Non- surgical face lifting: PDO threads

03/05/2018 at 14:38:43
The most common indication for a PDO threadlift in my practice is for lifting the jowls and the ideal patient is female, in their forties with mild to moderate laxity of the tissue.
 
PDO threads are inserted into the face, to internally ?zip lock? the tissues into position. The threads are not visible or palpable and dissolve gradually over 6 months, having stimulated collagen to fix the tissues over that time period.
 
The procedure is a much easier alternative to a facelift, being much quicker to perform, with much less downtime. 
 
Dr Alison Duncan is an experienced female doctor whe has practised cosmetic medicine for 13 years.  She works at two clinics in Frampton on Severn in Gloucestershire, and Swindon, Wiltshire. 
Opening times are  Monday to Friday 10-6 with some Saturday morning appointments.

Threadlifting

06/03/2018 at 11:25:33 | by Dr Alison Duncan
I love doing threadlift procedures, because of the results they produce. A subtle, fresh and younger face, jaw and neckline can be possible, just by zip locking the lower layers of the face. if you ever pull your cheeks up when looking at yourself in the mirror, then this is the treatment for you.
 
i have trained in techniques such as Aptos threads, Contour threadlift, Happy Lift and Silhouette Lift over the past 10 years. But the best as far as I am concerned, are PDO threads, which I have been using for the last year. Polydioxanone threads have been used for the past 30 years in tissue engineering and surgery. It is the type of material that is used for stitching wounds in hospitals, so SAFE.
 
PDO threads can create facial rejuvenation, anti-ptosis  and lipolysis. Skin remodelling occurs due to the production of more capillaries, more fibroblasts and less fat cells.
 
The procedure can be combined and enhanced with PRP ( platelet rich plasma), Botox, Mesotherapy, and Aqualyx. It is also a procedure that can be topped up every few years , as a maintenance  treatment. 
I Like the 5 point face lift as taught by Dr Jacques Otto. It is the simplest and kindest way to give the uplift that we all want, with only one tiny incision by the ear, which heals really quickly. After some days of swelling and possible bruising, you'll see your face taking shape beautifully. I've had it done, so I'm very happy to recommend! 
 
The threads can be used for mid and lower face, brow and neck. 
 
This procedure is is performed by Dr Alison Duncan at both of her clinics in Frampton on Severn, Gloucestershire and Swindon, Wiltshire.



Facial peels

24/03/2016 at 09:48:48 | by Dr Alison Duncan
The VI peel and VI peel acne represent the next generation of chemical exfoliant unlike any others you may have experienced. It is comfortable to have applied, which is a huge improvement on the acute severe burning you experience with 20-30% TCA peels. It is convenient, with peeling occurring through the 3rd to 6th days after treatment. You go home with a lovely after care pack, too.
 
VI peel, contains five acids, and TCA is one of them. It also has phenolic acid, the strongest acid peel currently used in aesthetics, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, and ascorbic acid. With all of those ingredients and the comfort afforded by the phenol, it is the best peel I use. It gives the results of a good deep peel, not that from shop bought or beauty salon glycolic acid peels.
 
It it is indicated for anti-aging, acne,  Hyperpigmentation, melasma, sunspots, mild acne scars, dull lifeless skin, it improves tone and texture and is suitable for sensitive skin types. Fine lines and wrinkles improve, with the skin appearing smoother. Up to 71% of patients report such. The collagen content of the skin is increased which gives a suppleness to the skin.
 
The radical thing about VI Peel and s that it can be safely used over the eyelids! We all have fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes that we want to improve. The peel can also be used on neck, décolleté, hands.
 
i've has the VI peel twice and can vouch for it's effectiveness and comfort. There is no way I would go back to pure TCA which is barbaric, less are, and cannot be used around the eyes out over the eyelids. It is safe to apply over the neck and décolleté which are prone to "catching" with TCA . Would highly recommend this peel even for the scariest of patients!
 
 



Juvederm Ultra

24/03/2016 at 09:46:14 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Juvederm Ultra is a range of smooth consistency gels made from hyaluronic acid- a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Dr Alison Duncan at Medical Cosmetic Service uses this product as the main filler in her clinics, because of the smooth, natural look it gives and the fact that it contains local anaesthetic which aids comfort of the injections.
 
Juvederm Ultra has good longevity, with 75% of patients maintaining an improvement for up to one year. Juvederm Ultra will instantly redefine your lips, smooth away your facial wrinkles and restore your skin's volume. It provides a smooth natural look and feel. You will notice the results yourself, but no one will know!
 
i always offer numbing cream with my filler treatments; I don't endorse the no pain, no gain philosophy. I definitely advise against taking alcohol and aspirin/ ibuprofen several days before treatment, to minimise the risk of bruising. Antihistamine helps to reduce any puffiness experienced with lip injections, and arnica pillules do help to reduce the risk of bruises.
 
The treatment is always preceded by a full medical consultation, and you are reassured that a qualifies doctor is doing the treatment at Medical Cosmetic Service clinics.
