Lockdown Swap 

At home solutions while clinics are closed

We are still unsure when Aetshetic clinics will be allowed to re-open. The hope was 4th July, however with the recent government guidelines stating beauty is unable to re-open on this date, there is still confusion as to whether this includes Aesthetics or not. While we wait to update you on this, we thought we would do a feature on at home solutions to your favourite in clinic treatments to help keep you going.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Retinol 

While retinol will not give you that immediate smooth look; it will reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time by increasing the production of collagen. In addition, to making new collagen, retinol also works by neutralizing free radicals in the skin that may be causing collagen damage.
You may also see improvements in:

  • skin texture
  • hydration levels
  • skin tone
  • age spots
  • overall pigmentation

Medifine Recommends…
