Skin Treatments Southwold

Mesotherapy & Microneedling Facials

Mesotherapy & Microneedling are methods for improving certain skin issues. Mesotherapy is a series of mulitple tiny injections covering the face and sometimes other areas, it is usually conducted as a course of treatments for ultimate results but can be done intermittently. Microneedling also has the same protocol but products are penetrated into the skin by a Dermapen device. 

I have a few different types of facials available depending on your personal skin issues. With all the mesotherapy treatments I offer, to make them more effective I start with what we call the vascular stage, this is actually very important to kick start the body into activating and flushing the system so that the mesotherapy on the face works effectively. This part of the treatment itself is a specific series of injections on the back. It will make you feel lighter in the body and generally healthier as it unloads toxins.

Signature Luxe Facial

The Signature Luxe facial is great for specific needs, but also as a general treatment it makes the skin simply amazing! Using a secret cocktail of peptides, HA & Amino acids this treatment helps to lift, tighten, remove blemishes and minimise pores and skin texture. *Due to ingredients if you have botox you can only have this treatment within 2 weeks of a toxin treatment.

Results: 3-14 days post treatment.

Treatment Protocol: once every 4-6 months.

Detox Facial

Perfect for an instantly glowing and unloaded complexion this facial stimulates the production of collagen, engages the healing response and flushes the skin for a refreshed look. This can be done on the face, neck or décolletage helping to promoter healthier skin.

Results: few days post treatment.

Treatment Protocol: can be done at anytime, even weekly if requested.

Glass Skin Facial

A fantastic treatment for the ultimate glow and glass skin look. This can be paired with a dermaplane 48 hours before for ultimate results. Skin looks smoother and younger due to the glowing appearance.

Results: few days post treatment.

Treatment Protocol: once a month.

Acne/Rosacea Relief Facial

This facial contains another cocktail of amino acids and hyaluronic acid to reduce the redness caused by the vasoactive peptide in the body that is activated causing redness and inflammation. treatment fro the conditions can be during active stage of inflammation. one session is possibly enough but must be judged on a case by case basis and if the condition returns within 1-2 months it can be repeated with a higher strength cocktail on a second session.

Results: within 2 weeks.

Treatment Protocol: once unless condition returns then can be retreated at 1-2 months later.

I like to allow up to an hour for mesotherapy sessions as we need to numb the face, complete the vascular stage, mix up the cocktails and do the actual treatment. Tiny needle prick bruises may appear a couple of hours after treatment but these can be covered with make up the next day if required. You may not wish to have the vascular stage which is your choice but please note the price will remain the same and you may not see the best results.

MesoEye Lift

Dark circles? Eye bags? Fine wrinkles? Puffy eyes? Droopy eyelids? Dry skin?

The MesoEye Lift is an excellent & effective way to deal with the above symptoms, with the results being like those of surgery. The innovative formula is injected in a mesotherapy way all around the eye area or in the particular areas of concern around the eye. The peptides in this product trigger the cascade of vascular processing for normalisation of the periorbital zone. It relives the spasm of the periorbital artery which is the cause of the number 1 problem in this zone - oxygen deprivation which is called Hypoxia. Hypoxia causes swelling, water retention, eye bags, loose skin etc.

Because of its lifting properties this can be used above the eyelid where you may be experiencing sagging eyelids. This treatment is excellent combined with other aesthetic procedures such as botox and filler in the nearby areas. 

Results: become apparent during the treatment period (stated below) It then lasts up to 2.5years!

Treatment Protocol: 3-6 sessions every 7-10 days. This Treatment does not require the vascular stage.

  • Will it be painful?
    I always use numbing cream prior to treatment and the filler I use also contains Lidocaine which is the numbing agent which works quickly in the area. Some facial areas are more sensitive and these will be numbed with Lidocaine separately.
  • How can I prepare for the treament?
    Please avoid blood thinning medication for 7 days before treatment. Do not stop prescribed medication for cardiovascular disease. Do not have any important events planned for 2 weeks incase of bruising. Avoid any aggressive facial treatments including AHA peels, waxing, tweezing or hair removal cream on the area 3 days before treatment. If you are unwell or have any active infection (ear/nose/throat/dental abcess etc) by the time of your apoointment, please rearrange your booking as these can result in delayed complications. Please avoid alcohol & coffee 24 hours prior to treatment as it can heighten the chances of bruising, swelling & bleeding. You can take Arnica pillules in the run up to your appointment to help reduce bruising. Please have something to eat and drink before treatment.
  • How long does the treatment last?
    PDO Mono Threads last in the skin around 3-4 months as they are gradually breaking down and being absorbed by the body. The after effects are increased collagen and elastin in the areas that the threads are placed.
  • What is the aftercare?
    ~To reduce swelling apply a cold compress regularly you can also take an antihistamine. You can carry on your day as normal. ~Please bear in mind threads are extremely likely to noticeably bruise, this bruising can last 4 weeks on some occasions. ~Avoid extreme temperatures of hot & cold for 48hrs. eg. sunbeds/saunas. ~Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours. ~Apply arnica cream 4 times a day, as needed. ~Light makeup may be worn 6 hrs post treatment, but do avoid rubbing/touching the area.

Microneedling

Mironeedling creates many micro injuries in the skin that are proven to produce collagen and elastin, along with serum we can treat specific skin concerns.

As well as the facial options above that can be used with microneedling, there are 2 main other skin serums that I like to use with the treatment. They are the "glow" serum for anti pigmentation and anti ageing, or "refresh" which provides intense hydration and anti ageing.

The microneedling treatment will make the skin very hot with a sunburn type feeling, so within the treatment I do an ice globe stage to cool & calm. The face will be red afterwards for some time so please plan ahead as you will need to let the skin heal and not be applying make up for 24 hours or going on a hot holiday ro a couple of weeks.

For general maintenance microneedling can be performed every 4 weeks for 3 sessions or 4 sessions for pigmentation.

Different serums and products may be chosen depending on your specific conerns, though it is important to remember it is the microneedling action itself that really creates the results.

PDO Threads in Southwold

PDO Threads are made from soluble Polydioxanone, a material used surgically for many years. PDO stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin so threads are placed strategically where needed, in the areas of creased skin.

Most commonly mono threads are used in areas needing a collagen boost, these are 'smooth' tiny threads that can be used anywhere on the face and neck. They dissolve over 3-4 months, continuing to build collagen and elastin over a year period. More threads can be added as and when. They are a quick treatment and minimally invasive with minimum pain and carry no side effects or risks.

Results can be seen initially with ongoing effects becoming apparent over time. There is no specific age to have threads, they can be used on anyone needing a boost of collagen in certain areas.

 

Threads also compliment other aesthetic treatments such as Botox and filler so you have a complete treatment plan. The amount and types of threads used vary for every client and their personal desired outcome.
