Smile lines are caused by the loss of elasticity as we age, the cells lose their memory and slowly deteriorate, causing the muscles that we use everyday to leave their imprint of the expressions that we have made throughout our day to day lives. Pollution, smoking, alcohol, contraceptive pill, sun and day to day elements can also contribute to smile lines.
Fraxel Laser Treatments can be carried out in small areas or on the full face, neck and décolletage. These treatments help with the skins texture and appearance by stimulating deep in the dermis layer to re-activate healthy new collagen to come to the surface as the old dehydrated and sallow skin flakes off to reveal the healthy new skin. These treatments will have the best results if carried out 4 to 6 weeks apart and between 3 and 6 treatments may be needed for the best result.
Fraxel laser can be used on any part of the body even arms and hands – areas that often give away your age.
Muscle relaxants smooth the lines around the eyes, forehead and between the brow that are the result of frowning, squinting and facial movements. These lines can also be mistaken for tired or grumpy expressions. Muscle relaxants can create a lifting effect around the brow and eye area to open the eye and erase the lines that have appeared over time and can also be used to relax the platysma bands that run vertically in the neck, creating smoothness and giving the illusion of a longer neck. This is known as the Nefertiti Lift. Used in conjunction with Hyaluronic Hydrating treatments an even better result can be achieved.)
Dermal fillers can be used from lips, cheeks, chins and even for lifting indented scars. Cheeks and lips lose their fullness as we age and with a simple small practically pain free injection of dermal filler we can put back the fullness that has been lost over the years.
The décolletage is the first place that we forget to treat and the one place that others will notice ageing.
We have a range of treatments available for the décolletage. Most facial treatments are suitable for this area plus more… the décolletage is the 1st place that sun damage becomes noticeable, pigmentation, dehydration and the fine lines. Not only can we treat the décolletage with Dermabrasions, IPL, and Fraxel treatments we can also use Hyaluronic Hydrating Treatment.
Hyaluronic Acid can be superficially injected into any area which with age, pollution, daily sun exposure and general dehydration cause deterioration in our natural hydration. These superficial injections will re-hydrate, smooth and give back the youthful looking appearance that we lose from all these factors.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatments (PRP) are very effective at stimulating collagen production. This treatment use the patient’s own platelets, plasma and growth factors which are extracted from their blood to stimulate the collagen and elastin production. PRP will also give the skin the luster and plumpness it once had, reduce and even out pigmentation.
