Among beauty enthusiasts, skin rejuvenation has been the hottest topic this year. We have expanded our skincare from at home routines to include skin rejuvenation treatments at certified clinics. And our skin has never looked better! If venturing into a skincare clinic is unchartered territory, you may be unsure what skin rejuvenation treatments are best for you.
But what do we mean by skin rejuvenation, and what treatments does it entail? Your skin already holds all the power within; at The Skin Nurse, we specialise in bringing your best skin to the surface. We restore, repair and rejuvenate the skin you’re in through our range of customised treatments & targeted homecare. Keep reading to find out precisely what skin rejuvenation entails and the best treatments to get you glowing.
What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is what we call skincare treatments that restore your skin from any damage. You might be thinking, “What damage? My skin is fine!” Our skin can take a beating from our day-to-day lives, where we live, and our lifestyle choices.
As we get older, we start to see our life catch up to us on our faces. Summers spent baking out in the sun, a lifetime’s worth of smiles on our laugh lines or too many night outs spent with a cigarette in hand. We can’t go back in time and un-do these decisions, but we can counteract their effects with specific skin rejuvenation treatments.
These treatments aim to improve the appearance of your skin and target specific concerns like texture, acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage and even cellulite. Before we run you through our favourite skin rejuvenation treatments, let us give you some steps you can start taking now to stop damaging your skin.
Tips on keeping skin rejuvenated:
Protect your skin from the sun; UV rays reduce skin elasticity & break down collagen, wear at least an SPF 30 sunscreen every day and wear a hat if out in the daytime sun.
Opt for fake tanning over sun tanning; the burning effects of UV tanning are prematurely ageing your skin and could lead to melanomas.
Stop smoking; the toxins from cigarettes damage your skin’s store of collagen and elastin.
Gently cleanse your face before bed; your skin cell turnover is highest at night, don’t let it absorb the day’s make-up, pollutants and sweat instead of nourishing products.
Moisturise; at least once a day, ideally a vitamin A moisturiser at night, to increase cell turnover, hydrate & repair while you sleep.
Exercise regularly and eat a healthy, balanced diet; the impacts of inactivity and poor diet is seen eventually through your skin.
Our favourite skin rejuvenation treatments in Perth
The HydraFacial is one of our most popular treatments! And it’s not just loved by our clients. Globally, there is a HydraFacial treatment done every 15 seconds. This 30-minute appointment basically sucks all the gunk out of your face through a patented spiral tip that exfoliates, clears blocked pores and administers nourishing serums. It’s a quick appointment requiring zero downtime. It achieves the same results as an advanced facial, and you will see results immediately!
It sounds scary, but we would choose a chemical peel instead of damaging our face with physical shell exfoliators any day. Chemical peels use mild & naturally-occurring solutions to exfoliate and gently peel off the top layers of skin. This top layer is often filled with congestion and appears dull. Removing the top layer reveals the glowing, younger skin underneath and is an effective skin treatment for anti-aging. Our Clinical Corrective Peel aims to combat acne, sun damage, rosacea, pigmentation, pores, melasma and poor skin texture.
This skin rejuvenation treatment involves manually exfoliating the skin’s surface through the Epi Blade tool. This device is a tiny blade that runs over the skin to gently remove peach fuzz, dead skin cells and scar tissue. It sounds painful, but clinical technicians use precise, feather-light strokes. Epi-blading improves the skin texture, reduces fine facial hair and enhances the effectiveness of skincare products. It is rejuvenating the skin from the outside in!
These are just some of our favourite skin rejuvenation treatments; we have a whole lot more on offer! You can browse our skin rejuvenation treatments at The Skin Nurse here. Our approach to skincare is not a one-size-fits-all, quick-fix approach. Our resident nurses and skin specialists will begin with a comprehensive consultation to understand your skin concerns and goals, determine which treatments will benefit you most and develop your at-home routine. This way, you are getting the most from your bespoke treatments and experiencing the best skin of your life. How does that sound?
