How to Prevent the Signs of Ageing

Prevent Signs of Ageing

Learn How To Prevent the Signs of Ageing

Ageing starts earlier than you think. From your early 20s, your body starts producing less collagen, and your skin starts to lose its youthful glow. 

But it’s not all bad news. 

Whether you’ve started to notice fine lines around your eyes or your skin doesn’t quite glow like it used to, there are lots of things you can do to stop ageing in its tracks.

How To Keep Your Skin Looking Youthful and Healthy

Here are the top 6 ways you can prevent the signs of ageing, according to our skin experts here at b clinic.  

Use Sunscreen

It’s scary how many people brave damaging UV rays each day because they don’t apply adequate sunblock – and they’re looking older as a result. 

Always wear 50+ SPF sunscreen to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolouration, red veins and blotchiness. Sunscreen also helps slow down wrinkle formation and premature ageing of your skin.

Make sure you apply at least 30 minutes before you head outside. If you’re outside for an extended period, re-apply to keep your skin protected. Alongside sunblock, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and prevent excessive squinting that can cause crow’s feet and fine lines to appear around the eyes. 

If your skin is already showing signs of sun damage, medical-grade peels can be an effective way to tackle uneven skin tone, photodamaged skin, and fine lines. 

IPL Skin Rejuvenation can be a fast and effective treatment for more stubborn pigmentation like spider veins and freckles. Unlike many laser therapies, it also involves little to no downtime.

Moisturise

You’ll have heard this before, but it’s so important to keep your skin hydrated. A quality hydration cream like the Shield Day Moisturiser is a must-have for your skincare routine. Dry skin can make your complexion dull, but it also makes visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles look worse. 

Everything from the air conditioning at work to the water you rinse your face with is pulling moisture away from the skin. It’s a constant battle to keep your skin hydrated.

You can add a Humidify deep moisturising cream to your daily routine to protect against dehydration and boost skin integrity. A hyaluronic acid serum can also help to lock moisture into the skin and prevent dryness and visible signs of ageing. 

A Beauty Booster Treatment is a powerful anti-ageing treatment that uses micro injections of dermal filler for more intense hydration. It’s an excellent treatment to hydrate the skin and target problem areas where fine lines and wrinkles are beginning to form.

Combat Dullness

Cell turnover starts to slow down with age. Your skin doesn’t regenerate as fast as it once did, which can leave you with a dull complexion. 

Regular exfoliation is the best way to encourage cell renewal and keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. You can remove dry, dead, and dull skin so that new, healthy cells can come to the surface.

Using an at-home treatment like the triple acid Defy Exfoliation Cream can refresh the skin and help the active ingredients in your other skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin. 

If you want to see noticeable results faster, a microdermabrasion treatment is a great way to banish dull skin and get your glow back. It exfoliates the outer layers of skin to help prevent signs of ageing and create a smoother, vibrant complexion.

Sleep More

Getting enough sleep each night helps your skin stay fresh and youthful. When you’re sleeping, cell renewal is at its peak. Your body is repairing and renewing your skin. 

When you’re sleep-deprived, dark circles and bags under your eyes make you look years older. Also, getting enough sleep inoculates you from feeling down in the dumps for 24 hours – which means you’re more likely to have the energy to eat well and look after your skin.

If you’ve burned the candle at both ends for too long, your skin might need a pick-me-up to get its glow on again. Light Peels, Microdermabrasion, DermaPen skin needling, and our Beauty Booster Treatment can all improve your skin’s texture for a fresher, more radiant appearance.

Target Wrinkles Early

Most people start to notice fine lines and wrinkles in their 20s. The first area these annoying signs of ageing appear is usually around the eyes – crow’s feet. 

The best way to prevent crow’s feet is to avoid damage to the delicate skin around the eyes. Make sure you apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays, and wear sunglasses to prevent excessive squinting. 

Using a serum or cream containing retinal can help protect your skin from free radicals and prevent crow’s feet from forming. The Renaissance Night Cream contains both retinal and niacinamide to reverse the appearance of skin ageing and increase moisture retention.

If you’re already seeing lines appear, prevent them from deepening and becoming permanent with the latest Muscle Relaxant Treatments. Anti-wrinkle injections can eradicate wrinkles and achieve natural-looking results.

Keep Skin Full and Fresh

Healthy, young skin looks plump and smooth due to collagen and elastin. These essential proteins are the building blocks that provide structure for your face. 

But the body produces less and less collagen once you hit your mid-20s. This loss of skin structure and volume usually starts to show around the eyes, the cheeks, and the jawline. 

You can keep your skin looking plump and full for longer by using antioxidant ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, and vitamin C. Adding a Mellow Peptide Cream to your skincare routine can boost collagen production and improve skin integrity. 

To see faster results, ask our skin experts at b clinic about a Sublime skin tightening treatment. Sublime uses infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and encourage cell renewal. 

If you’ve started to notice hollowing or skin laxity, dermal filler treatments are a simple and effective way to restore lost volume. It’s great for nasolabial folds and your tear trough area where wrinkle lines and volume loss can become a problem.

eTwo Sublime & Sublative Treatments

eTwo Sublime & Sublative

The eTwo treatment is a powerful combination of Sublative and Sublime rejuvenation. Both procedures stimulate a natural healing response to combat a range of skin concerns. Get brighter, firmer, and more youthful skin with eTwo Sublime & Sublative at b clinic. 

Sublative Rejuvenation Treatment

 

Sublative rejuvenation uses radiofrequency energy to improve skin texture, tighten the pores, and reduce the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles and scarring. It’s a collagen-boosting treatment that targets the deeper layers of skin while leaving the top layers intact. 

How Does Sublative Work?

The Sublative treatment stimulates cell renewal and collagen production for natural rejuvenation. Bipolar radiofrequency energy is targeted to areas of the skin via the SublativeTM applicator.

This fractional delivery of RF energy causes micro-epidermal ablative injuries to the deeper tissue while minimising the damage to the epidermis. Sublative initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix to stimulate new collagen and elastin production. 

 

Tissue surrounding the matrix points is heat stimulated to accelerate the healing process, leading to a smoother, rejuvenated appearance of the skin. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial discolouration are reduced, and skin becomes smoother and firmer.

You can apply makeup 12 hours post-session to disguise any signs of treatment. 

Does a Sublative Treatment Hurt?

Sublative RF is not considered painful. During treatment, you may feel a warm, prickly sensation. Topical anaesthetic and cooling can be used to reduce any discomfort. After treatment, your skin may appear pink and feel similar to the effects of sunburn.

Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic Injectables


Cosmetic injectables are a fast and effective way to get a fresher and more youthful appearance. Whether you want to get rid of wrinkles, add definition to your features, or smooth your skin, cosmetic injectable treatments can help you achieve your desired results.

As we age, the body produces less collagen, skin starts to look tired, and we experience volume loss. Cosmetic injectables help reverse these common signs of ageing. You can be the best version of you. 

Book Appointment

Anti-Wrinkle

Reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevent new lines from forming. Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Australia. They provide fast and natural-looking results to help you achieve smoother skin and a more youthful look. 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers restore lost volume, add definition, and balance your facial features. Enhance your lips, nose, cheeks, and other areas of your face. These versatile cosmetic injections can refresh and rejuvenate with little to no downtime. 

Beauty Booster

Beauty Booster cosmetic injectable treatments smooth and restore for a complete facial rejuvenation. This advanced anti-ageing treatment uses micro injections of dermal filler. It provides an intensely hydrating and collagen-boosting effect. 

What Are Cosmetic Injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive treatments that rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful complexion. The two main types of cosmetic injectables are anti-wrinkle and dermal fillers. 

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a substance that relaxes the overactive facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a sugar substance that naturally occurs in the body. The hyaluronic acid replaces lost volume to plump out the skin and enhance the appearance of your facial features.

The two types of cosmetic injectables can be used as standalone treatments or combined to maximise results. 

How Do Cosmetic Injectables Work?

Most wrinkles are caused by the repetitive contraction of facial muscles, resulting in lines and creases on the skin’s surface. Anti-wrinkle injections use a muscle relaxant to temporarily block the nerve signals that cause over-active muscles to contract. With the muscle relaxed, the skin becomes smoother and rejuvenated. 

Dermal fillers work by restoring lost volume. As part of the ageing process, the body produces less collagen and elastin. Facial fat tissue starts to drop, and we also lose bone density. Dermal fillers restore this lost volume to address skin laxity, hollows, and other visible signs of ageing. 

How Long Do They Last?

The longevity of results from cosmetic injectables depends on a range of factors, including the type of cosmetic procedure and the area being treated. In addition, your metabolism, age, and lifestyle can impact how long your results will last. 

For anti-wrinkle injections, you can expect results to last for 3-4 months. Many people return to the clinic for a top-up treatment every 3 months to maintain their results. 

Dermal fillers typically last longer than other types of cosmetic injectables. You can expect results to last for 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler product used and the area treated. 

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Cosmetic injectables can be a fast and effective treatment for a number of facial areas. 

Anti-wrinkle injections can treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), mouth, and forehead. The muscle relaxant treatment can also treat teeth grinding (bruxism), excessive sweating, and slim the jawline for a more attractive V-shaped facial structure. 

Dermal fillers can restore lost volume, add definition, and create a more balanced facial structure. You can use dermal fillers to enhance the cheekbones, change the contour of the nose, or create a more defined jawline. Lip fillers can help you achieve a fuller pout and pillowy lips.

Sometimes a combination of cosmetic procedures is the best way to achieve your desired results. Your practitioner will be able to recommend a treatment plan during your free consultation at b clinic. 

When Can I See the Results?

You can expect fast results from cosmetic injectable procedures. For example, with anti-wrinkle injections, you’ll see noticeable effects around 3 days after the treatment. Optimal results are achieved around 14 days post-procedure. When you attend your complimentary treatment review, your clinician will provide a free top-up injection if required to achieve your desired results.

Dermal fillers provide a fast improvement. You’ll see results immediately after the injections. However, the filler product can take 14 days to settle and fully integrate with the tissue for the final results. Most dermal fillers also boost collagen production to achieve a lasting improvement to skin quality and skin elasticity. 

Do Cosmetic Injectables Hurt?

Cosmetic injectables are not considered painful. You may experience a pinching sensation and pressure during the injections, but this doesn’t last long and is uncomfortable rather than painful. 

Depending on the type of cosmetic procedure and the area being treated, your clinician may apply a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. The local anaesthetic is sometimes included with the dermal filler product. 

Is There Any Downtime?

One of the biggest advantages of cosmetic injectables is that there is little to no downtime. These cosmetic procedures can usually be performed in around 45 minutes, and you are free to go back to work and social activities immediately. 

With anti-wrinkle injections, you may experience mild redness and swelling around the injection sites for a few hours post-procedure. These effects can last for up to 24 hours for some people.

With dermal fillers, you can expect some mild swelling and bruising around the injection sites. This usually goes away within a few hours but can last for a couple of days post-procedure. 

Are Cosmetic Injectables Safe?

Cosmetic injectables are very safe when performed by a trained practitioner in a clinical setting. Anti-wrinkle injections have been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world for several decades. In that time, only a handful of serious adverse effects have been associated with cosmetic use. Dermal fillers also have an exemplary safety record. 

With any medical or cosmetic injection, it’s important to choose a highly trained and experienced practitioner.

Do I Need To Attend a Consultation?

Yes. You will need to attend a complimentary consultation before any injectable cosmetic treatment. Your clinician will assess the treatment area and ask about your desired outcomes to determine which procedure is the best option for you. 

This is also an opportunity to learn more about your practitioner. You can ask about their experience performing cosmetic injection procedures. Your clinician will answer any questions you have and make sure that you are prepared and feel confident about the treatment. 

Are Anti-wrinkle Injections or Fillers Better for Wrinkles?

The effectiveness of both procedures depends on the type of wrinkles you want to treat. Anti-wrinkle injections are generally more effective for frown lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead caused by overactive facial muscles. Some people also use anti-wrinkle injections as a preventative measure to stop wrinkles and lines from forming. 

Dermal fillers are typically more effective for deeper wrinkles and creases caused by volume loss. The nasolabial folds and marionette lines can benefit more from dermal fillers than anti-wrinkle injections. 

In many cases, a combination of injectable treatments can help you achieve a refreshed and youthful look. 

When Should I Start Getting Anti-wrinkle Injections?

There is no right or wrong age to start using anti-wrinkle injections. Most people seeking this cosmetic procedure are aged 30-55. But many people in their 20s start using cosmetic injectables as a preventative measure to keep wrinkles and lines from becoming static. The best way to find out if you could benefit from this treatment is to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced team of practitioners here at b clinic. 

Possible Risks and Complications

Cosmetic injectables don’t involve any of the risks associated with plastic surgery. But there are possible side effects and complications you should be aware of.

After anti-wrinkle injections, it’s common to experience some redness and tenderness around the injection sites. You may also notice mild swelling. These effects generally only last for up to 24 hours post-procedure. 

In rare cases, the muscle relaxant product can affect the nearby tissue and cause unwanted drooping of the eyebrow or eyelids. However, these effects are temporary and should resolve within a few weeks of treatment. 

After dermal fillers, it’s common to experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising around the injection sites. These effects can be concealed with makeup and should subside within 48 hours of treatment. 

More serious side effects are rare but can include the filler product migrating underneath the skin. There is also a risk of skin necrosis if the injection is placed incorrectly and blocks blood flow to the skin cells. As with all medical and cosmetic injections, there is also a small risk of infection.

The best way to reduce the risk of side effects is to choose a clinic with a team of experienced doctors and registered nurses. 

How Much Do Cosmetic Injectables Cost?

The cost of cosmetic injectables depends on the type of procedure and the area you want to treat. Anti-wrinkle injection treatments start from $260, with dermal fillers starting from $550 for 1ml of filler product.

PDO Threads

PDO Threads

PDO Threads are non-surgical skin tightening treatments that lift loose skin to help you achieve a fresher and younger look. There is minimal downtime, no need for any painful incisions or cuts, and none of the risks associated with a surgical facelift. 

PDO Thread Lifts target the deeper layers of the skin. Advanced polydioxanone protein is connected to helically moulded barbs that anchor the sagging tissue. When the thread is lifted, the skin appears tighter and firmer. The increase in blood flow and the boost to collagen synthesis add to the rejuvenation. Known as the non-surgical facelift, results from PDO Thread Lift treatments can last for up to 12 months.

Matrix PDO Threads are one of the most exciting and versatile treatments for skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles. Matrix PDO Threads use an absorbable polymer to stimulate fibroblasts at the cellular level, boosting natural collagen production to tighten and thicken the skin. The PDO Mono threads or double screw threads act as a support structure for your skin, enabling the body to create new stronger fibres as the polymer is absorbed. 

The procedure can treat visible signs of ageing and skin laxity on the face, neck, chest, arms, abdomen, buttocks and above the knees. Matrix PDO Threads results typically last for 6 – 12 months.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that tighten and firm the skin to address sagging and other visible signs of ageing. Both Matrix Threads and PDO Thread Lift treatments can provide a great improvement to skin texture. Skin appears tighter and smoother, with increased collagen and elastin production providing a long-lasting reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

How Do PDO Threads Work?

PDO Thread treatments are performed in clinic by our experienced doctor-led team. A topical numbing cream is applied to minimise any discomfort before a cannula is used to insert the threads into targeted areas of the skin. 

The PDO Thread material is made from polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that has been safely used in surgical procedures for decades. Once the thread has been strategically placed, your practitioner will tighten the threads to lift and rejuvenate the area. 

Results improve in the weeks following treatment, with the full effects visible around 8-12 weeks post-procedure. The collagen-boosting effect can last for up to 12 months, with skin appearing smoother, firmer, and fresher. 

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

The most common areas for PDO Thread treatments are around the eyes, lower face, cheeks, and neck. PDO Threads can be used to treat:

  • Forehead
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette Lines
  • Jawline
  • Neck

In some cases, PDO Threads can also be used on areas of the body to enhance skin texture and firmness. PDO Threads are often combined with other cosmetic treatments like Ultherapy and Anti-Wrinkle Injections to achieve a more dramatic anti-ageing enhancement.

When Will I See Results?

You can expect to see results from PDO Threads within 8-12 weeks of treatment. The threads are absorbed over time, but the collagen-stimulating effect produces anti-ageing results and enhanced skin texture for up to 12 months. Many clients return to the clinic for a follow-up PDO Threads treatment after one-year to maintain the skin tightening effect. 

What to Expect After PDO Threads?

There is little to no downtime following a PDO Thread treatment. You may experience some mild bruising and redness for the first couple of days post-treatment, but you can immediately return to work and social activities. Your practitioner may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and alcohol consumption for 24 hours after your procedure. 

It’s also advisable to avoid any other cosmetic procedures or dental treatments for around 5 days following PDO Threads.

How Long Does a PDO Threads Procedure Take?

Most treatments only take around 30 minutes. The duration of the appointment can vary depending on the area being treated. Unlike a traditional surgical facelift, there is no extended downtime or painful side effects. You can go back to your regular routine as soon as you leave the clinic. 

Are PDO Threads Painful?

PDO Thread treatments are not painful. But you may experience some discomfort as the threads are applied and pulled into place. A topical numbing cream is applied before treatment to minimise any discomfort. 

You may also experience some tenderness and mild bruising for the first couple of days after your treatment. 

What Age Should I Have PDO Threads?

This type of non-invasive cosmetic treatment is suitable for men and women that want to improve the appearance of sagging or crepey skin. Most clients are aged 30+ and want to achieve skin tightening results without the risks and downtime of a surgical facelift. 

If you have severe skin laxity, you may benefit more from a surgical facelift. Alternatively, your clinician may recommend combining PDO Threads with other non-invasive treatments.

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment is to book a free consultation with our medical team here at b clinic. 

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most people are delighted with the results of a single treatment. The skin thickening effect and healthy collagen synthesis are long-lasting. Your practitioner may recommend that you book a free consultation around 9 months after your initial procedure to see if a follow-up treatment is required.

Possible Risks and Complications

There are much fewer risks and side effects associated with PDO Threads than with a surgical facelift. However, as with all cosmetic injectables, there is a risk of temporary bruising, swelling, and discomfort around the treatment area.

Rare complications can include infection, bleeding, and unwanted dimpling on the skin’s surface. There is also a risk of the thread snapping in the days following the procedure.

It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner and choose a clinic with experienced medical staff to perform the PDO Threads treatment. 

How Much Do PDO Threads Cost?

The cost depends on the type of PDO Threads and the size of the area being treated. Matrix PDO Threads start at $250, and a PDO Thread Lift starts at $2400. Book a free consultation to find out if you are suitable for this procedure and receive a complimentary treatment plan based on an expert assessment of your skin concerns.

Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening treatments are designed to address sagging, wrinkles, and loose skin that results from ageing. We offer the most advanced Skin Tightening treatments to firm up your skin and restore your youthful appearance without the lengthy downtime and risks associated with going under the knife. 

Using ultrasound technology, our Skin Tightening treatments can combat sagging and loose skin for a firmer and younger-looking face, neck, and décolletage.

Results are long-lasting and leave your skin lifted and rejuvenated.
