The Best Facial Treatments For Aged Skin

For many of us, a little too much time in the sun, genetics, or age has affected our skin, leaving it looking a little lacklustre from its once youthful and glowing appearance.

No matter how many expensive serums, lotions, or oils you use, it seems impossible to get rid of those pesky laugh lines, age spots, or uneven skin you would so desperately like to fix. 

While having a home skincare routine is crucial to looking after your skin, there are many treatments performed both through a practising surgeon or skin clinics across Australia that can help reduce the signs of aging and have you feeling confident with the appearance of your skin! 

Laser Skin Resurfacing 

If your skin is aged, blotchy, scarred, or has deep wrinkles – laser skin resurfacing is for you. Laser skin resurfacing works by removing layers of skin which allow the new skin cells to form during the healing process, giving the skin a tighter and more youthful surface. This particular treatment is practised by a plastic surgeon, with the patient under anesthesia and usually lasts between 10 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how much of the face is treated and how deep the scarring or wrinkles are. 

If you are wanting your new skin to be glowing by a particular event or time, you should allow 7-10 days to recover. In the initial days after the treatment, your skin will be slightly tender and pink on the surface. Once the healing process is over your skin will be tighter and you’ll have a noticeably clearer complexion (yay)! 

The cost of laser skin resurfacing varies depending on each individual and their skin type, but you will be looking to pay anywhere between $2,500 – $4,000.

Skin Tightening 

Skin tightening is a treatment that helps smooth lines and improve the overall texture of your skin. This particular treatment is done at laser clinics across Australia and is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and assist with the regeneration of damaged skin cells. 

After treatment, your skin will be red and feel quite hot. This is totally normal and will subside within 3-4 hours. After treatment, it is important you keep your skin cool and hydrated to optimise the results as the collagen fibers recover. 

Again, there is no one price that fits all, but you can be paying anywhere from $200-$3,000. It is also important to remember this treatment is not an instant fix and may take a few treatments over an extended time to see the results you desire. 

Anti-wrinkle injections 

Wrinkles naturally form on our face as we age due to sun exposure, skin getting thinner and dryer, and the natural loss of elastin. There is good news though, these lines don’t have to be permanently embedded into your skin. With anti-wrinkle injections, we can reduce the look of lines and prevent wrinkles from forming.

This is probably the most affordable and commonly used procedure to treat aged skin. Anti-wrinkle injections work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles in the face. By decreasing movement in the muscle places, there is less stress on the skin, which gives it a fresher complexion. 

After treatment, you may feel mild swelling and tenderness around the injected area. You probably won’t notice any instant results as it can often take 2-7 days for your skin to show an improvement. The full effect of the procedure will be visible after 2 weeks, so book it into your calendar nice and early before any exciting events.  

In Australia, most providers will charge by unit. This price can vary between $8 to $25 dollars per unit. The cost of botox varies depending on each individual’s face and the desired results they are after. It is hard to give a standard price that fits everyone, but you are likely to be spending anywhere between $250 to $400. 

Treatments can be quite costly for clients, but with a payment plan that is safe and secure, anyone can receive the treatment they desire!
