Here we discuss some of the most effective anti ageing solutions to choose from!
5 Of The Most Effective Anti Ageing Solutions
Coming to terms with the sudden appearance of, for example, fine lines and wrinkles, may be tricky, but you most definitely do not have to live with them if they begin to worry you or have an impact on your confidence. With the constant introduction of new technology promised to be more effective than the previous version, we’re overflowing with ways to put ageing on hold for the time being.
Whether you are seeking a long-term or semi-permanent treatment to reduce your signs of ageing, there is an option for you, so keep reading to uncover our favourite procedures for guaranteed positive results!
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a well-loved treatment in Hollywood, many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian swear by it to maintain their youthful, radiant look.
Over time, your skin starts to lose elasticity, which is the main reason why with age, areas such as the jawline begin to droop and form what is known as ‘jowls’. Microneedling uses a roller-like device which is filled with minuscule needles, small enough to just slightly pinprick the skin without causing any damage to any of its layers. Pinpricking the skin naturally encourages the skin to speed up its production of collagen. Collagen is a protein in the skin which makes it plump, the younger the skin, the more collagen that is produced, which is why no lines or wrinkles are visible. The production of collagen slows down with age, which is why you start to see fine lines and wrinkles appear as you get older.
As one of the main features of microneedling is the production of collagen, it becomes a highly effective anti-ageing treatment. The skin will, over time, start to restore its plumpness and elasticity, therefore smoothing out any lines and wrinkles and contouring the face, removing sagging areas. You will see immediate results after your micro needling appointment, the skin will look rejuvenated, but it may take up to six weeks to see ageing signs start to fade away.
PDO Thread Lift
The PDO thread lift is a relatively new, innovate anti-ageing solution and is a very minor form of surgery meaning it must be done by a medically trained practitioner.
Both PDO thread face lifts and PDO thread neck lifts are available depending on the area in which you think ageing is most prominent or on the other hand, you can get both areas at once if both concern you. Small barbed threads will be inserted under the skin using a needle-type insertion tool. The threads stimulate the reproduction of soft tissue which will form structured around the threads, holding the face in its new lifted position. Once the face is secured in its new contoured position, the threads will be naturally dissolved by the body with results lasting for up to three years.
Only one single PDO thread lift procedure is required to achieve full results, but can be repeated later on down the line when the results have worn off.
The GeneO+ facial is a very gentle, relaxing anti-ageing solution and involves no forms of surgical procedures. Although you will need to book in an appointment every few months to maintain full results, treatments are affordable and only take around an hour.
GeneO+ facials feed the skin of essential nutrients that are often lost over time, encourages production of collagen and tightens the skin. There are many steps that contribute to the deep exfoliation facial and techniques using heat, light and ultrasound waves are used.
One of the main factors of the GeneO+ facial is skin oxygenation, which is the main way that tissue reproduction is stimulated, similarly to the soft tissue formed during a PDO thread lift. Oxygenation helps blood to flow quickly through the skin, helping to produce more collagen and restore elasticity. Most GeneO+ facials end with the application of a gold collagen mask, which helps to reduce the signs of wrinkles.
Botox is one of the most popular anti-ageing solutions, it’s the common ‘go-to’ to remove wrinkles and is known worldwide for its positive long-lasting results. If you are particularly worried about the appearance of issues such as frown lines, smile lines or brow furrows, Botox would work perfectly for you. It targets specific problem areas rather than treating the whole face.
During a Botox appointment, small doses of a protein called Botulinum Toxin is injected into the skin, which relaxes the muscle and stops nerve activity in that particular area, temporarily stopping muscle activity. During the period in which the muscle is relaxed, the skin has time to smooth out any wrinkles or lines. This is why, for example, when people have botox on the forehead area, they can frown and raise their eyebrows but no lines appear.
To maintain the results achieved through botox, you will need to book in for regular appointments every four months or so.
We thought that we would end with an easy to manage anti-ageing solution, which includes simply adding a few extra steps to your skincare routine.
Spend some time each week having a thorough pampering of your skin. Run a hot bubble bath, deeply exfoliate the skin and then apply a hydrating face mask. Dead skin cells make the skin appear dull, which accentuates the appearance of ageing, ensuring that you regularly remove all dead skin will make your skin look rejuvenated with a natural glow.
Always make sure that you apply suncream to your face before putting on makeup, particularly in the warmer months and be wary of overcast days. Extensive exposure to the sun and its damaging UV rays increase the likelihood of pigmentation forming. Pigmentation causes age spots and wrinkles, both noticeable signs of ageing. We suggest opting for a foundation which includes an SPF when you next need to restock!
