Smooth operator. Enzyme peel

What is the appeal of a treatment that removes the top layer of skin?

These cosmetic treatments quickly give visibly improvement to the skin’s appearance. They are categorised by their depth.

The deeper the peel the more dramatic the result but alongside that comes a higher risk of complication. increased discomfort and greater recovery time.

Medik8 has a range of peels from superficial 1-3 to medium depth.

The most superficial is an Enzyme Peel which achieves pleasing smoothness and clarity without trauma or down time. Even if undertaking a series of peels it is advisable to start with an effective procedure that is without risk. No two skins react the same and the it never ceases to amaze me just how individual a response can be.
The enzyme peel is suitable for even sensitive skin although these might experience more intense tingling. The skin after treatment will be soft and smooth and receptive to hydrating serums but should not flake although the most sensitive may experience some flushing.
Expect to see a skin radiance with the skin tone appearing more even.

The preparation is a blend of 8 active active ingredients which have been selected specifically for their individual potency and action.
Among the key ingredients listed is
Papain which is a naturally derived enzyme that ‘digests’ the surface skin cells that contribute to dull complexions and uneven skin texture.
Pomegranate which contains ellagic acid that helps suppress UV induced pigmentation. Personally I am a huge fan of pomegranate as a sun protector.
Blueberries rich in antioxidants to neutralize free radical damage
Kiwi which is not only rich in anti-oxidants but also vitamins C,E,,A.

DOESN’T THAT SOUND APPETISING!

‘Beta’spot relief

Why does a spot always appear when you least want it? Of course there is never a good time for a breakout but they have an uncanny way of happening just before an important ‘meeting’.

Medik8 Beta Gel to the rescue. With a spot you want to be able to target it immediately without drawing attention to it. This product is discreet but infused with actives. Azelaic acid targets the bacteria and inflammation whilst Salicylic acid is a gentle B.H.A. which works to unblock pores, clear dead skin and prevent congestion that could lead to further outbreaks.
The product is a handy handbag size and forms an invisible film on the skin that will sit underneath a concealer. It is soothing and calming and contains no Benzoyl peroxide. This targeted spot defence will aid blocked pores, black and white heads. RRP £31 15ML.

Beauty sleep

Almost everyone has some big celebration, party or event in the spring and summer months.
Already brides are coming into the salon wanting to know how they can achieve the perfect bridal complexion.
We are not all brides but any gathering where we are meeting with old friends, ‘x’s’ or new family and connections is a motivation to get our skin care right so we look our best.
The optimal time to rejuvenate your skin is at night and what you need is a non irritating,fast absorbing Vitamin A serum to not only improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but loss of firmness. The skin feels incredibly smooth in the morning. Clinical trials have shown Vitamin A works on the various signs of ageing to give the skin a clarity and improved texture as well as helping acne prone and pigmented skin. Not all Vitamin A products are comfortable to use and have often been abandoned because of irritation.
MEDIK8 has a range of Retinol products that are non irritating and used in accordance with professional guidance give great results. Several things make Medik 8 Retinols so acceptable by the skin. First the company has a ‘fresh batch’ policy that guarantees quality and the products are encapsulated to release slowly over time so avoiding the irritation that potent Retinol formulations tend to cause.For the eye area where the skin is particularly sensitive there is a professional strength under night serum that works incredibly well on crows feet and dark circles. Medik8 Retinol Eyr TR (time release)
Medik8 Retinol line come in varying strengths and I advise starting with 3TR. Stronger is Retinol 6TR and contains Vitamin E. I don’t advise starting with this strength but rather progressing to it over time. Skin well accustomed to Retinol will tolerate Retinol 10TR balm.
With all products introduce them slowly. Typically use serums initially only twice a week before increasing use to 3 times a week. If any irritation is experienced reduce use again.
Your skin may go to bed tired but you want it to wake fresh, smooth and restored. Medik8 Night cream is replete with unique anti-oxidants such as Passion Flower and Valerian.With such ingredients how could you not sleep well and wake radiant!Works well on your hands and night time is the time to treat them when they remain away from water and sunlight.

How permanent is a cosmetic tattoo

How permanent are permanent cosmetics?
The degree of permanency does vary from client to client. Each body and every lifestyle is different.
Sun exposure, unique body chemistry, medical conditions alongside facial care routines all effect colour fading.
If someone is using sun beds regularly the implanted pigment will be affected and the individual who exfoliates regularly will need to protect the tattooed area.

Colour can be refreshed and this is advised. The cost for this is generally only 50% of the list price.

Slim chance.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

This statement probably explains why so many of us are frustrated at best and discontent at worst about our body. The naked reality, which nobody sees more than ourselves, can be a stark reminder of time passing, neglected fitness regimes, diet and skin care.
It is though never too late to tighten things up. Loosing body mass can take time but reshaping, tightening and firming the skin can be achieved within a few weeks. Actual body exposure at this time of year may be more limited but during the party season we all tend to show a little extra!
I recommend 3 clean, easy and effective body services to you. Body exfoliation with glycolic which is especially good for back, chest and shoulders. Body sculpting with radio frequency/micro -current muscle toning. Skin smoothing and tightening with Skeyndor electrotherapy.
Bottom line is be firm…with yourself! Prepare now and be ahead for the next season…spring.
Skeyndor body treatments. Treatments are individually £60 but a series of 6 can be purchased for £280

Permanent Cosmetic for 2015?

Permanent make up is known by several titles, semi-permanent cosmetic, micro-pigmentation but it is basically a cosmetic tattoo. It is a safe procedure when carried out by a trained technician, with equipment designed to prevent cross contamination, safely formulated pigments and proper aftercare is observed.
Those that seek this service might be sports or professional people as a convenience, those with poor eyesight or dexterity or when through maturity or accident features have altered and alopecia sufferers. The most usual procedures are on the brows, eyeliner and lip.
Lip and eyeliner procedures do not require the level of artistry that designing eyebrows does. Traditionally a powder brow was popular but now there is a trend to a hair stroke brow. The process of permanent cosmetics has changed dramatically in the past two decades with new techniques still emerging.
Is it painful? The degree of discomfort is client specific but I have had many a client drop off to sleep! The location of the procedure and technician skill are relevant.
How permanent is permanent? The level of permanency can vary with lifestyle, medical conditions, facial care but a good procedure places the particles of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Natural fading will occur but colour refreshing is advised at a reduced cost.
Not everyone is a suitable candidate so consultation is essential. This presents an opportunity to discuss medical background, design and colour. All I want for 2015 is a matching pair of eyebrows! Daydreams prices are very competitive but having been fixed for a number of years are due to increase in the spring.

Certified Practioner in Permanent Cosmetic

I have been qualified in micro -pigmentation since 1997 and have taken many advance courses since but last month I studied to qualify as a CPCP. This International certificate insists on Blood Bourne Virus education with current certification. Stage 1 was to update that training. Revising for the full exam was tough because it covered a vast amount of material and there were topics that I had not focused on before either as a skin care therapist or tattooist. I left the exam quite uncertain about the outcome because the pass mark was 81%. Thankfully my mark was 93% but the best aspect of the exercise was I did gain new knowledge. The thing is if you don’t know something you think you know nothing!
