5 Ways To Maintain Young & Beautiful Skin

When it comes to preserving our young, good looks, there is really one main external feature that needs to be treated well and maintained — our skin. While there are various haircuts, hair colours and nail treatments that can create a more youthful appearance, it’s the condition of our face and neck skin that makes all the difference to how young we look.    As a team of qualified medical professionals who provide both cosmetic and advanced skin treatments to women and men across Sydney, we know a thing or two about skin. To help keep your skin looking youthful as you age, we've put together a list of 5 ways to stay young and beautiful.  
  1. Platelet-rich plasma therapy
  Often referred to as the “vampire facial”, platelet-rich plasma treatments promote collagen production — which is responsible for healthy and tight skin. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and our existing stores break down over time. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are an incredibly popular solution for those who want to know how to stay young and beautiful, especially among celebrities like Kim Kardashian West.   By drawing a blood sample and extracting your plasma and platelets, your cosmetic medical professional can create a concentrated sample of PRP and re-inject it into your skin to promote collagen production. Those who regularly have this treatment see a visible reduction of fine lines, scars and even hyperpigmentation — making it one of our top skin treatments for staying young and beautiful.
  1. Retinol peels
  As you age, you may find yourself wondering how to look young and beautiful at 40, 50, 60 and older. Popular with those who want tighter and brighter skin, retinol or timeless peels are suitable for sensitive, scarred and prematurely aging skin.    Treatment such as Essential Peptide Peel and Timeless Peel contain vitamin A (retinol) and stimulating lactic acid, both of which are well-renowned anti-aging powerhouses, these peels deeply penetrate your layers of skin to encourage cell turnover. By removing dead skin cells, triggering protein synthesis and restoring your skin’s moisture barrier, your skin will look noticeably less lined, wrinkled and dull — leaving your face looking bright, tight and youthful. 
  1. PDO Threads
  Thread lifts are a relatively new form of non-surgical face lift. If your face has lax or sagging skin and you want a tighter, fresher, more youthful look, this treatment may be suitable. There are no cuts or incisions.   PDO threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein and are super safe. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. It also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid, both substances are key to maintaining firm, youthful looking skin!
  1. Micro-needling
  As you know, collagen is the essential protein we need to have tight, bright skin. For those asking how to stay young and beautiful, micro-needling is the answer to rejuvenated, young and collagen-rich skin.    Creating tiny tears in your skin with a fine-needle roller or pen, your medical professional is essentially creating small sores. While this might sound counterproductive, the body’s natural healing process actually increases collagen production — tightening, smoothing and brightening your skin. During your micro-needling session, your skin will also be treated with various rejuvenating vitamins and minerals, so you can enjoy the effects of increased collagen production and recently treated skin.    
  1. Anti-wrinkle injections
  Last but not least, is Australia’s fastest-growing treatment for maintaining young and beautiful skin — anti-wrinkle injections. If you don’t know what to do to stay young and beautiful, remember the famous saying, “prevention is better than cure”. By preventing the formation and settling of wrinkles in your skin, anti-wrinkle injections work to keep you looking young as you get older.    Intercepting the signals between the nerves and muscles in your face, anti-wrinkle injections decrease your facial movements and skin stress — helping you maintain a youthful and beautiful face. Usually injected into high-use areas such as your crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines and bunny lines, anti-wrinkle injections prevent the formation of wrinkles and soften their appearance. Perfect for those with light lines or those who have beautiful, youthful skin and want to keep it that way!    Book a treatment with a cosmetic expert today    Providing all of the above treatments at our clinics in Wolli Creek, Penrith and Wollongong, The Cosmetic Lounge is the place to go for young, tight and beautiful skin.
