Give tired skin a boost

Published on March 2, 2015 by

It may seem unfair, but if you have a naturally dry skin you’re more likely to suffer from ‘tired’ skin.  The natural fine layers lose moisture, which makes the skin dryer and more susceptible to lines forming. 

Without volume the skin tends to sag and even more lines appear – along with jowls and bags under the eyes.  The flakiness – even minute flakes, not visible without a magnifying mirror – mean that your skin won’t reflect the light and it just has that flat, dead look.

Some of this happens naturally as you age, but the drier your skin the earlier it can start to have an effect.

If you’re suffering from these problems you may be wondering how to start looking good again.  You’ve probably considered a number of options including Botox, dermal fillers, facial scrubs, skin resurfacing and maybe even a face lift.  All of these treatments will have an effect, but everyone is different and you’ll almost certainly need some expert advice.

Many of the patients who visit our Riverbanks Wellness in Bedfordshire or come to us in London for consultation have tried the new Skin Boosters with excellent results.  In fact, many have recommended the treatment to their friends so we get patients from the areas all around London and the Home Counties, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Skin boosters do exactly what the name suggests.  It’s how they do it that’s important.

The treatment consists of a series of tiny droplets injected under the skin with a really fine needle, so, with a mild local anaesthetic ingredient, you aren’t uncomfortable during the treatment. 

These droplets work on the skin at deep level to rehydrate it and attract more moisture from nearby tissues.  Over the course of treatment your natural collagen is revitalised – this is what gives your skin the plump, youthful look – and the volume is restored.

As a result of this lines are smoothed out as the volume improves and the rehydrated skin loses the dry flakes and so reflecting light again and making you look radiant.

A course of skin boosters usually starts with three treatments spread over a period of about three months, followed by another treatment after about eight months.  This means results last for a considerable time and your skin retains its hydration, elasticity and volume ensuring you continue to look youthful, fresh and bright.

If your skin is looking tired why don’t you give Skin Boosters a try?  Your first step is to discuss what you would like to achieve in results with an expert.  As Riverbanks Medical Director I believe that every patient is different and will recommend one or more treatments to help you to get the results you want.

As your first step please give our friendly team a call on 01582 762877 and open the conversation.
