SUN DAMAGE

At Omniya Clinic in London

Too much exposure to UltraViolet (UV) rays is the cause of sun damage to the skin. Dry skins, premature wrinkles and hyperpigmentation are some of the indicators we have been out too long without sunscreen. So too are broken capillaries and age spots at a relatively young age.

When the skin feels the effects of UV rays on its surface (epidermis), melanin is produced in order to protect it. This results in the tanning effect. The darker the skin is, the more melanin produced and the more the epidermis has been exposed to UV. When the skin is burned by the sun its cells are damaged and it needs to get rid of them – hence the peeling effect. Worse, those same rays can cause long-term damage to collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in early wrinkles and sagging skin. These are most common on the face, hands, shoulders and arms – those areas most exposed to the sun.

Various non-invasive treatments can help minimise the damage caused by sun over the years. This includes skin peels, laser treatment, microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Skin peels remove the old, outer layer of skin, allowing a new healthier skin to grow. Laser treatment involves burning the outer layers while micro-needling encourages new growth by ‘injuring’ the epidermis. PRP is aimed at quickening the growth of collagen and elastin.

    • I've been going to Omniya for years and I've always been impressed. This review is long overdue. I've had a few procedures done with them and I've been thinking of doing a hair transplant for years, now that they're offering it I will definitely go ahead with it. They only work with the best doctors. Thank you Omniya. - Adam

      I was having trouble with my acne for a while. I had been to a few clinics before Omniya but didn't get the results I wanted.

      Omniya was recommended and had great reviews. I saw Kerry Lou, one of their skin specialist. She explained that with the right treatment and a little patience I would see results. I brought a course of facials. Each one is slightly different depending on what is needed. I'm very happy with the improvement. - Shayma

      Fantastic clinic. Everything you need in one place, I started seeing Dr Roked for HRT. She has changed my life. They have a pharmacy too which is convenient for me. I never write reviews but this clinic has changed my life! - Vanessa

    • I'm very impressed with this clinic. My experience from booking in with the reception team to being seen by one of their doctors has been phenomenal. I will definitely be recommending your services. Thank you Dr Roked for the level of care and how you've helped me so far. - Fred

      Fantastic face rejuvenation treatments. Dr Thu Linh NGuyen is extremely professional, gentle and so patient ! I am so grateful for her advice and so happy with the results ! - Henriette

      I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt
