Gemma Montgomery skin offers the following treatments and you can read more about each one here. If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
The administration of Botulinum Toxin Type A is a very popular choice of treatment for lines and wrinkles to the upper face. Areas treated include lines to forehead, frown area and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Along with age and environmental factors, repeated expression using facial muscles causes the skin to crease over time, leading to lines and wrinkles. Weakening this muscular contraction with Botox® injections helps to soften these lines resulting in a more softer, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are temporary skin fillers used to treat lines and folds. The filler appears as a crystal clear gel and contains Hyaluronic Acid, a substance which your body naturally produces.
Injection is made underneath the skin at various depths, depending on the severity of the line or fold being treated. The gel is then injected in tiny amounts. This instantly lifts and plumps the lines and folds giving a more smooth and youthful appearance. Not only is it useful for lines and folds and adding lost volume through facial contouring, it can also be used for lip definition and enhancement.
Results are instant and last between 6 and 12 months depending on the area treated and individual lifestyle factors.
Examples of common areas treated include:
- Nose to mouth lines (Nasolabial folds)
- Peri-Oral lines (smokers lines)
- Lower lip to chin area – Marionettes (jowls)
- Replacing lost facial volume by contouring to cheek area
- Lip enhancement and definition
- Replacing lost hydration to hands, chest, neck and face
The Juvederm® range of fillers used are made with specially formulated (HA) hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in your skin and is temporary and biodegradeable. The Juvederm rangel contains anaesthetic for your added comfort.
Meso Injection Therapy
Meso therapy involves micro injections of Hyaluronic Acid being injected into the dermis of the skin. This infuses the skin at cellular level, adding moisture and hydrating the skin to give a more dewy and firmer appearance.
This painless and effective procedure can be given to face, neck, chest and hands.
Medical Grade Skin Peels
Injectable treatments treat the wrinkles, folds and contours, but do not address the overall appearance of the skin.
Medical skin peels are an excellent way to treat the complexion as a whole and enhance the results of other treatments. Medical peels are derived from fruits or synthetic acids. They aim to stimulate collagen production and increase cell turnover. Treatment can be performed to face, neck, chest and hands.
How medical peels help include :
- Improve the skin tone and texture
- Reduce pigmentation marks /sundamage
- Fine lines
- Improve radiance to dull sallow skin
Gemma Montgomery Aesthetics uses light and medium strength peels. At consultation it will be discussed which course or treatment is most suitable for you.
Genuine Dermaroller is advanced micro-medical skin needling. A procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier younger looking skin. Ideal for ageing sun-damaged skin, acne scars, facial decollete lines and wrinkles and fine stretch marks.
What does the procedure entail?
As a certified Genuine Dermaroller practitioner i will use the medical device to introduce thousands of microneedle columns into the skin. Each column penetrates into the dermis. The column closes rapidly enabling quick recovery of the skin. Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin 45 minutes prior to treatment for added comfort. The actual procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
How does regeneration take place?
After the procedure your body will start to repair and regenerate the skin naturally. Working below the surface, new collagen is formed, new skin cells generated with enhanced blood flow.
Remodelling and tightening of the skins architecture takes place.
It takes 6 weeks for the visible signs of regeneration and repair to be seen. This process continues over the following months, providing long lasting enhancement.
How many treatments are necessary?
Genuine Dermaroller can be done as a one off treatment. Ideally a course of 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results. This can be discussed at consultation.
Discounted rates are given for a course, which includes home care products.
Why Genuine Dermaroller?
You may of seen cheaper alternatives available on the internet. The risk this poses is purchasing a Non CE marked device. This means inferior needle quality, wrong needle length and roller design, causing extreme unnecessary trauma.
Genuine Dermaroller is manufactured in Germany. It is a CE device, which ensures that each dermaroller is strict quality and sterility validated, with precise needle and device design, made from surgical steel.
Can any practitioner perform Genuine Dermaroller?
No. Only practitioners who have undertaken the training with aestheticare can obtain and administer. All qualified practitioners are listed on the Genuine Dermaroller website.
After your treatment skin will look red, resembling moderate sunburn and may feel warmer and tighter than usual. This redness calms down after 24hrs. Makeup can be worn after 12 hrs, although mineral makeup can be worn if nescessary. Chiroxy cream is applied, along with a broadspectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen.
