Anti-ageing – it’s not all about wrinkles

Often when we think about anti-ageing or Ageing Slowly as we call it at Skin Essentials, the focus is on wrinkles, whether reversing the appearance and depth of ones already there or preventing them in the first place.

But there is so much more to anti-ageing than wrinkle management!

I would even go so far as to say that lines and wrinkles are not the most visibly ageing factor I see on skin.

Here are my top three ‘stealth-agers’ that you need to know about:

  • If I had to choose (not that I want to) between eradicating lines or eradicating dullness I would opt for the second choice every time.

Every skin looks more youthful, vital and beautiful when it is radiant, regardless of whether there are lines and wrinkles present or not. My top treatment choice for restoring radiance is with customised peels. Read about them here.

For an added boost, LED light therapy is a gentle yet powerful way to stimulate skin’s natural processes and reveal radiance.

  • Another factor that subtly adds to the visible ageing of our faces is colour anomalies such as visible red veins or capillaries and brown sun spots.

The good news is that these can be treated very quickly and easily with diathermy or cryotherapy to restore an even complexion.

  • Finally in my trio of silent agers is the down-turning of the corners of the lips that occurs so gradually with natural ageing that we are hardly aware of it, but restoring the volume in this area with needle-free hyaluronic acid filler can have a huge effect on the overall appearance of the face – without looking like you have had anything done.

See an example from one of our hydroporation clients in the photo below.

And of course we can tighten skin and reduce lines and wrinkles with my personal favourite treatment – bio-therapeutic needling.

An absolute MUST if you want to prevent or rewind lines, and who doesn’t?

Each individual will likely need a combination of two or more of these treatments to effectively manage ALL the signs of ageing.

We can create a bespoke plan for you taking in to account your unique skin history and lifestyle influences.

NEW – The Perfector. A complete facial treatment for skin rejuvenation, red veins and milia.

I am SUPER excited to let you know about The Perfector – my latest treatment created with busy people like you in mind.

The only treatment of it’s kind available in Ireland

For the first time it is possible to have your anti-ageing skin treatment in combination with diathermy removal of red veins and milia. This is a truly complete facial that targets ALL of your skin issues in a single visit to Skin Essentials.

Merging three essential anti-ageing and complexion correction elements together for the first time, this treatment is exclusive to Skin Essentials, you will not find a similar treatment anywhere else in Ireland!

So many of you want to have facials for skin maintenance, brightening, breakouts or anti-ageing. BUT you also have an annoying visible red vein or two (or twenty, good old Irish weather), on your cheeks or perhaps some milia bumps around your eyes or those little skin tags on your neck or chest.

Well now you don’t have to decide which treatment you will have in your precious free time, The Perfector Facial gives you both.

In one 80 minute session, your skin will be deep cleansed, infused with a customised cocktail of vitamins and minerals, any clogged pores or blackheads extracted, milia and red veins treated with diathermy on face neck and chest, followed by a soothing mask treatment and finally 30 minutes of LED photo-modulation therapy customised to your needs, whether that is anti-ageing, anti-acne or anti-inflammatory. Phew!

This is a treatment that so many of us could use once a year or so (after a certain age!) to deal with the visible capillaries and other skin anomalies that are the result of sun exposure over the years, and just living life! We all get them, now you know the secret to getting rid of them :)

Particularly if you travel a long distance to see us here at Skin Essentias, I know this will be a great addition to your clinical routine, and save two separate trips for separate diathermy and facials

This treatment is currently only performed by myself, so appointments are limited and available Thursday – Saturday weekly. The cost per treatment is €150. Advance booking is recommended as I do get booked up quite far ahead!

Note: During The Perfector treatment, I will be able to remove an average of 20 small lesions such as red veins, milia and spider naevi. If you have dozens of lesions that need treatment you will need to schedule a follow up session.

Here is a recent testimonial from a happy client!

“Hi …I had an appointment with you end of January for a sun spot which was really annoying me.
Had the app with Emma. .. all I can say is Thank you… three weeks later and totally healed and just a slight pink mark … which I take care to use 50+ sun screen on.
Wish I had the courage to have had it done years ago.
Please thank Emma for me…
Blessings… ☺x”

What are milia?

Milia are the white, raised, hard spherical bumps that you can see under your skin. They are very common around the eye contour area and cheekbones but can be seen anywhere on the face. They can become bigger over time. Sometimes they can go away on their own but more often you will ned to have them removed. When you are prone to milia, you will need to work on their causes to prevent new ones forming all the time. Causes and treatments:  Continue reading
