GillianE is been in the industry for over 25 years now, she has seen many trends come and go. Over the course of her practice, what treatments are the most effective?

GillianE: Personally, I see great results from treatments in non-surgical facelifts using micro-current technology, skin peels, lasers, microdermabrasion and radio frequencies.

In general, it is crucial that you have an experienced professional perform a medical aesthetics treatment. A knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body and face is important to understand the relationship between the device and the body to yield the best results as well as to avoid complications.

A chemical skin peel is a treatment that uses a chemical solution on your face that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The “new” skin underneath is smoother and appears less wrinkled than before giving you an overall rejuvenated look. There are many different grades and strengths of peels, depending on the condition of your skin.

Other Effective Treatments are:

Laser treatments (aka lasabrasion or laser peel) have been around a long time and safely deal with a number of skin problems. This technique uses pulsating beams of light that removes tiny bits of skin layer by layer. It is a great solution for acne scars, wrinkles and other skin irregularities giving you a more even skin tone. There is also a Fotona laser, the Rolls Royce of laser machines that treat a variety of different problems such as skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and hair removal to name but a few.

Radio frequency (RF) treatments have been popularized by machines such as Endymed Pro™ which treats both the face and body. This technique is used to treat saggy skin by tightening it via heat and supposedly inducing natural collagen and elastin production. It is primarily used to treat the forehead, under eyes, cheeks, jawline, and neck, but can also be used on the body such as the thighs and buttocks. The heat creates shrink wrapping breaking up the fat and tightening the skin. It causes thermal damage (in a good way) to heat the skin to tone it and firm it to build collagen.

Microdermabrasion is another great treatment where I see clients having instant results.
