Is Winter a Good Time for Neck Rejuvenation?

The NEWS is out! Even though we still have to move through winter, fashion houses are saying that plunging necklines for spring and summer are destined to make the stage again—but with their décolleté-revealing cuts, they may stir up a few concerns about exposing this area.

Most women are religious about using sunscreen on their face, but don’t apply anything to the neck ,and oft-neglected area, which, along with the chest, is among the first to show the early signs of aging. Long-term damage can result in sun spots, crepiness, wrinkles, and a loss of youthful definition, while post-winter dullness and patchiness leaves skin looking uneven. Luminosity Skins Advanced Laser Tighten and Tone Systems can help.

Skin tightening laser remodelling heats the skin to stimulate more protein production. This procedure targets the protein in the dermis whilst preserving the epidermis and as a result there is minimal downtime associated with this (and easily hidden with winter scarfs and Jumpers). As dermal protein heals and remodels under an undamaged outer layer, the skin tightens and smooths, thus improving its appearance. Skin tightening treatments are designed to provide improvement in skin colour, tone, wrinkles and laxity, with minimal discomfort.

Rejuvenation is supported by effective skin care. At Luminosity Skin we highly recommend Vitamin A and Stem to support your skin structure in order to get the maximum effects of your Laser treatment.

Reduce Sun Damage.... #skinbykarenstrachan™

Best ways to repair sun-damage?

  • Sunscreen - Start using a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen every day to allow the skin to start repairing itself..it prevents pigmentation, burst capillaries and uneven skin tone, it will prevent large pores and saggy skin by preventing the breakdown of collagen from sun exposure. .Our favourite at Luminosity is Actinica SPF 50+. It has a lovely matt finish which sits under foundation really well.
  • Frac 3 Laser Therapy - safe for all skin types and is clinically proven to stimulate collagen, promote healing and hydration and gives the skin an incredible lustre without downtime.
  • Eye Serum -  I believe we should start with an eye cream as early as 20. The skin around the eyes is much finer and has less oil glands so we need a specific eye treatment to keep this skin supple and moist so as to prevent fine lines and crepiness, Lumi's am pm eye serum is the ideal product for this.
  • Exfoliate the skin - How often should you exfoliate your skin? It really depends on your skin type and specific conditions. I would say usually two to three times per week with an Dr Natasha Cook Clarifier and also recommend using the exfoliating Lumi cleanser twice daily as well. This cleanser has an AHA such as lactic acid to chemically exfoliate the skin and promote hydration. 
  • Anti-oxidant serum - Lumi CoQ10 - layered under your sunscreen during the day. Use a Retinol / Vitamin A serum at night to stimulate collagen production and refine the texture of your skin. 

 Skin Care for Anti Aging

I have PIGMENTATION what should I do?

If you are a regular YouTuber you will have no doubt surfed the many different beauty treatments to see what actually happens within the beauty industry.  Medical Grade Skin peels are just one. Photos of people with their skin peeling off then a later photo with a brand new smooth complexion are everywhere, in addition to testimonials of the amazing results. Although not as dramatic or as cataclysmic as Samantha from Sex in the City, this proven treatment has been successful with many people with Hypopigmentation and Melasma as well as sun spots and unwanted freckles.

Medical Grade Skin Peels are a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a ‘new’ layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes superficial ‘age’ spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. Medical Grade Skin Peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of acne scars.”  This treatment is also good for all skin tones, including darker tones.

The treatment usually takes about fifteen to thirty minutes.  What happens next is where all the shocking “skin-melting” photos are coming from.  A few days after the treatment your skin will tighten, darken and begin to crack and peel for the next four to seven days.  Then a brand new layer of skin emerges.  The new layer of skin will be very vulnerable to sunburn so patients have to diligently protect their skin with good sunscreen .

While home peel kits are sold, they are usually lower in strength.  It is still highly recommended to have this procedure performed by a clinician, especially with high strength Medical Grade Skin Peels.
