The main cause of ageing is collagen breakdown within our skin and is accompanied by the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Did you know?
You may think lines & wrinkles are the same, but actually they are not!
Lines are usually small & fine, and occur from repeated muscle movement such as smiling. They are typically present underneath & around the eyes, the lips, in between eyebrows and on the cheeks.
Wrinkles are static & more dramatic than lines, and can be located anywhere on the face, neck, chest arms or body. They remain visible as folds, ridges and creases in the skin, even when you relax the muscle.
If left untreated, a line can deepen and become a wrinkle over time as collagen continues to breakdown & fat is lost from around the face. Similarly, when treated correctly, a deep set wrinkle can reduce into a fine line making it less apparent and in most cases completely erased.
Anti-wrinkle treatments at DestinationSkin
We can help you feel youthful and look radiant by erasing the signs of ageing with our range of anti-ageing injectables treatments:
Toxin is derived from a natural purified type A protein. This is not uncommon to derive medicines in this way in the same way that penicillin is developed from protein molecules. Toxin is a safe, proven technology and is now an affordable and quick solution to naturally treat the signs of ageing. It is suitable for virtually anyone who is concerned about lines and wrinkles and has subsequently become the treatment of choice for many celebrities and aesthetic patients as an alternative to more intrusive or artificial types of surgery and can help to delay the need for invasive procedures.
Most modern non-permanent fillers are hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. This helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin. As we age the natural replacement of hyaluronic acid is reduced and therefore the moisturising and plumping effects decrease. Both our chosen brands Juvederm and Restylane will help instantly improve facial lines, acne scars and other contouring deficiencies.
Both Juvederm and Restylane are licensed products and FDA Approved.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
The treatment we administer works by injecting the Toxin which blocks the signals to the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat produced. This has given many clients the ability to manage their condition and control the impact it has had on their day to day lives when anti-perspirants and deodorants have failed to work.
The full effects of the treatment develops over 2-3 days and the improvements will last for 3-8 months, and the treatment can be repeated as often as required. We can treat problem areas such as; underarms, hands and feet.
Radiesse is a volumising injectable dermal filler that restores volume and adds structure to the skin. The unique, innovative and safe gel formula contains calcium microspheres (CaHa) which stimulate the production of your own natural collagen.
Treatments typically take around 30 minutes and discomfort level is minimal. The results are instant and can last up to 12 months in many patients with a single treatment.
Sculptra (otherwise known as Poly-L-Lactic acid or “liquid facelift”) is an FDA approved volumising solution injected into the face to replace the loss of collagen throughout the ageing process.
Facial volume is restored with a series of injections with gradual results rather than a dramatic change in appearance.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive treatment which helps to stimulate collagen and boost hydration. It’s a series of mini-injections which consist of vitamins and Hyaluronic acid which melt away fatty deposits under the skins surface.
Sclerotherapy or injection of veins is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of veins. The veins are injected with a solution called Fibrovein which damages the internal lining of the vein and causes blood clotting within the vein.
In time, your own body will then destroy the vein and it will disappear.
