Revising Skin Conditions

Acne and Congestion

A long-term skin disease caused by the clogging of hair follicles with a combination of dead skin cells and oil. Typical features of acne include excessive oil production (known as sebum), improper cell turnover, possible microbial infection and inflammation. While genetics has been demonstrated to have a strong role in acne formation, there are other physiologic factors (i.e. hormones), psychological problems (i.e. stress) and lifestyle choices (diet, environmental conditions, and smoking) that may also impact the degree of its severity. Severe cases can lead to excessive inflammation resulting in unsightly scar formation.

Solution:
Centella Acne & Anti- Clogging Treatment will stimulate the lymphatic system to increase blood flow, oxygen and unblock within. This treatment contains anti- bacterial and anti- ageing inflammation properties which will help to reduce redness, bacteria and infection. At Centella we take into account the individual condition and tailor a personalised programme.

Acne/Scarring

Acne scars are the result of extreme inflammation within the dermal layer of the skin, due to abnormal healing post-inflammatory response. Collagen, which is a critical skin component, is replaced at the site of injury during wound healing. An abnormal response can result in either too much collagen or its lack at the site of the acne lesion. Additionally, this increased inflammatory response may also result in hyperpigmentation, thus causing a darken spot to form following a resolved acne lesion.

Solution:
Centella used morning and night will help reduce and firm of scarring also can be used in conjunction with skin needling or micro dermabrasion.

Scarring

Scarring results as the body’s natural response to wound repair and healing. Scar tissue is composed of collagen, however the composition is different to that of normal skin, thus resulting in skin remodelling. The amount of collagen determines the type of scarring that occurs; for example, hypertrophic and atrophic scars have too much collagen.

Solution:
Our Scarring Treatment can be used in conjunction with Skin Needling and Micro Dermabrasion

Pigmentation

Everyone has a natural pigmentation to their skin, based on the protein melanin that is produced within the epidermal layer of the skin. Inflammatory responses, such as exposure to ultraviolet radiation (i.e. sun exposure, artificial tanning beds) or acne, can result in stimulation of melanin production. Additionally, some while melanin functions to protect the skin against future UV exposure, it can also occur following severe injury, resulted in hyper pigmented spots.

Solution:
Our Centella Stem Cell Treatment aids in evening out skin tones, reducing dark spots and circles, increases cell turnover- leaving you with a more even complexion.

Sun Damage and Pigmentation

Exposure to solar exposure (natural or artificial) results in UV rays that penetrate the epidermal and dermal portions of the skin. These rays can be absorbed by the genetic material (DNA) in our cells or can result in free radical formation, both of which can lead to potential mutation and increases the risk for developing cancer. Additionally, UV exposure can also stimulate the production of melanin via melanocytes. Through its transfer to keratinocytes (the main cell type of the epidermis), melanin functions to increase our pigmentation to shield against future UV damage.

Wrinkles and Ageing

Photo ageing refers to the changes in skin as a result of chronic exposure to UVA and UVB. UVA is highly associated with reducing the thickness of the dermal layer of the skin (loss of collagen), thus losing its ability to support the epidermal layer, resulting in wrinkles and broken blood vessels. In addition, UVA results in free radical formation, which can attack both proteins and lipids of the skin, as well as cause damage to cells’ DNA. UVB, known to be the more mutagenic form of UV, can be directly absorbed by DNA, thus causing damage to cells. Additionally, UVB can result in stimulation of melanin, resulting in hyper pigmented spots.

Solution:
Our Double Mask Anti- Ageing Treatment focuses on rebuilding our connective tissue, which helps to firm and tighten. Our Centella formula aids in stimulating collagen, elastin and increases hydration levels.

Sensitive and Reactive Skin

While skin is known to be a strong organ, it can easily become irritated or reactive, depending on what it may be exposed to. For instance, sensitive skin is known as a skin condition where exposure to certain cosmetics, toiletries and detergents, can result in itching and irritation. If not taken care of, this may result in a type of skin inflammation known as contact dermatitis. Additionally, skin health relies heavily on maintaining a balance of between water retention and water loss, and any imbalance can result in aggravated skin.

Solution:
It’s all about soothing and strengthening your skin. Out Anti- Ageing Inflammatory Treatment aids in reducing redness, broken capillaries, whilst strengthening so it becomes lest reactive.

Cellulite

Cellulite is formed as a result of fat cells pushing against the dermal portion of the skin, and can mainly be found in the pelvic region of the body as skin dimpling. Causes of cellulite include genetics, hormones, lifestyle choices (diet and exercise), and poor circulation.

Solution:
Our Cellulite Treatment focuses on heating up any fat cells, flushing toxins whilst manually breaking down trapped cellulite.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins are veins which have become enlarged and entwined, thus causing improper blood circulation. Blood flows backwards causing the varicose veins to become further enlarged. Varicose veins are more common in women, with genetics, menopause, pregnancy and ageing considered to be major factors related to their onset. Chronic problems with varicose veins may results in swelling, skin thickening, and ulcerations.

Solution:
To help strengthen varicose veins and to encourage blood flow and oxygen to the area we need.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are a form of scarring in the skin, caused by the tearing of the dermal layer, which often results in an off-colour scar tissue. These are often the result of rapid stretching of the skin associated with weight gain or loss, due to improper collagen and elastin formation.

Solution:
We believe it’s never too late to help reduce stretchmarks
