In this blog post, we will be covering the top skin rejuvenation treatments to achieve younger and fresher skin, so you are ready for summer.
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma.
This treatment is also known as Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy as this rejuvenating treatment uses your own blood healing properties to restore and improve the look and quality of the skin. PRP is a treatment that starts by collecting the blood (same process as a blood test) then the sample is placed in a centrifuge so the platelets and plasma can separate. Thereafter the refined PRP is injected into the treatment areas. The PRP injections encourage the body’s production of collagen to restore, rejuvenate, plump and add volume to the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive laser treatment ideal to rejuvenate the skin as it can target sun damaged skin, pigmentation, brown spots and fine lines and wrinkles.
At The Private Clinic we offer two different types of laser:
- Pearl Laser: The pearl laser treatment targets early signs of ageing, sun damage and wrinkles. There is no downtime with this procedure.
- Pixel Laser for Skin Resurfacing: The pixel laser treatment targets pigmentation and scars. Pearl laser is suitable for all skin types.
Dermal Fillers are non-invasive treatments that use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body to plump up the skin and fill in lines, wrinkles or contour the face.
There are several areas that can be targeted with Dermal fillers depending on your desired goals.
- Under the eyes (Tear Trough). Filler around this area can help remove dark circles giving a fresher and more youthful appearance.
- Lips to improve the volume and shape.
- Cheeks to help create a more contoured look and fuller cheeks.
- Nose to mouth lines (Naso-labial folds) to rejuvenate the lower part of the face.
- Mouth to Chin lines (Marionette lines)
- Lip Lines
- 8 point lift or non-surgical facelift is another option available. That consists of targeting several areas of the face simulating a surgical facelift.
The one-stitch facelift or 3D Facelift is a surgical procedure, less invasive than a full facelift carried out under local anaesthetic. The results are more subtle in comparison to a full traditional facelift but it provides a firmer, tighter and more rejuvenated appearance to the face. All the stitches are completely hidden under the hairline. There is also a lower risk of swelling and bruising and there is minimal downtime required as patients can be back to work in a day.
Chemical Peels are a skin treatment ideal to treat tired skin, sun damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. The treatment consists of an intense exfoliating process to remove all the dead cells from the skin surface to reveal a smoother and more even skin.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a treatment to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The substance injected (Botulinum toxin), relaxes the facial muscles responsible for causing the moments that create these lines and wrinkles. This treatment not only targets existing signs of ageing but also prevents the formation of new lines.
Thermage is a non-invasive procedure able to tighten and contour the skin at the same time. Thermage is ideal for patients who want to tighten loose jowls, sagging skin, lines and wrinkles or smooth out any dimples or bulges on the skin.
Profhilo is an injectable treatment that encourages your skin to produce more collagen to help rejuvenate the skin and minimise the signs of ageing. This treatment uses a hyaluronic acid solution that spreads within the skin to nourish the dermal cells, to help remodel the skin structure to restore the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
Obagi Nu-Derm system is a prescribed skin care routine to improve and refresh the overall look of the skin. The system includes a gentle cleanser, toner, correcting cream, blending cream, lotion, moisturiser and sun protection cream. Obagi caters to patients all ages, gender and skin types.
Dermaroller is a skin rejuvenating treatment ideal to achieve a smoother, brighter and fresher looking skin. The Dermaroller is a medical roller with hundreds of micro-skin needles. The device is passed across the skin causing small micro punctures in the skin to stimulate the auto regeneration and repair of the skin. This treatment is also ideal for patients who suffer from scarring.
