Non-invasive treatments have evolved far beyond the typical anti-ageing injections and fillers, which are still very popular, however there are loads of additions, such as PDO threads, Profhilo and Silhouette Soft. Rejuvenate and enhance what makes you, you. Their range of non-invasive cosmetic injection treatments can help show off the features you wish to enhance.
We will start with the more traditional treatments and give a brief explanation of how these work. Wrinkles and volume loss are a natural part of the ageing process – our skin gets thinner and our body decreases its production of natural collagen and elastin. You can prevent and reduce the effect of wrinkles with cosmetic injectables.
Anti-wrinkle injections with Botulinum Toxin Type A
More commonly referred to as Botox, this is when they treat static lines to give a smoother appearance to areas such as the forehead, glabellar areas and crows’ feet. The results achieved are temporary and this slows you to refine your look over time.
Dermal fillers are used to plump out areas of volume loss or add volume to areas where one may want a little more, for example, lips. Unlike wrinkles, which require muscle relaxants to soften them, facial volume and folds require a dermal filler to help re-volumise and hydrate the area. The team at Eden can help you choose the right product (fillers differ greatly in their composition) for the right area.
This is a treatment that works to tighten the skin instead of filling it. Although Hyaluronic acid based, it is not a filler. It remodels your skin by stimulating the production of four different types of collagen and elastin. The face is injected using five points on the face. As well as improving skin laxity, it will improve skin tone, texture, hydration and radiance. It increases firmness and elasticity to give an airbrush like skin effect. Many patients are enjoying this alongside their traditional treatments as an extra boost.
A PDO thread lift is the perfect solution for skin tightening and rejuvenation. It’s carried out under local anaesthetic. Threads are contained inside tiny needles, which are inserted into the skin. As the needle is removed, the thread is left in the skin. A network of threads acts as a sling for the skin that helps hold the skin against sagging. A ‘mesh’ of threads helps support and tighten sagging or loose skin. They can be used in areas such as jowls, double chin, jawline, neck, and under-eye bags.
Silhouette Soft is a facelift technique using absorbable sutures that have small cones attached. These are designed to be tightened in two directions under your skin. When pulled, the cones catch the collagen and lift and tighten your facial tissues. Silhouette Soft is mainly used for facial contouring in the jawline, cheeks, Marionette lines, naso-labial, eyebrows and neck.
Hyperhydrosis is a condition in which the sweat glands produce excessive quantities of sweat. This can be the cause of extreme embarrassment and self-consciousness to anyone who has this ailment. If you suffer from this complaint, our treatment could be the answer you have been looking for.
