New Anti-aging Treatments London
What are the leading causes of aging and what new anti-aging treatments London has to offer?
A combination of factors induces the aging processes of the skin – these include changes in hormone levels, particularly estrogen, as well as a decline in metabolic activity and cell regeneration. UV exposure, smoking, pollution, stress, bad dietary habits, lack of sleep, etc.
There is a variety of new anti-aging treatments London has to offer. Listed below are some of the most effective ones and they are all available at The Face and Body Clinic, 57 Harley Street, London
LIGHT THERAPY – also known as PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY (PDT)
Photodynamic therapy is one of the new anti-aging treatments London utilized to turn back the clock. Unlike invasive surgical procedures or aggressive chemical-based anti-aging treatments, PDT uses low-level light-emitting diodes to stimulate the collagen production of the skin resulting in a more youthful and revitalized face. The Light applicator is placed over the face for 20 mins. This not only stimulates the collagen production of the skin but also dilates the blood vessels, thereby increasing blood circulation and bringing more oxygen to the skin’s surface, resulting in a vibrant, youthful glow.
It takes between 6 and 8 treatments to see a sustainable result with this new anti-aging treatment and the procedures are very relaxing and pain-free.
No aftercare is required and the treatment works on all skin types.
TRIPOLLAR RADIO FREQUENCY
Tripollar technology, another new anti-aging treatment in London painlessly delivers focused Radio Frequency energy to the skin. This energy is offered in 3 (or more) electrodes being massaged over the treatment area. Radiofrequency energy uses the tissue’s resistance within the various layers of the skin to transform the RF energy given to the skin into thermal energy causing the skin to heat up, thus causing a contraction of collagen fibers and leading to an immediate tightening effect. Simultaneously, an acceleration of the metabolism of the fibroblasts regenerates collagen, resulting in long-term skin tightening without surgery or downtime.
Tripollar RF treatments effectively:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Firm and Rejuvenate the skin
- Contour the facial skin
- Can work on any skin type
Results are visible after the first treatment but generally, 6 – 8 treatments are recommended at weekly intervals.
The latest new anti-aging treatment London has to offer is called VoluDerm. This hybrid energy technology is a breakthrough concept that combines 2 electrical energies to create a dual effect in both the epidermis and dermis to deliver dermal volumizing with virtually no pain or downtime while sustaining viable and receptive cells to receive skin rejuvenating nutrients following treatment.
- Stimulation of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin
- Dermal Volume
- Reduces the signs of aging and regenerates the skin
- Long lasting natural-looking results
PDO THREAD LIFTS
Threadlifts are new anti-aging treatments in London. A minimally invasive procedure using dissolvable PDO threads which are broken down naturally by the body over a period of time. The threads are inserted into the face via very fine needles and the practitioner will create a corset-like structure underneath the skin. A lifted appearance can be seen immediately after treatment and the results will improve in the following weeks as the PDO stimulates collagen production. The overall texture of the skin improves becoming tighter and firmer while fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. The effect of the treatment can last between 12 and 18 months.
There is a little downtime as swelling and bruising can occur but it varies from patient to patient.
WRINKLE INJECTIONS AND DERMAL FILLERS
These are the most popular new anti-aging treatments in London and all over the world. These are used on the face to combat lines on the forehead, and around the eyes, as well as add volume to the cheeks, nasolabial lines, and around the mouth.
Advanced injection techniques can reduce the frequency of maintenance treatments as well as reduce the amount of product required in touch-ups.
The new mantra is: Less is More
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENT
Also known as THE VAMPIRE FACIAL involves injecting the patient’s own platelets for the treatment of wrinkles. It is less invasive than surgery, takes about 20 mins of treatment time and results can last up to 12 months. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate the cells in our body. This cutting-edge rejuvenation is a quick procedure and can be combined with dermal fillers for optimal results.
It is a relatively painless treatment and requires no aftercare or downtime. There may be mild swelling or redness or bruising which fades quite quickly.
