My Skin Philosophy - Karen
"If you have noticed small changes in your skin over time, welcome to a very big club. Most of us in our prime have seen too much sun under the age of 20 and are now seeing the damage from our free and outdoor behaviour. Some of us sun baked unprotected by any sort of sunscreen, and loved drowning ourselves in baby oil, but never seeing a tan in most cases, just sun burn and blisters. Some of us smoked and loved it, and some of us never exercised and ate too much. I did it all, and am now addressing these reminders one at a time with anti ageing treatments, diet and exercise".
From my sun baking and smoking days on the surf coast and from ageing I now have redness, pigmentation broken capillaries, skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles. In conjunction with Dr Natasha Cook and Lumi Skin Care I can now address the surface of my skin. I treat the pigmentation with Fractional Laser treatment, prescription skin lightening lotion, peels and zinc sunscreen. General redness and broken capillaries are treated with Fotona Nd Yag laser treatments as is the skin laxity.
Remember clinical skin care, peels and microdermabrasion treat mainly the surface of the skin ... laser treatments are for the colours in our skin that shouldn't be there - redness, rosacea, broken capillaries, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Treatment for general resurfacing, collagen stimulation and rejuvenation can be treated with Dermapen.
Fine lines and wrinkles have appeared over time as well due to sun damage and activation of muscles in the face. When a muscle activates 100,000 times it forms a wrinkle.. the more movement (eg in the frown area) the deeper the line... so anti wrinkle injections relax the muscles that pull the skin, therefore giving a more relaxed, rejuvenated look to the area treated. Facial lines that are present at rest... (around the mouth and lower face) respond very well to dermal fillers. These injections are non permanent and are a great treatment to lift and smooth lines, hydrate and enhance facial features. Dermal fillers can also help reduce scars and small defects in the skin. Small amounts of these products over a period time work the best. I have just treated small areas with small amounts of product over a long time to maintain a natural look... this is the only way to go - slow and steady.
Anti ageing medicine has come a long way in short time.. and our treatments are all tried and true.. all of these treatments are safe and effective.. just ask me.
