Ageing is a fact of life, but looking your age is not!
Wrinkles have always been a surefire sign of aging; however, stress and other health reasons could also cause them. Whatever be the reason, if they are bothering you, wrinkle treatments are something you might want to opt for. Exposure to sun and ensuing damage caused, thinning of skin, irregular pigmentation, and even heredity are some of the other things causing wrinkles.
We, at PHI Skin and Hair Clinic, understand the need to get rid of and even prevent wrinkles; which is why, we offer a wide range of wrinkle treatments depending on your needs.
Benefits of Wrinkle Treatments
If by getting rid of wrinkles with wrinkle treatments makes you look younger, then opting for it is an obvious benefit. A lot of non-surgical, non-invasive wrinkle treatments are available today with little to no down time required of the patients. So, if you don’t want to opt for the traditional face-lifts, there are other options that you can opt for.
10 Types of Wrinkle Treatments at PHI Clinic
We, at PHI cosmetic clinic, offer a range of wrinkle treatments. Depending on the type of the wrinkle treatments, the preparation and what you would expect during the treatment will vary.
1. Medicated facials
Medicated facials will help peel off dead cell layers and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles. It will also accelerate collagen and elastin-generation, improve the tone and feel of your skin and slow the aging process.
2. Medicated peels
Medicated peels are medicine-based peels that are applied to your face that help remove the dead skin layers. This helps rejuvenate the skin, tightens the skin and helps slow the aging process.
This is another wrinkle treatment to remove the dead skin cell layers through a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure. Depending on what our doctor recommends for your particular skin, you will be expecting one of the two types of microdermabrasion treatments:
- Crystal microdermabrasion treatment:
In this method, you can expect our aesthetician to use a handheld device to spray fine crystals on your skin to scrub away the outer skin layers.
- Diamond-tip handpiece
In this method, our expert will scrub away very gently, the outer layer of your skin using a diamond-tip handpiece. Depending on how much pressure is applied, and how long it is applied for, the handpiece will suction away dead cells in your skin.
4. Laser therapy
This wrinkle treatment targets the specific skin problem-areas and irregularities with short pulses of light to remove dead skin cells layer by layer and smoothening the skin.
5. HIFU (ultrasound)
High-intensity focused ultrasound, a relatively new technique is a non-invasive wrinkle treatment that encourages new collagen production through the use of ultrasound energy.
6. Surgical (facelift)
This is an invasive, surgical wrinkle treatment in which the tissues below the skin are surgically altered and the face is pulled back to make restore the youthful structure of the face.
Recovery and risks
The recovery times and risks vary from each procedure. Often, the non-invasive or the minimally invasive procedure have little to no recovery time while the invasive, surgical procedures like facelift have more recovery time as well as greater risk factor.
