Facial rejuvenation treatment plans available now

Aesthetics is the medical specialty that describes the practise of all non-surgical cosmetic and skin treatments.

Facial rejuvenation is the term used to describe treatments aimed at combating the natural ageing process, and some of the associated factors that affect your skin. As your skin gets older, you may start to notice wrinkles, deep lines, and/or discolouration. With advancements in medical-grade skincare and non-surgical treatments, you don’t have to simply put up with this.

Take back control and enhance your own natural beauty at Mount Alvernia by seeing our specialist Aesthetics consultant for advice and treatment at your convenience.

With personalised treatment plans based on your specific skin type and requirements, our consultant will work closely with you from start to finish, offering a range of treatments to bring you your desired results.

Treatments are aimed at addressing issues such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Age-related changes in the face including:
    • Loss of cheek volume
    • Sagging’ in the face or jawline
    • Dry and thinning lips
    • Nose to mouth lines (Nasolabial folds)
    • Mouth to chin lines (Marionette lines) sometimes described as a ‘sad’ appearance.
  • Lip asymmetry
  • Skin concerns including:
    • Rosacea
    • Acne
    • Acne from mask use (‘Maskne’)
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Uneven skin tone

With an emphasis on patient safety, you can be assured that all FDA-approved treatments have been tried and tested according to industry guidelines. It’s no wonder patients travel from all over Surrey and the South East for this expert advice and specialist care.

Dermal fillers can be applied to various aspects of your face, bringing rejuvenation, typically for around 12-18 months, depending on the type of filler used.

Micro needling uses the FDA-approved SkinPen, which stimulates collagen and elastin production in the dermal layer of your skin in order to promote natural healing and repair. This can help combat some of the classic signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, large pores, rough skin and fine lines, resulting in softer-looking, plumper, smooth skin.

Unlike some other aesthetic practitioners, our anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are all ordered through the hospital from reputable sources, ensuring products are officially-recognised, FDA Approved, safe, and in line with industry standards.

Treatments are always consultant-delivered, giving you added reassurance that you are in expert hands at all times. This also allows treatments to be flexible, with your consultant adapting according to your desires if you decide you want additional treatments along the way.

The aim of an initial consultation is for you and your consultant to discuss your concerns, ultimately putting together a treatment plan, based on your desired outcome and your consultant’s expectations.

An initial consultation is a vital part of any patient journey, and anyone coming for treatment will have a detailed discussion before any treatment is administered.

The initial consultation can be done virtually or in the clinic itself, depending on your preference. As part of the discussion, your consultant will wish to know:

  • What are your concerns?
  • How long have you had these concerns?
  • Have you tried anything in the past? Was it effective?
  • Are you currently on any other medication?

They will also ask for your medical history, as well as a physical examination to help analyse your skin type. For this reason, good lighting is advised if you are opting for a virtual consultation.

Treatment options will be focused on getting you optimal results, while also aligning with your budget requirements. If you are new to these kinds of treatments, you may wish to start off with just one type and see how you get on, and your consultant can always build up treatments over time.

All treatments will be explained to you in detail, and all possible options will be outlined, giving you the final say on how you wish to proceed.

Treatments may include in-clinic options such as anti-wrinkle treatments, micro-needling, or dermal fillers, some of which can be provided within your first consultation.

Some patients want to try medical-grade skin products rather than coming for in-clinic treatments, and your consultant can offer advice on the most appropriate products for your skin type. These products are often sought after to deal with issues such as break outs, dullness in skin tone, or to reduce the appearance of lines. These can be ordered during the consultation and delivered directly to your home address.

For in-clinic treatments, Mount Alvernia provides a comprehensive care package, with everything your consultant needs in order to give you optimal results efficiently. We also have excellent support from a dedicated nursing team, ensuring the highest standards of care at every step.

Whether you are coming for in-clinic treatments or receiving medical-grade skin products under the supervision of our renowned aesthetics consultant, the CQC registered Mount Alvernia offers patients in Guildford, Surrey and further afield an unparalleled level of expertise and care when addressing your beauty concerns.
