It’s true to say that the summer of 2022 was a season that we’ve not experienced in some years. Us Brits are used to the odd day of warmth and sunshine during the so-called summer months, so when we’re treated to weeks of blue skies and sizzling temperatures, it’s more than tempting to get outside and enjoy it.
Not to burst your bubble however, we need to remember that UV rays can cause damage to the skin’s cells (both inside and out), leading to a number of skin concerns. This is why the experts here at Ambra Clinic in North Finchley never stop shouting about the need to apply SPF to the skin – everyday.
Without adequate protection, UV rays penetrate down to the middle layers of the skin (the dermis). The most likely effects of this are: cellular damage, increased melanin production, increased rate of collagen breakdown, increased risk of skin inflammation and increased risk of cancer cells forming. The consequences of this can take some time (maybe even years) to develop, causing commonly experienced concerns including: dehydrated skin, age spots, thread veins, uneven skin texture, pigmentation, premature ageing (lines, wrinkles and thinning skin) and skin cancer.
With the hot summer almost over, and a cooler autumn starting to move in, now is the time to consider the recent effects of heat and exposure to UV rays and think about refreshing and replenishing your complexion.
At Ambra Clinic we have an amazing range of treatments designed to re energise the skin and restore its healthy condition. Often the best way to slow down the effects of sun exposure and keep its consequences at bay is to nourish, hydrate and repair any damaged cells. All our treatments are recommended following a thorough skin consultation, and may include a combination of in-clinic and at-home solutions, such as:
• A bespoke facial
• Sunekos skin boosters
• Obagi Medical skin treatments / skincare
• Chemical skin peels
• Crystal microdermabrasion facial
These treatments are aimed at enhancing the quality and condition of the skin. Their processes focus on increasing naturally occurring substances such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, as well as removing old skin cells for a healthier, more radiant looking complexion. Ageing has already been mentioned in this blog, and will progress slowly over time, often accelerated by exposure to the sun. Although there’s little we can do to stop it altogether, Ambra Clinic can perform a treatment(s) to pause its effects and help maintain a more vibrant and youthful look. Treatments include:
• Dermal fillers
• Facial wrinkle reduction
• Ellanse fillers
• Radiofrequency skin tightening and
Acting now not only helps to revitalise your skin, improve its appearance and reverse the effects of the sun, it also helps to prepare your skin for the change in season so you can better care for its needs.
So, be kind to your skin this September, show it how much you care and book an appointment at Ambra Clinic. We’re confident you’ll be amazed with the results, and you’ll be rewarded with skin that looks and feels incredible.Back to blog
