Your skincare journey

By Dr. Raquel Amado on the 28th January 2022

If you’re considering undergoing medical aesthetic treatments, you’re not alone. You might already know what treatments you’d like, or perhaps you have a particular skin concern, or a problem area, that you’d like to treat. Together, we can assess your unique requirements and tailor a treatment plan for you. So, let’s talk more about the process and how it works.

Skin scanner

It’s often helpful to consult an expert on your skin to ensure you’re using the right products and embarking on the right aesthetic treatments. You might benefit from a different treatment to the one you think you need, which is why I encourage the use of our skin scanner device.

Using the skin scanner, I can help you to find out exactly what your skin needs and what your skin type is. By assessing the different layers and qualities of your skin, using a mix of touch and scans, I can tailor personalised skincare plans to address your concerns. 

We’ll also have a consultation ahead of any treatment where we’ll discuss your skin health, your medical history, your lifestyle and what you hope to achieve for your skin.

Treatments

Once we’ve used the skin scanner to determine your skin type and what your skin needs, we’ll be in a good position to move forward.

There are several skin conditions that you could be struggling with, from rosacea, acne, scarring and age spots through to skin concerns such as dark circles under the eyes, sagging skin and wrinkles. It might be that you could benefit from an anti-wrinkle treatment or a procedure that will aid the treatment of rosacea. Every individual’s needs are different and so will require a different approach.

Below are some examples of aesthetic treatments that I might suggest, depending on your skins needs.

Microneedling – this treatment can be used to treat several skin concerns, from dull and ageing skin to scarring and hyperpigmentation. It can also greatly improve fine lines and wrinkles and help to achieve a more radiant, youthful appearance. I use the SkinPen for all Microneedling treatments. The SkinPen uses tiny, adjustable needles to make controlled punctures in the upper layer of your skin giving optimal results. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger.

Skin boosters – if your skin needs hydration and collagen stimulation then skin boosters are an injectable treatment that is designed to deliver just that.  It will not change the shape of your face it will give you amazing looking skin. Profhilo  and Hydro deluxe are a revolutionary injectable treatment of hyaluronic acid which lessens the signs of ageing skin. Profhilo increases hydration in the skin, making it firmer and more youthful looking. It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increasing the elasticity of the skin and giving you a natural radiance.

Chemical peels – if you’d like to get a natural glow back, a chemical peel is a great way to rejuvenate your skin, making it appear firmer, improving its texture and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. The peel is applied gently to the face, removing the outermost layer of skin and taking with it all those unwanted dead cells, while encouraging the regrowth of new cells.

Antiwrinkle injections – if you’re worried about fine lines and wrinkles, then Anti-wrinkle injections can help you to achieve a more youthful appearance. It’s a non-invasive procedure, where a small injection is administered to facial muscles to smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines.

Dermal fillers – dermal fillers are injections made up of a bio compatible   gel containing hyaluronic acid. Our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, although our ability to produce it decreases as we age. Dermal fillers replace this much-needed hydrating nutrient. This treatment can be used on several areas to improve sagginess, lines and folds.

All of these treatments may sound a little scary and painful however in the right hands that should not be the case.

Finding the right practitioner

Before you book into an aesthetics clinic, it really helps to take the time to get to know your chosen provider. Check out pictures of their work and read reviews, as this will all help you to feel more comfortable and assured. There are plenty of these on my website and I am more than happy to answer questions to put your mind at ease.

Read up on your practitioner too to make sure they have all the necessary medical qualifications; you can find out more about me and mine here.

Before any treatment, you’ll need to have a consultation. Consultations are essential to ensure that I can prescribe the most appropriate treatment for you, (you should never have aesthetics treatments done without a Consultation) so please do keep that in mind.
