Is fat freezing for me?

During the natural ageing process of the skin, as we get older, our skin gets drier, thinner and has less elastic, making harder for the body to heal itself which results in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Wrinkles can affect everyone differently as a number of factors can influence your skins behaviour from genetics to environment.
Being formed because of common facial expressions, if you have wrinkles such as laugh lines and frown lines it is because during your life you have expressed certain facial muscles more than others. As we age, skin becomes less elastic so when we frown or smile those lines stick as the skin cannot bounce back.
These wrinkles occur as the skin loses it elastic structure in the skin, and are usually caused because of over-exposure to the UV rays, smoking, air pollution and other environmental factors. These wrinkles can appear on your cheeks, upper lip, the base of the neck, they start as superficial lines but over time they deepen and cause the skin to sag.
Atrophic wrinkles are wrinkles that run parallel to each other and usually appear on the forehead between your eyebrows. These wrinkles occur due to ageing and loss of collagen, elasticity and the thinning of the skin.
Also known as sleep wrinkles, they are created from sleeping on your stomach or side. As you sleep, your face gets squashed with the pillow and these leaves lines and indents on the skin; they usually fade throughout the day but as you age, these lines and wrinkles will form permanently.
As the name suggests, these wrinkles occur due to gravity and the deflation affect. Gravitational wrinkles appear as sagging skin, as the loss of collagen and elasticity will lead to the skin sagging over time.
We offer a range of treatments that can target and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Unsure of what treatments will be the best for you? When you come for your consultation, our skin will advise you on the best choice for your goals.
Botox® is injected into the targeted area, temporarily freezing the muscle so that it can no longer cause the skin to crease or fold. When the muscles are hindered from working, the skin can relax.
Dermal filler injections can plump the skin naturally. It acts like a structure, supporting in places where it lacks, giving you a more youthful-looking appearance.
The Lightfusion™ Light Therapy uses 2 light wavelengths that have been proven to be absorbed well in the skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen and elastic in that treated area.
The laser is delivered to the skin through a micro-optics lens and creates pixel sized ablation dots onto the skin which penetrates deep into the area of concern. The pixels created within the skin stimulates the production of new collagen, leading to tighter, firmer looking skin.
There is no natural way that you can completely stop wrinkles because as we age, so does our skin. However, there are ways to prevent premature wrinkles occurring, such as:
This depends upon the treatment you have.
For anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, you can see results in as little as 3 days. For treatments such as laser resurfacing, you will need around 4 sessions before you see results.
All our treatments are relatively painless. Please speak with our team if you are concerned about pain or side effects.
All our anti-wrinkle treatments offer little to no downtime, allowing you to carry on with your day. You may experience some redness or puffiness depending upon the treatment; however, this usually only lasts for a small time and our team will advise you on any after care instructions.
