As we age, our skin ages with us and, more often than not, unwanted wrinkles will appear. People develop unwanted lines on several areas of their face, but the chin is a common area that people often feel self-conscious about, as with age it can sometimes droop or sag, making you look older. Fortunately, there is a range of treatments available that are capable of making your skin appear more youthful.
Getting a non-surgical facelift in London, at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, will leave you feeling refreshed and make your skin appear tighter, firmer and younger. We have several different treatments that we can use during a facelift, so it is important to discuss these with your professional at your consultation appointment. We will make sure that you get the right treatments, which target the right areas so that when you leave the clinic you should be feeling confident again.
What treatments are available?
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have many treatments available from Botox and dermal fillers to Ultherapy. If you want to find out more about any of our treatments it is easy to book a consultation appointment where all of your questions will be answered. Having a non-surgical facelift in London can sometimes consist of having more than one type of treatment too.
You can resolve all sorts of issues such as unwanted wrinkles and lines around your mouth, forehead and several other areas. Sometimes it may be your chin that is bothering you, as it has started to droop, or you might feel self-conscious about your lips becoming thinner.
Dermal fillers are used to improve the appearance of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. They give you a completely natural-looking appearance and work straight away, so you will be able to see visible results for yourself by the time that you leave us. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid that is found in your skin will decrease, and this is what causes your skin to appear less firm and wrinkled. Dermal fillers work by replacing the hyaluronic acid, allowing your skin to appear more youthful once again. How often you need to have an appointment, to have additional treatment to maintain your look, will depend on your individual circumstances, but most people return to our clinic between six and nine months after their first appointment.
A way of strengthening your skin from deep within, Ultherapy is a commonly used treatment that will make up part of your non-surgical facelift in London, that uses ultrasound to improve the appearance of your skin in less than one hour. This treatment requires no downtime whatsoever. The process works through the stimulation of the production of new collagen, which is what helps to give the skin its firmness for a more youthful-looking appearance. It can help with the saggy skin that often develops around the face, jawline, neck and chin, and can even help to improve fine lines and wrinkles on the decolletage (chest area).
Administered via injection, this popular treatment is often used to get rid of unwanted wrinkles around the forehead, crows feet around the eyes, face and neck. Botox injections are unregulated in the UK so it is vitally important that you visit us at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic so we can administer it safely and professionally. It normally takes a little longer to see visible results from Botox than it does other treatments, but you only need to have one appointment every three to four months, for a year, to obtain longer-lasting results.
