Ageing is a fact of life and it usually shows most on our faces. This is largely due to our body making less collagen. Collagen is the substance that gives our skin a firm and youthful appearance. It acts as a support structure for our skin, provides overall volume and gives shape to our face. However, from an early age the amount we produce slows down and facial volume is lost.
Probably the most effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles is prevention in the form of a high factor (SPF 50) sunscreen. We use and sell the market leading Heliocare® range of products. Stopping smoking and using a good quality skincare regime, such as the clinic-only medical grade ZO are also beneficial lifestyle changes.
However, once the lines have appeared, there are several possible non-surgical treatments. Anti-wrinkle injections, Dermal fillers, chemical peels, SkinPen® and IPL all have beneficial effects on fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin boosters are being recognised as a real investment in improving the quality of your skin rather than just treating the damage. They can be used alongside anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, in fact alongside most other treatments.
The targeted HydraFacial Anti-Ageing treatment uses the DermaBuilder multi-peptide anti-ageing serum to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also enhancing the skin’s elasticity, for visibly noticeable plumping and tightening of the skin. The HydraFacial is the ultimate way to rebuild the health of your skin and provide deep, lasting hydration.
