What’s the biggest return on investment when it comes to your skin?
A question we often get asked is, “Where is the biggest return on investment when it comes to my skin? And should I focus my time and money on regular medical grade skin treatments or high quality home care products?”
When you’re young, you really want to protect the good quality skin that you have. Medical grade skin care products (one of which has to be a good sunscreen!) and a maintenance skin treatment plan, will build a strong foundation for the years to come.
As your skin changes over time, so should your approach to skin care. Medical treatments like microneedling, chemical peels, PRP injections, work on a cellular level to restructure cells, ordering them and improving your skin’s quality, which means you will see results. These treatments become more important as your skin ages. Medical grade skin care products may become the ‘maintenance plan’ during this period, but they are still an essential part of the program.
So the answer to the question is both, but with a stronger emphasis on medical treatments as your skin ages. Remember, what you put in is what you get out. You need to be consistent and committed in order to see results.
Want to know where to begin?
Have a Visia Skin Analysis by our aesthetician and get an understanding of the current state of your skin. She will prescribe a treatment plan to prioritise your skin’s immediate concerns with high quality skin care products and/or treatments
Feeling a little more adventurous?
Book a consultation with one of our doctors, who will explain more invasive options such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal filler, threads, vital injector and other doctor administered treatments.
If you are considering surgical options, you can schedule a facial rejuvenation consult with Dr Rory Dower. He will get an understanding of what you want to achieve and explain the options available, including non-invasive treatments like filler and anti-wrinkle injections, as well as surgical procedures like blepharoplasty, fat grafting and facelift surgery. He will also give his advice about what he believes will work best for what you are wanting to achieve.
The earlier you start actively treating your skin and the more disciplined you are about your home care regimen, the more you can roll back the ageing process, and the later you’ll feel the desire for plastic surgery if at all.
