Winter might mean woolly hats and trips up the Snowy Mountains, but it can also equal dull, dehydrated skin.
Constantly moving between bitter winds and powerful indoor heaters can compromise the skin’s natural barrier function, leaving a layer of dead cells to accumulate on the skin’s surface and inhibiting much needed moisture from penetrating to the deeper layers.
Good hydration is vital to skin health as it not only keeps the complexion feeling comfortable, but also aids in the prevention of wrinkles. While a quality at home skincare routine is an essential part of maintaining a luminous appearance, in-clinic treatments are a powerful way to bring unhappy complexions back to life.
One of our favourite skin hydration solutions at the Cosmetic Medicine Centre is the Beauty Booster. This innovative treatment uses a series of micro-injections to deliver a unique patented formula of effective natural components (amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins) to tired complexions.
This combination nourishes and treats the skin, stimulating the natural production of more collagen and elastin and essentially assisting in restructuring the skin.
The Beauty Booster can be customised to target individual skin concerns such as dehydration, tired-looking skin and the visible signs of ageing. It can be used to achieve tighter, firmer skin on the face, lower eyelid, forehead, neck, décolletage and hands.
Having been designed to replenish dry and ageing skin, the Beauty Booster plumps the contours of your face ‘naturally’, while achieving a smoother complexion with noticeable radiance and luminosity.
Improvements can be seen after a single treatment, but for more lasting results, a series of two to four treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended with a single maintenance treatment performed at six months.
The Cosmetic Medicine Centre stocks a range of hydrating skincare products. Among our best sellers are the Ultra MD Ultimate B2 Hydrating Serum, Bio Logica Serum and Ultraceuticals Ultra Replenishing Mask.
The Ultra MD Ultimate B2 Hydrating Serum uses a combination of B vitamins to draw moisture to the skin and retain it once there. It also contains fan favourite hyaluronic acid for the restoration of moisture balance.
The Bio Logica Serum moisturises and firms the skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Ultra Replenishing Mask by Ultraceuticals helps to relieve dry, distressed and dehydrated skin. It can be applied post-treatment to help the skin recover and is suitable for normal to dry skin types.
