As you age there are several things that can affect the appearance of your skin. Hyaluronic acid and collagen play a big part in your skin’s youthfulness, and the skin on your face is particularly sensitive to ageing. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have a wide range of treatments available that can leave you and your face feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
If you would like to improve the condition of the skin on your face but are unsure about which treatments are most suitable for you, then it is recommended that you book a consultation appointment at our skin clinic in London as one of our professionals will be able to discover which treatments will be the most beneficial to you.
Stimulating your collagen from deep within
At our skin clinic in London, we have multiple treatments that have been specifically designed to help stimulate your existing collagen and promote the production of new collagen. Collagen is what helps keep your skin appearing firm and hydrated, smooth and youthful-looking.
As you age your body’s natural supply of collagen starts to run out and it is not able to produce new collagen in the same way as it did when you were younger. This can result in your skin appearing loose in some cases as it is no longer able to defy gravity in the same way.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we offer Ultherapy, which is micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation energy, to stimulate your collagen from deep within your skin. This treatment works around your face, neck and décolletage and you will be able to see results a few months after your initial treatment when your body has had time to produce more collagen.
People often have Ultherapy every year or so, but your practitioner will be able to inform you of how often you should be receiving treatment as is depends upon your individual circumstances.
Refresh your look by reducing wrinkles
There are a number of habits that people have adopted in an attempt to reduce the appearance of their wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle creams and morning routines are common, but people are often disappointed with the results. At our skin clinic in London, our treatments will reduce the appearance of your wrinkles and age lines from the moment that your treatment has finished in some cases.
Dermal fillers are a simple and straightforward way of reducing the signs of ageing. They are injected directly into the areas that you wish to improve and contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural acid that is found within your body. As you age your body’s supply of hyaluronic acid begins to diminish, and your skin begins to wrinkle in some places. Having an extra amount of this substance in into your skin tricks it into behaving as if it was more youthful again, making it appear smoother and firmer.
You can have dermal fillers injected into your brow, cheeks, lips, around your mouth and nose as well as into your tear troughs to reduce the appearance of dark circles around your eyes.
