Choosing the right wrinkle treatment for your skin


Wednesday 29th July 2009

Choosing the right wrinkle treatment for your skin can be one of the most important health choices you will make.

Basically, aside from going under the knife, there are two types of anti-ageing treatments that work naturally with your skin:

  1. Botox and dermal fillers
  2. Skin resurfacing and collagen-boosting techniques

Botox and Dermal Fillers

These are the most invasive treatments that we provide at SkinGenesis, however the way we offer the treatments ensures that they fit with our general ethos of providing treatments that work with the skin to avoid complications or odd-looking faces!

Botox, when administered by a fully qualified and experienced doctor, can be a wonderful remedy for wrinkles and sagging skin. Working as a muscle relaxant, Botox prevents the facial muscles from pulling the skin around in directions that make it wrinkle. Results are instant, but it’s worth noting that Botox wears off within up to six months, so more treatments will be needed. Read more on botox

The dermal fillers we offer are temporary fillers, which place hyaluronic acid (a naturally occuring substance in the body that decreases with age)  in problem areas of the face. This magically attracts water to the area, resulting in plumper, more youthful skin. We do not offer permanent dermal fillers because once they’re injected, they’re there to stay, forever! All dermal fillers treat the symptoms of ageing, meaning the skin still continues to age and move. The problem therefore with permanent fillers is that they remain in the same place as the skin moves south, creating a distorted and rather odd appearance. Temporary fillers wear off as the skin continues to age, so are much safer!

Skin resurfacing and collagen-boosting techniques

If you’re looking for a longer term treatment that addresses the cause of wrinkles, instead of just the immediate ‘quick-fixes’, you might want to consider the more natural skin resurfacing and collagen-boosting skin rejuvenation treatments that are available.

These work by retraining the skin to think it is 25 again through tissue remodelling. By restoring its health and elasticity these techniques give the skin a certain youthful thickness which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles.

The treatments are entirely natural and non invasive and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to give your skin strength and resilience.

SkinGym anti-ageing is a firm favourite with clients – promising younger skin within 40 days. It is an intense programme, so if you fancy taking it a bit slower, you could take a look at the SkinSpa menu too.
