Congestion is a term used to describe skin which has clogged pores. These are seen as blackheads and whiteheads making the bumps and dirty look associated with it. Blackheads are when the clogged substance is close to the surface with the air making them appear black and whiteheads are the deeper ones, harder to treat and not accessible to the air.
There are a number of factors which contribute to clogged pores, including build-up of excess oil & sebum, dead cells which are produced constantly as our cells turnover, environmental pollution, toxins being expelled by the body via your sweat and makeup & skin care products.
Microdermabrasion is an ideal option to unclog the skin due to the deeply exfoliating nature of the treatment. The gentle vacuum with a diamond coated head will exfoliate the top layer of dead skin removing potential clogging whilst providing refined and clarified skin.
Chemical Peels provide superficial to medium depth exfoliation using products that include glycolic acid and lactic acids (AHAs), salicylic acid (BHA), retinoids (vitamin A), resorcinol , mandelic acid, niacinamide (vitamin B3) and enzymes. The appropriate Chemical Peel can provide a simultaneous action to decongest, de-clog and disinfect skin affected by black heads and whiteheads whilst reducing inflammation and preventing future breakouts.
LLLT is a medical grade cold laser that reduces blackhead and whitehead formation and severity without heat or discomfort. Through a course of LLLT treatments the complexion will be clearer and smoother with diffused congestion and reduced breakouts.
The Carbon Laser Peel also known as the ‘China Doll Peel’ (named for its porcelain doll like finish to the skin) is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that utilises focused light beams to treat skin imperfections. The Carbon Laser Peel treatment works by applying a thin layer of carbon to the skin’s surface. Once evenly distributed, a focused light beam is emitted for a precise and targeted area. The carbon particles actively absorb the light before a vacuum suction gently removes them, along with damaged cells found in the upper layers of the skin.
The simultaneous generation of thermal energy stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen and the promotion of a healthy-looking complexion. Skin structure is visibly strengthened and even opened pores purified and cleared.
