Non Surgical Cosmetic Treatments Gold Coast
Non-Surgical Anti-Ageing Treatment Clinic at Hope Island
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatment
Left to its own devices, our skin loses elasticity over time, leading to undesired signs of aging. In the old days, plastic surgery was the go-to remedy. And while surgery is still an option, it’s no longer the only one. Today there are a wide variety of non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the face, neck, hands and more that can reduce signs of aging without the expense, discomfort and recovery time associated with surgical options. The results are subtler and more natural, so people are less likely to even realize you’ve had treatment done. Instead, they’ll just notice that you have a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
You and your doctor can work together to pick out the non-surgical cosmetic treatments that work best to address your particular needs—from minimizing crow’s feet using dermal fillers to increasing natural collagen production with skin peels.
Here are some of the most popular and effective treatments and products available to patients today:
Among the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments today are anti-wrinkle injections, which help minimize and even prevent facial wrinkles—especially frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet (around the eyes) and bunny lines (on and around the nose).
Unlike fillers, which literally help “fill in” lines and wrinkles, these injections work by relaxing facial muscles under the skin that cause the skin to form wrinkles in the first place and make them more visible later.
Because we tend to tense up these muscles without even realizing it, the injections can be enormously helpful in breaking that pattern while giving patients a more youthful, relaxed look. For some, they also have medical benefits such as treating migraine headaches.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick and relatively painless process, and most patients opt to return for new injections every few months for maximum effectiveness.
Dermal fillers fill lines and creases, plumping and even lifting the skin to achieve strikingly impressive results. Their overall effect is to restore lost volume in the skin to rejuvenate and restore to achieve long-lasting and natural-looking results.
Dermal fillers can help eliminate signs of wrinkles on the forehead and around the nose, mouth and jaw line/jowls. They are also effective on hands and any scars you might have. Other patients opt for dermal fillers as an effective way to improve eyebrow definition, firmness of the cheeks and chin, and even plump up lips (a popular look at any age).
Your doctor will talk with you about the many Therapeutic Good Administration-approved product options available today in dermal fillers in order to create the results you desire. While we are not allowed to advertise the specific products we offer, most are similar, gel-like substances that are derived from plants and help to attract and bind with water—returning moisture to the skin that we tend to lose over time. And skin that retains moisture is younger-looking, healthier skin.
More Options in Cosmetic Treatments
There are many wonderful cosmetic treatments available today that provide an inexpensive way to rejuvenate the skin in the least invasive way possible. Usable in combination with or in between other procedures like anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers—these can be done at almost any age.
These cosmetic treatments include:
Skin Peels. Skin peels involve the application of a topical solution that increases cell regeneration and stimulates collagen production. These treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne and acne scars, skin redness and uneven skin tone.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing. This non-ablative skin resurfacing process treats isolated areas of skin while leaving other areas untreated, kicking into gear your body’s natural healing process to produce new collagen and elastin while reducing age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven coloration and dulled skin tone on your face, neck and chest.
Mesotherapy. Therapeutic skin products that promise to reduce signs of aging usually fail because they are unable to penetrate the outer later of skin. Mesotherapy works through the injection of small quantities of vitamins and medicines directly to the source—the dermal layer of your skin. It can be used to effectively reduce signs of aging and skin flaws, as well as helping to dissolve stubborn fat cells and cellulite in the face, hands and neck.
Dermapen Advanced Skin Needling. Skin needling is a process designed to trigger the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it senses trauma. Dermapen advanced skin needling pierces the skin with tiny needles and an automatic vibrating function, signaling to your body it needs to produce new collagen thus repairing fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and sagging skin. It also creates tiny channels into your skin to help you better absorb topical therapie
Lipodissolve. Also known as lipozap, lipotherapy and other names, lipodissove is a procedure designed as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. While liposuction involves physically pulling fat out of the body, lipodissolve is the injection of a plant-derived chemical directly into fat deposits in order to break down and emulsify fat and cholesterol. It can also block signals of fat accumulation, signal your body to release stored fat and work with your natural metabolism to eliminate fat, especially when combined with diet and exercise.
What About Cosmetic Treatments For Men?
Increasingly, men are as interested in non-surgical cosmetic treatments to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin. Many of the procedures listed above are growing in popularity among men—especially anti-wrinkle injections, skin peels, and dermal fillers. Some men suffering from hyperhidrosis—or excessive sweating—can also benefit from treatments we offer when basic, preventative measures such as using a strong antiperspirant or wearing lighter weight, natural-fibre clothing are not enough to rectify the problem.
