Kate Kerr London’s Advanced Dermapen Anti-Ageing Facial is an intensive treatment using cutting edge techniques that are unique to Kate Kerr London. This exclusive, multi-faceted treatment is specifically formulated to improve the appearance of skin ageing caused by genetic and environmental factors.
Using the award winning Dermapen micro-needling device this one of a kind, painless treatment creates thousands of tiny micro-channels in the skin to aid the deeper penetration of active ingredients.
This enhanced diffusion of epidermal growth factors, antioxidants and other active ingredients goes to work directly on the targeted layers deep within the skin. A superficial skin peel and advanced cosmeceutical products further enhance this process to stimulate collagen growth, boost hydration levels, combat free radical damage and encourage skin renewal. This avant-garde facial both prevents and corrects the appearance of skin ageing for a fresh, glowing complexion.
Skin ageing is a degenerative process caused by intrinsic (chronological) and extrinsic (environmental) ageing. These factors contribute to the visible signs of skin ageing. These include:
Intrinsic ageing is a natural process, determined by internal factors and is programmed by our genes. Unfortunately, we have very little control over this. Extrinsic ageing, also known as photo-ageing, is caused by external factors that we are regularly exposed to and can be prevented or minimised. External elements such as sunlight, pollution, nutritional intake, smoking, stress and lack of sleep are among the most common factors. The single biggest culprit is the sun!
Skin ageing causes the surface layers of the skin, known as the epidermis, to thin and the number of melanocytes, the pigment producing cells, to decrease. In addition, in sun exposed areas the remaining melanocytes increase in size. This leads to the skin appearing thinner and more pale, with large pigmented areas known as age spots, lentigos or liver spots. The production of oil slows down causing dryness and the blood vessels become more fragile, increasing the incidence of bruising and other related conditions. Loss of fat under the skin becomes evident in areas such as the cheeks, temples, chin, nose and eyes. This is the basis for a more ‘skeletal’ appearance with a loosened skin and sunken eyes. Collagen and elastin are the fibres that give our skin its structure and the breakdown of these leads to lines, wrinkles and a loss of elasticity resulting in skin sagging.
The sun’s harmful rays are the main culprit behind many of these skin changes and although these effects can not be completely undone, with the correct skin care and advanced clinical treatments, they can be significantly reduced. The skin remembers every hour of sun it’s been exposed to, and although the effects don’t show whilst we are young, it’s extremely important to protect your skin throughout your whole life.
This bespoke anti-ageing treatment begins with a thorough skin consultation and skin analysis.
Emphasis is placed on a treatment and homecare programme as well as dietary recommendations to help you reach your anti-ageing goals and help slow down the ageing process. Your treatment is specifically designed for your own individual ageing symptoms and concerns.
Taking your concerns into consideration a precise collection of the latest advanced machines, skin peels, specialist massage techniques and cosmeceutical products will be combined to deliver dramatic results. Using the award winning Dermapen micro-needling device this one of a kind, painless treatment creates thousands of tiny micro-channels in the skin to aid the deeper penetration of active ingredients. The Anti-Ageing Facial is individual to you and may differ with each subsequent appointment depending on your concerns and your skin’s health.
Long term results and skin maintenance are achieved by continued regular advanced clinical treatments and accompanied by a preventative, corrective and protective homecare regime.
NB The Dermapen’s micro-needles are set at a length of 0.3mm for the Anti-Ageing Facial, compared to the 1.5mm used when performing Dermapen Micro-Needling. The difference in needle length provides a completely different method of action in the skin. The shorter length creates micro-channels in the skin, for a ‘funnel’ like effect, allowing for enhanced penetration of active ingredients. The longer length micro-needles, 1.5mm, cause a micro-wound in the deeper layers of the skin. This causes a cascade of the wound healing response, which leads to the stimulation of collagen growth and therefore a reduction in lines and wrinkles, scarring and an improvement in skin texture.
