Skincare routines for problem and ageing skin

"Everyone deserves clear, healthy skin"

As you age, your skin's collagen and elastin fibres degrade, plus the quality of your body's hyaluronic acid is reduced. As a result your skin becomes less elastic, rougher and often dryer.

Some of the contributing factors cannot be changed such as your individual genetic code and biological clock, but changes to lifestyle habits and skincare routines can make a huge difference to skin problems.
 
Using our skin analysis technology we can show you the condition of your skin and then recommend appropriate skincare products, skin treatments and supplements to reduce the signs of ageing or problem skin and help you look your best.

The DRVICTORIA™ skincare range uses scientifically proven ingredients in a simple daily regime to maintain beautiful healthy skin and reduce the signs of ageing. 

Find a simple solution according to your skin type and give your skin what it needs to flourish. Start your simple regime and watch as your skin responds by becoming brighter and smoother with fewer lines and visible pores.

 

Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that mainly affects your face. It's more common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men. We offer a range of gentle yet effective skin products to stimulate healthy skin whilst reducing rosacea flare-ups.

Whilst we cannot cure rosacea, we can reduce the effects and the impact through skincare, supplements and IPL treatments for facial redness..

As Scotland's the leading provider of Obagi skincare we can offer specifically formulated Obagi Nu-Derm and CLENZI-derm kits for normal to oily skin to help treat acne where it starts. This medically formulated skincare range requires a consultation and prescription for certain products.

We can combine your skincare regime with microneedling and / or chemical peels to reduce acne scarring and improve skin complexion. 

Always use sun protection - sun damage is the single greatest cause of ageing resulting in freckles, sun spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and at worst leading to skin cancer.

This doesn't mean you can't have fun in the sun - looking bronzed is a great way to look healthy, but always wear sun protection and avoid excessive periods of strong sun exposure. Using sunless tanners is a great way to top up that sun kissed look, but never use sun tanning machines as they accelerate skin damage and put you at risk of skin cancer.

In Scotland during the autumn and winter months we recommend you use a minimum SPF 15 and during the spring and summer months at least SPF 30. When going on holiday in hot countries you should use SPF 50.  

We offer a wide range of sun protection suitable for healthy, acne and rosacea skin types. One of most popular sun protection brands is Heliocare.
