Non-invasive Cosmetic Treatments for the Face
Over time, skin starts to age; however, both surgical and non-surgical procedures can counteract and reduce visible signs of ageing. After a targeted medical-cosmetic consultation, fine lines and wrinkles, visibly dilated pores, age spots and pigmentation, thread veins, face and neck skin laxity, acne scars, and other skin concerns can be treated with wide range of modern aesthetic techniques tailored to match patient goals.
Below, we address some of the main issues regarding non-surgical facial rejuvenation which may arise during a consultation.
There are a number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments designed to target mild skin laxity of the face and neck. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, botulinum toxin type A (Botox) and non-surgical facelifts provide outstanding results if they are administered expertly, and the treatment plan respects individual patient requirements.
Non-invasive aesthetic techniques, predominantly wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers with Botox and hyaluronic acid, are effective treatments for dynamic expression lines. Fine lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead lines and the nasolabial folds (smile lines) benefit considerably from these treatments. Non-surgical options achieve a harmonious, natural-looking result when administered by licensed professionals with a keen eye for aesthetic detail.
After an extensive evaluation, a range of minimally invasive treatments can be used to correct uneven pigmentation. Not all pigmentation concerns originate in the same way; and hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage (clinically known as Melasma) requires a separate set of treatments, ranging from laser treatments, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to chemical peels and medical-grade skin-lightening masks such as Dermamelan.
There are a variety of treatments available to rejuvenate lips: hyaluronic acid dermal filler is the most popular choice. They are used to create a more youthful appearance, enhance lip size, and contour the lip area, wherever possible, to create a naturally harmonious look.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation options can also be used for the cheeks and the area surrounding the eyes. These treatments restore a more youthful appearance, lift and augment the cheeks, and reduce wrinkles by softening the features to achieve a subtle, balanced effect. Once again, injectables and dermal fillers such as Botox and hyaluronic acid, are the most popular choices for effective treatment. However, medical-grade facial peels, micro-needling, and bio-rejuvenation and bio-stimulation treatments may also be used to slow the ageing process and reduce visible signs of ageing.
Minimally invasive procedures can rejuvenate, smooth, lift, shape, soften, and lighten skin on the forehead. These treatments can increase the thickness of thinning brows, and modify the shape and position. Botox, hyaluronic acid filler, non-surgical facelifts, chemical peels and skin lightening masks are the most popular and most requested options available.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty can correct minor imperfections of the nose, using hyaluronic acid fillers and in some cases Botox. Facial peels, laser resurfacing treatments, and Intense Pulsed Light to reduce uneven pigmentation and broken capillaries can also treat and improve the look of skin in this area.
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures can target the chin area, using hyaluronic acid filler to enhance the appearance and projection. Whereas, chemical peels, laser treatments and Intense Pulsed Light help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and broken capillaries.
The appearance of acne scars can be vastly improved with various techniques according to individual patient requirements and the nature of scarring. Micro-injections of hyaluronic acid, chemical peels, laser treatments, micro-needling, and a healthy ‘dose’ of patience on behalf of the patient, provide the most satisfactory outcome in terms of results.
Treatment of male and female pattern hair loss focuses on the only two FDA-approved products proven effective at reducing hair loss and stimulating new growth: Minoxidil 5%, and Finasteride for androgenetic alopecia in males.
There is a growing interest, practice and research regarding Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP): an aesthetic-medical treatment, using a small sample of the patient’s own blood, which is processed, and injected into the scalp to exploit the natural healing properties and growth factors of platelets.
There are also high hopes for Latanoprost: a ‘new’ treatment currently being experimented for hair loss. Latanoprost is a prostaglandin analogue treatment, prescribed only as a galenic formulation (specially prepared by the pharmacist.) It produces promising results in stimulating hair regrowth, increased strand diameter, and possibly in the repigmentation of hair.
