What makes a dull skin?
Dull skin (dull skin tone, skin clarity, rejuvenation) is one of the most common skincare complaints. When people talk about dull skin, they generally are describing skin that lacks radiance or glow that associates with young, healthy skin.
Dull skin tone can be a result of poor circulation. Common factors that cause dull skin include smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, dehydration, poor sleep and lack of exercise. These factors deprive the skin of much-needed oxygen and nutrients. Over time, the skin renewal process slows down as we age. In addition, poor skin care with build-up of dead skin cells, excess sebum and sweat, causes skin to become clogged.
The best way to prevent dull skin is to avoid smoking and stress, eat a balanced diet full of antioxidants and drinking plenty of water. Remove make up thoroughly by double cleansing and exfoliating your skin daily. Protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and use sunblock daily even on cloudy days. Exercise helps to encourage blood flow to the skin and gives the skin a natural glow. Laugh everyday as these small facial actions exercises the muscles of the face and improve the skin tone.
Ways to Treat Dull Skin
Q Switch Laser
Q Switch laser works to create microscopic holes in the epidermal layer of the skin to allow the laser light to target excess melanin and break it down for removal by body. It enhances the body’s natural process of renewal and ensures that new skin form is uniformly clear and free from pigmentation. It also stimulates collagen renewal and rejuvenates the skin.
Dual Yellow Laser
Dual Yellow Laser uses copper bromide technology to target inflammation and blood vessels, reducing the redness that accompanies acne and makes the skin appear more fairer. It also fades the appearance of post-inflammatory pigmentation (PIH) which are red/purple/brownish marks left on the skin after injury.
There is no downtime and treatment is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.
Hydrafacial and Basic Facials
Hydrafacial and Basic Facials help to clear closed and open comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) and prevents further acne breakouts from occurring. We employ a 4-step approach to better skin through cleansing, exfoliation, multi-masking, and deep hydration. Not only will your skin look refreshed you will also benefit from the pampering experience.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL uses intense broad spectrum pulses of light to target melanin pigmentation in the dermal layers of skin. The use of selective filters of varying shorter wavelengths allow for the treatment of skin and hair. The light energy is converted to heat energy in the targeted tissues and helps to breakdown excess pigmentation. It also gently heats the deeper layers of skin, allowing stimulation of collagen which in turn helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles.
Skinboosters boost the skin’s elasticity and you will notice a reduction of skin roughness. This hyaluronic acid filler is administered using a cannula and at one entry point only, with a safe distance to make it more comfortable for you and to ensure no bruising.
Use a good cleanser to remove dead skin build up, with gentle exfoliation, toner to tighten pores and vitamin C day and night to brighten skin. Use topical vitamin C in the day to protect skin and prevents pigmentation, and at night to help skin repair and rejuvenate.
