How to have luminous skin for your wedding with Dermaroller and Restylane Vital

Mother of the Bride

Article by Dr Tracy Mountford

With the announcement of the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton, it begs the question what will Mrs Middleton being doing in preparation for the wedding? With the whole world watching and the advent of High definition TV, is it no wonder she will probably want advice to get her skin looking as clear and dewy as possible and will need to be preparing a good few months in advance for optimum results……..

We asked Dr Tracy Mountford what the best options would be for a Mother of the Bride (or groom!).

How to have photo luminous skin with combination treatments

Great looking skin is not just about smoothing away a few lines and wrinkles with Botox and replacing lost volume with dermal fillers, it’s also having clear hydrated smooth photo luminous skin!

Dr Tracy Mountford has found with combination treatments such as Restylane Vital and Genuine Dermaroller you can turn your skin back years as this combination treatment helps to stimulate your body’s own natural collagen whilst rehydrating the skin at the same time, a long term result with little or no down time, leaving your skin firmer, smoother and tighter.  
Not only is it consistently achieving excellent results on the face neck and chest we are now getting superb results on the body, particularly the crêpey arms and abdomen. This collagen stimulating procedure is ideal for tricky areas such as arms, but can also be used on stretch marks and acne scarring on the face and backs.

My son is getting married next year and it’s the first of my children to do so. So I wanted to make sure that I was going to look as stunning as I could, leaving nothing to chance. I started thinking of the wedding photo’s, which then made me look at my face more closely, which spurred me into making a consultation at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic to see what could be done other than fillers and botox!

Genuine Dermaroller combined with Restylane Vital

After a consultation I was prescribed a course of Genuine Dermaroller combined with Restylane Vital. It was made clear to me it was a long term goal to get the optimum results I was looking for and within 6 months the results were spectacular! In all I had 3 Restylane Vital hydrating treatments and 4 Dermaroller micro needling treatments.

My skin is now far more youthful with fewer lines, especially around the eye area.  It also looks a lot ‘younger’ and ‘fresher’! I have had loads of compliments on how well I look without anyone being able to be specific as to what the difference is.

I have been a beauty therapist for more years than I care to say and am quite nervous about treatments, however this one I am convinced about and plan to maintain the results by having these treatments topped up yearly.

Prices are from:
£550 course of three Restylane Vital
£350 per Genuine Dermaroller treatment
