Treat Your Skin Discolouration Today

Stop worrying and start acting! How to treat your skin discolouration today!

There are a lot of wonderful benefits to ageing; increased wisdom, more self confidence, higher pay grades, family status and so forth but with all of these wonderful pluses, there are also a handful of downsides. Wrinkle prevention is something we’ve all been taught since a young age. Nightly face cream application is something most girls have witnessed their mother doing by the ripe old age of 10, so yeah, you get it.

But what about when the problem isn’t wrinkles, but instead dark spots? We never expected the thrill of dark brown splotches sprinkled across our faces. Okay maybe thrill is the wrong word? Should we instead say, dismay? Or maybe just confusion? Either way, we just didn’t expect it.

Hyper pigmentation is something that is incredibly common and can come in a variety of different forms. Whether it’s sunspots or freckles, dark patches or uneven skin tone, it’s real, but skin discolouration treatment is always available.

Before we solve the problem however, it’s always a good idea to try to prevent it in the first place. If you’re prone to dark spots or your parents currently suffer from them, you definitely want to be sun smart. For dark spot prevention you should always use the recommended SPF amount, anytime you are spending an extended amount of time outdoors. Even on cloudy days! Put it this way, no one ever says, ‘I wish I hadn’t worn sunscreen’.  Right? Right.

If you’re not interested in prevention and just want a solution there are treatments out there for you. At Spectrum we provide a selection of equipment for skin discolouration treatment. All treatments are non-invasive procedures. By using intense pulsed light we’re able to specifically target the pigmented area and treat only that spot while leaving the surrounding skin untouched.

Clinics that use our equipment will always work with you to create a treatment plan that will typically be comprised of 5 separate sessions spaced out over 8-12 weeks apart.  If you’re worried about pain, it typically feels like a sunburn, but if you’re still concerned your therapist will recommend a topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment.

Industry News

Give the people what they want!

Our team at Spectrum are passionate about delivering superior quality service to each of our clients. As part of this commitment we endeavour to provide you with only the latest and greatest news in the beauty industry.

While we aren’t planning on telling you what lipstick colours are hot for spring (hot pinks and corals, ladies) we do want to provide you with useful facts and information that can potentially make a difference to your bottom line.

In The States for example, a recent study was conducted to look further into a rise in plastic surgery, where one in three surgeons saw a 30% increase in business.  The study showed that many clients who were considering plastic surgery where doing so due to social media’s influence.

There are even entire books being released with nothing but celebrity ‘selfies’. No content, just photos (we’re looking at you Kim Kardashian). In such an environment, it’s no wonder people are feeling the pressure to look great in photos. And if it’s happening in the US you can bet it’s happening right here. You can’t even walk through the shops without narrowly avoiding being hit by a selfie stick anymore.

If your clients (or you) are feeling insecure about their looks, there are way less invasive options for them to consider than typical plastic surgery. Now is the time to provide them with simpler, safer options! Whether it’s acne, wrinkles, cellulite, skin tone, scarring or stretch marks, odds are that there is a simple, safe procedure you can add to your product offering to assist them.

At the end of the day, it’s all about bringing your customers exactly what they want in an effective and simple way. If you don’t yet have the ability to deliver these options at your salon, clinic or practice, contact our friendly team today. We can walk you through the options available to make sure you’ve got what your customers already want.

Stress Effects on Skin

When your clients (and frankly, you) are feeling stressed, it shows. Not only does it have negative effects on business, family, friends and lives in general, it also has major effects on their skin. We know first hand that stress proclaims war on skin first, so we also know how important a great skincare routine is to combat it. We’ve taken the time to compile a skincare solution to help your clients fight stress and stay bright and beautiful through it all.

So next time they tell you their skin is suffering, you’ll have the tools to help.

Take care: Your clients need to be sure they take time for themselves. If they’re feeling stress and their skin is starting to dull, the first thing they need to do is start taking better care of themselves. This may seem like common sense but you’d be surprised how many people overlook this detail. Drink water, eat right and exercise, there is no better place to start.

Find their product: You likely have a great skincare line at your clinic or salon that can assist them with the basics like moisturising.  One great night cream or moisturiser will make all the difference to their daily routine.

Suggest a facial: Sometimes a moment of relaxation and a great facial will help improve their skin and their stress levels. If they leave feeling great and looking even better, let them know there is a more permanent fix available too.

Look into Skin Brightening Treatment:  We’d be willing to bet that the majority of your clients don’t even know there are skin-brightening treatments available to them. This is a great opportunity to educate them and help get them the results they’re looking for. Treatment from a Fractional RF system offers a long-term solution to stress affected skin.  By assisting with uneven skin tone and skin dullness, your clients will leave looking fresh and feeling great with little to no downtime.

Lighten their load: If a client comes to you for a facial, haircut or anything really, and they’re complaining of stress, take time to commiserate (we know you feel it too) and then do your best to make it easy on them. How do you this? Just offer them a cup of coffee or a friendly face. It will make all the difference to their day and probably yours too.

new technology; very low frequency impulses

Very Low Frequency Impulse Device

This find at Cosmoprof Bologna looks like an exciting, all-round wellness and anti-ageing technology. The new device analyses an individual’s biocellular resources and restores the equilibrium by means of physiological bio-stimulation.

This is not a laser, or magnetic or muscle stimulation. The energy frequency is approximately equal to the heart rate and significantly lower than the frequency of the device that stimulates the muscles.
