‘How do I look younger?’ This is one of the biggest questions we get from our clients. Achieving more youthful skin is a goal many of us share after reaching a certain age. Skin starts to sag, wrinkles begin to show, and our appearance just doesn’t seem as bright as it once did.
Thankfully, we now have an array of non-invasive aesthetic treatments that will help us achieve a healthier, younger looking complexion without going under the knife.
Here are some of our top treatments to help you look younger without going under the knife:
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Containing botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), which is a form of muscle relaxant, anti-wrinkle injections work to relax and weaken the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles and frown lines.
When treated regularly, anti-wrinkle injections can help keep those pesky lines and wrinkles at bay. They can also help to prevent lines from forming if you act proactively. Results can be further enhanced by combining the injections with supporting skin tightening and rejuvenating treatments.
Another top treatment to look younger is dermal filler. Dermal filler injections reintroduces hyaluronic acid into the skin to restore lost volume and enhance certain features. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that stabilises its structure, boosts hydration and improves elasticity.
When injected into the skin, dermal filler can fill facial lines, wrinkles and deep folds, reduce tired and sagging skin under the eyes, smooth creping skin around the lips, and plump certain areas such as lips and cheeks. You can also use the treatment to contour your face, refine the chin and to improve the appearance of scars.
When we are young, we have plenty of collagen to provide support and strength, however, with age and exposure to environmental factors such as UV exposure, we lose collagen and our skin becomes lax, resulting in jowls, deep lines and thinner skin. Skin tightening treatments such as Thermage® and Ultraformer III can help to combat this skin laxity.
Ultraformer III utilises micro and macro focused ultrasound (MMFU) technology to precisely target multiple deeper layers of the skin, including the SMAS layer in the skin – the layer that surgeons pull back when doing a face lift – causing new collagen stimulation and providing long-term tightening of the skin.
Thermage®, on the other hand, uses radio frequency to gently heat the deep dermis layer of skin responsible for collagen production. It works to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production, resulting in a smoother, firmer and more youthful complexion. Both are highly effective treatments for lifting and tightening the skin.
