Winter Skincare: Top 5 non-surgical anti-ageing treatments for supple luminous skin this winter

The season of fun, family and festivities is here, and homes are starting to sparkle with the Christmas spirit. Adding more merriment is the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, resulting in many events promising to be back on the agenda. So, if you’re planning to make this year memorable, why not put your best ‘face’ forward by gifting your skin with health, youth, and radiance?

The dry winter months are the perfect time to treat tired, dehydrated and dull skin with treatments that achieve exceptional results through state-of-the-art and non-invasive methods. 

Let’s unwrap our top 5 treatments for rejuvenated skin this season:

1. Healthy skin cells with chemical skin peels 

Are you looking for a quick but effective procedure that will leave you glowing from the inside out? If so, a chemical skin peel is an effective option as it immediately breathes life back into dull and lifeless skin. Dr. Raj at Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic recommends up to six treatments for best results. He adds that certain peels can even help with hyperpigmentation, fine lines, scarring and some types of acne. 

Chemical skin peels work by removing dead skin cells through exfoliation and promoting the growth of young and healthy cells. It promotes collagen regeneration by encouraging it to move to the skin's surface for a more youthful appearance.

2. Dewy skin with Morpheus8

This winter, you can combat dry and dull-looking skin using the revolutionary radio frequency (RF) treatment, Morpheus8 by InMode. It is a device that uses laser beams combined with microneedling to penetrate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer skin with reduced wrinkles.

Morpheus8 is known as a fractional skin treatment because it targets small fractions of the skin at a time to achieve remarkable results without needing to go under the knife. 

Dr. Raj explains that the treatment reaches deep layers of the skin to reverse the signs of ageing and it can be used on both the face and body.

He adds that Morpheus8 achieves undeniably younger-looking skin with a dewy, sleek appearance, resulting in head-turning luminous skin this festive season.

3. Youthful shine with Fractora

Fractora is another innovative and results-driven RF treatment by InMode and works similarly to Morpheus8. It is also a fractional skin treatment that reduces wrinkles and slows down the ageing process and can be used on any area of the face or body that needs renewal, most commonly the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines and neck. 

It is perfect for those who want to achieve a burst of youthful radiance with an even skin tone and texture.

Dr, Raj explains in more detail how RF treatments like Fractora work:

“These types of treatments use radio waves to heat your skin and encourage the production of collagen and elastin. Once this happens, it speeds up cell turnover, and the old, damaged skin is replaced with new skin that is naturally firmer, tighter and youthful looking. “

4. Dermal fillers to boost radiance 

With age, the skin loses elasticity, and this gives way to more fine lines and wrinkles. If you feel you need to take control of the ageing process, dermal fillers may be the ideal option. 

Dermal filler is an injection that ‘fills’ in lines and wrinkles and plumps areas that are sagging. It is commonly used under eye hollows, cheeks, temples, lips, and jawline.

At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Raj specialises in two reputable dermal filler brands - Juvederm and Radiesse. Both contain hyaluronic acid, which has a smoothing and filling effect when injected into the skin. It will keep you radiant way beyond the winter months, lasting up to 12 months. 

5. Whole body glow with Diolaze 

Removing unwanted hair using laser hair removal technology can give your whole body an instant radiant glow. Diolaze is an advanced option that safely and gently eliminates hair from any part of the body. The laser technology targets individual hair follicles by heating the root and preventing future hair growth. 

Diolaze even targets the most stubborn hair, and in just a few sessions, you can enjoy smooth and hair-free skin in targeted areas. 

Dr. Raj says patients can notice results from four to six sessions, but this will depend on your hair colour, hair type, skin tone and treatment area.
