WANT BEAUTIFUL HAIR ? TRY MESOTHERAPY

Do you feel like your hair has become dull and shineless? Do you spend countless hours searching for the miracle product that will restore your hair’s lost beauty?

Then try mesotherapy for hair beautification! The benefits of Mesotherapy for hair include the restoration of your hair’s health and shine, and can even aid with hair loss problems, such as Alopecia.

How does Mesotherapy work? Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that consists of microinjections in your target tissues, to stimulate the mesoderm. This relieves a wide variety of symptoms and conditions of the hair.

Mesotherapy brings around the hair follicle a broad range of vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids and co-enzymes so that the hair follicle can grow and survive through correct blood circulation and the excess of DHT (Dyhydrotestosterone) is neutralised.
This treatment also stimulates natural hair growth, with chances of good results for patients being higher than 90%. As hair loss is provoked by hormone imbalances, lack of nutrients and bad blood circulation, mesotherapy is able to restore the essential nutrients that the hair follicles need.

At theLondonFacialCare, I use the U225 Mesogun. That allows the rapid replacement of plasma into the scalp, making it a painless procedure with very minimal discomfort. How long does mesotherapy take to work? It depends with every patient but results can be noticed after the second session. Patients usually resume their daily activities right after injection, making it a simple routine they can adopt in their lives.

CAN ALOPECIA BE CURED ?

Alopecia is a hair loss condition, and is a terminology that refers to different forms of hair loss, both scarring and non-scarring ones.

Alopecia is usually caused by differing factors. These range from physical and emotional stress, imbalance of nutrients and vitamin deficiencies as well as hormone imbalances. It can also be due to hereditary factors, when expressed in many male pattern baldness.

However, here at TheLondonFacialCare, we are able to treat non-scaring alopecia as well as prevent it. Often referred to as Alopecia Areata, this condition is reversible with the right aesthetic treatments.

I am able to treat localised areas of hair loss (patches) that still have the hair follicle bulb intact, by using Plasma Therapy (PRP). This treatment has shown that up to 70% of patients do experience extra hair growth from active follicles.

But what is so special about the PRP technique? Well, growth factor molecules associated with platelets include the promotion of growth, collagen differentiation and even specialised formation of the blood vessel.

Side effects are also very minimal. With minimum discomfort during the procedure, our patients experience a noticeable reduction in hair loss. Fine miniaturised hair starts to thicken and this is usually noticeable by three months since the first application. So patients find their hair easier to manage, thicker and in better condition. Patients are highly satisfied with the results and continue to have maintenance treatments every six months.

So why not consider PRP with us for a hair regrowth treatment? It is a safe and effective treatment for hair thinning and we are sure you won’t be disappointed!

DOES PRP WORK FOR HAIR LOSS ?

Does PRP work for hair loss? Hair loss therapy and hair loss treatments are one of the most sought for treatments on the market, often misleading patients who really want to fix hair loss problems.

Patients tend to be disillusioned with hair growth treatments, as they have usually attempted some which haven’t worked or think that hereditary conditions determine the outcome of any possible treatment.

However, PRP treatment has proved to be effective on natural hair growth at surprising levels. PRP is used as hair loss prevention as well as hair loss treatment. But is it enough to solve the problem on its own?

Profhilo is one of the newest anti-ageing techniques developed in Italy in 2015. it has really boomed the aesthetic industry! It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel.it treats skin laxity through skin bio-remodelling.

A great alternative to dermal fillers. It combats tired looking skin and the loss of facial volume by stimulating four different types of collagen and elastin. With a higher degree of spreadability, it doesn’t produce lumps. Profhilo is capable of releasing the hyaluronic acid at a slower pace.

PROFHILO OR DERMAL FILLERS ?

Profhilo or Dermal fillers ?

As we age, our skin is confronted to a lessened production of collagen and elastin. Our skin become thinner and less elastic.

Until recently, dermal fillers have been the dominant anti-ageing and non-surgical product on the market to deal with those issues. Now, new options in the industry, such as Profhilo, can easily create confusion at what is the right treatment for our desired results!

So, Profhilo or Dermal fillers ? Both dermal fillers and Profhilo are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). Dermal fillers are usually bio- degradable liquid gels that contain anaesthetics to ensure a less painful procedure. Profhilo is made of a pure HA technology and is not targeted at volumising the face like dermal fillers.

Profhilo acts as a skin booster. Profhilo provides hydration, production of collagen and elastin by bio- remodelling the skin.

Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo doesn’t need anaesthetics. The application of this product consists of only 5 injection sites to be carried. it makes its application easier and less painful.

Profhilo is easily spreadable. it adapts easily to the structure of your face without producing lumps. Profhilo can equally be used as a preventive measure to avoid wrinkles and lines, as well as a solution to skin laxity problems on older patients.

However, dermal fillers still remain one of the best treatments at targeting specific areas and concerns of the patient. These include areas like nasolabial folds, the tear trough area and the chin area.

Dermal fillers are also one of the best options to target concerns of volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face area, whilst Profhilo is a great option to maintain a balanced look, with unsurpassable skin health.

All cases are different. A full assessment of the patient is required. In many cases, the combination of different anti-ageing treatments will provide the best result possible, remodelling the face without inflated the face by using too much fillers. Profhilo is the perfect answer to be combined with fillers !

TOP ANTI-AGEING TIPS FOR SKIN

Looking for some anti-ageing tips ?

As we get older, we tend to cross paths with ageing signs that are more simple to prevent and solve than we think!

The little things matter, when it comes to keeping a healthy and radiant skin, but we don’t know many of what they entail!

This is why i want to let you in on the secret tips to skin anti-agers!

One of the worst causes of an ageing skin is sun exposure. UV exposure damages your levels of elastin and collagen at unprecedented levels, causing your skin to droop and to form wrinkles. The best advice out there is to use your sunblock every day, with an SPF protection of at least 30. This can be used in combination with makeup bases and moisturisers that also include UV protection. Lastly, it is best to avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., which is when Mr. Sun works at its full potential!

Another great anti-ageing tip includes the great advantages of using a topical cream that contains retinoid and AHA (alpha hydroxyl) as part of your skin care regimen. Retinoid, combined with an anti-inflammatory agent and an anti-oxidant will smoothen your skin for a healthier appearance.

I highly recommend the use of the ZO Skin Health products, with results showing within 2 months. However, make sure to do your homework and gradually introduce them to your skin regimen as there is a time of adaptation, and each case is different. If you pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid retinoid.

Lastly but not least, time is the essential key in finding the right skin regimen for you. Money is not necessarily the key to achieving the perfect skin care treatment!

Including a routine for both the day and evening is essential to prevent ageing of the skin. Essentially, sunscreen during the day is a must! In the evenings, it is important to remove all your makeup and use a cleanser before the application of retinoid and then a moisturiser. No exceptions should be made after long night outs, as that could lead to outbreaks and deterioration of your skin’s regenerative process. Also, it is a good idea to try peels and exfoliation once a month. It works for most and by being a deeper process, it stimulates collagen growth and skin regeneration, Obagi Peel radiance is my recommendation .

Hope you’ve enjoyed my anti-ageing tips ! And why not book a consultation to complement your skin care regimen with a treatment? My assistants will be more than happy to book you an appointment with me!

WHAT ARE MARIONETTE LINES ?

Marrionette lines run from the corners of the mouth, in most cases making the person look sad. So, why are they called ‘marionette’ lines? This is because they look like the lines that run along the face of a marionette. Symptoms of marionette line are dryness of the skin, loss in elasticity and firmness of the skin.

WHAT BEST FOR MARIONETTE LINES ? BOTOX OR FILLERS ? 

Once marionette lines begin to deepen, your face begins to appear heavier, with a saddened expression. The cause of marionette lines is the loss of soft tissue and structural support beneath the skin.

Whilst they have the tendency to make the skin sag, a solution to this problem can easily be applied! Since it is merely a problem regarding a loss of volume, the recommended treatment is dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Teosyal.

Alongside dermal fillers, I often recommend Botox into the muscles that are pulling down the corner of the mouth. Although Botox will not do the job on its own, it is able to help the corners of the mouth take a more horizontal position.

WHERE TO INJECT  FILLERS TO SOLVE MARIONETTES LINES  ?

My approach for marionette lines differs according to the ageing stage involved.

My preference is to use fillers first: Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production, and attract moisture to the treatment area. This fills in the wrinkles and folds while improving skin texture and flexibility. They work by stiffening the upper part of the lip and adding bulk to the bottom corner to turn it upside down.

They are temporary but usually last around 6-9 months in that area, sometimes longer.

When a patient is young and their chin is fresh, I inject the filler using the MD codes Lp6 to inject deeply on the corner of the mouth to turn it from a downwards position to up.

It can be consolidated, if necessary, with an injection of Botox on the DAO (depressor anguli oris muscle). This is because when this muscle is strong, it has the tendency to bring the mouth down.

The risk of this method is that it can affect the smile in some people.  This is temporary and would require re-injection about every 3 months.

When the patient is a little older and starts to show signs of skin laxity and loss in definition of the lower Jaw, working on the cheeks first will uplift both the corner of the mouth as well as contribute to eliminate the sagging cheek.

This will bring a more natural result than just injecting in the corner of the mouth.

For much older patients with real sagging cheeks, threads combined with fillers is the best option. We need to be cautious not to overfill the cheeks with fillers. We want to achieve elegance. If we inflate the cheeks too much, the face will look too heavy!

There is not one way to consider solving marionette lines, it is the reason why a careful analysis of the face is necessary prior to inject to make sure the treatment plan decided is appropriate, to maintain a perfect balance for the entire face.

PDO THREADS FOR MARIONETTES LINES

Thread lifts are perfect alternatives for surgical face lifts. They are practically non-invasive and cheaper. Thread lifts for marionette lines are perfect and specifically target the jaw area.

The dissolvable sutures are injected under the skin, and once they dissolve they allow collagen to grow in their place, allowing you to see long lasting effects.

Dermica threads polydioxanone (PDO) are made from the same material as dissolvable stitches.

The threads are injected under the skin and give a structural template for the collagen to grow, helping to reduce the effects of lines and wrinkles on the face.

The threads should not be visible through the skin and is used in lower areas of the face for problems such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds and laugh lines.

So, if you are wondering if this is the right treatment for you, what are you waiting for? Please call the practice. My assistants will be more than happy to help you book an appointment with me!

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?
