I ♥ Saturdays!

Introducing the I ♥ Saturdays combination package at Clinetix! This combination treatment is perfect to recover your skin from the abuse of the week before. The I ♥ Saturdays combination treatment will rejuvenate your skin and reduce puffiness whilst giving you a much desired collagen boost.

The I ♥ Saturdays package is a four step treatment involving:

A Skin Boosting Collagen Drink (Skinade)Skinade Clinetix

Skinade is a multi-award winning anti-ageing collagen drink containing a variety of active ingredients. These active ingredients boost your body’s natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid improving your skin from the inside out. Skinade will further augment your natural production of collagen to boost your energy levels, brighten and clear your skin. Over-time continued consumption of Skinade will begin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and cellulite.


Radio Frequency Collagen Boosting Treatment

Directly after the skin boosting collagen drink you will have a radio frequency collagen boosting treatment. The radio frequency collagen boosting treatment will instantly lift and tighten loose facial skin. The treatment involves intense pulses of infra-red light combined with radio frequency pulses to target the deeper layers of the skin to gently heat and increase collagen synthesis. The gentle heating causes an immediate lift to plump skin and lift jowls.

Enzyme Lymphatic Draining

Following on from the radio frequency collagen boosting treatment is an enzyme lymphatic drainage treatment. This detoxifying treatment is a deep relaxing treatment that helps drain the lymph towards the nearest lymph-node to drain you of toxins. This in turn increases blood flow and promotes oxygen to your blood cells. The enzyme lymphatic drainage treatment will help clear your skin, reduce puffiness, rejuvenate the skin and promote a fresh glow.

Dermalux LED Tri-Wave Phototherapydermalux pink

The I ♥ Saturdays treatment will then be finished off with a Dermalux LED Tri-Wave Phototherapy Treatment. The Dermalux is a revolutionary treatment which will gently rejuvenate your skin and treat a range of skin conditions.

The Dermalux uses three different lights in conjunction with one another each with their own purpose to penetrate the lower layers of the skin. The red light is excellent to combat the signs of anti-ageing as it boosts collagen and elastin and promotes hydration in the skin. The blue light is excellent for acne prone skin as it kills any bacteria in the skin whilst treating inflammation and redness. The third light the Dermalux uses is near infra-red. This is not visible to the eye but near infra-red promotes wound healing and overall health of the skin.

 The Dermalux will treat a range of skin concerns such as sun damage, aged skin, eczema, wrinkles and much more. Most importantly the Dermalux helps with recovery and improves outcomes of previous treatments. As a result Dermalux Phototherapy will enhance the effects of the collagen drink, radio frequency collagen boosting treatment and the enzyme lymphatic drainage treatment.

Overall, the I ♥ Saturdays package will leave your skin instantly brighter and tighter with reduced puffiness and a lift, perfect before a night out! The long term result of new collagen production will improve skin tone and texture so the benefits will be increased with repeat treatments!

What Treatment is Right for Me? (Part II)

In a previous blog I began to talk about the different type of aesthetic treatments we offer at Clinetix and how they work. If you’d like to read about Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers and Superficial Chemical Peels click here to go back to the last article. In this one I’m going to take about a few more treatments that we offer at our clinics in Glasgow. The aesthetic treatment we start to discuss are Thread Lifts.

Thread Lift Treatments

Aesthetic Treatment - Thread LiftThread lifts are becoming increasingly popular as the development of better threads and better techniques are providing impressive and long lasting results. These thread lifts are designed to lift and reposition the upper layers of the face. Thread lifts are ideal for people who are starting to develop skin laxity with nasolabial folds, flattened cheeks and early jowl formation. Threads can be used in the lower part of the face and the upper neck to help define a jawline.

The threads themselves have either small barbs or cones that anchor onto the tissues and allow the thread to be gently tensioned, resulting in a lift of the skin. The process is performed using local anaesthetic injections to numb small areas of the face. We introduce threads under the skin using needles or cannula in the desired area and are tension the threads to lift before being cut. After they are cut the thread then becomes completely buried under the skin and is invisible. The results generally last for 18 months or so and can be prolonged if smaller treatments, involving less threads are repeated every year or so.

If you would like to read some more I wrote a blog about thread lifts a few weeks ago here

Laser Resurfacing

Aesthetic Treatment - CO2RE Laser ResurfacingFinally for today I’m going to cover Laser resurfacing. This is the Gold Standard treatment for photo aged skin that addresses texture, lines and wrinkles and laxity. We use a technique called Fractional Ablative Resurfacing with a Carbon Dioxide Laser in Clinetix. After numbing the skin with anaesthetic injections we use the laser to make a controlled injury to the epidermis and dermis, this results in the skin regenerating with a healthier dermis and epidermis. This is described as a downtime procedure that requires a little bit of aftercare. The skin on your face will take about a week or so to return to normal but the results are usually well worth the effort!

People are often concerned that this treatment may be painful but using good anaesthetic techniques most patients find the procedure remarkable tolerable. We combine Laser resurfacing with phototherapy treatment as this reduces the recovery time and improves the overall result. Post operative care is especially important following Laser Resurfacing. Patients are provided with information on how to clean and care for the skin until it heals. At Clinetix we arrange for review appointments every 2 days so that our team can clean and assess your skin. We also provide further phototherapy treatments to accelerate the recovery.  You can find some FAQ’s about Laser Resurfacing on this page

So that’s Laser resurfacing and Thread Lift aesthetic treatments briefly covered. As stand alone treatments these as well as everything else we offer will provide real and long lasting results.
