Skin is the largest organ in the human body. It protects the body from harmful things and helps regulate body temperature; yet despite its universal function, everybody’s skin is completely unique. Different skin types (dry, oily or combination), require contrasting skincare regimes, whereas skin conditions require specific treatments.
At Harpenden Skin Clinic, our in-depth, free-of-charge Skin Analysis allows us to effectively treat the skin based on the client’s individual requirements. By taking a detailed analysis of the skin, we are able to effectively diagnose any underlying conditions and recommend appropriate treatments.
Our Skincare Regimes reflect the unique requirements of each client. Our wide range of treatments combined with high-quality, medical-grade skincare products, allow us to effectively treat every type of skin condition.
Medical-Grade Skincare Products are only sold by establishments which operate under a physician’s licence. Their skincare claims are backed up by research. Unlike high street shops, whose products contain substitutes, medical-grade skincare products are required to contain ingredients that are 99% pure. Not only that, but the active ingredients must be of a high enough concentration that they will deeply nourish and treat the skin. Harpenden Skin Clinic uses the brands SkinCeuticals and Medic8, which are also available to buy.
Your skin specialist will go through an in-depth consultation and ask you questions about your skin, lifestyle, current skincare routine and any concerns you have. They will then assess your skin using a specialized skin scanner. This will help to identify your skins current health.
After a detailed skin analysis has been performed, your physician will recommend a treatment programme uniquely tailored to your skin’s needs. They will book in the procedures you elect to have and talk through any pre-treatment requirements. The physician may also make suggestions of skincare products to buy, allowing you to continue your new skincare regime at home.
No. There is no obligation to proceed with the skin care treatments your physician recommends. If you wish to tweak your skincare plan to include additional or fewer treatments, then you are free to do so. Your skin care plan is just that – yours.
