People no longer have to go under the knife to help give skin the appearance of looking younger.

Cosmetic specialists offer dozens of treatments to refresh the skin, without a blade in sight. But where do you start?

With so many options available, do some research to find out what is best for you.

Here are a few of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures available at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine.

Chemical Peels

many women swear that chemical peels minimise wrinkles, reduce the appearance of sun damage spots and plump fine lines.

Chemical peels remove old skin with an acid solution so that new skin may grow in its place.  Peels can be undertaken in less than an hour, with minimal recovery time.

Deeper peels use trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which causes the skin to feel tight for 24 hours:it may flake or scab afterwards.  Some clinics offer deep peels that reach all the way to the reticular dermal level.  These require at least a week off work and can cause the skin to blister.

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Hello (Term prohibited by TGA).  A favourite of Hollywood celebs, (Term prohibited by TGA) an anti-wrinkle injection is injected into the muscle associated with specific skin creases, causing wrinkles to relax and soften in appearance.

The effect wears off after several months.  The cost of a single unit is about $6, but you will need many units for the forehead.  This is a prescription only drug, so make sure you choose a clinic such as Advanced Cosmetic Medicine where there is an appropriately trained doctor on hand.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are commonly injected into the face to create an appearance of fuller lips, fill in deep fold lines and pad out hollow cheeks and eyes.

Collagen was previously the standard filler, however, these days injections of natural product (term forbidden by TGA) are common.  This treatment is expensive…expect to pay up to $500. Another more expensive option is fat transfer, in which fat is removed from one part of the body and injected into the face.

Thread Lift

Dubbed the “lunchtime facelift”, a thread facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that seeks to “raise” the brows and cheeks, neck, jowls, and soften the appearance of lines.  During the procedure, a cosmetic surgeon makes a tiny incision into the skin and then inserts thin threads into the face.  The threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth skin.  The procedure is performed in less than two hours.

Laser Treatments

Most people have heard of laser hair removal.  However, laser treatment can also be used to reduce acne, the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation.  Laser therapy directs short, concentrated pulses of light at the skin surface.  In the first 24 hours after treatment, the skin may feel like it has been sunburnt.

Factor 4

FACTOR4 is highly concentrated and super-rich plasma containing four times more growth factors than any brand Blood Rich Injection product. FACTOR4 is autologous (harvested from the body’s own substances) and depending on the patient’s needs is used to treat wrinkles and crepiness in areas of the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands, dark eye circles, stretch marks, scars with bonus effects of significant reducing in static face lines and tightening of the skin.
