What do you want to treat?
Tired or sunken eyes
If your eyes are looking a little tired or sunken, you might benefit from tear trough treatment. This involves using non-invasive dermal fillers to lift and rejuvenate the skin to create a brighter, more youthful appearance.
There is also the ClearLift Laser Facelift, which plumps and firms the skin while reducing pigmentation. It is great for treating puffy eyes and dark circles, and is quick (20 minutes per treatment), painless and suitable for all skin types.
Ageing eyes and wrinkles
The eyes can show the first signs of ageing, due to wrinkles appearing in the area and eyebrows and lids starting to droop. A non-surgical eyelift can address these concerns quickly and relatively inexpensively.
The ClearLift Laser Facelift also works well to treat the signs of ageing around the eyes (see above).
Skin tone inconsistencies
Pigmentation and rosacea are common concerns that can be treated easily and without anaesthetic. Laser treatments and hydradermabrasion can produce excellent results that last – the table below tells you more about both:
|Effective in treating a range of uneven skin tone complaints, including hyperpigmentation, brown spots and rosacea||Improves the appearance and hydration of the skin, detoxifying and deep cleansing the skin to leave the complexion looking fresh, even and radiant|
|Requires a course of 3-6 treatments at 4-week intervals||Recommended as a course of treatments, results can be seen after just one|
|Can cause some swelling and redness||No recovery time|
|Costs from £180 per session||Costs from £120 per session|
Acne and acne scars can cause emotional distress from childhood through to middle age. But effective treatments are available. From skin peels to laser treatment and hydradermabrasion, to powerful skin treatments, there’s something suitable for you. To help you decide, take a look at our handy flow chart:
Thin or ageing lips
While some people have naturally thin lips, loss of volume in the lips and wrinkles appearing around the mouth can also be a sign of ageing. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to add fullness and plumpness to the lips, whether to reverse the appearance of ageing or to enhance natural shape and volume.
Dermal fillers are an ideal solution as they plump and fill out lines to create a fresher, more youthful appearance. Plus the treatment is quick and the recovery time minimal.
Many people are uncomfortable when age begins to show on their face. As the skin ages, it gets thinner and loses elasticity, causing wrinkles to form. But advances in aesthetic medicine mean there are a huge range of cosmetic treatments now available to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Hugely popular for its ability to smooth the skin (among other beneficial effects), Botox is often seen as the go-to treatment for wrinkles. But depending on the type of wrinkle and the result you’re looking to achieve, it might be that dermal fillers are a more suitable option – or even a combination of the two. Read on for our handy Botox versus dermal fillers FAQs.
Alternatively, you might benefit from Profhilo – a new style of wrinkle treatment recently added to the menu at Health & Aesthetics. This injectable treatment stimulates the production of collagen and so improves wrinkles and sagging.
Or you could achieve the plumper, youthful skin you long for with the ClearLift Laser Facelift. Triggering the production of collagen below the skin’s surface, this procedure is relatively painless and extremely effective.
Botox vs dermal fillers – which is right for me?
I have a special occasion coming up and would like a quick fix to look fresh and youthful. What’s the best option for me?
Botox is a great treatment for quick results targeting the commonest areas for wrinkles: frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines.
I’ve got lines on my forehead that I can always see, even when my face is resting. How can I reduce their appearance?
Profhilo or dermal fillers are the best option here: they can smooth static wrinkles (those that are visible despite no muscle movement)
My eyes and cheeks are starting to look sunken and hollow with age. My friend had Botox and she looks a lot younger – should I go for it too?
Dermal fillers would be a much better bet. Fillers add structure and volume to areas of the face that become hollow with age – Botox can’t be used for this purpose as it simply reduces muscle movement.
I’m concerned about wrinkles and loss of volume. Could I have both Botox and dermal fillers?
Yes –Both Botox and fillers can be used. But your practitioner may recommend treating with Botox first to see the results before adding fillers – it depends on the individual.
