Your skin is the body’s largest organ and it’s not something you can replace. That’s why you need to take excellent care of it. A general skincare routine is thoroughly recommended, but there are other ways in which you can take care of yourself, complement your already established regimen and improve the look of ageing skin.
Dull and Tired Skin
As we age, our skin gradually loses elasticity. In particular, sun damage can take the glow out of your complexion, leaving your skin looking dull and tired. Since our skin forms part of the ‘first impression’ we create, it is not unreasonable to want a glowing complexion, not only for the face but the body too.
There are three options to assist dull and tired skin. Click through to read more about the treatment options:
Acne & Pimples
Acne is one of the most common skin problems faced by people of all ages and can cause a loss of confidence. It is caused by a number of factors but usually occurs when pores become blocked with oil or dead skin cells, and then become secondarily infected with bacteria. Acne can appear on the face, back, chest, neck and shoulders. We generally use one of three different treatment options available at Samara Aesthetics to assist with the effects of acne and pimples.
Texture & Pores
The effects of ageing, as well as environmental factors, can cause us to have an uneven skin texture and enlarged pores, often resulting in us looking older than we really are. Read more about the available treatments that can help reduce the signs of skin ageing.
Melasma & Pigmentation
Brown age spots, patchy skin or melasma are unwanted skin pigmentation problems often caused by sun exposure or hormonal changes. These pigmentary changes can be difficult to treat, especially in ethnic or darker skin types. At Samara Aesthetics, we specialise in treating pigmentation in darker skin types, using the latest technology. Some of the treatments options are:
Redness / Rosacea / Broken Capillaries
Rosacea can manifest as a multitude of different symptoms affecting the skin on the face and body. It can vary from mild, broken capillaries or veins, to diffuse redness and flushing. Our patients tell us this can feel socially embarrassing and lead to a loss of self-confidence. With the use of appropriate technology, it is now a treatable condition. Options include:
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
We’re all aware of how time, environmental factors and sun damage can lead to fine lines and wrinkles on our skin. These can now be addressed without the need for injectables. With much faster recovery, fractionated lasers only treat specific areas of the skin, leaving the rest intact. Find out about the latest advances in treating wrinkles here:
LUMPS & BUMPS: Moles, Milia, Skin Tag, Xanthelasma, PPP
Lumps and bumps under and on the skin, including the eyelids and neck, though not usually painful, can be unsightly or uncomfortable. Laser removal of moles and other issues can now be performed using various procedures, including carbon dioxide ablation and radiofrequency surgery. The advantage of these technologies over traditional surgical excision is that there is less likelihood of scarring and recovery time is much improved. Read about these procedures to find out more:

Scarring is the result of an abnormal healing response associated with wounds to the skin. There are, of course, many different types of scars, for example, atrophic scars, such as ice pick scars, rolling scars or boxcar scars. Each type of scarring requires a specific and appropriate treatment as determined by our expert professionals. There are also, hypertrophic and red or pigmented scars that require a different approach.
For skin to be healthy and radiant, adequate hydration is essential. If skin is dehydrated, it can cause an overall dull appearance, as well as feeling dry and itchy and increase the incidence of fine lines and wrinkles. While adequate hydration and nutrition play a factor, the following simple procedures can keep your skin in soft, ‘glowing’ condition.
As we age and lose some elasticity from our skin due to lower collagen levels, we start to notice the appearance of skin laxity. This is usually most noticeable around the jawline. There are several non-surgical options to tighten sagging skin and reduce the appearance of the ‘jowls’ dropping. Find out more here:

Pigmentation, redness, as well as textural changes, can all form part of what are very common issues for people in Perth. These procedures are most commonly used to assist with sun damage:
