Located in Mosman on Sydney’s North Shore and only 20 minutes from the Sydney CBD, You Cosmetic Medicine is conveniently located for all your surgical and non-surgical anti-ageing treatments. Mara understands that you don't have to accept every wrinkle, age spot or sagging skin. There are many anti-ageing tips that really do work. Here are Mara’s top 5 tips. 1. It all starts with skin care prevention. Anti-ageing starts with good skin care prevention. Ideally, the earlier you start to care for your skin the better you will reduce signs of ageing when you are older. The good news is that skin care prevention can commence at any age. It all starts with a good skin care program tailored to your skin needs and don't forget an effective sunscreen. We recommend sunscreens containing zinc oxide as it is broad-spectrum and anti-inflammatory. 2. Use medically active skin care products. New skin care ingredients are constantly being introduced and it can be overwhelming to understand what ingredients are best for your skin. One of the most exciting and promising discoveries in the past few years is medically active Peptides. Peptides are the natural chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of protein in the skin. This natural ingredient is able to penetrate the top layers of the skin to produce more collagen to help generate more healthy and younger looking skin. You Cosmetic Medicine has a large range of medically active Peptides that can be tailored for your skin needs. 3. Practice good lifestyle choices. You lifestyle choices can have a positive impact on skin quality, says Mara. Stop smoking, drink plenty of fluids, eat a balanced diet and get a good night’s rest are some of the key elements of good lifestyle choices. There are no magic antioxidants to reverse the ageing process however vitamins C and E can help protect your skin and Zinc can speed up the natural repair processes. 4. Skin treatments The beauty magazines are full of skin treatments and it is often confusing to know which treatment is the right treatment for you. It all starts with what you want to achieve for your beauty and skin care needs. Medical grade peels are a great way to start skin rejuvenation and revitalize your look. Other treatments that may be recommended include laser, PRP, cosmetic injections, anti-wrinkle fillers, dermabrasion, vein treatments and medical needling to name a few. 5. Cosmetic surgery Mara recommends a natural, well-balanced lifestyle with the objective of looking refreshed - not different. If cosmetic surgery can help you achieve this goal then we support you. There is a wide range of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures available. We specialise in thread lifting to revitalise your contours and rebuild your natural collagen to create a natural lift. Other cosmetic surgery treatments include eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty), liposculpture, tummy tuck, brow tightening plus a wide range of other cosmetic surgery procedures. A consultation with Mara and one of our cosmetic Doctors is the first step to see if cosmetic surgery is for you.
