Today’s patients are better informed than ever about facial rejuvenation. They know which specific imperfections they want to improve or correct and when. They research and decide which treatment they feel will help them. But one thing they often wonder is “Am I too young to start treatments?” and equally, “Have I left it too late?” So, let’s talk about it! When is too early and is there such a thing as too late?
b clinic offers a range of modern, non-surgical treatments and products that repair and rejuvenate. In consultation with our experts, you will explore and select the right treatment. Whether you’re looking to reverse ageing or just delay its onset, b clinic is here with the knowledge, tools and treatments to help you achieve your goals.
In our opinion, it’s always the right time to look and feel your best. We hope this timely advice is just what you’ve been looking for.
Do You Think You’re Ready for a Tweak in Your 20s?
First up, we want to be clear. If you are a teenager and thinking about anti-wrinkle injections – you are too young! Of course, we do have teenage clients – often because of acne or another non-age-related skin concerns.
If you are in your 20s, you probably know that, sadly, none of us can escape facial ageing, in part because, as The Better Health Channel says, “Skin is the first body part to show the signs of age.” That means it’s never too early to consider professional help. In Australia (and especially in Queensland) thanks to the sun, even if you’ve taken exemplary care of your skin by refraining from smoking, limiting sun exposure, and having a good daily skin care routine, signs of facial ageing can become problematic as early as your mid-20s with:
- Age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Skin dryness
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Thinning skin
Our treatments help combat natural skin ageing in younger clients. The improvements are subtle but noticeable, prompting comments such as, “You look great! Have you been on holiday?” rather than, “Oh, you had some work done.” b clinic offers a range of modern, non-surgical treatments and products that repair and rejuvenate skin. In consultation with our experts, you will explore and select the right one for you, your skin, and your timetable.
Laser skin resurfacing is a good choice for people seeking to improve both their skin’s tone and its texture. Laser treatments use quite incredible technology. Without getting too nerdy, a laser treatment stimulates your body’s natural healing powers to grow brand new skin cells where the laser has removed old, damaged ones.
The body really is amazing – it can literally grow brand new skin, it just needs a little nudge from a good laser to be encouraged to do so. The result is skin that looks healthy and glowing.
Is there anything lasers can’t do? Yes. Laser resurfacing is not recommended for the treatment of excessive or sagging skin.Other approaches are more productive for that.
It’s Always the Right Time, but What Is the Best Laser Skin Treatment?
Although there are exceptions, it’s always the right time for laser skin rejuvenation treatments. Depending on the severity of the problem and a client’s goals, b clinic offers a wide range of laser skin treatments with the most up-to-date equipment:
ABLATIVE LASERS – combat visible signs of facial ageing by removing the epidermis (the thin, outer layer of skin) and heating the dermis (underlying skin), thus, stimulating collagen production to improve skin texture and firmness.
After healing, the treated area appears smoother and tighter. b clinic is equipped with a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser and an erbium laser to ensure optimal treatment choices for every client.
NON-ABLATIVE LASERS – sometimes referred to as light-source therapy, these lasers represent a meaningful advancement in the treatment of facial ageing. Unlike an ablative laser, our non-ablative lasersbypass the outer layers of the skin to do their job. They do their work by creating micro-wounds just beneath the surface of the skin.
Non-ablative lasers are less aggressive than ablative lasers, with a shorter recovery time and shorter duration of benefits. If you are undergoing non-ablative treatment or fractional Er:YAG laser resurfacing, you’ll likely need 1 to 3 treatments scheduled over weeks or months to get the results you’re looking for.
In addition to this, there are also fractional and non-fractional versions of each. But the good news is this – you don’t need to know all this technical detail (unless you really want to). Our laser experts will assess your concern and recommend the perfect treatment just for you! The one thing to remember is that laser technology is advancing all the time and the results just keep getting better. We are constantly buying the latest laser technology to ensure we can achieve the best results for our beloved clients.
Non-Ablative Lasers and a Combination Treatment for Every Age
Your skin is as unique as you are. For this reason, b clinic is prepared to address your facial rejuvenation needs with a trio of treatments featuring non-ablative lasers. Each has its own special benefit:
- ResurFX This efficient technique is fast and easy with only light swelling and redness that dissipates over 1–3 days. A true advancement in laser technology ResurFx requires only a single pass over the skin to promote long-lasting facial rejuvenation of the skin tone and texture.
- PicoSure is our laser of choice for clients who want to target excess melanin and unwanted pigmentation. The PicoSure is a true multi-tasker, attacking pigmentation problems while simultaneously hydrating and softening skin. This laser is especially effective, gentle, and useful for removing facial tattoos.
- IPL PhotoFractional treatments are the latest in a trend called bundling. In this instance, we combine Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser treatment with ResurFx to treat a variety of concerns in a single session. IPL technology uses light wavelengths to target superficial blood vessels, broken capillaries, and dark spots. Over time, broken blood vessels close down and disappear, and pigment damage lightens. The result is skin that is bright, clear, and even-toned.
It’s Never Too Late for Facial Rejuvenation
b clinic welcomes clients of all ages who want to improve their complexion and skin. Some want to correct a perennially troubling forehead line. Others want to reclaim bright, glowing skin. In short, everyone is eager to put their best face forward, regardless of chronological age. They want their outer appearance to match their inner vigour.
b clinic believes beauty is truly ageless. We have developed techniques to address those forehead lines and dull skin, as well as more advanced treatments for correcting:
- Facial hollowing
- Droopy eyes
- Uneven skin texture
- Aged appearance
In addition to the laser treatments above, b clinic relies on cosmetic injectablesto treat and rejuvenate the tear troughs and the mid-face by treating the correct deep fat pad compartments and by strengthening the loose ligaments. Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injects, known collectively as cosmetic injectables, are an ideal way to redefine facial contours. One new way injectables are being used is in reshaping noses without surgery. Ultimately, the goal is to enhance the shape of the face or a facial feature and create a more refreshed appearance.
NOW is the Time to Develop Your Maintenance Plan
The once-and-done answer to beauty hasn’t been invented yet. For this reason, b clinic recommends that clients create a maintenance plan to preserve the benefits they’ve worked so hard to achieve. Maintenance includes both in-clinic treatments and at-home care.
For example, a regular course of dermal fillers can help you maintain facial youth without a noticeable dramatic change. Other useful maintenance options include:
- Anti-wrinkle injections
- PDO threads
- PRP treatments
- Skin treatments
Our team can help you develop a long-term, seasonal approach to maximising the beauty you have.
