Lots of people are left feeling unsatisfied when they look in the mirror, due to loose looking skin or deep wrinkles and lines. A non-surgical facelift in London could boost your confidence and leave you feeling radiant by getting rid of your wrinkles and tightening your skin, so you appear more refreshed and youthful-looking.
There are a variety of treatments now available that can improve the appearance of your skin and it is easy to book a consultation appointment and find out which treatments are most suitable to your individual situation. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we support our patients from the moment they walk into our clinic and throughout their entire treatment process. Our practitioners are on hand to answer any questions that you may have throughout your treatment and fully explain each and every part of it to you.
Are you self-conscious about wrinkles?
If you find yourself getting frustrated with anti-wrinkle creams and complex beauty routines, having a non-surgical facelift in London could be the answer you have been looking for. At your consultation appointment, your professional will discuss which treatments will benefit you and you will also be able to highlight any areas to us that you wish to improve.
With some treatments, you will be able to see visibly noticeable improvements straight away, whilst others can take more time to work their magic. Your facelift is more than likely to be made up of more than one type of treatment, as we may need to improve your skin in more than one area, in order to leave you feeling as rejuvenated as possible.
What treatments can be used to make up your facelift?
A non-surgical facelift in London is normally made up of more than one treatment. It usually includes dermal fillers, botulinum toxin, Ultherapy and Thermage treatments, in order to make sure you get the most out of your facelift. You will not necessarily have every single type of treatment, but it is rare to only require one to achieve optimum results.
Botulinum toxin is administered through injection and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is a purified protein and works as a muscle relaxant, capable of smoothing out unwanted lines around your eyes and on your forehead or your neck. It normally takes five to seven days for you to be able to notice visible changes, but it restores your youth in a completely natural-looking way, as long as it is administered professionally within our clinic, The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.
Dermal fillers are similar to botulinum toxin in that they work hard to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, but they work completely differently. As your body ages, its natural supply of hyaluronic acid decreases, and this is what causes the skin to appear older, wrinkled and loose. Dermal fillers replace this acid, making the skin appear more youthful once again. To maintain your new look you will be expected to have appointments every six to nine months.
Ultherapy can help to stimulate your body into producing new collagen. This is carried out via ultrasound energy delivered deep into the dermis which helps to tighten your skin and keep it both firm and youthful-looking. This can target a majority of areas including your jawline, neck, chin, brow and general facial areas. It strengthens your skin from deep within and you will be aware of an initial lift when you first have treatment, but the real results will start to become more noticeable between three and six months after your initial treatment.
