Summer Skin Starts In Winter
Like the catch phrase ‘Summer bodies start in Winter’, the same goes for your skin. It's the perfect time to invest in getting it right because with less risk of sun exposure, it can effectively heal, recover and rejuvenate.
A common request at The Clinic is for glowing, youthful skin – and while we can’t stop the ageing process, we can help to make you feel like the best version of yourself. At The Clinic, we offer a range of medical-grade treatments to do exactly that. We asked Co-Director Kaye Scott for her recommendations for getting back that glow.
"Great skin doesn’t stop at the neck. It extends right down to the chest, décolletage and even the tummy. Our aim is to help our clients feel better than ever, so our comprehensive offering includes tightening, brightening and rejuvenating to ensure they feel exactly that", explains Scott.
If you’re looking for effective and powerful anti-ageing Kaye recommends combining modalities for optimum results: "For firming, either Thermage or Ultraformer – or even both. And for rejuvenation, Fraxel provides incredible results".
Thermage is a clinically proven and non invasive way to tighten and contour the skin, combating the loss of elasticity caused by age, weight loss, children and other determining factors. Thermage treatments are all about energy – focusing radiofrequency energy into specific areas to kick start the body’s own collagen renewal process. By heating the deep layers of the skin, Thermage causes collagen fibres to contract, instantly improving the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, firmer and younger look. Thermage works in a single treatment with no down time and delivers a natural result.
Ultraformer in comparison is a targeted facial firming, lifting and rejuvenating treatment. It is a revolutionary face-lifting technology, also with no patient downtime, and uses the power of gentle yet powerful micro-focused ultrasound to lift not just the skin but also the deep muscle layer underneath.
The Ultraformer uses deep dermal micro-heating and contraction for a multi-layered lifting, tightening and rejuvenation effect. It promotes maximum collagen rejuvenation meaning plumper, smoother more youthful skin.
"Ultraformer is able to be targeted to smaller, more specific areas, so depending on the client’s needs, we can perform this around the eye area in addition to all over Thermage", says Scott.
Fraxel is a non-invasive laser therapy that penetrates the epidermis, targeting the deep layers of the skin for collagen remodeling, with 25% less downtime. Fraxel is our most effective treatment for pigmentation, discolouration, freckles, sun spots, age spots, acne scarring and overall rejuvenation.
And the treatment doesn’t stop there. We offer a considered and curated selection of lifting and tightening products for continued at home care. Following anti-ageing treatments, Cosmedix Bio-Shape Firming Face Mask and Cosmedix Illuminate & Lift Neck Treatment are two of our favourite recommendations.
