Are skin clinic treatments necessary if i am using good skincare?

There are benefits of having in-clinic treatments as well as using good home care. It is like eating healthy food at home and going to the gym: going to the gym allows you to intensely and specifically target certain concerns, whether it be losing weight or building muscle. Similarly, having in clinic treatments allows us to target particular concerns. With the use of chemical peels, lasers, and other modalities we can target:



As we age our skin structures such as collagen and elastin become weaker alongside the skin cell’s ability to function diminishing. This can be caused by many factors, being both ageing and environment related. Age is influenced by years of age, hormones, and genetics. Whilst environmental ageing is influenced by: UV exposure, pollution, smoking, diet, trauma, etc.
