With this ageing revolution comes a new breed of consumer, says appearance medicine practitioner Dr Catherine Stone. The field of nonsurgical treatments is also changing, with clients now looking to ‘age gracefully’ rather than dramatically alter their appearance. “A large number of our clients are ‘positive agers’ who want to enhance their natural beauty while still looking like themselves – all without anyone noticing.” New technology has also paved the way for skin rejuvenation facials, which utilise laser to reverse environmental skin damage. “Utilising the body’s natural regeneration process through laser skin resurfacing treatments is a great way to improve skin confidence,” adds Glucina. A course of laser treatments can help stimulate the growth of new collagen from the inside out, eliminating pigmentation and redness, which can make you appear older than you are.
