Talking Skin Types – Ageing skin

Okay, so ageing skin is not a skin type it happens to us all I’m afraid. However, I do want to recommend where you should be focusing your time and money because there are so so many options out there! Characteristics of ageing skin can be fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots (dark skin patches), dullness and thinning skin. If you would like to improve the quality of your skin you absolutely can whatever your age – it’s never too late! 

Below I have listed the must have products, the nice to have and the bonus products for your skin type. Please be aware that your individual skin will probably fall into different categories at different times, so a great idea to read all of the blogs that might fit your skin needs.

I have listed the products in order of how you would apply them to your skin as this is another thing that can be quite confusing to many of my clients.

The best treatments for ageing skin:

The right treatment for you will depend entirely on how much time and money you would like to spend on treatment and products, a full consultation to discuss the right path for you is essential. 

I have listed my brief lowdown below to help you understand which treatment or treatments may be right for you. Every single treatment below stimulates collagen (your skin’s natural protein). 

If your main concern is loose or sagging skin:

Venus Freeze – radio frequency. This warm and tingly treatment is a great place to start if you are concerned with tightening the skin, it is very conformable to have and has fantastic results – especially around the eyes and jawline. 

 

Clearlift and NIR – This incredible combination treatment of laser and near infrared is an ultimate combo of skin tightening and skin regeneration. Our very best selling anti-ageing treatment at SKIN lounge!  

HIFU – Stands for High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound. This is the most advanced, deepest penetrating, non-surgical facelift technology in the world. If you are serious about ageing this should be an absolute must in your treatment calendar. 

If your main concern is skin complexion:

Dermalux light therapy – is an incredible treatment to awaken and brighten the skin, relaxing, yet gives results – amazing!

 

Alumier skin peels  a great way to get a new start with your skin, if your skin is dull or has hyper pigmentation (age spots) we need to renew it and there is no better way than with a skin peel. Not as scary as they sound, our bespoke peel is actually really relaxing – an absolute treat for you and your skin.

 

IPL skin rejuvenation – for me, this is the very best treatment for hyper pigmentation and skin plumping. This incredible treatment is an absolute game changer for anyone suffering with pigmentation. One of my clients calls it ‘a drink from the fountain of youth’ – seriously anti-aging and plumping to collagen. A full consultation and patch test is required before treatment. 

iPixel – Another advanced method of skin renewal is our incredible laser, this advanced medical treatment totally renews the skin within a week and the results are truly astounding!
