Beauty and Confidence Restored Naturally

 

As a society we are becoming increasingly savvy about the ageing process, how our skin changes over the years, factors that contribute to accelerating the process. We are shown advertisements on the latest cream technologies that promise to take 10 years off our appearance. The result of this now, is a drive to start the quest of eternal youth and freshness long before the facial lines and wrinkles assume their positions! However I personally do not agree with giving dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections to younger individuals who don’t actually have any lines or wrinkles to start with. Younger people often make themselves look a lot older by over volumising their faces or completely freezing them.

 

‘Women in their twenties are looking for treatments before they start dermal fillers or muscle

relaxing injections to preserve the integrity of their skin – rather than reverse the damage later – prevention is better than cure!’

 

Justifying a Treatment Plan

 

Skin Needling or Derma Roller Treatments –

 

These procedures can be justified in all ages, it will help with open pores, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and help to prevent them from forming in the first place, procedures which help improve blood flow and create collagen are a popular concept.

 

Muscle Relaxing Injections –

 

A useful treatment when lines and creases start to show on the frown, forehead and crows feet. Many years ago I recall a very famous and world renowned Cosmetic Dermatologist giving a

lecture stating that ‘the best present a person can receive on their 30th birthday is muscle relaxing therapy if they wish to preserve a younger fresher appearance’ – I agreed with this at the time. However some younger individuals really overuse their upper facial muscles. Lifestyle, computer work and constantly using electronic devices has given rise to the age dropping slightly to around 25 years – the Facebook frown has landed!

 

Dermal Fillers-

 

When used correctly on the face to give a younger fresher look in faces which are showing the first signs of ageing are a useful tool. However younger people are requesting larger lips and cheek volume also. If a younger client wants lip filler to address a weak non existent top lip this can be justified as it addresses facial balance and symmetry. Making lips very large without considering the face and impact it will have on the whole facial contours can make an individual look almost caricature. Also when you look at a person you should normally be drawn to the eye area, if youare not then it’s usually because something else on the face is exaggerated. By addressing all

areas of concern at once, everything on the face matches artistically, which leads to the most

natural-looking results.

 

Peeling Agents

 

Simple, safe, non-invasive and unbelievably effective when administered correctly, they are a

fabulous route to improving the condition of your skin without the need to take time off work or play. Ideal for younger skin that tends to suffer more with blocked pores and acne like symptoms. Alpha hydroxy acid derives from sugar cane, it works by loosening the ‘glue-like’ attachments of cellular cement that is characteristic of many skin conditions such as premature ageing due to too much sun exposure and sun bed use, acne, discolouration and coarse bumpy skin texture. It helps to reduce cell build up and give a smoother, fresher skin appearance which ultimately makes your skin tone more attractive. A great way of boosting collagen also as long as SPF creams are used daily.

 

 

Mesotherapy

 

A technique widely used in France since the 1950’s. Mesotherapy is a medical procedure that is largely desired by clients who wish to improve circulation in specific areas. Helping to counteract the contributing factors that lead to sullen sagging skin and loss of fluids. Mesotherapy is the

application of a personalised cocktail of vitamins and I inject them into the areas to be treated.This helps brighten ashen skin and plumps up baggy areas, especially helpful around dark sagging eyes and the décolleté to help with fine lines and wrinkles.

 

This is ideal for younger individuals as well as older clients as a great first step into feeding the skin with essential vitamins and much needed hydrators and anti-oxidants.
