This cutaneous drooping, combined with wasting, induces a progressive loss of the volumes and the texture of the skin. The oval of the face is less well defined. The relaxation thus becomes very visible.
The new generation of supplement products is embodied by a gel combining 2 components: the filling effect of hyaluronic acid and a collagen-inducing property. The aim? To lift energize and improve the quality of the skin.
The 2 main collagen inducers used here are calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) like Radiesse® or PCL (polycaprolactone) gels like Ellanse®.
They are made up of mineral microspheres that will fill in wrinkles and areas that have become hollow over time. The Calcium or PCL molecules will stimulate the fibroblasts, actual manufacturers of collagen and elastin, until the creation of a mesh that will naturally redensify, firm and tone the skin. These natural products are completely absorbable and completely assimilated by the skin in a few months.
With a tailor-made dilution of the product, the skin of all areas of the body can be improved (except the mouth).
On the face, treatment with collagen inducers can be combined with the injection of hyaluronic acid, PDO wires or even a HIFU ultrasound session. Indeed, following a tailor-made treatment by the doctor, you will be able to obtain a result as satisfactory as a surgical facelift. Without going through an operation requiring considerable time and commitment.
The session lasts on average 30 minutes.
Each session begins with a careful diagnostic examination by the doctor of the characteristics of your skin and face: sagging, wrinkles and areas to be treated. Once the diagnosis is established, the treatment is decided, based an exchange between the doctor and the patient.
With consent given, the medical assistant performs an antiseptic cleansing of the skin and the application of an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment comfortable. Local anaesthesia can be performed according to the techniques used. The aim is to provide comfort, always.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant evenly applies a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid to soothe the treated skin for 5 minutes. A restorative cream is applied with an airbrush. A light make-up, fixed by a protective mist, completes the session and allows the patient to continue the normal course of their day. No hiding away. The show must go on.
Possible side effects such as bruising or slight swelling may appear but are transient (a few days maximum). They are easily camouflaged with a little makeup.
After 3 weeks, the collagen fibers will synthesize and contract.
Result: A visible tightening effect.
The result is visible immediately and continues over the following weeks. The results last on average 9 months.
The price of an injection is £500.
