Fast Ways To Fight Wrinkles
Possibly the biggest tell-tale sign of ageing, facial wrinkles will inevitably affect all of us at some point.
After years of smiling, frowning, squinting and laughing, the skin on our face not only becomes thinner and drier, but when combined with the loss of natural collagen, the effects of prolonged sun damage and other lifestyle factors like smoking and alcohol consumption, you have a perfect recipe for lines, creases, wrinkles and folds to appear.
However, the days of simply accepting that wrinkles are here to stay are long gone. Today, there are a range of fast and effective treatment options that can help you eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, so you can restore the vibrant, youthful appearance you once knew. Here are a few of our top picks.
Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective way to treat existing lines and wrinkles, while also preventing new wrinkles from appearing by targeting the issue at the source.
Wrinkles are largely caused by the prolonged and repeated contraction of our facial muscles when we smile, laugh or frown. Anti-wrinkle injections work by stopping the facial muscles from responding to the messages sent from the brain which normally make them contract. This forces the facial muscles to relax, resulting in smoother skin that is less prone to wrinkling.
Treatments can be performed quickly (in as little as 10 minutes) and will usually last between three to six months before gradually fading away.
Facial fat transfer treatments
A popular alternative to dermal filler treatments, facial fat transfer treatments are an effective way to plump up facial features and treat facial lines and wrinkles.
As a natural, non-allergenic procedure, facial fat transfer treatments work by extracting your own fat from another area of the body by liposuction, processing it to remove excess fluids, then injecting it just underneath your skin in the affected areas to create a fuller, more youthful appearance.
While results will vary between patients, facial fat transfers can last for years and can prove to be a cost-effective treatment option when combined with other procedures (such as liposuction). Facial fat transfer treatments can also be combined with other treatments including Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments to increase their effectiveness.
Factor 4 treatments
Factor 4 anti-ageing treatments are another effective way to treat facial wrinkles, as well as other issues such as creping of the face, neck and décolletage, dark circles around the eyes, stretch marks and scars.
As one of the most advanced anti-ageing treatments on the market, Factor 4 treatments use the body’s own blood in a highly-concentrated plasma which contains anti-inflammatory, growth and repair factors, which naturally stimulates collagenases and slows the skins ageing process.
We usually recommend patients undergo three or four treatments, two to four weeks apart, with patients usually noticing a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in the overall texture of the skin a couple of weeks after their first treatment.
