Turning back the clock to a time when your complexion was fresh and youthful does not have to mean undergoing invasive cosmetic procedures. In fact, there are a number of minimally invasive procedures and rejuvenating skin treatments that can restore your skin’s firmness without “going under the knife”. Here at Simply Laser, we offer a number of treatments that work to reduce wrinkles, pigmentation and saggy skin. But what anti aging treatment is right for you?
WHAT CAUSES AGING SKIN?
Our skin ages for many different reasons, however, there are a few key causes for aging skin.
- Intrinsic Aging. Also known as chronological aging, intrinsic aging is an inevitable process that naturally occurs as a result of hormonal shifts and the body’s inability to repair any damage. As we age, our skin cells slowly start to deteriorate and our skin becomes noticeably thinner and drier, causing visible lines and wrinkles. Our body also starts to produce less collagen as we age; the protein in the body that supports skin elasticity and firmness.
- Sun damage. Next to intrinsic aging, sun exposure is the biggest contributor to aging. The more we expose our skin to aging without proper sun protection, the more visible signs of aging will appear on our face, neck and decolletage. Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays at a young age can also cause the skin to age prematurely. The best way to prevent premature aging is to apply sunscreen liberally everyday. However, an anti aging treatment might help reverse signs of photoaging.
- Extrinsic Aging. This relates to environmental or external factors such as lifestyle, smoking, genetics, repetitive facial expressions and excessive alcohol consumption. These are all preventable factors that can magnify the intrinsic effects of aging.
BEST ANTI AGING TREATMENT FOR YOU
Our Dermapen microneedling treatment works to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, as well as the generation of new cells. The pen-like device uses fine, surgical-grade stainless steel needles to gently puncture the skin, causing tiny puncture wounds. This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, encouraging cell turnover and an increase in collagen and elastin production. Microneedling reverses the signs of aging by improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, plumping and firming the skin, and reducing the appearance of age spots. This anti aging treatment can also bean excellent preventative treatment to get in your 20s and early 30s, before any significant signs of aging appear.
LED LIGHT THERAPY
We recently introduced Dermalux LED Light Therapy to our treatment list at Simply Laser. While it’s not a physical treatment that requires topical creams and devices to penetrate the skin, not many people know just how effective LED light is as an anti aging treatment. Our Dermalux treatment is able to deliver three wavelengths – Blue, Red and Near Infrared. Each wavelength has a different effect on the skin, with the red focusing on anti aging benefits. The Rejuvenating Red Light (633nm wavelength) penetrates up to 8 millimetres into the skin and is absorbed by the cell’s mitochondria. This works to accelerate cell renewal and boost collagen and elastin production for smoother, firmer skin. LED Light Therapy can also be paired with other treatments to accelerate and further improve results.
Chemical Peels formulated with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids, (BHAs) help to correct issues such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and even acne. This anti aging treatment is a deep exfoliation that removes the outer layer of the skin (epidermis), leaving you with a smoother, more plump complexion. At Simply Laser, our chemical peels treat various skin conditions, but if you are looking for one that targets fine lines and wrinkles, then you have to try our Image Skincare Wrinkle Lift Forte chemical peel. This extra strength peel uses a blend of glycolic acid, retinol and botanical lighteners in an aloe vera gel base to repair and rejuvenate aging skin. After a series of treatments, you’ll see a visible reduction in wrinkle depth and appearance of fine lines.
DMK ENZYME THERAPY
Enzymes are living substances that aim to strengthen the structural integrity of the skin by stimulating collagen production and creating a healthy environment for cells to live and thrive in. As an anti aging treatment, our DMK Enzyme Therapy facial is a deep resurfacing treatment that brightens dull skin and smooths deep wrinkles. It works by applying the enzyme mask to your face, neck and d colletage, and leaving it on for roughly 45 minutes. During this time, the mask will harden and the natural enzymes will work to speed up the cellular processes within the skin. The mask induces a plasmatic effect by creating a ‘veiny’ pattern across the skin, which is a sign that your cells are delivering oxygenated blood and nutrients to the skin, while also improving lymphatic drainage and enhancing collagen production. Post-treatment, you’ll notice a reduced appearance of wrinkles, tighter and plumper skin.
