OVERVIEW

Skin health is the central component of our appearance, and it holds the key to looking the very best that you can for the age that you are.

As such, it has a profound influence on how we interact socially, as well as being a visual reflection of inner wellbeing. Whether we like it or not, our skin is a showcase of the effects of our lifestyles, and is often the first place that we spot the first signs of ageing.

Healthy skin is seen as the third facet of facial rejuvenation, along with Botox ® and dermal fillers. Skin is the canvas on which all other treatments are based; without healthy skin, we simply cannot look our best.

ETHOS OF SKIN HEALTH

In order to provide a truly holistic approach to facial rejuvenation, we must start with the skin. It’s a relatively new concept that skin health can have a direct effect on our quality of life, but of course it does. If you have ever had a day where your skin has made you feel that you must cover up, cancel an appointment or stay inside, your skin health has impacted on your daily life.

At the Medical Cosmetic Centre, Dr Lauren’s passion is to help each patient achieve and maintain healthy skin, as well as treating skin disease. Dr Lauren understands that the way we see ourselves and the way we feel about our appearance directly impacts our lives; her friendly and discreet consultations will leave you feeling reassured that help is at hand and together, we will find a solution that could change both your skin and your day-to-day life.

Dr Lauren provides an innovative, fully integrated doctor-led clinical skin service, which offers comprehensive solutions that link therapeutics and the maintenance of truly healthy skin.

ZO SKIN HEALTH – MEDICAL GRADE SKINCARE

Here at the Medical Cosmetic Centre, we treat skin with the same clinical approach as any of the injectable treatments also available. The health of our skin is incredibly important and we believe that healthy, beautiful skin is at the foundation of who we are. For outstanding results, Dr Lauren utilizes results-driven medical grade products in individually tailored prescribed programmes for skin restoration. These products are not available on the high street and are clinically-proven to deliver excellent results that last.

EFFECTIVE SKIN HEALTH, REDEFINED

Nearly 30 years ago, Dr Zein Obagi M.D. redefined the concept of skin health; going beyond merely treating skin diseases, and developing solutions that bridge the gap between therapeutics and skin health, creating products that deliver stunning results but are also pleasurable to use.

EVERY PATIENT. EVERY AGE. EVERY STAGE.

At the Medical Cosmetic Centre, we believe in results-orientated therapies, using our comprehensive product range to create regimes tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.

Products

At the Medical Cosmetic Centre, we encourage patients to build a thorough and effective skincare routine, comprising ZO Skin Health products that are proven to deliver results. We follow a simple step system, incorporating all of the requirements that skin needs to look and feel its best. We then adapt and tailor products, and therefore regimes, to suit each patient’s individual requirements.

GETTING SKIN READY

Cleanse: A thorough and regular cleanse will gently remove irritants and surface debris, for a clear and glowing complexion.

Exfoliate: Gently and effectively polish the skin, to instantly restore a smooth texture and a healthy glow.

Oil Control: Especially helpful for acne-prone skins, opt for products that regulate oil production and balance the skin’s natural pH.

Treatment: Maximise the skin’s barrier functionality, to achieve dramatic results.

Hydrate and Calm: Ideal for sensitive skins, we can recommend products that provide deep hydration, whilst also offering anti-irritation and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Sun Protection: A combination of specially-selected ingredients protect the skin against harmful UVA, UVB, infrared and high energy visible light, shielding the skin from external damage wherever possible.

Enhancers: Products formulated to enhance skin health regimens, we are certain that you’ll see increased effectiveness in your results, therefore giving you beautiful skin.

From here, depending on each patient’s individual concerns and clinical needs, a specific skin programme is developed by our expert team of skin health specialists. This includes the treatment and management of rosacea, melasma and pigmentation, static lines, acne, enlarged pores and many more skin complaints. Whatever your skin issues, we are confident that we can help you.

CHEMICAL PEELS

Our in-clinic treatments are designed to optimize and support the outcomes of skin restoration and rejuvenation programmes, to give you healthy, glowing and youthful skin.

At the Medical Cosmetic Centre, we are proud to offer three grades of chemical facial peel, to address a broad spectrum of skin concerns.

ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel: A revolutionary medical facial, which uses alpha/beta acid to stimulate cellular turnover, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin tone, texture and clarity. The Stimulator peel uses a unique combination of exfoliating ingredients to treat signs of ageing, rough texture and uneven tone, for the ultimate results-orientated treatment. We think of it as the perfect lunchtime peel – quick and effective, with no downtime required.

ZO Three-Step Stimulation Peel: This innovative in-clinic peel targets a multitude of skin concerns including melasma, acne, fine lines, rough texture, large pores and dullness. Following the in-clinic section of the peel, there’s also a top-up treatment to use at home, to produce longer-lasting results. The Three-Step peel is dual-action, providing skin renewal and stimulation, through a specially-selected blend of exfoliants, retinol and multi-action agents, and is designed to support the improvement of the skin’s barrier, as well as providing antioxidant protection and anti-irritant benefits

ZO Controlled Depth Blue Peel: Dr Nestor’s Medical Cosmetic Centre is proud to be one of only a select number of clinics in Britain to offer this advanced treatment. Beloved by Hollywood stars, this gold-standard skin-tightening treatment is a clinician-only peel, which is recommended for the treatment of scarring, severe laxity and textural damage and advanced melanoma.
