The best treatments to make your skin & face look more youthfulFace 18 Oct 2016
Unless you’re very lucky, you are likely to have one aspect of your facial appearance that bothers you, particularly as your face begins to age. Although gravity affects everyone, the way age makes its mark on our skin depends on our individual lifestyles, body shapes and genetics. So, although your friend might be wondering how you’ve managed to escape jowls, you might be enviously admiring your friend’s wrinkle-free forehead!
Smokers tend to get smokers lines and sun-worshippers find that their facial wrinkles and lines are deeper than everyone else’s. As we can’t predict how we’ll age, it’s difficult to know which cosmetic treatment is going to provide us with the most effective and appropriate treatment. That’s why we offer a free consultation with our expert cosmetic practitioner to discuss which signs of ageing you’d most like to treat and the sort of solutions we can offer. Let’s have a look at three of our most popular rejuvenation treatments which can help your face and skin look more youthful.
Wrinkle reduction is administered in the form of an anti wrinkle injection. It will relax your facial muscles enough to stop them from contracting and creating the lines on your face that you’d like to soften. Only a small dose has ever given out at one time to ensure that the results of Wrinkle reduction treatment from our Hampstead clinic are natural looking.
You’ll simply look younger, less tired and more vibrant as opposed to having a frozen expression. The lightness of touch employed by our skilled practitioner, together with her experience allows her to remove problem lines, but not lose your ability to express yourself accurately.
Wrinkle reduction works best on lines that occur on the upper half of the face, so the injection will be administered strategically to reduce forehead lines from between the eyebrows, frown lines or crows feet. You’ll notice that the lines are reduced after just 2 to 3 days, but the effects of the treatment will be even more noticeable after 10 to 12 days. Once the effects of theWrinkle reduction begin to wear off, after 3 to 4 months, you’ll be able to order the top-up, in order to not have to return to your previously lined face.
Facial fillers are another popular anti-wrinkle treatment we offer at our Hampstead practice and they are administered as an injection. However they offer different benefits. Rather than preventing muscles from contracting, they plump up skin that has lost volume over time and smooth over deep wrinkles in this way.
In addition to getting rid of crows feet, marionette lines, and nasolabial lines, they will also fill in areas of your face that appear sunken, such as the hollows under the eyes, or sunken cheeks. The filler injection consists of hyaluronic acid which acts as a sponge to soak up water and fill out the skin from beneath. The effects last for six months and side-effects are very rare. Bruising or swelling will soon settle down.
Anti ageing peels in Hampstead
Skin peels are not injected. Instead, they are applied by painting the solution on to the skin. The peel solution will cause your skin to harden over the next few days before it then peels off to reveal a new, younger layer of skin tissue underneath it. By causing your skin to peel in this way, the treatment will stimulate your body’s natural skin first aid kit to speed up cell regeneration and increase collagen production. The older skin which has had the peel solution applied to it is treated by your body as a wound, which must be replaced with younger skin cells. The result is fresh, wrinkle-free skin after about a week.
