Crewe Hair and Skin clinic aims to help you with skin concerns including pigmentation issues, wrinkles, fine lines and signs of ageing.
Melasma and hyperpigmentation are seen as dark patches on the face. It is seen more commonly in people with darker skin.The most important thing to do now is always sun screen with an SPF of more than 30 as the pigment will increase with more sun exposure. The sunscreen must be a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical sunscreen. Please see the Shop section of the website to shop online.
A range of options are available at the clinic to address pigmentation concerns. These include home treatment programmes. The brands used include Obagi Medical, ZO Skin medical, Cyspera. Both hydroquinone and non hydroquinone options are available.
Depending on your requires a chemical peel may be offered. Salicylic acid peel is best if skin is oily, (a glycolic acid peel is preferred if the skin is dry).
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and can continue for a long time if untreated.
The clinic treatment aims to improve the physical appearance and scarring if treated early enough. PRP treatment is available at the clinic for acne scarring.
Whilst it is primarily a skin disorder of the young, often clearing up spontaneously, it can affect up to 12% of women and 3% of men over 25.
The clinic uses the ZO medical skin programme to tackle acne.
A consultation is undertaken beforehand and a tailored programme is provided.
In addition to these treatments which are used at home, periodic treatments in the form of chemical peels are also available
The clinic has approaches to help with the physical appearance of rosacea. The Zo Skin health system is primarily used as both a home treatment programme and in clinic treatments.The good news is that for clinic treatment (Zo Stimulator Peel) often the appearance in rosace is better immediately after the treatment!
