Teosyal Redensity II is one of the safest and most effective dermal fillers products  designed to treat the periorbital area and tear troughs.

It consists of a lightweight gel and requires a small amount of pressure for it to enter the tissue below the skin. It had been reformed to deal with the gentle skin in the eye circle area helping to prevent bruising.

Teosyal Redensity II also is not as hydrophilic as other HA gels, resulting in little to no swelling after the injection.

TEAR TROUGH : CANNULA VERSUS NEEDLE TO INJECT THIS AREA

The tear trough is usually referred as the dark shadow that lays beneath your eyes. An increasingly popular area that is treated with anti-ageing treatments, patients usually worry that injecting will cause pain and bruising.

However, here at TheLondonFacialCare, I use a cannula to inject the eye area rather than a needle. Cannula’s are not sharp like needles, making it the perfect tool to inject this sensitive area of the skin.

By using the cannula, bruising is kept to a minimum, which makes it more convenient, as several of my patients want to resume their work activities and other schedules straight afterwards.

It causes less pain than needles and requires less entry points than needles because they are longer. This provides a safer procedure as there is less risk of perforating a blood vessel.

Furthermore, I use the cannula to inject the tear trough as it is the safest method for injection, minimising your recovery time. However, I also use needles on certain filler treatments in there areas as they could provide better results in certain cases.

If you wish to find out more about the tear trough procedure, please call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

TEAR TROUGH, HOW TO TREAT THEM CORRECTLY ?

Tear trough, how to treat them correctly ?

When patients come to my practice wanting a solution regarding their tear trough, they usually expect to be injected straight in that area.

However, it is often the case that you can fix the tear trough by focusing on other aspects of the face. This is why we need to understand why the tear trough develops in the first place!

Tear troughs usually develop with ageing. As we get older, we lose facial volume in the surrounding area, and dark circles under the eyes are deepened because of the skin laxity. It can also occur due to our lifestyle, where excessive exposure to the sun and smoking causes the skin to lax prematurely.

As a result, our cheeks drift downwards and this accentuates our naso-labial folds. By focusing on fixing these areas affected by the sagging tendency of our skin, the tear trough can be better addressed by treating these areas.

Further treatments to support the periorbital area, the crows feet area or the submalar area should be considered first, in order to ensure a more natural and sustained look!

Here at TheLondonFacialCare, I make sure that my patients undergo a full facial assessment with pictures before they decide to inject or opt for treatment. This way, they can fully understand how to achieve a beautiful and natural result.

By working on the foundations of the face first, we can then proceed by contouring the face and make it more refined. And this is why it is the best way to treat the tear trough!

Don’t wait to find out how this technique could be beneficial to you. Call the practice, my assistant will be delighted to answer to the questions you may have and to book an appointment with me!

So what are PDO threads, you ask?

PDO threads are one of the 21st century anti-ageing miracle techniques, which tighten your skin and improve the minor wrinkles you picked up in the process of ageing!

Monofilament PDO threads are like a scaffold to the face, and it thus produces natural collagen in your skin, which makes it look younger, brighter and more elastic.

Barbed PDO threads (COG), on the other hand, are used to fix sagging areas of the skin and can be used in conjunction with monofilament PDO threads.

Many use PDO threads to achieve a lifting effect but that is not always possible when the skin has caused to sag too much.

Do you want to find out more about PDO threads and whether it is right for you?

SKIN REJUVENATION WITH POLYDIOXANONE THREADS (PDO)

PDO threads have been around for a while, but the trend has really picked up in recent years due to the fact that practitioners have perfected the way to use them and apply them on patients according to their own, specific needs.

PDO threads are a great skin rejuvenation option, as there are almost never allergic reactions and long term complications after its use. The effects of the procedure last up to 8 months, before it is replaced with fibrosis.

There are many things we can solve with PDO threads. Treatments range from treating wrinkles, tightening the skin, contouring our face or even reducing a double chin, among many others. However, patients always have higher expectations of PDO threads, and they should understand that it is not a replacement for a real surgical lift. But an amazing alternative to be used when opting for non-surgical treatments.

But have you ever wondered how PDO threads really work and which is the best treatment for you?

THE BEST LIP FILLER TREATMENT IN LONDON TO ACHIEVE VOLUPTUOUS AND NATURAL LIPS!

Our lips are the most sensual and attractive part of our bodies, making our face look irresistibly good if they are defined and pronounced in a natural manner!

The biggest challenge, however, is to achieve natural lips after lip augmentation. After the trend had picked up, lip augmentation is generally a fine line between fake and natural.

One can tell the difference between fake and natural when the upper lip is fuller than the lower lip. The lower lip should always be fuller than the upper, otherwise you might have a permanent pout that screams ‘fake’ from miles away!

CANNULA NEEDLES. ARE THEY BETTER TO USE FOR LIP FILLERS ?

Cannula needles. Are they better to use for lip fillers ?

How many of us has had a lip augmentation and felt that the pain and bruising was not worth all the effort? With the traditional lip augmentation techniques, it is often the case that patients are confronted to an increased risk of bruising and trauma, making the experience unbearable!

Here at TheLondonFacialCare, i use Microcannulas for over 95% of  facial injections, making the process smoother and much more comfortable than the traditional way.

Apart from facial treatments that include cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and lips, i also use the Microcannula to inject your beautiful lips!

Not only does this treatment rejuvenate your face and body, it is delivered with the minimum discomfort and bruising possible. My patients are able to resume their activities straight after application, some going out for drinks or even going back to work straight after!

When my patients ask me why microcanulas are a better injection technique for the lips, I explain that the process is smoother since you fill the upper and lower lip by poking a needle on each side, which pushes the vessels out of the way! This happens because microcannulas have round tips, which minimise bruising and discomfort during penetration!

AZZALURE VERSUS BOTOX , WHICH IS BETTER  ?

Azzalure versus Botox ?

You want to have Botox done but you’re confused and overwhelmed with the different names and options on the market?

The existing products on the market are Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. It is the same product with different names in different countries. But the drugs are the same

There is always an overlap in terms of branding these products, meaning that Dysport can be labelled as Azzalure in different countries, even though they are the same product.

Preference to each product defers from practitioner to practitioner, but here at The London Facial Care, I mainly prefer the use of Azzalure (or Dysport). More Dysport units are needed than Botox when injecting, but the end results should be the same.

HOW BOTOX PREVENT AND SMOOTH EXISTING WRINKLES ?

Facial wrinkles appear as the result of continuous contractions of the face muscles, which in time results in an old appearance, filled with folds in the skin as well as a lack of smoothness in your look.

These facial wrinkles can appear in a range of areas and in a range of situations. You can produce sleep lines in your sleep, you can also develop facial wrinkles by frowning a lot, which will be seen in your forehead or frown lines as well as your crow’s feet.

Luckily, Botox is an amazing product that can help prevent the formation of facial wrinkles in these areas by neutralising the muscle’s repeated contractions, avoiding your skin to fold and in turn, keeping it smooth and looking young. Botox will in the contrary useless for sleeping wrinkles and use of fillers will be necessary instead.

This is why , in certain cases, I advise patients to use Botox in their 20’s as a preventive measure to push back the process of ageing so that they are able to look younger for longer!

DO BOTOX AND FILLERS ACTUALLY MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER ?

Nowadays, It is increasingly the case that our younger generation is exposed to beauty standards from magazines and celebrities, that promote the perfect ‘flawless’ look!

As a result, we quickly want the perfect lips, the perfect cheekbones, the perfect brows, the perfect everything!

As a practitioner, I have seen the effects of Botox and fillers used in large amounts at younger ages, and can see that this does not have a ‘natural’ impacted look by the time we are forty.

Careless use of these chemicals can have a different effect on the long term, which is why each case needs to be assessed carefully and slowly, to make sure results are efficient both short term and long term.

Here at The London Facial Care, I encourage my younger patients to adopt a moderate use of botox and fillers as well as the Obagi 360 system, a skincare regimen that helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines at an early stage. Obagi 360 restores moisture to your skin, and restores a refreshing complexion!

PREVENT WRINKLES ON YOUR NECK AND DECOLLETAGE WITH NU-DERM FROM OBAGI

How many of us avoid a plunging neckline because we are uncomfortable with our neck and décolletage? It may come as a surprise, but many of us do this!

This is due to years of bad exposure to chemicals that have given us a crepey neck and décolletage. Sun exposure, smoking and UV damage are some of the causes, followed by a lack of care of the area in our youth.

Often enough, you see yourself spending endless amounts of money on expensive neck and décolletage creams and serums, promised by ads and commercials to be the miracle you are waiting for. Most of us know that this does not work.

However, you should not give up because here at The London Facial Care, we have uncovered different techniques and products that have been tested and proved to work, restoring beautiful necklines and the perfect décolletage treatment.

Anti-ageing techniques have been developed for this area of the body, so that there is no need to resort to surgical intervention! And that with careful application of sunblock and exfoliating on a regular basis will take you a long way!

WILL BOTOX WILL GET RID OF YOUR NECK BANDS ?

So you want to get rid of your neck bands, but does Botox help neck bands?

First, we need to understand why our neck bands appear in the first place. The answer is, we usually lose fat as we grow older. This can result in issues such as sunken eyes or deepened cheekbones as we have seen in previous editions.

However, it is more specific when it comes to our neck bands. The keyword here is platysma! Platysma is the muscle that covers the front of our necks, which as we grow older, sometimes extends beyond and above the surface of our skin.
