We explore some of the reasons why an anti-aging facial is becoming an increasing trend over surgical procedures. With attitudes changing to a more natural approach, skin therapies technology experiencing a boom in development and many more factors, now is the time to see what all the fuss is about.
What is an anti-aging facial?
An anti-aging facial is a treatment often carried out by a trained and qualified practitioner in a relaxing environment. Many of the latest treatments involve the use of natural and organic skin care products, which are consistently being chosen by Australia’s ladies over traditional products.
The clue is in the name with anti-aging treatments and therapies. They are designed to penetrate the skin layers and reduce some of the typical signs of aging, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Sagging brow
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Deep wrinkles
- Open pores
- Dull complexion
- Loss of definition
- Excess fat
- Sun damage/pigmentation
- And more.
How does skin age?
As we get older, our skin begins to lose elasticity and the collagen layers reduce too, over time. Every woman is different when it comes to aging skin and this can depend on many things, such as how much you’ve looked after it, hereditary conditions, the climate or whether you’ve been susceptible to skin problems or sensitivity.
Anti-aging facial treatments work in different ways to address some of these issues and the subject can range from the application of topical creams and massages to the latest in light therapy and collagen regeneration and much in between. Let’s look at a few of the latest innovations for anti-aging without surgical intervention.
Echo Oxygen Facials
Oxygen anti-aging facials have been popular for a few years now. With high levels of dust, dirt and pollution in the world’s cities, many modern women are looking at oxygen facial therapy to bring back a certain glow.
Oxygen facials use pure oxygen and gentle skin care products to revitalise tired skin, resulting in a naturally-radiant glow. Using revolutionary formulas and technology, the skin is carefully prepared to gently receive 180 million particles per second of pure oxygen and essential anti-ageing nutrients.
HIFU Facial Rejuvenation Therapy
HIFU is one of the most recent advanced technologies to appear on the anti-aging scene. It is currently one of the most popular among the celebrities and A-listers, with Australia’s very own Kerry Armstrong publicly endorsing it. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound and as the name suggests, uses ultrasound energy to deliver natural rejuvenation therapy deep within the tissues.
HIFU therapy works to stimulate the collagen beneath the skin layers and this promotes regenerative growth, which then builds beneath the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermalux LED Light Therapy
Dermalux LED light therapy is a popular anti-aging treatment for women of all ages and also helps to sooth a range of skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne.

Do anti-aging facials give the same results as surgery?
The latest anti-aging facial technologies won’t offer the dramatic results you’ll achieve with a surgical facelift or injectables. But they don’t have the price tag either and provide a much more natural approach to skin aging.
Often, natural therapies tighten the skin naturally and building natural regrowth from within can mean that these types of anti-aging therapies last longer than invasive treatments. Most women notice a difference after a short course of light therapy, for example and some experience dramatic changes in a short space of time. Many more celebrities and busy modern women are turning away from invasive anti-aging procedures and lasers and are looking for a gentler, more natural way of looking after their skin.
