Skin Conditioning for the Winter Season

Insights from Jessica

Skin Conditioning aims to improve the overall quality of skin cellular health, increase hydration and faster skin metabolism without barrier disruption. Hyaluronic acid and vitamin preparations are perfect solutions for improving skin cellular metabolism, therefore preventing ‘inflamaging’ and metabolic damage accumulation.

Cosy socks, cosy jumpers, big coats, but what about our skin? The winter months are approaching extremely quickly leaving us minimal time to prepare, so what do we have to do?

Packing in the hydration is vital as the dry and cold winter air causes our skin to be more chapped, dry and even more so, dull and sensitive. Primarily, the winter air is all about humidity. When the temperature drops, our skin loses hydration by around 25%.

To further protect our skin in winter, we must first focus on products then treatments. For cleansers, gentle cleansers are ideal as not only do they have lower chemicals and alcohol in them, but it prevents the skin from drying out too. Next is our moisturisers. We often hear people comment on how much moisturiser they should be using or what type of moisturiser they should be using. Choosing richer and heavier moisturisers that are loaded with hyaluronic acid and ceramides are required to tackle the winter months. Not only should we moisturise our faces, but we must remember to moisturise our hands too.

Next, we have treatments, our favourite! At Aestha clinic, we have a wide range of treatments we offer to our clients including skin boosters, Profhilo, and medical-grade skin care products. However, nothing beats Filmed M-HA 10 and Filmed NCTF 135HA, our number one products used to treat dry and dull skin.

Filmed M-HA 10 is a visco-elastic solution that contains non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid, which provides instant hydration to the skin that is either tired looking or extremely dry. When HA 10 is injected, the natural hydration of the tissues within our faces is restored and the treated area becomes firmer, hydrated, glowing, and luminous.

Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight and involves restoring the natural levels of hydration and improving the suppleness of the skin. For many individuals that experience overly dry skin during winter months, the treatment can restore hydration levels, making the skin feel firmer and less saggy. The serum is made from non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid which opts for natural ingredients to stimulate skin regeneration without damaging it. With Filmed M-HA 10, it is injected nearer to the upper dermis and very superficially as a skin booster.

The best areas for this treatment are the crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, expression lines, necklines, and hands.

Best for:

  • Skin Conditioning
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Static Lines
  • Increasing Skin Laxity
  • Extraction lines
  • Skin Plumping and Rehydration

Filmed NCTF (New Cellular Treatment Factor) 135HA is a poly revitalising solution that provides our skin with the essential ingredients required to thrive.

Contains: Free HA : 12 vitamins + 24 amino acids + 6 co-enzymes + nucleic acids + 6 minerals + 6 others. Excellent for revitalisation and fibroblast stimulation for collagen and elastin production.

NCTF can be used in various ways to treat the skin, however, mesotherapy is the most common way as this allows the product to target all layers of the skin although it is injected superficially. Ideally, the product is aimed at targeting numerous concerns ranging from hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, dark under-eye circles, and overall hydration requirements.

Treatment areas: eyes, epidermal level skin, neck.

Best for:

  • Ageing Prevention
  • Photoaged and damaged skin
  • Fine lines around the eyes
  • Younger skin types ie before ’30s as a mesolift
  • Skin bio-revitalisation

Hello readers and dear clients!

Welcome to the Jessica series where I will be discussing various skin care concerns and treatments you can have at our clinic! As an aesthetic nurse, I love to talk about skincare and what we can do to prevent aging skin and maintain bright and healthy skin. As my client, you would have heard me discuss the importance of double cleansing and the importance of looking after your skin. My goal is to target skin care conditions and to ensure everybody is feeling confident in their skin.
