There’s a lot you can do to tighten lax, sagging skin on the faceand body without using a scalpel.
Cosmetic dermatologist Dr Penelope Tympanidis can guide you through the only treatments that have proven to be effective: the ones that combine technology with sophisticated manual biostimulation.
1. INJECTABLE BIOSTIMULATORS:
For an unbelievable lifting effect, radio frequencies are combined with substances that act as biostimulators by triggering the fibroblasts in order to produce new collagen. Dr Tympanidis injects special fillers (e.g. Sculptra) that act as a bio-activator and extremely powerful collagen stimulator. This treatment stimulates your own collagen, allowing tissue to volumize gradually. Over time, the Polylactic Acid dissipates as your own tissue, with natural collagens, takes its place. Collagen biostimulation fillers cover such a broad range of aesthetic enhancement from intensive anti-ageing and regeneration to softening gaunt features in athletes or people with low BMI due to genetics or illness. They reverse the ageing process by revolumizing the tissues of the face and neck, and firms and tightens the skin.
2. COLLAGEN INDUCTIONTHERAPY THROUGH MICRONEEDLING AND MESOTHERAPY:
Microneeedling uses tiny needles to stimulate the fibroblasts so that they produce collagen. Dr Tympanidis applies the treatment on the face, neck and décolletage, and in areas of the body such as hands,knees and abdomen. When it comes to local fat deposits (arms, abdomen,buttocks and thighs), skin tightening is assisted by mesotherapy sessions that tighten the skin and melt the fat as well. For cellulite and resistant fat, she uses a combination of PPC(phosphatidylcholine) also known as lecithin and award-winning EGF (epidermal growth factors). The lecithin dissolves the fat cell walland causes fat reduction. The growth factors and peptides present in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen so that the dermis is strengthened and the appearance of cellulite and loose skin is reduced.
3. THE RADIOFREQUENCY SOLUTION:
The essence of a radiofrequency procedure is to provide a deep,focused action where it matters without causing irritation, redness and burns which can occur when the surface of the skin is affected. The treatment gives you tight, rejuvenated and invigorated skin on both the surface and in the deeper subcutaneous layers. The overall effect of the therapy is supported by the stimulation of collagen fibres, the ‘building columns’ of the skin. The better the condition of these fibres, the younger your skin will look.
