4 Anti-Ageing Facial Treatments That Really Work

Lisa Franklin’s Clinic in London offers a variety of anti-ageing treatments that stand out for their innovative approaches to skin rejuvenation and maintenance. Here are four notable treatments that have garnered attention for their effectiveness:

CACI Facial Treatments

Utilising the latest in microcurrent technology, CACI facials are non-invasive treatments aimed at improving the tone and appearance of the skin. These facials stimulate facial muscles, promoting a more sculpted appearance and reducing sagging and wrinkles through techniques such as LED light therapy, ultrasonic peeling, and microdermabrasion​​​​.

Endosphères Therapy Facial

EVA – Endo Ablative Vibration represents a cutting-edge approach to facial rejuvenation, incorporating three advanced methods within its protocol to comprehensively address skin and muscle regeneration. The Mas handpiece employs Sensorised Ablative Microvibration to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface and relax wrinkles, while the Face handpiece enhances microcirculation and tissue oxygenation while eliminating toxins, ultimately improving cellular toning. Additionally, the Vev handpiece utilises Vibro-electro Vehiculation to activate cellular metabolism and deeply nourish the tissue. Endospheres effectively counters the detrimental effects of modern lifestyles and environmental factors, such as lack of sleep and pollution, restoring a vibrant complexion. By stimulating microcirculation and oxygenation, it diminishes skin discolouration, purifies the skin and promotes the removal of accumulated toxins unveiling a brighter and more radiant appearance. Endospheres tackles muscle over-contraction, promoting relaxation and toning of facial muscles to achieve a younger-looking visage. Compressive Microvibration specifically targets hyper-contracted muscles, reducing the appearance of sagging eyelids, wrinkles, and crow’s feet for firmer, rejuvenated skin. The treatment’s ability to improve blood circulation and stimulate collagen and elastin production results in a plumper more voluminous face with diminished signs of muscle hyper-contraction ultimately contributing to a youthful and revitalised complexion.

Oxygen Oxyjet Facial

Designed to breathe life back into dull and lacklustre skin, this treatment uses medical-grade oxygen to repair, energise, and lift the skin, offering a completely restorative experience​​. Oxygen plays a vital role in skin health by promoting cellular repair, revitalising tired cell and boosting collagen production which ultimately contributes to a more youthful and radiant complexion. When the skin is exposed to medical-grade oxygen in treatments like this one it enhances the skin’s ability to absorb nutrients and moisture leading to improved hydration and elasticity. Oxygen facials help to detoxify the skin by flushing out impurities and pollutants resulting in a clearer and more even-toned complexion. The revitalising effects of oxygen can also reduce inflammation, soothe irritation and accelerate the healing process making it particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive or problematic skin. Overall, this treatment offers a comprehensive solution to rejuvenate and uplift the skin leaving it looking and feeling refreshed, vibrant, and renewed.

Byonik Pulse Triggered Laser Treatment

This cutting-edge treatment provides deep moisturisation and volume, using BYONIK’s award-winning technology for skin rejuvenation. It’s particularly noted for its immediate vitality and lifting effects, addressing skin hydration and firmness on a profound level​​. These treatments highlight Lisa Franklin’s commitment to combining high-performance technologies and clinically proven techniques to address ageing concerns. With a focus on non-invasive methods, these treatments offer a modern approach to skincare, emphasising results with minimal downtime. Each treatment is tailored to meet the individual’s skin needs, ensuring a personalised experience that seeks to achieve the best possible outcomes in skin rejuvenation and health.

SkinPen Microneedling treatment

SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics offers a revolutionary microneedling treatment that rejuvenates the skin and combats signs of aging effectively. This FDA-cleared device is trusted for its clinically proven results. The treatment targets lines and wrinkles, including acne scars resulting in smoother, more radiant, and younger-looking skin. SkinPen works by triggering the skin’s natural healing process through microneedles that create micro-channels in the skin’s surface. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to the formation of new tissue and improved skin quality. The treatment is convenient, requiring little to no downtime, and is designed to work without the use of chemicals or heat. With SkinPen you can achieve significant anti-aging benefits safely and effectively.


Morpheus8 is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment designed for both facial and body contouring, harnessing the power of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. Through the use of tiny needles that penetrate the skin at controlled depths, Morpheus8 triggers the body’s natural collagen and elastin production vital proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. Alongside microneedling the treatment delivers RF energy deep into the skin layers generating heat to stimulate collagen remodelling to enhance skin tightening. By combining these techniques Morpheus8 offers remarkable results in rejuvenating and tightening the skin providing a non-invasive solution for a more youthful appearance.

Understanding Ageing and Skin Changes

Understanding ageing and the changes it brings to our skin is crucial for developing effective skincare routines and managing expectations. As we age, our skin undergoes a variety of transformations due to factors both intrinsic (genetic and natural ageing processes) and extrinsic (environmental impacts such as sun exposure, pollution, and lifestyle choices). These changes include a decrease in collagen and elastin production, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and a loss of skin elasticity and firmness.

Skin can become drier as sebaceous gland activity decreases, making hydration a key focus for ageing skin care. The turnover rate of skin cells slows down, resulting in a duller complexion and the potential for increased pigmentation issues like age spots. Understanding these processes is essential for selecting the right skincare products and treatments that target ageing concerns, emphasising the importance of sun protection, hydration, and ingredients that support skin health, such as antioxidants, retinoids, and peptides, to mitigate the visible signs of ageing and maintain skin’s vitality.

Factors to Consider in Choosing an Anti-Ageing Facial Treatment

Choosing the right anti-ageing facial treatment involves considering various factors to address skin concerns effectively while promoting a more youthful appearance. 

The treatment should target the removal of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, more radiant skin and address sagging skin and uneven skin tone through methods that encourage skin rejuvenation and collagen production. Anti-ageing treatments range from chemical peels, which can minimise the appearance of age spots and acne scars, to anti-wrinkle resurfacing with microneedling and radiofrequency designed to reduce lines and wrinkles and improve the skin’s elasticity.

Skin Types

It’s essential to select a treatment that aligns with your skin type, as different skin types and ages will respond differently to treatments. For instance, treatments that boost collagen production, like micro-needling, can be effective for ageing skin showing signs of reduced natural collagen production. Meanwhile, for concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin, treatments that promote hydration and cell turnover, such as regular chemical peels or the use of antioxidants, may offer significant benefits.

Consider treatments that can address multiple concerns simultaneously for overall skin rejuvenation, such as facials that combine light therapy, peels, and moisturising components to improve blood circulation, reduce enlarged pores, and tackle other visible signs of ageing. The beauty industry offers a range of options, from pain-free treatments that stimulate new collagen and cell regeneration, like LED light therapy, to more intensive options like Morpheus8.

The best anti-ageing facials will offer a customised approach based on a thorough understanding of your unique skin issues and desired outcomes, whether you’re looking to minimise the appearance of fine lines or stretch marks, or simply seek to enhance your skin’s overall texture and health for a younger-looking complexion. Regular treatments may be necessary for lasting anti-ageing results as skin continues to age and respond to environmental stressors. 

Ultimately, the best treatment is one that considers your specific skin concerns, type, and the natural ageing process, tailored to offer the most natural and effective rejuvenation for a healthier more youthful appearance.

When should I start anti-ageing treatments?

Starting anti-ageing treatments can vary widely depending on individual skin concerns, genetics, and lifestyle factors, but a proactive approach is generally recommended. At Lisa Franklin we suggest beginning with preventative skincare routines in your 20s or early 30s, as part of Collagen banking as this is when the production of collagen starts to decline, leading to the gradual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Incorporating basic anti-ageing products, such as those with antioxidants, retinol, and sunscreen can help mitigate early signs of ageing and protect the skin from further damage.

By your late 20s to early 30s, considering more targeted treatments that address specific concerns like fine lines, uneven skin tone, or texture issues might be beneficial. Treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or even non-invasive laser therapies can be effective in boosting collagen production and skin rejuvenation contributing to a more youthful appearance.

As you move into your 40s and beyond, your skin may benefit from more intensive anti-ageing treatments, such as microneedling and radiofrequency to address deeper lines and volume loss and skin tightening to improve elasticity. The key is to assess your skin’s condition and goals with a skincare professional who can recommend the most appropriate treatments based on your skin type, concerns and age.

Ultimately, the right time to start anti-ageing treatments is a personal decision that depends on your skin’s specific needs and your aesthetic goals. Adopting a skincare routine early on that focuses on prevention and maintenance can lay a solid foundation for skin health, potentially delaying the need for more aggressive treatments later on.
