Facial Rejuvenation Experts- Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic

There is no shortage of practitioners from a variety of backgrounds offering Dermal fillers and Botox injections. The trouble is that a majority of these practitioners do not understand how the face ages and/ or have a limited number of treatments to offer. Any specialist mechanic needs a properly resourced toolbox not just one or two tools. Same thing with facial rejuvenation. If your practitioner only has one or two tools, that is all they can offer you, whether or not it is best for you. 
Someone with 30 years experience in general practice or nursing maybe an expert in asthma management or vaccination but it does not make them an expert in facial rejuvenation- although they may make such claims. So do check that your practitioner has experience in procedures they are offering you.
Concepts of beauty also change over time. So we need a balanced approach rather than too much of the wrong thing!
Let me give you some examples. In the 1970's when we did not have the modern treatments and technology all we had was facelift surgeries. Surgeons devised extensive invasive techniques in order to produce the tightest and longest lasting results that they could. We all know the consequences, the results were too tight 'Wind Tunnel' look faces but they were not necessarily young or pleasing to look at.
Now such surgeries have fallen out of favour and we are in an era of over filling. What I call 'pillow faces'. Sadly it is not only the patients, but I see practitioners with such appearances. Looking filled has almost become the norm!
When Botox first came out it was the norm to see frozen expressionless faces. Patient themselves are now moving away from too much Botox and requesting less of the stuff so they still have moment but look softer and well rested.

So what is our approach of facial rejuvenation at the coltishall clinic?
Our approach is to produce natural looking, pleasing and harmonious results. We recommend that you bring your old photo that you like to your consultation. We can see how your face has changed and try and reverse these changes.

What happens with facial ageing and how we can help?
1. Loss of skin quality, sun exposure and smoking related changes.
Solution- skincare and skin rejuvenation treatments. You need a machine or laser that is suitable for your unique concerns. We are one of the very few clinics in the country who have invested in the full range of specialised dermatological lasers. Some practitioners claim their laser can do everything but that simply is not true. Often a combinations of machines are required to produce best results. Dedicated Medical Lasers are advanced tools and much better than cheap devices that have become widely available to non-medical personnel since deregulation!

2. Hyper dynamic wrinkles or in simpler terms wrinkles caused by over use or overactivity of facial expression muscles.
Solution-judicious use of botulinum toxin injections.

3. Loss of volume- we lose bone, fat and muscle resulting in facial deflation and sagging of tissues.
Solution-facial fillers to restore lost volume and surgery to reposition sagging tissues and remove excess skin. 
Fillers have come a long way and today's fillers are natural, highly purified products which are extremely unlikely to produce allergic reactions or other problems. One caveat is to stay away from permanent fillers. The only permanent filler I use is your own fat to restore the facial volume.

4. Sagging skin- gravity and reduction in skin quality can cause skin to stretch and sag. If you have not had the benefit of preventative treatments or there is significant skin excess surgery is required. However, you do not need extensive surgery under general anaesthesia. By improving your skin quality and replacing lost volume you are less likely to need extensive surgery.  Extensive surgery has fallen out of favour and less invasive surgery under local anaesthesia is in. This is what we like to offer. Extent of surgery is also tailored to your specific requirements.

  1. The cruel climate, the solid sun, the boisterous make up and numerous different elements contribute in harming the cells and tissues of the skin and welcome untimely skin maturing.
