How to get the best out of your anti-ageing treatments and what role does your skin play…

The number one question I am asked is “what can I do to look fresher? I feel like I look tired and my skin looks dull”, if I had a dollar for every time I have heard this I could most likely retire!

Of course we all love the immediate results we can achieve with injectable treatments and they certainly play an important part of any anti-ageing regime. However, sometimes the obvious things can easily be overlooked or ignored. Our skin for example is the largest organ in our body and we have the same skin for a lifetime! Healthy, vibrant and fresh looking skin can literally take years off our appearance. Skin care and skin maintenance treatments should definitely be a priority in any anti-ageing treatment plan.

Best long term anti-ageing results are achieved through a consistent combination approach which should ideally include the following;

  • Active anti-ageing skin care.
  • Prescription skin care.
  • Sun protection.
  • Skin treatments to promote collagen production and repair sun damaged skin.
  • Muscle relaxants and dermal fillers are the icing on the cake!

Injectable treatments work and last so much better when the skin is healthy and in optimal condition.

Top tips to achieve and maintain fresh, vibrant, youthful skin;

  • Sunscreen with an SPF 50.

Believe it or not sun protection is by far the most important, easiest and cheapest anti-ageing product available

  • A daily balanced skin care diet.

Products that contain high quality active anti-ageing ingredients, such as A.H.A (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), B.H.A (Beta Hydroxy Acid) Salicylic Acid (For problematic acne prone skin types), Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Antioxidants and nutrients.

  • Prescription Vitamin A (Retinol)

This is stronger than over the counter skin care products and promotes cellular turn over and collagen production and is used in conjunction with your existing skin care regime. Consultation with your medical treatment provider is required before purchase of prescription Vitamin A.

  • Prescription pigment fading cream.

Also stronger than over the counter pigment fading creams and works by reducing the production of pigmentation in the deeper layers of skin. Consultation with your medical treatment provider is required before purchase of prescription pigment fading cream.

  • Medical grade skin peels.

Skin peels speed up cell turnover revealing fresh new healthy skin, aid in the treatment of acne, scarring, sun damage and pigmentation, promote collagen production and generally improve skin tone, texture and clarity

  • Dermapen skin needling.

Micro needles penetrate the dermal layer of skin where all the good things happen, promotes collagen and elastin production and improves skin firmness, texture and clarity. Softens fine lines, refines pores, scarring and uneven skin texture. 

  • Fractional Laser.

Laser treats all of the above and more! Promotes collagen and elastin production, softens lines and firms the skin, reduces redness and sun damage, refines pores and improves scarring.

  • Muscle relaxants.

Prevent and soften lines in facial areas such as frown, forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes.

  • Dermal fillers.

Restore volume and facial contours, soften fine and deep lines and folds, improve lip shape and volume, hydrate skin and improve skin texture.

 

Sadly, there is not just one thing that treats or improves everything…the combination of good daily skin care habits, consistent skin treatments and subtle use of muscle relaxants and dermal fillers with an experienced treatment provider all work cohesively to achieve long lasting healthy, fresh and vibrant looking skin.
