Everyone deserves to age gracefully and feel beautiful. You may believe it is all down to genetics, but only 10% of how our skin ages comes from our genes. That means there is so much more we can do to help our skin age well.
To begin the journey to beautiful skin, Dr Rudd and her cosmetic nurse will assess your skin thoroughly, and devise your SKINDEPTH Skin Plan. This is your own personalised plan for life. Our approach is based on studying your face as a global aesthetic and creating a unique plan for you to achieve a balanced, beautiful natural look. This involves a combination of muscle relaxants, dermal fillers, laser, skin care and skin peels to guarantee you’ll look and feel a totally rejuvenated version of you.
No one enjoys looking in the mirror and seeing new wrinkles. Of course, facial lines and wrinkles are an integral part of our skin ageing and can occur at any age. They are related to movement of the muscles that attach to the skin. But naturally we’d all like to do something about them.
Anti-wrinkle injections aim to soften the lines by gently relaxing the facial muscles, resulting in smoother and more youthful looking skin. They are used to treat frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crows feet. They may also be used to treat some lines around the mouth, the neck and scrunching 'bunny' lines of the nose.
The botulinum toxin which is used may also treat some medical conditions such as bruxism (teeth grinding) and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
At SKINDEPTH, our dermatologists and nurses can perform any of these anti wrinkle treatments in safe, comfortable surroundings.
Another effect of ageing on skin is where our skin loses volume in the form of collagen. Hyaluronic acid is the building block of collage, and thankfully can be replaced using a synthetic form known as dermal fillers.
The benefits of dermal fillers are they can smooth out wrinkles and folds, volumise furrows, improve uneven skin contour as well as plump the skin. Essentially they can be used as a non-surgical treatment to reshape the face. They can help with lines around the mouth, the nasolabial area, dark circles under the eyes and cheeks, as well as the lips and sagging jaw line. You’ll find dermal fillers can freshen your skin, and give you a less tired appearance.
At SKINDEPTH, an initial consultation with Dr Alice Rudd would assess if fillers are suitable and safe for you, and which is the most appropriate product for your skin.
Using the science of physics, medical grade laser therapies continue to provide remarkable breakthroughs in the treatment of skin imperfections and skin rejuvenation. Essentially lasers use wavelengths of light to respond to colours in the skin. The lasers select targets in the skin and heat them, leading to their disappearance or reduction. The good news is lasers can safely and effectively treat redness (capillaries and spider veins, birth marks), brown marks (pigmentation and melasma and sunspots), and also provide skin tightening
At SKINDEPTH Dermatology and Cosmetic we are experienced in the use of the V Beam Perfecta. This is considered the gold standard pulse dye laser in the treatment of redness and pigmentation. Lasers may also be used on low settings to provide gentle rejuvenation.
Advanced Skin Tightening - Radio frequency
Radio frequency is the most technologically advanced treatment for skin tightening available today. It works by piercing tiny needles into the dermis of the skin to trigger the skins own natural healing process. This results in collagen and elastin remodelling.
At SKINDEPTH, we offer the very latest radio frequency treatment using the Endymed Intensif micro needling technology. This leaves you with rejuvenated, refreshed skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, acne and traumatic scars, whatever your skin type.
