Nowadays, cosmetic surgery centers across the UK offer a range of facial rejuvenation options that deliver remarkable results. But patients are often unsure what these treatments are and how they work. So what facial rejuvenation treatments are available at Sthetix.
A wide range of surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments are available at Sthetix cosmetic surgery center.
Popular surgical Facial rejuvenation treatments include:
Face and neck lift
A combined face and neck lift is done to rejuvenate the appearance of the face, jawline, and neck. This is achieved by tightening the facial skin, and removing excess fat where needed.
There are several techniques that can be used to perform a face and neck lift. The choice will depend on the specific needs of the patient, and their aesthetic goals.
A face and neck lift is done under general anesthesia and takes approximately 3-4 hours. The incisions for surgery are made in the region of the hairline, and around the ear. During the procedure the underlying tissue and muscles are tightened, and any excess skin removed.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is another very common facial rejuvenation procedure performed at Sthetix. Signs of facial aging often first start to show on the eyelids, and eyelid surgery rejuvenates their appearance and turn back the clock.
Depending on the issues that need to be addressed eyelid surgery may be done on either the upper or lower eyelids, or on both. Upper eyelid surgery corrects sagging skin by removing excess skin and fat, and lower eyelid surgery addresses bags and loose skin below the eyelids.
Eyelid surgery is typically done as an outpatient procedure but may sometimes require an overnight stay. Incisions for surgery are made within the natural crease of the eyelids.
Fat Transfer to the face
Facial fat transfer is an effective way to refresh the face, and restore youthful plumpness. The fat used for the procedure is taken from areas of the body that have excess, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Liposuction is done to extract the fat from the donor area. The harvested fat is processed before being injected into the face to smooth wrinkles, and replenish volume.
Fat transfer to the face is typically done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and takes about 1-3 hours.
Popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation options include:
Dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers are injected beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and replenish lost volume. Fillers are an excellent option for people wanting to reduce the first lines and wrinkles on the face.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, are among the most effective options now available. HA occurs naturally in the body, and is a key component in the connective tissue in the skin. HA binds water, so when it is injected into the skin it creates fullness and hydrates the skin.
A numbing cream is applied to the face to minimize any discomfort and then the dermal filler is injected in the areas being targeted. There is no downtime after treatment, so patients are generally able to go back to work the following day.
Whereas dermal fillers are ideal for static wrinkles, botox cosmetic is recommended for dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement. These expression lines become deeper with age as the skin loses collagen, and is no longer able to easily bounce back into shape.
Botox cosmetic relaxes the muscles, and as a result, the wrinkles soften and become less noticeable. Botox is injected into the muscle and blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. The results of botox generally last 3-4 months.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for facial rejuvenation
PRP is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces wrinkles using growth factors from the patient’s blood. The blood for the procedure is drawn and then processed to isolate the platelet rich serum. PRP is high in growth factors, and when injected into the affected areas it plumps wrinkles and adds volume to hollow areas. PRP therapy also improves skin tone.
