Smoking has a damaging effect on the skin and the lips are often the area most affected, because of the repetitive action of drawing the smoke. The good news is there are treatments available to reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines.
At this time of year skin can become rough, tight and itchy. This “winter skin” can be irritating and make your complexion look dull and lifeless.
Fortunately, we have the answer! Our Profhilo treatment is an easy, effective way to intensely hydrate your skin throughout the winter months.
What causes winter skin?
Over the winter, our skin has to cope with a lot. We go from cold winter winds into centrally heated homes and offices – both of which have low humidity. This causes water to evaporate from the surface of your skin, drying it out.
As well as the dull appearance of dehydrated skin, it can also be prone to conditions such as rashes. Plus, if your skin is constantly dehydrated, this can accelerate the signs of ageing.
How does Profhilo help?
Profhilo is an anti-ageing treatment which is also fabulously hydrating for your skin.
The treatment involves injecting very pure, stabilised hyaluronic acid into the areas where your skin is suffering dehydration. For example, this could be your face, neck, décolletage or hands.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance which occurs naturally in your body. It acts a bit like a sponge, soaking up water and keeping it locked into your skin so it doesn’t evaporate from the surface.
This ability to help your skin retain water counteracts the drying effects of wintertime, to keep your skin healthy and glowing throughout the year.
