You can’t go back in time but your skin can!

Inevitably, our skin quality deteriorates over time. Our ways, our habits,
our genes and even the weather are all factors that influence the state
of our skin. For some the impact is major, for others it’s less so, but for
all of us the change is (or will be) apparent.

Why do wrinkles occur?

Your skin is made up of two basic layers known as the epidermis (or outer most layer) and the dermis. The epidermis’ primary function is to protect the body from the environment and to prevent moisture loss. The dermis is made up of a network of collagen and elastin fibres that provide structure and support to the skin. Fat cells and other molecules such as  hyaluronic acid provide further support to the skin and add facial volume, giving us a youthful appearance.

Types of Wrinkle

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are closely linked with the action of our facial muscles. They develop because each time we make a facial muscle movement to smile, laugh or frown our skin creases in the same way. After making the same expressions over and over again, for many years, the skin remembers these crease lines, creating wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles often occur as wrinkles or lines between eyebrows, an area known as the glabella. Typically, dynamic wrinkles found in the glabella region can be treated with a botulinum toxin treatment which relaxes the muscle for a period of months smoothing away the wrinkle.

Dynamic wrinkles that appear around the eyes (known as ‘crows feet’) can be treated with Emervel® Touch, which is specifically designed to lift superficial lines.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are not linked to facial muscle movement but the loss of volume within the skin. The majority of static facial wrinkles and folds are within the dermis where over time facial volume is lost as the collagen and elastin fibres, fat cells and hyaluronic acid break down, and the rate at which it is replaced by the body slows. The visible sign of this is skin ageing and the appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds, and facial volume loss. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Emervel can assist by restoring and replacing lost volume where it is needed most – within the dermal layer of the skin.

The rate at which your skin ages can be accelerated by a number of lifestyle factors, and there are a number of basic lifestyle tips we can take into consideration to help delay the signs of ageing. Take a look at our tips on what you can do to help delay signs of ageing.

Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid in the skin

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in most living organisms. It plays an important part in the human skin, providing it with elasticity, volume and the ability to transfer nutrients between cells. As we age our body produces less hyaluronic acid contributing to a loss of facial volume and the formation of lines, static wrinkles and folds. This volume loss can be replaced with dermal fillers (such as the Emerval ®,Restylane and Teosyal ranges), which are specifically designed to work at the different layers of the skin and replace or restore facial volume.

We like to select the best product for each individuals needs and desired results.

In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in approximately 24 hours. The hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is modified to ensure a longer lasting result. The scientifically advanced technology provides a range of products to provide you with the optimal treatment outcome.

If you’re considering using Dermal Fillers to regain fullness or volume in the cheeks, lips, or around your face, your most important consideration should always be safety, the expertise of your practitioner and the products being used.

Safety of Dermal Fillers

The Problem

Some areas of the face can lack the volume or fullness we desire. As skin ages it loses its elasticity and becomes less supple resulting in lips losing their fullness, lines appearing around the mouth and nose area, and cheeks looking sunken and hollow. Others of us can find ourselves unhappy with the general volume in certain areas of our face, but don’t necessarily like the idea of a surgical procedure.

The Treatment

Dermal fillers, made from Hyaluronic Acid, are the most popular volume enhancing treatments and are often used to reduce facial lines and to restore plumpness to the lips and cheeks, redifining the shape of your face. Producing safe, long-lasting and natural looking results, dermal fillers are increasingly popular. The treatment is extremely quick and results are instant. There are many fillers on the market that are substandard. Sedgemead House Clinic uses only the highest quality brand of temporary fillers, including Galderma, Teosyal and Restylane which are renowned for their superior results.

More importantly, Ken is a qualified and certified dental surgeon and facial practitioner with over 12 years experience of facial aesthetics.

The Results

Lines and wrinkles are smoothed out and the skin appears plumper and younger. Areas lacking in volume and shape now have more definition, with a fuller appearance.

Downtime

None. You can go back to work immediately after your treatment although you may experience some redness or swelling.

Our ambition has always been to perfect the most natural looking results and to help you look and feel your very best.

Our most important consideration is YOU – your safety and your results.
