Texture, tone, redness, lax, dry or dull skin, enlarged pores, acne, hyperpigmentation, lines, wrinkles…the list of common skin concerns goes on and it’s not only women who have skin concerns, men do to. Do you prioritise smoothing lines, improving skin quality, refining pores, balancing tone, improving texture, diffusing redness, scar reduction, or.…? When you’re confronted with a plethora of products and treatments promising revitalised, younger looking skin, where do you start? Every face is unique, and as such, every skin care solution must be customised to yield the best results.
Our skin is the largest organ of our body so it pays to care for and nourish it, not only to promote youthfulness, but also for our health and protection against external pollutants. We discuss the top 8 skin concerns we see in clinic and the most popular treatment options.
TOP SKIN CONCERNS & SOLUTIONS
LINES & WRINKLES
Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of ageing, however they can appear earlier than we would typically expect due to sun damage, smoking or other lifestyle factors.
A quality skin care regime with active ingredients, personalised to your type of skin, will give your skin the nourishment it needs. Muscle relaxing injections are a popular treatment to minimise lines and wrinkles by stabilising the muscles that cause the skin to crease.
Another treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing response to strengthen and smooth skin is Secret Micro Needling RF. This treatment combines micro needling with radio frequency to promote skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
Laser Genesis is an innovative laser technology that treats a range of skin conditions, including lines and wrinkles, with the benefit of no downtime.
LOSS OF VOLUME
We associate youthfulness with plump, radiant skin. Over time, as volume is lost from the face, it can add years to our appearance.
For its instantaneous effect, dermal fillers are one of the top treatments for loss of volume. Dermal fillers, when done by a highly experience cosmetic doctor, can be used to enhance natural beauty, contour the face and bring back youthfulness with added volume.
PRP Treatment (also referred to as the vampire facial) can be used to restore volume as well as improve the appearance of the skin. The treatment uses growth factors to stimulate tissue repair.
Secret Micro Needling RF offers advanced skin rejuvenation therapy, restoring fullness by triggering collagen production and tissue rejuvenation.
LAX, SAGGING SKIN
With age comes diminishing collagen and elastin in our skin, and hence, sagging, lax skin, including eyelids. Hooded or droopy eyelids can make it difficult to apply makeup and can give us a tired appearance.
Plexr non-surgical blepharoplasty is a revolutionary treatment to tighten and lift eyelids, without the need for a surgical procedure, thus avoiding the risks, downtime and cost associated with surgery.
Secret Micro Needling RF and PRP treatment can be used to tighten and plump facial skin. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to areas that have developed lax appearance.
DULL & DRY SKIN
Overly harsh cleansers, wind and cold can wreak havoc on our skin, making it look and feel dry and dull.
Appearance Clinic Australia haver a comprehensive range of high-performance facials, peels and skin treatments to address dull and dry skin. Vitamin C treatment can be used to invigorate and nourish skin.
Dermablading can be used to gently remove dead skin cells and vellus hairs to unveil radiant, beautifully smooth skin.
HYPERPIGMENTATION, FRECKLES AND AGE SPOTS
Pigmentation can have an ageing effect, similar to lines and wrinkles. Sun damage and hormones are key contributors to pigmentation concerns.
Professional dermal peels are typically the first step. Laser treatment may be used as an additional treatment if required. Depending on your skin condition and concern, a complete pigment peel could be an option. It’s important to speak with an experienced skin therapist before attempting any type of pigmentation correction.
Acne is one of the most emotionally impacting skin concerns we treat. Treating acne promptly reduces the risk of scarring.
We have a range of treatments available to treat acne, including peels, Laser Genesis, LED light therapy, prescriptive facials and topical active skin care. The best way to treat active acne is to have a complimentary consultation with our expert skin therapist who has over 20 years experience and specialises in treating acne. She will analyse your skin and recommend a customised treatment plan, tailored specifically to you.
TEXTURE IRREGULARITIES, SCARRING OR ENLARGED PORES
Irregular texture, acne scars that can be raised or depressed and enlarged pores are visible skin concerns that can be treated with the right solution.
Secret Micro Needling RF can be used to reduce the appearance of scars, improve texture and refine pores. Peels are ideal for unclogging and minimising pores, and rejuvenating texture. Laser Genesis can also be used to minimise pores and improve texture and scarring.
Facial flushing is normal after exercise or emotion such as embarrassment. Persistent facial redness can be caused by sun damage, rosacea, acne, eczema or other medical conditions. It’s important to have facial redness assessed by a qualified skin professional.
For facial redness not associated with serious medical conditions, treatments such as LED light therapy and Laser Genesis can be used to diffuse redness.
