How to reverse the visible signs of ageing
Here’s a sag, there’s a bag, everywhere a fine line… if you’re starting to notice more and more visible signs of ageing, you’re not alone.
Late nights, sun exposure, and stress can all take a toll on your skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop.
But it’s never too late or too early to reverse ageing skin. Today, we have more effective treatments than ever before to stop the clock and keep you looking your best.
In this guide, you’ll learn why skin ageing happens and what you can do to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful.
What Causes Ageing Skin?
Collagen is an essential building block for healthy skin. It’s a protein that keeps the skin springy, firm, and youthful. Unfortunately, from around 20 years of age, our bodies start producing 1% less collagen every year. As a result, our skin looks progressively more dry and dull.
This dryness makes the appearance of fine lines more noticeable. Your skin’s increasing lack of plumpness and elasticity leads to those dreaded wrinkles. It can also cause skin laxity around your jowls, eyes and neck.
Exposure to the sun’s powerful UV rays also plays a key role in skin ageing. The sun’s rays break down the collagen in the skin and accelerate the ageing process.
Are There Non-Surgical Ways To Reverse Skin Ageing?
There are many effective minimally invasive procedures to get smoother, younger-looking skin. We offer the latest advanced treatments designed to rejuvenate and plump those ageing signs out of existence.
To get the most benefit from these treatments, you should start taking more care of your skin in your 20s and 30s. Of course, you can still get great results at any age, but you’ll need fewer treatments to achieve your goals if you start earlier.
Let’s take a look at what you can do about ageing skin.
Get Rid of Age Spots and Pigmentation
Some of the first signs of ageing are skin discolourations, age spots and sunspots. Melasma (brown to grey patches) and broken capillaries soon follow.
One of the most effective treatments to reverse these signs of ageing is IPL Skin Rejuvenation (intense pulsed light). It uses bursts of laser energy to target the brown and red pigmentation on the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched.
Laser resurfacing can be an effective treatment for more severe pigmentation. PicoSure, photodynamic therapy, and Revlite lasers use powerful laser and light energy to destroy imperfections and leave you with clearer and more youthful skin.
Chemical peels can also be a great way to address pigmentation, poor skin texture and other visible signs of ageing. A chemical solution is applied to the face to remove the damaged and dead skin cells.
New skin replaces the older dull layers, and the age spots and pigmentation are removed, along with fine lines and superficial wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion is a popular add-on treatment that works well with chemical peels and laser therapies. It rejuvenates the skin by removing dead and damaged skin cells and encouraging cell renewal through exfoliation. There’s no downtime, and your skin will feel smoother and softer after a single session.
Fine Lines Just Ain’t That Fine
If you’re starting to develop crepey skin, forehead lines, crow’s feet or frown lines, anti-wrinkle injections can help you get smoother, younger-looking skin fast.
Most people develop wrinkles where the facial muscles are most active. So the eyes, mouth, and forehead are usually the first areas lines and wrinkles develop.
Anti-wrinkle injections cause the overactive muscles under the skin to relax, allowing the skin to become smoother and stopping lines from developing further. It’s a simple and fast treatment you can have in your lunch hour.
Another super-effective way to reverse ageing skin is DermaPen Skin Needling. Tiny needles are used to penetrate the skin and create micro-channels. This stimulates the body’s healing process and boosts collagen production. DermaPen Skin Needling can be combined with PRP for a powerful anti-ageing rejuvenation.
One of the best ways to improve skin condition and banish fine lines is a Beauty Booster Treatment. Tiny amounts of dermal filler are injected along the crease of your wrinkles and evenly across the skin for a transformative effect. A single session can provide your skin with intense hydration and boost elasticity for younger, smoother skin.
Plump It Up
In your 30s, moisture transfer from your dermis to the epidermis slows, and your skin’s fat cells start to shrink. This creates a characteristic loss of volume and hollowing around the eyes, lips, temples, cheeks, jaw, and nasolabial folds.
The solution? Try dermal fillers to turn back the clock.
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Australia. You can plump up the skin from within and restore lost volume to eliminate signs of ageing and re-contour the skin. It’s an excellent treatment for a range of skin concerns.
You can combine dermal fillers with other anti-ageing treatments, including a GLOW Facial Treatment. The growth factors and hormones used in a GLOW Facial stimulate cell renewal. Your skin gets everything it needs to regenerate for a more youthful appearance.
Stop Sagging Skin
Loss of tissue and fat creates telltale skin laxity, particularly around your jawline, neck, and eyes. As you age, these are three areas where fattening up is allowed!
At b clinic, we get great results with non-surgical treatments such as Ultherapy, PDO Threads, and Beauty Booster treatments.
Ultherapy is known as the best alternative to a surgical facelift. It’s a powerful skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and encourage new collagen and elastin growth. There’s no downtime, and results will get better and better for the next 12 months.
PDO Threads can lift and tighten loose and sagging skin without any incisions or cuts. The treatment uses an absorbable polymer to anchor sagging skin and stimulate cellular fibroblasts. It’s a powerful collage boosting treatment that tightens and thickens the skin.
Most skin sagging is caused by volume loss, so you can also get amazing results with a Beauty Booster treatment. This is often combined with strategically placed dermal filler injections to plump the skin and restore lost volume.
If you have moderate skin laxity around the eye area, eyelid surgery can achieve dramatic results that take years off your appearance.
