Wrinkles are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin. They normally appear as we get older, first materialising on our faces as a result of repetitive facial expressions. Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, various medications, environmental factors, our sleeping position, and some hereditary elements can affect when and where we develop wrinkles. Generally, wrinkles are not a welcome addition to our faces and globally, we spend millions of pounds on treatments to remove or delay them. Some opt for surgery to delay the signs of ageing whereas many seek non-surgical wrinkle treatment.
Seeking out wrinkle busting treatments is by no means a new phenomenon. In ancient times, Greeks and Romans mixed crocodile dung with mud to create a mask that would keep them looking youthful. Victorian ladies would smear their faces in a mercury compound to address scars, acne and wrinkles, which would, in fact, poison them slowly and erode the top layer of their epidermis. Today we have some almost equally surprising treatments to retain our youth; placenta, leech, and vampire facials, whilst others take a more simple approach using essential oils and a clean diet.
Cosmetic surgery can help reduce deep wrinkles and sagging skin, for instance, facelift surgery, which lifts up the skin and soft tissues to make your face tighter and smoother. The operation can be done on your whole face or on your brow area, lower face and neck. Your face will continue to age after you have a facelift, and the best results are achieved in people who have skin with good levels of elasticity and have a strong bone structure to start with. Cosmetic surgery is the most aggressive of wrinkle treatments and usually has the greatest effect, but it also has a greater recovery time and risks.
Due to the invasive nature of cosmetic surgery, non-surgical wrinkle treatments have a wide appeal because there is no need for anaesthetic, a lot less pain, and none of the associated downtime or higher risk of infection.
Secret RF Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatment
One of the main factors responsible for wrinkles is the loss of collagen. Collagen is a protein that is an essential part of the connective tissues in the body. Loss of collagen can cause the skin to lose elasticity, reduce the thickness of the epidermis, and cause an increase in the formation of wrinkles and sagging.
One treatment designed to combat the loss of collagen is the Secret RF, which can be used to help encourage the production of collagen, by using radio-frequency alongside a micro-needling system. Able to provide consistent results, while requiring very little downtime, Secret RF is quickly becoming a popular choice with those who want to combat the typical signs of ageing. The combination of radio-frequency and micro-needles causes the blood to coagulate and create haemostasis. The thickened blood replicates the same action as collagen within the body. When the coagulated blood remains in the treated area, you will notice that fine lines and wrinkles become far less apparent.
Secret RF Treatment
This therapy is unique in that it provides a range of different frequencies to better suit each area of treatment, and can be individualised to suit the needs of each patient as no two of us are the same. It can also treat varying depths within the epidermis, allowing for a much more effective result, even within the most challenging skin.
The Secret RF has minimal downtime, and the results can be seen in as little as one session. However, the optimal number of sessions required will be discussed with you during your consultation. For most people, this is usually three to four treatments, although you will likely see the results after the second treatment and anywhere up to three months after the first session. The Secret RF is most popular with people who want to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and any area on the body or face can be treated.
