Deep Nose-to-Mouth Lines
Nose-to-mouth lines as the lines located on either side of the mouth. These folds which are made of dense bundles of fibrous tissue are often described as ‘brackets’ due to their semi-circular shape. They tend to become more prominent with age as the skin becomes thinner and saggy and they can make the face appear more tired and older.
There are several treatment options that are effective at reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds.
Profound RF is a break-through technology used to treat skin sagging, wrinkles and excess fat on the face, neck and body. Known as the ‘non-surgical face lift’, Profound RF is an injectable radiofrequency treatment that tightens, smoothens, hydrates and melts fat. In clinical trials, Profound RF was found to deliver 1/3 of the result of a surgical facelift in a single treatment and that 100% of patients had a clinically evident response to treatment.
Dermal filler is a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin in order to plump and lift the tissue. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler can be injected into the cheeks or directly into the nasolabial folds to lift the skin and make the area less noticeable. Both treatment options are effective and long-lasting, with no down-time.
Best for: combination of volume loss from the face and deep folds
Biostimulation involves the use of external stimuli to harness the body’s own regenerative capabilities to promote collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and promote overall rejuvenation. By activating cellular mechanisms, biostimulation can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hollowness, scars, and other signs of aging. At Drs Tatiana + Rishi Advanced Aesthetics we use biostimulators including Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), those that contain poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), e.g. Sculptra and those containing polynucleotides.
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are an increasingly popular option for treating ageing skin and nasolabial folds. PDO threads are made of dissolvable material, similar to surgical stitches. As the thread dissolves in the skin, it creates new collagen in its place. This augments the skin quality and volume, thereby softening the appearance of nasolabial folds. The impressive skin-tightening results of this treatment are natural and long-lasting.
Ageing skin with significant laxity
AccuTite™ offers a safe and effective solution to lift and tighten loose skin whilst also reducing areas of unwanted fat. Common treatment areas include brow-lift, facial folds and wrinkles, bra-strap fat and knee fat. The FDA-approved devices utilise radiofrequency energy delivered via a thin cannula to heat the tissue to a specific temperature. This heat energy causes contraction of fat and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to lift and tighten the skin. Using accurate temperature and energy sensing, we are able to monitor the treatment and ensure that we consistently deliver excellent results.
