It’s one of life’s crueller stunts, you’re finally on the property ladder, got your career in tow and a firm grip on your personal relationships but just as you’ve ‘got your act together’ your personal beauty loop decides to throw a spanner in the works.
You may think you already have all the keys to a fit and healthy lifestyle with regular gym visits, which incorporate cardio, a well-maintained diet and a relaxed mind. Your beauty regime may even be timed by the clock, but however interdependent such anti-ageing tips may be, fine lines, wrinkles and even crows’ feet can still creep up on you out of nowhere.
Hormones have one part to play in this natural process, while temporary vices that you partook in at a younger age may also have had their effect.
As the majority of hormonal changes take place around the age of 30 with reproductive hormone production decreasing in our thirties, resulting in hair loss and temperamental skin conditions, the production of the human growth hormone (HGH) decreases, halting collagen production in its tracks which makes way for duller and more saggy skin.
While average HGH levels are 800 around the age of 18-years-old, by 30 they can have already decreased to just 150. This is why adolescent acne may re-emerge in your thirties, brown patches of skin or age spots may appear and sagging skin may increase.
Don’t expect the tanning effects of that beach holiday you took ten years ago, when you sipped on cocktails and had the odd cigarette or two, to have been forgotten by your skin either. These vices, which may seem like distant memories of your twenties, will begin to show on your face more so as your hormones shift in growth levels, and can culminate in damaged, dry and further aged skin that you would expect without the drinking, tanning or smoking.
However, at Luxe Private Clinic we can keep you looking gorgeous throughout your thirties, forties and even sixties by offering completely non-invasive, successful anti-ageing skin treatments which can counter-act the affects of previous decades stopping the beauty erosion of your skin in its tracks.
Wrinkle injections and dermal fillers
Two similar treatments which target ageing in two distinct ways, our dermal filler and botox injection procedures are treatments which produce a more youthful appearance for skin almost immediately after treatment that can last months.
While our wrinkle injection treatment, which uses a carefully calculated amount of Botulinium toxin A, is injected to target the muscles responsible for causing the creases in skin which lead to deep wrinkles, our Dermal Filler formula works by encouraging skin to retain moisture, rehydrate and diminish the signs of aging through an injectable Juvederm formula.
While having a needle injected into the skin may seem like a discomforting procedure, our physicians are highly qualified, skilled and experienced in the use of this technology and offer an individually tailored service which works to your comfort levels producing an almost pain-free experience that will leave your skin looking more youthful, toned and naturally glowing than ever before.
Another method of restoring skin to its former smooth and younger appearance is our Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment which uses a diamond-encrusted application device to exfoliate around 20 micron of dead cells on the outermost layer of skin.
A quick treatment which produces effective results gradually, this procedure is proven to kick start the regeneration process, thickening skin and produces similar effects to the more intrusive chemical peels and laser treatments which can be painful and discomforting.
RF Skin tightening
Combining the techniques used in two separate procedures, our skin tightening treatment uses both heat and radio frequencies to tighten and reduce the sagging appearance of skin on both the face and body – it has also been proven to be effective in the reduction of cellulite.
Stimulating the redevelopment of collagen fibres in the skin in a more organised structure, this treatment can reduce fine, lines, wrinkles while giving skin a plumper and firmer feel for that young, fresh and healthy appearance with long lasting results.
Age spot removal
If you are suffering from brown spots or patches of discolouration on your skin, this isn’t always the result of ageing, but could be a consequence of prolonged exposure to sunlight and UV rays.
While it is always nice to have retrospect and suggest that the best cure for age spots is prevention, there are always moments where the effects have already taken place.
When this is the case our age spot removal treatment can help which works by using a laser to remove the pigmented lesions and destroy the pigment present within the skin.
This treatment is applicable for use on areas of the body other than the face including back, hands, shoulders and feet and can be used on patches of various sizes.
As always it is vital to ensure that you keep your body as free of toxins and harmful ingredients and exposures as possible to maintain healthy younger looking skin, because what you put into your body can have a vast effect on the outside of it.
