Summer is a time to embrace all thing fun and youthful, so it can be hard when your face no longer projects these qualities. Ageing comes to us all at some point, but it can often feel like it has come too soon. As a result, many of us turn to cosmetic treatments to help keep lines and wrinkles at bay. If you are looking for a solution to your ageing skin then surgery isn’t your only option. Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to help fight the signs of ageing – without going under the knife.
Botox is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic treatments and has long been a staple of most cosmetic institutions. Botox is arguably the cosmetic treatment that made anti-ageing treatments accessible to both celebrities and the public alike, and has a huge impact on the way in which we view cosmetic treatments.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a brand of muscle relaxing injectables and provides patients with an effective barrier against the formation of lines and wrinkles. Botox works by freezing the muscles to improve the look of already present signs of ageing, whilst also preventing the formation of further lines and wrinkles. This is an effective barrier against the development of wrinkles, as it’s due to a combination of overuse of the facial muscles and the reduction of collagen present within the skin that causes lines and wrinkles to form. By freezing the facial muscles, patients can prevent further creasing in the skin.
Why Choose Botox?
Botox injections are a hugely popular cosmetic treatment, with millions of patients worldwide opting for the treatment each year. There are many reasons why patients choose to undergo Botox injections, not least because the treatment is quick and convenient. With an average treatment time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time needed, Botox injections are the perfect anti-ageing treatment for those looking to improve their ageing skin in a time period that suits them.
In addition to this, Botox also provides patients with a two-fold positive effect; not only does Botox improve the look of already present lines and wrinkles in the skin, but it also provide patients with an effective defence against the formation of further signs of ageing within the skin.
An issue that many of us have when it comes to our ageing skin is loss of volume. Developing a gaunt or sagging look to the face is a common issue of the ageing process. However it can be tackled easily with the help of dermal filler injections.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers are a group of cosmetic injectables that possess the ability to increase the volume within the skin. These injections differ in the science behind how they work, but all provide similar skin plumping properties.
Thanks to their volume enhancing qualities, dermal fillers can be used in a number of different ways for different cosmetic treatments. For example they can be used as a lip enhancer in lip augmentation treatment, and also as a contouring tool in non-surgical nose reshaping. However dermal fillers are most commonly used as non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment.
Why choose dermal filler treatment?
Dermal fillers have become a hugely popular cosmetic treatment worldwide and come with a wealth of benefits that can entice patients to undergo the treatment. One of these benefits is that dermal fillers are quick and convenient, like Botox injection. With an average procedure time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time needed, dermal fillers are the perfect cosmetic treatment for those looking for fast results in a time period to suit their lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can also provide anti-ageing results to rival those of a surgical procedure without the additional risks. This is a huge positive to many patients as it means they can gain the anti-ageing results they want without the need to put their body under additional strain.
