Vitamin D also helps.

RDA 15mcg/d for adults.

Vitamin C Deficiency = Scurvy Skin

Vitamin C is important for the health of your skin as it has antioxidant properties, it also plays a crucial part in synthesis of collagen the protien that gives support and structure to your skin also when you have higher amounts of vitamin C it will provide protection from sun damage and if its deficient it can lead to dry, scaly and rough skin.

RDA 75mg/d for Women and 90mg/d for Men.

Today is the first day of summer and getting our skin ready to glow should be a top priorty for all of us. If you have missed peel season (Spring) do not fret as there are plenty more options available for you to choose from.

Why is it so important to have your skin prepped forthe summer months? Not only does your skin need to recover from the harsh elements of the winter months but if you transition your skincare routine between seasons you can start to reverse the damage and prevent a multitude of skin issues going forward.

For the most beautiful clear, hydrated and glowing skin all summer long remember that preping the skin for the summer months ahead should be considered the start of your holiday season prepration.

Here are my two favourite go treatments this time of year when I want to see super fast results immediatly and results that last.

PRP – aka (Vampire facial) this treatment is the absolute bomb when it comes to achieving visable skin renewal, rejuvination and collagen stimulation that continues for up to 3 months after the initial procedure and can last up to 2 years. The natural way of reversing skin damage by using your own blood platlets that are a very high concentrate of your own vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

Profhilo – Skin remodelling treatment that is one of the best ways to re introduce hydration beneath the skin and will increase elasticity and firmness for softer healthier hydrated skin and the benefits last approx 6-9 months.

Now is the time to rebooth your skin for the coming summer months.

Top Tips to help you take better care of your skin this summer.

1, Wear sunscreen daily SPF50+

2, Stay out of the sun between 10am – 2pm.

3, Wear sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection.

4, Be aware of any medications that increase your skin senstivity to the sun.

5, Check your skin often.

6, Make sure to wear a hat.

7, Hydrate with water often.

8, Advoid using tanning beds completely.

Finally if you must waer makeup in the sun go for a mineral makeup.

Plasma skin tightening treatment.

what are fibroblasts?

Fibroblasts are the skin cells of connective tissue they are the only skin cells that can make type III (collagen)synthesis with the tougher type I (collagen) over a period of 12 weeks.

Type III and Type I collagen in the skin is what helps provide strength to our skins defense against fine lines, wrinkles, micro furrows and really helps our skins elasticity, suppleness and hydration.

With age the skins fibroblasts become inactive to form fibrocytes these fibrocytes seldom produce collagen unless they are specifically reactivated by a wound healing process or an inflamatory process, aka (PLASMA) which is precise and will deliver a completely natural (Non surgical method).

Think hooded eyelids, under eye wrinkles, skin lifting, skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and skin resurfacing.

2019 Aesthetic Trends

New Year New You …

As we approach this coming year, talking of fresh starts, self improvment and resoulotions it is the perfect time to look towards up and coming beauty trends of 2019.

Make this year all about you …. as one of the major shifts in the aesthetic landscape is that people are now moving away from celebrity references and refocusing on their own individual beauty, opting instead to become the very best version of themselves.

Most of my clients have already begun to present filtered selfies as their prefered desired look when it come to enhancing their natural facial features a move that is very much welcomed by me too.

I have always encouraged my clients to focus on subtle results and personal enhancements, my motto, being less product and more treatment more often is key.

How Often Should You Get a Facial…

This being the most asked question I get in relation to facials, what is the ideal facial frequency?

The ideal would be bi monthly, cost and time aside what is actually the best protocal for your skin. I always recomend {that} clients have facials once per month {because} nothing that you do at home can replace professional attention, also your skin will be doing different things at different times! depending on the season and how your lifestyle contributes to your current skin condition.

Once per month is the ideal time because our skin cell turnover cycle is approx every 28 days.

While there is a wide range of facial treatment options facials can be broken down into the following categories.

Chemical Peels –  Perfect for skin exfoliation and deep cleaning the skin, also a great way to prep your skin for the more advanced facial procedures.

Micro – Needling – Perfect for speeding up the process of healing, renewing and repairing your skin.

Mesotherapy – Perfect for Skin rejuvenation by adding a cocktail of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to the skin that will in turn feed the dermis with 52 active ingredients that heal repair and replenish the molecular structure of your skin, think of this as food for the skin.

Profhilo – Perfect for increasing the vibrancy and elasticity of your skin, this treatment is best described as a bio-remodeller because the treatment stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin, so if your looking for that plumped – up result know that collagen is the main structural protien in our bodies and is responsible for that youthful skin glow regardless of age.

PRP – Vampire facial – Perfect if your looking for completely natural and exceptionally safe way to treat your skin, prp works by activating platelets that relaese growth factors from the granules in the platelets and the by introducing this plasma into the dermis.

As with any aesthetic facial treatments, it is vital that the procedure be carried out by a qualified, licenced and trained professional aesthetician who understand the various different treatment modalities and their place with regard to your present skin condition and the results that you are looking to achieve.
