Medical skincare. What's the difference?

You might love your trusty face cream, but do you really know how much of an impact it's having on your skin? The difference with medical skincare is that the change is obvious.

Medical skincare can only be prescribed by an accredited doctor or nurse, as it contains ingredients that can penetrate or change the function of the skin. So, you'll see better, faster results than you would with high street skincare.

At Dr Nestor's, we use ZO Skin Health UK, a range of highly effective medical skincare which gives incredible results. Brightening treatments that really brighten and enhance the skin, spot-fighting products that really help reduce active acne and blemishes, and anti-ageing products that make a difference to lines and wrinkles.

We believe that medical skincare offers a much bigger impact to the skin and when appropriately prescribed by a trained professional, you can really see a huge change in the condition, tone and texture of your skin.

Fillers are a term you'll be familiar with, but if you're not sure how they work, read on...

Dermal fillers are a group of injectable medical products, designed to add volume. There are many different types of fillers available, but at Dr Nestor's we only use hyaluronic acid fillers, which are the most popular and the safest kind. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally within the skin so it works well within fillers to create a naturally volumised look.

Fillers can be injected into areas of the skin to replace lost volume and to revitalise the skin, giving a lifted, plumper and more youthful effect. The most popular area for filler application is in the lips, but it can also be used to heighten and plump up the cheeks, smooth out bumps in the nose, sharpen the profile and jawline, enlarge the chin to create balance, and pad out any under-eye hollows. As with any other injectable medicine, you should only ever opt for fillers when they are being administered by a licenced, trained and registered doctor, and they should only ever be administered in a hygienic and safe medical environment.

Fillers can be reversed, and over time they break down within the body - generally filler results last for around 18 months.
