There are many aspects to modern beauty care and anti-ageing treatments that have revolutionised the industry in Australia.
First is the technological advancements made in this field. Procedures that not so long ago required surgical intervention and prolonged downtime and recuperation periods are now done in sessions lasting less than an hour with patients resuming normal activities immediately after. All this is thanks to machines with cutting edge features and based on advanced technologies and innovations.
The second angle is affordability, a natural offshoot of technological development. Complex processes that once were the exclusive preserve of celebrities and the rich are now affordable with treatments being within the reach of the common person. It is this factor that has helped the beauty care industry grow exponentially in Australia and top of the line beauty care clinics and spas have mushroomed in every major city as well as small towns in the country.
What then are some of the advanced beauty care and anti-ageing treatments available in Australia?
Laser IPL permanent hair removal
There are a large number of clinics in Australia that offers this service. Laser hair removal is generally carried out on the face, legs, armpits, forearms and bikini line. The machines that initially used for permanent hair removal were not effective on grey or light coloured hair on dark skin but improvements in IPL technology and the introduction of ND: YAG lasers have ensured that hair removal is equally effective on all hair and skin colour and texture.
How does this process work? A handpiece that is connected to the main laser machine is held near the area being treated. Laser light beams that enter the skin are absorbed by melanin which is the pigment that gives hair its colour and is situated at the root of the hair follicle. Light energy is transformed to heat energy, destroying melanin and along with it the strand of hair. The wavelength of the laser beams can be controlled to suit different hair and skin types.
On an average, about 5 sessions are required for complete permanent hair removal. This is because laser treatments are effective on growing hair and at any given time, some percentage of hair on the treated area will be at the resting phase. Additionally, superior machines offer quick and optimised permanent hair removal and the reason why clinics and spas prefer to install such equipment. For instance, an IPL machine will give assured and guaranteed results when operated by qualified technicians. This is because the company is one of the leading importers and distributors of top beauty care equipment in Australia, sourcing them from leading manufacturers from across the globe.
Anti-ageing treatment with dermal fillers
The obvious and very visual effects of ageing are crow’s feet at the corner the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles on the face, frown lines and hollowed out cheeks due to shifting and depletion of fat pads. The good news is that all these can be partially and in some cases fully corrected with dermal fillers which take care of facial contours, plump out the lips and soften the overall appearance by eliminating the fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a young, fresh and rejuvenated appearance and skin texture. Anti-wrinkle injections and lip injections are some of the popular treatments practised in Australia to do away with the marks of ageing.
To know how dermal fillers work, it is necessary to go into the process of ageing. From the age of around 25, the body stops producing collagen and elastin, two vital proteins that are instrumental in making sure that body tissues stay firm, elastic and taut. When production stops, the existing levels begin to reduce. Hence, the body loses its capability to remain young and fresh thereby developing the typical signs of ageing.
There are two types of dermal fillers that are widely used in Australia. The first is one that contains a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule that attracts water and binds it to the skin. It then works with the existing collagen and elastin to give a youthful appearance. Synthetic dermal fillers on the other hand contain the protein collagen and thus supplement the depleted stock in the body. This brings back the smooth and supple texture of the skin partly reversing the signs of ageing.
Apart from anti-ageing processes, dermal fillers are widely used for cosmetic enhancements too. Lip injections are very popular in Australia. These fillers give the lips a full and glamorous look and prominently enhance the lip line.
Laser IPL skin rejuvenation procedures
Apart from dermal fillers, anti-ageing treatments as well as removal of skin blemishes can also be included in the laser skin treatment options available at renowned clinics. These machines offer safe and optimised skin rejuvenation processes that are painless and quick. Their speed of operations makes it a favourite with salon and spa owners who can increase manifold, the number of clients they can treat in any given period of time.
In this process, laser means from a hand held device are targeted at the area under treatment. The beams of light enter the top layer of the skin and boosts production of collagen, the protein that gives skin the young and youthful looks and texture.
A large number of treatments can be carried out with this IPL laser machine. Elimination of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and tightening up loose and flabby facial skin can be effectively carried out. Further, it is also possible to remove acne and acne spots, birth marks and coffee spots and take up vascular therapies and photo rejuvenation.
Australia is home to some of the finest aesthetic beauty treatments in the world. Apart from the ones mentioned here, spas and clinics carry out permanent cosmetic tattoos, eyebrow feathering and importantly painless tattoo removal processes.
