The Skin Health Long Game

The age-old saying "prevention is better than cure" has long influenced modern healthcare principles since the 1500s – but what does this mean for our skin?

While there is much debate as to the ‘right age’ for active skincare and preventative treatments, the consensus is that it is never too early to do right by your skin and take care of it. Integrating non-surgical treatments into your skincare routine from your 20s can be an excellent way to focus on prevention without opting for highly invasive treatments.

A 2024 Hamilton Fraser study showed that ‘prejuvenation’ was a popular trend in the beauty and aesthetics industry, with 58.2% of 300 practitioners reporting having younger patients regularly requesting such treatments. Julie Scott, Julie Scott RGN NIP, Profhilo trainer says:

“Prejuvenation is the path to preserving the vitality and resilience of skin, it's about a commitment to lifelong skin health and I truly feel that adopting proactive skincare regime provides is the foundation for a healthy skin journey.”

While ageing is nothing to fear, playing the long game with our skin means we’ll reap the rewards later in life.


Hydrafacial: For regular skin-health maintenance

Suitable for almost all skin types and ages, Hydrafacial is an ideal starter treatment for younger skin. Regular skin maintenance with Hydrafacials will reduce the appearance of fine lines, thanks to the boost of hydration plumping up the skin. The removal of dead skin cells will also enhance the complexion, making for a fresh, youthful glow – personalised boosters such as the Murad Clarifying Booster can be added to the treatment to help with decongestion.

Delivered by an in-clinic professional, Hydrafacial uses a handpiece to deliver a unique hydradermabrasion technique using patented Vortex-Fusion Technology. The vacuum technology powers the device and works to painlessly remove impurities from within the skin surface, whilst simultaneously hydrating the skin with nourishing solutions. Using a 3-step cleanse, extract and hydrate process, skin will be rejuvenated and glowing.

The Perfect Peel: To fight oxidant damage  

For those with slightly more complex skin concerns (hyperpigmentation, acne scars, etc), we recommend The Perfect Peel. The medium-depth chemical peel will deliver younger, healthier and clearer in just one week, and can be used on all skin types.

So how does it help future-proof your skin? The Perfect Peel chemical peel founds itself on a key anti-ageing ingredient never before used in a peel: glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-ageing answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies naturally produce glutathione but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the ageing process itself.

Kelly Saynor, founder of The Perfect Peel distributor Medica Forte, says: “We recognise that no peel or product will stop the ageing process. What it will do, is vastly improve skin texture, pore size, sun damage, and wrinkles, in turn making skin appear fresher and more youthful.”

Profhilo®: For collagen banking

Ideal for those in their mid-twenties and above, Profhilo® promotes collagen banking by activating and growing four distinct types of collagen, to enhance overall skin quality and condition.

Profhilo® is a hyaluronic acid gel moisturising treatment, which is injected beneath the dermis layer of the skin by an in-clinic professional. More than just a skin hydrator, Profhilo is a potent alternative for bio-remodelling – it is not a dermal filler, a Polynucleotide, or a skin booster.  Profhilo® uses the purest, highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid on the market, and works by stimulating dermal cell activity, and collagen production, telling skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity – improving and restoring the firmness of the skin.

What sets Profhilo® apart is the patented NAHYCO® Hybrid Technology that powers it. Profhilo® uses this technology to make it possible to deliver a high concentration (64 mg) of hyaluronic acid while enhancing its durability against degradation.
