Wrinkle Reduction by Harley Street Dermal
The face is typically the first place where signs of ageing appear. Even before the first strands of grey appear, wrinkles establish themselves at the corners of our eyes, in our cheeks and in the frown and forehead areas. If left untreated, fine lines can develop into deep folds that become the overarching feature of the face, and by that time getting rid of them typically calls for drastic measures. We provide wrinkle reduction treatments in Harley Street, London that lets you stay ahead of wrinkles so that they never compromise the natural beauty of your face.
Proven Wrinkle Reduction in Harley Street, London
At Harley Street Dermal we provide expert wrinkle reduction treatment using the most popular, effective and well-known treatment: botulinum toxin A or “Botox”. Botox was known as far back as the 1970s when it was employed to treat a condition of the eye muscles called “strabismus”. In the 1990s, however, it was first proposed that it could be used to provide cosmetic enhancements, in particular, wrinkle reduction. Since then it has been used safely and effectively on millions of people worldwide and is considered the gold standard of wrinkle reduction treatments.
When we say “wrinkle reduction” we also mean “wrinkle prevention” because one of the most important uses of botox is to prevent hairline wrinkles from developing into deep gullies on the face. The sooner you catch a wrinkle the less it will need to be treated over time. The preventive approach is central to our process here at Harley Street Dermal.
What Causes Facial Wrinkles?
Facial wrinkles have a number of well-known causes including a gradual loss of collagen and elastin, poor hydration habits, assuming a certain facial expression on a regular basis (hello “smile lines”), and the long-term effects of free radicals (chemicals in the skin associated with exposure to smoking or pollution as well as ageing). Of these causes, perhaps the most common is assuming a particular facial expression over and over.
A facial expression might be furrowing one’s brow (which will create glabellar/frown lines between the eyebrows), raising one’s eyebrows (creating forehead lines), smiling (creating smile lines and crow’s feet around the eyes, pursing of the lips, squinting and more.
There is not much we can do about this, we are what we are. Drinking lots of water and using moisturisers will help. But lines are an inevitable consequence of personality and our interaction with the environment.
Who should have wrinkle reduction?
Botox is most effective at reducing wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead, lines that are created by repetitive muscle movements. It will not usually be of much use against a deep wrinkle such as a nasolabial fold.
Is wrinkle reduction using Botox safe?
Literally millions of people worldwide have been using botulinum toxin A for nearly 30 years now with great success. When professionally administered in a clinical setting it has an outstanding safety record.
Does wrinkle reduction hurt?
A topical numbing cream is usually applied to the treatment area prior to administration, making the treatment itself almost painless.
What are the risks of wrinkle reduction?
There are no known significant risks associated with this type of wrinkle reduction treatment. All that is happening is that the facial muscles are being made to relax which in turn relaxes the skin above them eliminating fine lines. There are some risks with the treatment which are usually minor and avoidable using Dr Ria’s expert technique and experience.
How long is the recovery period after wrinkle reduction treatment?
Most patients can resume their normal activities after leaving the clinic. Some may experience a bit of redness and swelling usually just for an hour or two.
