As the skin ages there are sure to be days when we look in the mirror and wish we could turn back time.
And there are many ways in which medical aesthetics can help; #wrinklerelaxinginjections, #dermalfillers,
#profhilo hyaluronic acid treatments…
All of which we do beautifully at Pure Medical Aesthetics.
But for me, prevention is key too. Skin can start to look noticabely thinner in the 40s but the process starts a decade before this, as collagen production in the skin dips around the age of 30 and the skin starts to lose its elasticity. In the world of anti-aging, prevention is the key. Hence, it’s prudent to start collagen-stimulating treatments in your 30s, building it up as your approach your 40s, the decade when many people start to look a lot older, faster.
Non-invasive ‘facelifts’ cleverly trick the skin into producing this vital protein, without the need for surgery. My particular favourite is #Ultherapy, a breakthrough procedure that uses medical ultrasound for non-surgical cosmetic improvement of the skin. It works deep below the surface – without harming the outer layer of skin-for dramatic and long-lasting benefits of facial firming, skin tightening and lifting.
#Ultherapy stimulates a collagen-rich layer beneath the dermis and fat, resulting in a productive healing response which generates high quality collagen over the following 3 to 6 months, resulting in a subtle (but noticeable) 3D lifting effect, as well as a skin thickening and pore-to-pore tightening
Improvement around the eyes can include lifting of the brow line to reduce droopiness on the eyelids, smoothing of crows’ feet, and a more open, refreshed look to the eyes in general.
Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Often, a more defined jaw line and overall improvement in skin texture and evenness of colour are known additional benefits.
Ultherapy is a not an uncomfortable procedure. No anaesthetic injection is required. Patients may feel a warm prickly sensation beneath the skin when the ultrasound energy is being delivered into the target tissue. This is how Ultherapy tightens and lifts the skin from deep within, delivering dramatic and long-lasting results.
A treatment takes approximately 60 minutes. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and can apply makeup if needed. Your skin may appear slightly flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness will subside within a few hours.
