Flirty face!

Flirty face!

Brighten up your facial features and get your flirt on this February!

Most people can see that they are looking older but do not recognize that volume loss is the reason that their face is beginning to "sink" and "sag". Numerous studies have shown that gravity is not the only determinant of ageing. Tissue atrophy, bone resorption and loss of collagen in the skin, all play a role in the loss of facial volume and contours.

Skin

Get your glow back with one of our results-driven anti-ageing facials, the Brightening Facial. This facial rejuvenates and stimulates old skin cells to revert to their youthful renewal pattern, significantly improving skin quality and glow! The Brightening Facial includes microdermabrasion and transdermal skin lighteners to improve hormonal pigmentation and uneven skin tone. 6 Sessions are recommended at 2 week intervals.

Lips

The lips have been associated with female sexuality throughout time and women who possess large full lips, are thought to be more physically desirable.

Unfortunately as we age, we begin to lose dental and structural support in the lower face and experience volume loss in the soft tissues in general and in the lips specifically. As these areas become less plump, they wrinkle more easily and the mouth develops a "mouth frown" and “smokers lines” which are some of the most ageing signs. The sooner one starts with soft tissue rejuvenation with fillers the better, as early developing lip wrinkles are much easier to treat with dermal fillers.

Lip rejuvenation includes filling out some of the fine wrinkles and lines located at the junction of the skin and the lip, restoring the Cupid's bow and raising up the mouth corners. The vermilion border should also be treated as this prevents the lip from excessive pursing, which occurs with normal mouth functioning such as drinking and talking.

For a natural appearing lip, the body of the lip should be plumped as well for a fuller yet more natural shape. Lips should not be over-filled and with proper techniques they can be made fuller yet still look natural.

Natural lip rejuvenation requires the expertise and experience of the doctor as the result depends very much on the doctor's technique. Do your research well to ensure that the doctor you choose for a natural lip rejuvenation procedure performs numerous treatments each day.

Treatment of advanced lip wrinkles is a challenging problem as there is no complete cure in most cases, just an improvement. If lip lines are left neglected, they become permanently ingrained and scar like and very resistant to treatments.

We offer additional in house treatments for advanced lip wrinkles, such as Laser Genesis, Carboxytherapy and Dermaroller™ Skin Needling. In the more severe cases of smoker's lines, a small amount of Botox is injected into the top lip to help reduce the amount of muscle movement and improve the lip rejuvenation process.

Eyes

Transform your stressed, tired, baggy eyes into a smoother, younger and brighter look. The delicate skin below the eyes is thin and it does not contain the same amount of oil glands like the rest of the body. It is therefore one of the first areas of the face to show age-related changes. The skin around the eye gets dry and the padding over the orbital bone reduced, causing the skin of the lower eyelid to be pressed on the orbital bone. This results in the appearance of prominent eye bags, the development of crow’s feet and appearance of dark circles. These changes are a constant reminder of the speed at which we age and can dampen an otherwise youthful appearance.

Very few women can afford the luxury of taking time off work for cosmetic surgery, yet most women would do anything to improve their looks. Previously there were no effective, non-surgical treatments for the management of ageing around the eyes, apart from eye creams that offered minimal improvement.

Today, however, specific treatments are available that will powerfully re-model and improve elasticity and collagen strength around the eye area:

• Pearl Fractional laser Eye Rejuvenation: Pearl fractional laser powerfully re-models the area around the eye and improves elasticity and collagen strength area in the upper and lower eyelid, improving the crows feet in the process. After the procedure one can expect 2 to 3 days of painless swelling around the eye area and the overall downtime is between 4 to 6 days. Treatments are safe and effective with rapid recovery. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of safety, patient experience and recovery time. After the procedure, patients notice a more open eye expression and a brighter complexion around the eye area.

• Carboxytherapy: This sensitive area requires very specific treatments that can powerfully re-model the elasticity and collagen strength of the skin. Other causes of dark circles are lack of sleep, nasal congestion, hormonal changes or certain drugs. With the advent of Carboxytherapy dark circle rejuvenation is possible. After 4 or 6 treatments of Carboxytherapy to the lower eyelids, there is marked improvement in eyelid texture, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, vascular pooling, fatty prolapse and tissue luminosity. The theory behind this treatment is that by mildly insufflating the lower eyelids with carbon dioxide, blood flow to the area is increased and oxygenation improved leading to improvements in the skin texture and colour. The results appear to be accumulative and permanent and touch ups can be done 6 to 9 months later.

• Restylane Eye Rejuvenation: After the Pearl laser procedure or Carboxytherapy, Restylane eye rejuvenation is advised to improve the appearance of under eye bags and dark circles. With this new technique, the hollow tear trough is filled with hyaluronic acid which plumps up the skin under the eye and allows light to be reflected. This tear trough rejuvenation contours the lower eyelids in a safe and minimally invasive way and brings back a youthful volume. You'll have a series of micro-injections along the line of the hollow using Juvederm or Teosyal - hyaluronic gel filler - followed by a little gentle massage to distribute the gel evenly. There is only minimal discomfort and the procedure only takes about 10 minutes. It is best to seek out an experienced doctor to carry out the treatment as the results are very injector dependent. There could be mild swelling and a 10% chance of bruising around the eyes, which settles quickly. You'll see the results instantly and the effect lasts around nine to 12 to 18 months.

After these amazing anti-ageing treatments from Skin Renewal, you will again feel confident enough to bat those eyelashes and to pout those lips at the special person in your life! Look your best this year starting now!
