Fight Those Wrinkles!


Introducing NEW Slimming Green Coffee

"I have finally found a product that really works.  I started using Leptin Slimming Green Coffee 800 program for 6 weeks now and have already lost 5 kg and feeling fab..."

With so many signs of ageing, and so many products promising a million results, it’s easy to find yourself furrowing your brow in confusion (which doesn’t exactly help the cause!).

We go back to basics to discover the main causes of wrinkles and find out just how certain ingredients can help fight the ageing process.

What are the main causes of wrinkle formation?
There are three major causes of wrinkle formation:

1.) Cellular metabolism slows down, which causes skin to become thinner and lines to start appearing.

2.) The production of collagen decreases, and so the skin loses its support system which, in turn, causes wrinkles to get deeper.

3.) A degradation of elastin occurs, causing the skin to become less supple, and wrinkles to get wider.

Retinol, hyaluronic acid and biopeptides are a few of the big buzzwords on the anti-ageing scene. Can you please explain (in layman’s terms of course!) how they work to minimise wrinkles and fight ageing?

Retinol (the purest and most effective form of which is vitamin A) penetrates the skin to encourage cell renewal. In the epidermis (the top layer of skin) it stimulates and increases cell growth, while in the dermis (the second layer of skin) it increases collagen and elastin production, resulting in a firmer, smoother complexion.

Retinol also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin texture, tone and radiance, and minimises hyper pigmentation. Both the MD Formulations and Skinstitut ranges contain specially formulated retinol in the purest form of vitamin A.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin and works to enhance the ability of collagen and elastin to retain the moisture in your complexion. It binds with water, allowing skin to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, ensuring wrinkles are plumped and smooth, and your complexion instantly improved.

Peptides are chains of amino acids, which act as communication agents within the skin, transmitting messages from cell to cell. There are different types of peptides and, depending on their structure, they send different messages to the cells to prevent cell damage.

Peptides not only increases the production of hyaluronic acid and instructs cells to produce more collagen, but it also helps to restructure and direct the collagen to where it’s needed in the skin (usually the place where fine line and wrinkles have formed).

So what advice can you give to those who want to slow down the ageing process?

From the age of 25 the functions of the skin naturally start to slow down, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. However, many of us may notice accelerated skin ageing which is generally a result of environmental and lifestyle factors.

To minimise premature ageing, protection is key – recommends using a product which contains both an anti-oxidant and an SPF to protect from all the elements. When lines or wrinkles start to appear, opt for an anti-ageing routine that is specifically formulated to fight wrinkles where they form in the skin.



Note from Girls at Northmead Beauty Therapy: we know many of you are concerned with fine lines and wrinkles and we’re here to tell you that you that help is at hand so you don’t have to suffer the affects of ageing (well, not as much as you would unaided by product!).



AGE smart™
The intelligent investment in your future skin.

Rather than focus solely on the manifestations of skin aging such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity, etc. Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute researched how to impact the biochemical reactions that trigger changes in aging skin to stop them before they start.

The result is AGE Smart, the only system designed to help prevent the biological triggers that lead to skin aging while treating the visible signs of aging. Firmer, smoother, healthier skin is yours with AGE Smart.


Most products positioned as “anti-aging” products promise to minimize, and even erase, the manifestations of skin aging, such as wrinkles.  There are products that can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but no wrinkle is completely curable.  A better approach would be to treat skin aging at the source by addressing the actual biochemical reactions that trigger these changes in skin before they start.


Dermalogica is introducing AGE Smart, which works by impacting the main biochemical reactions that manifest the signs of skin aging: the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS – also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs). Learn more about the science behind AGE Smart.

Intensify the effectiveness of your prescribed AGE Smart home care regimen with a professional AGE Smart Treatment.  Available only from a Professional Skin Therapist, this treatment is perfect for clients of all ages who are looking to control the biochemical manifestations that contribute to skin aging while benefiting from the immediate results that can only be delivered through a professional skin treatment.

With 450 million baby boomers worldwide, it should come to no surprise that the skin care industry dedicates so much effort toward delivering products that will appeal to treating skin ageing.

However most products are positioned as "anti-ageing" products that promise to minimise, and even erase, the manifestations of skin ageing, such as wrinkles, rough texture, uneven pigmentation, dehydration and loss of elasticity.

But are consumers being misled?? Yes, despite what advertisers promise through "face lift in a box" that deliver the same results as professional surgery or injectables.  And when clients self-select "anti-ageing" products on the market, they may unknowingly contributing to more damage on the skin.  The fragrances, artificial colours and dyes prominent in lines targeted at the baby boomer generation increase the sensitivity and dehydration already apparent in aging skin.

Professional AGE smart™

We can help educate you on the authentic way to manage skin ageing.  The most successful way is through a two-phased approach; a customised AGE Smart product prescription and the AGE Smart professional skin treatment.

The AGE smart™ facial treatments are perfect for clients of all ages who are looking to control the biochemical manifestations that contribute to skin aging while benefiting from the immediate results that can only be delivered through a professional skin treatment.

20's - 30's

In general skin is smooth, bright and firm.  Depending on UV exposure and skin condition, there may be a few dehydration lines around the eyes and mouth (first signs of premature aging.  However skin cells are regenerating every 14-25 days, which helps skin looking healthy.


For skin beginning to show the signs of ageing or before a special event, the AGE Smart Skin Treatment 3 times over a 2 month period (3 treatments = 2 months) specifically to address any areas of photo damage that are beginning to surface.  Otherwise this series is ideal in the Autumn/Winter months.


30' - 40's 


Cell turnover begins to slow to around 30 plus days in this decade; which leads to dullness and a less skin tone.  Skin may be slightly drier and more dehydrated than it was in the 20s as oil production slows and barrier lipids reduce.  Wrinkles are more evident and prominent around the eyes and mouth (smile lines).  Elasticity and skin tone begin to diminish as collagen and elastin reduce by 1% per year



To defend the skin and reduce the signs of ageing 3 times over a 3 week period (3 treatments = 3 weeks).  After the series, the AGE Smart treatment can be maintained once monthly


40's - 50+

A combination of UV exposure and a declining amount of estrogen cause erosion to the skins underlying support structure, and also inhibits its ability to retain moisture.  Skin experiences a loss of elasticity and firmness, is thinner and often dehydrated.  Wrinkles are deeper and more prominent on the entire facial landscape, and skin may be sagging.  Hyperpigmentation is also prominent during these decades.


6 times over a 6 week period (6 treatments = 6 weeks).  After the series of treatments the treatment can be reduced to fortnightly and then gradually to once per month.

What Intimidate sunglasses do for you is:

  • reduce sunglare and UV rays to a category 3 standard (the highest category available for driving suitability - there is a category 4 in sunglass protection but those sunglasses can not be used when driving a car because the lens shade can distort colours when you are driving);

  • provide an extremely strong frame and lenses that can survive you sitting on them in the car or dropping things on them at home

  • provide a scratch-resistant lens so there are no annoying lines to look through when you are trying to drive

  • create a unique and stylish look that few people in the world are fortunate enough to have right now (these are a new sunglass design that are still made in the Prada factory but without the price tag)

  • give you comfort and style with no annoying bits that dig into your head
