The rise of skin health in the world of aesthetics

Discover the potential of skin health treatments with Francesca Coleman

In recent years, the realm of medical aesthetics has undergone a massive transformation, thanks to the discovery of many new science-backed skin treatments. While injectables have still been at the forefront of the aesthetics world, skin practitioners are supporting aesthetic doctors with preventative work that can impact overall skin health and appearance. The combination of techniques which evolve yearly—using injectables alongside more frequent skin treatments—are becoming a favoured option with patients in most skin health clinics.

The role of skin-tightening radiofrequency devices
Radiofrequency devices play a key role in skin rejuvenation. These non-invasive temperature-controlled radiofrequency treatments can work effectively to reduce fat, smooth wrinkles and tighten the skin. These can be personalised specifically for the face or body, to treat each area of the skin with minimal downtime.

The rise of skin boosters such as polynucleotides and exosomes
Recently, there have been some ground-breaking discoveries and applications of skin boosters, such as polynucleotides and exosomes. These tiny vesicles secreted by a variety of cells have drawn considerable interest for their potential in skin rejuvenation. They are also able to speed up wound healing and hair restoration treatments such as PRP. Combining these ingredients within skin treatments, such as microneedling and mesotherapy, play a pivotal role in many rejuvenating skin treatments.

Dual-modality treatments
Skin treatments using a combination of modality’s are proving popular when it comes to delaying signs of ageing and boosting collagen stimulation. Combining lights, such as ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers and intense pulse light, helps to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the skin. These technologies enable physicians to achieve excellent clinical results over a sequence of treatments, while keeping clients comfortable with minimal downtime.

The future of aesthetics seems to be changing. Professionals are now considering more restorative, rejuvenating and preventative treatments, using new techniques to slow down the ageing process. New skin science is on the rise… watch this space.
