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.

2017: The Year of Ageing Backwards!

2016 was the year of Ageing Slowly here at Skin Essentials, with new launch of products and treatments aimed at preventing and slowing the formation of lines.

FOR 2017, we are bringing you the year of AGEING BACKWARDS, where we will focus on revision of existing signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles, loosening skin, sun spots, age spots and visible red veins.

This is for you if:

-You are a smart, vibrant, accomplished woman.
-You have friends, family, a career that you love and are proud of.
-You feel the best you ever have in your life inside , confident, positive, happy.
-You like how you look, you don’t want to jump on the fillers/anti-wrinkle injections bandwagon. You just want to look like you, but rested and younger. The keyword here is FRESH, NOT FROZEN!

BUT for some reason your mirror isn’t working. It’s showing you a version of yourself that is starting to show ageing around the eyes, maybe the mouth. Your skin is not as bright or radiant as it was.
This can’t be you. You feel just the same inside as you did at 25!

THIS is the moment you realise it’s time to start ageing backwards.

Our generation is standing up to ageing. Our grandmothers may have had to accept wrinkles as a fact of life before 50 but we are luckier, we can say no, thanks.

This is NOT about wrinkle injections, fillers or any other invasive methods (which, in my opinion make people just look like they’ve had enhancements, smoother but, curiously, never younger, even though that is the goal. Weird).

Thanks to fantastic breakthroughs in research and development in the fields of biochemistry, corneotherapy and skin science, our generation can stand up to ageing AND to surgery. We get to have it all – naturally.

By focusing on the scientifically correct components required to build healthy skin, each individual can be assessed to discover exactly what the weaknesses in your skin barrier / cellular processes are, and a programme of strengthening homecare combined wth non-invasive clinical treatments can be determined.

Use of protocols such as microneedling, LED phototherapy, hyaluronic acid hydroporation and vitamin infusion will show amazing visible, measurable results on concerns such as crows feet, lip lines, uneven texture and loosening skin.

The benign blemishes that come with age such as sun spots, skin tags and visible red veins can be very quickly and easily banished with cryotherapy (cold) and diathermy (heat), often in a single session.

Make 2017 the year that you choose to Age Backwards with Skin Essentials.

Bio Therapeutic Needling – Worldwide Exclusive at Skin Essentials

Skin Essentials bring you the future of skincare, NOW.

The next generation of microneedling is here, first and exclusive!!

Bio Therapeutic Needling is an integrated facial therapy combining the best of biochemistry and technology in a regenerating treatment to tighten, firm and contour facial skin while dramatically reducing lines and acne scars.

By uniting the power of two proven protocols – automated microneeding and biophoto therapy –  we bring the principles of corneotherapy to bear on the science of biotechnology, giving you results that are so much more than the sum of the two individual therapies.

What’s in it for you?

-Younger looking, visibly firmer skin

-Progressive, lasting results

-Dramatic reduction in wrinkles and acne scarring

Who is it not suitable for?

Because Bio Therapeutic Needling is a therapy that uses the skin’s own resources rather than introducing foreign materials into the skin, it is an almost universal treatment. However, if you are diabetic, haemophiliac, or otherwise have a compromised immune system this is not for you. Note: wrinkles caused by glycation will not respond to this treatment. This is relatively rare and is determined at your initial consultation before you embark on a course of treatment.
