The best aesthetic treatments for all ages from your 20s to 60s

What you can do to keep looking your best, regardless of your age.

In your 20’s

This is the time to start a skincare regimen with effective results. Look for products that contain high antioxidants, peptides, retinol, and use them with a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to prevent further sun damage.

Gentle laser treatments, like Clear + Brilliant, are great for young skin.

Lasers can address pigmentation and increase skin porosity, so you get the most from your products.

Collagen-boosting treatments like microneedling will also make a long term difference making the skin healthier and more resilient and looking extra plump and glowy.

It’s likely that you won’t need any structural filler in your 20’s however you may want to add some volume to your lips with dermal fillers.


Clear + Brilliant / $350 per session including Healite II Tretament
SkinPen® Microneedling / $350 per session
Plump Lips / $399 1 ml Premium Dermal Filler

 

In your 30’s

The first signs of ageing will appear unexpectedly and often around the eyes, forehead, and mouth/lip area.

To maintain your look we may recommend treatments such as:

Microneedling – to improve the overall tone, minimise sunspots, and promote collagen production for healthy, bright and smooth skin.

Chemical peels – to brighten skintone, increase skin tightening and improve the overall skin tone and texture.

Wrinkle Relaxers – to treat fine lines and proactively prevent the formation of deeper lines by limiting the muscle movements that cause wrinkles.

Treatments like laser resurfacing can effectively combat the early signs of skin sagging and laxity.


SkinPen® Microneedling / $350 per session
Mesoestetic Chemical peels / from $110 each
Wrinkle Relaxers / from $180 per area
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

In your 40’s

Due to a decrease in collagen production and other natural structural elements, you may notice a loss of volume and reduced elasticity in the face.

Since cell turnover also slows down in your 40’s, your skin may also begin to lose some of its natural glow, resulting in a duller complexion.

Treatments to look for:

Wrinkle Relaxers, to reduce lines and give a smoother look.

Dermal fillers can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and counteract the visible signs of volume loss by adding contour to the face to recreate the fuller look of younger skin.

Radio Frequency to counteract the loss of skin’s natural structure and stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, and can be administered on the face and body.

While gentle lasers are still effective, more aggressive laser treatments like laser resurfacing may produce better results in your 40’s for improving the tone of skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers / from $550
INFINI Radio Frequency + Microneedling / $600 per session
Laser Resurfacing / $350 per session

 

In your 50’s

When we reach our 50’s we continue to see loss of volume in the face and skin laxity becomes more pronounced.

As the face begins to sag overall, jowls can appear with the falling of the jawline and cheeks.

Lines can start to appear around the lips and we tend to lose lip volume.

Sun exposure and smoking can speed up the development of lines so make sure you are wearing high factor sunscreen.

Treatments to consider in your 50’s:

Volumising dermal fillers, especially in the mid-face/cheek area to correct volume loss and lift the jowls.

Wrinkle Relaxers for the treatment of lines and wrinkles in the face and neck.

Collagen stimulators not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance.

Thread lifting, a ‘non-surgical’ face and neck lift treatment using sutures such as Silhouette Soft to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating new collagen production, reducing wrinkles, tightening pores and creating volume.

Erbium resurfacing lasers: These more aggressive lasers can combat the increasing signs of sun damage and improve overall skin texture.

Radio Frequency, a non-invasive procedure to tighten and lift the skin on the face and neck, making it a good alternative to a traditional facelift. It relies on Radio Frquency to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment resulting in tighter, smoother and more lifted skin.

Collagen stimulators / from $800
Sillhouette Soft Thread Lift / from $1,200

In your 60’s

Some women select surgical options (blepharoplasty, facelift, necklift) to address age-related concerns and bring more youthful contours back to the face, but you can also restore volume to your face with a variety of nonsurgical treatments.

Wrinkle Relaxers. The aim is to soften the lines helping look fresher and rested. Anti-wrinkle injections can be also used to treat upper lip lines and to prevent the mouth corners from downturning.

Dermal fillers to replace the volume that has been lost. Volume loss causes marionette lines to form, the cheeks to flatten and for you to develop nasolabialfolds.

We aim to correct this volume loss and revert the shape of the face towards the inverted triangle that was present in your younger years.

Collagen stimulators to stimulate the formation of your own collagen for subtle, but noticeable results. They are injected deep in the dermal layer to reinforce your skin’s structure and to restore fullness and face contours.

The Silhouette Soft Thread lift (non-surgical facelift) is a minimally invasive treatment to redefine facial contours and combat sagging skin with immediate results.

If you aren’t a candidate for a facelift, you can still undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure using a skin resurfacing treatment that can smooth out lines and wrinkles, and also improve the texture and tone of your skin.

The Ultimate Aftercare Guide for Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers

Within the past few years, the popularity of injectables has skyrocketed. So we have created this guide to ensure optimised results, safety, product longevity, and answer all your questions.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons annual report, 2018 marked the highest number of wrinkle relaxer injections to date. Meanwhile, soft tissue fillers secured the second position among the most popular minimally-invasive procedures of the year.

Treatments have shifted from taboo to commonplace. Although data from 2019 is yet to surface, we can assume continued growth for injectables within the cosmetic industry. 

The Most Popular Uses for Cosmetic Injectables and Fillers 

Wrinkles can occur at (sometimes surprising) stages of our life due to varying factors. 

According to Medical News Today, the first sign of wrinkles are usually due to facial expressions. Other factors such as sun exposure, drinking, smoking, medications and genetics also play a major role. 

During the ageing process, the skin loses volume and elasticity, diminishing the ability to “snap back” – inevitably causing its appearance to change. This can cause the face to look exhausted or hollow. 

Primarily, dermal fillers add volume, contour & lift and wrinkle relaxers can soften wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines and teeth grinding. 

Media representations of botched ‘tox or overfilled faces have caused public misconceptions of cosmetic treatments. Medical procedures carry risks – however, distorted and frozen faces aren’t the norm, and are more reflective of the doctor. 

Results should be a fresh, more youthful look – keeping your natural appearance intact. While it doesn’t have to be a secret, it could be. 

What to Expect During Treatment 

Although Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers have different functions, they are both injectables – therefore you can expect a similar treatment process. 

Before your treatment, it’s important to communicate with your doctor your desired results. They should work with you to consider your facial symmetry and if your desired look is realistic. Once you have established a shared outcome, your Doctor can go ahead with the procedure. 

Numbing cream, and/or ice, will be applied for some treatment areas such as lips and in some cases ice. You may experience mild discomfort during the process. Some areas are more sensitive than others. Across the web, some have reported injectables to feel slightly worse than a flu shot. Luckily, regardless of your pain threshold, the treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes. 

The doctor will then show you the results, let you relax for a moment, and then you’re fine to go home! 

Aftercare for Injectables: Frequently Asked Questions

Is it normal to bruise?

Bruising is a common side effect and typically resolves within 10-14 days.

As is the case with most treatments, this is highly dependant on the individual. Some people may not experience any bruising at all, while others are more prone to it. 

Bruising occurs as some areas are more vascular than others, while lifestyle factors and medications can also increase the chances of bruising. 

The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology suggests that to mitigate bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications such as Aspirin for a few days prior to treatment. Also on the list, some herbal supplements are believed to increase bruising including high doses of Vitamin E and even garlic! 

However, research shows that other factors can cause bruising, such as alcohol intake, age and vitamin deficiencies. 

To minimise bruising, applying a cold compress to the area immediately is one of the most effective available methods. 

Others suggest a topical application of Arnica Montana, 1-2 days prior and 1 day after may also be effective. Bromelain (pineapple enzyme) may also assist in clearing metabolic waste from injuries such as bruises. However, always ensure you speak with your doctor first. 

What should I avoid, why? 

Refrain from vigorous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. This can exacerbate bruising by driving blood to the area. 

A general rule of thumb is to treat the area like any wound, let it breathe, don’t play with it, don’t put anything on it that might irritate the skin, be gentle and wait for it to heal. 

Can I fly post treatment? 

It is usually recommended to wait at least 48 hours after receiving dermal fillers. While this may cause no effect, pressurised cabins can intensify swelling and bruising. This means the possibility of becoming extra puffy if flying too soon after fillers. 

Wrinkle Relaxers are a little more adaptable to flying. Again, it is recommended to wait at least 48 hours before hopping on an aeroplane, especially overseas. Although both these procedures are generally safe, in the event of an adverse side effect it is best to be able to contact your doctor immediately.

Help, I can feel small bumps in my lips! 

Small and soft lumps, for up to a week post-treatment are a common, and normal reaction to lip fillers or dermal fillers. Hard, persistent lumps are not common, and it is best to seek medical advice.

Soft lumps are common and can usually be gently massaged out. Again, if anything feels not quite right, always double-check with your doctor! 

When to Contact your Doctor

During the consultation, your doctor will inform you of possible side effects such as bruising, swelling or redness in the treated area. Always ask if you have any questions. It is also important to remember that everyone is different, and what is a normal response for you might not be normal for everyone else.

Are Microtreatments The Best New Beauty Procedures?

Microtreatments are quite a new concept in Perth and in Australia, but thousands of women over the world claim they create better results than any other option on the market today.

In most instances, microtreatments do not involve any surgery, and you can be in and out of the clinic in a matter of minutes or hours. Injections will be involved for the best outcomes, but that’s much better than going under the knife to achieve your aesthetic goals.

If you’re still not convinced about microtreatments, here are some examples of the type of concerns they can address and the benefits.

 

Improving crow’s feet and frown lines

Crow’s feet and frown lines can make people appear much older than they actually are. So, it makes sense that you will want to smooth them out as soon as they appear on your face (or before they do). While there are many moisturisers available on the market that claim to produce those results, few of them cut it in terms of real results.

There are also surgical options, but there is no need to spend that much money or put your body through such an invasive experience. Microtreatments are the perfect solution and can usually be administered in your lunch break with little downtime.

We encourage clients to book a consultation appointment with our Doctors first, so you get all the information you require about the best ways to kick those tired eyes to the curb.

Smoothing and tightening the skin

When the skin on your face and neck becomes flabby and loose, you will begin to look old before your time. Again, there are lots of surgical solutions available, however, most experts agree there is no need to opt for something like that now we have microtreatments on the scene. Our Doctors will take a look at your concerns and then offer advice on the best microtreatments to address them.

That will often involve the use of cutting-edge creams and moisturisers, and you might also benefit from cosmetic injectables like wrinkle relaxers or skin treatments like laser resurfacing.

Treatments like laser resurfacing can effectively combat the early signs of skin sagging and laxity.

Creating the illusion of high cheekbones

Microtreatment Doctors now offer cheek enhancement services that can help you to create the illusion of high cheekbones with dermal fillers. While it’s a temporary solution lasting 9 – 18 months before a top is due, you’re guaranteed to become the envy of your friends.

If you want to assess the results for yourself; book a complimentary consulatation to see if the treatment could benefit you. Some people spend thousands of dollars with plastic surgeons to get those desirable cheeks, but there are much more affordable options with correct combination of microtreatments.

Now You Can Contour Your Face With Injectables

In the Doctor's office there's now an option for "contouring" the jawline. Chin Up is an injection that dissolves fat in double chins.

CHIN UP™ injections reduce fat under the chin, known as submental which can redefine your jawline resulting in a more contoured neck profile.CHIN UP™ fat dissolving injections can effectively eliminate your double chin without surgery.

How does CHIN UP™ work to treat double chins?

CHIN UP™ by SKYN is a treatment involving the injection of  deoxycholic acid (found naturally in the body) into the fat in the double chin area, which destroys the fat cells. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again – so once you have achieved the look that you want, it is unlikely that you will need more treatment.

How is the CHIN UP™ treatment performed?

Injections are only performed by SKYN® Doctors who have been trained in the treatment. The treatment involves a number of small injections into the fat beneath your chin.

What to expect

The CHIN UP treatment is administered in a series of sessions spaced a few weeks to a month apart for the best results.

Treatment sessions usually take 15 – 20 minutes. You may experience some bleeding, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at or near the treatment area, however these side effects are typically short-lived. While this is a non-invasive procedure and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward, you may experience some redness, bruising and swelling for a few days up to a few weeks afterward. We suggest that you schedule your treatment near the end of the week, or over the weekend.

Over time, you’ll notice your double chin gradually receding, revealing a slimmer, natural-looking neckline. Because the fat cells targeted by the CHIN UP treatment are destroyed, your results are likely permanent.

Wrinkle Relaxers VS Dermal Fillers: What You Need To Know

Short of going under the knife, there are essentially two options to deliberate – wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers.

Wrinkle Relaxers Perth VS Dermal Fillers Perth. For many, the first appearance of frown lines is a real worry. And of course, when we worry, we frown – compounding the problem once more. A make-up re-strategy can make-do for a while, but eventually, there comes a time when further treatment becomes a serious consideration.

 

It is a shame that the word ‘B****’ (wrinkle relaxers) is still charged with a certain amount of stigma. It is understandable, of course, for once upon a time the treatment was certainly not so advanced, safe and reliable as it is now, and indeed, as we covered in some depth in our last blog post, there remains a somewhat unregulated culture of cheap treatments that perhaps serves to keep suspicions alive.

 

But the truth of the matter is that in this day and age, provided that you seek professional treatment from a reputed clinician, Wrinkle Relaxers are entirely safe, produce beautiful results, and users look and feel fresh, more relaxed and confident to boot – no more frowning at yourself in the mirror.

 

And the same goes for dermal fillers. Indeed, if you’ve been rummaging around online looking for treatments to counteract inevitable changes in the skin, then you will no doubt have come across this injectable procedure on your travels.

 

Again, the use of such a treatment was once – maybe just ten years ago in fact – somewhat frowned upon (ironically enough), and considered vain, dangerous and unnecessary. But attitudes have changed over the years, and so too has the science and reliability of the treatment. These days, fillers are quick and simple procedures that yield stunning results, are completely safe (provided you source treatment from a qualified, reputed professional), and are far more accepted in modern society.

 

But how do you choose between the two? What are the differences? And which is the right treatment for you?

 

Dermal Fillers: What Are Dermal Fillers And How Do They Work?

When we refer to dermal fillers, we’re talking about a specific substance that is injected into the face in order to improve its appearance.

 

The substance in question is made up largely of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule that attracts and binds water to the skin.

 

When we reach a certain age – usually 25 or there about – the body ceases to produce collagen and elastin. These two proteins work together to keep skin elastic and tissue firm – and without them, the existing collagen in the body begins to break down, and premature changes in the skin (wrinkles, sunken cheeks, hollow eyes etc.) begin to occur.

 

Dermal fillers simply act as a natural replacement for these lost proteins. They work in harmony with the body’s remaining elastin and collagen and give the skin a rejuvenated, bright appearance.

 

In addition, fillers also add volume to the injected areas and physically smooth out any lines and creases that may have occurred.

Fillers: How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The procedure is very brief. In most cases, the treatment will be administered in under half an hour.

Fillers: Are There Any Side Effects Of The Treatment?

Normally, the only side-effects associated with dermal fillers are small amounts of swelling and bruising from where the needles go in. These can be masked with makeup and will disappear after just a few days. A little itching and tenderness is also sometimes reported.

 

Very rarely, more extreme side effects may occur, such as if the patient has an allergic reaction to the filler, or an infection occurs. To minimise risk with dermal fillers, it is very important the practitioner has had specialist training and is using safe products correctly. Should unwanted effects occur, that practitioner should be able to manage them safely.

Fillers: How Long Does The Treatment Last?

Dermal fillers will last anywhere between 6 and 18 months. This will depend on the type of hyaluronic acid used, as well as how the individual patient responds to the treatment. Your practitioner should be able to advise you as to what product will work best for you.

Fillers: who Is this Treatment Most Suited For?

Fillers are most prominently used on patients at the lower parts of the face, especially around the lips. People who are looking to add volume and structure to the face are the usual candidates for filler treatments. However, fillers can also be used to great effect in other areas of the face, especially when combined with a Botox treatment.

Wrinkle Relaxers: What Are Wrinkler Relaxers And How Do They Work?

Wrinkle Relaxers are a natural protein that is used to correct wrinkles and other skin changes, but it works in a different way than dermal fillers. Wrinkle Relaxers are the most tested, safe and reliable product on the market. Decades of research have gone into the product, and, aside from cosmetic treatments, has been used extensively to treat medical conditions, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

 

Once again delivered by injection, the main function of Wrinkle Relaxers in cosmetic terms is to temporarily relax muscles in the treated area that are the cause of wrinkles and lines.

 

Essentially, Wrinkle Relaxers block the signal from the brain which instructs the facial muscles to contract. This causes wrinkles, lines and creases to relax and soften.

 

Wrinkle Relaxers: How Long Does The Procedure Take?

Not long at all. Typically, a Wrinkle Relaxer procedure will be finished in under half an hour, though no more than 45 minutes.

 

Wrinkle Relaxers: Are There Any Side Effects Of The Treatment?

There is no downtime associated with Wrinkle Relaxers – meaning that you can continue your normal day once you’ve had it done.

 

There may be a little bruising or swelling around the areas where the needle goes in, but this can all be very easily covered with make-up.

 

There are no long-term side effects of a Wrinkle Relaxer treatment. However, some patients come in who just want a single line fixed. A good practitioner, however, will consider the face holistically. That is to say that when only a single area is treated the patient can end up with an unnatural look, and so the professional practitioner will balance the treatment accordingly. This is all the more reason why you should never opt for cheap procedures administered by undertrained or unqualified practitioners.

 

Wrinkle Relaxers: How Long Do Wrinkle Relaxers Last?

Depending on the patient, a single treatment will typically last between 3 and 6 months, after which a retreatment will be required.

 

Wrinkle Relaxers: Who Is This Treatment Most Suited For?

Wrinkle Relaxers are generally used to treat moderate to deep frown lines in the upper parts of the face, in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

 

Wrinkle Relaxers: Who Should Avoid Treatment?

Wrinkle Relaxers are not suitable for correcting wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity. In addition, those with medical conditions such as muscle complaints or damaged nerves should avoid Wrinkle Relaxers treatment, and must disclose this information to the practitioner before treatment commences.

 

Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid Wrinkle Relaxers – although there is no clinical evidence to suggest that this treatment will harm either baby or mother, medical professionals nonetheless advise against its use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
