If you follow my blog/twitter/instagram/have the joy of knowing me in person, then you will know I am completely and utterly OBSESSED with skincare - facials, products, supplements - you name it, if it promises to improve my skin, I want to know more about it. Thanks to my brand spanking new job and running this Blog I'm lucky enough to be able to try some fantastic treatments and products and to pick the brains of some ultimate skincare-gurus - the ones who really know their stuff! So you will be seeing numerous 'Skincare Series' posts from moi and I hope you like them and that they help you on your quest to improve your skin. First up is Dr Kersh at the KX Spa who I have had the utter delight of chatting to on numerous occasions and now have a skincare must-have-purcahse-list (Skinceuticals and Malvina Skincare FYI - will report back after payday purchases have been made) as well as an appointment scheduled for her signature three-step-facial. Here's what makes it so fan-tabulous...
Highly customizable and with incredibly powerful results, Dr Kersh’s signature three-step facial utiises a combination of hydration, mesotherapy and dermapen to attain subtle results that lead to a fresh, rejuvenated appearance.
As we age, skin loses vital properties that help it recover from daily stresses and maintain youthful appearance. In particular, skin loses hyaluronic acid, resulting in dry and lacklustre skin. Hyaluronic acid acts as the glue between cells and can hold up to one thousand times its own weight in moisture, making it the most powerful and hydrating water-soluble compound known. When injected, it gradually replenishes the moisture levels deep in the dermis. Fine superficial lines are diminished leaving a more plump, smooth and youthful look to the treated area.
Mesotherapy is a painless injection treatment that delivers a completely customisable cocktail of nourishing substances to the layers of the skin where cell repair and growth occurs. Vitamins, nutrients, amino-acids, minerals, hyaluronic acid, all essential components for healthy skin cells, can be delivered by mesotherapy. During your initial consultation Dr Kersh will be able to ascertain exactly what your skin needs and provide a prescriptive mesotherapy treatment designed specifically for your skin. This treatment helps improve dull, tired looking skin, dry, lifeless skin and superficial wrinkles.
3) Dermapen (aka micro-needling - I LOVE ME A BIT OF MICRO NEEDLING)
Minimally invasive, Dermapen can be performed on all skin colors and types, as well as on any area of the body. Faster, less painful (THANK GOD) more effective and with less downtime than the Dermaroller (brownie points for the dermapen!) the Dermapen creates numerous ultra-fine puncture wounds over the treatment area which stimulates the body’s natural healing process, prompting the natural release of the skin’s collagen and elastin for amazing anti-aging benefits. This type of skin needling collagen induction therapy can be used for skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation, acne scars and wound healing, improvement in wrinkles and fine line, pigmentation, stretch marks and minimising pore size
Dr Kersh’s signature three-step-facial can be further enhanced with a wide variety of advanced aesthetic treatments offered in her Aesthetic and Age Management Clininc including: dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, lightwave light therapy, anti-wrinkle treatments and handpicked premium skincare.
