Not so long ago, it used to be that if you wanted to enhance your facial features, eliminate wrinkles, and turn back the clock, you would have to schedule a visit with a plastic surgeon. Thankfully, aesthetic medicine has evolved significantly to allow us to achieve similar results with non-invasive treatments that don’t require any general anesthetic, surgery or downtime.
As a leading provider of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments in Melbourne, I understand that surgical or invasive procedures aren’t for everyone. Every surgical or invasive procedure carries risks, and skin rejuvenation treatments are a perfect choice for those patients who aren’t ready for that kind of commitment. They painlessly and effortlessly correct the appearance, tone, texture, and elasticity of your skin to give you a refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
Let’s look at some of the most effective and popular non-surgical Skin Rejuvenation treatments.
1) Hydro Dermabrasion – HydraFacial
What is HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is an advanced facial cleansing, exfoliating, and rejuvenation treatment. It uses vortex technology to remove impurities from the skin and deliver specially formulated nutrients and antioxidants to deeply hydrate the skin, reverse the signs of ageing, and promote long-lasting skin health.
The treatment is customisable and can be tailored to treat particular skin types or to address a client’s specific skin concerns.
What Skin Concerns Does HydraFacial Target?
HydraFacial is great for smoothing out uneven skin tone, targeting pigmentation, plumping out fine lines and wrinkles, brightening tired, dull skin and treating mild to moderate acne.
How Long Does a HydraFacial Treatment Take?
It only takes about 30 minutes. It’s the perfect lunchtime facial.
HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types, and there is no downtime following your treatment. However, after your HydraFacial treatment, your skin may appear slightly flushed with some warmth on the treated area. But this will subside within a few hours.
Delivering dramatic results with clients seeing immediately visible improvements in skin tone, texture and brightness of their skin after their treatment. The smoothness and hydration will last 5 to 7 days after the treatment.
Dr T’s Comments
HydraFacial is about finding and maintaining ongoing radiant skin health. One treatment per month is recommended.
2) Skin Needling/Microneedling – SkinPen
What is the SkinPen?
SkinPen is a state of the art micro-needling device. More than a basic skin needling procedure, this precision device can be tailored for individual skin concerns and is suitable for almost every skin type.
What Skin Concerns Does the SkinPen Treatment Target?
Used to treat and improve skin conditions such as acne scarring, loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, brown spots (sun spots), sun exposure scars, pigment issues and stretch marks.
How long does a skin needling treatment last?
A treatment session lasts only 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how many areas need to be treated.
Often the skin can look slightly swollen after a SkinPen procedure. This is due to the normal and natural results of the skin injury sustained during treatment. The degree of swelling (if any) will depend on your skin’s sensitivity and the experience of your provider. If the swelling does occur, it is subtle and subsides in roughly 3 days.
The effects of your skin seedling/micro-needling will treatment lasts anywhere between 3 to 5 months for most people. That said, the number of treatments required and the exact time frame will depend on the severity of your skin issues, age, skin type, and how your skin responds to the treatment.
Dr T’s Comments
Along with addressing the common signs of ageing and acne scars, micro-needling is also ideal for melasma and surgical scars.
3) Laser Skin Rejuvenation – Laser Genesis
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively promote new collagen growth and treats a variety of skin issues.
What Skin Concerns Does a Laser Genesis Treatment Target?
The treatment addresses premature signs of ageing and sun damage, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, excessive redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven skin texture. It has even been scientifically proven to stimulate the production of new collagen.
How Long Does a Laser Genesis Treatment?
Unlike most laser treatments, Laser Genesis is pain-free and can be performed in approximately 30/45 minutes.
Unlike traditional laser skin rejuvenation treatments such as Fractional or CO2 Laser Genesis is much gentler during the procedure. Meaning there is no downtime post-treatment. You may look mildly flushed for a few hours post-treatment.
The skin tightening effects of a Laser Genesis treatment vary depending on the patient’s reaction to the treatment and the number of sessions needed. Most patients enjoy the benefits of the treatment for six to 12 months.
Dr T’s Comments
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require 4 to 6 treatments in order to achieve dramatic results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. However, when the results do take effect, you’ll notice a smoother, radiant and youthful complexion overall.
4) Injectables – Dermal Fillers Skin Boosters
What is a Skin Booster Treatment?
Though Skin Boosters are made from a lightweight hyaluronic acid gel (HA) they do not act like traditional dermal filler injections. They are not used to fill and plump like a dermal filler treatment. Instead, they are injected into the skin superficially and are specially designed to deliver deep skin hydration instead of volume.
What Skin Concerns do Skin Boosters Target?
Skin boosters are perfect for treating dull, tired-looking skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
How Long Does a Skin Booster Treatment Take?
The treatment only takes approximately 15 minutes to inject the small amounts of filler into the appropriate treatment areas.
Some patients may experience small spots of bruising where the skin booster has been injected. Usually most common around the corner of the eyes as the skin is thinner. The small bruising usually disappears within 1 – 2 weeks.
The effects of the treatment usually anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to take into effect and can last up to 9 months to give the skin a more plump and healthier glow.
