Goodbye Fine Lines & Wrinkles

As we age, our skin naturally ages and fine lines and wrinkles begin to make an appearance. This is primarily due to the gradual decrease in collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in diminished skin elasticity and hydration. The facial regions most commonly affected include the forehead, around the eyes (known as crow's feet), and the areas surrounding the mouth, alongside other noticeable spots like the neck and backs of the hands.

 

There are many other factors that contribute to the formation of wrinkles, such as exposure to UV rays, tobacco & alcohol use, and genetic predispositions. Fine lines and wrinkles can negatively impact self-esteem, as societal norms often associate them with ageing, influencing perceptions of beauty and people’s confidence. To counteract these effects, our aesthetic clinic offers wrinkle treatments  dermal fillers and skin boosters.

 

By replenishing lost volume, stimulating collagen synthesis, and enhancing skin hydration, these treatments help to rejuvenate your skin, addressing both self-esteem concerns and promoting skin health. For detailed information on each treatment and its processes, feel free to reach out to our friendly team today.

Facial Aesthetic Treatments

We use dermal fillers, skin boosters, polynucleotides and facial muscle relaxing treatments. 

Dermal fillers help when more volume under the skin is needed eg: in cheeks, noses, lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear trough and very deep lines. 

A skin booster is an injectable product that can improve the texture, hydration and elasticity to help 'feed' the skin.  Skin boosters target dryness, crepey skin and fine lines – making them a complement to wrinkle treatments.

Polynucleotides are powerful skin boosters. They stimulate the production of essential components like collagen and elastin.

It improves skin quality, making it  appealing to those looking for natural-looking enhancements without more invasive procedures. The polynucleotide chains can also: improve the extracellular matrix of skin cells, boosting hydration.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure that doesn't require surgery. They're injectable substances meant to add volume, smooth wrinkles, and improve facial contours. These fillers are often made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, or other materials that the body accepts. Dermal fillers are mostly used to address signs of ageing or asymmetry, and results usually appear within a week or two after the procedure.

Common areas for treatment include the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and under-eye hollows. People choose these treatments to reduce the signs of ageing and feel more confident. Although generally safe, there can be minor side effects like bruising, swelling, or mild discomfort at the injection site. Serious complications are rare. Recovery time is short, and most people can go back to their normal activities right away. After treatment, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for a brief period. 

Safety is our top priority, and we are committed to using only premium, high-quality products. Our team is extensively trained and fully qualified, making sure every procedure takes place in a clean and controlled environment. We also understand that individual preferences may change over time, which is why we offer the option to dissolve dermal fillers. 

Dissolving dermal fillers involves the use of specific enzymes or solutions to break down and gradually eliminate the previously injected filler substances. This treatment allows people to adjust the fillers they had done, or go back to their original appearance. Contact us today for more details or book your free consultation.

Skin Boosters & Polynucleotides

Skin boosters are non-surgical treatments designed to improve skin hydration, texture, and overall quality. Unlike dermal fillers, which focus on adding volume to specific areas, skin boosters work by injecting hyaluronic acid or other hydrating substances directly into the skin, stimulating collagen production and enhancing natural moisture levels. 

Results from skin boosters typically take 2 to 6 weeks to appear, offering a gradual and subtle improvement in skin appearance. Commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and hands, addressing concerns such as fine lines, dullness, and uneven texture. While the procedure is generally safe, potential risks include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. Post-treatment care involves avoiding excessive sun exposure and using gentle skincare products. 

 

We often combine skin boosters with other treatments to improve the results for our clients. To explore all your options, please contact us or book a free consultation where we take you on a tour and explain each treatment so you find it easier to decide which treatments suit you. .

Polynucleotides are not the same as skin boosters, although they both serve to improve the skin’s appearance and health through injectable treatments. The key differences are:

Mechanism of Action:

  • Polynucleotides: Work at the cellular level by stimulating fibroblast activity, promoting collagen production, enhancing hydration, and initiating tissue repair processes. They also have antioxidant properties and aid in wound healing.

  • Skin Boosters: Primarily work by attracting and retaining water in the skin, providing hydration and a mild plumping effect. They offer immediate lifting and hydrating effects but do not significantly promote long-term skin regeneration.

Results:

  • Polynucleotides: Offer long-term improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and overall health through bio-regenerative effects. They help reduce wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and improve skin tone, but take several weeks to show visible results.

  • Skin Boosters: Provide instant, but temporary, improvements in skin hydration and appearance, reducing fine lines and giving the skin a glow. The effects are short-term and primarily cosmetic.

Use Cases:

  • Polynucleotides: Suitable for comprehensive skin regeneration, addressing aging signs, scars, stretch marks, and improving skin health over the long term. They are effective for areas that cannot tolerate water retention, such as the under-eye area.

  • Skin Boosters: Ideal for immediate hydration and a refreshed look, useful for short-term enhancement before special events or as part of a regular skincare routine for maintaining hydration and reducing fine lines.

 

Summary:  While both polynucleotides and skin boosters improve skin health and appearance, polynucleotides are more focused on long-term bio-regenerative benefits, whereas skin boosters provide immediate, short-term hydration and plumping effects.

FAQs

What is the best age for skin boosters?

The ideal age for skin boosters varies, but they are generally suitable for individuals in their late 20s and beyond. As skin ages, it tends to lose moisture and elasticity, and skin boosters, often containing hyaluronic acid, can help address these concerns by providing hydration and improving skin texture. However, the appropriateness of skin boosters depends on individual skin needs and concerns, so consultation with your therapist is recommended to determine the best timing and approach for each person's unique skin conditions.

Do skin boosters help acne?

Skin boosters, particularly those with hyaluronic acid, may help improve the appearance of mild to moderate acne scars by hydrating and plumping the skin. However, they are not a primary treatment for severe or deeply pitted scars. For significant acne scarring, dermatological procedures like laser therapy or microneedling may be more effective. As always, speaking with your therapist is essential to determine the best approach for individual skin concerns.

How many times can you have dermal fillers?

The frequency of dermal filler treatments depends on individual preferences, aesthetic goals, and the specific filler used. Generally, most people opt for touch-up sessions every 6 to 18 months as the effects of fillers gradually wear off. However, the timeframe can vary based on factors such as your metabolism, the type of filler used, and the treated area. It's important to follow the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional who can assess your unique needs and advise on an appropriate schedule for dermal filler treatments. Overuse or frequent injections may not be recommended, as it's crucial to strike a balance between achieving desired results and maintaining natural-looking outcomes.

When should you avoid fillers or skin boosters?

You might want to avoid fillers or skin boosters if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, have a skin infection, or certain health issues. It's also a good idea to skip them if you've had severe allergic reactions or if you're on specific medications. Always check with a doctor to make sure it's safe for you.

What are polynucleotides?

You might want to avoid fillers or skin boosters if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, have a skin infection, or certain health issues. It's also a good idea to skip them if you've had severe allergic reactions or if you're on specific medications. Always check with a doctor to make sure it's safe for you.

How often should I have skin boosters?

The frequency of skin booster treatments varies based on factors such as the type of booster used, the current health of your skin, and your desired outcomes. Popular boosters like hyaluronic acid may involve an initial series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart, followed by maintenance sessions every 3 to 6 months. Consulting with a qualified aesthetic practitioner is crucial to assess your skin, discuss goals, and determine a suitable treatment plan.

When can I have Wrinkle Treatments?

The ideal age to start varies, but best when wrinkles start forming usually late 20s and beyond.

At what age should you get fillers?

The decision to get fillers depends on individual factors and aesthetic goals rather than a specific age. While some people consider fillers in their late 20s to early 30s as a preventive measure for ageing signs, others may choose them later. The choice is subjective and influenced by personal preferences and skin concerns. Consulting with a qualified aesthetics practitioner is essential to determine the most suitable timing for filler treatments based on individual skin conditions and goals. They can provide personalised advice on whether fillers are appropriate and, if so, recommend the right type and amount for optimal results.

Do dermal fillers wear off?

When dermal fillers wear off, the treated areas gradually return to their pretreatment state. Dermal fillers, often composed of substances like hyaluronic acid, are temporary and the body naturally breaks them down over time. The duration varies depending on the filler used. As the effects diminish, wrinkles or volume loss may reappear. Maintenance sessions are typically required to sustain the desired results. If someone decides not to continue with treatments, their appearance will gradually revert to its natural state, unaffected by the previous filler injections.

Where can I have wrinkle treatments?

It can be used to smooth the forehead lines, the frown and crows feet. Also bunny lines, downward mouth, dimpled chin, neck bands, lip flip, lipstick lines, sweaty underarms, gummy smile and masseter (grinding teeth)

Can I have wrinkle treatments after HIFU?

We ask clients to wait at least two weeks after other treatments. It's best to discuss with us about spacing out treatments.
