Nurse prescriber and medical director of Skinboost, Caroline Tripp, explains why she believes the treatment choice at Skinboost deliver the best overall natural results.
There are a lot of things to celebrate about getting older, like having more freedom to do the things we enjoy. However, most of us want to look and feel our best for as long as we possibly can.
We can take steps in looking after ourselves; we all know that a healthy lifestyle is helped by good diet, regular exercise and good skin care.
As we are all living longer, it makes perfect sense to look after ourselves even more to enrich our future years.
Modern advances have given us the choice to consider more treatments - it’s all about making the right choice for you.
We know that good skin care is about hydration and protecting the skin, but there is a limit to the effects you can get with a serum alone; as we lose hydration and plumpness to the skin as we age overtime, there are other options which will deliver results directly where they are needed.
Things are moving fast within the field of aesthetics and it can be difficult to keep up-to-date with the latest procedures and products and, more importantly, as treatments progress, which will give the most natural results.
It can be difficult to determine what works - and more importantly what doesn’t.
This is where practitioner choice is so important; finding a clinic that is knowledgeable and experienced enough to be able to guide you in your choice of treatment, based on the optimum outcome for you within your budget.
There are different ways to treat the skin - there are different modalities which work in different ways, whether it’s plumping, smoothing, resurfacing or stimulating.
More advanced clinics, which are serious about the health of your skin and getting results long-term, will offer alternative treatments alongside the well-known Botox and fillers. This is because there are more options available and science has advanced.
At Skinboost, we have seen a trend in aesthetics over the years moving towards treatments which work on the skin condition rather than overuse of toxin and fillers, which are available at Skinboost and give excellent results. These still have their place when used well, and are unlikely to be replaced within the near future.
However skin revitalising, tightening and refreshing treatments are more often part of the plan, or can be used stand-alone for those not wanting to go down the toxin and filler route.
There is a complete portfolio of science/evidence-based treatments available to help you hold back the years and keep you looking and feeling your best.
Other options are Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, which is a safe and natural approach to anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation by harnessing the body’s own healing mechanism by using your own blood.
This revolutionary treatment is a long-term approach to slowing down and reversing the ageing process by stimulating the growth factors where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.
PRP stimulates the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in a more youthful freshening appearance.
It is particularly good for the under eye area, which is a difficult area to treat within aesthetics and is often the first area to show signs of ageing.
INTRAcel skin tightening is another example, which is particularly good for the neck and jowl line but which is also used for the full face to rejuvenate and tighten the skin.
The treatment combines three cutting edge technologies; radio frequency, dermal needling and fractional treatment. Downtime is only a couple of days and the results are truly stunning.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm Restylane, when used well, really give a wow effect to the face through artistic precision and careful placement, which is underpinned by knowledge and comprehensive training by leading experts.
At Skinboost you will never be advised a treatment which will not be right for you ethics and morals play a strong part in what Skinboost is about.
We believe that you have the choice to be the best version of yourself, and we have a number of options available.
At Skinboost, it’s all about choosing the way you want to age.
