Anti Ageing Skincare: Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles. Restore & Repair Mature Skin Tone Natural Glow.

What are the Best Treatments for Anti Ageing Skincare?

‘Ageing’ is quite a blanket term for what happens to our skin; our skin naturally ages, some more dramatically than others and much of this can be to do with our genetics. However, our lifestyle hugely contributes to how our skin looks now and how it will look as we age.

These lifestyle choices can often be ‘read’ from our skin, especially by the trained eye of a skincare specialist.

Sun lover? Often, they will have uneven pigmentation on their skin, including sun or ‘age’ spots. Other signs of skin ageing such as crepiness, age spots and wrinkles will be more advanced than someone of a similar age who hasn’t had as much UV exposure.

Smoker? Skin often appears dull and can take on a grey-ish appearance and they can have pronounced ‘smokers lines’ around their mouth from the repetitive dragging motion on the cigarette. Like a sun lover, a smokers skin often has signs of skin ageing that are more advanced than someone who doesn’t smoke.

Runner? The theory is that running can cause oxygen and free-radical damage that in turn impacts the skin, however a study published in Free Radical Biology and Medicine suggests that it is only extreme cardio (70-80% of your maximum heart rate) will have this impact on your skin. However, someone who does exercise, especially if it is for weight-loss, can experience their face becoming thinner and, in some instances, gaunt-looking faces can look older than they truly are.

Exercise & Anti Ageing. Extreme Exercise can Cause the Appearance of Fine Lines, Wrinkles. Myths About Natural Skincare Routines.

 

I would suggest that for most people, doing moderate exercise is far better for you than worrying about the impact on your face-especially when there are aesthetic skin treatments that can help improve the look of gauntness. One thing I would highlight though, is if you exercise outside, wear sunscreen and a hat to help stop the sun damaging and ageing your skin.

Sleep on your side? Yep! We can tell that too. Most people who have a side that they prefer sleeping on will often show more dramatic signs of ageing on that side of the face. Wrinkles tend to be deeper, the cheek on that side tends to be flatter and the eyelid is usually slightly heavier or droopier on that side too. This is simply a case of wear and tear; pressure and the consistent friction and rubbing takes its toll on the fat pads in your face (such as those that give you the plump-looking apples of your cheeks) as well as helping to breakdown your collagen and elastin fibres.

Back to the question in hand.

What’s best for ageing skin?

Well, as you can see from the above, ageing skin comes in many different forms (and for many different reasons), so there is not a one-size-fits-all solution for ageing skin. However, there are some incredible treatments and technologies available to tackle the various signs of ageing which I’ll run through now:

What’s the top anti ageing treatments for Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

This is a difficult one because we so many impressive anti-ageing treatments that can provide anti ageing effects for fine lines and wrinkles at Skin to Love.

Our very favourite cosmetic treatments to help reduce wrinkles here in our St. Albans skin clinic are probably:

Botox

Botox-this injectable treatment is incredibly popular at our clinic and is super effective at being able to reduce wrinkles caused by muscle movement-commonly frown lines on the forehead and crows feet lines around the eyes.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

Anti Ageing Products & Skincare. Mature Wrinkle Free Beauty Botox Serum Formulated for Smooth Skin Texture & Wrinkle Free Appearance.

 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers-again, another incredibly popular treatment at Skin to Love. There isn’t usually a day that goes by where our medical practitioners don’t perform these treatments. Filler can give a very natural-looking softening to deep & fine lines and wrinkles, immediately.

 

Dermal Fillers

Derma FNS

Derma FNS– this is sometimes called derma pen and can be used anywhere on the face and body but can be very effective around the lips. This is micro-needling and stimulates your skins own rejuvenation system, triggering the production of collagen which will help to smooth your skin.

What are the top anti ageing skincare tips for sunspots?

Fraxel Dual laser is our go to treatment for sun-induced pigmentation. Sunspots, freckles, uneven pigmentation, Fraxel does it all.

With Fraxel laser, we can specifically target the pigment and trigger your skin to rid itself of the old, sun damage skin cells and safely replace them with brand new, undamaged cells. This creates a more even complexion and helps to soften and remove sunspots.

What’s the top anti ageing treatments for crepy and thin skin?

We really like the injectable treatments, Profhilo and Sunekos, for skin that has become thin and crepy.

 

Profhilo Treatment

Anti Ageing Skincare Products. Mature Wrinkle Free Beauty Sunekos Serum for Smooth Skin Texture, Natural Glow & Wrinkle Free Appearance.

 

The Sunekos treatment regenerates the Extracellular Matrix (a meshwork within your skin composed of a type I and III collagens and elastin) and deeply hydrates and plumps the treated tissue.

The result is a reduction in the severity of your wrinkles, hydration to the deep and superficial layers of your skin, a plumping effect in the skin and a dramatic boost to your elastin and collagen. A course of weekly Sunekos is required.

Profhilo Treatment

Anti Ageing Skincare Products. Mature Wrinkle Free Beauty Hydrating Profhilo Serum for Smooth Skin Texture, Natural Glow & Wrinkle Free Appearance

 

Profhilo stimulates a remodelling process of your tissue. There is deep hydration of your tissues, better quality elastin and 4 types of collagen are stimulated, and the fatty layer of your skin is regenerated.

This process results in an improvement in skin laxity and quality, improved tissue hydration and firmness and smoothing and tightening of your skin. Two sessions are required approximately 30 days apart; in some cases where the skin has reasonably advanced signs of ageing, a third treatment may be recommended.

What are the top non surgical anti ageing treatments for sagging skin? 

Thermage Treatment

We have achieved some spectacular non-surgical results with both the Thread lift and Thermage treatments; these can be had as stand-alone treatments, and often are, but we have also seen some really exciting results when clients have a combination of both Thermage and a Thread Lift.

 

Thread lift

Thread Lifting

The Thread Lift, sometimes referred to as the ‘mini thread lift’, uses small threads, comprised of complex carbohydrates (the same material that’s used for heart surgery, so super safe). These threads are carefully placed into your skin to lift and firm sagging skin; this is extremely popular around the lower face where we can look ‘heavy’ and have lost the definition in our jawline.

We’ve written our Ultimate guide to the Thread Lift treatment, which you might like to take a look at.

 

Thread lift

Thermage & Skincare Products: Natural Beauty Beyond Wrinkle Creams. Active Hydrating Collagen Regeneration.

 

Thermage harnesses the power of radiofrequency to trigger your skin to regenerate your collagen deep within and actually stimulates the production of new collagen in the treated area which makes it a great skin tightening treatment without needing any surgery.

Thermage is wonderful because it can be used anywhere on the body or the face, including the eyelids themselves, which as you can imagine if very popular seeing as the eyes are one of the first places to show signs of ageing. You can read more about having a Thermage treatment for drooping eyelids here.

What is the top anti ageing treatment for loss of facial volume?

You can replace the fat that has shrunk as a result of age and weight loss with hyaluronic acid gel, better known as filler or dermal filler.

 

Dermal Fillers

Anti Ageing: Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles with Dermal Fillers & Hyaluronic Acid. Restore and Repair Skin Tone.

 

Filler will allow you to put back the volume you’ve lost in a strategic way; cheeks can become plumper, cheekbones more defined, tear troughs can be re-volumised and smoothed, hollow temples can be improved, and thinning lips can have their plumpness restored.

What’s best anti ageing skincare for dull skin?

We love skin peels and the Byonik treatment for brightening up a dull skin and giving it a gorgeous glow. These two treatments are great for helping to improve other signs of skin ageing and some skin conditions such as redness, spots, wrinkles, scars and pigmentation but I haven’t wanted to overwhelm you with all there is to know about these treatments here; you can find out more about skin peels here and Byonik treatment here.

Chemical Peels

Different skin peels do different things for the skin, for example TCA peels can be great if you have wrinkles and sun damage you’d like to improve where as a Mandelic peel can help to improve the redness associated with a skin condition called Rosacea.

 

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels & Skincare Products: Active Anti Age Facial Serums to Boost Natural Glow.

 

Chemical peels all have one thing in common however, they deeply exfoliate the dead skin cells away from your skin; hello refreshed, glowing complexion. Even lines and wrinkles can look improved after having a skin peel!

 

Byonik with the Skin to love clinic

Byonik Skincare Products: Active Anti Age Facial Serums to Boost Your Skin Type Natural Glow

 

The Byonik treatment is a firm favourite with Skin to Love clients. It is a cold laser, which means that it does not use heat to help it achieve its results; this means that there’s no need for recovery time afterwards. During the treatment concentrated hyaluronic acid gels which are impregnated with strong antioxidants are applied to your skin-great for hydrating and plumping your skin, as well as protecting your skin cells from free radicals. Then various rounds of the Byonik laser is applied to your skin which has many benefits to your skin including improving your microcirculation which improves nutrient flow and strengthens your skin; improves lymphatic drainage to decongest your skin, reduce puffiness and improving general skin health.

Trust me when I say, the glow is real.

What’s best anti ageing skincare for enlarged pores?

A common misconception is that pores can open and close with the use of warm and cold water; our pores are not controlled by muscles which would allow them to do this. What can impact the appearance of pores is sebum (oil) production, so we often see enlarged pores and blackheads in an oily, acne prone skin as well as those of us with ageing skin; skin laxity can cause pores to appear more open and obvious. At Skin to Love we’re lucky to have the Gold Standard treatment for enlarged, open pores; Clear + Brilliant.

 

Clear and brilliant treatment

Clear+Brilliant Skincare & Anti Aging Products: Active Anti Age Facial Serums to Boost Your Skin Type Natural Glow

 

Dubbed the ‘Baby Fraxel’ this gentle laser treatment, from the makers of Fraxel, uses safe fractional laser-technology to improve several skincare concerns; from helping to prevent and correct early signs of skin ageing such as uneven pigmentation and fine lines to enlarged pores.

Clear and Brilliant works by creating millions of microscopic treatment channels in your skin, allowing your damaged, ageing skin cells to be replaced with new healthy, younger-looking tissue so that your skin is refined and refreshed from the inside out. Our patients report that their skin looks and feels younger with a renewed ‘glow’ and smoothness following Clear + Brilliant

If you have any questions about any of these treatments or would like to talk to our team about your skin, please contact us, we’d love to help.

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
