Skin Deep

Oak Park Clinic welcomes a non-surgical answer to looking after your skin, in the form of SK.YN

Our skin is our largest organ, and it differs from person to person; from dry to oily, and everything in-between. As we grow, our skin never stops changing, and individually, we all tend to find a skin routine that works for us and our lifestyle. However, from time to time, hormonal changes, imbalances, and our age, can cause skin to become dry, saggy, tight, irritated or acne-prone – to name a few. In short, a different feeling or texture from the norm. You may turn to a change in face wash, daily moisturiser, an alternative beauty product or skin regime, but if you are not naturally receiving the results you’d hoped, why not turn to a skin specialist – or should we say, SK.YN specialist. 

What is SK.YN?
The SK.YN Clinic is a team run by two experienced skin specialists, Suzie and Rachel, who both have an interest and passion for healthy skin, regardless of your age. The idea behind the SK.YN Clinic, is to provide an expansive range of non-surgical antiageing and skin care treatments to help support the rejuvenation of your skin.

The Impact of SK.YN and your wellbeing:

A common but undiscussed aspect of having a skin concern is the impact it can have on our mental health. Although not everyone with a skin concern feels this way, there is ever growing evidence to suggest that it is becoming an increasing issue. The British institute of dermatologists have identified many ways poor skin health can have on our wellbeing and the exact reasons differ from client to client but can include:

  • Long term impact: Many skin concerns don’t have a cure and need long term management, this can be draining and financially impacting. 
  • Appearance: The physical appearance of the skin and the way in which others perceive us increasing appearance-related distress, social isolation and depression. 
  • Sleep: Some skin conditions, such as eczema, can make it difficult to sleep. Anyone who has had long-term sleep disruption will know the impact that this can have on mental health.
  • Pain, discomfort, and itch: Many conditions can cause pain, discomfort, and chronic itchiness. Managing this can have a serious impact on your mental health.

In addition to this, there is evidence to suggest that in some cases stress, anxiety and emotional distress can manifest themselves on the skin and can aggravate an existing condition.
