What are my non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation?

half faceA frustration common to many women is that their face is ageing them prematurely: ‘I feel young but I look old!’

There is a vast range of cosmetic procedures that can tackle the visible effects of ageing – and not all of them involve surgery.

At his Milton Keynes clinic, plastic surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh combines the best non-surgical solutions with the latest technology in skincare to offer a range of facial rejuvenation treatments, helping women to look as young as they feel.

What can I do about the fine lines and wrinkles?

Continually moving muscles lie under the skin on the brow and around the eyes which means, over the years, the skin becomes lined and creased. Botox, the global chart-topper for addressing dynamic wrinkles, puts a temporary block on signals from the nerves to the muscles, stilling them and allowing the skin to smooth out.

As a general guide, the results will last between three and six months but this varies from person to person. For other lines and wrinkles, a chemical peel may be the most suitable treatment. Here, the top layer of damaged skin is removed, revealing a more youthful and even toned layer, resulting in a revitalised, less lined visage.

Can I address loss of facial volume without surgery?

It’s not just skin damage or muscle movement that leaves an ageing trail on the face, but a loss of volume caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Gravity then becomes the victor as the cheeks lose form, sag, and the jawline loses definition.

After examining your facial structure and assessing the condition of your skin, Milton Keynes facial rejuvenation surgeon Mr Ghosh will advise you on the best course of action for you to achieve your goals; he may advise a fat transfer, whereby fat cells are removed from another part of your body and transferred to the face, restoring youthful volume and re-contouring your features.
