In Your 20s

If you haven’t started already, your first decade of adulthood is the ideal time to begin taking skin care seriously. Paying attention to your skin at an early age limits premature ageing and gives you a solid foundation for the decades to come. Dr liu, principal dermatologist at Northside Dermatology, often recommend the following treatments and lifestyle tips for patients in their 20s:

  • Skin Needling: Skin needling is a gentle, low-cost treatment that helps with general skin texture and mild acne scars.
  • Hydrafacial: Hydrafacial is suitable for patients of any age who want to improve skin clarity and optimise the effects of cosmeceutical ingredients to achieve a healthier and more radiant complexion.
  • Cosmeceuticals: Incorporate ingredients like vitamin A, niacinamide, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) into your skincare routine.
  • Sunscreen and other types of sun protection are the most powerful rejuvenation tools at any age.

In Your 30s

As you enter your 30s, the visible signs of ageing start to emerge. Your complexion may look dull or tired, fine lines and wrinkles may appear, sun damage and pigmentation may materialise, and you may notice facial volume loss or reduced elasticity in your skin. Treatments in your 30s aim to address these changes. We recommend:

  • Genesis Peel: Laser Genesis sends short pulses of light deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, minimise background redness and reduce textural irregularities, whilst the peel provides an exfoliating and brightening effect on the skin’s surface.
  • Picosure Pro or Q switched laser for pigmentation or rejuvenation
  • 1927nm Thulium Laser: to improve skin clarify and texture.
  • Nanofractional RF: Nanofractional RF provides a superficial ablative effect that evens surface textural and pigmentary irregularities and simultaneously uses fractionated energy to stimulate collagen production.
  • Muscle Relaxants: At this age, many patients benefit from muscle-relaxing injections to prevent and reduce wrinkles.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers can be used to enhance and glamourise your features.
  • Skin Needling: Skin needling is a gentle, low-cost treatment that helps to improve skin texture and tone, minimise the appearance of fine lines and generate new collagen.
  • Hydrafacial: Hydrafacial is suitable for patients of any age who want to improve skin clarity and optimise the effects of cosmeceutical ingredients to achieve a healthier and more radiant complexion.
  • Cosmeceuticals: Incorporate ingredients like vitamin A, niacinamide, AHA and DNA repair enzymes into your skincare routine.
  • Sunscreen and other types of sun protection are the most powerful rejuvenation tools at any age.

In Your 40s

Volume loss, sun damage, skin laxity, redness and wrinkles become more pronounced in your 40s. This is also a time when skin cancer and precancerous lesions become more serious concerns. With our advanced treatments, it’s possible to make your skin look a decade younger without surgery. We recommend:

  • Laser for Redness and Pigment: With the Cutera Excel V laser system, we can target broken capillaries and solar freckling.
  • 1927 Thulium Laser: This is a laser that resurfaces the skin, removes surface pigmentation and improves skin texture.  It is completely customisable in treatment intensity to suit individual schedules.
  • Picosure Pro and Q switched laser for pigmentation
  • RF duo: This combined treatment incorporates both Nanofractional RF and Venus DiamondPolar to improve skin texture, surface irregularities and tightness.
  • Genesis Peel: Laser Genesis sends short pulses of light deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, minimise background redness and reduce textural irregularities, whilst the peel provides an exfoliating and brightening effect on the skin’s surface.
  • Muscle Relaxants: At this age, many patients benefit from muscle-relaxing injections for the glabellar area, crow’s feet, forehead lines, downturning at the corners of the mouth and dimpling of the chin.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers can be used to replenish volume in the temples, mid-cheeks, jawline and corner of the mouth; a minimal amount of product is needed at this stage to achieve a good result. A thorough facial assessment is required to tailor your treatment to your specific anatomy and features.
  • Skin Needling: Skin needling is a gentle, low-cost treatment that helps to improve skin texture and tone, minimise the appearance of fine lines and generate new collagen.
  • Hydrafacial: Hydrafacial is suitable for patients of any age who want to improve skin clarity and optimise the effects of cosmeceutical ingredients to achieve a healthier and more radiant complexion.
  • Cosmeceuticals: Incorporate ingredients like vitamin A, niacinamide, AHA and DNA repair enzymes into your skincare routine
  • Sunscreen and other types of sun protection are the most powerful rejuvenation tools at any age

In Your 50s

A nutritious diet, regular exercise and good skincare habits are essential to retaining an active, healthy lifestyle in your 50s. In addition to regular self-exams and professional check-ups for skin cancer, regular cosmetic treatments can keep you looking and feeling your best. We recommend:

  • Hybrid laser layering:  A combination of 1927nm thulium laser and CO2 laser to address surface pigmentation, wrinkles and skin texture.
  • Trifecta Rejuvenation: This is our signature treatment that combines the laser for redness and pigment, Nanofractional RF and Venus DiamondPolar to address imperfections on the skin surface while improving skin texture and tightness.
  • Eye Lift: A nonsurgical eye lift can be achieved by using a combination of dermal filler to the temple and brow area and a small amount of muscle relaxants.
  • Muscle Relaxants: At this age, many patients benefit from muscle-relaxing injections to help with wrinkles appearing on the upper lip, frown lines, downturning at the corners of the mouth and dimpling of the chin.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers can be used to improve cheek fat pad loss, and replenish volume around the mouth and temples.
  • Jawline Fillers: Careful placement of dermal fillers along the jaw can address jowls and loss of jawline definition.
  • Hydrafacial: Hydrafacial is suitable for patients of any age who want to improve skin clarity and optimise the effects of cosmeceutical ingredients to achieve a healthier and more radiant complexion.
  • Cosmeceuticals: Incorporate ingredients like vitamin A, niacinamide, AHA, DNA repair enzymes, growth factors and peptides into your skincare routine.
  • Sunscreen and other types of sun protection are the most powerful rejuvenation tools at any age.

In Your 60s+

You may be retired, but your skincare routine is still hard at work. Beautiful skin in your 60s and beyond is achieved by addressing skin laxity, poor skin texture, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation, pronounced wrinkles and volume loss. Many solutions don’t involve expensive, invasive surgery. We recommend:

  • Fractional CO2 laser – the gold standard in laser resurfacing addressing deeper wrinkles, skin laxity, texture and pigmentation.  This can be done alone or in combination with 1927nm thulium laser.
  • RF Peel: Our signature RF Peel combines Nanofractional RF treatment with a TCA peel. This treatment produces enhanced resurfacing effects and deeper collagen stimulation than Venus Viva treatment alone.
  • Double Chin Fat-Dissolving Injections: These cosmetic injections dissolve fat that causes submental fullness (“double chin”) to create a slimmer, more contoured neck and jawline.
  • Trifecta Rejuvenation: This signature treatment combines the laser for redness and pigment, Nanofractional RF and Venus DiamondPolar to address imperfections on the skin surface while improving skin texture and tightness.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers can be used to address mid-cheek volume loss and loss of jawline definition.
  • Hydrafacial: Hydrafacial is suitable for patients of any age who want to improve skin clarity and optimise the effects of cosmeceutical ingredients to achieve a healthier and more radiant complexion.
  • Cosmeceuticals: Incorporate ingredients like vitamin A, niacinamide, AHA, DNA repair enzymes, growth factors and peptides into your skincare routine.
  • Sunscreen and other types of sun protection are the most powerful rejuvenation tools at any age.
