Let’s face it - no one wants to look old. We all want to be our best selves, both inside and out and often, feeling good about ourselves in general, starts with looking refreshed, healthy and youthful.
In my area of expertise, there is a wide range of Cosmetic Surgery as well as non-surgical treatments to assist you with looking more youthful. Cosmetic procedures and treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, can certainly help you look younger, but these need to be supported by a number of simple strategies which people often neglect. The first of these (and possibly one of the most effective anti-ageing “treatments” available), is protection from the harsh Australian sun. Sun damage can definitely age us prematurely and a good quality SPF, therefore, is a must. And just remember that not all SPF’s are created equal, so make sure you ask for advice from a medical professional to get the best SPF product for your skin.
The second support for your skin is a regular skin care routine at home. This is essential for assisting and maintaining a youthful complexion – it will also ensure that you get the maximum benefit from any cosmetic treatments you have. Don’t be tempted to throw on just any old cream or lotion you see on special at your local supermarket or something you’ve seen advertised on TV as the ‘latest thing’. There are great cosmeceutical (medical grade) skin care products available in clinic that are backed by clinical trials which show real results. You need products which have active ingredients that create positive change in your skin, that nourish, protect and revitalise.
There are a host of non-surgical treatments that help to keep you looking younger. These include fillers and wrinkle-reducing injections, lasers, Plate Rich Plasma (‘vampire facials’), skin needling, medical grade chemical peels and so on.
For some concerns, nothing replaces surgery. For example, if your face is at the point where you have a lot of sagging and loose skin and you have that exhausted look about you, a cosmetic facelift procedure will give you back that youthful refreshed look that no non-surgical treatment can achieve. And then you can combine surgical and non-surgical procedures and treatments…
Confused? Well, that's because there is no one answer for everyone. And, as a consumer, it is really difficult for you to know what's right for you as there are so many options out there and, despite the flash marketing, some of the offerings just don’t achieve much at all!
I generally find people need a combination of treatments and, at our clinic, we offer an individualised treatment plan for our patients. There is no one treatment to sort-everything-out-for-everyone. That's just not realistic. But discovering what treatments suit you and which ones provide the most benefit for your individual concerns can be very rewarding. And will certainly help you on the path to a more youthful-looking you.
We achieve fabulous results in this area, and we have many happy patients. I suggest you do a bit of research - consult suitably qualified specialists, and, as a general rule, if it sounds too good (or cheap) to be true, it usually is.
Hope this helps.
