Recommended Treatments for Ageing

Because everybody wants to look younger, for longer, sooner…

Ageing is a fact of life, looking your age is not. Your skin changes with age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Years of sun tanning or being out in the sunlight for long periods of time may lead to wrinkles, dryness and age spots.

The great news is that it is never too late to benefit from lifestyle changes and skin workout treatments that can help repair some of the damage. New, non-invasive treatments are now available to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, even out skin tone and restore your skin’s youthful fullness.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

Ageing causes skin to sag and loosen over time largely due to the gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. Our bodies just can’t keep up with production as we age. There are 4 basic methods to tighten the skin and help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sagging, short of getting invasive plastic surgery. These are:

Skin Peels
IPL(Intense Pulsed Light)

Skin needling
LED (Light-Emitting Diode)

Skin peels use chemicals and treatment creams to affect the skin. They are not very invasive solutions, are easily accessible and have little to no down time. They are usually the first option tried by those looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The downside is that the results might be less pronounced than other methods because they have only a superficial reach. 

 IPL is the use of broad-spectrum light to target large areas of skin. These treatments are highly-targeted and focus on thickening collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Because IPL can send out more than one wavelength of pulsating light, it can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time. 

 Skin needling uses tiny needles to stimulate the production of your natural collagen. This in turn creates smoother, healthier skin. It can also reduce acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and blackheads.

 LED Therapy is also a light therapy, but uses different and specific wavelengths depending on your skin concern. LED is a more gentle than IPL, and is thus better for targeting more superficial skin concners, such as acne.

Benefits of Skin Tightening

If you are concerned that your skin is getting looser or if you’ve started to notice fine lines accumulating where they weren’t before, skin tightening is a non-invasive and easy option to consider. 

 Benefits are:

  • Improved Skin Tone and Elasticity – Builds those collagen stores 
  • Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles – Say goodbye to lines even in those hard to reach areas like around the eyes and lips
  • Natural Looking Results – Unlike with surgeries, skin tightening doesn’t force the skin to move in unnatural ways; it simply triggers your natural rejuvenation processes
  • No Downtime – Skin tightening is far less uncomfortable and invasive than surgery, so you can get back to your life asap
  • Immediate Results That Last – You can see results even after just one treatment, and those results actually last

SKIN NEEDLING 45min - 299.00

Skin needling stimulates the production of your collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. It is a powerful treatment that uses fine needles to create micro punctures which stimulate a wound healing response. By triggering this response, the skin releases growth factors that stimulate collagen and elastin production. This targets fine lines and wrinkles and repairs damaged cells.

Skin needling visibly reduces acne scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR SKIN NEEDLING

What is Dermapen™ treatment?
Dermapen is an advanced skin needling technique. Dermapen treatments effectively improve skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and a variety of scars. This technology uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin. When moved across the surface of your skin it stimulates natural collagen production and creates fine channels within the skin. These channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layers of the skin.

Is Dermapen™ Painful?
Dermapen uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. Minimum needle depths are basically painless, and for depths over 0.5mm a mild topical anaesthetic may be applied by the client prior to visiting the salon. After the treatment the face will show visible redness but there is no downtime and you can easily cover with a breathable foundation and continue with your daily activities.

How does Dermapen™ Skin needling work?
The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue such as acne scarring and wrinkles and replaces it with new fresh healthy collagen. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers a whole cascade of events that result in new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin down the line. A great treatment for all skin types especially clients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.

Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Dermapen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 20 minutes for the entire face and neck and up to 60 minutes for the body depending on the size of the problem area. This is a great treatment for stretch marks and sagging/crepey skin. During the treatment, the practitioner gently moves the DermaPen over the client’s skin to create miniscule sub-cutaneous channels. This is perceived by the body as a “mini wound” which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which is all part of the healing process. This new fresh collagen remodels over time and thus one can expect moderate skin tightening of the treated area down the line. Sagging skin, stretch marks, pores and acne scars are all improved upon.
When should one start Dermapen™ Skin Needling for anti-ageing?

Dermapen Skin Needling are more effective than ever and treatments should be started sooner when the skin has a much greater ability to rejuvenate. If wrinkles are left and they become ingrained and scar like they are much more difficult to treat. It is also a great idea to start treatments to prevent the dreaded sagging that takes place with ageing around the brow, jawline and neck.

Is Dermapen Skin Needling safe?
The needle only penetrates through the epidermis and does not remove it thus the skin’s natural protective barrier remains intact. The pierced epidermis rapidly heals in a matter of hours. After the procedure, the treated skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. Breathable make up can be worn immediately after the treatment. The treatment is therefore not only very effective but also very safe with very few (to no) side effects or complications.

How many Dermapen treatments do I need?
Everyone’s skin is different so we do recommend coming in for a consultation to see if this is the right treatment for you. Benefits of the Dermapen can be seen after just one treatment. It is recommended that 3- 5 treatments, spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart, are performed for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed such as acne scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results.

As a general guide line we recommend the following:
Rejuvenation: 4 -6 treatments (4 weeks apart) Acne Scarring: 4-6 Treatments (6 weeks apart)

Post Treatment Care
A good skin care regime is paramount in getting great results. Therefore in-between and post Dermapen treatments ensure to keep you skin hydrated and protected, we recommend using a day and night cream to repair and nourish your skin as well as a high SPF sunblock during the day to ensure you are protected against harmful UVA and UVB rays throughout the day.
Your therapist will recommend the appropriate aftercare for your skin to reach optimum results.

WRINKLE REDUCTION INJECTABLES/FILLERS

This is a simple process whereby a muscle-relaxing solution is placed via a series of small injections into individual muscles in an area containing wrinkles. This prevents the muscles from making unnecessary and undesirable facial expressions and further creasing the skin. Wrinkle injections won’t radically change your appearance or make you look as though you’ve had a facelift and they will not ‘freeze’ facial expressions – they just soften the area, making you appear younger and more refreshed.
