HOW WE TREAT AGED SKIN.

The three effects of aged skin lines/wrinkles, loss of volume and skin laxity will be addressed in your initial consultation and for optimum results we will recommend the most suitable approach tailored to your needs, which may be a combination of treatments including one or more of the following:

Injectable Treatments

Muscle Relaxants – The treatment proven to reduce dynamic muscle movement is the muscle relaxant BotoxTM, which temporarily stops specific muscles creasing the skin and prevents or slows the formation of permanent lines /wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers – At Cosmex Clinic we use a range of dermal fillers to both fill lines once they have formed and replace lost volume, or even reduce the effects of acne scarring.  Some examples are:

  • Restylane Skin boosters to enhance the skin in areas where is has become thin and lost elasticity and hydration e.g. The back of the hands,neck and fine lines on the face.
  • Restylane Lyps or Restylane Kysse are soft fillers for enhancing lips
  • Restylane products for replacing the volume lost in the mid and lower face.
  • Radiesse to enhance the chin or jaw line

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy –  Is a process where a sample of the patient’s own blood is drawn off and the growth factor containing platelets are concentrated in the plasma, with other unwanted components removed.  This platelet rich plasma is then injected into the treatment site and the patient’s own growth factors do the rest.
