Skin Hydration Therapy is a treatment specifically designed to improve skin hydration and elasticity, resulting in a more refreshed appearance and a natural, healthy glow in the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. We only use the most popular brands of skin revitalisation products, which have been extensively studied in clinical trials. These products contain Hyaluronic acid to revitalise the skin by providing deep dermal hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all cells of the body (approximately 56% of our skin is made up of HA) that helps hydrate and add volume to our skin. Naturally occurring HA is broken down by the body every day so it is constantly being replaced. As we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes, so the moisturising and plumping effects of HA decrease. This results in skin that looks dull and wrinkled and feels dry and rough to the touch. By replenishing HA lost through ageing, the skin is rehydrated resulting in improved elasticity and tone. Skin Hydration Therapy provides lasting skin care from within – giving skin that natural, revitalised, healthy glow. An initial, intense treatment usually comprises of 3 treatment sessions, three to four weeks apart followed by a maintenance treatment every 4-6 months.
Many patients notice that once they have had the treatment, friends, family and colleagues comment that they look different but are unable to comment on what has changed. Skin Hydration Therapy is a subtle enhancement rather that a dramatic change. Recent studies have shown that 95% of patients are delighted with their treatment and 85% would recommend it to a friend. The results are typically long lasting (3-6months) but to achieve optimal results maintenance treatments should be carried out. Factors which affect the longevity of results include: your age, your physiology, your lifestyle (smoking and sun exposure) and the amount injected.
