Hydrate your skin with a facial treatment

Looking to address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness, tone and vibrancy, skin texture, brown spots or oily and congested skin? HydraFacial could help. The treatment uses a patented Vortex-Fusion system and a signature vacuum technology which, when used in conjunction with the spiral design of the HydroPeel Tips device, can dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously hydrating the skin. The procedure is suitable for different skin types and addresses various skincare needs at once, and could bring long-lasting results over time with ongoing sessions.

Improve the quality of your skin using a serum capsule

Having radiant skin isn’t always easy, but supplements like Aesthetically Perfect SKIN could give you the glow you’re looking for. The luxury skincare brand offers a dermatologically tested serum capsule range of hyaluronic acid, retinol, vitamin C and niacinamide, which aims to embrace skin imperfections rather than conceal them. Formulated with a blend of skin-enhancing ceramides, its products are cruelty-, fragrance- and paraben-free, and 100% biodegradable. The Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsule helps reduce moisture loss and replenish the skin’s radiance; the Vitamin C Ceramide Capsule works towards brightening your complexion; the Niacinamide Ceramide Capsule helps balance complexion that lacks lustre; and the Retinol Ceramide Capsule promotes a smoother-looking and temporarily firmer facial contour.

Seek help from a pain medicine specialist

Do you suffer from persistent lower back, neck and shoulder pain or sciatica? You might consider seeing a pain medicine specialist such as Dr Blackburn. After a thorough assessment, he can formulate a treatment plan tailored to your problem. As well as advising on medication, he can recommend appropriate interventional therapy such as image-guided diagnostic lumbar or cervical facet joint or sacroiliac joint injections. Sciatica causing leg pain due to a trapped nerve can be treated with an epidural or targeted nerve root injections, while a frozen shoulder may unlock with a suprascapular nerve block, which could help avoid risky surgery. Dr. James Blackburn works with St George’s Hospital Tooting and southwest London pain services, as well as Parkside Hospital, among other establishments.
