Turn Back Time With Anti-Ageing Secrets

Ever wondered the secrets to anti-ageing your skin without having to go under the knife? We chat to Lesprit Medical Clinic's Margaret Lorimer about its latest 3d- skintech treatment that will give you a glow for months and just in time for the party season...

You are known as a pioneer in beauty treatments in the Middle East – your latest introduction is the 3D- Skintech Facial Rejuvenation treatment – what is it that customers are going to love most about the treatment?
This is a complete tri-dimensional, (hence the 3D) skin rejuvenation procedure that combines the effects of gentle light energy, mesotherapy, rotational diamond microdermabrasion, and radio frequency to produce skin restoration that is safe, comfortable, and effective. Ageing occurs on three levels: epidermal, dermal, and in the muscle tissue beneath so this treatment helps reduce dehydration lines, dull and lifeless complexion, expression wrinkles, deep wrinkles around the lips, frown lines, sagging jowls, and naso-labial folds. It also helps combat pigmentation and acne.

The treatment seems to combine all the best parts of facials and is done in under 45 minutes – is that its biggest drawcard?
Yes, time matters, but when someone who looks or feels old, it is often down to a combination of factors and ageing should be addressed. The main draw is that 3D- skintech is not only the new generation of “one fits all” anti-ageing therapy spectrum, but it can deliver preventative and curative solutions.

Clients can choose from one of three treatments anti-ageing, hyper-pigmentation and the clear skin facial – which is the most popular? 
They are all equally popular, as today those conditions are all intertwined into the ageing process of most individuals.

The first step of the treatment is microdermabrasion which seems to be a must-have first step in salons. Why is this?
As we get older, skin-cell turnover slows down and professional exfoliation can help speed up the normal shedding cycle. Microdermabrasion can rid the skin’s dull, outer layer as well as all of the flaws that reside there, like fine lines, darker spots and blemishes creating an ideal “blank canvas “ for everything else that is treated.

This dermabrasion technique is much more gentle than previous dermabrasion…
The 3D-skintech rotational diamond peel microdermabrasion function is designed to bring greater comfort and results than the older versions. It incorporates the latest diamond peel technology making it more comfortable and with its multi-rotational motion makes it faster. 

This is followed by RF using tri-polar technology – tell us about the benefits of RF?
3D-skintech radio frequency (RF) is using the latest tri-polar technology that gently heats beneath the skin breaking down old collagen, creating the tightening effect on the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Tri-polar radiofrequency technology means skin can be tightened with lower energy, so less discomfort than mono or bi-polar devices.  With radio frequency you can see visible results from your first treatments.

The results alone for RF seem to last for months after the treatment…
The focus fractional RF energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The concentration of collagen fibres and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits, tighten the skin layers creating smoother, healthier skin. 

As part of the treatment mesotherapy is included – tell us about the new innovation in this technique?
3D-skintech mesotherapy is the next generation of dermal rollers. It removes the need for needles when delivering active ingredients deep into the skin. 

What are the benefits of mesotherapy?
Mesothrapy breaks down the cell wall using a process called electrophoresis to enable ingredients to be effectively delivered into the cells where they are most needed.

The treatment finishes off with LED, which offers four varying colours to deliver different frequencies – what does this do?
During the treatment, a wrap-around light panel is positioned above the treated area. It works in conjunction with application of a Hyaluronic Acid moisturising mask. The physician or aesthetician selects the specific light energy required for your skin. The different colours give off different frequencies, which have varied effects on physical and psychological functions. 3D-skintech utilises four different spectrums of the light.

Tell us what each colour light specifically does to the skin…
Blue light improves acne prone skin. It penetrates into the superficial dermis and has a calming and regulating effect on the sebaceous gland. Green light decreases melanin production, reduces pigmentation and eliminates the redness associated with the use of the chemical peel and bleaching products. Yellow light is used for its healing, draining and detoxifying properties. It is absorbed by the body fluids in the lymph and blood circulatory systems and promotes wound healing. It increases lymphatic flow to evacuate more waste products and boosts cellular activity. Red light increases collagen production in the skin five fold by triggering repair mechanisms and stimulating fibroblast cells and cell growth. It increases circulation and speeds up the healing process by carrying more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Red spectrum light is absorbed by all skin layers, especially the dermis.

Do you find that people are turning to these types of treatments rather than plastic surgery?
Not everyone will opt for plastic surgery. The natural ageing process normally begins in our mid-20s, and the awareness of the risks that are associated with surgical procedures and countless available aesthetic options make more men and women demand aesthetic treatments that have fewer side effects and no downtime.  More often our patients want to have a safe, socially acceptable treatment. Exceeding those expectations, 3D-skintech is offering now, wholly non-invasive and truly effective treatments that naturally maximize ones’ beauty potential. Flawless skin is the best way to display and showcase health and beauty.
