Skin Rejuvenation Adelaide
Ageing takes it’s toll on us all. As we begin to get older we notice changes in our skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, loss of volume, large pores and pigmentation. Skin rejuvenation is now a possibility for all of us.
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we specialise in facial and skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing procedures. After the age of twenty our skin begins to lose the vital building blocks that are necessary for vital, youthful appearing skin. These building blocks are; collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The goal of facial and skin rejuvenation is to replace these vital building blocks in the skin to restore the skins youthful appearance.
There are two basic approached to restoring these basic building blocks. Dermal fillers are an artificial way of supplementing the skin with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid works by attracting water molecules to boost the volume of your skin. Although dermal fillers can produce instant results, their effects lasts only for about three months.
A more natural approach to skin rejuvenation, however one that takes much longer to take effect, is to induce the body to produce elastin and collagen. Not only is it natural but the results are longer lasting as well. Techniques that induce the body to produce more collagen include; Laser Genesis, Thread Lift, Factor 4, Skin Needling and Bio Stimulation Dermal Fillers.
Interestingly, anti wrinkle injections work by causing the muscle to relax and the skin to stretch as a consequence. The effect of stretching the skin is to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The goal of skin rejuvenation is to restore lost volume, which anti wrinkle injections do not do. Often the combination of anti wrinkle injections together with a volume enhancing procedure such as dermal fillers or factor 4, has the best results.
We look forward to your visit.

The techniques of skin rejuvenation as described above, can equally be employed to rejuvenate the skin on any part of the body. Bio Stimulation dermal fillers are becoming the standard treatment for rejuvenation of hands. Once again, a combination of treatments often yields the best results. Hand pigmentation can be treated with the 532nm Excel V laser, for those that are affected by age spots.
