Specialising in anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, PRP, thread lifts and double chin treatments, our doctor and nurse, Dr Qikun Bao and Elise Glazenburg’s underlying philosophy is to enhance your appearance without compromising your natural look.
What is an Anti-wrinkle treatment?
Using a natural purified protein, anti-wrinkle treatments relax dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are formed during facial expressions, overtime causing the appearance of fine lines.
For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become more prominent. Once the muscles are relaxed, you are unable to contract them and continue to make undesirable facial expressions. As a result, lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
What can be treated?
- frown or worry lines
- crows feet or laughter lines
- forehead (surprise lines)
- ‘re-sculpting’ a square jawline, softening your appearance and preventing the grinding of teeth
- Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating of the underarms, hands, feet and groin area
How long does the treatment last?
Treatment takes less than 20 minutes and lasts up to 4 months.
What does a dermal filler treat?
As we age, we lose volume and structure in our skin due to the loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Made from a naturally occurring complex sugar, hyaluronic Acid (HA), it is able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.
Dermal fillers are carefully injected beneath the skins surface to diminish the depth of facial folds and to gently restore structure and volume to the skin and lips.
What can be treated?
- nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
- cheeks – to fill out hollows
- smokers’ lines
- under eye hollows
- chin crease
- acne/chicken pox scarring
- corner of mouth for ‘drooping’ smile
- tear troughs (hollows under the eye area)
How long Does the treatment last?
Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and can last 6 – 12 months.
There is no downtime with any injectable treatment, leaving you able to return to normal activities immediately – perfect for your lunch time ‘pick me up’.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PRP is a non-surgical skin treatment that uses the healing potential of your own blood to stimulate skin cells.
Using your own growth factors from the plasma in your blood, PRP activates tissue regeneration by:
- Stimulation of new collagen production
- Stimulation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
- Inducing cell differentiation
Visible results are seen in 3 weeks, improving gradually over the next 12 – 18 months. For optimal results, we recommend 2 – 3 treatments at 4 week intervals.
- Around the eyes
- Cheeks and midface
- Thinning skin on neck
- Back of hands
- Chest and décolletage
- Border of lips for fine lines
As we are using your own blood, this treatment is hypoallergenic. Prior to treatment, a thorough consultation is required with your treating nurse or doctor.
When women and men are asked what they consider their two main signs of facial ageing, the answer is invariably loss of skin tone causing sagging of facial contours and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and creases.
Anti-Aging Skin Treatment
SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones, enabling two combined actions: an immediate lifting effect and a natural facial rejuvenation. After a local anaesthetic is administered, these threads are inserted under the skin, and held in place by cones. No incisions are required and the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, in clinic. Silhouette Soft® can be used as a single treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle skin treatments.
The face is redefined, volume restored and the effects of ageing significantly reduced.
