Everyone desires to have a healthy skin free of blemishes, dull skin tone and fine lines. However, when we age the skin shows its first signs in form of dullness, dryness and sagging. Fine lines and wrinkles appear making us look older. Ageing is a natural process but there are other factors such as biological, environmental, stress, unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle which cause ageing earlier than expected.
To combat the signs of ageing there are various anti-aging treatments that are non-invasive as well as effective. Here is a rundown to some of them.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
It is the most sought-after cosmetic treatment producing a clear, healthy and beautiful complexion. It can combat a variety of skin issues such as blemishes, wrinkles, blotchy skin, broken capillaries, rosacea, freckles, age spots and skin discolouration to give a radiant complexion. The IPL laser machine is used which imparts non-coherent pulsed laser light onto the treatment area which stimulates the production of elastin and collagen while constricts the blood vessels to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and redness. The procedure is non-invasive and there is no downtime.
The treatment session takes about 30 minutes to complete and can be done in lunch hours so it is also known as luncheon procedure. However, you would need 3-4 treatment sessions to get effective results.
Anti Ageing Injections
Anti-ageing injections are used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to offer a younger and more rejuvenated look. These injections are most often used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, lip lines and lower face treatment to improve jawline and appearance of a double chin. Various dermatology clinics in Australia offer this anti ageing treatment. The anti-wrinkle injections in Melbourne used have botulinum toxin more commonly known as Botox. This toxin when injected into the skin temporary blocks the transition of chemical messages sent from the brain to muscles to contract, thereby reducing the wrinkles. Many people also take lip injections in Melbourne to get fuller and sensual lips as well as reduce lipstick lines.
It is too a non-invasive treatment method to reduce the signs of ageing. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to gently exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry and dead skin to reveal a smoother and radiant skin underneath. The process works in two parts, first, a handheld device with tiny crystals is used to exfoliate the surface of the skin and then a vacuum sucks all the dead cells and debris away. Microdermabrasion improves the blood and lymphatic circulation deep in the skin improving the internal health of the skin, unclogs and decreases pore size to combat acne and inflammation and enhances the product efficacy, which means that if you are treating your skin for certain skin conditions, the skin will be more receptive to the product.
A series of 5-8 sessions spaced between a week or two are done to get the desired results. However, the treatment sessions required may differ according to the condition to be treated and what results you are looking for.
The above mentioned are some of the effective anti-ageing treatments you can undertake.
