Everyone gets facial lines at some stage in life, but at enhanceskin we can help reduce these. In this week’s blog we thought we’d look at three areas of the face where lines and deep wrinkles often develop into tell tale signs of aging.
No matter how youthful your face looks your neck can often give the game away. Deep lines and saggy skin are difficult to conceal in this area, but before you reach for a polo neck sweater have you considered these two treatment options?
- Fractora – A procedure that uses fractionated energy to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. It is able to slow the effects of aging and restore your skin, so you can look and feel younger. Fractora is perfect for reducing fine or deep facial lines and tightening the skin, say goodbye to the turkey neck!
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – A procedure which involves taking your own blood, concentrating the platelets from that sample and reinjecting the platelets with their concentrated mix of growth factors, back into your skin to assist healing and regenerate tissue, especially collagen and elastin. This is especially good for use on crinkling skin around neck and décolletage.
- Botox – This relaxes the muscles that cause the crinkly necklace lines.
At enhanceskin we will usually recommend a combination of these treatment options on neck lines.
The vertical lines that develop between your eyebrows and nose when you frown will have been less troubling in your youth. When your skin is youthful and full of elasticity and collagen, these superficial, dynamic lines will have disappeared when you stopped frowning. As you age frown lines may become deeper and visible even when not frowning… Nobody wants to look cross all the time, so we help you say goodbye to angry frown lines. The star of the show in these cases is often Botox. This simple, non-surgical procedure softens the facial lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions and is a highly effective treatment to help reduce frown lines.
As you grow older, your face and bone structure change, losing volume, often leaving hollows and sagging and leading to deep grooves running from the nose to the mouth known as nasolabial folds, and also running down from the corners of your mouth called Marionette lines. To help restore your youthful look, come and talk to us about Dermal Fillers, these help ‘revolumise’ facial features by returning natural elements to the face that have been lost in the aging process. This is the ‘Liquid Facelift’, it gives you an instant ‘wow’ which we love to witness and is one of the things that keeps us coming to ‘work’ each day!
Other options to fight facial lines…
Medi-Facials, sometimes called Chemical Peels, can be used to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Superior to ordinary facials, the medi-facials we offer, provide clinical strength, which are results orientated, corrective treatments. The difference is evident in the truly visible results and long-term durability. These treatments utilise fruit extracts to visibly rejuvenate your skin and complexion, they work deep within the skin and encourages the appearance of new healthy cells, texture will look and feel firmer, while fine lines and wrinkles appear dramatically softened. They augment and supercharge the daily skin care regime we will have already recommended you use.
At enhanceskin we believe that aging is part of life, and as you grow older, you should expect your face and bone structure to change. We can’t, and don’t, aim to turn back the clock on aging completely, but we can help you regain fuller and balanced features, achieving a natural look that’s similar to how you looked a few years back.
