From day one of setting up my aesthetic business the fundamental ethos here at The Medished had always been SKIN HEALTH FIRST. In my opinion healthy skin is the foundation for all non-surgical treatments, so that is at the forefront of all my consultations. Skin health has become even more important recently especially since the onset of the pandemic as how our skin looks plays an important part in our mental health and emotional well-being.
Anxiety, stress and overall uncertainty about the future can take a toll on our skin. Stress is a recognised trigger for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne, so it’s unsurprising that more people are reporting breakouts at this uncertain and very stressful time. Where possible mindfulness, meditation and exercise are also all great ways to relax and refocus. We are also constantly having to wear masks which is contributing to patients having 'maskne'. I've found that telephone and video skincare consultations have been very successful here at The Medished and I've helped many of my patients achieve glowing skin via online consultations.
In my skin clinic, I am proud to work with some of the world’s best medical grade skincare brands.. including Obagi Medical, ZOskinhealth and SkinBetter Science. Conventional skincare products can only offer limited results as they are not licensed to penetrate through the epidermis to the deeper dermal layers of the skin.
Prescription product targets the epidermis, through to the dermis and transform your skin’s health to look brighter, clearer, softer, smoother, firmer and naturally younger! They are also highly effective at treating skin conditions like Pigmentation, Hyperpigmentation, Rosacea and Acne.

A FINAL WORD ON 'MASKNE'
I know that when I get home from work I want to rip my mask of my face.. as my skin feels like it can't breathe. Wearing one is an essential requirement to keep us safe, however many of my patients in clinic have been complaining of #maskne⠀
Cleansing is such an important part of your daily skincare routine, as it removes makeup, pollution, sweat and surface debris. It's even more important now with all the mask wearing. Once we've cleansed active products can effectively penetrate your skin. Always remember to cleanse morning and night! I'm a fan off double cleansing at night with some facial massage to improve the blood flow to the face. This will reduce puffiness and give you a glow.. my one minute of relaxation advise at the end of the day! Pictured below are a few of my favourites by Obagi Medical.
