Prescriptive Skincare

What is this and how can it help?

The vast majority of high street skin creams including the expensive designer brands only contain a small proportion of active ingredients as they can be bought by people of any age and skin conditions. They smell and feel nice when they are applied to the skin but do very little to improve the quality of the skin.

Prescriptive skin care is sold in clinics only and not found in high street shops. They contain high concentration of active ingredients such as hydroxyl acids, hyaluronic acid, vitamins A C E, retinol, glycolic acid etc. These ingredients are formulated in a way so they can be go through the skin and reach the target area where they exert their effects. Hence the pH of the formulation is lower allowing the ingredients to seep through the skin layers and actually improve the skin quality. They stimulate skin turnover allowing damaged cells to fall off and new undamaged cells to take their place.

What are the benefits of prescriptive skincare?

They aim to PREVENT the damage caused by ageing, sun and the environment by use of antioxidants that neutralise the free radicals before they can damage the skin cells.

They then CORRECT the existing skin damage by repairing the cells with the use of hydroxyacids such as hyaluronic and glycolic acids and ACE vitamins.

They finally PROTECT the skin against any further damage from the sun and environmental pollutants by blocking the radiation.

This RESULTS in skin having a youthful appearance with reduced lines and pigmentation, improved elasticity, strength and an even tone.

What are the different brands of prescriptive skincare?

There are several well-known brands. These include Skinceuticals, Obagi, NeoStrata and Mesoestetic. We offer Skinceuticals as the products are not harsh and too aggressive. They are well tolerated and produce visible results.

How long does it take to see results from prescriptive skincare?

Skin turnover cycle is between 4-6 weeks in adults so you need to allow 2 cycles to notice a good difference. However, results should be visible after 6 weeks.

"I am amazed at the results"

I got fillers done on my nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines, I don’t really like needles but was pleasantly surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, there was a little nip and the procedure was over and done with, in no time at all. Dr Qureshi was very professional, he talked me through the procedure as he was doing it, putting me at ease. I saw a slight difference straight away but as the day went on it got better. I am amazed at the results, I will definitely be going back for more and I will be recommending Dr Qureshi to all my friends.
