Ageing is inevitable, but looking your age is optional. Over the years, time and gravity can take their toll making skin look rough, dull and sallow, adding laxity and hollows to the face where you don’t want them. However, it’s possible to combat these signs of ageing with a good skincare routine and regular antiageing facial treatments that help maintain a youthful visage. But with so many options out there, how do you know which ones are worth it?
It’s best to get your anti-ageing facial treatments at a medispa like illumia Therapeutics that uses professional medical grade equipment. These devices are all handled by professional and experienced therapists. All the treatments at illumia therapeutics are FDA-approved which is sign of how safe the treatments are. The treatments might come at a cost, but think of it as an investment in your skin. Each client goes through an in-depth consultation after which a customised treatment protocol is mapped out so that they can achieve their beauty goals, according to their needs and timeline. And if you want quick results, here are some of the must-try anti-ageing facial treatments at illumia therapeutics.
Cryo Fat Freeze Facial
Sculpt facial contours, slow the signs of ageing and tackle that stubborn double chin with this treatment. It works on the premise that fat cells are exceptionally sensitive to extreme heat and cold and so the targeted area is alternately heated and then cooled and then heated again to destroy stubborn fat, which is then naturally eliminated from the body. The entire process is completely safe and can be customised thanks to a screen that allows you to see the exact temperature being applied in real time.
During the cooling phase, when the treatment temperature goes down to -8 degrees Celsius, a protein called the cold shock protein—RMB3— is triggered and this puts in motion a chain of chemical reactions at the cellular level that ultimately has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. Inflammation is one of the main causes of ageing and controlling inflammation has an antiageing effect on the skin. The difference in temperatures during the heating and cooling of skin also boosts collagen synthesis and promotes production of hyaluronic acid to help firm the skin, improve the look of lines and wrinkles, increase elasticity and boost moisture retention. As a result of the fat loss, the double chin and contours of the face are slimmer and more defined as well.
Thanks to a combination of three different ultrasound frequencies that result in a powerful ultrasonic wave, this facial treatment delivers powerful massages to the upper and deeper layers of the skin to tackle a wide range of skin concerns. This could be anything ranging from redness and sensitised skin to wrinkles, fine lines and even conditions like eczema, acne and psoriasis.
The micro massages generated during the treatment work to inhibit an enzyme that is found in the human body and can trigger acne, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. It is also known to break down collagen and elastin leading to skin ageing. Inhibiting this enzyme thus helps to rejuvenate skin, delay appearance of lines, wrinkles and laxity to keep skin firm and youthful. The micro-massages also encourage production of a protein in the skin that helps strengthen and maintain the skin barrier. This in turn reduces damage from external environmental factors to minimise redness and inflammation. A stronger skin barrier is also able to retain moisture better keeping skin hydrated, plump and bouncy. The micro massages also work to increase another protein that plays an important role in cell signalling process which in turn speeds up cellular metabolism to support wound healing as well as improve moisture content in the skin. After each session skin is hydrated, glowing, healthier and stronger.
Get all the benefits of the wildly popular Baby Skin Booster micro-injectable treatment without the pain and discomfort of needles. Thanks to Skin Electroporation or S.E.P technology, this treatment is able to deliver active ingredients like PDRN (Polydeoxyribonucleotide), a substance derived from Salmon DNA to the deeper layers of the skin. PDRN is packed with skin nourishing nutrients like polypeptides, amino acids and vitamins which gives it the ability to encourage cell growth and tissue repair. When it reaches the dermis layer of the skin, it works at the DNA level to promote collagen synthesis and rebuild the moisture barrier. This helps improve texture, increase firmness and elasticity as well as smooth the look of lines and wrinkles. PDRN is also biocompatible with the human body, which makes it safer in the long run. It is clinically proven that using S.E.P technology to deliver PDRN to the skin improves its absorption by up to 17 times. This is possible because this technology temporarily disrupts the aqua channels in the skin with the help of gentle electrical pulses. These electrical pulses also help achieve a lifted effect for the face by stimulating the facial muscles—almost like a workout. This technology can be safely used to treat the neck and face as well as the delicate eye area where it really helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
