Stress is a common occurrence in anyone’s lives, whether it is caused by a significant event or just the result of urban modernisation today. It can worsen skin issues which may lead to you experiencing more stress, thus turning a vicious cycle. The side effects of stress can wreck havoc on you physiologically and psychologically, and reflect poorly on your skin.
There is also other factors that cause your skin to become stressed from skin issues like exposure to UV, dehydration and harmful pollutants. Fret not, your once glowing complexion is not yet relegated to the past. Your stressed-out skin may be in need of some TLC with these treatments.
Pimples and acne flare-ups
When you are under stress, your body tends to pump out cortisol which causes your skin glands to increase in oil production. Excess oil can get trapped inside hair follicles easily along with dead skin cells and dirt, thereby causing pimples to occur inevitably.
Q-Switched ND:YAG laser is a common form of laser rejuvenation used today that can penetrate the dermis layer of the skin and promote the growth of collagen, for a more radiant looking complexion. The laser energy can also kill acne-causing bacteria, known as P. acnes, to reduce acne and pimple breakouts. At the same time, it shrinks the oil glands in the skin which helps with oil control. This 10-minute treatment has zero downtime and is popular as a lunchtime procedure.
When one is under stress, it is easy to be overwhelmed and distracted, and thus you may be neglecting your skincare regime. This results in poor care of the skin that leaves the skin dull, tired and dehydrated. Tackle clogged pores and rough skin textures with TCS 3D Cell Regeneration Treatment.
Using patented 50 Micron Jet Technology, these tiny high-pressure micro-jets can clean out your skin’s pores from dead skin cells and dirt. At the same time, nutrients are delivered to the dermis layer of the skin that helps to stimulate blood circulation and regenerate skin collagen for a skin lifting effect. The result is supple and hydrated skin with a glowing complexion that is rid of impurities.
Dehydration and wrinkling
Dry skin and fine lines are some of the stress effects imposed on the skin. When cortisol is released due to stress, it encourages glycation, a process that damages collagen and increases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, cortisol also decreases the production of natural moisturizer in our body, hyaluronic acid, and damages the skin’s protective qualities that help to keep hydration levels up.
Skin Boosters are injections that deliver hyaluronic acid to restore hydration in your skin. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the skin, this treatment can boost hydration levels safely to improve in a brighter, plumper and more youthful skin. Skin texture is also improved along with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
