Non-Surgical Treatments for Younger Looking Skin

Non-Surgical Treatments for Younger Looking Skin

It’s a fact of life that sooner or later, gravity will catch up with you, and your skin will inevitably begin to show those telltale signs of aging.

The good news – with the advancements in technology and so many non-surgical treatments now available, “aging gracefully” (wink wink, nudge nudge) can come to you a little easier.

With the introduction of these new minimally invasive treatments (or ‘tweakments’ if you may) the appeal of the traditional facelift has faded. Gone is the need for extensive and painful recovery time that comes with expensive and invasive surgical procedures. The aim these days is to look fresh and well-rested with minimal to no downtime. You want your friends and family to notice a difference but not be able to put a finger on it.

If you’re looking for affordable, minimally invasive treatments to help you subtly reverse those signs of ageing, we’ve rounded up our favourites right here.


Skin Needling (Dermapen, RF Skin Needling)

Skin Needling Dermapen Beautiful Skin at Medi Spa Gold Coast

What is it?

Also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, skin needling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to re-establish collagen and elastin and improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

What does it involve?

After the skin is cleansed and a topical anaesthetic has been applied, a sterile skin needling device is used to penetrate the skin at varying depths and speeds. Hyaluronic acid is infused throughout the treatment to plump and hydrate skin.

What results can I expect to see?

Although results will vary, depending on your existing skin concerns, you can expect fine lines to appear plumped up, leaving your skin looking more dewy and youthful.


Ultraformer (HIFU)

What is it?

Nicknamed the Lunchtime Facelift, Ultraformer uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. This non-surgical facelift alternative boosts collagen and elastin, with little to no downtime.

What does it involve?

A handheld device is hovered over the skin to deliver targeted ultrasound pulses deep into the lower layers of the skin. You may feel a slight tingle and tug, which can cause some minor discomfort and possibly some redness. But don’t worry, this generally subsides within an hour of treatment.

What results can I expect to see?

Many people will notice instant results, with the skin appearing tighter, firmer and more lifted. True results will be seen when the old collagen is replaced with new collagen generated by the treatment.


Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze Facial Treatment Medi Spa Gold Coast
What is it?

The Venus Freeze combines Radio Frequency (RF) and Magnetic Pulse (M2) to induce collagen production within the dermis and tighten elastin fibres. It is ideal as a non-surgical alternative to a skin tightening procedure.

What does it involve?

A handheld device is used over the face to deliver targeted radiofrequency and magnetic pulses deep into the lower layers of the skin. During the treatment, you will feel a warm sensation to the treated area, which may cause some slight redness and inflammation.

What results can I expect to see?

Ideal candidates will notice a reduction in wrinkles, skin tightening around jowls and neck and facial volume enhancement. It is also effective for poikiloderma by decreasing the redness and pigmentation associated with this condition.

At The Skin Centre Medi Spa, we offer a range of affordable, minimally invasive treatments, including the ones mentioned here and more.
Our Ultraformer machine is the most powerful available on the market, making this a real non-surgical facelift alternative. We also provide cosmetic injectables and anti-wrinkle injections in our Gold Coast skin rejuvenation clinic. Call us now to find out how we can help you to be your best self!
