Soft tissue fillers, muscle relaxers (Botox) and other skin therapies can be tremendously effective treating facial ageing signs. They can alone or together with facelift surgery help to correct wrinkles, skin pigment disorders, sun-damage, dynamic lines from overactive muscles, loss of volume (cheeks, temples, forehead, chin, lips), loss of elasticity and the pull of gravity that cause skin to sag.
Surgical options require downtime during the post-surgical recovery period. The soft tissue fillers only require the time it takes to have them injected and sometimes a couple of days to recover from light swelling or minor bruises.
A facelift is uniquely able to correct moderate to severe visible signs of ageing throughout the entire face and neck. However, non-surgical approaches to facial rejuvenation or beautification, can target isolated areas of the face or with a total face approach all facial areas. Compared with surgical facelifts non-surgical treatments have different effects. Both techniques are helpful to reduce signs of ageing and in fact a combination of techniques of non-surgical and surgical treatments are often used to get optimum results. For every client the situation is different and therefore it takes an expert opinion to choose together with the client what is the best option to do.
Wrinkle & skin treatments and facial shaping with dermal fillers
Soft dermal fillers help to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, can help to sculpt face or parts of the face by volumizing and sculpting up the skin, fat compartments and bone. They contain natural, non- permanent products like hyaluronic acid. These fillers are safe and with an expert approach can give extremely natural and youthful effects.
Dermal stimulants can stimulate the skin to produce new collagen. The skin gradually begins to produce new collagen to give a smoother and firmer skin without volumizing effect. The dermal stimulants contain non-cross linked hyaluronic acid or calciumhydroxy-apatite.
Muscle relaxants have been widely used over 15 years in cosmetic medicine. These products contain neurotoxine Botulinium (Botox) that can block the nerve impulses to the muscle and therefore remove wrinkles that are still at the formation stage. They can truly prevent wrinkle formation. These effects last from 3 to 6 months.
This technique involves fat harvested from a part of the body with fat deposits, being purified and injected into different areas that need enhancing. Some of the injected fat may be integrated into the body resulting in an immediate volumizing effect.
Chemical peels can be used to erase fine and moderate lines, discolouration of the skin, light scars and freckles and sun-damaged skin. The treatment needed has to be chosen with special care. We can provide light, moderate and deep chemical peels. They can be used alone or in combination with other treatments.
The products contain active antioxidants, retinoids, hydrochinon or corticosteroids. They can be used as part of a daily skincare routine. Sometimes topical applications can be combined with oral prescription medication.
