What happens to our skin as we age?
Ageing is an inevitable part of life and should be something we embrace and celebrate. We believe beauty stems from the inside out, but we also want our exterior to reflect how we feel within.
As we age, structures beneath the surface of our skin, including collagen, elastin, fat, bones, and ligaments, start to deteriorate. All these contribute to sagging, wrinkles and lack of elasticity that will worsen over time.
Your skin will also gradually become thinner and lose its ability to retain moisture, which will result in a more dry, crepey and dull appearance.
While these changes are a natural human phenomenon, factors such as smoking, alcohol and sun exposure can significantly speed up the ageing process.
How can I treat my ageing skin?
Anti-ageing treatments should focus on two main aspects: Replacing volume loss and improving skin laxity (i.e. loose skin).
Each person’s skin will age differently. Some might experience more wrinkled skin due to collagen loss, while others might observe more sunkenness due to fat loss. A proper diagnosis will help determine the most effective anti-ageing treatment solution for you.
- Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a popular anti-ageing treatment to replace facial volume, fill out wrinkles and improve the hydration levels within the skin.
Microneedling, or otherwise known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), stimulates new tissue formation and encourages collagen remodelling.
- HIFU (Ultherapy / Ultraformer)
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) uses concentrated ultrasound energy to tighten and sculpt your face and neck.
- Thermage FLX
Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin, causing contraction and tightening.
- Thread Lifts
Thread Lift treatments can lift sagging skin by introducing soft sutures into the skin tissue to hold it in place and stimulate renewal.
In addition, we always recommend incorporating daily cosmeceutical skincare and monthly facials and peels to help bolster and maintain your results.
What results can I expect from anti-ageing treatments?
Depending on your treatment, there should be an improvement in skin texture, laxity and elasticity from as soon as 4-8 weeks. Anti-ageing treatments do require commitment and consistency as it is an ongoing maintenance process. During your free consultation, we will be able to recommend a suitable treatment plan to help achieve your desired results.
