Skin Ageing Treatment

Personalised Skincare to Treat & Prevent Skin Ageing

Skin ageing is complex but treating it doesn’t have to be with the right anti-wrinkle cream. Whether you’re looking to soften wrinkles, reduce fine lines, fade sun spots or restore radiance to sun damaged skin, our anti-ageing cream or gel custom skincare treatment can help! We can create a personalised skin ageing treatment using science-backed active ingredients to boost and refresh your skin.

Understanding Skin Ageing

This is a natural process the main causes of which are due to intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic skin ageing is a fact of life and the main driver is our genetic makeup. It results in a gradual loss of skin elasticity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Extrinsic ageing, on the other hand, is driven by environmental factors and lifestyle. Thes include sun exposure, smoking, poor diet and stress. All of these speed up skin ageing to cause lines and wrinkles, volume loss, skin sagging and pigmentation.

Why Personalisation Matters

Whilst skin ageing is a fact of life, there’s a lot you can do to minimise signs of ageing and prevent them. Our personalised approach to anti-ageing treatments centres on each patient’s individual needs. Your doctor will assess your skin and medical history in detail to understand the underlying causes and severity of your skin ageing. They will then design a treatment using the ingredients that will be most effective for your specific concerns and goals.

Personalised Prescription Strength Anti-Ageing Treatment

We provide personalised anti-ageing skincare (gel or cream) treatments through our online clinic. Your doctor will design your bespoke treatment based on your skin condition, medical history and goals. They will also take into account your wishes or preferences as much as possible when designing your skin ageing treatment. We offer two types of anti-ageing treatment protocols – AGN and AGN+. Both of these are bespoke skin ageing treatment programs but have some differences:

  • AGN: This is our standard treatment which targets mild to moderate skin ageing signs. It is also the treatment we use for maintenance and prevention once your skin clears up. AGN comes as a single product which you use at night as directed by your doctor.
  • AGN+: This is our advanced anti-ageing treatment for severe lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. AGN+ is for use for a maximum of 6 months. Afterwards you would continue with AGN for maintenance and general skin improvement. This treatment contains two products (a morning and night treatment).

Ingredients in Our Anti-Ageing Skin Treatments

We create a completely personalised skin ageing treatment for each of our patients. Our doctors select ingredients that will best serve your unique skin concerns, goals and wishes. This is a dynamic treatment so components of your anti-ageing cream or gel may change at the end of each 3 month treatment. This is based on how your skin responds. These are some of the active and prescription ingredients we may use in your topical treatment for skin ageing treatment:

  • Tretinoin: this is a prescription only medication that we may use (either alone or with other actives) in your cream or gel skin ageing treatment. It works by increasing skin cell turnover, which helps treat lines and wrinkles, smooth texture and fade hyperpigmentation. Tretinoin is up to 20x more powerful than retinol which is why it requires use under careful monitoring in suitable patients.
  • Azelaic Acid: has both anti-inflammatory and keratolytic properties to help soften and brighten skin.
  • Niacinamide: reduces inflammation, shrinks pores, evens out skin tone and boosts the skin barrier.
  • Hydrocortisone: is a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation, redness and soothes irritated skin.
  • Arbutin: this is a natural skin-brightening agent that suppresses excess melanin production especially in lighter skin tones.
  • Hydroquinone: also inhibits melanin production. We may use this prescription only medicine for limited periods in some of our treatments for suitable patients with severe hyperpigmentation.

Please note that prescription only medications are only used if we deem them safe, appropriate and acceptable for the patient.

Regain Confidence with Personalised Anti Wrinkle Cream & Gel Treatments

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to anti-ageing skincare because everyone’s skin is unique and responds differently. We also believe that you should be in full control of your skincare journey. This is why we don’t provide gimmicky subscriptions or generic anti-ageing cream treatments. We tailor your bespoke anti-wrinkle cream or gel treatment according to your individual needs which you discuss with your doctor. This ensures that we target your specific skin concerns whether it be hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, texture, pores, sagging or all of the above. We use active and prescription ingredients (where appropriate) for our skin ageing treatments to help give smoother, brighter and healthier skin. Whether you require our once daily AGN or twice-daily AGN+, your doctor will ensure that your treatment is always centred on your skin condition, health, goals and wishes.

Frequently asked questions

No it is not. We are really passionate about putting you in control of your treatment. Everyone responds differently and we may adjust your treatment formula after completing each course based on how your skin responds. That's why we don't think subscriptions make sense for a personalised journey. We leave it up to you to let us know when you need a refill and we make it very easy to order these.

We encourage all our patients to express any preferences they have in terms of treatment during the consultation. Wherever possible we will respect and accommodate these as long as we feel it is medically safe and beneficial to do so. Ultimately our aim is to provide you with the best solution for your concern and we'll design your treatment to achieve that.

This depends on how frequently you use it and how much you use. In general if used as instructed then the treatment should last 3 months for use on the face and neck. Please note that compounded treatments always have an expiry date of 3 months.

Prolonged sun exposure without proper protection leads to what’s known as photoaging. This can present as freckles, age spots, spider veins, rough and leathery skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and in more severe cases, skin cancer. Sun damaged skin can be addressed through a combination of professional treatments and high-quality skincare products.

Remember, the key to slowing down skin ageing is prevention. Regular use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and integrating potent anti-ageing ingredients into your skincare routine can go a long way in preserving your skin’s youthfulness and vitality.

We treat all the main features of skin-ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (brown marks or sun spots), lax skin and more visible pores. The ingredients we use in your custom treatment will be based on your specific concerns and needs.

Results can vary from person to person, and also depend on the product used. As a general rule, skin takes 6-8 weeks to turnover which means some people may start to see noticeable results after that. You will need to use your products consistently to get the most out of them and see the best results.

Yes, the treatments we offer can also address other skin concerns, such as acne, scars and Melasma. Your doctor will work with you to address your skin's specific needs and goals.

We recommend holding off treatment if you currently are or planning to be pregnant or breastfeeding in the immediate future. This is because some ingredients are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Regular use of potent anti-ageing ingredients such as retinoids, antioxidants, and AHAs can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Personalised treatments can further enhance these results.

Some ingredients such as exfoliating acids, Tretinoin and hydroquinone, can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Therefore, we highly recommend daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen as part of your skincare routine.

We can only offer treatments after a consultation with a doctor as they may use prescription medicines in the formula if they feel it is appropriate for you. This ensures that the treatment is safe for you to use and that it meets your treatment goals. Your doctor will also be able to answer any questions you have and provide you with a personalised treatment plan so you get the most out of your treatment and avoid irritation or side-effects.

Yes. We offer either online consultation forms or video appointments. Whatever option you choose, you will have the same doctor dedicated to you throughout your treatment and get a personalised experience.

You will have direct access to your doctor by email so you can ask questions, get advice and let them know if you have any problems.

No, you just need to reach out to your doctor by email and they will arrange your follow up. This maybe by email or a virtual video follow up depending on the problem.

Absolutely not. We never charge for any follow up or aftercare. You can contact your doctor at any time for advice, updates and any issues.

Nope! All our prices are as listed on the website. The fees also include delivery.

Yes! We only offer treatments that work safely and effectively on everybody. Our doctors are experienced in treating all skin types and tones.

While our treatments are suitable for most skin types, our doctors will recommend the best products and protocol to follow to avoid skin irritation especially if you have sensitive skin.

These will depend on the composition of your treatment and will be explained in more detail by your doctor. For example if a treatment contains Tretinoin and/or Hydroquinone these can cause some initial skin irritation including redness and peeling. This is usually temporary and subsides as your skin adjusts to the product. You may also experience purging. Always use sun protection especially while using Tretinoin and/or Hydroquinone, as they can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and lead to rebound hyperpigmentation. For more info visit the individual ingredient pages.

We have different options in terms of the cream and use the one we feel is best for the patient's skin and the active ingredients we're using. Below are the ingredients for the main bases we use.

Light hydrating base: Purified water, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, isohexadecane, isododeccane, stearyl behenate, cetyl alcohol, polyacrylate-13, polysorbate 60, PEG-75 stearate, polyisobutene, c13-c15 alkane, polyurethane-39, tocopheryl acetate, ascorbic acid, sodium bisulfite, benzoic acid (0.1%), sorbic acid (0.1%), polysorbate 20.

Emolliating (sensitive/dry skin) base: Aqua, Hydrogenated Sunflower Seed Oil Polyglyceryl-3 Esters, Hydrogenated Sunflower Seed Oil Glyceryl Esters, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Propanediol, Undecane, Tridecane, HEA/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Steareth-20 Methacrylate Copolymer, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Polysorbate 80, Decyl Glucoside, Glycerin, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-8, Propanediol, Rutin & Hydroxycinnamic Acid {from Cleome gynandra leaf extract}, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Bisabolol, Edetate Disodium Dihydrate, Simethicone, Hyaluronic Acid Sodium Salt, Persea Gratissima Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Flower Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia Herb Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil, Rosemarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride.

Compounded treatments like the ones we use are unlicensed medications because they are custom-made for each patient based on a specific formulation tailored to their unique needs. Unlike licensed medications, which are approved by regulatory bodies for general use, compounded treatments are created by pharmacists to meet the specific requirements of an individual patient as prescribed by their doctor. While they do not undergo the same approval process as licensed medications, they offer a personalised approach that can address specific concerns where a licensed treatment doesn't exist effectively under professional supervision.
