Ageing can bring a lot of issues into your life, including the fact that your skin will begin to droop and wrinkle, or your body may begin to lose its curves and contours. Lots of people delay getting treatment, as they do not believe that they are old enough, or they are worried about having to have surgery. At our skin clinic in London, we treat people of all ages and have an array of non-surgical procedures for you to choose from.
Have you been looking for a way to improve your appearance without surgery?
When people age, they start to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Skin can become loose and wrinkled in several different areas of the face, and this can leave people looking much older than they are. Many people worry that the only option they have is surgery when it comes to improving their appearance, but at our skin clinic in London we offer several non-surgical treatments that are non-invasive and just as efficient.
Treatments, such as Ultherapy and fillers, are capable of getting rid of any unwanted wrinkles that you may have around your face and neck, and they can even smooth out your ageing lines. As you age, your body’s natural supply of collagen and hyaluronic acid becomes depleted, and your skin’s response is to become less firm and wrinkled, as it can no longer defy gravity the way that it used to. When you receive treatment, we can stimulate the production of new collagen from deep within your skin and replenish your body’s supply of hyaluronic acid. This makes the skin appear and feel more youthful, as it is hydrated and refreshed, leaving you with an even, smooth complexion that you can feel confident about.
How long do treatments take and how long will they last?
Here, at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have such a vast range of treatments that all have their own individual treatment times. Generally, you can expect your treatment to take between thirty and ninety minutes, but this is something that our professionals will discuss with you once your treatment plan has been created. At our skin clinic in London, we offer treatments that are completely non-invasive and non-surgical, so they often do not have a recovery time. This means that your treatment will not interfere with your day, and you can carry on as normal as soon as the treatment has been completed.
How long your treatment will last will depend on which treatment you are having. Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments are likely to need to be repeated at least once a year after your initial treatment, but this is something that our professionals will be able to discuss with you, as every person we see here at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic gets treated as an individual. Treatments, such as Coolsculpting, can sometimes only be required once. Once your body has responded to the treatment and taken on its new shape you are usually able to maintain this with healthy eating and regular exercise with no need for further treatment. Some people, however, will go on to have Coolsculpting treatment several times throughout their life, as once again it depends on your individual circumstances.
