Growing older comes with a wealth of positives; you become much more comfortable within your own skin, you learn your limitations and your strengths and you find a lifestyle that works for you. However, not everything that comes with the ageing process is positive. Although we know the development of signs of ageing in the skin is inevitable it can still be a shock when you notice them prematurely. Thankfully Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers a wide range of cosmetic treatments to help hold back the hands of time.
Lines and wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles in the skin are by far the most complained about ageing factors, so it’s no surprise that anti-wrinkles treatments are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments worldwide. At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer both dermal filler and Botox injection treatments to fight the look appearance of lines and wrinkle in the skin.
Botox is a great treatment for patients wanting to prevent the formation of further signs of ageing within the skin. This is because Botox’s muscle freezing nature means that patients can restrict the usage of the facial muscles that contribute to the creasing of the skin. The end result is smooth and youthful looking skin.
On the other hand, dermal fillers are a great solution for patients that have noticed a reduction in the fullness of their skin. This is because dermal fillers are designed to plump up the skin and can therefore help to fill out lines and wrinkles.
With both treatments carrying a treatment time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time needed, they are perfect for patients with busy schedules.
Loss of volume
The loss of volume within the face is a huge ageing issue that many people face. This reduction is caused a loss of collagen within the skin, but luckily there are treatments out there that can help you restore your collagen levels and rejuvenate your skin.
At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer dermaroller treatment to help restore a youthful fullness to the face. Dermaroller treatment involves rolling a cosmetic roller with micro-needles over the surface of the skin. The roller punctures the top layer of skin in order to speed up the skin healing process and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin. This results in a youthful and toned appearance to the skin.
Dermaroller treatment is usually performed in a course of three to five treatments, with six to eight week intervals between sessions. Patients may not see instant results following treatment as it takes time for the body to produce collagen, but patients usually see a visible improvement by the six month mark following treatment.
We now know the risks involved with unprotected sun exposure, and many of us make a conscious effort to shield ourselves from harmful UVA and UVB rays where possible. However, for some of us this information came a little too late, or we foolishly ignored it and as a result we’ve developed age spots on our skin.
Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers IPL laser treatment to combat the look of age spots and hyperpigmentation in the skin, which will help to achieve a youthful and even skin-tone. IPL laser treatment works by penetrating the skin with different wavelengths of light energy in order to break down different pigments within the skin.
IPL laser treatment is perfect for patients looking for a long term solution to their pigmentation issues and reverse the signs of ageing through the removal of age spots.
