So, let’s talk about the dreaded W word…Wrinkles. The appearance of which we are all either trying to minimise or dreading (if you are so lucky to not be experiencing them yet). We are constantly trying to find the best ways to reduce them or in an ideal world completely remove them.

So, let’s talk about all things wrinkles, from what they are to how we can reduce them. From the best products and the modern-day technology, you can deploy to attack them without reaching for the invasive options.

Why do we get wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a result of ageing. As we age, our face loses fat (collagen) muscle strength and elasticity, whilst the speed of collegian production starts to slow down, which results in skin sagging and lines forming.

Sun damage is also a speeds the skin’s aging process, especially in people who tend to burn easily. It breaks down the elastin fibbers and collagen in skin. Without these supportive connective tissues, the skin loses strength and flexibility.

How do I prevent wrinkles?

We start the process of prevention from a very young age…SPF 50! This is the most important thing that you can do to prevent wrinkles from the start. No matter what the weather or season, you should always be applying SPF to your skin.

On average from the age of 25 the rate your skin produces collagen starts to slow down, so you so this is a good time to start taking collagen supplements to help increase the rate and therefore, slow down the rate of wrinkles. Our salon owner takes Absolute Collagen sachets.

How do I reduce wrinkles?

We believe in taking a non-surgical route to solve skin issues, and wrinkles are no exception. A good place to start is to ensure you have a high-quality anti-ageing product.

Anti-ageing is the biggest skin concern that we encounter in the salons, so we can confidently say this is something we are experts at. With everything from at home products to in salon treatments, we have the perfect solution for you.

Here is just a brief introduction to what is available, but if you need more information, you can visit the pages on the website for the detailed list of our treatments or contact us and we can arrange a free of charge facial consultation to assist you.

Treatments

As anti-ageing is the most common skin care concern, you’ll be pleased to know we have wide range of treatments that ensure you receive the most suitable treatment for your skin. If you are looking for long term and visible results, then it is essential that you start a course of treatments but that could be a combination of different facials rather than just one.

Think of it going on a diet, you’re not going to see results from just eating healthily for one day, the same works for the skin. You need to care for your skin many times before the effects really start to be visible longer term.

All the brands we have offer facials that that target lines and wrinkles. But here are some of the more advanced treatments that we would highly recommend.

CACI

CACI is at the forefront of non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Their non-surgical face lift system has been fighting those pesky wrinkles for over 23 years (so they really are the best of the best). The latest Synergy machine that we have at Cedar harnesses the power of LED light therapy whilst using microcurrent to stimulate the tissue under the skin surface to aid the production of collagen. The synergy of these two technologies provides visible and long-lasting results.

This is one of our most popular treatments. Our clients have seen incredible results. If you want to see some before and after pictures as well as read up a little more on the various CACI treatments, then you can read the blog we have all about what CACI.

Microneedling with SkinPen

SkinPen Improves the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, tackles the appearance of unsightly acne scars and is the ideal treatment for many pigmentation conditions.

The SkinPen® state-of-the-art, anti-aging treatment stimulates skin’s natural ability to repair itself. The body begins to breakdown damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. These cells repair and remodel the injured tissue, producing new collagen and elastin. By taking advantage of that natural process by creating hundreds of temporary or micro-channels, in the skin.

Visible Age Reverse

Stimulation of epidermal regeneration by the Age Influx concentrate, smoothing of the skin by the Vibrolissante electrode, then equalization of the dermis by frequency diffusion via the Vibrodermie electrode: three essential steps that allow to visibly and durably fight the signs of skin aging.

Immediately after the treatment is performed by your therapist, and even in the hours that follow, you can see effective anti-aging results on the critical areas affected by aging: forehead wrinkles and frown lines, crow’s feet wrinkles, nasolabial folds and bitterness folds, as well as neck wrinkles.

Déesse LED Light Treatment

This mask can look like something from a horror movie at first glance, however it really is the opposite. Déesse uses low-level light therapy (LLLT) by the way of medical-grade surface-mounted, light emitting diodes (LEDS) to expose the skin to 5 clinically proven wavelengths of light.

This is the perfect option for anyone that loves a more relaxing facial without the fancy machines because you can add this treatment on to any of our other facials. You can even have the mask on whilst you’re having your fingers and toes done as it really is that convenient!
