Wrinkles are creases that form in the skin and result from the collagen loss, skin sagging, repeated movement creasing the skin and compression of the skin during sleep. There are several factors that can accelerate the formation of wrinkles including skin type, sun exposure, smoking and an unhealthy diet. During your consultation, your practitioner will assess the main factors involved in the formation of your wrinkles and will advise on the optimal treatment plan to address this.
Botulinum toxin, commonly known as ‘Botox’, has been used in medical treatments for over 4 decades and was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of wrinkles in 1989. Botulinum toxin is used to treat dynamic wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement e.g. frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It is now one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world and works by temporarily blocking the connection between nerves and muscles. This enables muscles to stay relaxed and the overlying skin to smooth out, thus softening any visible wrinkles.
Biorevitalisation is the injection of light hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants under the skin surface to rehydrate, brighten and smooth the skin. When treating wrinkles, small droplets of biorevitalisation liquid are injected into the skin. These droplets gradually diffuse throughout the upper layers of the skin, plumping the creases, delivering nutrients to the cells and improving skin microcirculation. For optimal results, we recommend a course of 2-4 treatments (1 per month).
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, 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.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is the injection of your own blood plasma, that is rich in platelets and fortified with vitamins and nutrients, into the skin. The injection of PRP stimulates skin repair, therefore tightening and plumping the skin. PRP can be combined with ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleic acids, powerful antioxidants such as glutathione and hyaluronic acid.
Deep wrinkles can be treated using dermal fillers. Dermal filler is a term used to describe a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin in order to plump the area. Although there are many different types of fillers, the most popular are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, which are naturally produced. Dermal fillers can have different structures and consistencies that make them more suitable for treatment of different areas. By injecting dermal filler into wrinkles, we can re-build volume that has been lost and achieve a natural smoothness of the skin.
CO2 laser skin rejuvenation is a powerful treatment that can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce laxity and improve skin thickness. The laser targets the superficial and deep layers of the skin to create tiny wounds and stimulate a wound-healing response. As the skin heals, it creates new collagen, elastin and skin hydrators, resulting in smoother, tighter and plumper skin. We normally recommend a course of treatments to address fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus 8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency heat energy to smooth and firm the skin. As the small needles enter the skin, the tips of the needles heat up with radiofrequency energy. This sends controlled heat energy into the upper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production, thus tightening, firming and smoothing the skin over several months after the treatment. Morpheus 8 is safe for any skin type and can be used alongside other treatments such as dermal fillers.
SecretRF is an evolution of microneedling with radiofrequency. This device works by precisely inserting small needles into the skin (at gradations of 0.1mm), creating microchannels, with the subsequent delivery of radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thereby reducing wrinkles. The motor mechanism of the SecretRF is extremely smooth and it’s needles particularly precise and well-insulated, resulting in minimal downtime and being suitable for all skin types.
This dynamic, non-ablative treatment, pairs RF microneedling with an erbium glass laser. The RF microneedles deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin via precise needles, whilst the laser gently delivers powerful beams to the skin in microcolumns, creating bulk heating. This works to effectively target common signs of ageing and skin concerns in any skin type, with almost no downtime and an instant glass-like glow to the skin.
Exosomes are a topical gel applied to skin following microneedling, SecretRF, or CO2 laser treatments. The gel is made from billions of exosomes, micro-vesicles that contain thousands of growth factors, cytokines and nutrients that help to boost collagen, elastin and natural hydration, thereby rejuvenating the face, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Polynucleotides are the building blocks of DNA and RNA – nucleic acids that give the instructions for cell function, regeneration and gene expression. As polynucleotides are broken down in our body, they promote DNA synthesis, increase cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin.
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.
FaceTite™ offers a safe and effective solution to lift and tighten loose skin whilst also reducing areas of unwanted fat. Common treatment areas include lower face sagging, facial wrinkles and jowls.
