Illawarra Cosmetic Clinic Reveals Affordable Ultraformer III and Skin Needling Rejuvenation Face Treatment Benefits Near Me in Corrimal
Refreshing You Face: What You Need to Know
Once upon a time, facelifts were for the rich and famous, and they always required surgery. But times have changed. Nowadays, consumers hear a lot about facial rejuvenation, and beauty clinics that help ordinary men and women who hope to erase the insults of time with a wide range of rejuvenation treatments.
With non-surgical beauty procedures becoming increasingly affordable, consumers might be wondering what their options are and what results they can expect. Shelley Stevens, a qualified nurse with experience in both surgical and non-surgical beauty treatments, ran us through popular facial rejuvenation techniques.
Ultraformer III – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
Wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin are among the top targets for surgery. But according to Shelley, you can tighten up skin, reduce wrinkles, and reduce sagging by simply letting a therapist direct ultrasound waves into the tissues that lie beneath your skin.
“Platinum Face and Body Clinic uses the world-leading Ultraformer III when it comes to HIFU facial rejuvenation as there are many imitations that do not deliver the same results. This piece of equipment is one reason people use our clinic,” says Shelley.
“It’s scientifically tested and approved by regulatory authorities,” she says. “It won’t give consumers the dramatic results they get from surgery, but that can be an advantage too. There’s some effect immediately, but the primary advantage is that it stimulates collagen production in the skin. Of course, that means consumers only see the full result later on.”
Tracey Andreason, a 46 year old mother of two agrees, “A clinician suggested the Ultraformer III to reduce wrinkles on my face and the results were really amazing.”
Brighten up With LED Light Therapy
Can special LED lights really reduce wrinkles? Shelley points us towards a slew of scientific papers that say it certainly does. “It’s a relatively new development,” she explains, “and the results are in. Platinum Face and Body Clinic purchased a state-of-the-art LED therapy device, and it’s been a solid investment.”
Apart from reducing wrinkles, LED light therapy smooths out gaping pores, brightens the skin and helps to treat pigmentation blemishes.
“Pigmentation is a hereditary issue in my family,” explains Jennifer Rush, “LED light therapy really made a difference.”
Skin Needling – Not Nearly as Drastic as it Sounds
When it comes to rejuvenating skin, collagen is the key player. By inserting tiny needles into the skin, skin needling persuades the body that it needs to do some mending, and it goes into collagen-producing overdrive. But needles, it sounds so painful!
Shelley laughs. “It’s really not as bad as it sounds, using an advanced Dermapen. The needles are so tiny, and they move so quickly, that it just feels like I’m brushing your skin with something a little rough.”
Turning Back the Clock
Hoping to soften frown lines, marionette lines and crows’ feet… Injectables could be the answer. But there’s more. “As people age, lips tend to get thinner,” says Shelley. “A lot of people want to have softer, fuller lips. And there are areas where the skin sinks away because of collagen loss. That gives people an older, more tired appearance. Consumers can instantly relax wrinkles, plump up skin, and address asymmetry with injectables.”
Shelley says it’s all about results rather than treatment choices. “It depends on what’s bothering people about their appearance and what they want to achieve. Sometimes clinics recommend one type of treatment, at others, they’ll suggest a combination. But it comes down to what people want.”
“If the results people are looking for can only be achieved with surgery, then consumers need to know that. Platinum face and Body Clinic thrives because unrealistic promises don’t exist here – that means satisfied clients get what they’re expecting to get.”
“Non-surgical techniques are great because there’s no downtime. The results aren’t as dramatic as those offered if people go under the knife, but people will comment that they’re looking great without realising they had treatments. That’s an added advantage. People are fresher and more relaxed-looking.”
