Non-surgical Options to Improve Your Skin Health

Sep 1, 2022

The effects of ageing can be irritating. Dealing with skin concerns such as scarring, wrinkles, and discolouration is challenging⁠—but not impossible.

Nowadays, a range of non-surgical options are available to help you turn back the clock without breaking the bank. Whatever your concern or condition, many options are out there for you to consider to help achieve more healthy and youthful looking skin.
Read more below about treatments available for common skin concerns.

Ageing

Although ageing is a natural and biological process, it can take a toll on our skin in various ways. Fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation—just to name a few. Despite the belief that no perfect treatment to solve all these skin concerns exists, you may be surprised to know that you can get your hands on one close contender: a laser treatment known as Fraxel.
Fraxel is a non-invasive laser treatment that targets a fraction of your skin at a time by dividing it into microscopic treatment zones. In doing so, energy from laser beams is delivered beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate the growth of new skin cells. This also accelerates the skin’s natural healing process and triggers collagen and elastin production, giving you that youthful glow.
Depending on the skin concern and individual needs, the number of treatments and results from Fraxel can vary. If you feel that you may benefit from Fraxel treatment, make sure to get in touch with the experienced team at SkinCentre for a no-cost consultation.

Scarring

If scars and ‘dull’ skin are getting you down, then dermal rolling treatments may be for you. Also known as micro-needling, dermal rolling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures on your skin. This helps skin regeneration by stimulating natural skin repair processes, which produce new collagen. Over time, this results in firmer and smoother skin, enhanced blood supply, and reduced scar appearance. This can also be combined with radiofrequency (heat-based energy) to enhance the treatment effect.

The Dermastamp is one such example of dermal rolling treatment and involves fine needles that penetrate the skin at high speeds for skin rejuvenation. Dermastamp can penetrate varying depths of the skin and can be infused with serums and other skincare products to relieve different skin complaints. The results are gradual but long lasting. You’ll also experience few side effects other than minor skin irritation and redness.

Sun damage

Sun damage is a major cause of many skin concerns and this is usually due to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) light. This can lead to effects we think are caused by ageing, such as hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, and loss of skin elasticity. Fortunately, treatments are available to help you improve sun-damaged skin health.

If you’re after an effective treatment that you can apply from the comfort of your own home, Complex K may be a good option for you. Complex K is a prescription treatment cream that contains clinically effective ingredients scientifically proven to reverse the effects of sun damage. The formulation includes:

  • Retinoids – a class of vitamin A derivatives that reduces wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and stimulates collagen production.
  • Hydroquinone – a skin-lightening agent used to treat hyperpigmentation.
  • Hydrocortisone (very mild) – used to treat itching, redness, and any skin irritation caused by the ingredients above.

Complex K can be used with your skincare products; however, it’s advised not to use it if you’re pregnant, using other retinoid treatments, or undergoing cosmetic treatments.

Skincare

Putting in the work and implementing a skincare routine is one of the best ways to maintain your skin health. The basic steps of a skincare routine typically include a cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen (daytime). However, additional steps may be necessary depending on your skin concerns.

The GlyMed Plus skincare range is an excellent choice to consider incorporating into your skincare routine. Recommended by dermatologists and created using science-backed natural ingredients, the products can be selected to create a personalised routine to repair and nourish skin, helping your skin achieve that healthy, youthful glow it once had.
Give your skin the love it deserves. For more information, contact SkinCentre for a confidential consultation.
