One of the unfortunate side effects of ageing is that skin can lose it’s smoothness, elasticity and dewy appearance. In short, it can start to appear dull.
At Palm Clinic in Auckland NZ, our Cosmetic Medicine team is well practiced at providing dull skin treatments tailored specifically to you.
As the skin ages there are a number of things that happen both from chronological ageing and from external factors such as sun exposure, smoking and environmental pollutants.
At Palm Clinic, Auckland NZ, we are often asked how to rejuvenate dull skin. Our cosmetic medicine doctors and nurses can offer a range of safe, effective treatments and technology to address the various issues associated with dull skin.
ResurFX™ Laser treatments stimulate collagen production to significantly reduce acne scars, sun spots, brown pigment and thicken the dermis. This improves pore size and skin texture to achieve a more radiant skin.
The thickened stratum corneum can be reduced with medical grade skincare products such as topical vitamin C (which promotes collagen growth) and vitamin A (which speeds up turnover of skin cells). These remove the dead skin cells and promote a more hydrated, healthy skin.
No matter your skin type, an SPF sunscreen will protect the skin from further UV damage, age spots and free radical damage.
Our clients have often spent a lot of money on dull skin products from the pharmacy or department store, however in order to optimise results, the higher levels of active ingredients within medical grade skincare make these the best products to brighten dull skin.
A medi-facial combined with chemical peel (such as glycolic acid) breaks down the outer layer of dead cells and helps build a more functional and healthy skin. These are both prescribed by our skin therapist and tailored to your skin type.
Microneedling using Dermapen is a great dull skin remedy. Dermapen damages the skin in a controlled way to promote collagen growth and a smoother skin surface that better reflects the light.
Loss of underlying support structures such as collagen, muscle and fat can be replaced with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which replace lost volume and provide better support for the skin giving it a healthier glow.
Wrinkles and lines can be directly treated with injectables such as Botox® and dermal fillers to smooth the skin’s surface.
Before and after full skin treatment.
