Anti wrinkle treatment London is an increasingly popular way to combat the signs of ageing. These treatments are non-invasive and effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
These injections are injected into specific muscles, which causes no discomfort. Depending on the area treated between two to six injections are required.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum Toxin Injections are a safe, effective treatment that can dramatically smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They are administered by a suitably qualified practitioner and work by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form.
The injections contain a purified protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected, Botulinum Toxin temporarily blocks signals from the nerves which tell the muscles to contract, relaxing them and smoothing out the skin to soften existing fixed lines and prevent static lines from becoming established.
The effects of Botulinum Toxin last around 3 months and should be followed up with a visit to the clinic after this time. It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, people with muscle spasticity or if they have had an allergic reaction to the drug previously.
Dermal fillers are a popular treatment to smooth away lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas of the face. They are injected with a fine needle or cannula and are made up of hyaluronic acid which is naturally occurring in the body.
The benefits of dermal fillers are that they are a minimally invasive procedure which produces fast results and can delay the need for more advanced procedures. They can be used to enhance lips, cheeks and nose to mouth lines.
They are a non-permanent cosmetic procedure that can be combined with anti wrinkle injections for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation. These injections smooth out the appearance of wrinkles, add volume and improve the elasticity of skin.
The treatment is usually carried out in 30-60 minutes and is not painful. Patients can expect minor redness, swelling and bruising but these should settle within a few days.
Microneedling is a safe and non-invasive treatment that stimulates your skin to repair itself. It reduces scars, fine lines and wrinkles as well as promoting the production of collagen and elastin.
A sterile tip generates measured and depth controlled microchannels to the skin that trigger your body’s wound-healing response. This results in increased blood flow and the release of growth factors, which start to build new tissue.
It also increases the production of collagen which promotes a firmer, smoother, more even complexion. You may need to undergo several treatments before seeing the results you want, but if you get it right you can see a significant improvement in your skin’s appearance.
Before the treatment starts, a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to your face, which will numb the area. The procedure will take around 30 minutes and is pain-free.
Pixel Laser is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce fine lines, pigmentation, scarring, enlarged pores, rough texture, and sagging skin. The procedure is a fractional laser resurfacing that stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved appearance for up to 6 months after a series of treatments.
The treatment is performed with a handpiece that emits a 2940nm Erbium YAG laser. It creates 49 (7×7) or 81 (9×9) pixel-sized ablation dots on the surface of the skin, which penetrate between 20 and 50 microns deep.
Each pixel can penetrate into the skin, triggering its own natural healing process that promotes skin rejuvenation below the surface. It’s ideal for treating sun damage, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin imperfections.
The procedure is generally pain-free and requires no topical anesthesia, although patients with severe sensitivity may benefit from topical numbing cream prior to the treatment. A stinging sensation may occur during the treatment and a sunburn-like feeling may persist afterward, which will eventually subside.
