Ageing is a dynamic process
Ageing is a dynamic process that is inevitable, so why not invest in slowing down the process.
Ok Ok … Ok – there isn’t a way in hell to slow down the ageing process. In fact, I try to avoid using the term anti-ageing if I can. To be fair it is a term so commonly used now that we are actually believing that we can stop the ageing process.
Firstly let us acknowledge that there are factors that accelerate skin ageing such as:
- Excess Alcohol
- Tanning and Sun Damage
- Poor Diet
- Lack of Sleep
- Mental Health
- Dry Skin
So maybe there are changes to your lifestyle & diet that you can make to help slow down your ageing process. Unfortunately, if you have not stuck to a healthy lifestyle & diet for many years, skin damage, & accelerated ageing, has been embedded.
Luckily there is so much that can be done to help repair, or minimise, the damage done.
When the damage has set in, especially over many years, it is hard to get your skin looking fresh and young. Ageing is a dynamic process that is inevitable. Luckily there is so much that can be done to help repair, or minimise, the damage done.
That’s why I love being an advanced aesthetic practitioner. There are so many tools in my clinic that have helped my clients to maintain their youthful beauty, and yes I mean my male clients too.
Skin Boosters with HA are amazing when it comes to hydrate and revitalise your skin.
I especially love Hyaluronic Acid [HA]. HA dermal fillers are an aesthetic gel based treatment that is injected into the skin designed specifically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour your face and create volume. Advanced treatments, especially those injectables with HA and skin boosters, help to reduce the damage done, and most importantly, improve the condition of your new skin developing. Skin Boosters with HA are amazing when it comes to hydrate and revitalise your skin. I use meso-needling methods to enhance these skin boosters ability for skin rejuvenation.
Peels are making a comeback in my opinion. These work! What’s more is that peels are less invasive than laser treatments, and a more economic method of achieving smooth, youthful-looking, complexion. My go to peel is a Retinol Peel.

Ageing maybe a dynamic process, but as we age, our skin is less dynamic. Skin cell turnover slows down from the age of 30 and upwards. This slowdown seems to lead to unwanted build up of dead skin cells resulting in dull looking skin and appearance. My aim with a retinol peel is to exfoliate the skin without the harshness of a physical exfoliation that damages the skin over time. The exfoliation uncovers newer, brighter, skin safely.
Using Retinol has an advantage. Being part of the Vitamin A family, it converts to Retinoic Acid that penetrates into the skin.
What’s the benefits of Retinioc Acid?
- Rejuvenation of new skin cells
- Reduction of fine lines & wrinkles
- Stimulates collagen synthesis that leads to firmer, plumper skin
- Reduce age spots & pigmentation due to sun damage
- Decreases acne breakouts
After a Retinol Peel, it is crucial to be advised on the best skin care regime for you. This should be tailored to your lifestyle and daily routine. Many of us get treatments but fail to maintain results by not being compliant to good skin care.
To complement all treatments are anti-wrinkle injections with botulinum toxin, aka Botox™ Bocouture™ Azzalure™ & Dysport™. After injecting it relaxes the muscles preventing harsh movements that crease the skin. This action leads to the reduction of facial lines from embedding into the skin, hence the term anti-wrinkle injections. If done correctly and maintained over time, these injections can be used as a preventer of wrinkles giving us the illusion of not ageing over time.
The secret to youthful looks is a combination of aesthetic treatments.
Don’t rush out and get all this done in one treatment. I encourage my clients to always come in for a planning session. This is a journey that we take together over time. The secret to youthful looks is a combination of aesthetic treatments & good skin care regimes.
