Here’s How You Can Look Younger without Going under the Knife

It used to be that eliminating wrinkles, sagging skin and other ill effects of ageing and even ordinary living meant going under the knife. But today, patients who don’t have the time or are scared to go through surgery now have various options at their disposal. A slew of non-surgical cosmetic procedures that are less invasive but equally effective are changing the game for those in pursuit of a fresher, more youthful glow.

At The Cosmetic and Restorative Surgery Clinic, we have the experience and the solutions to turn back the clock and erase the signs of ageing fast. If you want to enjoy the convenience and exceptional and instant results that non-surgical procedures offer, we can help.

Let us help you take years off your face without going under the knife today. Here are 4 excellent non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help revitalise your appearance and keep you looking and feeling great.

1.     Anti-wrinkle injections – Decades ago, if people were told that it’s possible to smooth out creases and frown lines with an anti-wrinkle injection, many would not have believed. But as we all know today, it is and it has become possible. Dr Hodgkinson’s anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments performed today. It is a non-permanent injectable used for softening fine lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing small facial muscles to reduce the intensity or contraction of the muscles; thereby, minimising the appearance of wrinkles. Typically, the product is injected to the crow’s feet, heavy lines around the brows and forehead, and the neck.

2.     Thermage – As the first people to bring Thermage from the United States 10 years ago we are proud to say that we have Introduced the next generation in Skin tightening and scar reduction with Infini. Still using Radio Frequency technology delivering it to the deeper levels of the skin and therefore delivering a better result.

3.     Infini – Another non-surgical treatment offered exclusively at our clinic, Infini promises to give you the inspiring and infinite beauty you deserve by reducing wrinkles and scars, and tightening the skin. It’s a new technology that offers two different approaches: the Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency and Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency. The former delivers minimally invasive radiofrequency to the dermis and epidermis, enhancing the skin’s tone and elasticity via skin resurfacing and improved collagen production. While the latter targets the tissues’ deeper levels to reduce scars and wrinkles, as well as to tighten skin. We are also the first clinic in Sydney to offer Infini.

4.     Lip enhancement – Full, plump lips exude youth, beauty and sensuality. But as we age, our lips tend to become thinner and begin developing wrinkles. Fortunately, there’s a way to restore the fullness of our lips—through non-surgical lip enhancement. In this procedure, the lips are injected with hypoallergenic, non-permanent fillers, with results lasting up to 6-12 months. We use all naturally absorbable injectable fillers for this treatment due to their proven success rate. Lip enhancement takes about 30 minutes and is performed by our fully-trained nursing staff.

KTP Laser – The laser treatment targets the fine red veins or capillaries of the face that most commonly appear around the nose and on the cheeks.

The treatment is performed in the clinic and the patient is capable of returning to their normal activities immediately following the treatment. The skin will be a little red but can be covered by mineral make up, the treatment feels like a pin prick and is quite tolerable?

How does it work? What the laser does is send a pulse of energy into the capillary that literally vaporizes it. The result is that the capillary disappears and closes.  This treatment last for approximately 12-18 months, as new capillaries will eventually work their way to the surface as the skin thins as a natural ageing process.

While there is no down time, it is important after treatment to avoid alcohol, sun, strenuous exercise, hot showers or hot foods such as curries for the first 24-48 hours.  The heat can revascularize the veins and open them up and allow the blood to return and hence the reddened appearance.

These procedures are designed to help you regain your flawless, youthful glow quickly and painlessly. Talk to us today and let our team provide you with the best solutions for your goals. At The Cosmetic and Restorative Clinic, we can help you kiss the signs of ageing goodbye!
