Medik8 - Making a difference for those with Sensitive Skin, Acne or Rosacea

People of all ages and skin types suffer from sensitive skin, making them susceptible to irritation. It is generally thought that around 50% of women and 40% of men suffer with some degree of sensitivity. The reason may be genetic or stress and increasingly external environmental factors (such as chemical pollutants) and even inadequate skincare regimens are being seen to lead to increased skin reactions.

Too often the cries from consumers are that ‘serious’ cosmeceuticals are irritating and inflaming their skin. Those suffering from acne, rosacea or psoriasis usually have sensitivities that can be exacerbated by aggressive treatment products. Medik8 however is a cosmeceutical brand that works simultaneously by delivering efficacy in skincare products while at the same time not upsetting the skin’s delicate balance.

Those looking for a cosmeceutical skincare alternative no longer need to compromise. "While we cannot completely eliminate sensitive skin for everyone, we make using top performance anti ageing skincare a lot more comfortable,” says Elliot Isaacs, medical director and founder of Medik8 Skin Research.

Elliot says the age old saying often applied to getting results - ‘No pain, No gain’ - is a myth. "Powerful and effective ingredients are not beyond the reach of people who want the gain without the pain,” he says.

Latest independent research contradicts previous assumptions that aggressive products which cause inflammation achieve the best results (the idea being that aggressive products provoke a healing response). "In fact, current opinion is that inflammation merely damages the cell, causing long-term skin damage and perversely causing premature skin ageing.

Most people associate sensitivity with dry skin, but research has found that people with sensitive skin frequently fall into the oily, acne, normal and redness-prone categories,” explains Elliot. "Medik8 is the only professional range to address this need.”

All the way from England, Dr Elliot Issac, Cosmetologist and Founder of Medik8, will be visiting New Zealand & Australia for the 1st time in March, to introduce the latest developments in Advanced Skincare, Skin Needling and Stem Cell Therapy. This seminar should not be missed!
