Balgowlah: Where Ageing Skin Goes to Get Young Again

by | Aug 16, 2022

Is dull, ageing skin making you look older than you feel? It’s natural … winter is hard on adult skin. It’s difficult for it to keep plump and hydrated in the face of plummeting temperatures and indoor heat. If your skin is dry, deflated, chapped, or itchy, and looks as bad as it feels, you need help. Sanctuary in Balgowlah is the place to find it.

We invite you to make Austin Clinic’s medispa your destination to explore proven options for anti-ageing and facial rejuvenation.

Help for Collapsed Facial Contours

Study after study confirms the V2 Beauty Booster lives up to its name. The treatment nourishes the skin from the inside, helping to replenish lost hydration and nutrients. The unique injectable treatment protocol boosts the absorption of active ingredients including vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids. Hyaluronic acid plays a key role in the treatment too. Ultimately, the V2 Beauty Booster yields noticeable results in 10 to 14 days, plumping skin and giving it more youthful contours.

Our skin experts use a microscopic needling device to evenly distribute a precise amount of dermal filler to a specific depth. “Some patients are concerned when they hear the word injectable,” notes Dr Austin with sympathy. “They don’t need to worry, a numbing cream applied in advance can reduce or even block pain entirely.”

3-in-1 Treatment for Nagging, Sagging Skin Problems

Combination treatments continue to soar in popularity with social media influencers, celebrities, and skin professionals too, applauding the results of layering one treatment on top of another to enhance the results of each. The question is, which treatments are harmonious and which aren’t? The Sanctuary staff has the training and experience to know the answers and to create effective treatment protocols. They also have Vivace, a next-generation microneedling device that incorporates the benefits of photon light therapy and radiofrequency technology to tighten skin anywhere on the body.

“Patients often refer to their Vivace experience rather than their treatment,” reports Dr Austin. The use of blue and red light at the dermal level stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, increases moisture levels, and strengthens skin. Vivace skin microneedling is so comfortable and the results so immediate, that many patients refer to their appointments as their Vivace experience rather than their treatment.

UltraCel for Stubborn Fat on an Ageing Face

During the lockdown, a significant number of older people used the time to work on their health. They lost kilo after kilo, but many were still left with stubborn pockets of facial fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Short of a face lift, is there something they can do? Yes! At the Sanctuary, ULTRAcel Q+ is a 21st century treatment for the age-old problem of skin laxity.

ULTRAcel Q+ uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to dissolve fat. This more advanced approach generates friction between skin molecules. That friction generates heat, which in turn results in what manufacturer Cynosure calls “collagen denaturation and tissue destruction and cavitation”, and patients call an effective way to get rid of stubborn fat. Benefits of UltraCel are long-lasting. Many patients don’t need a touch up for six months.
