Frequently asked skin care questions from our clients

Skin needling is not a “once-off” type of treatments and several sessions will be required for you to achieve optimum results. It is recommended that you undergo between 5 – 10 sessions with a few weeks in between each appointment. Though this may vary depending on your desired outcome as well as your skin’s response to the treatment.

Skin needling is not a particularly long process and can be what is often referred to as a “lunchtime” procedure. I.e. a treatment that can be done during your lunch break. Depending on the condition treated, as well as the amount of surface area that needs to be covered, it may take 5-60 minutes to complete the procedure.

Stretch marks can occur for a variety of reasons. The most common is rapid weight gain or rapid weight loss. Teenagers may also notice stretch marks after a growth spurt. “Cortisone” is a word that is often associated with stretch marks and this is because Stretch marks are sometimes a result of an increase of cortisone in your system. Cortisone is a hormone naturally produced by your adrenal glands. However, having too much of this hormone can make your skin lose its elasticity.

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments used for the face. Despite its popularity, many people who are considering anti-wrinkle treatments remain concerned about whether they are safe. This treatment has been used for decades and presents minimal risk. Issues usually arise in the event of an inexperienced practitioner who is administering the procedure. At Skinhance, we are fully qualified and have plenty experience in administering anti-wrinkle injections.

Yes. While dermal fillers are often used for anti-ageing purposes, such as smoothing out wrinkles, many people enhance and “plump up” their lips by means of dermal fillers. There are some instances where people believe that thin lips are contributing to an aged appearance and thus, they opt for dermal fillers to be administered to this area. Dermal fillers used in the lip area can deliver fantastic results which contributes to their popularity.

There is no set age to receive anti-wrinkle injections. Some people notice the signs of ageing earlier than others and thus it is difficult to determine the most common age that most patients decide to receive anti-wrinkle injections. If you have deep wrinkles caused by muscle contractions on your face and are concerned about the appearance of these wrinkles, you are old enough for anti-wrinkle injections regardless of your numerical age. If you feel that you will continue to be bothered by your wrinkles in the near future, anti-wrinkle injections will likely be a good option for you.

Anti-wrinkle injections are muscle relaxants that can treat wrinkles or fine lines. Dermal fillers add volume and can fill out wrinkles. Dermal fillers are made from natural ingredients.

Skin needling helps to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to treat scars and stretch marks. And, unlike other skin care treatments, it won’t negatively affect the top layer of skin. This means there’s little-to-no downtime, and fewer risks and side-effects.

Pyruvic acid works by rejuvenating the skin by resurfacing it with strengthening enzyme reactivation. It also reduces skin sensitivity and irritation, and can increase firmness in skin that looks dull and tired. The amino acids in a pyruvic acid formula also help to nourish the deep layers of the skin, and restore the skin’s natural barrier.

Laser genesis skin therapy is a treatment that is used to treat fine lines and redness, and may be recommended for patients looking to even out their skin tone. The treatment works by boosting the body’s production of collagen, which is a long-chain amino acid, and the human body’s most abundant protein. Collagen is the element that gives the skin its youthful appearance and elasticity.

Laser Genesis skin therapy can be used to treat a number of conditions commonly associated with ageing and sun damage. It may also be recommended for the treatment of excessive redness, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin surface, and scars. Because the treatment boosts the body’s production of collagen, it is an effective way of generally revitalising the skin.
