Some people can embrace it and rock their wrinkles and grey hair, while others prefer to add a little tweakment or two into their routine. Whichever camp you fall in, we’re here to share what you can expect as you age, and what the best anti ageing treatments are.

When do you Start to Feel the Effects of Ageing?

You might be surprised to learn that signs of ageing can first appear as young as your mid-20s. At this time, you may start to notice fine lines appearing around your eyes, or a few thin forehead lines failing to smooth away at the end of the day. The part of your body most likely to age first, however, is actually your breasts. This article in Good Housekeeping explains why.

What are the Effects of Ageing on the Skin?

Ageing skin problems are many. Fortunately, they take their time to appear and don’t creep up on you overnight. Ageing of the skin includes -

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Loss of laxity
  • Thinning skin
  • Loss of volume
  • Sagginess
  • Dullness

Fortunately, all of these instances of ageing skin can be eased thanks to the beauty industry and the products and treatments they provide. From off-the-shelf serums to in-salon laser therapy, there are so many things you can try when it comes to treating aging loose skin.

At-Home Treatments for Ageing Skin

If you’re worried about premature aging skin, and you’d like to combat the signs before they set in, there are some fantastic at-home products you can try. They are:

Dermatica is a personalised prescription service for your skin. You sign up to a monthly subscription, complete a questionnaire, with photos of your skin, and let them know what your main skincare concerns are. Once your skin has been assessed by the Dermatica dermatology team, they’ll prescribe your skincare treatment and it will be delivered through the post to you. You follow the steps to use your personalised skincare product and wait to see improvements.

Absolute Collagen is a liquid collagen supplement that delivers a concentrated dose of collagen via a sachet. Just drink it up and wait for the collagen to get to work. Of those who’ve tried it, 78% saw results in 12 weeks. If you’re wondering how to hydrate aging skin, this is well worth a try.

Yoga and pilates – ok, so they’re not a product, but yoga and pilates are thought to be two of the best anti-ageing exercises you can try. They help tone, sculpt, boost strength, and help to improve your posture and flexibility too. Make some time to practice a little yoga or pilates every day and see if you notice a difference to your body.

Sunscreen – if you’re not wearing it every day, you’re doing it wrong. Sun damage is the fastest way to see wrinkles, lines, and pigmentation popping up on your face, so make sure you add a decent SPF product into your morning skincare regime. The higher the SPF, the better.

Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Max Night Cream – packed with hydrating ingredients, and a potent Retinoid that will help smooth and revive your skin, this pot of skincare goodness is a go-to for many.

In-Salon Treatments for Ageing Skin

Whether you’re worried about the effects of ageing on your face, or you’re more concerned with toning up the skin on your body, at Este, we offer multiple treatments to help address signs of ageing.

Injectables

If you want a quick fix to tackle fine lines and wrinkles, nothing gets to work faster than dermal fillers and Botox. You’ll see an instant improvement in your skin’s volume, and fine lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out. These are only temporary fixes though, so if you want to maintain the result, you’ll need to come back for further treatments.

Carboxytherapy

When you have Carboxytherapy, medical-grade CO2 is injected into certain areas of your body. This tricks your body into thinking it needs to send more oxygen to the area. This results in flushing out toxins, boosting your immune and lymphatic systems and helping to combat issues such as -

  1. Cellulite
  2. Under-eye bags
  3. Stretch marks
  4. Fine lines and wrinkles
  5. Skin laxity
  6. Alopecia

HiFU, Emsculpt, and Fat Freezing

When you come into Este for your initial consultation, we will discuss which option is right for you. But you can expect your body to be tightened and toned, and fat cells to be destroyed.

Pixel Laser Resurfacing

Boost collagen and smooth fine lines and wrinkles with a Pixel Laser Resurfacing treatment. Age spots, pigmentation and sun damage can all be addressed too.

Lightfusion TM Light Therapy

Using two light wavelengths that have been proven to be well absorbed by skin cells, this treatment helps to stimulate collagen and elastin, as well as increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the blood. It’s another option in the treatment of ageing skin problems.

HydraFacial
