Lines, Wrinkles & Ageing
As we age, our bodies no longer produce as much collagen as they once did. This means that a greater amount of collagen is being lost than what is being replenished. This results in those tell-tale signs of ageing: lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and hands. However, these days, there are several proven treatments to deal with this issue.
Loose or sagging skin occurs when internal or external factors affect the key molecules that help keep the skin elastic, firm and hydrated. Unfortunately, skin that is no longer as firm as it once had been is also an inevitable part of the ageing process. But at About Faces Noosa, we offer a number of treatments to improve this concern.
Pigmentation & Sun Spots
Although pigmentation and dark spots in the skin are most commonly caused by sun exposure, they can also be caused by hormones, medication or skin injury. When the skin is stressed by such things, it reacts by increasing its amount of melanocytes (pigment producing cells). This results in pigmentation and dark spots.
Redness & Rosacea
Do you suffer from constantly flushed cheeks or from a nose that seems too red? Or perhaps your facial redness is even more pronounced and caused by the skin condition of Rosacea? As we age, such problems can often increase so click on the link below to see how we can help you to 'tone down the red'!
Broken blood vessels or spider veins on the nose and/or cheeks is a common complaint. The nose and cheeks are highly vascular areas and the skin is much finer here than on other parts of the body allowing the veins to show through. However, effective treatments are available to treat facial veins.
With acne prone skin, breakouts happen more easily and more often than for those without this skin type.

Red moles, or 'cherry angiomas', are common skin growths that can develop on most parts of the body. A collection of small blood vessels within the mole is what gives the angioma its red appearance. Some people are quite prone to developing such moles from about the age of 30 onwards.
There are many different options when it comes to hair removal. Waxing has been around for years and is one of the most popular methods for temporary hair removal while laser hair removal is an option for those who want a permanent approach to getting rid of their body hair.
Scarring is a natural part of the healing process following injury. Scar tissue is made of the same protein as skin, but its collagen is laid out in a different fibre formation which makes it far less elastic and therefore more noticeable. At About Faces Noosa, we have highly effective treatments available to improve the colour and appearance of your scars.
Skin tags are unsightly, benign growths usually less than 2mm in size, although they can also be larger. They are made of collagen (a type of protein) and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Skin tags are usually found in folds of the skin such as in the armpits, groin, thighs, eyelids, neck or under the breasts.
Unsightly veins occur in the leg when tiny, one-way valves inside the veins have weakened. In healthy veins, these valves push the blood in one direction - towards the heart - but where the valves have weakened, some of the blood flows backwards to accumulate in the vein.
Following childbirth, women often suffer from vaginal laxity or mild urinary incontinence. For others, the issue may be painful intercourse or that they simply don't like the appearance of their genitals. Whatever the issue 'down there' may be, we can offer an effective treatment called ThermiVa.
