Dull skin treatments in Tunbridge Wells

Dull skin looks tired, tinged with a hint of grey – generally lacking that healthy glow we’re all longing for

As we age, this can become a common skin complaint.

What causes it?

As we age our cell turnover rate slows down and we lose the brightness in our skin. If dead skin cells are not regularly removed from the surface of the skin, a dull and uneven complexion will be the result of clogged pores.
The Sun and environmen To adequately help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun, “broad spectrum” sun protection from both UVA and UVB rays must be an integral part of your daily skincare routine. Medical skincare products help reinforce the skin’s natural protection against free radicals.
Poor quality makeup and failure to remove it completely can lead to a build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Explore our line of natural, mineral, Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup, from primers to foundations which nourish and protect your skin, giving you an even, fresh complexion.
Skincare products. We advise you to use medical grade skincare products to exfoliate, stimulate, nourish and protect your skin instead of moisturisers that make your skin ‘lazy’ and less able to hydrate itself. This can then lead to skin problems. Daily applications of oil rich moisturisers lead to the accumulation of dead cells on the surface of the skin, dryness, enlarged congested pores, acne and sensitivity.
Unbalanced diet
 Smoking : This affects collagen synthesis, constricts blood vessels and reduces extracellular matrix turnover. Poor circulation decreases nutrition and oxygen supply to the skin.

Skin Peels

Chemical peels are a useful part of most skincare regimes. We offer a number of skin peels that are designed to brighten and refresh dull skin. This skin resurfacing procedure involves the application of a Fruit Acid chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate or remove the top layers. After a chemical peel the skin is smoother, more radiant and younger looking. Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. During a complimentary consultation, our skin specialist can help choose the right chemical peel for you depending on your skin type, condition and tone.


Medical Microdermabrasion is an effective superficial exfoliating procedure that is ideal for treating dull skin, congested pores, uneven texture or superficial pigmentation from the very first treatment.  It also helps products to penetrate more effectively.

It works on all skin types and tones producing subtle changes in the skin by mechanically buffing away unwanted imperfections with microcrystals and vacuum.  This superficial skin exfoliation helps promote new skin cells and collagen production resulting in clearer, brighter skin.


Skin pigmentation caused by sun damage can really make someone look older than their years. That’s why we offer Laser or IPL Skin Rejuvenation and Pigmentation Removal, which is a very simple, proven way to quickly give you a clearer, brighter looking skin complexion


Skin care products, based on Retinol, Fruit Acids, Vitamin C and high factor sun block are absolutely vital for skin repair and skin health. We recommend Obagi or ZO medical grade products. These products will activate your skin cells, rebuild collagen, improve circulation, while hydrating and protecting your skin from further sun damage.
