Understanding Ageing

1. Collagen and Elastin Breakdown:

  • Collagen: Collagen is a structural protein that provides strength and support to the skin. Over time, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to thinner and less resilient skin.
  • Elastin: Elastin fibers are responsible for skin elasticity. As we age, the elasticity of elastin diminishes, resulting in sagging and wrinkles.

2. Hyaluronic Acid Depletion:

  • Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps maintain moisture and firmness. With age, hyaluronic acid levels decline, contributing to dryness, fine lines, and loss of volume.

3. Skin Changes:

  • Thinning Skin: As we age, the epidermis (outermost layer of skin) becomes thinner, making it more prone to damage and slower to heal.
  • Decreased Oil Production: Reduced sebum production can lead to dry skin and a loss of the skin’s natural protective barrier.
  • Uneven Pigmentation: Age spots and uneven pigmentation can develop

4. Dynamic Wrinkles:

  • Repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions, such as smiling or squinting, lead to dynamic wrinkles. Over time, these wrinkles can become more pronounced.

5. Photoaging:

  • UV radiation from the sun causes premature aging by breaking down collagen and elastin fibers. It also leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation.

6. Fat and Muscle Atrophy:

  • Fat and muscle loss in the face can lead to hollowed cheeks, deep nasolabial folds, and a sunken appearance. Fat pads that provide youthful fullness may shift or diminish.

7. Bone Resorption:

The bones of the skull and face undergo subtle changes with age, with some areas experiencing resorption or loss of bone density. This can affect the overall facial structure, contributing to a less defined jawline and cheekbones.

8. Lifestyle Factors:

  • Smoking: Smoking accelerates ageing by reducing blood flow to the skin, leading to wrinkles, and a dull complexion.
  • Diet: Poor nutrition can impact skin health, and diets rich in sugar and processed foods may contribute to inflammation and skin ageing.
  • Sleep and Stress: Lack of sleep and chronic stress can affect skin quality, leading to a tired appearance and exacerbating wrinkles.

9. Genetics:

  • Genetic factors play a role in how the ageing process unfolds. Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to age at a slower or faster rate.

Non-invasive Treatment Solutions

Our non-invasive treatments are designed to address these physiological changes associated with facial ageing by stimulating collagen production, restoring volume, and improving skin texture and elasticity. Each treatment modality targets specific aspects of ageing, providing a tailored approach to rejuvenation. A comprehensive consultation with one of our doctors or nurses determines the most appropriate combination of treatments for your unique and individual concerns.

Skin solutions

Your treatment plan factors in your anatomy, concerns, lifestyle and budget. Your plan may include some of the following popular treatments, along with possible prescription treatments (discussed in consultation) and a skincare plan.

  1. Laser Facials & Pigmentation Correction: High-end laser treatments can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and stimulate collagen production. They are effective at addressing sun damage and uneven pigmentation. Read more here.
  2. Microneedling: Microneedling uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. It can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles. Learn more.
  3. Regenerative Therapy: Regenerative Treatment involves extracting and concentrating growth factors from your own blood, which are then injected into the skin to promote collagen production and improve skin texture. More on Regenerative Treatment.
  4. Tixel: Tixel uses highly-focused controlled heat to fractionally rejuvenate the skin. It incurs minimal pain while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, improving skin texture, pore size and the appearance of wrinkles. Detailed information here.
  5. Healite II LED Therapy: LED therapy, also known as light therapy or phototherapy, utilises specific wavelengths of light to address various skin concerns and promote skin health. Sessions can improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity over time. It is particularly effective in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments for overall facial rejuvenation. More.
  6. Collagen-Inducing Treatments: Many of our treatments help to stimulate collagen production. This improves skin quality; gradually plumping and rejuvenating facial tissues. These treatments are effective at addressing crêpiness, wrinkles, and laxity in skin of the face, neck and body.  Read more.

Replenishing facial volume

Volume loss is a common sign of aging and can result in a sunken or hollowed appearance. There are various dermal therapies and prescription treatments available to address this issue, offering natural and rejuvenating results.

1. Cheeks and Mid-Face: As we age, we experience a loss of fat and a decrease in collagen production, which can lead to a flattening of the cheeks and a sagging appearance. Emface for example, can help to build muscle tone helping to add volume and lift to create youthful contours.

2. Under-Eye Hollows: Hollows or dark circles under the eyes can make a person appear tired or aged. Certain regenerative therapies to the tear troughs help to build collagen in these hollow areas, reducing the appearance of under-eye bags and creating a more refreshed look.

3. Temples: Volume loss in the temples can give the face a sunken or aged appearance. People with lower body fat or who work out a lot my notice earlier onset of this typical age-related loss. Treating this area can help add visual weight to upper face and eye area, which tends to be flattering and youthful.

4. Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines: We offer treatments that can help soften the appearance of the deep lines that run from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds) and from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline (marionette lines). Talk to our doctor about the best approach for your case.

6. Facial Balancing: Assessing the proportions of the face is an aspect of aesthetic anti-ageing treatment that shouldn’t be overlooked. Sometimes a minor balancing tweakment can me a huge difference to overall facial harmony, attracting attention to your best features.

Lifting without surgery

The right candidate can achieve a satisfactory amount of lift with non-surgical procedures. Your LookFresh clinician will explain to you in depth the results that you can expect with various different modalities, however these are some of the treatments we may recommend:

  1. Ultherapy: Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. It targets deep layers of tissue, providing a lifting effect for the brow, chin, neck, and décolletage. The results are gradual and can last for up to a year or more. Learn more.
  2. Emface: Emface is a non-invasive facial treatment that utilises RF and microcurrent technology to lift; targeting facial muscles, connective tissue and skin. By toning the SMAS layer of tissue, Emface provides a lifting effect and improves overall facial contours. It has numerous additional benefits: Read more.
  3. Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments: Our Exilis Elite device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening. These treatments are effective for lifting and firming loose facial tissues as well as improving tone and texture. Learn more.
  4. Other Treatments: We offer prescription treatments, non-prescription treatments and an extensive range of dermal therapies. In accordance with TGA regulations, not all of these treatments are advertised or listed on our website. Our doctor is available discuss all applicable options with you during your consultation.
