Top 5 Cosmetic Treatments for Aging Skin

Battling the clock

The most fundamental way to prevent wrinkles is sun protection! However wrinkles are also caused by uncontrollable factors such as genes, and repetitive muscle movements. A whole range of over the counter products claim to reduce wrinkles, but research has shown that these are the top 5 cosmetic treatments for aging skin when we’re battling the clock!

Battling the clock

1. Head to toe facials: your session may start with a gentle laser treatment which encourages new collagen, followed by a peel using calming essence of lavender. A serum is then applied that helps to build more collagen, and illuminated with a low-energy light to slow its breakdown. A rich cream laced with tremella mushroom extract ensures skin looks radiant and dewy immediately, and the increase in collagen is long lasting.

2. Chemical peels: removing outer layers of skin and encouraging new growth with a chemical peel can help with wrinkles, scars, age spots, skin discolouration, and dull texture. The benefits of superficial chemical peels last for about a month, and deep peels have results that may last for several years.

3. Zit killer: this shot of cortisone can shrink large spots within 48 hours, reducing redness and swelling, and apart from a slight scabbing, there are no after effects. Injectable cortisone is synthetically produced, and is designed to act more potently and for longer. Where inflammation is an underlying problem a cortisone shot can produce an immediate relief that can last for several weeks.

4. Microdermabrasion: a hard diamond tipped wand is used to slough off cells and encourage new skin growth. The procedure is usually pain-free and the skin heals quickly. The effects last between three and five days, and then another treatment is needed to remove the top dead cells that have quickly regenerated.

5. Dermal filler: injections of fillers containing hyaluronic acid help fill in fine lines and wrinkles, and add volume to the skin, as the naturally occurring sugar that gets lost with age and is found in the acid plumps up affected areas. Effects generally last between six months to a year.

To summarise…

Chemical peels Glasgow experts recommend them as an efficient non-invasive skin treatment. Luxe Skin therapists from Dr Q explain that they’re essentially a resurfacing treatment that stimulates the skin cells to maintain hydration, reduce inflammation, and increase cell turnover to result in younger looking skin.

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
