When we were kids, all we could think of was to grow up. But once we are grown ups, we want to be kids again. Growing old is inevitable and it comes with so many complications that cannot be avoided. Once we cross our 40’s, our body starts showing signs of slowing down and that will go on until the day we are no longer here. But with age comes wisdom and wrinkles! We take the wisdom and try our best to say goodbye to the wrinkles. Thankfully, we live in an era where there are so many ways to help with our skin issues. And, the best part is, there are treatment choices that would not require you to go under the knife! So, if you are looking for ways to tighten your skin or just improve overall facial texture, you have landed at the right article! In this blog post, we will be sharing about ageing skin issues and methods to help with it. Do not miss out on our frequently asked question section at the bottom of this article! Let’s begin!


Skin Issues That Come With Ageing!

Depending on your genetics, ageing can look different for everyone. People with darker skin tones generally do not age faster because of the melanin content in their skin. However, all of us at some point will have saggy and wrinkly skin.

Here are some of the common issues we see:

1. Wrinkles and fine lines

Many factors can cause wrinkles and fine lines. The harsh UV rays will result in skin laxity, especially around areas that are more prone to sunlight exposure. This can also worsen if you are a chain smoker because nicotine has been shown to damage collagen in our body.

2. Age spots

The reason why this happens is because there is an excess production of melanin. These spots usually appear in a cluster and are not dangerous. These spots can appear throughout the body.

3. Skin laxity

The biggest nightmare for us all, is skin laxity! There are a myriad of factors that can cause this. Diet and lifestyle choices play a huge role in how fast your skin starts to sag. Hence why, we always encourage our clients to take collagen supplements as they start seeing signs of sagging skin. Collagen and elastin play a huge role in skin texture.

4. Skin dryness

The older we get, the more prone we are to itchiness and dry skin. Of course, sometimes we forget to drink enough water or spend too much time under the sun. But often not, as we age, despite the efforts taken to hydrate, you will notice your skin drying out more easily. For this, you can remedy it by using a powerful face moisturiser that is formulated for ageing dry skin.



Why is Collagen and Elastin so Important?

To have firmer skin, you will need these two very important protein molecules in your body, which are collagen and elastin. When we are younger, it is easier for our body to produce them, however, as we age, our systems slow down and the levels of collagen and elastin dramatically reduces. While you can source collagen and elastin from supplements and food, it cannot solve the sagging skin issue entirely. Hence why most clients prefer combining focused ultrasound energy therapy and supplements for quicker results. However, there are many alternatives to skin tightening!


5 Things You Can Do To Slow Down Ageing?

The body’s natural ageing process is one that we cannot control, but there are many things we can do to help slow it down. Here are some of the best things you can do:

1. Eat a low inflammatory diet

When you consume too much sugar, it can show up on your skin. Sugar has high inflammatory properties. A healthy balanced diet with a heavier focus on leafy greens and healthy fats will have a huge impact on ageing.

2. Consistent body movements

Working out is not only for weight loss! Moving your body has so many benefits that cannot be found in other activities. Regularly pumping blood to your brain can slow down ageing. You can start with small steps. If you are always sitting down, take a 10 minute walk every hour. Do this everyday and you will notice the difference!

3. Reduce the consumption of alcohol

While it is fun to consume alcohol, overconsumption of it can make you age faster. Studies also show that long term alcohol overuse could result in dementia. The suggested daily consumption is less than 2 glasses of win, on average.

4. Quit smoking

While smoking can be very pleasurable, it slows you down in so many other ways! Nicotine does not only affect the collagen in your body but it can also cause other severe health conditions like lung cancer and heart diseases. Your body will thank you if you quit it!

5. Getting enough rest

This is a no brainer and yet we all complain about our sleep! If you are not getting at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep a day, then you are most definitely increasing the risk of other health conditions. When you don’t get enough sleep, your skin can easily age faster!



At Home Facial Tightening Treatments

There are many ways to tighten your skin laxity at home. Do note that these methods may or may not work for everyone and will have differing results.

1. Firming skincare products

This is usually the first step we all take, which is to buy anti ageing skincare products that have skin tightening benefits. However, this option may not treat the issue entirely as it is more helpful when paired with an in office treatment. Skin lifting creams are also expensive.

2. Facial rejuvenation tools

There are many facial skin tightening tools that you can use to help with facial and neck skin laxity. While of course, this method does not give you the same results as a cosmetic surgery would, you can definitely see some results if you are consistent.

Noninvasive Skin Tightening Methods

Most people think that a surgical facelift procedure is the most efficient way to tighten their skin. But thanks to technological advancements, we can now opt for nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that have promising results.

Here are two popular noninvasive ways to help with skin laxity:

1. Laser skin resurfacing

Laser technology has improved so much over the past decade. It has helped so many people achieve their skin goals and can also be used to help with hair removal. Laser skin resurfacing helps with wrinkles and fine lines reduction.

2. Ultrasound skin tightening

When you hear the term ultrasound, people automatically think of the ultrasound scans they do in the hospitals! HIFU treatment does use the same ultrasound energy but the device and wavelengths are different.

Perfect Laser Clinics has a high performance skin tightening HIFU treatment, Ultherapy. This high intensity focused ultrasound treatment has helped so many clients achieve a youthful appearance! Continue reading to find out how!



How Does Our Ultherapy Work?

HIFU treatments in general have a standard process. However, there will be certain variations that depend on the clinic you visit.

Firstly, our therapist will conduct an in-depth skin analysis for our clients. This skin analysis is done to better understand our clients skin's hydration level, pore size, degree of sagging and a couple of other factors. During this analysis, our therapist can help to identify which areas that need to be treated.

Once the client is clear about how HIFU treatment works and has clarified their doubts, our therapist will do a facial cleanse to perform a patch test. The patch test is very important because if the patient has an adverse reaction, the treatment can be stopped. The patch test is also done to help the therapist to analyse how much effort is needed for that treatment session.

Lastly, through the ultrasound imaging, our therapist can adjust the wavelengths of ultrasound during the treatment. This is important because everyone’s body is different. Once the client feels comfortable, then the rest of the treatment will begin.

Most of our clients do not come back to us until they notice a moderate skin laxity in the treatment area. Our Ultherapy promises results that can last up to 12 months.


The Risk of HIFU Treatments

Like every treatment, HIFU procedure does pose its own risk. However, this treatment is still a crowd favourite because it is non-invasive and it’s pain free. The common side effects of this treatment are:

· Redness in treatment area · Mild swelling · Temporary scars

That being said, always disclose your medical conditions and if you are on any prescribed medications to your therapist during your consultation. You can only proceed with the treatment if our therapist deems you fit for it.



Why Pick Perfect Laser Clinic’s Ultherapy?

There are so many benefits to this treatment! First off, this is noninvasive unlike a surgical face lift. Next, you get to achieve a more natural looking facelift that has long lasting results, which is very suitable for people who do not like to visit clinics. A two hour session will give you results that can last up to 12 months. The last and the most important thing is that our HIFU procedure will help to kickstart collagen production in your system, which is one of the most important factors to skin tightening!

Another huge reason why you should choose Perfect Laser Clinics is because we have been around for 18 years and have done over 13 million treatments.

Who is suitable for HIFU treatment?

Anyone who starts seeing signs of ageing can come in for a free consultation. There is no age criteria because some people notice fine lines and wrinkles in their 20’s. We do not perform HIFU treatment on pregnant mothers.

Why is HIFU treatment popular?

The most common reason why people opt for HIFU treatment is because of the powerful technology and it is non invasive. Results can match up to a surgical facelift!

I lost a lot of weight. Can HIFU treatment help with my loose skin?

Unfortunately, for this you will need surgery. HIFU treatment works if you do have hanging saggy skin. But if you lose less than 15 kgs, you can give it a shot. Anything more than that, would require a tummy tuck.

What if I visit a clinic that does not use FDA cleared devices?

You are subjecting yourself to a higher risk. FDA certification is very important because they conduct numerous clinical trials and will only approve devices that do not impose a huge risk. If the device is not FDA cleared, there is a high chance it could cause more trouble to your health. Pick wisely!
