Who is suitable for Thermage body treatments?

If you would like to reverse the effects of aging on your skin, but don’t want to look like you’ve had work done, Thermage CPT is the ideal solution. Thermage is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that delivers real results in a single treatment. But who is suitable for Thermage body treatments.

What is Thermage
Thermage CPT is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to firm and contour the skin. It also stimulates new collagen, which creates a tightening effect. Thermage can be used almost anywhere on the face and body, but is frequently used to rejuvenate the face, neck, abdomen, and thighs. When used on the face, Thermage provides a subtle lift to the brows, and tightens jowls and sagging neck skin.

The production of new, healthy collagen takes a few months, so although there will be some initial improvement after treatment, final results can take up to 6 months to show.

Who is suitable for Thermage body treatments?
Thermage is suitable for men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and body. It is ideal for individuals looking for a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that provides real results. Generally, people in their thirties and older with skin that is not too loose or damaged, are good candidates. Candidates for Thermage should also be in good health and be non-smokers.

Thermage is also an excellent option for those looking to delay or prevent the need for surgery. However, it is not recommended for people with excessively loose skin, and a lot of underlying fat.

Thermage skin tightening treatment is available in Liverpool, Merseyside UK at Sthetix Cosmetic Clinic, also serving Chester and Ormskirk.

Where does the fat come from for facial fat injections?

Where does the fat come from for facial fat injections?

Is your face starting to lose its full, perky appearance? Facial fat injections can restore fullness to the facial tissues and combat volume loss. The results gained with facial fat injections are long-lasting and look very natural. But where does the fat come from for facial fat injections.

Facial Fat Injections
Facial fat injections also known as facial fat transfer is a process in which small amounts of a patient’s fat cells are taken from another part of the body, and used to add volume to specific parts of the face. Facial fat injections enhance volume, improve contours, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Where does the fat come from for facial fat injections?
The fat used for facial fat injections is taken from those regions of the body that have excess fat. The abdomen and love handles are the most common donor areas.

The fat cells are harvested using a micro-liposuction technique, and are then processed and purified, before being transferred to the face. In order to ensure a reliable level of graft take, the fat must be carefully harvested, and the correct technique must be used to inject the harvested fat cells into the recipient site. Once the fat cells are transferred to the new site, they must establish a new blood supply to survive.

Facial fat transfer is a low risk procedure because it uses the patient’s own fat.

What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?

What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?

Are you looking for a remedy for your aging or sun damaged skin? PRP and microneedling are excellent skin enhancement treatments that can boost the tone and texture of the skin. Both treatments can work well on their own, but what are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP.

What is microneedling?
Microneedling (collagen induction therapy), is a skin rejuvenation procedure in which a device with numerous tiny needles is used to revive the skin’s regenerative process. The needles create miniscule pin-holes in the skin that trigger the production of new collagen and elastin within the dermal layer of the skin. Microneedling treats skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture, and acne scars.

What is PRP?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma therapy is a procedure that can be used to repair damage to the skin. It is done by drawing blood from the patient, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. The platelets, which are rich in growth factors, are then applied to the skin and promote tissue remodeling. PRP reduces wrinkles and fine lines and treats acne scars and stretch marks.

What are the benefits of combining microneedling with PRP?
When combined with microneedling, the PRP is able to penetrate deeper into the skin through the micro-channels that were created. This allows the growth factors to reach into more components of the skin. PRP can therefore affect the skin in a more uniform way, and deliver long lasting skin rejuvenation results.

Combining microneedling with PRP provides superior skin rejuvenation benefits, and enriches the overall quality of the skin.

How can I reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

How can I reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

If you have fine lines and wrinkles on your face, they can be a constant reminder of just how old you are. But you don’t have to live with these visible reminders, because there are treatments available that can minimize their appearance. But just how can you reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

How can I reduce fine lines and wrinkles?
It’s possible to reduce fine lines and wrinkles with laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to firm the skin and decrease the appearance of wrinkles.

The Halo laser by Sciton is one of the most efficient and advanced laser systems available. The Halo laser is a hybrid fractional laser that combines two types of laser energy, ablative and non-ablative, to create a powerful wrinkle-reducing solution.

How Halo treats fine lines and wrinkles
The ablative wavelength targets the skin’s upper layers and gently removes the damaged layers. At the same time, the non-ablative wavelength works below the surface in the deeper layers, creating microscopic zones of injury that stimulate the body’s healing process. The thermal injury remodels the treated skin and activates the production of new collagen, which makes the skin plumper and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What to expect with Halo laser treatment
The Halo laser treatment is virtually painless, and takes about 20-30 minutes to perform. There may be some mild redness and swelling after treatment but this usually resolves after about 48 hours. Peeling may also occur, and typically lasts 5-7 days.

Which body contouring procedure is right for me?

Which body contouring procedure is right for me?

Would you like to contour and tone your body? Non-surgical body contouring may be the answer for you. Non-surgical body contouring uses different procedures to remove unwanted inches, for the purpose of sculpting and reshaping the body. There are two methods to consider skin tightening or fat reduction. But which body contouring procedure is right for you.

Non-surgical body contouring is an effective way to contour those areas that are difficult to tone with diet and exercise. There are a range of procedures that deliver outstanding body contouring results including SculpSure and Ultherapy.

Which body contouring procedure is right for me?
The body contouring procedure that is right for you will depend on your specific body issues, and the areas you want treated.

If you need to reduce stubborn fat in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, or below the chin, SculpSure can melt away that fat for you. SculpSure uses low level laser energy to penetrate down to the fat cells. The heat causes a thermal reaction that melts the fat, which is subsequently flushed out from the body’s lymphatic system. SculpSure is a 25 minute treatment that reduces fat in the targeted area by up to 24%.

If you need to tighten skin that has become loose due to the effects of aging or weight loss, Ultherapy is a great skin tightening option. Unlike SculpSure, Ultherapy does not remove fat. Ultherapy uses proven ultrasound technology to tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. The ultrasound energy stimulates collagen, which helps to strengthen and firm the layers of the skin.
