Clinical treatment option

Box scars and ice pick scars are scars with deep indentations which are effectively empty space and it is very difficult to remodel empty space. So we need to fill them with new tissue, and then stimulate skin regeneration processes to work to remodel this new rapidly produced scar tissue with more normal skin tissue which will have greater elasticity and structure.

Using Enerpeel TCA strong it is possible to pipette this solution into the scar ‘hole’, and allow the acid to cause frosting and then scabbing. Once the skin has healed and the scab gone, then techniques such as using dermoroller's can then initiate the replacement of the scar tissue with new skin.

Environmental Shield

Combat Dark Spots and Sun Damage

Daily exposure to UV rays, toxins and pollutants takes its toll on your skin in the form of Environmental Aging. The breakdown of collagen and weakening of elastin can lead to premature or accentuated wrinkles, and damage to the melanocytes, skin’s specialized pigment producing cells, can result in dark spots or age spots. 

Environmental Shield products harness the power of Vitamin-C and antioxidants to undo existing environmental damage to your skin and prevent future damage. Environmental Shield products, used as part of an Inclusive Health™ lifestyle, can give you firmer, youthful skin that’s Better Every Day®.

Skin AgEing Management

 
iStock_000032795504_Double.jpg

The aging process is a combination of factors.

Three Types of Ageing

  1. Cell Loss and Shrinking Tissue. Cell division is a process by which the cells divide and create new, healthy cells to replace cells that are worn out.

  2. Too Many Cells (Cellular Senescence) Cellular senescence is when cells reach the point that they can no longer divide but refuse to die.
  3. Extracellular Protein Cross-Links.
  • Expressions and facial movements over time lead to the development of ‘dynamic’ wrinkles where structural fibres such as collagen and elastin become aligned in a particular direction. E.g. laughter lines, frown lines. 
  • Lines become deeper and more permanent as our skin’s ability to retain moisture reduces through age related reduced manufacture of various skin ingredients such as skin lipids and hyaluronic acid. 
  • Reduced production of Hyaluronic acid leads to a reduced capacity to hold water and also allows youthful short chain collagen fibres to come together and bind into longer more rigid collagen which leads to an older face shape. 
  • Elastin production also decreases and gravitational effects then lead to sagging and bags and more pronounced ‘functional’ wrinkles and lines. 
  • A build up of lymph and an increase in pigmentation coupled with ongoing gradual damage causes skin imperfections such as thread veins, plaques, age marks and dark under eye bags. 

 

The speed at which these changes happen vary with each individual and genetics have a lot to do with this, but free radical activity damages all these structures over time and constant bombardment ages us all, but some are more resistant to their effects than others. However reducing free radical stress is a major part of sustaining and promoting youthful looks. Free radicals are damaging chemicals produced as a bi-product of most chemical reactions in the skin and they are also generated by exposure to many external, environmental and dietary things such as in alcohol, cigarettes and particularly UV radiation. 

 

So in essence we need to:

A) Control the loss of Hyaluronic acid and stimulate new. Ideally before levels have reduced so that wrinkles form and collagen fibres start to bind together
B) Maintain the quality, type and level of collagen and elastin and promote renewal.
C) Enhance the lipid components in the skin to support barrier function and skin cell viability.
D) Reduce exposure to and the generation of free radicals by mopping them up before they do damage
E) Improve oxygenation of tissues and also lymph drainage to remove toxins from the skin.

Anti-Aging Products for Wrinkles

Genetic Ageing is a process that eventually happens to everybody. The body’s natural process of ageing means that over time skin-firming collagen will begin to deplete and skin-smoothing elastin will weaken. As this process begins to take place, skin loses its support structure and fine lines and wrinkles form on the face and neck and in the sensitive skin around your eyes. 

Age Reform anti-ageing products are developed to fight wrinkles by working to firm and hydrate skin, improve cell turnover so that your firmest and most youthful looking skin is always exposed. Age Reform products as part of an Inclusive Health™ lifestyle can give you firmer, more youthful skin that’s Better Every Day®.

Enerpeel® Neck is based upon Pyruvic Acid & Lactic Acid and is indicated for use on the neck, chest and Décolleté to improve the appearance of age-related imperfections. One of the ingredients of Fillast®, acetyl glucosamine is also present in the solution to help increase the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin, to provide a marked plumping effect.

Enerpeel® - the most effective skin remodelling solution in the Enerpeel® range - is available in different strengths

(which provides medium-depth remodelling which offers the deepest -and therefore most profound - remodelling for the skincells).

An Enerpeel® will improve colour, freshness, texture, skin tone, and can even help soften scarring, Ice pick scars and fine wrinkles.

It will also help to remove superficial discolouration, such as age spots.

DEHYDRATED DRY SKIN

 

Hydrate for Healthy, Radiant Skin

Healthy skin is hydrated skin. KYDOLCE Cosmeceutical moisturisers combine skin-improving ingredients with healthy topical hydration for a complete glow. Daytime moisturisers combine lightweight moisture and sun protection, while nighttime moisturisers hydrate more intensely while taking advantage of your body’s natural restorative cycle.

Our medical skincare range of products

are an effective product which delivers a calming action to rapidly & effectively control the signs of irritation; as well as a desensitizing effect whereby the products increase the tolerance thresholds of easily irritated skin, to reduce the frequency and degree of itching and burning. 

It also has the ability to maintain the natural protective functions of the skin while also hydrating to reduce unpleasant tightness. Its triple-action formula comprises barrier lipids which help prevent water loss and boost Essential Fatty Acids in the skin; Xylitol, an effective water-binding agent which boosts the level of water in the upper layer of skin; and MSM which is an excellent anti-inflammatory with a desensitizing and anti-irritating effect.

As a consequence of the natural process of ageing, skin-firming collagen begins to diminish and skin-smoothing elastin begins to weaken.

 

When this process starts you may experience fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck as well as around your eyes.

KYDOLCE Cosmeceutical anti-aging products are developed to combat the formation of wrinkles by blending the best of science and nature into products that firm and hydrate; improve cell turnover to expose younger, healthier skin and boost collagen production.

KYDOLCE Cosmeceutical products, combined with KYDOLCE Cosmeceutical cell-step skin care regimen:  can get you firmer, more youthful skin that’s as part of your skin cell life management programme, can give you healthy, glowing skin that’s good from the inside out.

The use of our medical range to reduce oil on the skin can improve clinical treatments.

PSORIASIS & ECZEMA SKIN

Ceramides and Skin Disease

Eczema sufferers have significantly fewer ceramides in their Stratum Corneum.

Psoriasis sufferers in contrast have the same number of ceramides compared to people with normal skin. However, the psoriasis-sufferers have less ceramide 1, 3, 4, and a sub-set of 5 and 6; and more ceramide 2 and another sub-set of 5. 

 

Replacing Ceramides improves eczema. Recent studies have shown that lipids can be replaced with topical preparations. 

 

Interestingly, all three lipids have to be replaced at a certain ratio to restore the barrier function of the skin. If the incorrect balance of lipids is applied, it actually takes longer for the skin to heal. The effect of ceramides has been studied in eczema, but there are also interesting outcomes being seen with psoriasis management.

 

Trans Epidermal Water Loss happens in everyone but is usually abnormal and excessive in people with skin issues , ageing skin, sun damaged skin, and many skin conditions ranging from acne, eczema , psoriasis, ichthyosis.

 

Ceramides play an important part in controlling cellular water loss and skin water loss. Water loss leads to dehydration. Dehydration impairs cellular function, cell communication and increases cell stress and can hasten cell death.

 

Skin can respond to dehydration by increasing skin lipid content to compensate, but in some this response is impaired and instead the skin can crack and dry. In other situations/types who have or develop a lipid and ceramide deficiency, liquid oil (sebum) production is increased, skin cell production increases to thicken the skin and increased keratin production creates an increased barrier to water loss (the horny layer).

 

As the stratum corneum also lines the neck of the hair follicle duct, then as it thickens here, this leads to a closure (blocking) of the duct and then the development of black heads and then through bacterial colonisation of the blocked duct;  acne.

SENSITIVE SUN PROTECTION

Most Sunscreens contain chemical filters for stopping UV penetrating and damaging the skin. UV causes inflammation and in some cases this can lead to excessive reddening and swelling. The swelling can trigger the melanin process and high exposure or prolonged exposure can lead to an the pigmentation process breaking free of internal controls resulting  in the development of hyper pigmented areas such as age spots, liver spots. 

When our hormones fluctuate away from the normal, then this can reduce these pigmentation control processes and lead to increased pigmentation in frequently exposed areas like the face and the hands. Examples of this are later in life with age spots and also in pregnancy with pregnancy mask. 

Clinical Aspects

Many clinical procedures thin the skin and make us more sensitive to UV rays. Also many clinical procedures can induce reddening and swelling in themselves. So it is important your clinician provides you with an effective sunscreen to use post clinical procedures. Better still ask them to provide one with redness reducing agents which can help combat any inflammation caused by the procedure. Be aware also that inflammation can also trigger increased pigmentation, which is why some people develop increased pigmentation after clinical treatments.

Reddening and swelling caused by injuries or treatments such as lasers and peels can also cause increased pigmentation responses in some, particular darker skin types. Lighter skin types often experience excessive reddening.

MENOPAUSEL & HORMONAL SKIN

 

Menopause, by definition, is when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 months. The time leading up to eventual cessation of these periods is referred to as ‘peri-menopause.’ This is marked by commonly known symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings and sleep disturbances. Women typically experience this in their late 40s to early 50s with an average age in the US of 51. Some women go through menopause quite smoothly while others struggle with this troubling myriad of symptoms.

 

Technically 85% of women have menopausal symptoms. For most these symptoms may stop within a year but in others may last up to 2-3 years. A decline in estrogen levels is the main contributor to these symptoms, although decreased levels of progesterone and testosterone play an important role as well.

While the overall trend is for estrogen levels to decrease it is not always a steady decrease. Women have a wide array of experiences with menopause, but one quite universal fact is how decreased estrogen levels affect the skin.

BODY HAIR

Unwelcome hair growth is not only unattractive, it’s also a source of embarrassment for both men and women. For women it’s usually facial hair but it may also include the underarms, legs or bikini line. For men, it might be ear, shoulder or back hair; it might be too long on their arms or even too thick on their chest.

Shaving, depilatories, electrolysis, waxing and hit-or-miss home devices are all available but they’re either out of date or simply out of favour.

We are the exclusive North West certified KYDOLCE DIODE™ hair removal provider, KYDOLCE DIODE™ technology is re-setting the standard of Intense Pulsed Light hair removal:

Superior cooling effect to increase patient comfort

Larger treatment area capability, reducing treatment time

Fast, effective, virtually pain free

No side-effects and no downtime

Hair grows in stages and it’s only during its growth cycle, when the hair is still in its follicle, that the hair removal process is most effective. While each session will noticeably reduce the appearance of hair, several sessions are necessary for your best outcome.

For smoother, sleeker and faster hair removal, KYDOLCE DIODE™ is safe for all skin types, tones and ethnicities and provides permanent hair reduction. Now you can always be hair-free and care-free; ready for your close-up… or just comfortable about getting close.

BACK PAIN

Radio-frequency ablation

 

Radiofrequency ablation, or radioblation, is a back pain treatment that is used to disrupt the transmission of signals from the nerves to the brain. In our bodies, we may experience pain either due to chemical or physical changes around tissues that the nerves convert to pain signals, due to damage to the nerves themselves, or due to neurologic pathology to the nerves that causes them to repeatedly fire pain signals to the brain.

 

Regardless of the source of the pain signal, the ultimate destination for it is to travel up the spinal cord and into the centre of the brain responsible for interpreting pain signals. Our ability to experience pain is healthy mechanism for realising that there is something wrong with our body, which causes us to avoid doing whatever we were doing to cause the injury in the first place.

 

When pain becomes unhelpful to us is when we feel pain due to injuries that aren't going to heal themselves. Chronic pain may make it harder to move, it may diminish our spirits, and affect our ability to lead a normal life.



One way to experience pain relief without the need to put toxic medications in our bodies is to disrupt the signals in certain nerve branches from reaching the brain.

 

With radio frequency ablation, a specialised piece of equipment is used to produce an electrical current by a radio wave to heat up a specific area of a nerve, in order to diminish or block its ability to transmit pain signals.

 

This treatment is typically done for people with chronic back pain conditions that have not responded to conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy. 

 

These treatments have long lasting analgesic effects when successful. Pain relief from these treatments may last for 6 months and even years, in some cases. The reason that this treatment doesn't provide permanent pain relief is because the heat delivered to cook the nerve doesn't destroy the nerve completely, and new nerve fibres may eventually regenerate. Still, this treatment has long lasting success, in many cases. More than 70% of patients who have this procedure experience significant back pain relief.



Side effects/complications associated with this procedure are rare, and they are usually temporary when they occur. Side effects include some bruising and swelling around the affected structures, and typically go away after a few days. Not all people will be good candidates for this procedure. Doctors will not recommend patients who have a history with bleeding problems or infections to undergo this procedure.
