Discover Vitage®: Skincare’s Best Kept Beauty Secret

We all know that if you want radiant, healthy looking skin, you’ve got to give it some TLC. Skin is the body’s largest organ, and it’s exposed daily to all sorts of nasties, including chemicals, irritants and environmental pollution. Biologically speaking, skin is our first line of defence.

A Handy Guide to Anti-Ageing

They say the eyes are the mirrors of the soul, but it’s your hands that reveal the most where the ageing process is concerned. Most people (perhaps understandably) focus all their anti-ageing efforts and investments on their face, but neglecting your hands is most definitely a false economy, as they are especially vulnerable to environmental ageing factors and everyday wear and tear. That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to ‘Love Your Hands’ this September, as part of Hand Rejuvenation Month. There have been ... Read more

Take Control Of Your Moles

Skin lesions such as moles, cysts and skin tags are very common, and can be present almost anywhere on the body or face. Most cause no harm or discomfort – although it’s vital you keep a close eye on any changes in shape, size or colour, and see a doctor promptly if you have any concerns. While many people are comfortable with their “beauty spots” (think supermodel Cindy Crawford and her signature mole), others can’t wait to get rid of them. ... Read more

Microneedling: A Prickly Subject?

What is Microneedling? Skin needling is an increasingly popular treatment. However, there are many different forms available, such as Microneedling, Dermal Stamping and Dermal Rolling. They all work in broadly the same way: by puncturing the skin to create a controlled “injury” that prompts the body to heal itself by producing new collagen and elastin. However, certain methods are more invasive/painful than others. Prices also vary. What is a Dermal Roller? One of the earlier forms of microneedling is Dermal Rolling. A Dermal Roller ... Read more

There seems to be a common assumption that IPL and Laser are just different terms that describe the same thing. An understandable misconception, perhaps, given that many clinics like ... Read more
