ASK THE EXPERT
“I go for regular monthly facials and stick to an anti-ageing skincare regimen, but is this enough to prevent skin ageing?”
As skin ages, the natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid slows down, causing skin to appear less supple and firm. Most facials do a good job of cleansing and moisturising the skin’s surface, but often have little effect on cell regeneration at the deeper levels of the skin. In order to improve the appearance of wrinkles, folds and fine lines, it is paramount to stimulate collagen and elastin regeneration so that skin can maintain its youthful suppleness.
With technological advancements, anti-ageing treatments are able to target the deeper parts of the skin to stimulate cell regeneration.
- High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, commonly known as HIFU, reaches up a depth of 4.5 mm to improve collagen synthesis over two to three months, so skin appears firmer, with less wrinkles.
- Nano DNA Infusion infuses skin with DNA (also known as deoxyribonucleic acid), to induce skin cell renewal of up to 1 mm. When combined with HIFU, targets wrinkles at different depths for the best anti-ageing results.
- Unlike minimally invasive procedures like botulinum toxin and filler injections, the results of the above two treatments are natural, as they enhance the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, keeping skin firm and supple.
