Non-Surgical Aesthetic Treatments

Jawline and Chin Correction

Jawline and pre-jowl correction

One of the key signs of ageing is sagging skin along the jaw line, which results in the appearance of a loose double chin with excess skin visible. The effects of sun damage, age, and gravity all work to put some excess skin along the chin and jaw line which many people wish to address using less invasive techniques.

In some cases, this can be corrected with dermal filler which works to add volume to areas of loose skin and will lift the neck and jaw enough to produce a significant and dramatic effect.

Chin Enhancement

The chin is an important feature of the face. By enhancing and correcting the volume of the chin, the jaw line can be sharpened; the profile of the face balanced and the amount of excess skin and fat in the neck can be reduced.

The non-surgical, non-invasive chin reshaping involves the use of a dermal filler, injected to reshape and contour the chin to achieve a natural appearance, in a quick, safe and effective out-patient treatment.

This treatment is particularly effective for patients who do not wish to undergo invasive surgery but feel they wish to make small changes to the shape and contour of the chin. The results may last up to one year depending on the type of filler used. Downtime, bruising and swelling associated with this procedure is minimal and the procedure is relatively pain free.

NON-SURGICALFACELIFT

What is Non-Surgical Facelift?

Until recently, the only solution for anyone looking for a nose reshaping was a surgical rhinoplasty. While a surgical nose job remains the solution for major size and shape reconstruction, most patients’ concerns can be addressed with a non-surgical nose correcting procedure.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a non-invasive alternative for nose surgery. It involves injecting dermal filler in precise areas of nose to reshape, rebalance or resize it in harmony with the surrounding area.

Consultation before the procedure¬ is very important as the practitioner will examine the patient and try to understand his/her expectation about the outcome of the procedure as well as discussing the risks and benefits of the procedure. The consultation may include taking pictures from various angles and using them in the discussion of the treatment to tailor a treatment plan to achieve a natural looking, attractive and harmonious balance of facial features.

Non-surgical Facelift

Non-surgical face lift is a combination of different treatment options such as Botox, dermal fillers, threads and skin peels that when used together, give the overall effect of a more defined, lifted and rejuvenated complexion.

Dermal filler is used to restore lost volume in the mid face and contour the cheeks and jaw line which will bring balance and symmetry to the face. Dermal Filler can also be used to rejuvenate the lips and restore any volume that has been lost.

Chemical Peels are an additional aspect of this treatment and can be used to freshen and improve the skins hydration and texture and eradicate superficial lines around the eyes and upper lip

A full assessment will be required with an expert practitioner in this area to discuss your expectations and agree on a realistic and achievable treatment plan. We do recommend that any patient considering this option, would book a consultation with our highly experienced aesthetic practitioner, as this treatment is extremely specialised.

Most dermal fillers are premixed with local anaesthetic called lidocaine, this makes the injections more comfortable. Photographs maybe taken during the procedure from different angles that aid both the practitioner and the patient to achieve the ultimate ideal results.

What could be addressed?

  • Folds of the nose.
  • A bump or ‘hook’ on the bridge of the nose.
  • Asymmetrical nose.
  • Crooked nose.
  • A flat or a low bridge

PDO Thread Lift

What is a thread lift?

This non-surgical, mini facelift, also known as a thread lift, is effective for people with moderate sagging of the face, jawline and neck. The insertion of PDO threads to gently lift the cheek and jowls, creates an immediate visible and natural lifting effect without the appearance and recovery downtime of a full surgical facelift. PDO threads are extremely safe material used regularly in heart surgery and encourages cell cohesion.

Which areas are treatable using PDO threads

  • Jawline
  • Double chin
  • Neck
  • Upper and Lower Cheeks
  • Forehead (Brow Lifting)
  • Frown lines
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Lines

What the procedure entails?

The treatment takes place under local anaesthetic and involves small incisions being made which the thread is passed through. Once the skin is under tension, the skin is then stitched to achieve a lifted and firmer appearance. The procedure takes around 45-60 minutes depending on what treatment the patient requires. The patient can fully resume their everyday routine and social commitments within a couple of days. PDO Therapy is a tailor-made treatment which can be adjusted to the patient’s requirements at any time

What happens to the embedded threads?

The embedded PDO (Poydioxanone) threads will be dissolved within 6 months’ but the results will continue to be visible for anything between 18-24 months.

When and how the effects can be seen?

  • Non-surgical lifting
  • No rejection or significant side effects
  • Stimulates natural collagen production for 18 to 24 months
  • Stimulates skin rejuvenation, vitality, elasticity and brighter skin tone
  • Enhances blood flow and stimulates the lymph channels, helping mobilise localised fat.
  • Improves sagging skin
  • Improves the appearance of minor wrinkles and nasolabial folds

What are the risks?

PDO thread is safe and produces hardly any tissue inflammation. It may produce redness and slight pain due to the surgical impact of the suture in the tissue which subsides within a few hours.

  • It may cause bruising
  • It may produce pain over the first few days
  • Very small risk of infection
