What is aging?
Skin aging is a stretching of the skin accompanied by very significant thinning. The face loses its elasticity, becoming loose and saggy, the skin is wrinkled, crumpled like paper.
Multiple causes, multiple solutions
Assessing the skin, the doctor will be able to decide on the best tailor-made program to carry out. The goal is to restore thickness, elasticity and radiance to the skin.
The doctor can turn to:
To deeply lift the fatty layers and firm the skin in absolute respect for the integrity of the epidermis, focused ultrasounds work wonders. In-depth action on a specific point through heating creates subsequent coagulation. And this, without altering the surface skin. The deep clotting points obtained will cause them to retract and tighten the subcutaneous tissues over approximately 3 months.
Stimulated by this energy, a synthesis of collagen is generated in the skin, creating, within three weeks, a targeted lifting effect.
The Ultralift lifting treatment (Ultherapy, Ulthera type focused ultrasound) concentrates the energy of ultrasound on depths varying between 1.5 mm, 3 mm and 4.5 mm, to act at the same depth as that generally targeted during a surgical lifting (4.5mm).
Focused ultrasound is commonly used for the face and any other area to be firmed, such as the neck or cleavage.
Deeper applications ranging from 8 to 13 mm under the skin make it possible to target the fatty layers such as the belly, to remove fat from thickened skin (double chin, arms, buccal fat pads, belly …).
A gentle technique involving heating the skin evenly and in depth, up to 43 ° C. This is the temperature where fibroblasts, actual collagen and elastin manufacturers, get to work and produce the ingredients that are the treasures of youth! In 30 minutes, the skin is already smoothed, plumped and the effects of other treatments are maximized.
Radiofrequency is particularly indicated to bring a specific radiance burst for a special occasion. It can also be used in a deeper and more intense way, with fractional radiofrequency on needles, to treat the sagging skin of the body and the neck, but also active acne and its scars.
Behind the name, Topping is an innovative technique specific to our clinic. It involves in injecting beneath the skin a rejuvenating preparation containing of PRP, collagen inducers and hyaluronic acid (Profhilo, Revive Skin Booster). Skin is therefore made to fill crevices.
PRP from the plasma in your blood is a liquid rich in platelets and natural growth factors. How does it work? By stimulating fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin and by activating tissue vascularization, promoting the supply of nutrients and stem cells so that the skin can be regenerated.
Collagen inducers are fully absorbable molecules, most often calcium or PCL, which will stimulate fibroblasts, actual manufacturers of collagen and elastin. The result is a mesh that will naturally redensify, firm and smooth the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible, hydrating, and fully absorbable gel. This natural treatment is used to fill deep and superficial wrinkles, but also to structure or lift the volumes of the cheekbones, chin, forehead, lips, hands, or redesign the bridge of a nose.
Mesolift consists in regularly injecting into the epidermis and the dermis a mix of hyaluronic acid, vitamins and multiple amino acids, which will quickly repair and improve the appearance of the skin, which will appear remarkably younger and more hydrated. This mixture is made to measure, according to the needs of your skin.
The injection is carried out with a micro-needle and an air pistol which sends a dose of this vitamin complex through a very fine needle. This dose is perfectly calculated and evenly distributed, as is the depth of the jab, which is adjusted by the doctor for optimal results. The automatic pistol allows for 100 times more injections than manual mesotherapy.
The injection itself is a crucial part of the procedure: it is a small attack on the skin which will induce a repair process and stimulate the production of collagen.
In our Paris and London clinics, we generally recommend a mesotherapy session every 2 months.
It’s a real beauty routine and the benchmark treatment for a deep and effective treatment, the skin subsequently developing continuous collagen and elastin.
Mesotherapy can be performed on other areas of the body such as the neck, cleavage or even the hands to improve the overall appearance of the skin and prevent aging.
A Skin Restore session lasts 45 minutes.
It begins with a careful diagnostic examination of the skin and the areas to be treated by the doctor. Once the diagnosis has been established, the treatment defined and consent given, the first stage of treatment can begin according to the program established.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant evenly applies a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid, to soothe the treated skin.
The patient can immediately resume the normal course of their day.
Some redness or slight bruising may appear, easily concealed with a little tinted cream.
This treatment is not only reserved for the face and can be applied to the entire body to restore damaged skin areas. During a Body Firm session, for example.
Several sessions are sometimes necessary to obtain the desired result. The treatment will be renewed according to the evolution of the skin over the following month. The price of a Skin Restore treatment is from £500 for just Radiofrequency and Mesolift.
