TREATMENT OPTIONS AND COMMON QUESTIONS TO DOCTOR
Nasolabial folds long lasting improvement?
BEST FOR: aging nasolabial folds
COST: from $500
DOWNTIME: few days
Fibrisis tethers down the skin, creating difference levels in nasolabial area.
BEST FOR:lost volume with wrinkles of lips
COST: from $250
Lips deflate and drooping towards inside of the mouth as we age. Corners of the mouth drooping down also. General impression of sad, tired look is a usual concern of the aging patients. Not bigger, but rather more fresh and natural appearance is asked.
Even minor correction in the central part of the face provides a great result with more fresh look, less wrinkles and lift of lips and corners of the mouth. Small amount of filler needed for natural results.
Ideal combination with peel to smoothen wrinkles and rejuvenate skin around lips.
wrinkles around eyes with excess skin?
BEST FOR: too much skin of eyelids
COST: from $400
DOWNTIME: 1-3 days, but some swelling up to 2 weeks
Excess skin of eyelids, folded into wrinkles and heavy eyelids can be treated with muscle relaxant, but only on a safe 2 cm distance from the eye to ensure no diffusion to the vision muscles.
Close to eyes may be used plasma – energy with minimal or no skin destruction, but tightening under the skin and reduced amount of skin. Some effect within 3 days, but maximum in 6 weeks, when collagen builds up.
For more advanced cases with severe excess of eyelid skin – blepharoplasty, which is a surgical removal of the skin.
PDO thread lift for drooping face?
BEST FOR: excess of skin hanging, minimal fat
COST: from $800
DOWNTIME: 2-5 days or none
Aging bone loss, gravity and lack of elasticity may cause loose excessive skin under chin and jawlines. If excess fat is also an issue, fat dissolving injections remove fat, and then skin is being strengthen by threads. Under local anesthetic, the procedure is usually well tolerated. Swelling and bruising possible.
Face lift without downtime?
BEST FOR: lost volume in a lifting points
DOWNTIME: none or bruising (covered by makeup)
Lost bone volume cause drooping of soft tissues. Filler is being injected into the lifting points and places of lost volume (like cheeks lifting point, under eye depression, nasolabial folds around nose, under eyebrow to lift it up and corners or the mouth to lift it). More points are possible, but cosmetic doctor will discuss with you the best and most natural approach.
Skin thinning and dullness?
BEST FOR: dull, tired, thin, dehydrated skin.
COST: from $400
DOWNTIME: none or 3 days, if bruising/minor swelling
Blood supply/microcirculation slows down with age, degradation products are accumulated, hyaluron (natural tissues moisturizer) decreased (we “dry out”as we age) – all these changes form thinner, dull skin with small wrinkles, pigmentation and redness.
Biorevitalisation is a microneedling over lifting dermatomes with depo of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides in the most metabolically active, deep layer of the skin.
We deliver nutrients and healthy environment, and skin is healing itself into better health. Therefore becomes more radiant and hydrated.
Ideally to combine with peels (to peel off dead skin, which inhibits regeneration) and prescription skin care from doctor to lighten pigmentation and rejuvenate the skin.
