Ageing

As we age there are a number of processes that take place. This is important to understand when
it comes to attempting to correct them, as treatment should be a multifaceted approach.

In our 30’s there’s not too much to worry about! Depending on your skin, exposure to the sun and genetics, this is when we start to create lines along the places where our facial expressions are demonstrated. Common concerns at this age are mostly frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. For some people these frown lines can make them look angry, when in fact that is not the case. These patients have a fantastic outcome with anti-wrinkle injections.

In our 40’s we start to lose volume in the fat pads of the face, and our skin starts to lose its laxity.
At this age commonly some anti wrinkle injections can help to significantly smooth these lines along with perhaps a small amount of dermal fillers to restore the normal contour.

Moving into our 50’s the above processes have taken place, but also the ligaments which hold the fat pads in place become loose and we start to develop a ‘jowl’ and heavy folds from the nose to the mouth. The skin of the neck can become loose and crepey. Sometimes we develop a ‘sad’ looking face due to these changes. All of our available treatments may be appropriate at this age.

In the 60’s the bones in the face lose density and projection, particularly in the mouth. The upper lip becomes elongated and thin, and the mouth becomes drawn in.

Ageing should be thought of as a continuous process, and therefore treatment is best to be continuous and layered in approach. Anti wrinkle injections relax the muscles, dermal fillers provide the structure and support, and ongoing skin care provides a good canvas to appear healthy and fresh.

Acne | Scarring

Acne scars can have a profound effect on people’s well being and confidence.

Many people are not aware that there are treatments that can significantly improve their appearance. With Dermastamp® scar reduction therapy there can be a 70-80% reduction in scarring after 3 treatments.

Here at FACE medical by infusing hyaluronic acid and PRP through the Dermastamp® we create an environment of growth factors and fibroblast activity which improves the overall skin condition.

There are many other types of scars that are amenable to treatment for example:
– surgical scars
– keloid scars
– stretch marks

Excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a severe and debilitating disorder. Sometimes medicated anti-perspirants are just not effective enough.

At FACE medical, we treat excessive sweating of the armpits with botulinum. Botulinum toxin treatment is exceptionally successful at temporarily reducing sweating with a 94% response rate.

Dr Cheryl ensures a high response rate by undertaking an starch-iodine test. This shows the area of the armpits which are producing the most sweat, and therefore she can concentrate her treatment in that area.

The treatment lasts approximately 6 months.

Thin lips | Peri-oral lines

Some clients are born with thin lips, and some develop thin lips as they age, along with some lines around the mouth (peri-oral lines).

Restoring volume, fullness and definition of the lip can make a vast difference to your appearance. For younger women, they only may need to enhance what they have been naturally gifted with.
Building a beautiful set of lips takes skill and precision. Dr Cheryl uses only 1ml of lip specific filler for the initial appointment, to create a subtle look that can be built on if necessary.
