Skin Doctor Treatments that Improve Ageing Skin

We understand that not everyone wants to recognisably transform their features or their face. We understand that simply improving skin quality can make all the difference, the sort of difference that others will notice in your confidence or just as something they can’t seem to put their finger on. As a skin doctor, we believe in bolstering the skin’s health, which ultimately improves its appearance as well. Here are some of our top treatment choices for improving the health and appearance of ageing skin.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a treatment that is very effective at instilling a subtle bounce and glow to the skin. It uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, opening up needle columns in the dermis. These minute wounds encourage the skin remodel itself from the inside-out, producing fresh collagen and elastin to help heal the damage. Because your collagen levels cease production are fall in your 20s and 30s, this fresh production ensures that a little added volume and bounce is brought to the treatment area. This isn’t a noticeable difference as it would be with dermal fillers, though, which focus on augmenting a specific treatment area. No, this difference is routed in improved skin quality, health, and appearance. Because of the regeneration it inspires within the skin, it can also treat hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are another treatment provided by your skin doctor that help better the quality of ageing skin. Chemical peels use a solution that is applied to the surface of the skin, the acids wounding the top layer. This results in the already damaged skin cells drying out and dying, encouraging the body to shed them. Oil production is rebalanced, blemishes are drawn out, and the surface layer of dead skin cells is removed to reveal a fresher and healthier layer of skin beneath. This treatment also stimulates the production of fresh skin cells and fresh collagen, adding an extra cosmetic benefit to this transformative treatment. They are also capable of treating hyperpigmentation and even some mild acne scarring.

ZO Skin Health

ZO Skin Health is a professional skincare range that creates healthier, balanced skin. The range covers complex skin conditions such as rosacea, sun damage, inflammation, hyperpigmentation, ageing, and acne. The skincare ranges help to minimise the visible signs of your skin condition while also helping to prevent flare-ups and make them more manageable. For example, ZO Skin Health for pigmentation contains Vitamin A because it has molecules small enough to penetrate the epidermis and reach the skin receptors. This helps to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin and also lightens the skin to treat patchy hyperpigmentation.
