Revitalise and Rejuvenate Your Skin

Article by Dr Tracy Mountfordclair after vital

What can we do to rejuvenate the overall appearance and condition  of our skin in our 50s and beyond? We recently covered how to improve  decolletage  and hands where skin has become crepey, by using a non surgical aesthetic treatment.  This therapy can also be used in the same way to revitalise and restore the smoothness of the skin of the face in midlife.

What better way to illustrate this than sharing  the difference it has made to Clair who is an actress and stand-in for stars such as Sharon Stone and Annette Bening and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Clair’s story:

“I often get to see my face on the big screen, and believe me, that can be a depressing experience because my figure looked young, but my face didn’t match. I have very fair skin and growing up in California I got a lot of sun damage. I became lined and started to look drawn and tired, but I’d seen famous people who’d had surgery and they just looked unnatural. I visited cosmetic doctor Tracy Mountford who suggested a new treatment Restylane Vital®, which involves using a fine needle to inject a hyaluronic gel under the surface of the skin”.

It restored a dewy, youthful complexion

“I was so impressed with how the treatment restores a dewy, youthful complexion on my face that I decided to address the crepêyness on my neck and chest with the same product – the results were equally spectacular. Since then I decided to have a little muscle relaxant treatment to my frown lines and neck. This has not only helped smooth the frown lines but has alleviated my migraines – an added bonus! My neck also looks much tighter. My overall impression is that the result is soft and subtle, yet has enhanced my appearance no end. All my lines have softened, and I feel I look years younger”.

Scroll across the image below to see what a difference the skin revitalisation treatment made to Clair.

The Restylane Vital treatment

Hyaluronic acid is natural substance present in the skin which bonds with water molecules to retain moisture and plumpness.  A good example of this is Babies’ skin which is full of hyaluronic acid which gives those wonderful round cheeks.  But with age the  the hyaluronic acid  in the skin skin becomes more and more depleted  and  its overall quality is not as good.

The Restylane Vital treatment involves a series of microinjections of pure hyaluronic acid gel, which closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid in your own skin. The treatment is not painful as it follows the application of an anaesthetic cream for at least 30 minutes beforehand. 

To achieve the maximum results the treatment needs to be carried three times 2 to 3 weeks apart. The results start to show immediately but significant improvement occurs up to 6 weeks after the course has finished. 

The cost for a course of three treatments of Restylane Vital® starts from around £550 per area treated (face, hands or décolletage). The benefits last for around six to nine months and you can maintain your glowing skin with a single annual top-up treatment. 

Clair says..
‘I am absolutely delighted with the results of all of the treatments. The procedures have gently tightened my skin to give a fresher, more youthful appearance. Restylane Vital has done wonders for my cheeks – it has hydrated my skin, making it dewy whilst plumping it up, and my neck looks years younger’.
