There are now new ways to lift and firm the face without having to resort to surgery. The world of aesthetic treatments has moved on greatly during the past 15 years. The forward momentum has brought many positive innovations to existing treatments.
WHEN IT ALL HEADS SOUTH!
For those of us who can’t face the knife, a Thread Lift could be the alternative. Facial thread lifts provide ‘immediate’ results, that continue to improve over 3 months and are scalpel-free!
PDO collagen stimulating threads improve areas that in the past have been very difficult to treat without resorting to surgery, areas such as a slack jaw line and a saggy, lined neck. The threads are fully biodegradable, dissolving over a 2-9 month period, with the results lasting 2-3 years!
Due to the way the threads are placed in the skin, and the collagen stimulating properties of the PDO Threads, treatment effects are:
- Lifting and tightening of the skin
- Rejuvenation of the skin
- Smoothing of wrinkles
- Narrowing of pores

WHEN YOUR EYES AGE
Anti-wrinkle treatments are still the best for lines at the sides of the eyes, and frown lines in-between brows, and if done well, can open the eyes and create a natural but fresher more youthful look to the upper face.
This natural look is achieved by artfully injecting the face to avoid the ‘frozen look’. Our practitioner Karen Lockett is a master of this treatment. She explains that anti wrinkle treatments can be delivered providing great results while still keeping expression.
WHEN YOUR CHEEKS SAG
Dermal fillers become your skin support! Pillow faces and overinflated lips are a thing of the past at the Mayhill.
As with anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers should also be about ‘less is more’, keeping effects subtle & natural, rather than ‘pumping up’ with excessive volume.
Karen explains that dermal fillers, positioned subtly in the mid-face, help to lift and reposition the cheeks providing a more youthful look. We can also use these dermal fillers around the mouth to provide support and soften lines; we use products such as Teosyal, Restylane or Juvederm.
Karen was awarded the prestigious title of Best Mobile Practitioner in the UK at the 2012/2013 Aesthetic Awards. She is registered with the NMC and a member of the Royal College of Nursing and is available for free initial consultation at the Mayhill.
