Why hide my scars when I can talk about them honestly? My Dermaroller Therapy™ experience so far…

The one thing I was always been conscious of when growing up was the pitted scars on the side of my face. Now, aged 28, I have learnt to accept them, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to improve them in any way I can. In the past two years, since discovering No.6, have I really started to cater for and nurture my skin. After first examination, back in 2014, I had learnt that the pitted scars, also known as “atrophic scars”, are deep scars commonly caused by chickenpox. Pitted scars make skin regeneration slower and often leads to a permanent scarring, which I have.  However, I also learnt that I could improve the appearance of my scars by enjoying skincare maintenance through treating myself to regular peels and Ominlux light treatments and by establishing a home skincare routine. After having several honest conversations with No.6 Clinic’s Aesthetic Nurses, Samantha and Haley, I had decided that the next step to my skin journey would be to have Dermaroller Therapy™. Their honest, professional, advice made me aware that some of the scars may not fade, or improve, however some would and overall my skin would be healthier. Dermaroller Therapy™

It’s Time to Take Notice of Your Neck

No matter how young you may look from the chin up, if you don’t lavish some care on your neck your age will be an easy read. Neck skin is a prime age-revealer; an article recently published in the Telegraph stated that “50% of the visible signs of ageing happen in lower part of our face and below the neck”. This is because the skin can be thinner, due to a lower level of fatty tissue, and more sensitive, therefore it is the first to suffer from premature elastin and collagen degradation. The neck area is also just as prone to changes in pigment, sun damage, texture – and, yes, to wrinkles. With this in mind, here are some ways that you can improve the appearance of your neck, whatever your age. Apply to Face…and Neck Start to make a conscious effort in continuing your skincare regime below your jaw line and right down to your chest area. The neck has fewer sebaceous glands meaning that it dehydrates easily and needs nourishing ingredients to help restore this moisture. Aesthetician Beth recommends Environ’s AVST Body Oil, £42.45, a lightweight formula which contains Vitamin A, to normalise and repair, Vitamin C and

The clinic also offers a variety of treatments so I can individualise my clients treatment program. What is your favourite treatment to have? A combination of Botox and dermal fillers.

Options for facial pigmentation and slight scarring

“I have pigmentation in the form of dark spots and even some slight scarring on my face – is there anything I can do to eliminate this problem or is make-up my only option?” Our Jane Iredale make-up can offer a quick fix solution because the pure mineral pigment make-up gives exceptional coverage as it contains no fillers such as talcs or bismuth. However, for a long term solution we would recommend a course of 3 Intense Pulsed Light treatments, a month apart, supported by Dermaquest Mango Brite Peels and a structured home care regime. The specially designed IPL light is absorbed only by the cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment (melanin) and destroys the pigment granules. It does not destroy the surrounding tissues or remove the normal skin colour. IPL also works for scarring, releasing precisely controlled short pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin,  resulting in a more uniform complexion. The skin becomes firmer and appears more radiant.  At No.6 Clinic we offer 20% off a course of 3 treatments and a full free consultation and review, see our website for more details. Regular use of sunscreen is essential if new areas are
