Ladies (and gentlemen), if even just thinking about wrinkles and pigmentation is ageing you, relax. While Hollywood will tell you that pain is gain and that you have to go under the knife to look younger, you don’t. There’s plenty of non-surgical options to freshen up your skin.
Don’t regret all those tanning sessions you spent with your friends when you were younger. It’s time to invest in treatments to minimise the damage (and that sun spot that’s a constant reminder of those summers!). We treat pigmentation, for example, with topical creams, oral medication, chemical peels and laser treatments.
No pain, lots of gain.
Choose your skin treatments.
There’s no need to put yourself through a painful recovery process. You have options. We’re going to go through four of the most common skin treatments.
1. Dermal Fillers
As you age, your skin naturally loses facial volume because less collagen is produced. Fat breaks down over time, too. This leads to the appearance of wrinkles, lines and creases. Injectable fillers can ‘fill in’ lines and supplement the volume. You’ll see visible results for up to a year, depending on your skin and the filler that’s used. Dermal fillers are injected in cheeks, lips, chin, jawline, forehead and under eyes. When injected into the cheeks, cheek filler enhances the gentle Ogee-curve, which is a symbol of youth.
2. Chemical Peels
If you’ve seen Sex and the City, don’t let Samantha’s experience put you off chemical peels. Pollution on your skin can lead to uneven pigmentation, broken capillaries and lines. A chemical peel accelerates the exfoliation process and removes dead skin cells, so your pores don’t clog. You can choose a series of light peels with minimal downtime or a mid-depth option. This is a conversation you can have with your skincare specialist. You’ll love how revived your skin looks and feels.
3. Pigmentation Laser
Hyperpigmentation occurs as you age, especially if you loved your tanning sessions when you were younger. Overexposure to sun can cause freckles, melasma, and age spots. While some people think freckles are cute, those patches certainly aren’t. There are a number of ways to treat pigmentation that don’t involve surgery. The most popular solutions are topical creams, oral medications, chemical peels, and laser treatments.
Most people assume that Btx is the only way to treat ageing skin. Now, you know different, however Btx is still worth mentioning. It’s a process that stops the movement of small, localised facial muscles by temporarily paralysing them (helping the wrinkles to flatten out). It’s a fast, non-surgical treatment that lasts for a few months. Target areas include between the brows, crow’s feet, forehead and around the mouth.
