Going under the knife is an option for some people to stop ageing process, but Dr Essaad Awad offers an alternative.

If you want to turn back the clock, without going under the knife, Pour Moi in Poole has a variety of anti-ageing treatments to help you roll back the years.

Owner Dr Esaad Awad said: “All our treatments are medically approved and tailored to suit your individual needs – we always keep an eye on our client’s progress to ensure they get the maximum benefits.”

The cosmetic clinic in Canford Cliffs now boasts the third generation of Thermage technology for a naturally younger looking appearance without surgery or needles. Through patented radio-frequency technology, it safely heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth. Thermage can be used on the face to help smooth and tighten the skin or other areas of the body to improve skin tone and texture. The effects continue to improve for up to six months following a single treatment and lasts for two years.

Sculptra – another popular anti-ageing treatment available at Pour Moi – is described as “the new liquid face lift”. This works by stimulating the build up of the body’s own collagen to sculpture the face to restore lost facial volume and lift the face which can last for more than a year.

Elastiderm is a range of products, one of which is Elastiderm d├ęcolletage which lightens and tones skin on the chest and neck. The two-step system is easy to apply and includes a skin lightening complex and wrinkle reducing lotion. Other products in the collection include Elastiderm Snap, an eye treatment to restore the appearance of youthful-looking eyes and the very latest addition Elastilash Eyelash to achieve thicker and fuller lashes.

Pour Moi also offers the highly acclaimed Obagi skincare range. The Obagi Nu-Derm System transforms your skin at a cellular level to correct the damage within your skin so that it looks and acts younger and healthier. In a recent clinical study involving 301 patients, it was proven to be two to three times more effective than other commonly prescribed skin care treatments.

Dr Awad can also prescribe one of a range of Professional C serums to help protect your skin with nature’s most powerful antioxidant therapy. There are four concentrations to suit a range of skin types. Simply apply a few drops to your face, neck, chest and around your eyes in the morning for maximum daily skin protection results. Prevention is often better than cure, and the Obagi-C Rx System can correct emerging signs of ageing before they become visible. It is the only system that offers prescription strength hydroquinone and potent vitamin C which penetrates all layers of the skin to protect against free radicals such as sun and smoke which accelerate the visible signs of the ageing process.

And finally, if you suffer with acne, you’re probably frustrated with trying countless treatments with little or no results. Now there is a prescription-strength solution that targets the primary causes of acne to clear your skin quickly and help you maintain a clear, healthy complexion. The Obagi Clenziderm is a breakthrough three-step solution that’s clinically proven to provide clearer, healthier skin in as little as two weeks.

If you would like to know more about the Obagi treatments available, an open evening will be held on November 7 from 5pm to 7pm at Pour Moi at 116 Canford Cliffs Road in Poole. For more information and to reserve a place, please call 01202 707345 or confirm your attendance here.
