Fine Lines & Wrinkles
We all want to age gracefully. But what does that really mean? While loss of elasticity, slower cell turnover and fine lines are all natural signs of aging, can we really turn back the clock?
At Face Plus Medispa women as young as 25 start worrying about preserving their youthful appearance. While we can’t stop you from aging we can help you age gracefully from the inside out.
Below is a refined list of our treatment menu from facials to laser to injectables that will all help you maintain that youthful glow.
Facial Treatment: Plumping Collagen Facial
From the age of 25 our skin starts to lose elasticity, firmness and fullness.
These factors can lead to sagging skin, lines and wrinkles.
An in-clinic treatment we can’t recommend enough is the Collagen Facial!
This is one of our most luxurious anti-ageing facials we have available.
What does it do?
The supreme performance of the Collagen Fleece Mask will improve skin elasticity and restructure damaged skin.
How does it work?
We start by prepping the skin with a gentle cleanse and exfoliation, under steam. This super facial rebalances and rejuvenates the skins acid mantel. The facials active ingredients stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, naturally in the skin. The high performance fleece mask (containing collagen) assists with the direct absorption of collagen into the skin.
The Collagen facial is suitable for anyone wanting to rebuild the loss of collagen.
A not to be missed facial for anyone over the age of 40.
This facial is also great for sensitive skin.
For optimum results this facial should be performed once a month in conjunction with a meticulous at home skincare regime.
Laser Treatment: Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is a pain free treatment with no down time or surface damage to your skin (non-ablative).
This laser treatment promotes vibrant, youthful and healthy looking skin by treating conditions associated with premature signs of aging, sun damage, redness, large pores, uneven texture, acne, scars, fine lines & wrinkles.
Laser Genesis treatments are ideal for young and old; younger patients looking to control their ageing process and for older patients wanting to treat signs of ageing.
A course of four to five treatments of Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing our uneven textures caused by ageing, sun damage or scars. Patients will see a more smooth, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite transforming!
Injectable Treatment (without synthetic ingredients) PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are a great alternative for those who are not looking to do inject any “foreign products” into their body.
PRP has been used in the medical industry for a long time (particularly in sports medicine) and is now an incredible tool we use in our Face Plus Medispa clinic for cosmetic rejuvenation.
Extracted from your blood, platelets have many functions and contain growth factors that, when secreted are responsible for tissue regeneration and most importantly increasing collagen production.
Following a PRP treatment, patients will discover their skin is plumper, bounces back a little faster and is lifted. A total of 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results, however, most of our patients see results following just one treatment.
We often combine PRP with other facials and lasers to achieve phenomenal, lasting results.
Injectable Treatment (Anti-wrinkle, muscle relaxants)
Cosmetically, muscle relaxants are injected into the muscles of the face in order to block nerve impulses to the tissue that allows the facial muscles to contract.
When we express with our facial muscles they contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Muscle relaxants work beneath the skin’s surface by targeting this underlying muscle activity by weakening the target muscle in order to prevent formation of expression lines. With muscle activity reduced, a smoother look to the skin is achieved as the muscle beneath it is no longer able to crease the skin.
At a cellular level, nerve endings send chemical messengers called Acetylcholine to the muscles to tell them to contract. Botulinum toxin works to surround this chemical and essentially ‘block’ these messengers, therefore keeping the muscle relaxed so that it cannot contract and cause wrinkles in the skin.
A good time to start using botox is not so much dependent on age, but whether the patient is beginning to develop ‘static’ lines (lines that remain even after the muscle has relaxed).
At Face Plus we aim to only relax the muscles and keep them hypokinetic, rather than causing them to be atonic (paralysed), as this is essential in retaining a natural look. An ideal forehead treatment allows the brows to still be raised slightly. An ideal crow’s feet treatment allows the smile to still appear natural.
