What does every woman over 40 want for their skin? A naturally healthy looking glow. It’s one of the most popular words used by women to describe their ideal skin. Although our desire may be for healthy glowing skin, as we age, the effect becomes harder to achieve with topical skincare alone.
When we think of glowing skin, it’s skin that is healthy, hydrated and with minimal lines and wrinkles, the skin we had in our youth, but how to achieve this in our 40s, 50s and beyond?
Dr Sophie Shotter has the answer with her Ultimate Glow treatment. Using Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is naturally occurring and in abundance in our skin in our youth. Sadly, Hyaluronic Acid starts to decline in our twenties, and drops dramatically as we enter menopause. It can hold 1000 times its weight in water, making it behave like a sponge within the skin, retaining moisture and keeping skin hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid is also an antioxidant, that helps protect cells against free radical damage, and improves cell communication. Hyaluronic Acid also stimulates collagen production, making it the perfect solution for glowing skin.
Dr Sophie Shotter has taken this incredible ingredient and designed an aesthetic treatment that fuses different Hyaluronic Acid products, to deliver impressive results.
The facial treatment uses the application of Profhilo, known in the media as the injectable moisturiser, which is a non-cross linked hyaluronic acid product that spreads under the skin to deeply hydrate it, without ‘filling’ it. Profhilo improves the health of the skin, giving it the glow, we all desire, and the appearance of younger, healthier skin.
Dr Sophie then adds Juvéderm Volite to the treatment programme for added moisture. Using very tiny needles, this hyaluronic acid based product is clinically proven to provide dermal hydration for up to nine months. This skin booster plumps and hydrates skin better than a topical skincare alone.
The Ultimate Glow treatment can be adapted to suit each individual concern, such as lines, wrinkles and sagging, it allows each person to decide how they would like to support their own ‘Ultimate Glow’.
Offering you a choice of treatment plans, Dr Sophie can tailor Ultimate Glow to help you achieve the desired effect for your skin.
