Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline pun...you'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

I received my Spmu eyeliner treatment today at Smileworks. I am completely over the moon with the results and would highly recommend the treatment. The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away. Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen. The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works. They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel. Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment. Their smile really works.

team I'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date: After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas !

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now... Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on. Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease. Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing. From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened. This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.

I arrived at Smileworks just as they were closing early for the Christmas break. When I explained my situation (needed emergency treatment) & was going on holiday on Boxing Day MJ agreed to sort out my tooth. She was so friendly & I didn't feel like I was putting her out at all. One of the girls who had her coat on to go home even offered to stay to help. Within 20 minutes I was sorted out & could get on with my Christmas shopping!!! Thank you MJ & the nice dental nurse I now know I go away without having to worry about my tooth. 👍

I felt so welcome and comfortable here! I admire Dr MJ very much, because I did root treatment, which I thought was painful and complex. But it only took 1 hour and I did not feel a little pain. I trust them so much that I feel sleepy! And the reception girls are energetic and full of smiles. This is a wonderful place to make your smile beautiful and confident!

Smileworks are by far the best dentist I’ve been too!! So friendly and welcoming, the waiting area is fun, the receptionist are very helpful and informative, the dentists are highly skilled and make you feel comfortable and are very reassuring. I have had metal braces before when I was younger and feared getting them again but I am happy I went with Smileworks MJ and Bambi who have both been my dentist are fab as well as each assistant that supports them. I actually enjoy going each month and finding out what stage I am at and what’s to come next I never feel anxious. I’ve actually referred two people here, worth every penny 🙂

I’ve been going to Smileworks for all my treatments since it first opened and I have not and will not go anywhere else. Everyone is always commenting on how good my lips look, my skin. My teeth are straight after only 3 months of a brace. Everyone there is so friendly and everything is explained throughly. The surgery is so clean and modern and MJ is the most qualified person out there for anything you need. I shall be continuing to go there for the rest of my time. Amazing. Love all the team at Smileworks 💕

I've recommended Smileworks to a few people now, as I've had nothing but good experiences within the past 6 months. I decided to get my braces fitted here because I thought, with all the good reviews, I couldn't go wrong. I'm so glad I braved it because the results, only 5 months into the treatment, are amazing!!! MJ and Georgi are absolutely lovely. They're so friendly, and really just make you feel so comfortable there, which is a massive plus for nervous patients, as I was to begin with. The waiting area and reception is so fun. It makes a really nice change to what you usually see in a dentists waiting room. So, if you're thinking about going to Smileworks, do it! They're fantastic 😀

I needed an emergency appt & got one quickly. I needed a tooth extraction - I had an excellent (female) dentist who gave a really good local (enough & I could still feel my face!). The extraction was tough but I was well cared for. I've not had any problems at all since and I had it taken out 4 days ago. Thank you.

I was initially nervous and apprehensive. I hadn't visited this practice before but I had done my homework and went here on recommendation. I booked with MJ and went to have some work done with my upper lip & facial aesthetics. She put me at ease completely and I was expecting pain. It was so easy, straightforward, and I will definitely go back. I was a little tender the day after, but there was no discomfort on the day of treatment and it was much easier than having a dental filling 🙂 My result has been fabulous and I am very happy and would certainly recommend.

A superb experience! From the initial call to the reception team through to the treatment and after-care level of service, my expectations were exceeded in every aspect. This is a very smart, clean, modern and friendly dental clinic with customers at the heart of service. The team of professionals take time to understand the issue, explain possible causes, possible treatments and put you at your ease. This was a first-class experience and although I don't live near here, I am considering switching from my regular dentist to Smileworks Liverpool. Oh and for aviation geeks, the clinic has an airline theme which is refreshingly different to the traditional style of dental surgeries.

I chose Smileworks for my braces and could not be happier with my decision and have been recommending them ever since! There is always a friendly atmosphere at Smileworks and I’m always talked through what will be happening during my appointment. The late opening hours are perfect for fitting in around work and I have never had to wait longer than my given appointment time on every visit so far. In just 5 months Smileworks have managed to drastically straighten my teeth which I didn’t even think was possible after expecting a minimum of 1 year treatment!

Will definitely be recommending to friends and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment!

Excellent treatment performed by professional dentists. I did NOT feel the dentist's hands when digging the tooth that caused a strong pain. I did NOT feel at all what happened:) smile and thanks a lot after 30 min of treatment. A narrative: The clinic gave me a fast track consultation as an emergency appointment when I call them in the early morning because of sudden and increasing pain over night after passing another clinic in a day before. Recent equipments of x-ray 4k that can take images of teeth and identity problems before handelling any treatment clearly after 5 min. The clinic is on high standards. It is highly appreciated and highly recommended. Thanks a lot.

Friendly, bubbly, knowledgable and considerate. The treatment was top class, the facilities brilliant and the location very central and convenient. I don't often bother to leave reviews on Google, but I think it's worth the effort this time. Well done to all at Smileworks - outstanding.

Amazing customer care and advice and treatment for removal of a very painful wisdom tooth. NHS removal via my own dentist was going to be 6-8weeks waiting time. Smileworks were very understanding and arranged emergency appointment and then an extraction within a few days. There were no complications and the whole experience was first class. Everything was explained and there were excellent follow up calls to check I was Ok and no issues. So glad not to be taking anymore pain relief. Am considering switching my dentist!

Amazing! In order to get braces I have done a comprehensive research and booked initial appointments in several places in Liverpool. I have found out that in many of them I wouldn’t be treated by an orthodontist, but by a person who only has a certificate (and is lacking the knowledge and experience that an orthodontist has), and in some places there was a weird, cold, "we don't really care" attitude, plus I would only see a dental nurse. Smileworks keeps it's standards high, will always welcome you like an old friend, with smiles and care! Laurence, the orthodontist, very nice and very professional guy, investigated my case, went through a treatment plan with me, and I left happy, knowing I found my place and that I can trust them. My first appointment with Smileworks was 10 months ago, and since then I enjoy every visit, every conversation, every appt follow up, everything about this place! Great energy, great people and great results. It’s a no brainer, I can’t recommend it enough! Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for your customers!

The best money well spent, my appointment was with Zoe. I felt welcomed, I was thoroughly advised on my options and what to expect. Very honest about the pros and cons regarding the treatment. I had one tooth pulled out and I felt nothing bearing in mind that this "thing" was "rotten" but "clinging for dear life", yet I felt nothing. Zoe made me roar with laughter with the conversations she was having with me and her colleague, whilst playing "tug of war" with the tooth. Errors made by my previous dentist Zoe corrected and I am well pleased. Very sterile, good looking business. Thankyou

I unfortunately lost a tooth a few years ago due to a nasty abscess that too many root canal treatments could not cure. I decided at the beginning of the year that it was time to fix my smile and went for a consultation for a dental implant. I visited a couple of dental practices and decided on smileworks due to the friendliness of staff and their ability to answer all of my questions and put my mind at ease. Plus an added benefit was that they offered credit to help finance the treatment. I could not be more happy with my decision and my results. I have a perfect smile once more and dealing with the team was an absolute pleasure! I cannot recommend their services highly enough.

She was so patient and spent a ridiculously long time making sure I went home happy! Would 100% recommend to everyone!! X

I went to smileworks last week for a new retainer. The service I received was great, from meeting the receptionists to when I was receiving treatment from Paula and the dental nurse. Everyone was very smiley, friendly and helpful. Paula especially took the time to explain whitening treatments to me (as I mentioned I would like whiter teeth on my patient details form) and also explained treatments such as composite bonding which could help me achieve the perfect smile I was looking for. The dental nurse helping was also very calming and patient. I would definitely recommend to others and would really like to compliment their great customer service. Thanks smileworks and all their lovely staff.

I feel 5 star is not enough and those guys deserve an infinite number of stars and a unicorn on top of that! I have a severe phobia if it comes to my teeth, I'm a survivor of Polish public dentist care and let me tell you that's something straight from nightmares and torture chambers. As a results my teeth are not in a great way (those that did survive), to add to the "fun" I also have major orthodontic issues. I knew I needed help and it took me about a year and a half (this is not an exaggeration) to make my way to Smileworks. In the meantime I tried two other 5-star rated places and I wasn't convinced enough to stick around. The second I called Smileworks I had a warm fuzzy feeling in my belly that this place is the right place finally, It took a few months and multiple appointment before the right treatment plan could be created, since my case is complicated to say the least. I feel that there was a LOT of thoughts put into finding a solution, which made me feel at ease and gain enough trust to go ahead with the treatment. Every time I come to visit everyone is just brilliant. All the ladies and gents are nice and bubbly, which definitely helps to relax. Their approach is very gentle, a lot of attention is given to the patients and you just get the feeling that this guys really know what they do. I feel spoiled and I stopped fearing every dentist visit as I used to in the past. I know it sounds odd, but if anyone is able to make dentist appointments as pleasurable as possible, that's the people at Smileworks! As to address the money, things like that cost a lot, that's the unfortunate reality and there's no way to avoid that. For what I've been offered i think that's worth every penny. If it comes to the plane theme, I think it's amazing and I absolutely love it, especially because of all the little details. Finally a place with a sense of humor! I get how people scared of dentist AND flying can find it disturbing, but I think that's just an edge case. I will preach the genius of this place forever and share it with anyone who is eager to listen (or is not eager to listen at all but just haven't ran fast enough from me).

First time for lip fillers, so obviously a little nervous on the outcome but I am over the moon. A natural yet full look could not recommend smileworks anymore. MJ is unreal at what she does and puts you at ease within a few seconds of the consultation whilst also giving all the right info and questions. Excited for another ml already!

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance

 

 

Here at Smileworks we offer a number of chemical peels.  These are basically weak acids that remove the top layers of skin leaving beautiful blemish free skin beneath.  Skin peels can reduce pore size, create a wonderful glowing complexion and make you feel a million dollars.  The skin is like the canvass that we work from when doing other facial aesthetic treatments like Plexr, Cheek Fillers, and semi permanent makeup.

 

 

You’re probably thinking back to that episode in Sex And The City where Samantha looked like a bacon frazzle and bits of her face were falling off all over the show.  This is not the reality of skin peels and some of them are so gentle that you’ll barely notice any flaking at all. Mechanical abrasion such as using scrubbing brushes to remove dead skin is not recommended and is more likely to cause you to break out in acne or damage the skin.  So peels are the way forward in 2018.

 

 

The chemical peels of ten years ago have largely gone out of fashion.  The purpose of a peel is to refresh your skin and take away sun damage and imperfections.  The use of uber-strength peels that give you chemical burns and leave you physically (and mentally) scarred has been superseded by peels that are compatible with daily life.  We want you to look good without having to take a week off work or walk around with a paper bag on your head!

 

 

This is where glycolic peels and salicylic acids are often the best choices.  Both are used in superficial peels that take away the upper 2-3 layers of epidermis (these are dead anyway) and allow the skin to breathe, shed and get rid of imperfections such as acne and sun spots (FYI, freckles are not “angel kisses”, they are very real sun damage!).

 

 

 

Glycolic Peels

Check out Hannah’s glycolic peel profile if you’re looking for all types of peels as she’s our resident expert.  Check out her latest review here:

 

Abby Harding: " had the most amazing glycolic peel with Hannah today! My skin feels incredible and already looks much clearer. Hannah is such a pro and gave me some fab advice for my skincare. I can’t wait for my next peel! Thanks Hannah! 😘 Xxxx"

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is The Obagi Blue Peel?

 

The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is an amazing salicylic acid based peel.  Great for acne, scarring and sun damage, this peel will leave skin feeling fresher, tighter and brighter.  The effects are visible immediately as a tightening of the skin and evening of the skin tone and long term effects show decrease in pigmentation.  Because it contains salicylic acid it is also great for acne and will reduce blemishes.

 

Here’s our very own Dr MJ Rowland-Warmann BSc BDS MSc Aes.Med. MJDF RCS (Eng) having a Blue Peel Radiance treatment.

 

Blue Peel Radiance

 

 

The frosty appearance means that it’s working it’s magic – the skin has been dealt a superficial chemical burn (nothing ouchy, don’t worry) and the top layers of dead skin are reacting to this.  The treatment is a little tingly, but not uncomfortable.  And below is the result immediately after the peel has been neutralised and removed.

 

 

Blue peel radiance before and after

 

 

My skin feels wonderfully clean, soft and refreshed.  I don’t look like a bacon frazzle afterwards and my face hasn’t fallen off.  You need to understand that there is little or no downtime with these treatments and you won;t need time off from work or to take a holiday to recover!

 

 

I expect to see some light skin shedding in about 3 days’ time which is easily manageable and I wear Obagi SPF50 every day anyway so my skin is protected against the elements and the sunshine.  People love sunshine but you need to remember it’s actually a very large thermonuclear reactor and spits out some very dangerous radiation that over time causes a great deal of damage to the outer and underlying layers of the skin.

 

 

I love this treatment and it is one of the reasons why my skin is flawless.  I combine Obagi BPR with the Nu Derm system which I use daily.  I would consider this treatment a MUST for anyone who loves their skin.  Here’s the finished result.  I get lots of compliments on my skin and it’s not because I’m lucky – it’s because I spend an enormous amount of time looking after it.

Dermapen

 

Dermapen is an automated micro-needling device which makes lots of tiny little holes in the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production withhin the layers of the skin. This results in skin tightening, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenation of the skin. It can also be used to treat acne scarring, resulting in smoothing of the treated area. The damage to the skin is much less than conventional roller-needling and is almost painless. It can be used on sensitive areas of the skin and there is minimal downtime.

Peels

 

Peels are a great way to wake up dull, tired looking skin. Peels can help to improve the texture of the skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve pigmentation, acne and just generally make your skin feel fresher, smoother and better.

 

 

We use a range of different peels here at Smileworks, from very superficial to medium depth. Deep peels are for general anaesthesia and are mainly a thing of the past, as most of the effects that used to be only possible with deep peels can now be achieved with a series of mild to medium depth peels. We use glycolic, salicylic, lactic, mandelic and trichloroacetic acid peels here at Smileworks, and the type of peel will be carefully selected depending on your skin type, sensitivity and treatment need.

Skincare

We only use things that work at Smileworks, and we are passionate about skincare. Whilst it may feel nice to apply moisturiser out of shiny bottles, we know that this doesn’t usually do anything for you. We make sure that we assess your skin and use prescription-stregth ingredients in order to achieve the desired outcomes. We use a combination of vitamins, antioxidants, peptides and other agents to specifically target the concerns so that your skin becomes healthy, shiny and amazing, just like you.  Our skincare solutions can help treat acne, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, dry skin, oily skin and wrinkles.

 

 

Prescription strength skincare does not have to be expensive. We are versed in putting together skincare systems that work for you on your budget to achieve great things without breaking the bank.  Good skincare is for life. In order to achieve the results that you wish for, you will need to be committed. We always say, “you can have all your features in all the right places and be pretty, but as soon as you have great skin everyone starts telling you about it”. It’s true.

 

 

Obagi

Obagi is one of the leading medical skin care regimes currently available. It uses the most effective prescription-strength ingredients to repair, regenerate and transform your skin. This medical-grade skin protocol is prescribed by your Smileworks clinician and allows you to transform your skin at home with the at home series or in office with a range of Obagi peels.

 

 

Nu-Derm is the doctor-dispensed, prescription-strength skin care regime that you use yourself at home twice per day to transform the appearance of your skin. It can be supplemented with peel to achieve flawless skin.  It is particularly effective in treating sun damage, melasma, post-inflammatory pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, skin dullness and acne. Obagi products are designed to be used on a range of skin problems to achieve results.

 

 

Obagi can be used at home as a skin transformation kit, you can attend for your peels with us at the practice or you can do a combination of both for maximum effects. It requires patient commitment in order to achieve maximum effects, and is not a quick-fix but a journey to a new and improved skin.

Obagi NuDerm

 

At Smileworks we diagnose, plan and treat your problems in a scientific, medically appropriate and accurate way. We then deploy a regime that will lead to healthy and beautiful skin, based on research using scientifically proven and effective ingredients and doses.  So if you have acne, dry skin, sun damage or any other concern, you can be assured that dramatic improvements can be made with the right care.

 

 

What is Obagi NuDerm (pronounced oh-bah-jee)

 

Ok it sounds a bit strange but it’s the secret that celebrities have been using for years to maintain their perfect complexions.  I take most anti-aging products with a pinch of salt.  I’ve tried most of them, spent thousands upon thousands, and up until fairly recently would probably rub most things into my face if I thought they were going to be the ticket to eternal youth.  Most of what you see and hear on the TV is rubbish and the ingredients in face creams – no matter how expensive – are usually inert or ineffective in actually improving the health of your skin.

 

 

Let’s be honest, beautiful skin is just… beautiful.  There is nothing quite like it.  You can look buff and you can look pretty and have all your features in the right places but if your skin is covered in blemishes then that affects your confidence and makes you feel bad.

 

Obagi nuderm kit

 

 

Obagi Nu Derm is the only skincare system that will actually do what it promises to do and turn your skin into something wonderful.  Nu Derm = New Skin.  They had a team of scientists working round the clock to come up with that name and the team at Smileworks work round the clock to put their great research into practice.  Our resident beauty therapist is Hannah Taaffe and she works under the prescription of Dr Rowland-Warmann BSc BDS MSc Aes.Med. MJDF RCS (Eng) to administer our prescription-strength skincare products.

 

 

How Obagi NuDerm Works

 

Obagi is all about things that happen at a cellular level in the skin. Non-medical cosmetic companies have hijacked this sentiment and say their products ‘work at a cellular level but they don’t.  And these companies are not regulated like us medical people so can say pretty much whatever they want.  We cannot.  The active ingredients in the NuDerm products penetrate below the surface of the skin to transform the functions of the skin cells.  They correct damage and reveal healthy, young-looking skin.  That’s code for turning back time and making you look about 10 years younger.

 

 

Aging is dreadful.  You know it, I know it, everyone knows it.  But It’s also absolutely natural.  Yet every time someone tells me about growing old gracefully I want to walk into the Mersey.  Life takes its toll on facial features.  Daily sun exposure can mean that by the time you’re 40, you look 85.  The slowing of the turnover of cells in the skin (and general slowing of metabolic processes) means that more damaged cells sit around on your epidermis instead of your skin being the lean, mean organ it should be.

 

 

Moisturiser doesn’t help.  Moisturiser makes your skin reliant on external sources of comfort, instead of being its own boss.  For a long time I thought that spending £85 a pot on crushed up animal fat was a good idea.  Then along came Obagi Nu Derm.

 

What results can I expect?

 

Nu Derm gets rid of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin, skin laxity (saggy skin tissues), erythema (redness), sallowness (yellowish complexion), hyper pigmentation (discoloured skin) and acne (sound the bells!).  It’s an all-in-one bumper deal for your skin.

 

 

The active ingredients are Hydroquinone and Tretinoin (also called trans-retanoic acid or ATRA for short).  Hydroquinone stops melanocytes in the skin from producing any more pigment, thus acting as a skin-lightening agent.  Tretinoin is a Vitamin A based ingredient which combats acne and takes out any excess pigmentation already in the skin as well as acting to rejuvenate the skin.  These are used in conduction with exfoliating agents to lift off the top layer of the skin to reveal fresh layers underneath.

 

 

So why doesn’t everyone use Obagi?

 

This is pretty simple.  These are medical treatments that cost millions to develop making them not cheap and not affordable for everyone (hence the celebrities being big into Obagi) also you need to be highly committed to the treatment regimen – and many people are just not that organised.

 

 

You might think that spending £400 in one go on your skin is a lot for a NuDerm kit but really, it’s not.  Think about all those little pots at home in the bathroom gathering dust.  Then think about all the makeup you buy to cover all of your blemishes that you get from putting on moisturiser that doesn’t work.  Are we up to £400 yet?  Probably in as little as a couple of months!  It is – and take my word for this as someone with flawless skin – false economy.

 

 

The reason I stress commitment is that commitment to Nu Derm is an entirely different thing.  Those of you who are committed to your skin will read this and know.  You are the ones who have tried EVERYTHING in your quest for the perfect skin.  You want to change your life.  Nu Derm commitment is tough love.  Great skin is not a walk in the park.  It’s not a duck-shoot and it’s not plain sailing.  Nu Derm is a road paved with a strict skincare regime and looking flaky and sometimes breaking out to get you to where you need to be.

What’s the NuDerm Procedure like?

 

You think I’m joking about needing to ‘grow a pair’ for Nu Derm.  I started Nu Derm on 20th July 2013.  It was a great day. I put on all the lotions and potions.  I looked gorgeous the next day.  And the day after that.  Then I started to apply Exfoderm, the daily peel.  Still looking good.  Maybe a bit red.  Then I started to apply Tretinoin at night.

 

 

I Woke up looking like the evil lovechild of a lizard and a leprosy patient.  I have never actively considered myself to be hideous, but when you can peel your face  off in strips there comes a point when you consider staying in on a Friday night.   There was peeling.  Mainly around the mouth.  I’d wake up in the morning and apply and think I’d got over the peeling stage.  Then I’d take a bite out of my sandwich at lunch and my face would crack and peel.

 

 

Peeling from exfoderm

 

 

This may sound grim, but actually it’s not that bad.  There is peeling, yes.  There is itching.  But no pain.  After all, your skin is trying to shed like a happy Salamander and is trying its hardest to reveal good, new skin underneath.  It’s a process that lasts around 6 weeks and I wouldn’t say it is ever bad enough to limit your life.  You’re not on your own in this journey and your Obagi Prescriber (me) will see you all the way through this phase and tell you exactly why things are happening the way they are and what can be done to help.  Nu Derm is not about suffering.  But to resurface a road you gotta take off the top layer.

 

 

The Obagi NuDerm Journey

 

The first stage of Nu Derm is purposefully called “Out with the Old”.  This means your skin gets a bit of a shock to the system as the ingredients penetrate the deepest layers of your skin.  Dead cells are replaced and reactions such as itching, dryness, redness and peeling occur.  This means it is working.

 

 

Each skin cycle is 6 weeks long and by the time you get to the second, most of the peeling will subside.  You’ll look less red, less peel-y and your skin underneath will be shining through like a glorious gleaming beacon of loveliness.

 

 

 

The second stage is called “In with the New”.  This is when your skin starts producing healthy new cells and the cell turnover of your skin is faster.  The melanin producing cells in your skin are producing it more evenly (no more blotchy pigments) and the collagen and elastin in your skin is stimulated.  Your skin will look good after this phase.

 

 

The third stage is “Healthy Glow” six weeks later.  Your skin has a better blood flow due to better cell turnover and it is smooth, naturally hydrated (no more moisturiser) and more resilient.  It looks and acts younger and healthier and you will get ID’d buying a bottle of Lambrini at Sainsbury’s. After approximately 18-24 weeks of religiously applying Nu Derm, you come out of the other end and wonder what all the fuss over routines and peeling was about.  It’s a great feeling.  I don’t go through a single day without someone commenting on how great my skin looks.

 

 

 

 

I no longer wear moisturiser.  Or makeup.  Don’t need to.  It’s exhilarating and liberating.  The law tells me I must wear clothes, so that’s a concession I’m willing to make.  And if you don’t believe me, try it.  It’s life changing.

 

 

 

Obagi Nuderm Before and After

 

I’ve done it.  The First Officer does it.  Everyone around me is either doing Nu Derm, ordering Nu Derm or saving up for Nu Derm.  Nicole Kidman does it.  Jen-An does it.  Those ladies don’t look half bad either.

YOUR CLINICIANS

Obagi Pro-C Anti-oxidant

 

Anti-oxidants are the latest buzzword in skincare.  It’s not just a buzzword, it’s the real deal.  Antioxidants are nutrients and enzymes (minerals, vitamins and proteins) that can prevent or repair damage to the body from harmful external factors like pollution, radiation, sunshine and all sorts of other things.

 

So how does this damage happen?

Antioxidants work against these evil little blobs of ouchie called free radicals.  Sound like a bad punk band, right?  Well, Mr Free Radical and his merry friends cause cell oxidation, which is where cells break down and start doing things they shouldn’t.  This contributes to getting old and wrinkly and parts of your body not working as well as you advance in age.  Antioxidants are the knights in shining armour,  the off-switch for the amplifier, the razor to the mohawk: they stop cells being damaged by oxidation – they take one for the team and end up getting oxidised themselves.  Troopers.

 

This is why we need to constantly top up our antioxidants, be that via food or potions.  It’s that simple.  No red wine enemas or bathing in salt is going to help getting antioxidants in – it’s either down the hatch or rub it in.  On the passport of any typical antioxidant you will find usually a very exotic sounding name: lutein, selenium, beta-carotene or Vitamin A, C, E.  These are just a few.  Out of these, the most important for skin and skin care are selenium and Vitamins A, C and E.

 

 

How Antioxidants Work

They do an awful lot of things around the body but the major functions that we are concerned about for a more youthful looking skin are…

 

Reduce lines and wrinkles: Jackpot in any anti-aging skincare system!  Antioxidants are said to plump up the skin by increasing collagen synthesis,   and this is especially true of Vitamins A, C and E.  They also help skin repair and encourage cell and tissue growth. Along similar lines, some antioxidants have skin firming properties, such as Coenzyme Q10

 

Scar reduction: whilst this is very difficult to achieve unless you are using a patented scar treatment system such as Kelo-Cote (we stock this, too!), antioxidants have been shown to increase blood flow to scar tissue, making it softer and blend into the surrounding tissue more.  Anti-inflammation: antioxidants increase cell metabolism and help clear infected and irritated skin cells.  This plays a role in treating acne and evening out skin tone.

 

Sun Damage Repair: Sun is bad, mkay?  It causes damage to the cells and makes skin appear wrinkly and a bit like shoe leather.  Antioxidants can improve the appearance of sundamaged skin by improving blood flow and encourage the growth of new cells.  The long and the short of it is that antioxidants are great little things that repair and maintain a load of really important functions of the body.  And they are great for your skin.

 

 

 

Pro-C Serum

 

At Smileworks we only stock the finest products, so that you can be safe in the knowledge that they will do exactly what we say they will.  Obagi have a great serum called Pro-C, which comes in various concentrations depending on how dry, oily, sensitive or in need your skin is.  We advise you on which concentration of serum you need so that you are not left to randomly buy some product.  Most of the Obagi range is prescription only, so instead of supplying your lovely outer shell with lard, you’re supplying it with medicine that has scientific backing.  Pro-C does all the things that antioxidants are really good at, and if you are a geek and want to read up, there are studies that shows it does all of the following:

 

1. Increases collagen synthesis in the skin

2. Calms inflammation

3. Brightens skin

4. Retains moisture in the skin

5. Enhances any UV protection you put on top

6. Stabilises Vitamin E in the skin

It’s beauty in a bottle.

Obagi Pro-C Serum

Pro-C Serums are available for only £70 at Smileworks.
