What Treatments help Ageing Skin?

What do we know about ageing skin. Microneedling and LED Light therapy. OliviereWilson. Dermaroller

Much has been written about ageing skin and the fact we start to lose elasticity and collagen in our early thirties. Here, we explore the wider causes of skin ageing, give you some tips on skin care and how microneedling and LED light therapy treatments can help. 

THE MAJOR SIGNS OF AGEING SKIN

On the physical front, symptoms include wrinkles, loss of facial volume, irregular pigmentation, loss of elasticity, ‘crepey’ looking skin and enlarged pores. Yes, that's right.....enlarging pores can be a sign of ageing skin. This is because the levels of collagen and elastin decline and our skin therefore becomes less firm and elastic. The pores start to 'relax' and slacken.

As you grow and mature, so does your skin. It will undergo a plethora of changes. Daily life is full of destructive elements that exacerbate skin ageing, such as: sun, pollution, lack of sleep, poor diet and stress. This is why the skin matrix begins to lose its structure and integrity. There is no skincare routine that will reverse the ageing process, however there are tools and products that we can use to harness the power of ageing and keep our complexion healthy and radiant.

It's far easier to take preventative measures early than undergo corrective procedures later. Prevention rather than cure!

WHAT CAN I DO AT HOME TO PREVENT AGEING SKIN?

As we age our cell turnover slows. To help strengthen your skin and combat the visible effects of ageing, use Retinol in the evenings, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C first thing in the morning. Retinol is one of the easiest ways to boost glow, help clear up breakouts, minimise the appearance of sun damage and maintain a beautiful complexion.

TOPICALLY APPLIED PRODUCTS

RETINOL

A skin perfecting ingredient. Be sure to select a Retinol cream that is suitable for your skin. The following is a good guide to OTC products:

- Choose gentler products for dryer skin such as Avene's Physiolift Night Balm.

- Medium strength for combination and uncomplicated skin such as Medik8's R-Retinoate.

- Stronger products for oily skin such as Skinceuticals Retinol 0.3%-0.5%. Skinceuticals also have a high strength 1% option.

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture magnet and a fantastic way to add hydration to the skin. Use this morning and evening and opt for a fragrance free brand. Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin hold moisture which is extremely important to keep it plump and supple. Skin hydration is key as we start to age. 

VITAMIN C

Brightening treatments using antioxidant rich Vitamin C serums can also work in your favour to compensate for the lack of moisture and improve overall dullness. Apply Vitamin C serum in the morning on cleansed skin, under your SPF. It's a true multitasker and a must have ingredient for every skin. It is a great antioxidant and should be used by everyone at all ages. It stimulates collagen production and helps protect our skin from sun and pollution damage.

EYE CREAM

Always use an eye cream. It helps build and plump the layers of the skin around your eyes, helping address crow's feet and puffiness.

SPF30/50

Use a broad spectrum SPF30/50. This should be applied daily even in the winter. There are some lovely products now available that are perfect to protect and moisturise the skin eg LaRoche-Posay or Heliocare. With these products you shouldn't need to apply a further moisturiser on top unless your skin still feels dry.

TREATMENTS

MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is a fantastic way to give the skin a nudge to remind it to keep making new collagen. Two times per week treat your skin with a microneedling device to create micro-channels in the skin, followed by Hyaluronic Acid or Peptide serum. This treatment will lead to firmer, more hydrated, 'bouncy' skin with a more refined appearance.  Applying Skincare products after microneedling will amplify absorption by up to 300% and will penetrate into the deep layers of the skin.

LED LIGHT THERAPY - OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW MASK

To support the changes in your skin and mood, we highly recommend the introduction of LED to your skincare routine. The OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW Mask is portable, flexible and convenient. Ten minutes per day means it is a convenient addition to your skincare routine and offers big results!

Each treatment consists of dual clinically proven wavelengths of light: Red 633nm and Near-Infrared 830nm. Light therapy will trigger a positive reaction in your body, and in turn will help balance your feel-good and stress hormones, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and increase collagen production for healthy plumped skin. However, these skin benefits aren’t just a beautiful thing for a glowing complexion - increased collagen and improved circulation is also helpful for people suffering from musculoskeletal issues or living with chronic pain.
