Can you get younger-looking skin?
There’s plenty of anti-ageing products on the market that claim to give you noticeably younger-looking skin in just a week or a month. Yet, this seldom happens – the (false) promises don’t reduce wrinkles or the appearance of dark circles, among other claims. But there are a few options that do work. We spoke to top medical experts who share their personal picks.
A doctor who takes her own medicine
Cosmetic dermatologist, Dr Tess Mauricio, uses the treatment her clinic offers – the Time Machine Procedure. The process incorporates a combination of cosmetic procedures, including microneedling, growth factors and laser resurfacing. “This induces our own body’s natural healing process and creates a permanent reset of the ageing process. It can address all signs of skin ageing like wrinkles, saggy skin, eye bags, droopy eyelids and pores,” she says.
A smoothing effect
“As a plastic surgeon and someone who is in his early 50s, I do everything that I can to slow down the ageing process, but do so in a way that makes me still look natural,” says plastic surgeon, Dr Gregory Buford. Like Dr Mauricio, Dr Buford relies on something he offers: “ThermiSmooth has been a lifesaver for the loose skin and wrinkles around my eyes. I combine a series of treatments with microneedling and platelet-rich plasma to help tighten and firm this delicate tissue and keep me looking my very best.”
