Covid 19… Maskne and Dermal fillers

Maskne after covid-19

How are you all finding this lockdown? The first one was new and scary but personally, whilst absolutely necessary, I’ve found this one to be a bit of a chore but hopefully  the vaccination programme will avoid the need for further lockdowns 🙂

Wearing masks all day has it’s ups but mostly downs, mainly maskne ie acne and sore skin in the mask area.  We have found the Obagi’s  Clenziderm foaming wash (£30) and pore therapy (£30), both containing oil dissolving 2% salicylic acid, can reduce breakouts in as little as one week. Obagi’s wonderful  Hydrate (£40) hydrates and protects the skin from the rubbing effects of wearing a mask. The combination of using these products have been found to me very effective at controlling maskne breakouts

Dermal fillers, Covid 19 infection and vaccination has recently been discussed in the non-surgical aesthetic community.  There have been some, indeed very few, reported cases of mild to moderate swelling and hard lumps in some areas of dermal filler placement  (tear troughs, cheeks, lips) that, whilst distressing, quickly subsides.  It is important to note that swelling and lumps of dermal filler can occur with any vaccination, illness or excessive UV exposure. The current vaccination programme is targeting the entire adult population which includes the age group that mainly has dermal fillers.  Whilst research is always ongoing, current advice is not to have dermal fillers 2 weeks before and 3 weeks after your Covid 19 vaccination, Covid 19 symptoms or ongoing symptoms from infection. Previous dermal fillers have not been found to be a problem and there has been no reactions associated with  Azzalure, Botox and Profhilo treatments.

It is very exciting to be coming to the end of the 2nd lockdown and I am very much looking forward to seeing you all again.

We are excited to announce that our Jane Iredale training has been completed and our stock of mineral foundation has arrived.

How to Get Party Perfect Skin This Season

How to Get Party Perfect Skin This Season

With Christmas parties, New Year’s Eve and a full festive season ahead, now is the time to book your next skin treatment. For fresh party-ready skin, light chemical peels are perfect as they can revive dull and congested skin, leaving it glowing and radiant.  Long term they can treat pigmentation, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and sun damage.

The Benefits of a Pre-Christmas Chemical Peel

  • Exfoliates tired skin
  • Treats sun damage caused over the summer months
  • Stimulates production of new collagen, fibroblasts and elastin
  • Leaves skin feeling fresh, clear and ready for the New Year

Plan, peel, party

With medium depth peels, such as our Jessners LA peel, it is always recommended to avoid scheduling within a week of a social event as the skin can take up to 10 days to heal depending on the depth of the peel. However, winter is the ideal time to start a series of light peels to lessen the risk of sun exposure. Light peels can smooth and brighten the skin, treat fine lines and acne, and require little or no recovery time – a perfect way to get that party glow.

Due to their prescription strength ingredients, chemical peels should only be performed by trained healthcare professionals such as nurses and doctors.

Your time to shine

To enhance the effectiveness of your peel, we recommend adding a session of Omnilux LED Light Therapy to your treatment. Omnilux harnesses the power of light to deliver safe, effective skin rejuvenation. It’s a totally painless and natural treatment that leaves the skin firmer, reduces pores and gives the face a fresh natural shine.

To book your pre-party treatments, get in touch today or give Cathy a call on 07856 127082.
