Conway House Dental Practice also offers a currently complementary Facial Aesthetic consultation to help make you look and feel your best. We provide medical skincare products, holistic advice to improve your appearance and wellbeing and non-surgical treatments.
The most important way to improve the appearance of your skin is a bespoke skincare regime. Our Dentist and Aesthetic Practitioner is an advocate of ZO Medical Grade Skincare introduced by Dr. Zein Obagi, the world-renowned skincare expert, who made huge changes in the field of Dermatology for the last 35 years.
Good skincare can truly compact the effects of ageing, genetics and environmental damage. Unhealthy skin looks rough, dry, deflated and has an uneven tone. Healthy skin is soft, firm, hydrated and has an even tone.
ZO has tailored programs for different skin conditions and maintenance programs to allow long-lasting results. There is an anti-ageing, anti-redness, anti-acne and anti-pigmentation program. There are 5 fundamental products:
1 - Wash
2 - Scrub
3 - Oil Control
4 - Daily Power Defence
5 - Sunscreen
Then, there are tailored products based on your skin concerns.
A skin peel uses a specific chemical solution to promote exfoliation and skin turnover, usually taking 30 minutes to complete.
A mild skin peel can remove the most superficial and damaged layers of skin to help with small blemishes and has anti-ageing effects for a fresh appearance.
A deeper peel may be more suitable in certain circumstances (deeper wrinkles or deep pigmentation for example) but there is more downtime (around 1 week).
You may feel some tingling or mild discomfort during the peel, which resolves soon after. It is important to avoid excessive sun exposure whilst your skin renews and settles after your peel.
There are home peels or stronger in-surgery peels available.
