The best non-surgical procedures to combat ageing

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation is a great alternative for people who want to achieve a younger, fresher looking face without the risks associated with plastic surgery.

Non-surgical procedures not only produce outstanding anti-ageing results but also have less recovery time and are cheaper than going under the knife.

The best non-surgical procedure to combat the signs of ageing are injectables. The type of injectable you get depends on what sign of ageing you are trying to address.

Injectables can treat sagging skin, expression lines, loss of facial volume and wrinkles.

At Zen Medispa, we offer the right injectable for your anti-ageing needs including dermal fillers, wrinkle treatment, double chin treatments and fat assisted stem cell transfer.

Dermal Fillers

Loss of volume in the face can leave skin looking unhealthy, sunken and gaunt. Due to ageing, the natural filler substances in our skin decreases production resulting in less defined contours and sagging skin.

This is where dermal fillers come in. To combat this loss of the natural filler substance you can inject filler into these hollow areas on the face to achieve plump, younger looking skin.

Injectables are used to temporarily replace volume and give instant, short-term results. They are usually used on the cheeks, temples and lips or under the eyes.

Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid gel, which is a natural sugar that is already present in the human body.

Once injected into the skin, the gel attracts water which instantly plumps up the skin and smoothes out surface wrinkles giving the skin a rejuvenated, enhanced and natural looking facial feature.

Dermal filler is also often used on more stubborn wrinkles.

Wrinkle treatment

Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of ageing. Also known as expression lines, wrinkles are formed after years of repeated expressions create new folds and creases in the skin.

Unfortunately, as we get older, our ability to produce collagen reduces and the appearance of fine lines becomes more pronounced. The areas that usually fall victim to wrinkles first are around the eyes, at the sides of the mouth, on the forehead and in between the eyebrows.

Luckily our injectable wrinkle treatment can help reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily blocking nerve impulses sent to the facial muscles, which helps them relax and softens the lines that muscle contractions cause.

Double chin treatment

As you get older you may experience skin sagging under the chin giving the appearance of a double chin, medically known as submental fat. Double chins are a stubborn side effect of ageing and often appear regardless of diet and exercise habits.

Double chins can ruin the overall look of your face, adding unnecessary kilos and making your face look rounder.

Luckily, cosmetic injectables have advanced enough to be able to target this area of fat under the chin.

A series of deoxycholic acid (DA) injections are administered under topical anaesthetic. DA is a natural substance in the body that breaks down dietary fat.

Patients usually see results after 2-4 treatments taken at least 6 weeks apart.

Fat assisted stem cell transfer

Another alternative way to treat loss of volume caused by ageing is fat assisted stem cell transfer. This procedure uses the regenerative properties of stem cells extracted from body fat, to rejuvenate the look of the skin.

Liposuction is performed on an area of the body under local anaesthetic to harvest fat. This fat is then treated by a special device to collect the stem cells.

The stem cells are then recombined with the fat and reinjected into areas of the face that require rejuvenation.
