Home' Spa and Clinic : SPA Vol-73 Autumn 2018 Contents 40'
EM: Lip f iller s are becoming more
popular at a young age and many
are s tar ting anti-wrinkle injections
early for wrinkle prevention. We
also f ind we are doing mild skin
peels , anti-acne treatments and
LED ther apy. For men in their 20s , the
main issue is acne, and skin peels are the
mainstay of treatments.
MZ: From the age of 20 our collagen production
star ts to slow down and by the time we are 40 years old our collagen production is
at half its speed. Therefore in our 20s, we tend to do maintenance and prevention
skincare treatments, e .g using a good SPF and vitamin C serum with an exfoliating
cleanser is often a good star ting regime. Young patients that are on cer tain
medications like Accutane need to make sure they don’t do treatments like laser
and other light based or peeling treatments.
SM: For younger women it’s how to stay on top of ageing before they get old, so
it’s usually going to be preventative treatments . Sun block, sun screens , baby Botox
to get the lines and wr inkles never showing up that their mother’s had to treat
ac tively and aggressively, soft tissue filler s to create contours and shapes of lips and
cheeks they never had, and then ongoing rejuvenation technology such as Picosure
that can keep age at bay.
EM: In this age group we per for m anti-wrinkle
injections and fillers and may introduce skin needling
for collagen induction. The hormonal changes
associated with pregnancy see an increase again in
acne and also pigmentation changes so in this age
group light-based devices in the for m of IPL and laser
s tar t becoming ver y useful. In men, post-acne scar ring
(PAS) is one of the main issues and we would use a
combination of skin needling and fr ac tional laser once
their active acne has settled.
MZ: Our patients in their 30s are often getting
married, going through adult acne or s tar ting to wor r y
about lines and wrinkles star ting to appear. This is
when you introduce a Vitamin A and B ser um into
your skincare regime. Star t doing Icon Max G sessions
for little bits of pigmentation that might be making the
skin look uneven. For the
body, a Sculpsure
fat destruc tion
ageing gracefully is
to embrace non-invasive
technologies that include sun protection.
At home, I recommend including anti-oxidants and pro
collagen s timulants through skincare. Moreover, you
can't go wrong embracing energy based treatments in a
doctor ’s of f ice or medical spa that deploy IPL fr actional
lasers, tighteners, radiofrequency energ y, judicious use
of Botox and fillers, and then the odd sutra suspension
or minimally invasive technique. You can look 10 year s
younger forever without needing a scalpel.
EM: Treatments are mos tly similar to people in their 30s
with an increase in treatments to deal with hormonal
changes . Pigmentation and redness is a more prevalent
issue and laser such as Picosure and IPL are fantastic
treatment methods with little downtime . Volume
loss increases, necessitating the need for volume
replacement with either f iller s or thread lifting.
MZ: Patient in their 40s need to incor por ate stem
cell ingredients in their skincare. Wor k with anti-wrinkle
injections to improve movement lines is an option, or we
have more natural options available like grow th factor treatments
which stimulate your skin collagen and improve the quality of the skin. Der mal
filler may even be required to volumise some of the areas where fat pads of the
face have depleted.
SM: For the Gen Xers and the baby boomers, par ticularly women, already
ageing is a par t of their topogr aphy, so they’re interested in what treatments they
can do non-surgically to look 5-8 years younger but not too done.
EM: In this age group, replacing lost volume and stimulating collagen in a natur al way is key through dermal
fillers , collagen induction therapy and thread lifting. We are more aggressive with laser and light based
therapies for sun damaged skin, which improves f ine lines and wrinkles and vascular problems such as
rosacea and visible blood vessels, and evens out skin irregularities and pigmentation.
MZ: Patients in their 50s are looking at skincare that will both turn back DNA damage and
provide a good hydr ating moisturiser. Due to issues like menopause, women may require Max G
for redness in the skin or even f ixing broken capillaries. Patients’ skin either goes quite thick as
they age or the other way, thinner. For thick skins we like to laser or of fer chemical peels . Use a
good vitamin A , moistur iser and ex foliating cleanser. Whereas thin skin patients need to build
their skin quality by using stem cell creams, and have grow th factor treatments.
SM: For the older women, the mature generation of the late baby boomer and the parents
of baby boomers, it’s surgery of the face – mini face lifts. For men it has always been and
continues to be management of the love handle, management of the 50 -year old male boobie,
bags under the eyes and double chin. It’s to get that match.com prof ile so you can date someone
younger than you, not someone your age .
