What is Skin Health?

Skin Conditioning
Skin health is fundamental to all our procedures at the Jonathan Britto Clinic. Surgical and non-surgical approaches to the prevention of ageing work on the foundations and architecture of the face but the full benefits will only be seen when the skin ‘envelope’ is healthy, smooth and even in colour.

Skin health and vitality reflects inner wellbeing as well as our exposure to the environment. It is an indicator of general health and is under daily attack from both internal and external influences which can accelerate the ageing process.

The good news is that we can control the challenges to the skin, and reverse existing damage with excellent skin health programmes – ‘at home’ treatments supported with state of the art technology in-clinic and our signature facials. We have all your skin concerns covered…

Start loving the skin you’re in! We all desire beautiful flawless skin but maybe don’t believe it can be achieved. Our bespoke, well-planned programmes incorporate skin health and lifestyle changes a comprehensive approach for vital, youthful skin.

We educate all our patients in good skin health, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t. When our patients get the skin they’ve always wanted the difference in confidence is phenomenal. Suddenly they feel ‘noticed’ and don’t have to hide behind make up or feel embarrassed. It can never be underestimated how improved skin health has a positive effect on mental well-being and self-esteem

Benefits

Why would you consider skin health treatments?

Skin Conditioning
Most men and women will suffer from skin problems at some time in their lives. It may be acne as a teenager or later in adult life, or altered pigmentation from sun exposure, environmental damage or hormonal changes. The resulting loss of confidence can be emotionally distressing, leading to loss of mental health and well-being.

Ageing results in significant skin change. A loss of collagen and changes in the dermal glycosaminoglycan matrix reduce hydration. Changes in the cellular composition of the skin cause fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and a rough, course texture. Redness, high colour and the appearance of fine red blood vessels can all appear and prematurely age the skin.

we We have programmes to suit all skin concerns, budgets and lifestyles. We’ll start with an education in healthy skin health practice and then plan for specific treatments and procedures to address the specific skin concern.

Good skin health commands a healthy ‘diet’. Feed your skin a balanced ‘diet’ of the right nutrients and you will achieve a healthier, glowing, even skin. Supplement the ‘diet’ with enhancing treatments and you have the recipe for good skin health.

At the Jonathan Britto Clinic we treat many skin health concerns with a variety of proven procedures and selected products. We have the luxury of hand picking the best products from some of the leading skin brands and matching these with a range of cosmeceutical (prescription only) skin health treatments. In the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon and team these can be used safely and effectively to treat a range of concerns:

  • Chemical Peels
    Chemical skin peels restore, revitalise and regenerate the skin, removing some of the visible signs of ageing and restoring the skin health. Environmental skin damage assaults our skin from birth to maturity, and we have the means to defend and protect our vital skin against the prevails of the modern World: the city toxins, and the sun damage via a diminishing ozone layer.

    Chemical peels refresh, rejuvenate and rebuild the skin, for the prevention of skin damage and to treat and reverse existing skin damage and ageing. At the Jonathan Britto Clinic we use a range of chemical peels to suit all budgets and social commitments and with the options of light, medium and deep chemical peeling techniques.

    We are able to advise the peel that suits you and suits your skin. For our deeper chemical peels, we use the Obagi Blue peel that gives superior results on many skin problems from severe sun damage to acne scarring. Our medium and light chemical peels work on moderate to mild ageing concerns and can be safely given to prevent ageing and promote skin health.

FAQs

Skin conditioning means so much more than “skin-care”. Whereas “skincare” is an industry, inevitably commercially driven, “skin health” is a medical specialty driven by evidence. We work with products and prescriptions that are effective, for health improvements that deliver aesthetic benefit, and quality of life!

Whether in synergy with surgery, or as simple standalone changes of habit to improve the quality of your skin, there is a programme for you – where you will see benefit in health, well-being, and confidence in appearance.

Arguably, aesthetic plastic surgical care is incomplete without a strategy for the skin. We can be as sophisticated and technology driven as our learning and skills allow with our surgery, but in the absence of good skin health the result is incomplete. Holistic, multidisciplinary, and joined up care – which gives the best results for happy patients. This is where the professional satisfaction of providing a great service lies….
