ENLARGED PORES AND LOSS OF SKIN ELASTICITY
Another common complaint is enlarged pores and loss of skin elasticity related to ageing.
As we hit menopause a lot of us experience a slow down in collagen and elastin production, a reduction in cell turnover leaving our skin dull, dehydrated and enlarged pores.
A lot of our clients complain of their makeup looking cakey and that no matter how much moisturiser they use their skin always looking dry and lifeless.
We offer a lot of effective treatments for collagen stimulation to help tackle these issues.
Dermal Skin Needling
Not as scary as it sounds! Medical grade numbing is provided to ensure the treatment is painless. We recommend doing the treatment usually over a weekend as patients are usually a little pink for the first 48 hours.
Some patients do experience some flaking of the skin over the next week as new collagen matrix is formed during the healing process but this can be avoided with liberal use of a serum that we recommend.
Over the next 6 weeks as your old skin sheds and new skin heals over, you will be left with finer pores, skin feeling firmer and tighter. Needling is also used for Acne pitted scarring and Keloid scaring. We recommend a series of 3 treatments about 6 weeks apart.
Treatments start from $299 – $600.
Packages of 3 are $600.
Results can last over a year.
Platelet Rich Plasma
In combination with Dermal Skin Needling is like putting your skin on steroids.
Your own platelets from your body is harvested and injected back into the treated area to really stimulate new cell growth and collagen.
Patients experience some minor swelling, heat and redness in the area. In rare cases bruising can occur and may take a few days to disaster.
Because you are using a product of your own body there is no side effects. We commonly get the most request to treat the face and neck for our patients. We recommend a series of 3 sessions at $500 per treatment.
Collagen productions can take up to 3 months to occur and results can last up to 2 years.
HIFU = A non invasive mini facelift.
Our clients love this treatment as it is quick, effective and with no downtime. HIFU stands for High intensity focused ultrasound and works by penetrating deeply into the skin to stimulate collagen growth and also tightens tissues under the skin to create a lift.
It is a quick lunch time procedure and you can be back at work in 30 mins. Straight after the treatment the muscles do feel a little sore under the skin and over the next 4 weeks it will continue to tighten as new collagen is produced.
We recommend a series of 2 treatments and prices start from $800 per treatment.
The HIFU can be used around the eyes, neck, mid face, and jawline.
