The 5 Best Non Surgical Anti-Ageing Treatments

If you’ve noticed a few more wrinkles or an increase in fine lines, it could be time to consider an anti-ageing treatment. Like many things, when it comes to the signs of ageing the faster you react, the easier it is to keep them at bay.

But which anti-ageing treatment is best for you? Keep reading to discover our top 5 anti-ageing skin treatments and what they can do for you…

HIFU Facial

Best for?

Mild to moderate wrinkles, lines and sagging.

What is it?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary non-surgical, skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound technology to boost collagen production and reduce the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.

How does it work?

HIFU facials are really quite exciting because they tap into your body’s own natural ability to regenerate and stimulates the creation of smoother, firmer younger-looking skin.

The HIFU is directed into the deeper layers of your skin. Here it heats up the cells and instructs your body to start making more collagen and elastin – the cells that give your skin its strength and elasticity.

Over the following weeks, as these new cells develop, wrinkles and fine lines will become less noticeable. Your skin will start to look firmer, smoother and gently “lifted”.

Does it hurt?

HIFU is an advanced aesthetic treatment that works deeply into your skin. It is quite an intense treatment with some mild to moderate discomfort at certain spots during the procedure. You can experience some redness, mild swelling, some tenderness and sensitivity. However, you can apply makeup immediately after and continue with your normal routine following the treatment.

When do you see results?

You might notice some difference immediately, but the real results become visible within 2-3 months, as your skin creates the new, stronger collagen.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Exilis Elite

Best for?

Mild to moderate wrinkles, lines and sagging.

What is it?

Exilis Elite is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment used to tighten your skin and reduce wrinkles and sagging. Similar to HIFU, this treatment harnesses your body’s own natural ability to regenerate and produce healthy, younger skin.

How does it work?

During the treatment radio frequency and ultrasound, energies are directed into the superficial layers of your skin where they generate heat. This causes old collagen and elastin fibres to start to break down and stimulates your body to start producing new cells. These new cells are healthier and stronger – giving your skin more strength, reducing wrinkles and giving you a younger-looking appearance.

Does it hurt?

Exilis Elite is a completely pain-free experience. You might feel some heat during the treatment – similar to a hot stone massage. There’s no recovery period and you can continue with your usual routine right away.

When do you see results? Results start showing within 2-3 months, once your skin has had time to create the new cells. You’ll continue to see a gradual improvement in your skin condition for up to 6 months.

Microneedling

Best for?

Mild lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, pigmentation and acne scarring. Microneedling is also great for rejuvenating dull, lifeless skin.

What is it?

Microneedling is a very popular non-surgical treatment that can revive dull, lacklustre skin and regenerate collagen cells to give you a smoother, firmer and younger-looking appearance. It is great for treating skin concerns such as those listed above.

How does it work?

During a Microneedling treatment, we use a small mechanical pen device to make tiny punctures in your skin. These minuscule “holes” signal to the body that an “injury” has occurred and induce a natural healing response. This healing response results in your body creating more collagen, elastin and growth factors that make your skin stronger, firmer and younger.

Does it hurt?

Microneedling is a comfortable treatment that’s well tolerated by most people. Before the skin needling begins we apply an anaesthetic cream to help numb the area and keep you comfortable throughout. There’s the minimal recovery time following the treatment but you will need to avoid applying makeup for at least 24 hours, and refrain from intense exercise, swimming, sweating and certain product for 3-5 days.

When do you see results?

Your body starts the regeneration process immediately following treatment, however it usually takes 3-4 weeks for the results to become visible. A course of 3-6, monthly treatments are required.

Chemical Peels

Best for?

Reducing the signs of ageing, pigmentation, acne, acne scarring and dull looking skin.

What is it?

Chemical Skin Peels are a topical treatment that can be used to reduce wrinkles and give you clearer, more radiant skin. Skin peels are performed at a range of depths, making them a great anti-ageing treatment because they can be tailored to suit your own unique needs.

How does it work?

Chemical Peels work by using specific acids, or combinations of acids, that react with the proteins in your skin. This causes the skin to peel creating an exfoliation effect. Peels also work deep into the skin to aid in repair and regeneration from a cellular level.

For anti-ageing or wrinkle reduction, you’ll need a medium or deep peel. This exfoliates dead skin cells and also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to give your firmer skin and fewer wrinkles.

Does it hurt?

Chemical Peels might sound a little harsh, but they are generally well tolerated. Depending on the type of peel you may experience sensations such as heat, flushing and irritation.

When do you see results?

Depending on the depth of your peel your skin may have some redness for a 24-48 hours post treatment. The whole healing process usually takes between 5-10 days to complete, with your skin looking more radiant immediately and the anti-ageing results visible in 3-6 weeks.

What is it?

Why have we created the 12 Month Ultimate Rejuvenation Plan?

We want you to achieve the very best possible results through our non-surgical treatments in the most affordable way possible.

Too often clients come to see us wanting to have “x” treatment to help them look younger but when we assess their skin we know that to get an even better result they would benefit from a combination of different treatments and homecare products to prepare, repair and then treat the skin. But for some people, the total cost of this can be prohibitive.

By creating a membership programme it allows us to do whatever it takes to solve your skin problems and keep you looking younger, fresher and firmer, without you or us worrying about the cost of treatments.

When you commit to a 12-month membership we will assess, prescribe and tweak your programme over this time as your skin improves and changes.

You will benefit from all of our very best facial treatments without ever having to worry about the individual costs of these treatments or courses. Everything is included, we even include your skincare.*
