Beautify yourself

This week we want to talk about treatments that are all about you – where we give you a helping hand, but your body does the work to make you look like the best version of yourself.

While dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective and here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic in London we believe we can offer a skillful, subtle outcome with these aesthetic treatments, for truly natural results it’s time to go organic. In recent years, the trend has been towards developing treatments that harness the body’s own marvellous ability to heal itself.

Skin needling

Dermaroller is the original DIY anti-ageing treatment – although by ‘DIY’, we mean your skin does all the hard work for you.

The Dermaroller treatment involves using a roller covered with tiny microneedles that is passed over the skin repeatedly, creating hundreds of tiny punctures in the skin. This process triggers a wound-healing response in the skin, stimulating new collagen production and resulting in a plumper, more youthful appearance.

If you want to give your skin an additional helping hand, you can combine Dermaroller treatment with various cosmeceutical serums, for an accelerated effect. Microneedling can be performed on many different areas of the body, including the often tricky to treat hands and decollete.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy

Also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ or ‘Dracula Lift’, PRP therapy uses your own blood to achieve a rejuvenating effect.

When you come in for PRP treatment here at Joney de Souza Aesthetic Clinic in London, a small amount of your blood is extracted and placed in a centrifuge. The platelet-rich plasma is then separated out and injected back in to your face. It can be injected in several micro-injections, to create an overall more youthful tone and texture to the skin, or deeper into individual lines and wrinkles, like a filler.

The platelet-rich plasma is full of growth factors, which stimulate collagen production and fight the signs of ageing.

If you want a job done properly…

Here at Dr Joney De Souza Aesthetic Clinic, based in the centre of London, we believe in employing the full arsenal of aesthetic treatments, so if you’d prefer not to have anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers, but still want to look younger, PRP and Dermaroller offer very viable alternatives.
