Dull skin is often described as skin that has lost its brightness and looks grey in appearance. As we age, this can become a common skin complaint.
When we are young, our skin sheds its cells every 30 days. However, as we get older this extends up to every 60 days. The natural decrease in cell turnover can cause a build-up of dead skin cells and a dull looking complexion.
Apart from the natural ageing process, other factors such as exposure to the sun and certain lifestyle choices can lead to tired, dull skin. In order to keep the skin bright and healthy, it is important to protect the skin from damage whilst also encouraging cell turnover.
At MP Clinic we offer a number of specialised treatments and an expert product range to help clear dull skin.
We offer a number of skin peels that are designed to brighten and refresh dull skin. The treatment involves applying a non toxic chemical to the skin to encourage cell turnover and the exfoliation process. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant. Many of the lighter skin peels are relatively pain free, with the deeper ones feeling like an episode of sunburn.
This exfoliating treatment is ideal for treating dull skin. It is performed using a mechanical device which simultaneously buffs away unwanted imperfections using microcrystals and vacuums the top layer of skin. The superficial depth of skin removal helps promote new skin cells and collagen production; resulting in plumper, brighter skin
