How to sparkle and shine at the Christmas Party

Whether you look forward all year to the festive social season or are relieved when it’s all over, you will enjoy Christmas parties much more if you are confident about the way you look.

Wearing a flattering but comfortable dress and getting a blow dry by your favourite hairstylist will boost your confidence levels but you may also want to follow in the footsteps of the A-listers and get a “red carpet” treatment for your face.

The Cooden Medical Group offers treatments with instant results for people who want to brighten their complexions and reduce the signs of ageing.

The first of these treatments is Dermalux light therapy, a clinically proven, non-invasive treatment for rejuvenation and problem skin conditions. It’s painless and relaxing and there is no downtime after the treatment. It works by using highly advanced LEDs to expose your skin to specific wavelengths of light. It uses different combinations to address a range of skin problems.

For example, if you want to rejuvenate aged skin or prevent signs of ageing the Dermalux Energise treatment will recharge your skin, energise and strengthen skin cells resulting in a more radiant, awakened complexion. If you are troubled by spots or redness then the Dermalux Resolve will help reduce blockages and calm your skin leaving it looking and feeling refreshed. It targets the bacteria that cause spots and reduces the production of sebum.

Another treatment much loved by celebrities is the ZO Stimulator Peel. It was developed in Beverly Hills and The Cooden Clinic is the only place in Sussex that currently offers it. It is a very mild chemical peel that instantly brightens the skin, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, evens pigmentation and improves the skin’s texture and tone by closing pores and clearing spots.

The Stimulator Peel is made up of a combination of lactic, citric and salicylic acid along with potent concentrations of other active ingredients to exfoliate the skin, stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin and reduce lines, wrinkles and other blemishes. Unlike other skin peels, which are longer acting but often cause the skin to flake as part of the treatment, the Stimulator Peel has no “downtime”.

Aesthetic Practitioner at The Cooden Clinic, Shannen Woods, said: It’s ideal if you have a special event coming up where it’s important you look and feel your best. Your skin will look amazing almost immediately afterwards – no flaking or redness. The treatment takes a maximum of 45 minutes so you could even have it done in your lunch hour!”

The team at Cooden Medical Group hopes you have a wonderful time over Christmas. Sparkle and shine!
