London (PRWEB UK) 20 December 2013
When most people consider non-surgical cosmetic treatments, they tend to think first of treatments relating to the face. This is the first area most clients attend to – trouble-shooting lines and wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead or around the lip area for fresher, younger looking skin.
However, Aesthetic Physician Dr Barbara Kubicka believes that concentrating solely on the face can create an incomplete and unnatural look. The delicate neck skin is adjacent to the face and just as visible, yet is often neglected, which can form a sharp contrast when the face is smooth yet the neck is loose and saggy. Indeed, some A-listers have even been photographed unflatteringly with suspiciously smooth facial skin contrasted against ageing neck skin.
That's why Dr Kubicka’s London-based ClinicBe advocates a more holistic approach, looking at the face, neck and décolletage together for a more holistic approach to anti-ageing treatments, designed to deliver the most natural-looking yet effective results for their patients.
Dr Barbara Kubicka MD explains:
“Rather than simply inject the most obvious lines and wrinkles, a better result can often be achieved by taking a wider look at the patient’s skin.
“A softer, more natural anti-ageing look can be achieved when we take full account of the client’s skin, rather than just focusing on the main issue of concern.
“The skin on the neck is particularly delicate and lacks the complex muscle support that we have on the face. It also tends to be neglected with sunscreen, moisturisation and professional skin treatments. Yet there are a number of options that can be very effective in smoothing, hydrating, lifting and tightening the skin in this area for a much improved appearance.”
ClinicBe® now offers a comprehensive range of treatments that are suitable for treating the neck area.
Firstly, Dr Kubicka has developed her own unique and exclusive treatment, the Neck and Jawline Programme. This combines an intensive programme of deep fillers to replenish volume beneath the skin’s surface together with Dermaroller microneedling which stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. The programme also includes chemical peels to exfoliate and buff the delicate skin for a smoother finish, encouraging new cells to form for a fresher glow. Finally, a home care regime of specialist products is supplied to complete the treatment. Results can be quite dramatic, offering a much safer, cheaper and gentler alternative to surgery.
For patients who do not require the full Programme, then a variety of other options are available. Dr Kubicka is particularly known for her use of mesotherapy injections, which can be particularly effective on the neck, nourishing and rejuvenating the skin from within.
IPL laser treatment is available as a new treatment, as the clinic has recently invested in the latest Intense Pulsed Light technology for skin tightening and rejuvenation.
Other options include chemical peels or PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy) – an advanced skin rejuvenation technique originally used for burns victims, that stimulates intensive healing processes for smoother skin.
Wrinkle relaxing injections may also be used where the patient has prominent neck bands. Sophisticated use of the injections can be used to soften the appearance of jowls and lift the lower face area for a more streamlined look.
Dr Kubicka is keen to stress that the solution must vary for each client:
“No two patients are the same and it is important to consider each as an individual before deciding on any treatment.”
“Although the neck skin is delicate and sensitive, Aesthetic Physicians have a great deal of choice about how to go about improving it. The most important principle is to include it in any rejuvenation work for a more holistic approach.”
A recent patient, Sophie, is typical of neck rejuvenation patients. She’d had horizontal lines on her neck since early twenties, but aged 45, she complained about loss of laxity and elasticity of her skin on neck. Facial anti-aging treatment made the neck problem even more noticeable. She says:
“Having been to several doctors who specialise in injectable cosmetic procedures, I finally have found the best in London.
“Not only does Dr Kubicka have a lot of experience, she uses all of the new products available. She has a gentle touch, resulting in pain free treatments, and creates a subtle and extremely natural look. She understands, as a woman, what women today want to look like.”
“I recently had a neck rejuvenation treatment...which has had amazing results.”
