As the skin ages, it begins to lose its youthful characteristics. Due to the depletion of vital substances that give the skin structure, the skins begins to sag and lose shape. Today, there a number of minimally-invasive treatments that can brighten and tighten your skin. Dr. Ifeoma Ejikeme and the specialists at Adonia Medical Clinic offer comprehensive rejuvenation procedures to regenerate your skin.
Skin Tightening Options at at Adonia Medical Clinic, Maida Vale, UK
Chemical Peels. Skin peels can greatly enhance the appearance of the skin. During a skin peel procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the face. Chemical peels come in three strengths: superficial, medium, and deep. The solution causes the top layer of the skin to shed, sloughing off impurities and dead skin cells. As the skin peels, healthier, tighter skin surfaces. The effect is a tighter, even skin. Chemical peels not only tighten the skin, they can lighten discolorations and help improve skin tone and overall texture.
Recovery time: The recovery time depends on the strength of the chemical peel. After a superficial peel, the skin will be red and tingly, like a sunburn. Normal activities can typically be resumed immediately. A medium peel may require a few days of downtime (5-7 days for the skin to heal). A deep peel requires a couple of weeks downtime (10-14 days for the skin to heal).
Silhouette Soft. This innovative minimally-invasive procedure uses a subdermal threading technique to lift and sculpt the face. During a Silhouette Soft appointment, Dr. Ejikeme inserts an absorbable suture beneath the skin and gently adjusts the skin to improve contours and add definition. The suture helps restore structure and prompt new collagen production. Once production is triggered, the additional collagen reserves can give lasting positive effects. Over time the thread will be naturally absorbed by the body. Silhouette Soft is excellent for tightening a sagging jawline and neck; improving laxity in the cheeks; and lifting the eyebrows.
Recovery time: Because Silhouette Soft does not involve surgery or incisions, the recovery time in minimal. Most patients can return to work without missing a beat. Immediately after a treatment, the skin may be slightly bruised or swollen in places. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve themselves in a few days. Some activities, such as strenuous exercise, should be avoided or restricted for one to two weeks after the procedure.
Other Skin Enhancement Treatments
Other rejuvenation techniques can be used to complement, skin tightening procedures. Injectable dermal fillers can add volume in selected areas and wrinkle relaxing injections can smooth out creases and lines.
