From our late teens, collagen and elastin production starts to slow down, further reducing at a rapid rate from age 30. Not only do fine lines and wrinkles develop, but facial volume, plumpness and firmness dramatically decreases due to loss of fat. As collagen is responsible for skin firmness and tone, whilst elastin provides the skin with elasticity, the reduction in their production can further create sagging and facial hollowing. Contributors to the reduction of facial volume include:
Dermal Fillers is an injectable treatment that works by plumping up the skin and make it firmer and smoothing out lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. It assists in adding volume to the areas of the face that has lost volume due to age or genetics. Results can last between six to twelve months. Some patients may experience temporary redness or bruising at the site of injection, but these symptoms are not painful and pass quickly.
Skin Hydration & Plumping Injections is used to plump and soften the look and feel of the skin by restoring the skins hydrobalance. It improves the elasticity and skin structure and treats crepey skin and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrators are an injectable treatment that involve tiny molecules of a gel-type substance placed underneath the skin. They work by pulling and holding moisture into the gel particle, which keeps the skin hydrated and boosts the overall skin quality. The result is softer, more hydrated fuller, firmer and more radiant looking skin. Skin Hydration & Plumping Injections can be used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Thread Lifting is the latest technology to help with facial retightening and collagen regeneration. This treatment helps to create desired facial contour and lift through the action of resorbable sutures (resorbable sutures are safe medical threads commonly used to hold, mould and seal epidermis / dermis skin tissue). The suture (thread) acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft skin tissue. The cones hold the suture (thread) in place. The components of the suture (thread) and cones are totally reabsorbed by the body and in time stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume, which diminishes with age. Thread Lift can be used on the neck, jaw line, cheeks, eyebrows and malar area .
Skin Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a special regenerating treatment that safely penetrates deep into the underlying layers of skin, aiding the repair and rejuvenation of troubled areas. Based on acupuncture, and using multiple needles that differ in size, Skin Needling kick starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skin. Skin Needling promotes the renewal of fresh collagen and elastin which provides skin hydration and can effectively smooth, plump up and even skin surface. Increasing treatments can provide long lasting plumpness and fullness to reduce the appearance of gaunt, hollow or ageing contours.
Plasma Pen is a revolutionary non-surgical, skin lifting and tightening treatment. Plasma Pen treatments contract and tighten the surface skin tissue, creating immediate lift and dramatic skin tightening. By firstly rejuvenating the outer layer of skin – known as the epidermis, the Plasma Pen treatment replaces old skin cells with beautiful new ones, then stimulating collagen and elastin production and strengthening, plumping and lifting the facial structure.
