Our skin produces less collagen and elastin as we get older, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. In addition, some people lose the glow and luminosity of the skin and may even get dark age spots or Pigmentation. So what is
the solution? Various minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments can considerably improve the skin and provide a more youthful appearance. Let us look at each complaint and consider the best options.
Lines and wrinkles :
Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, with more than 6 million Botox treatments administered each year. We use Botox to treat lines and wrinkles and excessive sweating. Not all Botox is the same; for safety and efficacy,
seek out only the best FDA approved Botox so you can be sure it delivers the results you are looking for.
Lack of volume or deep lines :
Dermal fillers have been used for decades to treat nasal labial folds and create volume in the cheeks, lips and chin. These days dermal filler is often used
to improve the contours of the nose and jawline and is now more often used by men. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid and similar substances: they "fill in" or plump areas that have lost volume and smoothness.
Fillers can be used in the lips to create an attractive and fashionable pout, sometimes used alongside Botox and other non-surgical procedures; fillers can form part of the lunchtime facelift, sometimes referred to as the Liquid Facelift.
Dull or sallow skin :
Skin boosters are micro-injections used to inject Hyaluronic Acid into the skin to make your skin more even and plumper. Much the same as dermal fillers but
with a lighter consistency, skin boosters smooth out fine lines, improving skin elasticity, achieving an overall glowy skin and a younger appearance. Results can last up to several months after the initial three treatments.
Skin discolouration :
Treating skin discolourations can be done by various treatments such as chemical peels, laser and various types of medical creams. However, many people opt for PRP.
Made famous by Hollywood celebrities like Kim Kardashian, "The vampire facial", also known as the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets, and then injecting them into your skin
via micro-needling or tiny injections. The plasma contains epidermal growth factors which help repair damaged cells and promote collagen.
PRP is used to treat post-acne scarring, Pigmentation and to give a younger, firmer appearance to the skin. In addition, PRP is often used in the treatment of hair loss.
Sagging skin :
A Thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This
has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads help produce collagen.
Collagen helps to keep our skin firm, voluminous and supple. Patients with a thread lift for stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin's tone and firmness. In other words, the thread lift provides ongoing and
progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Most people cannot feel their sutures once the skin has healed around them.
The most significant advantage of having a thread lift rather than a facelift for many patients is the significantly reduced recovery time associated with thread lifts. Recovery from a thread lift is comparatively easy. Thread lifts can
be performed under local rather than general anaesthesia, meaning that thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure.
