The best starter treatments if you’re new to aesthetics
Aesthetic treatments, West Malling, Kent
If you’re new to aesthetic treatments – where do you start? And if you’re feeling cautious about still looking like ‘you’, what are the best treatments to keep you looking natural? The whole field of cosmetic medical procedures can be confusing, and it’s hard to know how to even think about it all. And when you’ve found your practitioner, what sort of treatments might they suggest, and why? So, if you’re embarking on your treatment journey for the first time, read on for the best treatments to consider.
What are ‘starter’ treatments?
If you’d like to try tweakments, but don’t know where to start, or want something that will give you a visible result, but don’t want it to be too obvious or require too much downtime, starter tweakments are a great place to start. They make small changes and help ease you in to the world of aesthetics gently.
Polynucleotides are skin-boosting injections – a bit like injectable moisture treatments, such as Profhilo – but with some added oomph if you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone. That’s because they’re biostimulators so injecting them can boost collagen and elastin production, plus improve skin hydration. They actually work at a cellular level to trigger the skin to rejuvenate itself. They’re anti-inflammatory, too, and are particularly good for treating dark circles around the eyes. If you’d like to combat the common signs of ageing or rejuvenate the skin without adding volume or making any significant changes to the face, they could be a great choice for you.
Baby Botox uses the same botulinum toxin solution as standard Botox treatment. The difference between Botox and baby Botox is the technique in which it is used. The best way to describe it is that baby Botox treatment is preventative and Botox treatment is corrective. Baby Botox is best performed on a patient who has not got many lines or winkles but is starting to feel concerned about the effect that ageing is having on their face.
Small amounts of dermal filler
By injecting tiny amounts of dermal filler, across various areas of the face, we can make small, subtle changes to the facial profile and shape, without increasing the volume drastically in one area. Instead, the overall effect is balanced, beautified and natural, for a subtle transformation.
Injectable moisturisers like Profhilo and Juvderm Volite restore the skin’s firmness, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and enhance the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
Profhilo contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available and delivers prolonged efficacy, integrating into the tissue where it then really gets to work to restore the levels of hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin.
You can expect improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and hydration, with the boost of an almost immediate tightening effect in some cases. But it’s so subtle, you simply look radiant, well-hydrated, and as though you’ve had a good night’s rest.
An advanced facial is a facial treatment designed to resolve or reduce specific problems with troubled skin. For example, it may target problems such as acne (or acne-like conditions, eg perioral dermatitis), pigmentation problems, or sun damage. It includes clinical-grade treatments intended to solve specific problems including chemical peels, microneedling, Byonik Laser, Exosomes, HydraFacial and Fractional Radiofrequency.
After an advanced facial, your skin will appear clearer, brighter, and smoother. Depending on the components of the facial, your skin may also appear tighter or lifted. These facials are medical and so will give you better results than a spa facial because they are customised to deal with your skin’s problems.
