Treatments for you in your 20’s

You are unique. These treatments and products are a selection of what we have available to you. All of our patients have a full consultation and together we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

In your 20’s your skin should be at its absolute best. Cell turnover is optimal, giving the skin that beautiful natural glow. You have an abundance of collagen and elastin making your skin firm and taut with an enviable silky smooth texture.

It is the optimum time to start thinking about anti-ageing. Remember, the sooner you start, the better off you will be as you progress through the decades. This only needs to be a little tweaking and enhancing to help retain your optimum skin.

Acne

Acne can be a problem for many during their 20’s. Products such as Clenziderm or Biretix used under the guidance of a qualified practitioner can help get acne or break outs back under control.

These products will work nicely alongside the in-clinic light therapy treatment Dermalux or Intense Pulse Light (IPL).

Acne scarring can be addressed with micro-needling treatments such as eDermastamp and Genuine Dermaroller.

Skincare

The main focus of skincare in your 20’s should be preventative. If we were to recommend only one product for you to invest in, it would be a good Sun Protection Factor (SPF). Absolute Aesthetics recommend Heliocare which is suitable for all skin tones and blocks both UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The ageing rays of the sun are present all year round so your SPF should be worn every day and not just in the sunny summer months.

A good Vitamin A product such as Retriderm will protect the skin from free-radicals and help to repair any early damage to your skin cells.

For a special occasion where your skin really needs to shine, an Obagi Radiance Blue Peel or Dermaceutic Milk Peel will definitely enhance your skin’s natural glow.

Body

Starting a course of Laser Hair Removal will mean that you can enjoy permanent hair reduction without having to worry about waxing, shaving, plucking or tweezing.

Keep fluid retention under control and delay the signs of cellulite with regular maintenance sessions of Endermologie.

Treatments for you in your 30’s

You are unique. These treatments and products are a selection of what we have available to you. All of our patients have a full consultation and together we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

It is in your 30’s that you will visibly start to notice the subtle signs of ageing. Constant exposure to pollution and the sun will have taken its toll on the health of your skin and everyday pressures such as children and work start to make the skin look tired and stressed.

Collagen production starts to decrease and less sebum makes it harder for your skin to retain water and moisture resulting in less resilient skin and fine lines and wrinkles.

Early signs of skin damage also start to appear with freckles and pigmentation making the skin flawed and uneven.

Acne

If you are suffering with adult acne, then consider using Clenziderm or Biretix to help treat the acne and get it under control. A course of the in-clinic treatment Dermalux works very well alongside both of these home use products.

The appearance of acne scarring can be greatly improved with micro-needling techniques eDermastamp and Genuine Dermaroller or products such as Obagi NuDerm.

Skincare

The main aim of skincare in your 30’s is to repair any damage and maintain the results. A good Sun Protection Factor such as Heliocare is a must as is a Vitamin C serum such as Obagi. To initiate rapid cellular turnover to repair the effects of ageing, consider adding a Vitamin A product such as Retriderm to your daily skincare routine.

To counteract the appearance of uneven skin, a good exfoliating skin peel such as an Aestheticare Skin Peel or Obagi Radiance Blue Peel will give the skin a nice, even and natural glow.

Face

You may be noticing the first signs of wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead so a small amount of Botox (Botulinum Toxin) will weaken the muscles and prevent wrinkles from progressing further.

If you have not religiously applied your Sun Protection Factor, you may benefit from a session of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to zap any early signs of sun damage on the cheeks, nose or forehead.

Random hairs may start appearing on the face, neck and breasts and these are best removed by Electrolysis for a permanent result.

Body

Starting a course of Laser Hair Removal will mean that you can enjoy permanent hair reduction without having to worry about waxing, shaving, plucking or tweezing.

You can help keep fluid retention under control and start to counteract the signs of cellulite with regular maintenance sessions of Endermologie.

Treatments for you in your 40’s

You are unique. These treatments and products are a selection of what we have available to you. All of our patients have a full consultation and together we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

A much slower turnover of skin cells in the 40’s means that skin loses its lustre and radiance. The natural production of collagen and elastin decreases resulting in a loss of volume, structure and shape to the face. Eyelids can start to feel and appear heavier and the jawline starts to lose definition.

Many women will be approaching the menopause and associated hormone changes can have some unwelcome changes to skin texture and tone.

Underlying skin damage caused by the sun will increase in appearance making the tone of the skin look patchy and irregular.

Acne

It is not uncommon for women in their 40’s to suffer with menopausal acne. This is a relatively temporary condition that tends to go away once hormone levels have settled. Home use products such as Biretix and Clenzierm can be considered to help alleviate symptoms during this time.

If you have suffered with acne during your past, then the micro-needling procedures eDermastamp and Genuine Dermaroller will help to improve the appearance of any acne scarring.

Skincare

Now is the time to really focus on clinical skin products that have the ability to change and improve the condition of your skin. The Endocare range of products uses naturally derived ingredients which have been proved to significantly rejuvenate aged skin.

As with every other decade, protection from the sun continues to be paramount and a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 50 such as Heliocare must be applied every day.

If you have melasma or an uneven tone caused by sun damage, then the Dermamelan skin peel will target and improve the appearance of pigmentation in the skin.

Including a regular skin peel into your skincare routine will encourage the exfoliation of skin cells, leaving your skin looking even and bright.

Face

Facial injections such as Botox (Botulinum Toxin) and Dermal Fillers can be used to soften deep lines and increase volume to the face.

You might consider having a course of eDermastamp procedures which will stimulate the production of new collagen and give the skin a more plumped up look and reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores.
For those who are nervous or unsure about procedures with needles, then the radiofrequency procedures Thermage and Pellevé will stimulate and encourage the growth of new collagen and help to tighten and lift the skin.

Body

It is very common in your 40’s for skin lesions such as Seborrhoeic Keratosis (senile warts) and cherry spots to appear on the face and body. These are harmless but will continue to grow in size if left alone. These and other skin lesions can be easily removed with Electro Surgery.

It is never too late to start with a course of Laser Hair Removal allowing you to enjoy the benefits of permanent hair reduction without having to worry about waxing, tweezing and shaving.

Dreaded cellulite can be dramatically improved and lymph drainage accelerated by a course of Endermologie.

Treatments for you in your 50’s

You are unique. These treatments and products are a selection of what we have available to you. All of our patients have a full consultation and together we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

During your 50’s skin will experience a further decrease in the production of collagen. Lines become deeper and there is less elasticity to the skin making it softer and more lax. This laxity, coupled with a loss of volume will cause jowls to form and an overall appearance of downwards heaviness to the face.

Females who are post-menopausal may start to find that their skin lacks moisture and has become very dry.

Skincare

Over the counter skincare cleansers and moisturisers are generally for the mass market. If you aren’t already, you should be using clinical home treatment products that can improve the appearance and condition of your skin, alongside a good sun protection factor such as Heliocare.

Ageing skin is continually being challenged by factors such as sun, the seasons and hormones and these products can be reviewed and adjusted to work alongside these changes.

In your 50’s, a regular skin peel and Dermalux treatment will keep cells turning over at an even rate and give the skin a bright, natural glow.

For those of you with sun damage, this can be addressed by a Dermamelan skin peel or course of Intense Pulse Light.

Face

Dermal Fillers and skin boosters are an excellent treatment to increase moisture and lost volume to the face and lips. When used alongside other treatments such as Thermage and Botox (Botulinum Toxin), a natural looking improvement can be achieved to the shape and volume of the face and quality of the skin.

For those of you who are unhappy with the appearance of heavy jowls or have advanced volume loss to the mid-face, then the Silhouette Soft treatment provides a less invasive treatment to those who do not wish to consider having a neck or face lift.

Body

Circulation can be sluggish so Endermologie can be used to assist with lymphatic drainage and also help to shift stubborn areas of fat. Unfortunately, as the skin becomes thinner and less flexible it starts to take on a crepe like appearance but this can be improved with Thermage.

Harmless growths such as senile warts and skin tags that start to appear can easily be removed with a session of Electro Surgery.

Both men and women can experience or continue to experience hair loss during their 50’s. Hair loss caused by a genetic predisposition or hormonal imbalance can be improved with 1 – 2 treatments of Platelet Rich Plasma which stimulates dormant hair follicles to start growing again. This can be used in conjunction with recommended supplements such as Viviscall.

Treatments for you in your 60’s and beyond

You are unique. These treatments and products are a selection of what we have available to you. All of our patients have a full consultation and together we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

During your 60’s and beyond, collagen levels in the skin will deplete rapidly and the body will eventually stop producing it. This means your skin will become more lax, thinner and much drier than it has previously been.

On a positive note for women, symptoms of the menopause are left behind meaning hormones are less likely to influence the quality of the skin.

Skincare

Skin will become much thinner during your 60’s and beyond so using a Retionol A product each evening will help to boost collagen production and thicken the skin. Use this alongside Vitamin C for radiance and a creamy thick moisturiser such as Endocare to keep your skin smooth and moisturised.

A gentle exfoliator such as the Agera RX Microderma System will keep cell turnover at an even level meaning the skin looks less dull and more radiant.

Face

As we age, volume is lost in the face and can make it look heavy and downward drooping. When expertly injected, dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to replace some of that lost volume and reshape areas of the face giving a very natural and pleasing result.

For those wanting a more dramatic result, a face lift or upper blepharoplasty for hooded eyes can be performed under local anaesthetic and will avoid longer recovery times associated with general anaesthetic.

The 60’s and beyond is all about great looking skin. Regular Skin peels using gentle acids such as salicylic and glycolic will make sure the skin has a wonderful, natural glow to it. If you suffer with hyperpigmentation or have a lot of sun damage, then the Dermamelan peel and Obagi Blue Peel will help to address this.

Body

Hands can be a very ageing feature as age spots increase and the loss of volume makes tendons and veins more prominent. IPL is an excellent treatment for the safe removal of age spots and hyaluronic acid skin boosters will plump and hydrate the hands making them look less bony.

Everybody in their 60’s onwards will have grown an unwanted lesion or two. Skin lumps such as a seborrohoeic keratosis (senile warts), skin tags or cysts can very easily be removed using Electro Surgery which is a relatively inexpensive procedure and leaves minimal scarring.
