Admired Clinic is committed to providing a range of non-surgical aesthetics treatments for both men and women. We understand the importance of
bespoke treatments to achieve age defying results using a combination of skin rejuvenating techniques. Our aim is to defer the natural process of ageing, enhance physical appearance, minimise premature ageing and achieve rejuvenating results.
One of our most popular combination treatments is the 3 in 1 Laser package, which tightens skin, stimulates collagen production and smooths skin texture and appearance. The treatment combines three of the most popular laser procedures in one convenient package that includes, Laser skin tightening, Radio Frequency treatment, Microdermabrasion and pigmentation treatment if needed. Sound confusing? Let us explain the process and benefits of each treatment.
Laser Skin Tightening
In a nutshell, laser “skin tightening” is NOT plastic surgery. During plastic surgery, excess or saggy skin can be pulled and stretched tight around a person’s face, neck or appendage, after which the excess skin is then removed (cut away and disposed of) and the newly stretched skin is then stitched into its new location. Thus, though it may look like the loose skin is “tighter” it actually is not tightened, rather it is stretched and relocated or re-positioned. As you can imagine, this can be quite traumatic to the skin.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
On the other hand, laser “skin tightening” is when the loose skin itself is internally tightened, as if it were a knitted sweater and its internal weave of fibres are now more tightly woven together than before. This kind of “skin tightening” is real, and is due to an internal strengthening of the skin’s collagen matrix that is in the dermal layer of the skin.
Let’s explain how to tighten skin: Getting back to the analogy of a knitted sweater, the skin actually does have an internal weave of fibres called collagen. When we are young, our collagen fibres are woven into a densely packed and tightly woven matrix that gives our skin its lift, tone, elasticity, resilience, fullness and strength. Pretty much, youthful, tight skin is all about your collagen. The more of it that you have, and the better shape it is in, the better and tighter your skin will look and feel.
When we age, and especially with excessive sun exposure, our collagen matrix begins to fall apart, and the fibres in our skin become loose and disconnected. This deterioration causes our skin to thin and weaken, resulting in looseness, sagging and wrinkling. The good news is laser “Skin Tightening” treatments are procedures that reverse this deterioration, and cause our collagen fibres to tighten up once again, and remodel into a tightly organized and densely packed weave of fibres. That is how to tighten skin!
The even better news is that “skin tightening” laser treatments are non-surgical procedures and are typically non-invasive, very safe, require little-to-no downtime and are relatively inexpensive. Generally speaking a series of laser skin tightening treatments at approximately 8-10 week intervals will do the trick.
How does a radiofrequency facial work?
Radiofrequency is all about stimulating your own collagen production. During a treatment a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with radiofrequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage – you do feel heat in the skin but it’s comfortable.
Is there any other discomfort or downtime involved?
It takes approximately 30 minutes to treat a whole face and the only discomfort is some feeling of heat in the skin (which not everyone gets). There is no downtime – you could easily have a treatment at lunchtime and go out that evening looking amazing!
What are the benefits and how long do they last?
You get an immediate tightening of the collagen fibres, so it’s great to do before an event, but it also gives a long-lasting lift and increased volume. It also continues to promote collagen production over the four-six weeks following a treatment.
Can radiofrequency help reduce lines and wrinkles?
It’s great for softening fine lines – especially the nose to mouth lines – as well as lifting the cheeks and tightening the jawline and an excellent choice for age prevention.
It a fantastic option for anyone experiencing loss of firmness and dullness in their skin. As well as stimulating collagen production, it also boosts oxygen levels in the skin, so it’s great for general radiance.
What do radiofrequency body treatments involve?
Radiofrequency can be a great treatment for cellulite, firming and contouring the body. In a treatment a larger head is used on the radiofrequency machine and higher temperatures so you get something called lipolysis, where fat begins to melt.
Microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates and resurfaces the skin and is the most popular skincare treatment in the UK for skin rejuvenation of all ages.
Suitable for all skin types, Microdermabrasion work on improving skin texture for a healthier complexion without the use of chemicals or Lasers.
Removing your skins outermost layers of dead cells stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of healthy new cells as well as clearing the way for nutrients and minerals in our skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
How does a Microdermabrasion work?
A microdermabrasion facial involves medical grade crystals vacuumed across the outer surface of the skin. The crystals remove the outermost layer by exfoliation, exposing living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated promoting new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of ageing. The treatment goes deeper than other modes of exfoliation to help the skin replenish itself by stimulating cell regrowth.
More than a just a facial, Medical Microdermabrasion offers instant results without any downtime.
What results can you expect?
You will notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment. Regardless of your skin’s condition, most clients will notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance. Many clients report their skin to be softer, smoother and younger looking immediately after treatment. To get the best results a course of 4-6 treatments is usually recommended.
How long is the recovery time?
There is no recovery time necessary with a Microdermabrasion Facial, for this reason it is the treatment of choice in the days leading up to a big event, wedding or special occasion. You could easily have the treatment during your lunch hour.
Who will Microdermabrasion benefit?
The benefits of Microdermabrasion are endless and is one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic treatments in our clinic and included in our 3 in 1 Membership Plan. It is also safe to use on all skin types and a fantastic treatment for anyone who wants their skin to have a healthy luminous glow. However, it is particularly helpful in treating specific skin conditions, including dull, rough texture, congestion, sun damaged and seborrhea (oily skin).
Laser pigmentation treatment (where needed)
Skin Conditions Treated:
• Sun Spots
• Age spots
• Flat pigmented birthmarks
What causes pigmentation / hyperpigmentation?
Environmental factors, sunlight, ultraviolet rays, hormonal changes, and some medications all contribute to pigmentation changes. These can range from freckles, sunspots, age spots to melasma and can occur on the face or body at any age. When the body produces either too much or too little melanin, this then results in hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, which appears as a dark or light mark on the surface of the skin.
Is laser pigmentation removal successful for freckles?
Yes! If pigmentation is in superficial lesions such as freckles and sunspots and can provide an effective solution in a few treatments.
Does the treatment hurt?
The level of discomfort can vary depending on a person’s sensitivity, but most clients tolerate the treatment very well with little discomfort. Of course, some areas of the body are more sensitive than others and can cause some mild discomfort. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kamoushi will discuss your options with you based upon your own tolerance and the body area to be treated.
