Antiageing through The Ages

What To Consider & When

Surgical and non-surgical facial treatments have traditionally been linked to ‘hiding’ your age. People have mainly undergone these procedures to restore a youthful appearance. However, today’s cosmetic procedures, including those dubbed antiageing treatments are increasingly being undertaken by the younger population. People, regardless their age are beginning to tune into the benefits of these procedures as well.

Whether social media, or consistently seeing at our face on Zoom has resulted in an increase uptake of these procedures, the experts say there is a ‘time and place’. Dr Tony Prochazka, Cosmetic Surgeon at Cosmetic Avenue, Melbourne has a few basic guidelines on the best time to begin some of these popular treatments.

 

THE AGEING PROCESS

It can be difficult to set an age in stone as to when to begin your antiageing course. This is because the skin ages at very different rates, depending on a variety of factors. Some of those factors include:

  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure (a major one for us Aussies)
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Diet and exercise
  • Stress
  • Excessive facial expressions
  • Smoke and other pollutants

For some men and women, the ageing process may begin quite early, so they will see visible signs by the time they celebrate their 30th birthday. Others may not become bothered by lines and facial laxity until their 40s or even later. The best gauge for when to start anti-ageing treatments is the condition of your skin, not the candles on your birthday cake.

TREATMENTS IN THE 30S

Signs of ageing may begin to appear in the 30s, but they are usually fairly subtle and do not require the most invasive treatments to produce the best results. By this point, you should definitely have a well-established skincare routine in place and understand that daily SPF application is a non-negotiable…yes, even if it’s raining.
