Dealing With Dull Skin

Dull Skin Teal Feathers 5

As we edge closer to autumn and winter, many of us find ourselves dealing with dull skin. When your skin seems to have lost its radiance, it can seem almost impossible to restore it. There are a number of reasons why the skin loses its lustre but there are several ways to combat this phenomenon at Light Touch Clinic in Weybridge, Surrey.

Why Do I Have Dull Skin?

There are many reasons why you might be dealing with dull skin. In many cases, it is due to a lack of moisture. Dull and dry skin often go hand in hand – if your skin is naturally dry, you may find it incredibly difficult to achieve a ‘lit from within glow’. However, there could be several other reasons behind your skin woes:

  • A buildup of dead skin cells can make the skin seem dull. Our cells regenerate on a regular basis but when they’re not sufficiently cleared away from the dermis, they stop the skin from reflecting light, making it look increasingly lacklustre. As we age, the skin’s ability to renew itself declines, which can lead to dull skin.
  • Sun damage can also leave the skin looking rough and dry. When the dermis is exposed to UVA and UVB rays without adequate protection on a regular basis it can be detrimental to skin health. UV damage also slows down the rate of cell renewal and damages the collagen fibres that keep skin looking plump, hydrated and young.
  • Not getting enough sleep can also impact your skin. While we sleep, our bodies carry out any necessary repair work and as the skin is our largest organ, it’s incredibly important to ensure that we give our bodies ample time to rest. If you fail to get at least 7 hours of sleep for a few days, you’re likely to notice that you’re left with dull skin.

How Light Touch Clinic Can Help

Located in the heart of Surrey, the Light Touch Clinic team have been helping patients deal with their skin concerns for a number of years. Our founder and medical director, Dr Natalie Geary, is a true aesthetic pioneer and it’s thanks to her that we have such a broad range of innovative treatment options to offer our patients.

One of our favourite options in the fight against dull skin is Profhilo® – a ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid-based solution that increases the body’s production of new collagen and elastin fibres. Profhilo® isn’t quite a dermal filler, nor is it a skin booster – it’s something even better! As well as promoting radiance, it smooths fine lines and wrinkles, increases hydration and improves overall skin tone and texture. In short, there’s very little Profhilo® can’t do.

We also offer a range of facials and chemical peels that boost skin quality. Chemical peels are ideal if you want spectacular results and minimal downtime. Most of the peels we offer from SkinCeuticals contain glycolic acid, which is perfect for resurfacing skin texture. We also carry the ever-popular Hydrafacial. This treatment transforms dull skin in 6 steps: lymphatic drainage, deep cleansing, a chemical peel, extraction, hydration, and LED light therapy. It can be tailored to your individual skin type and it’s even suitable for those with sensitive skin. We also have a range of boosters available with this treatment if you really want to maximise your results! If you’re looking for a pick-me-up before an event or you simply want to enhance the results of your regular skincare routine, this is the perfect facial for you.

Speaking of LED light therapy, we even offer Dermalux LED treatments! This particular device helps to heal damaged cells using different forms of light. As well as being an option for dull skin, it can also tackle fine lines, aid lymphatic drainage and improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. At Light Touch Clinic, we don’t just offer procedures to help with dull skin, there are also topical skincare options to consider.

Alongside our extensive treatment range, we also stock several medical-grade skincare brands that will ensure you can maintain your treatment results for even longer. In particular, we love several of the advanced products by ZO® Skin Health, many of which contain prescription-strength ingredients. If you’ve struggled to find over-the-counter solutions that deliver results, we offer personalised recommendations for advanced products to keep dull skin at bay.
