Anti-ageing Treatments Sunshine Coast
LED light and skin rejuvenation therapy
At our Maroochydore cosmetic and skin clinic, we’ve experience firsthand that it’s never too late to help save your skin. We offer a range of advanced treatments, such as dermal needling and LED light therapy, which we’ve seen have amazing results in anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation.
Majority of our skin’s changes due to ageing are a result of the sun’s UVB and UVA rays, also known as the tanning rays. These penetrate both the external and internal layers of the skin and are responsible for loss of elasticity (wrinkles), sagging skin, yellowish discolourations and pigmentations. The most concerning aspect of sun damage to the skin is an increased risk of skin cancer. When the UVB rays penetrate the superficial layers of the skin, it often causes sunburn, redness and plays an integral role in the development of skin cancer.
We provide a complete range of anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatment at our Sunshine Coast clinic to enhance your skin after experiencing sun damage and to prevent premature ageing. These treatments include:
Tips for Reducing your Risk of Sun Damage and Slowing Down the Ageing Process
Face & Body Checks
An annual full face and body check is imperative to reduce the risk of sun damage. We recommend seeing your doctor if you notice a freckle, mole or lump that’s new or changing shape, colour or size or if you notice a sore that doesn’t heal.
Protection and Prevention
To help protect yourself against and prevent sun damage to your skin, ensure you apply sunscreen daily and wear protective clothing, a hat and sunscreen when outdoors. You should also minimise exposure to the sun between 10:00am and 4:00pm and utilise the SunSmart app for ultimate protection. Regardless of the measures you take to protect your skin, attend a skin review with your doctor on an annual basis, at minimum.
Jessner peels are a combination of chemical exfoliants used primarily to improve skin conditions such as Hormonal pigmentation, Acne scarring, congestion and to minimise the appearance of enlarge pores.
TCA or Trichloroacetic acid is a specific formulation used to resurface and rejuvinate sun damage, pigment and mature skin types.
Dermal Needling with Stem Cell, GF & Cytokines
Visibly reduces the signs of ageing, including wrinkles, redness, sagging and brown spots.
Your skin works hard to protect you ever day. While our skin is young, our naturally occurring stem cells are robust and responsive, keeping the skin smooth, elastic and radiant. As we age, our number of stem cells used to repair skin damage reduces. Over time, this damage accumulates, and our skin health deteriorates.
Dermal needling is widely used for skin rejuvenation, usually using a hyaluronic serum to provide hydration and allow the needles to glide easily over the skin. The other option is to use your own plasma PRP (platelet rich plasma).
Platelets contain fibroblasts, which can be significantly inflammatory to tissue and do not produce high levels of growth factors compared to stem cells. The quality of the plasma/platelets can also vary depending on the age/health of a person.
Performing dermal needling with stem cells in a hyaluronic serum quickly quenches inflammation, providing rapid re-hydration to the upper layers of the skin, all while providing healing growth factors to reduce the signs of ageing.
The stem cell products contain no cells or cell remnants. They are removed during ultrafiltration, the final step in the laboratory culture process.
Common treatment areas:
Time: 90 minutes
Downtime: Minimal to none.
Combine this treatment with:
Sublative Texture, Pore, Tightening, Acne Treatment
The Sublative treatment delivers medium-to-deep heating of the skin, activating fibroblasts (deep skin cells), which signals for the formation of new collagen and prompting existing collagen to tighten.
This treatment results in improved skin tone and texture occurring over a four to six-month period. The issue of the untreated areas is supported, which accelerates the healing process of the skin.
Sublime Contour & Lifting
The Sublime treatment uses the combination of light energy and radiofrequency energy to deeply heat the layers of the skin, while simultaneously protecting the surface of the skin. By heating these layers, it stimulates the formation of collagen and firming of existing collagen, in conjunction with enhancing skin texture.
LED Light Therapy
Ageing and injury to the skin can leave it looking dull and wrinkled with an uneven tone. So, to help create more radiating, glowing skin texture, non-invasive LED light therapy works to heal and rejuvenate at a cellular layer. The soothing, deep penetrating LED lights target deep into cells, increasing their internal functions, dermal blood flow and to create faster healing so your skin looks fresh and rejuvenated.
Various skin conditions can be aided with one or a combination of different colours/wavelengths.
Procedure: 15 to 30 minutes.
Results: Achieved in 4 to 6 sessions.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
Living under the Australian sun can result in mild-to-severe sun damage, which can give an aged appearance to the skin, including:
This treatment can bring new life to not only the face, but hard to treat areas, such as the:
Younger skin with acne, large pores or which is oily can also benefit from PDT in conjunction with other treatment.
A light-sensitive substance (made naturally by the human body) is applied to the affected area. When applied to the skin, this substance is absorbed only into the abnormal or damaged cells. After a period of time, the area being treated is placed under an LED light and the abnormal cells are destroyed.
SSR Skin Rejuvenation
Changing the health and wellbeing of our skin has taken a new meaning with SSR Skin Rejuvenation. This technology has 3 times more energy than regular IPL—and it’s painless!
That’s right; no pain. Just results.
In addition to helping improve uneven skin colour, sun damage, facial redness, acne and pigmentation, the heat energy stimulates new collagen production beneath the skin surface. This remodels the collagen, firming the skin and helping to shrink the pores.
After a series of treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart, you should notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and more luminous, brighter and smoother skin.
Skin rejuvenation has an accumulative effect and can continue to rebuild collagen for 3 months after your last treatment, extending the full effect.
This treatment can be combined with a 20% Lactic Peel.
Can be used to help treat:
Hair Removal Treatment
SHR is acronym for “Super Hair Removal”.
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a revolutionary IN-Motion™ technology in permanent hair reduction. It’s a much safer and faster method than traditional IPL and laser treatment. The IN-Motion™ technology gently warms the skin and penetrates the energy down into the follicles at cooler temperatures than traditional IPL treatments. 50% is transported to the hair root through short pulses of energy via the melanin in the hair follicle and 50% from the IN-Motion™ technology using multiple shots at low joules (low joules energy with higher rate of repetition).
The cooler temperatures of this revolutionary technology help to make this a safe, pain-free method of hair reduction.
You may experience some tingling or warming sensation as the SHR arm is passed over treatment areas.
