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.


Wrinkle Relaxers / from $180 per area
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.

Dermal Fillers / from $550
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.

THREAD LIFT, FILLERS or PRP. What’s best for you?

With an extensive menu of rejuvenation treatments now available, many are uncertain about the most suitable aesthetic treatment for their face. The issues facing those looking for non-surgical rejuvenation enhancement techniques are:

  1. what can be accomplished  
  2. the downtime
  3. how long the results can last

Some of our most requested face-enhancing, youth-reviving treatments are Dermal Fillers, the Thread Lift and PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma). Their benefits in terms of reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting and rejuvenating the skin have different suitabilities, depending on what the client desires.

The treatments are often use in combination or with complimentary treatments like INFINI RF + Microneedling, Laser Peels or Laser Resurfacing

 

Dermal Fillers

How Dermal Fillers work under your skin

 

Here is a quick rundown of what each of these aesthetic frontrunners do. Dermal Fillers are so called because they are made to fill the spaces in our skin which have lost volume with age, hereby showing signs of hollowness, lines and wrinkles. Most dermal fillers used nowadays are natural fillers, owing to their high safety profile and reversibility with a simple enzyme hyaluronidase. Owing to the advancements in dermal filler technology, fillers of different key strengths have emerged, each suited to deliver distinctive outcomes.

 

Dermal Fillers have a filling and sculpting capacity and can create enviable cheeks while restoring facial volume, while Skinboosters are targeted at replenishing the collagen stores of the superficial dermis, boosting their water content, immediately improving skin complexion.

 

Thread Lift

How Threadlifts work under your skin

Threadlifts have undergone several positive revolutions; previous threads used were poorly made and not absorbable.

 

Latest innovations such as Silhouette Soft Thread Lift use 100% bio-absorbable threads that stimulate the formation of a supporting collagen matrix that will anchor the lift as the threads disappear in the upcoming months.

 

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is famed for superb lifting capacity and utilises anchoring cones cleverly sited along lengthy Poly L-lactic acid threads and is known is the “Queen of all threadlifts”. If your aim is to have the maximal lift, then Silhouette would be the one for you.

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

How PRP work under your skin

 

As we age our complexion can start to look tired and dull, one of the reasons is the reduction of platelets in the blood. The Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) boosts the platelets to rejuvenate the skin, improving tone and texture. Extensive research has established a direct correlation between platelets and tissue growth.

 

PRP therapy draws on a patient’s own blood, using it to generate thicker, smoother and more supple skin in areas such as the face and neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, before being reinjected into the treatment area. There, the activated platelets release growth factors, which facilitate cell growth, the formation of blood capillaries and, most importantly, the building of new collagen.

 

While the above treatments may have their fair share of loyal followers, we have scientifically broken them down to their pros and cons. Bearing in mind that your aesthetic goal may be different from another person, the same goes for capacity for downtime, discomfort etc. While this may serve as a guide, nothing will replace a good heart-to-heart talk with your trusted aesthetic doctor. It helps to visit a clinic that offers all treatments, so you can be assured that their recommendation will not be biased but rather be impartial.

Case studies: Infini in practice

Two practices share their experience using the popular microneedling fractional RF device, INFINI.

INFINI combines customisable fractional RF energy and micro-needling to achieve noticeable, reproducible improvement of wrinkles, pigmentation, skin laxity and acne scarring. The synergistic combination of RF energy and microneedling has been reported to help achieve a 3D tightening of the skin and improvement of photoaged skin.

We profile two clinics using INFINI and how this popular device delivers in practice.

INFINI combines two proven modalities in the one treatment: micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. This combination treats both the superficial and the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer as well as improving the skin’s texture and tone, bringing a youthful luminosity to the skin.

The therapist’s ability to manipulate the energy level of the RF and the needle depth according to the patient’s needs means treatment is tailored to each individual and their concerns.

INFINI is ideal for those seeking overall rejuvenation of their skin; reducing fine lines and wrinkles; improving skin laxity; refining the appearance of pores; or treating acne scarring.

By improving the collagen base, the structure that support the skin, INFINI is able to address all of these concerns.

We like to refer to INFINI as micro-needling on steroids. What we really mean is that INFINI gives visible results very quickly without the side effects often seen with other micro-needling systems.

Because the RF energy is being delivered simultaneously, there is controlled coagulation at the dermal layer, allowing the skin to heal quicker without the associated redness of conventional micro-needling that more sensitive skins experience.

This coagulation also stimulates a stronger wound healing response in the dermal layer, triggering the formation of collagen without damage to the superficial layers of the skin. It’s a win-win situation for those looking for a skin treatment that delivers real results with negligible downtime.

For rejuvenation, we recommend three treatments 5-6 weeks apart, and then yearly maintenance treatments. Our patients never fail to rebook and we have seen patients returning yearly.

For scarring we use a similar approach, using different levels of energy and depth of treatment. The severity of the scarring, the patient’s response and expectations determine the number of INFINI treatments required.

INFINI is distributed by Advanced Cosmeceuticals, which I have found to be a highly professional, warm and wonderfully pleasant company to deal with. We believe this is a flow-through from Catherine Biedermann’s own personal commitment to AC as their Managing Director.

Their training is thorough and delivered professionally and generously. Marketing support is actively given and the price of the consumables are negligible – it’s a refreshing change in this industry. It allows us to make such a results-driven, proven treatment more widely available to a broader range of client.

The bottom line is: the treatment really works, and this is manifested in our patients’ enthusiasm for the treatment, their recommendations and their return business.

Radiofrequency has been around for over 10 years and works by heating the skin to a level that stimulates collagen production. Traditional devices have delivered the energy from the outside in, with limited results and a considerable level of client discomfort.

INFINI is unique as it leverages microneedling to deliver the RF energy directly into the dermis at the precise calibrated depth.

These tiny gold-plated needles create microscopic tunnels allowing the RF energy to reach the targeted deeper layers for skin tightening. INFINI is able to induce CIT and skin tightening while not heating or injuring the top layer of the skin, making it a safer treatment for all skin types with minimal downtime.

The initial attraction to INFINI was the ability to offer clients both modalities in a single treatment. It enables a multilayered approach that allows us to customise treatments that are quick, have minimal downtime and offer greater comfort than traditional skin tightening procedures.

INFINI has become our go-to device, and we are seeing impressive results with wrinkles and fine lines, dull or rough skin texture, loss of volume beneath skin, sagging skin, and skin laxity. In particular, its ability to treat acne scarring on all skin types and colours, and also for those who are not candidates for laser treatment due to inflammatory hyperpigmentation concerns, is also impressive.

Although some clients notice improvement with a single session, we typically recommend a minimum of three needling followed by a single RF treatment. Additional sessions may be needed to address excess laxity or acne scars.

Patient feedback has been positive and surpassed our expectations, and generally theirs. We under-promise and INFINI over-delivers.

We’ve received fantastic support and follow-through from Advanced Cosmeceuticals – any questions the doctors or therapists have raised have been answered immediately. Importantly, consumables are considerably less costly than traditional RF devices, meaning we can offer the treatments to clients at a competitive and manageable cost.

The device is a workhorse for us; it does not sit in a corner gathering dust due to the prohibitive cost of consumables being passed on to clients.
