The telltale signs of ageing can manifest in many ways and at different stages in a person’s life. Whereas one person may succumb to fine lines and wrinkles relatively late in life, another may develop deep folds and sagging skin in their early years. The key to restoring youth to someone’s appearance, therefore, is to combine a number of techniques and procedures to address the specific concerns of each individual patient.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments can improve some of the most common signs of ageing such as:
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- A gaunt and hollowed appearance
- Sun-damaged skin
- Acne and acne scars
- A dull and uneven complexion
- Sagging facial structures
Whether by using wrinkle injections, fillers, medical-grade peels or advanced light therapies, the array of choices available can treat just about any appearance-related concern.
Typically, the patients Dr Flynn sees fall into two different age groups. In younger patients, it is possible to use minimally invasive techniques to enhance a particular feature, or to create a desired shape. In older patients, it is more likely we need to replace lost volume, using dermal fillers.
A youthful face is usually fuller, with well-supported fat, full-cheeks and smooth contours. With age, this volume dissipates, often leaving sunken cheeks and harsher angles, which combine to leave an aged appearance. Although anti-wrinkle injections can be used to smooth the lines and wrinkles that develop on the face over time, often a face cannot be fully rejuvenated without restoring the volume lost in the cheeks and other areas of the face.
It is important that the methods used to refresh and restore youth to the face are tailored to each patient. The key to non-surgical facial rejuvenation is a thorough consultation, during which the surgeon can explain what can be achieved and decide upon the optimal treatment plan for each patient.
By restoring lost volume, addressing the tone and texture of the skin, and by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, patients can look forward to a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. Using a combination of different minimally-invasive non-surgical techniques can restore a youthful appearance whilst preserving individuality.
