What is it and what is the cause?
As we get older, we notice changes in our skin like wrinkles, spots, and veins. But the biggest changes happen under the skin. Our cheeks lose their plumpness, and gravity makes our face shape shift. This can create lines on our cheeks, around our mouth, and even jowls. It can make our face look longer and thinner.
At Sandon, volume-restoring treatments options like Sculptra and Dermal Fillers, which systematically reintroduce lost volume, effectively "lifting" the lower face. While fillers offer instant results with a duration of approximately nine months, Sculptra operates gradually over several weeks, a preference for many clients, and maintains its effects for around two years.
We also offer non injectable treatments as as skin-tightening treatments, such as Radio Frequency and HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound), penetrate deep within the skin to trigger collagen production, ultimately a more youthful complexion.
Radiofrequency Skin tightening, also known as RF, is a highly sought-after procedure for individuals seeking a more youthful appearance without the need for surgical intervention. Environmental factors, such as sun exposure, can hasten the ageing process, resulting in loose, sagging skin that can make you appear older than your actual age. Additionally, the natural loss of volume in the cheeks due to the ageing process or weight loss can exacerbate this issue, akin to deflating a balloon. RF uses heat to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen promoting a tighter, glowing profile.
A radiofrequency (RF) facial is the perfect choice prior to any special event. For the ultimate radiant glow, consider incorporating a Dermalux treatment as an add-on.
Profhilo is an innovative skin treatment that offers remarkable benefits for skin rejuvenation. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Profhilo is known for its hydrating properties and its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. It involves a series of injections that are strategically administered to improve skin texture, firmness, and elasticity.
Profhilo provides a natural, youthful appearance by addressing issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. This non-surgical treatment is popular for its minimal downtime and long-lasting results, making it an excellent option for those seeking to revitalise and hydrate their skin.
In contrast to traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra encourages your skin to naturally produce more collagen over several weeks, gradually restoring facial volume. The outcome is a softer, fuller, and authentically youthful appearance. This progressive development is favored by many clients since it keeps your enhancement discreet, leaving others admiring your improved appearance without detecting any telltale signs.
Typically, the guideline is one vial of Sculptra per decade of life, though individual factors may influence this. After a thorough assessment of facial structure and contour, strategic product placement revitalises and redefines lost volume, administered in stages spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The remarkable results endure for approximately two years.
