Skin Repair: The Biggest Beauty Breakthroughs in the Last 10 YearsAugust 3, 2015
The race for eternal youth and beauty is still on. New developments and improvements in the field have been reigning during the past decade. Great amounts of money are being spent on research and every year the treatments used for prolonging your youthful looks are more and more effective.
Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia is always on the lookout for the biggest breakthroughs in the world of beauty, so we can offer you highly effective treatments as soon as they leave the laboratories. “At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we’ve got over 400 beauty treatments designed specifically to suit your individual needs,” says Dr. Garry Cussell, owner of Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia.
We’ve compiled a list of 7 beauty breakthroughs that have scientifically proven results in helping you maintain a young and refreshed look for years to come.
1. Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
One of the biggest breakthroughs of the decade is the skin-resurfacing treatment known as CO2 fractional laser therapy.
This technology is based on the traditional carbon dioxide laser and guarantees the same spectacular results but without the abrasive side effects. This is possible due to a new application technique. It is revolutionary in the way that it requires no downtime and involves no complications after the treatment.
The fractional laser uses pulsating energy to create tiny holes in the skin, which stimulate the body’s collagen production. This is done using a method that prevents damage to the top layer of the skin, helping you to achieve best results quickly and without the convalescence period.
2. Injectable fillers
This is a practical treatment that lets you add volume anywhere you want on your face. So you’re able to sculpt your face lines without the actual surgery.
Plus, there is a significant difference between a facelift and injectable fillers: while the former pulls the skin (making it tight), the latter simply plumps the skin up giving it a natural and youthful look.
Injectable fillers usually are paired with wrinkle injections as the two treatments compliment each other perfectly.
Bonus: Wrinkle injections that contain h********c acid boost the body’s natural collagen production, adding to the durability of the filling effect. When deciding to use this method, you can count on the effects lasting up to one year.
3. Wrinkle Injections
Although this treatment started as a trend among the celebrities, today it is a very socially acceptable procedure. A solution is injected into individual muscles in and around the area that you want to improve. The injections contain a muscle-relaxing neurotoxin, which prevents skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. “The one thing that this procedure absolutely requires is the highest degree of precision and this is why you need an experienced and skilled injector to perform the treatment,” says Dr Cussell.
Wrinkle injections give you the freedom of specifically targeting the affected area. They work best for the “expression lines” of your face (forehead and crow’s feet around eyes) as well as the lines on your throat. If you decide to go forward with this treatment, be prepared that it takes from a few hours up to two weeks to see the full results of the procedure.
There has been more and more excitement about antioxidants.
Simple, over-the-counter cosmetics or supplements (such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene) contain antioxidants as one of their main ingredients. There has been so much hype about these products! They slow down the ageing process by fighting free radicals.
What are free radicals?
They are unstable molecules, which are influenced by sun exposure or pollution that damages the skin’s collagen.
In order to supply your body with the antioxidant properties, it is always better to pay attention to your diet rather than look for chemical supplements. Foods such as blueberries, grapes, nuts and dark green veggies are great sources of antioxidant molecules.
If you’re looking for reliable products that are stronger than simple cosmetics, think of SkinFit, which is a range of cosmaceuticals. Their ABC Restore Serum can do wonders for your skin. You can find this serum and other SkinFit products at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia.
5. Vitamin A
Retinoids is a common name for derivatives of vitamin A. In their concentrated form they are given as prescription treatments usually to treat acne but it turned out that they do marvels in refreshing your skin.
Their anti-ageing benefit comes from the fact that they stimulate collagen production and decrease collagen breakdown. Even though over-the-counter retinoids products are much weaker than prescription solutions, using a 0.4% retinol lotion on your skin a few times a week can bring a significant difference in the appearance of wrinkles when compared to lotions without retinol. If you interested in rejuvenating your skin with Vitamin A, a great starting point is Restore A+ from our SkinFit Range, which you will find at our clinic.
6. Anti-ageing sunscreens
You have probably heard countless number of times that sun is very damaging to your skin and that you should avoid sun exposure. However, have you hear about significant breakthroughs in sun protection? There is a new technology that boots the qualities of sunscreens.
Helioplex increases the effectiveness of sunscreens and Mexoryl SX (ecamsule) is a new protective agent. Both of them are designed to target the UVA rays directly, defending your skin against ageing. The long UVA rays (which are not filtered by the ozone layer, clouds or glass windows) damage the collagen and elastin contributing to your new wrinkles in a significant way.
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we offer Actinica® Lotion. This is a new generation SPF 50+ sunscreen with an advanced liposomal formula that gives you a breakthrough UVA & UVB protection. Actinica® Lotion keeps your skin hydrated, making sure that your skin is not only protected from the sun but also reinforced against atrophy.
7. Stem Cell Technology aka PRP
According to the stem cell theory, the ageing process is a matter of failure to replenish damaged tissues of an organism with cells capable of maintaining that organ’s original function.
This impairment occurs due to decreased number of stem cells, which contain two key components: growth factor and proteins. It is the combination of these two that helps to smooth existing wrinkles and slows the development of new lines. The ability to regenerate and create new cells in the body sparked an intense research into stem cells and today this technology is used in beauty products.
The PRP treatment is of specific fascination at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia. Dr. Cussell is impressed by the breakthrough technology on which this procedure is based. “The application of Stem Cell Technology in beauty treatments opened up a new area in the field of cosmetic medicine. This is how it looks when the future is finally at our door,” says Dr. Cussell.
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we offer 3 types of stem cell technology treatments:
PRP (derived from your own blood sample)
Stem Cells (derived from fat cells)
AAPE Growth Factors (Derived from human fat stem cells)
When buying cosmetics containing stem cells, do pay attention to their amount in the product – they should be listed first on the list of ingredients.
As you can see, there is plenty to choose from when wiping years away from your forehead. Considering the plethora of treatments, it is good to schedule a consultation appointment with a qualified medical doctor who is going to be able to match the ideal treatment that will suit your needs.
