Australia’s harsh climate can damage your skin and cause premature ageing. Even if you wear a sunblock and take care to stay out of the sun, you may find that your skin and face are looking worse for wear. While the doctors we support don’t know of any miracle cures for ageing, they can help you delay the hands of time.
Your doctor can support you to keep your skin looking younger for longer with a range of non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Call today to schedule an appointment with your doctor.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP or “the vampire facial,” is an innovative technique that uses your body’s own healing factors to stimulate skin growth. PRP started out as a therapeutic method for sports injuries, where it helped accelerate healing of notoriously long-term tendon and ligament tears and sprains.
The PRP process is simple: Your clinician will take a sample of your blood and process it to remove impurities and leave behind the essential healing factors. They will then numb your face and inject the plasma into areas that need special attention. The factors will start to work and cause your skin to begin healing—reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, and producing younger, more radiant skin.
The leading cause of wrinkles is the absence of collagen, which controls your skin’s elasticity. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, resulting in thinner, more brittle skin. As you move your facial muscles, this skin folds in a certain way, resulting in wrinkles that get deeper over time.
Anti-wrinkle injections like Botox temporarily paralyse your facial muscles, allowing your skin to recover from the constant folding. As your muscles stay still, your skin will tighten, and you’ll notice the lines becoming finer and fainter.
Prevention is better than cure, and anti-ageing treatments help preserve your skin’s condition for longer. Anti-aging isn’t just about skincare; the doctors we support also offer comprehensive treatment plans that improve their patient’s diet and exercise regime, help manage stress, and provide non-surgical interventions. Taking care of yourself now will reap the rewards in the future.
