Anti-wrinkle Treatments: anti-wrinkle treatments is an effective way to reduce dynamic lines on different parts of the face by relaxing the muscles in specific areas. Regular anti-wrinkle treatment can prevent the formation of wrinkles in treated areas. The effect of injections usually becomes apparent after 3-7 days and peaks at 2 weeks. Most treatments last 3-4 months but this varies depending on the area treated and the amount of units used. Areas treated include:

    • Frown line
    • Crows feet
    • Forehead lines
    • Bunny lines
    • Gummy smile
    • Lip flip
    • Facial slimming
    • Brow lift
    • Bruxism/tooth grinding and more.

Dermal Filler: dermal filler is a sterile gel that contain hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring product in the skin. It is injected under the skin to correct lines, wrinkles and folds and can be used to volumise and sculpt lips, cheeks and other contours of the face. The filler used by Dr Katey is Stylalge by Vivacy, which is designed and manufactured in France. It contains mannintol – a preservative which reduces the risk of an inflammatory reaction and may provide longer lasting effects. The effects of treatments can last 6-18 months but will vary from person to person and will depend on the product used, how much is injected and where it is injected. 

Dermapen 4: the Dermapen 4 is an award winning, revolutionary digitalised microneedling device. It is the world’s only microneedling system designed to treat all skin types and conditions using a range of dermaceuticals and meso-glide serums that deliver bio-compatible actives via a target delivery vehicle for amazing skin results. It can tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin and can be used for a number of skin conditions, including:

    • Sun damaged and ageing skin 
    • Fine lines and wrinkles
    • Acne
    • Acne scarring
    • Pigmentation
    • Melasma
    • Stretch marks
    • Rosacea
    • Scarring – post surgical
    • Enlarged pores/ Sebaceous hyperplasia
    • Skin sagging – (combine with PRP for best results)

 

A dermapen treatment, targeting your area of concern will be performed. The device delivers multiple tiny punctures to the surface of the skin, both oxygenating and producing an immune response and formation of new collagen. The punctures produced during treatment act as channels to deliver nourishing active ingredients deep within your skin to correct you concerns. This leaves tighter and firmer skin and will visibly reduce the appearance of scarring and pigmentation. This treatment can be performed safely on nearly every part of the body and can be performed on all skin types and tones, without the risk of side effects associated with fractional laser or heat inducing treatments.

A cooling mask infused with super hydrating ingredients is placed over the skin post needling then finishing off with a tinted cover recover means skin is glowing with minimal downtime.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments: the PRP is injected under the skin and then can combine with microneedling – “like a vampire facial, but on steroids”.

PRP is used for both cosmetic and medical reasons.

Process – your blood is collected on the day, spun at high speed in a centrifuge, then the platelet rich plasma (which is loaded with a much higher concentration of growth factors than your normal blood) is reinjected into the area of concern. Dr Katey uses a topical compounded anaesthetic cream to make this more comfortable.

The growth factors aid in tissue repair and rejuvenation. 

What can be treated: Osteoarthritis of the knee (evidence to support this), muscle, ligament and tendon injuries – including golfers and tennis elbow and Achilles tendonitis (not greatly supported by the evidence but works well for some people), fine lines, wrinkles and sun damaged skin.

It is recommended to have at least 3 treatments to get the maximal effect.

For skin rejuvenation we recommended to combine this with microneedling for the best results. One of the best non-surgical treatments for loose sagging skin under the chin and on the neck.

In the future she hopes to offer fat dissolving injections as well as treatments with PDO (Polydioxanone) mono threads.
