What Skin Treatments are Best for Anti-Ageing?

What Skin Treatments are Best for Anti-Ageing?

As we approach our mid-life, the signs of ageing become more prominent, and we start to notice that youthful glow we once had is starting to diminish. While ageing is a natural part of life, there are gentle and effective ways to slow down this process, allowing us to embrace our years with grace and confidence. 

For women, the onset of menopause marks a significant decline, with potential losses of up to
30% in collagen production within the initial 5 years.

As time progresses, the skin’s inherent capacity to maintain moisture and suppleness decreases, alongside a reduction in facial volume and definition. 

The skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and oil diminishes, compounded by cellular deterioration stemming from various environmental and internal stressors. 

Taking a proactive approach to ageing is key. Incorporating advanced treatments to stimulate the body’s natural collagen synthesis process slows the appearance of ageing-related concerns.

5 anti-ageing skin treatments for a youthful appearance

There are many anti-ageing treatments out there, each with its own recovery times, and benefits. 

The best option depends on your skin type, concerns you have, and what you’re hoping to achieve.

1. CO2 laser skin resurfacing to boost collagen and reduce wrinkles

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a precise, controlled, and tailored treatment based on your skin’s needs and condition. The procedure uses laser energy to dramatically rejuvenate the face by causing ablation and coagulation at targeted levels in the skin. It is particularly beneficial for those living in Australia, where a significant amount of sun exposure is accumulated throughout our lives.

But the benefits go beyond immediate results. 

CO2 laser resurfacing also stimulates collagen production. This leads to firmer and more youthful skin over time, making it a good choice for those with uneven skin texture and elastosis

Here’s what to expect:

  • Downtime: 5 to 7 days, depending on your treatment and post-treatment routine. Some patients experience redness even after a month.
  • Results: You’ll see the difference in just a few weeks, with continued improvement over time.
  • Treatments: Typically just one treatment is needed, though deeper concerns may require a couple of sessions. Consult with an expert to determine your specific needs.

2. FaceTite to melt fat and achieve tighter skin

FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to heat up your skin from the inside. 

This heat does two things: it melts away unwanted fat in targeted areas and stimulates your body’s ability to produce more collagen, which is responsible for keeping your skin firm and smooth.

This new non-surgical treatment is becoming widely popular because it helps tighten the area around the face and neck, or areas that look a bit loose. It’s also popular due to the amazing results and minimal downtime, compared to a surgical facelift.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Downtime: Minimal compared to traditional surgery. Expect some swelling and tenderness for about a week, but most people are back to their normal activities within a few days.
  • Results: Visible skin firming and contouring can be noticed immediately. Full benefits peak at 6-12 months as new collagen forms.
  • Treatments: Generally, a single session is all it takes to achieve noticeable results. It’s a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

3. Morpheus8 RF Micro Needling – to improve skin’s firmness and texture

A woman undergoing a Morpheus8 treatment, a popular procedure for those researching what skin treatments are best for anti-aging.

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling may sound intense, but it’s actually an effective way to facilitate skin rejuvenation.

Radiofrequency (RF) energy uses an electric current to heat and stimulate the skin, while microneedling triggers skin healing through micro-injuries. 

Fusing both, Morpheus8 is able to better stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The purpose is to tighten the skin, improve lines and wrinkles, treat acne scarring, improve skin quality, reduce pore size, and treat post-surgical scars and stretch marks. 

One thing to remember though is that Morpheus 8 isn’t a one-off fix. To see the best results, you’ll need a series of sessions, typically 3 treatments every four weeks.

The team at Ascension Cosmetic Medicine have introduced a breakthrough treatment to revolutionise the process of renewing and revitalising your skin. Combining the Morpheus8 treatment with ASCE+ Exosomes, the latest breakthrough in skin regeneration, this combo is the future of non-invasive skin treatments.

Exosomes are a type of extracellular vesicle (tiny fluid sack) packed with peptides, coenzymes, minerals, amino acids, and vitamins that act as a messenger between skin cells.

This revolutionary pairing is the latest breakthrough in clinically proven skin rejuvenation, and the best part is, it’s suitable for all skin types.

The combination of exosome therapy with Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment, or any disruptive facial or scalp treatment that creates tiny micro channels, has shown amazing benefits for reducing downtime and inflammation, promoting collagen remodelling and in turn improving skin tone and texture.

Enhanced collagen production by up to 690%, reduced inflammation, and an improvement to pore size, skin texture, dryness and tone are noted as some of the key benefits of ASCE+ for skin rejuvenation.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Downtime:  You can expect some redness and minor discomfort, generally only lasting a day or two. 
  • Results: Immediate improvements might be subtle, but give it a few weeks. You’ll have a smoother skin texture, reduced fine lines, and plump skin.
  • Treatments: desired outcomes will determine how many treatments are required but initially 3 treatments, every four weeks.

4. Ultraformer MPT – using HIFU for skin tightening and lifting

With the promise of achieving a youthful radiance without the need for surgical interventions, advanced technologies such as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) have attracted significant acclaim due to their ability to stimulate collagen and combat the signs of ageing.

Ultraformer MPT is the latest advancement in non-invasive collagen stimulation and fat reduction. Using the very latest in high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology, it’s a versatile non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound waves to instantly lift and tighten skin, selectively reduce fat, and fight various signs of ageing.

Standing for Micro Pulsed Technology (MPT), the Ultraformer MPT harnesses the power of MMFU (Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound) energy, to deliver superimposed energy deep into the skin, triggering the synthesis of collagen and elastin.

By generating a thermal effect, this process jump-starts your body’s natural ability to create new collagen for firming and toning results.

This state-of-the-art technology can also target and destroy fat cells in key areas such as the jowls, nasolabial folds and under the chin. By precisely targeting unwanted fat and simultaneously tightening the skin, Ultraformer  MPT offers safe and effective facial sculpting and rejuvenation.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Downtime: Little to none! You may experience some slight redness and swelling post-treatment but will completely disappear in a few hours. 
  • Results: Facial lifting, skin tightening, overall rejuvenation and contouring of the jowls, nasolabial fat pockets chin and jawline, which are long-lasting.  
  • Treatments: 1-3 treatments per year to maintain results.

5. Rejuran – to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines

Rejuran treatment products, including syringes, frequently mentioned in discussions about what skin treatments are best for anti-aging.

Apart from wrinkles, ageing often introduces changes in skin texture, enlarged pores, under-eye hollows, dark circles, and a general loss of radiance.

Now, a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that’s widely popular and successful across Asia is making its debut in Australia. Rejuran is leading a new era in bio-regeneration, setting a new standard beyond traditional anti-ageing therapies.

So what is Rejuran? 

Rejuran uses Polynucleotide (PN) technology, a substance derived from wild salmon using DNA Optimising Technology. Rejuran is injected into the dermis to effectively stimulate natural collagen production, helping you restore your youthful glow.

You’ll notice an improvement in skin elasticity, hydration and visible reduction in fine lines and pore size – all thanks to Rejuran kickstarting the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.

Designed especially to rejuvenate the under-eye area, smoothing out depressions and adding volume to sunken areas, Rejuran I (eye) stimulates collagen production and improves skin elasticity to reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Downtime: You might encounter some redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these minor inconveniences usually fade within a few days.
  • Results: Naturally revitalises and hydrates the skin through collagen production, improved skin tone and texture with long lasting results as it stimulates the skin’s natural collagen regeneration. 
  • Treatments: It is recommended to begin with 3 treatments, four weeks apart. 1-2 treatments per year are required for maintenance. 

Why does your skin age (aside from obvious reasons)?

There’s more to ageing skin than just ticking years. 

Here are some surprising factors that can speed up the process:

  • Genes: Your family’s skin history plays a big part in how your skin ages. This is called “intrinsic ageing” and it determines how quickly wrinkles might appear or how firm your skin stays as you get older.
  • Sun exposure: Too much sun is a large reason skin prematurely ages. UV Rays degrade the skin’s collagen and elastin resulting in more fine lines and wrinkles, skin sagging, sun spots, redness and a higher risk of skin cancers.
  • Pollution and toxins: Pollutants accelerate skin ageing by breaking down collagen and elastin. They can also cause inflammation and free radical damage, leading to wrinkles, rough texture, and discolouration.
  • Lifestyle choices: Smoking restricts blood flow to your skin, and too much alcohol can lead to skin dryness. Neither is a recipe for youthful skin.
  • Stress: In stressful situations, your body releases cortisol, which can degrade collagen and elastin (the fibres that keep your skin looking firm and youthful).
  • Poor nutrition: Not eating enough healthy food can make it harder for your skin to repair itself and fight ageing.
  • Sleep deprivation: Not getting enough sleep can impair your body’s ability to regenerate resulting in premature ageing and your skin looking dull. 
  • Blue light exposure: Staring at your phone or computer can also age your skin. Screens emit blue light, which can lead to premature ageing via  breakdown of collagen.
