Why Do We Have Dull Skin?

Dull Skin is a consequence of natural intrinsic ageing, cumulative exposure to UV light, smoking and other environmental toxins, genetics, and poor skin care. Over time, open pores, fine lines, coarse texture, dehydrated skin all contribute to a dull, non-vibrant look. Dull Skin can detract from your face even when your shape and features are perfect.

How Is Dull Skin Treated?

Prevention is key. Dr. Jodie believes healthy living in the form of a balanced diet and regular exercise is key to good health and good skin. Avoid smoking and other environmental toxins as much as you can. Most importantly, protect your skin from damage from harsh UV rays with sun avoidance and a broad spectrum, high SPF sunscreen. Dr. Jodie personally eats a plant-based diet.

In addition to lifestyle changes, Dr. Jodie strongly advocates for the use of active at-home Skin Care and regular in-clinic Skin Peels with LED Therapy to improve your skin quality and achieve the skin glow you have always wanted. And let's not forget the role of Skin Boosters, Biostimulators, and the newer Skin Bio Remodelling Injections in hydrating, smoothing and firming your skin. For additional skin tightening and radiance, you may wish to consider the Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling device, especially if you are on the more mature side of life. And for your best results, Dr. Jodie has recently expanded her skin rejuvenation repertoire to include Laser Genesis, the Excel V+ Laser and Medi Pulse Pro IPL therapy, which focus on improving your skin tone and texture. What a fantastic way to maintain your skin health!

What Are Skin Boosters, Biostimulators, And Skin Bio Remodelling Agents?

Although good Skin Care can be delivered in the form of topical creams, lotions, and serums, even better results may come from injectable Skin Boosters. Skin Boosters are an injectable form of Skin Care made from the same sugar as Dermal Fillers. This gel-like substance is delivered into the dermis of the skin with a fine needle or a micro-cannula (blunt-ended instrument to reduce bruising). Prior to administering, Dr. Jodie will numb your treatment area to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Skin Boosters work by stimulating your skin’s own collagen network to refine pores and fine lines, hydrate and smooth your skin, to give your face an undeniable glow. Unlike Dermal Fillers, they improve skin texture without adding volume or contours. They can be used in conjunction with Dermal Fillers and Anti Wrinkle injections for an even more refreshed natural look. The best news? This treatment is suitable to all skin types and all ages, but they are particularly amenable to those with youth on their side with good skin elasticity.

Those with more mature skin may wish to consider Biostimulators or Skin Bio Remodelling Injections for even more collagen stimulation to assist with skin firming and brightening. Biostimulators are available as an injectable solution (liquid) or mono threads. The newer Skin Bio Remodelling agent is available as an injectable gel. Dr. Jodie will guide you as to your best choice based on your medical history, lifestyle and capacity for recovery time, and preference. Biostimulators and Skin Bio Remodelling Injections are increasing in popularity in recent years as they are considered more potent stimulators of your collagen and elastin, than perhaps Skin Boosters, allowing for more significant tissue remodelling and skin rejuvenation. In addition, they are unlikely to result in unnatural looking results, as they rely on your body's own skin renewal processes, unlike dermal fillers, which may create an augmented look if administered by untrained hands.

How Does The Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling Device Improve Skin Radiance?

Although the Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling device is primarily for skin texture and tightening, anything that has a smoothing effect on skin will contribute to skin glow. The Scarlet S works by combining microneedling and radio frequency energy to heat small columns of tissue to promote skin renewal and collagen and elastin production. Its microneedling component, alone, can help fade unwanted skin pigmentation, leading to a more even skin tone and improved radiance. Fortunately, treatment with radio frequency energy is suitable for all skin types, so no-one misses out.

How Does Laser Genesis Brighten Your Skin?

Laser Genesis is your ultimate no-downtime skin glow treatment. It gently heats the upper layers of the skin leading to cell turnover and new collagen and elastin. This rejuvenating process smooths the skin by minimising fine lines, acne scarring and open pores. It also targets the fine broken capillaries of your face, diminishing facial redness and facial flushing. At the Dr. Jodie clinic, traditional Laser Genesis is complemented by cutting-edge Green Laser Genesis, which slowly lightens skin pigmentation over time, leading to a brighter, fresher complexion.

What Other Devices At The Dr. Jodie Clinic Can Improve Skin Dullness?

It is important to understand that sometimes dull skin is the consequence of too many broken blood vessels or too much pigmentation. At the Dr. Jodie clinic, we have the Excel V+ Laser, which is fast becoming the gold standard treatment for vascular conditions, such as red spots and generalised facial redness. We also have the Medi Pulse Pro XL IPL, which is our preferred treatment for brown spots and generalised skin pigmentation. Interestingly there is overlap and the Excel V+ Laser can also treat pigmentation and the Medi Pulse Pro XL IPL can also treat vascular issues. But both rejuvenate the skin with collagen and elastin production. Your Dr. Jodie clinician will determine if you are a good candidate for treatment, as both may require recovery time and they are not suitable for darker skin types.

How Can Skin Peels And Skin Care Help Dull Skin?

Dr. Jodie also offers a professional Skin Peel range from Aspect Dr, as well as cosmeceutical and medical grade Skin Care products with active ingredients for clearer, smoother, brighter skin. All skin services are carried out by Dr. Jodie's trained therapist, hand-selected for her attention to detail and understanding of the treatments provided.

Remember, not all Skin Care products are equal! Dr. Jodie and her therapist can create a Skin Care program with just the right ingredients tailored exactly to your needs and designed to maintain your in-clinic results. Your active Skin Care should, at a minimum, include:

  • A cleanser to remove environmental impurities without irritating or stripping your skin of it's natural moisturising factors
  • A moisturiser to nourish and repair your skin barrier and prevent dehydration of your skin
  • Vitamin A (retinol or the more potent retinoic acid) to reduce fine lines and signs of ageing by supporting collagen production
  • Vitamin B (niacinamide or B3, and B5) to minimise oil production, fade pigmentation and soothe skin irritation,
  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to fade pigmentation and reduce signs of ageing as a powerful antioxidant,
  • AHA/BHA to gently exfoliate the surface of your skin and address pigmentation,
  • Broad spectrum, SPF 50+ to protect your skin from damage from UVA and UVB exposure, andVarious peptides and other agents, like resveratrol, for their additional anti-oxidant effect
