Whether that be through our food and exercise, we also need to take care of our skin and face. There are many damaging obstacles that our face comes in contact with. Sunlight, pollution and our own natural aging process.

Thanks to advances in technology and medical treatments, repairing damaged skin and reversing the noticeable signs of aging has become easier, faster and less painful – and can often be done without surgery. Quite literally, it’s possible to have a treatment today and be back at work tomorrow.

Many aesthetic treatments have proven highly effective in repairing and rejuvenating the skin, including:

  • Botox injections ease wrinkles in the upper third of the face. Effects typically last for 3 to 6 months.
  • Chemical peel removes fine lines and smoothes the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth.
  • New filler injections are used for lip augmentation and to treat wrinkles and skin folds. Effects typically last up to a year.
  • Laser resurfacing treats sun-damaged skin, scarring, and other facial skin problems. It also works well on stretch marks, especially when treated early.
  • Microdermabrasion erases ultra-fine lines, rejuvenates the complexion, and helps restore healthy skin tone and color.

It is also very important to be on some kind of skin care regimen, including sunscreen of 30SPF. Making a few changes to your daily routine can pay off in healthier, more youthful looking skin. Daily doses of vitamin E (200-400 IU) and vitamin C (500-1000 mg) as both have been shown to stimulate collagen production. Adults aged 40 and above should add a daily calcium supplement of 600-1000 mg. Multi-vitamins containing Evening Primrose oil and green tea extract can also benefit the skin.

Many skin care products now contain vitamins and antioxidants. Products with vitamin C can help against fine lines and wrinkles, stabilize collagen and help sunburned skin. Vitamin C also works to lighten darker skin pigment by decreasing melanin. Vitamin A can also help fight wrinkles and brown spots, a common problem after pregnancy for Asian women.

Before choosing your skin care products, it’s important to know your skin type. Those with dry skin should add moisturizer every day, while oily skin needs regular cleansing, with moisturizer applied only sparingly. Those with sensitive skin should avoid perfumed products and herbal extracts, as these can irritate the skin. If you’re unsure about your skintype, feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with our Aesthetician Tanya.
