There are a few ways to combat lines and wrinkles; treatments include plasma pen soft-surgery, Profilho, anti-wrinkle injections, microdermabrasion, skin tightening and natural skin rejuvenation.
The first tip to keep in mind is prevention first and foremost. Daily application of SPF50 in the sweltering heat will help protect the collagen in your skin. Ditch smoking as it can cause skin to stain and wrinkle.
Plasma Pen: The Plasma Pen can produce amazing results such as removing tags and warts but also reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The pen uses an electric current that creates a plasma arc, which encourages the skin to tighten and induces a healing response in the targeted area. The pen’s effects are notable when used around the eyes and neck. Not only can you treat single zones, the device can be used to combine multiple treatment areas together to create a ‘reduction grid’ – allowing for the removal of excess and loose skin.
Profhilo: Profilho is a skin booster that hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid injections beneath the skin. The solution restores skin quality and treats skin laxity. It boosts the production of collagen and elastin resulting in a more natural and tighter appearance. The treatment only lasts 30 minutes and restores facial firmness and decreases crepey skin.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections: Wrinkles can be caused by laughing, smiling and frowning. Anti-Wrinkle Injections reduce muscle activity and treat the signs of ageing. Carefully administered into the muscles causing unwanted creases in the skin, the solution is made of purified proteins that causes muscles to relax and atrophy to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is usually tailored to individual requirements to achieve subtle and specific results.
Microdermabrasion: This treatment exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells using aluminium oxide crystals and vacuum suction. The superficial layer of dead skin cells is removed to reveal new and healthy skin. When the dead skin layer is removed, the body registers this as an injury and stimulates the growth of new healthy skin cells.
Skin Tightening/Resurfacing: From the age of 25, collagen production starts to decline. Using the advanced Youlaser, treatment causes controlled trauma to restore skin quality, firmness and tightness. The technology resurfaces and rejuvenates skin to treat wrinkles, skin laxity, stretch marks and more. Youlase resurfaces the skin to catalyse the process of collagen stimulation to achieve an anti-ageing effect.
Natural Skin Rejuvenation: During this treatment, your own blood is taken by the doctor and spun using a centrifuge to harvest its growth factors. Spinning the blood, bubbles proteins to the surface. This solution is then injected into the targeted areas and plumps the skin, fills out fine lines and gives a more radiant complexion.
Unless you’ve discovered some portal through time, we’re all going to experience wrinkles at some point in our lives. It’s a natural part of ageing but we can treat it safely and efficiently. Anti-wrinkle treatment can leave our patients feeling better about their appearance, improving their mood as a result.
