Remember: information = empowerment
If you’re in your 20’s, there is much you can do, and continue to do, to slow skin ageing. If your skin is healthy, it should have a translucent glow as cells from the dermis (lower layer) find their way up through the epidermis and exfoliate naturally. The skin, supported by elastin and collagen in the dermis, should also be elastic and full, with a smooth texture, few wrinkles and a small pore size on the face.
This not your generation? Perhaps you’re two or three decades ahead? Is your skin loose and wrinkled, showing signs of sunspots, freckles or other pigmentation? Well, you’ve probably come from a generation in which being in the sun (with minimal screening) was considered “healthy”, where the hazards of smoking and other drugs were not as widely documented and information about a healthy diet with lots of water, wasn’t so readily available.
How YOU respond to the march of time will also be influenced by genetics and loss of hormones such as oestrogen and testosterone which are influential in producing collagen. Hence wrinkles and lines start to appear around eyes and forehead due to collagen loss, pores are larger and cells coming up from the dermis are coarser and no longer naturally exfoliate at the same rate, leaving a dull, flat sometimes sallow complexion.
So how can Laser Clinics Australia help?
Remembering that attention to diet, exercise and sun protection is essential to maintain on-going success of treatments, our trained staff can, for example, use injectables ( * see article on anti-wrinkle injections) to fill sagging from collagen loss. Laser Clinics Australia can also augment lips where collagen loss has made them thinner. Pigmentation, age and liver spots, broken capillaries, bags under the eyes and sagging eyelids can all be treated. The degree of success may reflect the degree of damage to the skin but we are proud to have achieved some amazing results.
