Time can wait: Your Best Skin Ever
Beyond botox, beyond aggressive therapies, there are skincare regimens for 50 plus skin that really deliver. It will take commitment and time but you can slow down the clock on ageing skin, says Carmel Mooney of Blackrock's SO Skin.
Turning Back time (really!): The Environ Active Vitamin A Facial
Packed with nourishing, anti-ageing ingredients, these Active Vitamin treatments will leave skin looking radiant and dewy. This scientific approach uses sound waves to enable 4000 times more penetration of the most active forms of Vitamins A, C and antioxidants into the lower layers of the skin. The treatment stimulates collagen, softens lines, improves elasticity, increases hydration and boosts radiance.
It is especially effective in treating sun-damage, pigmentation, premature ageing, dryness, uneven skin tone and scarring with measurable differences after just one session.
The Environ HydraBoost Facial: tackles lacklustre skin
The perfect antidote to dry, lacklustre skin, this intensive treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water is delivered into the skin's deeper layers. This intensive rehydration plumps the skin and reduces fine lines caused by dehydration - resulting in moisturised, lustrous, glowing skin.

Microneedling: stimulating new collagen production
The Dermica Pen is the latest development in medical skin needling. This advanced treatment promotes skin rejuvenation by creating thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which penetrate into the dermis stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.
The procedure incorporates the use of specifically targeted active serums which effectively treat a variety of skin conditions including aging and thinning skin, fine lines, enlarged pores and acne scarring. It’s fast, safe, effective and virtually pain free (at So Skin, we use a very effective numbing cream to keep clients completely comfortable) and its results are comparable to ablative treatments such as Laser Resurfacing, yet without the downtime associated with those treatments. Results are visible after just one treatment however a course of 3 to 5 treatments is recommended for best results.
