Winter is one of the most important times of the year to look after your skin. The cold weather, the sun and the extreme changes in temperature due to the heating can negatively impact your skin, dehydrating it, making it appear dull and flat. Winter is also a time of festivities and family and friends reunions so looking your best is on the list.
In this blog, post you will be able to find some treatments to help you and your skin look your best this winter.
At The Private Clinic, we provide customised treatments to help our patients achieve their desired results based on their skincare needs and their skin concerns.
Brightening the face following winter blues.
To brighten up your skin during the winter months we have some treatments available that help bring the glow back into your skin as well as improve the quality of your skin.
Medical Microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment which consists of vacuuming with a jet of micro crystals the top layer of the skin. This treatment is suitable for all types of skin including sensitive skin. The result is a glowing, fresher and more youthful looking skin as it helps reduce fine lines, ageing spots, acne scars and is ideal for sun-damaged skin.
Chemical Peels are intensive exfoliating treatments using chemical products in order to resurface the skin and remove all the skin dead cells, resulting in much more even, smoother and brighter skin.
This treatment is ideal to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and acne scars.
Obagi Blue Peel
The Obagi Blue Peel is used to brighten and tighten the skin targeting fine lines and wrinkles and can also help clear acne. This type of chemical peel involves minimal downtime and is performed in a series of treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
The LED phototherapy treatment is a heat-free procedure consisting of a LED mask which produces coloured wavelengths (each colour targets different concerns) causing the stimulation of the skin cells to repair the skin.
The LED treatment can treat different skin concerns from lines and wrinkles to problematic acne skin. To target each issue the lights on the LED mask change:
- Red light therapy treatment is ideal for patients whose main concerns are fine lines and wrinkles and pigmentation wanting to improve the quality of their skin. This treatment enables the production of elastin and collagen which help improve the skin laxity, texture and increase circulation reducing inflammation and smooth the skin.
- Blue light therapy this procedure is recommended to patients who suffer from problematic or acne prone skin as the blue light has anti-bacterial properties and also help to stabilise oil production.
- Infrared Light therapy this treatment is able to penetrate deeper into the skin so it’s ideal to treat scars or sun-damaged skin.
Antiaging treatments and fillers to refresh and rejuvenate the face.
Dermal Fillers are non-invasive treatments which consist of injecting hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body able to add volume to different areas of the face.
Dermal fillers do not require any downtime and can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, contour the face and add volume and shape the lips.
Other concerns that can be treated with dermal fillers to improve one’s appearance are:

- Lips to improve the volume and shape.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) also known as Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy is a treatment to rejuvenate the skin utilising your own blood healing properties.
These treatments consist of extracting your blood (as you would for a blood test) to then be placed in a centrifuge for the platelets and plasma to separate and be injected into the areas to be treated. The PRP injections encourage the body’s production of collagen to restore and rejuvenate the skin.
