As we age, our skin becomes prone to wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. However, with the help of aesthetic skin care treatments like Botox® and fillers, we can reverse these signs of aging and achieve a youthful, glowing complexion.
Aesthetics treatments have become increasingly popular over the years, and they’re now a popular addition to many people’s skincare routines. In this blog post, we’ll explore what aesthetics are, what skin problems they can help with, and the different types of aesthetic treatments available at Tonic Day Spa, such as Botox ® and fillers.
What is Aesthetics?
Aesthetics, also known as non-surgical cosmetic procedures, are treatments designed to combat signs of ageing, rejuvenate and refresh skin. The most common areas for aesthetic treatments are the face, neck, and décolletage. However, these treatments can also be used to help with excessive sweating, remove pigmentation, treat acne, scars, skin tags, and moles, and improve the appearance of veins.
Two types of injectable treatments that fall under the category of aesthetics are botulinum toxin, or commonly known as Botox®, and dermal fillers. Botox is used to relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while dermal fillers are used to add volume and smooth out fine lines. Both of these treatments are safe and must only be administered by a qualified Aesthetic Clinician.
Non-injectable skin treatments such as skin assessment and skincare consultation, chemical peels, and microneedling are also popular forms of aesthetics. Skin assessment and skincare consultation can help identify skin concerns and suggest personalised skincare routines, while chemical peels can help treat acne, fine lines, and sun damage. Micro-needling can also help rejuvenate and tighten skin.
In summary, aesthetics can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to acne and pigmentation. By choosing a qualified Aesthetic Clinician, you can feel confident that your aesthetic treatments are safe and effective.
What Skin Problems Can Aesthetics Help With?
The team at Tonic Day Spa are experienced in treating a wide spectrum of cosmetic conditions and skin problems. Aesthetics aims to not only improve the appearance of the skin but also the confidence of the client. There are several skin problems that aesthetics can help with, including acne, acne scarring, cheeks, enlarged pores, and eye bags.
Acne can be effectively treated with a combination of prescription medications, skincare and non-invasive technologies. This safe and effective approach can help reduce the severity of acne breakouts and minimize the risk of scarring. Additionally, enlarged pores can be addressed using non-invasive technologies such as micro-needling and chemical peels. These treatments can reduce pore size, leading to a smoother, more even complexion.
Aesthetics is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. If you are struggling with any of the skin problems mentioned above, it may be time to consult with a doctor who specialises in aesthetics. They can recommend the best treatments for your individual needs and help you achieve the beautiful, radiant skin you deserve.
What Are Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of aesthetic treatment that uses hyaluronic acid-based gels to enhance, correct, and restore areas of concern on the face and neck. Fillers can be used to address a range of issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume and contour, and sagging skin.
Choosing the right filler product depends on the individual’s needs and desired outcomes. For instance, some fillers are specifically designed to enhance cheekbones or lips, while others may be better suited for smoothing out wrinkles or deep creases.
One of the latest advancements in filler technology is the patented Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA®) technology. Unlike traditional fillers, which can result in an overly “done” appearance, RHA® is formulated to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid found in our skin. This allows it to work in synchronisation with facial expressions, providing a natural-looking result that moves and feels just like real skin.
If you’re considering fillers as part of your skincare routine, it’s important to choose an experienced clinician who can guide you through the process and help you achieve the best possible outcome. A qualified aesthetician will take into account your unique facial features, skin type, and overall health when selecting the right filler for you. With the right care and maintenance, fillers can help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance and boost your overall confidence.
What is Botox ®?
Botox ® is a neurotoxin made from the bacteria that causes botulism. When injected in small doses, it can prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time. Botox ® injections are often used to smooth wrinkles on the face and treat neck spasms, sweating, overactive bladder, lazy eye, and other conditions.
The injections work by blocking certain chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. Botox ® injections are usually safe when under the care of a licenced and skilled Aesthetic Clinician. However, possible side effects of Botox® injections include dry mouth, fatigue, headache, droopy eyelids, crooked smile, and muscle weakness. The medicine may also spread to parts of the body where it isn’t supposed to go.
It’s important to note that Botox ® is a prescription medicine and must be used only under the care of a licenced and skilled Aesthetic Clinician. It’s also crucial to tell your Aesthetic Clinician if you have had any type of Botox ® injection within the past four months or if you take blood thinners.
