Time for action as we age
The natural ageing process can bring with it a multitude of annoying changes in both our looks and how we feel. Not only do we start to notice that our bodies may develop some aches and pains and we perhaps can’t run around as much as we did when we were in our twenties, but we may also start to notice some not-so-welcome changes to our facial features too!

There are various areas of the face that can start to show our age. For example, our bone density begins to decrease, the tissue which supports our skin also starts to thin and the upper layers of our skin can start to lose laxity, hydration and that youthful glow, leaving lines and wrinkles and a dry and dull appearance.

It’s at this point that we may want to take action and slow down the hands of time, before they catch up with us altogether!

The ageing process can be sped up by environmental factors and lifestyle choices, such as pollution, excessive sun-exposure, smoking and alcohol consumption. However, whether you have a less than healthy lifestyle or whether you eat a perfectly nutritious diet, get lots of exercise and as importantly, rest well; don’t smoke or partake too excessively in alcohol; the natural ageing process WILL start to take its effect and this is something that some of us wish to delay as much as we can.

At Face Matters in Chester, Dr. Gabi and the team are passionate about delivering effective aesthetic treatments which will bring you natural-looking results that complements the age that you are. We are not focused on making a 60-year-old look 30. This is simply unrealistic and could, potentially make you look older than your years! Instead, we focus on giving you back that youthful glow where your friends will notice you are looking fresh and revitalised, but not necessarily know what you have done or how you have done it!

There are a variety of treatments that we offer at Face Matters, which can subtly lift and rejuvenate the skin, encourage the replenishment of substances like Collagen, Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid, which all start to deplete as we age and which are responsible for healthy, plump and youthful skin.

Dermal fillers can be a great way to regain the volume which can be lost in the temples, cheeks and lower face and techniques and products now allow for some stunning results. The face can be instantly lifted and hollows can be naturally filled, smoothing the contours and bringing a youthful bounce back to the skin. Results can last months and there are so many new and innovative techniques that dermal fillers are growing more and more popular as an alternative to more invasive, surgical treatments.

Wrinkle-smoothing injections (or Botox as they are more commonly known) are perfect for dynamic lines such a forehead lines, crow’s feet and even smooth out and round the jawline. The treatment takes a few minutes, takes effect in a couple of days to a week and can last up to 6 months! There is no downtime with the treatment, making it a perfect choice if you don’t wish to spend days, if not weeks indoors after a treatment.

PRP (platelet rich plasma) utilises your own cells to be re-injected in to the skin. PRP encourages new collagen growth and is a fantastic regenerator for skin tissues. Encouraging healing it acts to naturally smooth out and revitalise the skin. PRP is growing in popularity and can be used alone or in combination with both dermal fillers and wrinkle-smoothing injections to treat the signs of ageing, holistically.

Dr. Gabi is an expert in all three treatments mentioned above and will work hard to create a bespoke treatment plan with either one stand-alone treatment or a combination, delivering the best possible results for your individual needs. With Face Matters on your side, you can face another decade head on, knowing we are taking all the right steps together to create the most beautiful you, always.
