Let’s face it. We’re all a little scared of ageing!
As children our skin recovered quickly from bumps and bruises and kept itself sufficiently hydrated.
As teenagers we may have suffered from a break out or two but our skin was still, soft, supple and plump and would heal in record time.
In our 20’s despite all the partying and late nights skin would still stay smooth, firm and wrinkle-free, all thanks to abundant levels of collagen and elastin.
However as we enter our 30s, our skin’s natural defense mechanisms (and collagen) start to break down, making it more vulnerable to external factors such as sunlight and pollution, emotional strain and occasional sleeplessness.
Bad habits, such as smoking and not using SPF protection, also affect how our skin ages. And one of the final most important factors? Genetics! Take a look at your Mum for a peek into your skin-care future.
All the these factors can cause the dreaded aging process with the most noticeable signs being
Beauty companies thrive on this fear and create potions, creams and serums that promise to stop the signs of ageing or ‘turn back time’ and all they do is empty our pockets and leave us with a bathroom cupboard full of unused bottles and tubes.
Plastic surgery can offer a solution but most of the time it’s quite painful, can take weeks to recover and could leave you with a face you don’t recognize.
At The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic we offer Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Reduction which are a safe and extremely effective way to turn back time that can last between 3-9months, are virtually pain free and take as little as 20 minutes to an hour to perform. Many people go straight back to normal daily life afterwards, although if a large area is treated it can take a few hours or even a day or two to recover.
What is a Dermal Filler?
Dermal Fillers work by plumping up the skin, making it firmer and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. It can also provide hydration. Restylane is the only Dermal Filler The Australian Laser and Skin use and is the safest, most effective dermal filler used today. It’s perfect to plump out areas of the face such as lips and cheeks that have lost their fullness and hydration.
What is Wrinkle Reduction?
Wrinkle Reduction is when Botox is injected into a particular area of the body relaxing the underlying muscles, causing the skin to smooth out. It blocks the nerve signals that make muscles contract. The most popular Botox treatments are forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet. It can also been used for muscle spasms and excessive sweating.
We offer both anti ageing treatments at The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic and we have clinics all over Melbourne. Call 1300 786 166 for your complimentary consultation.
