If you would like to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your eyes and brow area, injectable wrinkle treatment can help. Wrinkles are caused by the activity of facial muscles underneath the skin, and injectable treatment works by relaxing these muscles so they become less active.
The treatment is usually performed on the deep grooves or ‘frown lines’ between the brows, the horizontal lines across the forehead, and the ‘crows feet’ around the eyes. Wrinkle treatment shows visible results within days, and is effective on a long-term temporary basis, usually lasting for around 6 months. At our centres, this treatment is only ever performed by qualified medical professionals, who ensure it is performed safely and with natural – yet noticeable – results.
Dermal filler injections are a versatile treatment used for adding volume to various areas of the face. The treatment can be used to fill out deep lines such as the nose to mouth grooves (‘nasolabial folds’), increase volume in the cheeks to give them a youthful ‘apple’, or to plump up the lips.
The dermal fillers we use at Centre for Surgery are all made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, so they are completely safe and natural. As with wrinkle injections, dermal fillers are only ever administered by medical professionals with a comprehensive knowledge of facial anatomy, to ensure the treatment is performed safely and effectively.
Excessive sweating, or ‘hyperhidrosis’, is a condition that causes the body’s sweat glands to be more active than normal, producing more perspiration than needed. Areas most commonly affected are the underarms, feet and palms of the hands, which can be constantly damp even in cool weather. The condition can hamper enjoyment of everyday activities, and cause embarrassment in social and work situations.
If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, our expert practitioners are able to treat the condition quickly and easily using injections of Botulinum toxin or Liposuction. The treatment works by ‘freezing’ the sweat glands to prevent them from over-producing sweat secretions. Though the effects are temporary, they usually last for around 6 months at a time, meaning the procedure only needs performing twice a year to give you year-round results.
Thread veins are fine red veins that are visible under the skin, commonly occurring on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chest. Though some people are predisposed to developing thread veins, they can be caused, or made worse, by extremes of temperature, high blood pressure, stress and alcohol.
Thread vein treatment involves ‘shutting off’ the blood supply to the affected blood vessels, so they collapse and are harmlessly broken down and reabsorbed by the body. Our practitioners use the sclerotherapy technique to carry out this treatment, which involves a small injection of solution to stick the walls of the vein together. It is a very quick and simple technique, and in many cases only requires one treatment for the thread veins to disappear completely.
Dermaroller is a unique skin treatment that stimulates the body’s healing response to improve the condition of the skin. During Dermaroller treatment, super-fine needles are carefully rolled over the skin, penetrating the skin’s uppermost layers and stimulating its natural repair mechanism to produce extra collagen.
Collagen is the skin’s natural ‘building block’, highly abundant in young skin, so increased levels help to ‘plump up’ the skin, making Dermaroller an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles, indented scars caused by chickenpox or acne, and stretchmarks. Dermaroller can be safely performed on nearly all areas of the body, and usually requires 3 treatments to see the best results.
Many of us feel our skin looks dull from time to time. Dead skin cells can build up and sit on the skin’s surface, making skin lose its lustre and glow. If you feel that your skin would benefit from a ‘freshen up’, without needing to undergo more invasive treatment, microdermabrasion may be the treatment for you.
Microdermabrasion is a relaxing, deep exfoliating treatment which involves using a jet of tiny crystals combined with gentle suction to remove built-up dead skin cells and reveal fresh new skin underneath. It improves the texture and tone of the skin, and makes it more responsive to topical nutrient-rich creams immediately after treatment. Microdermabrasion is the ultimate facial – an excellent treatment for dry and dehydrated skin, fine lines, mild acne and blackheads/blocked pores.
If your skin has sun damage, fine wrinkles, pigmentation problems or acne, a series of skin peels can help slough off your surface skin and leave you with the fresher, healthier skin underneath.
There are many kinds of peels, using different solutions of different strengths, and when you come to Centre for Surgery for a skin peel, our expert practitioners will conduct a thorough examination of your skin type, condition and what you are looking to achieve, so we can tell you the best approach for you. Skin peels can be performed regularly to maintain the condition of your skin, and may also be combined with microdermabrasion for outstanding results.
Moles, lesions and cysts, while usually completely harmless, can bother some people if they are in a prominent position. Our skilled surgeons are able to remove all types of blemish using the latest techniques to minimise scarring.
Blemish removal is a simple procedure carried out under local anaesthetic, and usually only takes a few minutes. It may be carried out using cryotherapy, curettage and cautery or surgical excision – your surgeon will decide on the best method for you after examining the area carefully.
While the treatment does leave a small scar, this fades with time to become much more discreet than the original blemish.
