Dermalux LED Phototherapy at Anne Roberts, Oxton

Skin Care, Treatments / 14.07.20170 comments

Dermalux LED Phototherapy is based on the principle that living cells are able to absorb and are influenced by light and the treatment has long been recognised for its regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties.

While we often associate light exposure with skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin and can also accelerate our skin’s natural repair processes.

The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. On-going exposure to UV is very damaging but controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.

The Dermalux treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of this beneficial light energy and skin cells that are energised function better and regenerate faster which in turn leads to younger, healthy and radiant skin.

Following a Dermalux® treatment, clients can expect immediate improvement in skin tone, hydration and overall radiance which will continue in the following days. Redness and irritation is calmed. However, most changes occur naturally over a course of treatment.

The number of treatments required for optimum results is subject to a number of factors including indication, lifestyle factors and other procedures that may be included in the overall treatment programme. This will be assessed during the consultation.

Results can last for several months and regular maintenance treatments offer lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin.

HEY, GET YOUR OWN CLARINS!

Skin Care / 12.08.20160 comments

Have you ever gone to wash your face only to then discover that there are just a few drops left of your prized moisturiser? This may mean that the man in your life has been using your skin care products – again.

While the basic structure of a man’s skin may be the same as a woman’s, his skin has quite a few unique characteristics that make sharing facial products an unwise practice. For instance, even though signs of ageing appear in men’s skin similarly as they do for women, they don’t necessarily happen on the same time scale.

Men’s skin also is thicker than women’s, making it tougher and somewhat more resilient. Further, the oil glands in men’s skin produce more oil than women’s, giving men more “natural” moisture.

Because of differences such as these, it’s clear that men and women have different needs for their skin. Here at Anne Roberts, we stock a wide range of skin products for both men and woman. Please ask for details next time you visit and one of our therapists will talk you through what is currently available. If it is a gift you are after, remember all our Clarins products come with complimentary gift wrap saving you time and money!
