Threadlifts

Redefines facial contours, tightens sagging skin. Ideal for jowls.

What are PDO Threads?
PDO thread lifts make use of the latest technologies in cosmetic contouring, offering a non-invasive answer to tired, ageing skin without surgical intervention. By stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin beneath the surface of the skin, PDO thread lifts offer an immediate boost in plumpness and uplift, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

How Does it Work?
PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are used to lift any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck. They have collagen stimulating properties and are re-absorbed by the body over time leaving tighter skin. It is an answer to tired looking ageing skin, without having to go through a surgical procedure. There are different types of threads that work well in different areas, and naturally you will have lots of questions which we can answer during your consultation

How Long Will it Last?
You can expect to see an immediate lift to the treated area. The results continue to improve as your skin produces collagen and elastin. The results of the treatment last about 18 months.

Does it Hurt?
Topical and local anaesthetic is administered so the treatment should not be painful

What Areas Can Be Treated?
Jawlines, drooping cheek areas and heavy eyebrows. Thread lifts also offer an answer to the signs of ageing by improving the skins tautness and glow.

During & After Treatment
The treatment takes 60-90 minutes and starts with topical and local anaesthetic being administered to the area. You should be able to return to work immediately, although some small bruising may occur at the injection site and we recommend that you don’t do any vigorous exercise for a couple of weeks after the treatment. We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us. Results are immediate and continue to improve over time.

Skin Boosters

Skin boosters are generally hyaluronic acid based solutions that are injected to improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in specific areas, such as under the eyes and smokers lines

What are Skin Boosters?
Injectable skin boosters are generally hyaluronic acid based solutions that are injected into the skin to improve the appearance of skin on your face, by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They provide optimal results due to their ability to work from the inside out, stimulating your body to make its own collagen and elastin.

Hyaluronic acid is used as it’s a potent natural moisturising factor naturally found in skin, muscle and joints. Its ability to draw 1000 times its own weight in water into the skin makes it ideal for binding and retaining water molecules.

Skin Boosters are ideal for use in specific areas of the face such as:

1. Forehead
2. Crows Feet
3. Under the Eyes
4. Smoker lines
5. Hands
6. Décolletage
7. Neck

Which Skin Booster is best for me?
Here at The Face, we use different skin boosters, according to your areas of concern. Everyone is different and everyone will suit a different skin booster.

During your complimentary consultation, Chrissy will ascertain which type of skin booster will work best for you.

The Skin Boosters we use:

Restylane Skin Booster
Restylane Skin Boosters can help to gradually improve your skin’s condition, increasing elasticity, and reducing fine lines and imperfections. A refreshed look can be achieved with Restylane Skinboosters treatments.

Injections are typically administered over the course of 2-3 treatment sessions, 2–4 weeks apart, to restore your skin’s elasticity and smoothness in a gradual way
Regular maintenance sessions (approximately every 6 months) ensure lasting results

Viscoderm Hydrobooster
We are delighted to be one of the first clinics to offer Hydroboosters to our clients. Developed by IBSA, who produce Profhilo, Hydraboosters offer a dual effect of hydration and stretching on superficial wrinkles. Ideal for treating crows feet, forehead and perioral lines.

Profhilo

Anti-ageing skin care treatment that stimulates the body to to produce its own elastin and collagen. Rejuvenates skin and reduces wrinkles.

What is Profhilo?
Profhilo is a Bioremodelling technique that acts directly onto skin laxity. It produces great results by lifting and tightening the skin that becomes looser and thinner as part of the ageing process.
It is composed of a highly pure grade hyaluronic acid that is heat treated and stimulates the body to produce its own collagen and elastin. Unlike regular dermal fillers, it treats loose skin and improves sagging by tightening wrinkles rather than just filling them.

How Does it Work?
It nourishes the dermal cells and restores both firmness and skin tone to remodel your look. Profhilo is one of our most popular treatments at The Face, due to its amazing results.

How Long Will it Last?
We recommend that you have two treatments, 4 weeks apart. Chrissy Says “After 4 weeks, my patients should see an improvement in fine lines and tightness of their skin. After 8 weeks there’s is definite lifting and tightening of the skin. It is more youthful and will have better hydration. Results should last 6-9 months.”

Does It Hurt?
Profhilo should not be painful and does not require any anaesthetic

What Areas Can Be Treated?
Profhilo can be used to treat skin laxity in the following areas:
Cheeks, jowls, neck, arms, hands and décolletage

During & After Treatment
The treatment takes about 30 minutes, and you can return to work immediately. Tiny bumps/bruises may occur at the injection site but should diminish within 24 hours. We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us.

Wrinkle relaxing treatments

We offer a variety of wrinkle relaxing treatments which can be discussed during your consultation

What Are Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments?

We offer a variety of solutions to combat wrinkles and signs of ageing, including: injectables, skin boosters, facial peels, medical grade products and microneedling. We recommend coming in for a free consultation to discuss which wrinkle relaxing treatment will be the best option for your concerns.

How Does it Work?
As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity. Many anti wrinkle treatments boost the production of collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the skin. At the Face our ethos is natural and youthful, facial aesthetics at its best is only noticeable to you. Everyone else will notice how much “fresher” you look and great for your age!

What Areas Can Be Treated?

The most common areas are:

Forehead and Frown Lines
Crows Feet
Under the Eye
Mid Cheek
Smoker Lines

Other areas can be treated – speak to Chrissy during your consultation and she can recommend the best course of treatment.

Dermal fillers

For lines that appear at rest. Gives volume and hydration for lips, cheeks, tear troughs and nose to mouth lines.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that gives volume and hydration. When we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid decrease and the skin begins to lose its firmness and fullness. In addition to providing volume, they can improve the hydration of the skin from the inside out. Not all hyaluronic acids are the same, each brand has a range of ‘tissue tailored’ products designed for specific results. One size does not fit all. At The Face we only use high quality fillers that have undergone years of research. The type of filler that is suitable for you, will be assessed at your initial consultation.

How Does it Work?
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are a clear sterile gel in a syringe for injecting into the skin providing instant correction for lines that appear at rest. Hyaluronic Acid attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also cushioning and supporting collagen and elastin fibres. At The Face we are aiming to enhance your natural look.

How Long Will it Last?
Depending on the area treated and the product used the results will last for 6-12 months.

Does It Hurt?
We apply a topical anaesthetic to the area so the treatment should not be painful.

What Areas Can Be Treated
Lips – We can give a natural and rejuvenated look by adding volume to thin lips, Correcting asymmetry and creating definition to help with smokers lines or loss of the vermillion border.
Cheek – The cheeks are a key area for rejuvenating the face. As we age we often lose volume due to fat loss and collagen reduction which makes the face look flatter. This treatment can create more prominent defined cheekbones and volumes the cheeks.
Tear Trough – Tear Trough Fillers helps to reduce the “tired look” which are the hollows under your eyes with darker circles.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty -Nose filler can even out bumps, straighten and correct nose shape without the need for surgery.
Chin & Jawline -Chin filler can lengthen and enhance the lower face to create a more balanced profile. Jawline filler can enhance the chin and jowl area, resulting in a more defined & prominent jawline.

During & After Treatment
The treatment takes about 30 minutes, but your full appointment length will be longer so we can apply some topical anaesthetic to the area. You will see immediate results, although sometimes a little bit of swelling will naturally occur & some bruising is possible. We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us. We will ask you to come back for a review 4 weeks after your treatment so we can assess the results. You can return to work immediately, although we recommend that you don’t massage the area or apply make up for 12 hours and avoid extreme temperatures & alcohol for the rest of the day.

Strawberry Lift

The Worlds 1st Laser for double chins with instant painless results.

What is the Strawberry Lift?
Double chins are a common complaint that can be tricky to shift and hard to hide, but now the revolutionary new non-invasive Double Chin Reduction Treatment by Strawberry Lift will banish double chins and give you a smoother and more toned jawline. Thanks to the innovative laser application, double chins can be a thing of the past in just four treatments.

How Does it Work?
The clinically proven, non-invasive laser treatment penetrates the skin to selectively target the fat cells underneath, leaving blood vessels, nerves and other tissue undisturbed. When the fat cells absorb the energy from the lasers they release water, glycerol and free fatty acids. The harmless fat cell content is then removed from the body through lymphatic drainage, giving results that get better over time.
Additionally, ultrasound helps to gently tone the jaw line causing the tissue protein to coagulate and produce new collagen

How Long Will it Last?
Results last 18 months. Due to the natural ageing process, maintenance treatments may be required.

How Many Treatments are Required?
Results will be seen after the first treatment, however a course of 2-4 treatments is recommended with 2 week intervals. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled 3-6 months after completion of a full course if required.

Does it Hurt?
You will experience zero pain and zero discomfort. During the laser process you will feel a comfortable warming feeling in the treatment area, which has been known to make some clients fall asleep.

During & After Treatment
Treatment time is 30 minutes, although a longer appointment is scheduled for your initial consultation. There is no down time and you will be able to return to your normal activities straight away. After your treatment it is essential to perform a minimum of 20 minutes cardiovascular exercise to retain the results. We also recommend that you avoid extreme heat for 24 hours and no sun exposure for 48 hours after treatment. Any other laser treatments, including hair removal should be avoided throughout the Strawberry Lift Course. We will give you a full list of do’s and dont’s & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us.

AlumierMD Facial Peels

Chemical Peels
A chemical Peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower PH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, including exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion.
Chemical Peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt, according to some sources, Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin.

Chemical Peel Treatment Expectation
Beautiful skin does not happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to 8 weeks.
Using homecare products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your daily skin care workout regime.

AlumierMDs Chemical Peel Philosophy
AlumierMD offers light to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results to avoid side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. AlumierMD peels are only performed by trained skin care professionals to ensure they are delivered safely and effectively.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of the skin, forcing your body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimise complication. Post-treatment products minimise complications, heal, soothe the skin and then maintain the results.
