Christmas will no doubt be a little different this year. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t want to look and feel your best. It isn’t shallow or superficial to care about your appearance and beauty treatments can help to improve your self-esteem. What we see in the mirror most definitely affects our mood, and vice-versa. Did you know, for example, that negative emotions trigger the release of certain hormones? In fact, chemicals can to lead to thinning hair and even eczema flare-ups.
Beauty treatments at Lighthouse
A bright smile and clear, glowing skin are two things that can totally transform your look and mood. That’s why Lighthouse Dental Practice is diversifying to embrace other aspects of health, beauty and wellbeing, in addition to offering routine, complex and cosmetic dentistry services. Over the years, we have become so much more than somewhere to have a routine dental check-up. As a modern dental practice, we have expanded our portfolio to include popular aesthetic options, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and cosmetic crowns. So we’re delighted to reveal that we are now taking this area of the business one step further. We have joined forces with Anna Charters at Skin Revival to offer a range of popular non-surgical anti-ageing beauty treatments. These will include chemical peels, dermaplaning and microneedling. These beauty treatments will be available as stand-alone options. However, we will also be combining them with certain cosmetic dental treatments. In fact, these will take the form of bespoke packages tailored to suit individual patients’ needs.
Anna set up Skin Revival earlier this year She’s a qualified dental hygienist with a special interest in advanced skin treatments. As someone who suffered previously with acne breakouts, she knows first-hand how common skin problems can affect self-confidence and self-esteem.
Safety first is Anna’s mantra. Did you know that much of the beauty treatments industry is unregulated? That’s why it’s always worthwhile doing some research and making sure you choose a fully qualified practitioner. There are clear rules and regulations about who can prescribe and administer anti-ageing injections, for example. In terms of the beauty treatments Anna is offering, she has extensive knowledge of the head and neck structure. In addition, she is fully up-to-date with all necessary cross-infection protocols.
Where your beauty treatments take place is just as important as who performs them. Lighthouse Dental Practice is a safe, clean, sterile environment. Anna will create a suitably pampering ambience with scented candles and relaxing music. But you can rest assured hygiene is paramount and her clinic is completely COVID-secure.
Which beauty treatments are on offer?
To begin with, the three non-surgical beauty treatments on offer will be dermaplaning, chemical peels and micro-needling. We will add more in the foreseeable future.
Sometimes known as face shaving, this is a treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to safely remove dead skin and any unsightly downy “peach fuzz”. In fact, the official term is fine vellus hairs. It’s a fast, effective way to achieve softer, smother skin, and create an instant radiant glow. Dermaplaning is the ideal beauty treatment to counter dullness and dryness, and improve texture and tone. It banishes build-up, boosts cell turnover, and allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply and perform better. It can even reduce acne scarring and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This is another great anti-ageing beauty treatment to consider if your skin is dull, dry or damaged. Peels use a chemical solution and there are different strengths to choose from. This will then exfoliate the top layers of dead/damaged skin, stimulate the repair process, and rejuvenate the complexion. They can also tackle issues such hyperpigmentation, milia (milk spots), scarring and sun damage. And this beauty treatment isn’t just for the face. Anna can use a chemical peel on the neck, too. Winter is a great time to experiment with this type of exfoliation treatment, as sun exposure isn’t recommended straight afterwards.
This is another multi-tasking beauty treatment designed to regenerate and rejuvenate your complexion. It helps the skin to repair and renew itself naturally, by stimulating stores of collagen and elastin. These are vital ingredients for healthy, youthful-looking skin. So, don’t be put off by the name! The needles used are tiny and super fine. In fact, micro-needling is an excellent scar treatment, You can choose this to tackle stretch marks, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles. This type of non-surgical resurfacing procedure is a great way to achieve smoother, younger looking skin. However, you can also achieve a visibly enhanced radiance, texture and tone.
Initially, Skin Revival beauty treatments will be available at Lighthouse Dental Practice one Saturday a month. To book, please call 01473 257 379.
