Many of the people we treat at PHI come to us because they wish to reduce fine lines that have appeared on their faces. As we age, it’s inevitable that our skin won’t be as smooth and flawless as it once was, but do we have to accept this natural phenomenon or can we delay the signs of ageing?
We usually begin to see wrinkles and fine lines in our 30s, and while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with them, there are ways to prevent and reduce fine lines if they are getting you down.
What Are The Fine Lines On The Face?
Fine lines are small and shallow lines that appear on the face, they are an indicator of the first signs of ageing. We tend to find them mostly around the eyes and mouth as these are the areas of the face we tend to move the most with expressions.
Fine lines will eventually turn into wrinkles as you age. This happens because the collagen and elastin beneath the surface of your skin begin to break down, which means skin doesn’t have the same strength or ability to ‘bounce back’ from facial expressions as it once did.
How To Reduce Fine Lines With PHI Clinic
At PHI, we offer a plethora of methods to reduce fine lines and tighten skin that has begun to sag or loosen. By offering such a wide variety of options we can cater to each and every one of our patients as an individual. We carefully consider your objectives and build a plan with you to achieve those goals.
Often we may recommend a combination of treatments that work exquisitely in unison to create a sensational, refreshed, and renewed version of you.
Reduce Fine Lines With Devices
Radiofrequency and Microneedling
The Secret RF can be effectively used to mimic the production of our naturally declining collagen utilising a duel system of radiofrequency and microneedling. The superb double act of radiofrequency and microneedling causes the blood to coagulate and create haemostasis. In other words, the blood becomes a little thicker and this action replicates the same supportive role as collagen within the body. Following this treatment, you will find that fine lines and wrinkles become less apparent.
Skin laxity is a problem that affects everyone as we age and it is one of the culprits of our fine lines appearing. Ultrasound treatment (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) can be used to control this laxity by delivering precisely targeted controlled pulses of ultrasound to areas of concern, which starts a process called thermal coagulation. By tightening the looser skin and reducing fine lines, HIFU will give rise to an overall more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Reduce Fine Lines With Injectables
AquaGold For Fine Lines
AquaGold Fine TouchTM is a gold-plated micro-injection system that painlessly transports a tailor-made cocktail of ingredients into the dermis. These may include vitamins, enzymes, plant extracts, and micro-quantities of botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Patients who have experienced AquaGold find that they result in smoother, firmer skin, and more even texture.
Dermal Fillers For Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Dermal fillers work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles skin and give a more youthful look. At PHI, we only use the market-leading Juvederm Vycross range by Allergan which contains high levels of hyaluronic acid (HA). The high levels of HA have the effect of attracting and retaining water, which instantly improves the skin’s appearance and texture by restoring its natural plumpness.
Reduce Dynamic And Fine Lines With Botox
Many of our lines and wrinkles are caused by making repeated expressions, including crow’s feet around your eyes and lines on your forehead. We address these at PHI with the careful and prudent use of Botox to temporarily relax muscle activity. It can smooth out wrinkles and restore a more youthful aspect.
Combined Treatments Result
Very often when patients come to us to reduce fine lines and wrinkles we recommend a dual approach. One patient who came to us found that, after having children and reaching her forties, her skin was beginning to sag around the jowl area and that fine lines and wrinkles had begun to appear.
Dr Tapan, our medical director, skilfully rejuvenated her face with dermal fillers and Botox, to restore lost volume, lift sagging skin, and stop expression lines from becoming more exaggerated. The overall completed look left our patient looking a more refreshed and revitalised version of herself without being overdone.
