Smoker’s Lines

Smoker’s Lines are not exclusive to smokers but much more prevalent in them due to the expression required to smoke a cigarette i.e. pouting.

The alternative and probably nicer term is “Kiss Lines”. These lines are above the upper lip and certainly add years to one’s appearance. Static kiss lines (lines which appear without the need to pout) are best treated with dermal filler or even a combination of filler and BTX-A.

However, some excellent results can be seen with skin peels, radio-frequency skin tightening and skin resurfacing with treatment with Dermapen™. Dr Patel will advise on your best option of management after a facial assessment and devise a personalised

FAQ

Dermal fillers are excellent for superficial to deep lines and volume loss; the results are instant and truly impressive. One treatment can take many years off your appearance. You can also add subtle shape and volume to your lips using fillers. More advanced assessment and techniques can also allow for nose and chin correction and other adjustments to facial structure and features. There are many different fillers on the market, but Dr Patel uses only NON-permanent fillers and only the most reputable and trusted brands e.g. Radiesse Plus®. Treatments are generally quite comfortable and very well tolerated by Patients.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in one or two days so is constantly replaced—as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease. Hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic treatments but is also used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement, as well as eye surgery.

Yes, the aesthetic results are immediate. You’ll see the results as soon as your appointment is over. However, please note that with volume replacement, the final result takes up to 6 weeks to develop. With some of the more advanced fillers, collagen production will also be stimulated; thus your new natural collagen will be around long after the filler has been broken down.

Chemical peels resurface the skin by the application of various forms of acid to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top layer of skin and over time improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.

Treatments will vary dependent on the type of peel chosen and the depth of the peel. The skin is first prepped and then the selected peel is applied and left on the skin typically from 3-10 minutes depending on patient comfort. It is normal to feel a mild tingling and heat sensation, this will normally subside after a few minutes. Some peels are self neutralizing so will be left on the skin after leaving the clinic to safely neutralize on their own in time.

Unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, which burns the outer layer of skin, this new generation of treatment does minimal damage to the outer skin layer and thus minimises redness and downtime. The ablative element of the laser happens at a deep-skin layer and uses heat to stimulate collagen production. This triggers the body’s natural healing process to stimulate growth of new healthy skin tissue.
