Cosmetic Treatments – Dermal Fillers, Botox and Skin Rejuvenation

Lichfield Skincare offers a discrete non-surgical cosmetic procedure service with individualised treatments to improve wrinkles and lines, contour the face, and brighten the skin texture. Consultations are with Dr Anne Ward, consultant dermatologist, who can guide you on your treatment choice.

Botox for Lines and Wrinkles (Botox, Azzalure, Bocouture)
Botox is a protein which is injected into muscles to make them relax. This helps to smooth out wrinkles and lines, as the muscles can no longer scrunch up the skin. Botox is mainly used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Lichfield Skincare also treats more specialised areas with Botox – neck bands, dimpled cobblestone chins, the jawline (Nefertiti neck lift) and the Décolletage. Botox can be given on its own or in combination with a Dermal Filler, if the wrinkle is deep and present at rest. Treatment needs to be repeated every 3 – 4 months, as otherwise the wrinkles return to their previous appearance.

Dermal fillers (Juvéderm, Belotero, Restylane)
Lichfield Skincare uses Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Fillers to plump out deeper wrinkles and to restore volume to cheeks and lips by enhancing Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. As the face ages, fat pads in the cheeks slip downwards resulting in prominent nose to mouth wrinkles (nasolabial folds) and jowls. Lines and shadows drag the corners of the lips down (marionette, sad lines) giving an old and tired appearance. A Dermal Filler can be injected directly in to the wrinkle, softening the appearance of the line, or it can be injected more deeply to add strength and structure to the skin and volume to the face and lips. Treatment needs to be repeated every 9 – 12 months, and depends on many factors, such as skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age.

Skin Rejuvenation
Older skin can look dull which open pores, fine crinkles, pigmentation and even red scaling patches. Lichfield Skincare offers several treatments to make the skin brighter and more youthful looking. These include prescription strength creams, Mini-Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peels, the Dermaroller (micro-needling) and Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). Mini-Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peels are used to treat patches of flat, brown pigmentation on the face and the back of the hands. Micro-needling is a natural way to stimulate skin production of collagen by creating multiple small channels in the skin which regenerate and repair to form new skin cells and boost the blood supply to the skin.

Photodynamic Therapy is approved by NICE to treat sun damaged skin, which causes photo-ageing. It can help to treat red, scaling patches, patchy pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. Treatment is very simple – a specialist cream is applied to the face for 30 – 45 minutes then activated by a red light (not laser). Sun damaged skin cells are selectively destroyed, leaving the healthy tissue which regenerates to give fresher looking skin. It can be used on the face and scalp.

What happens during a Cosmetic Consultation?
At the first visit, the face and its muscles are fully examined, and possible treatments are discussed, including the costs involved. Some people choose to have treatment at the first visit, others prefer to think about the options and to book a further appointment should they decide to proceed. A few people will be advised that the treatments may not be suitable for them and are pointed in the right direction!
Aftercare advice is provided, and the results are checked at 2 – 4 weeks, to ensure everything looks good.
