September is national self-care awareness month, so we’ve been shining a light on our social channels on powerful, medical grade skin treatments that you can carry out at home. So, how does a “No Needles Time Machine” sound? In this month’s Blog, Dr Simon Ravichandran MBChB MRCS discusses non-invasive skin therapies. Read on to find out more…
Activate Skin Stem Cells
The Dr Levy Switzerland® skin range is the world’s first skincare range scientifically proven to boost dermal stem cells. Protected by an international medical patent, the skincare formulations are the result of Dr Phillip Levy’s pioneering research to help his patients reverse and delay the visible signs of ageing. He set himself the ambitious goal of triggering the skin’s own rejuvenation and repair process (usually triggered in response to laser or micro-needling) but without actually “wounding” the skin.
Based on the revolutionary discovery of the dermal stem cell reservoir – the skin’s natural wrinkle-fighting cells – these products activate skin stem cells (the same cells that produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid), to harness the power of your skin’s own anti-ageing system. They are clinically proven to regenerate and rejuvenate your skin, tackling all visible signs of ageing and are designed for use across four main treatment zones – on Face, Eyes, Neck & Décolletage and Hands.
Affectionately named the “No Needles Time Machine”, the #SkinTimeMachine is clinically proven to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin from the inside-out, targeting all the “tell-tale” signs of ageing.
This limited-edition kit tackles:
- Fine lines & wrinkles, including crow’s feet
- Dark circles and puffiness
- Loss of firmness & elasticity
- Dull complexion
- Imperfections and dilated pores
- Dry patches
- Dark spots & light pigmentation
Dr Simon Ravichandran MBChB MRCS comments:
“I like Dr Levy, personally as well as his product range. He is a man who is completely dedicated to the advancement of skin science. His product range is completely different to any other cosmeceutical on the market because they focus on stem cells. These products will stimulate your dermal stem cells to become brand new fibroblasts – which you can think of as a factory in your skin for making collagen, creating new, fresh, healthy, more youthful skin cells.”
Stimulate Collagen Production
Clinetix is also an official retailer for the ZO® Skin Health programme which works on the principles of skin health restoration, activating and up-regulating cellular activity, to increase the production of new collagen and the repair of damaged collagen (for firmness), elastin (for tightness) and glycosaminoglycans (for hydration).
Products in the ZO® range that will help stimulate the production of collagen include: Daily Power Defense, Growth Factor Serum, Wrinkle + Texture Repair and Firming Serum. These advanced anti-ageing products work synergistically with your skin’s natural regeneration of collagen and elastin.
However, there is no ‘one size’ fits all protocol for the ZO® Skin Health range so, if you are looking to boost collagen production and repair, the best first step would be to book in for a no obligation Skin Health Consultation, where you can be guided by our skin experts to the best products to fit in with your skincare needs and goals.
These professional, medical grade skincare solutions from Dr Levy Switzerland® and ZO® Skin Health will elevate your skincare to the next level and are particularly effective when used in a combination therapy approach, complementing and enhancing the results you will achieve from other in-clinic treatments.
Collagen Boosting Treatment
If you are looking for a collagen boosting treatment that will lift and tighten your skin, then look no further than the latest addition to the Clinetix portfolio – Ultherapy®. Again, this works like “No Needles Time Machine” for your skin as it is a completely non-invasive treatment which works naturally within your body to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. It is a clinically proven, safe and effective procedure (over 1.75 million treatments have been performed worldwide) and it is the only device of its type that has been cleared by the FDA (one of the world’s most stringent regulatory bodies for healthcare) and is CE-certified in Europe for non-surgical lifting of the skin on the upper and lower face, neck and décolletage.
Ultherapy® uses precise micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin, where collagen is produced, without disrupting your skin’s surface – so this means that the treatment requires little to no downtime. As it can generate great lifting and tightening results without downtime, it has become a popular treatment with celebrities such as, brand ambassador, Tess Daly. Doesn’t she look amazing at 52?
Giving a nod to Tess as co-host of Strictly and to mark the launch of Ultherapy® at Clinetix, we are offering the chance to win a prize package worth over £500 in our Strictly Come Dancing competition.
