Making the Most of Your ThirtiesProcedures for RejuvenationPosted on: 21st June 2015
As we mentioned in our last blog post ‘Making the Most of
Your Twenties – Procedures for Prevention’, the best approach to warding off
the signs of ageing depends significantly on your age.
What you’re looking for in a beauty product or a non-surgical
cosmetic treatment is going to be completely different once you’ve reached your
thirties, so this is the decade to which we’re devoting this post.
When, despite your best efforts, you’re beginning to notice fine
lines and wrinkles (especially around your eyes, nose and mouth), it’s
important to remember that while you shouldn’t give up on preventative
measures, the time has come to start looking at procedures that can help
address these signs of ageing.
The anti-ageing industry is vast, so naturally there are a
number of products and procedures available to aid you on your quest. In fact,
there’s so much help available that knowing where to start can be confusing, to
say the least.
Intense pulsed light treatments (also known as a phototherapy)
are a non-laser, non-ablative skin rejuvenation therapy. IPL treatment works by
directing broad spectrum light energy into the skin’s deeper layers whilst
leaving the surface intact, so it’s less invasive than some of the other
procedures mentioned here.
The penetrating light used in IPL converts to heat energy in the
middle layer of the skin which increases its production of collagen – the
substance that gives tissue its rigidity. This stimulation of collagen
production results in improved skin tone and texture, so is great for anyone
looking to ‘freshen up’ their appearance.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum toxin injections are an effective way to treat both
fine lines and deeper wrinkles. Also known as ‘wrinkle relaxers’ these
injections smooth out wrinkles by blocking the signals between specific nerves
and muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing furrows in the skin.

As we age our skin loses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring
sugar that absorbs moisture in the skin to keep it well hydrated and looking
The majority of dermal fillers are made up of this hyaluronic
acid, so when injected into problem areas they work to attract and hold
moisture within the skin, rejuvenating it and filling fine lines. They can also
be used to add subtle volume where necessary.
Please see our Face tab for more information.
Chemical peels come in different strengths, and each of these
strengths is best suited to different skin types. For those in their thirties,
a medium depth chemical peel will give a more dramatic result than the
superficial or ‘light’ peel recommended for those in their twenties.
The solution used in a medium-depth chemical peel is usually
derived from trichloroacetic acid, which penetrates deeper into the skin to
remove the top layer. This trauma to the skin increases collagen production and
cell growth as a part of the healing process, so once the damaged top layer
peels away the skin below appears significantly healthier, with a reduction in
the appearance of sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles.
We carry out Chemical peels to help increase cell turnover for better looking skin.
The above is not exhaustive but using great skincare and wearing
sun protection with at least SPF30 will reduce the signs of ageing.
