I never thought I’d ask someone to stick small needles into my face. Repeatedly. Turns…
If you’re into caring for your skin, you already know that how we do this changes as we age.
But do you know which treatments work best at each stage of ageing?
Where preventing the signs of ageing and holding onto our youthful glow is the goal of many in their 20 and 30s, our 40s, 50s and beyond are all about repairing and restoring to achieve a naturally radiant, healthy-looking complexion that stands the test of time.
Holistic treatments are the goal of the experts at Canberra’s Artisan Aesthetic Clinics, whose highly-skilled doctors, nurses and dermal therapists create treatment plans tailored to individual’s concerns and goals.
Here are their recommendations for maintaining a youthful and radiant glow at any age.
This decade is the perfect time to establish a skin routine that incorporates treatments and products that will enhance your best features while ensuring you maintain a youthful glow.
At this age you have the luxury of being proactive—not reactive—so include regular treatments like a monthly HydraFacial MD™ or Clear + Brilliant®, which stimulate and boost collagen and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin smooth, hydrated and radiant while preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming.
This decade is the time to maintain your youthful glow by establishing a skin routine focused on boosting collagen and hyaluronic acid for a plump and naturally radiant complexion.
In your 30s, it’s all about delaying the ageing process. Treatments should focus on stimulating collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin production and treating skin pigmentation and discolouration. Look at investing in laser treatments like monthly Laser Genesis and Clear + Brilliant®, and an annual Fraxel® to reduce pigmentation and even out skin tone.
Cosmetic injectable treatments like anti-wrinkle and dermal filler are also great in your 30s, as they smooth, tighten, lift and plump to help you maintain a youthful complexion.
Your 40s are the time to invest in your skin routine with treatments that focus on restoring, resurfacing and rejuvenating. It’s all about reducing the signs of ageing.
Treatments should focus on replenishing your skin’s collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin supply to tighten, lift, plump and smooth your skin. Now is the time to consider adding a thread lift to your cosmetic injectable treatment plan to help lift your face.
Consider also investing in an annual Fraxel® to significantly resurface your skin and reduce pigmentation while stimulating collagen formation for a more youthful and plump complexion.
Laser treatments (such as Genesis) are also great for treating any redness and veins that may have started to appear—particularly around your nose—and energy-based skin-tightening treatments like Ultraformer III are the perfect way to lift sagging skin for a tighter, more toned look.
50s, 60s and beyond
Now is the time to seriously elevate your skin routine with treatments that lift and tighten in addition to boosting collagen for a rejuvenated complexion. Now the focus is on reversing the ageing process.
In addition to regular anti-wrinkle treatments, your treatment plan can include laser and energy-based treatments like Fraxel® and Ultraformer III that will penetrate the deeper layers of your skin for long-term collagen stimulation and skin tightening.
Cosmetic injectable treatments like dermal filler, including Collagen Boost, can also help you to achieve a non-invasive, natural-looking ‘face lift’.
And at every age…
- Wearing a strong SPF sunscreen every day (even if you’re indoors).
- Establishing an at-home active skincare routine to boost the results of your treatments.
- Invest in a combination of treatments as part of a long-term holistic treatment plan.
- Treating your neck and décolletage at the same time as your face to ensure consistent results.
