This drive towards more natural-looking results was one of the key takeaways from The Face Conference, the United Kingdom’s Premier medical aesthetic conference as well as one of the most prolific in the world. The phenomenon was also listed as a top trend at yet another global symposium, last year’s Aesthetic & Anti-ageing Medicine World Congress (AMWC) held in Monte Carlo. It was here that an international survey among doctors attending the conference, including Skin Renewal’s founder, Dr Maureen Allem, revealed that 85% of patients undergoing any kind of aesthetic treatment desire a result that’s striking yet subtle.Naturally does it
As an aesthetic doctor, I can confirm that the majority of my patients don’t necessary want to look younger. Instead, they want to celebrate every life stage with confidence. Fortunately, the desire for more natural-looking beauty is perfectly in line with Skin Renewal’s “you but better” ethos.
One of the many ways we help our patients look refreshed as opposed to re-worked is via dermal fillers and botulinum toxin applied via the MD Codes™
method. The method involves injecting in a way that takes all the patients features into account, not just the initial concern, and can lay a foundation that may help prevent the need for more invasive procedures later on. The result is very natural, yet it can make a huge difference and improve your confidence in leaps and bounds!
Another popular non-invasive way we can ensure our patients look better for longer is via the use of PDO threads
. These medical-grade dissolvable sutures, if strategically placed, can create an immediate lift. It’s a brilliant solution to sagging brows and jowls and can even be used to perform a non-surgical nose job. Better yet, while the sutures eventually dissolve, their effects can linger because their very placement stimulates the creation of new collagen. You’ll never look tight, pinched or pulled - just naturally refreshed! The bottom line
Today, thanks to innovations in aesthetic medicine, patients can benefit from an array of incredibly effective yet non-invasive treatments. These can help them delay unnecessary ageing as well as enhance what exists to ensure they only ever look refreshed as opposed to overdone. Better yet, starting sooner rather than later may also delay the desire for traditional surgery later on.
