After age 20, your body produces one percent less collagen every year and your elastin drops. Those two proteins provide the skin’s structural support and elasticity. Their decline opens the door for wrinkles, creases, lines, sagging, and other signs of aging.
At Avané Dermatology Clinic boasting of one of the best dermatologists in Nairobi, Dr Pranav Pancholi, we can help your skin fight the signs of aging to make you look youthful again.
Neuromodulators (one of which is Botox) are used to stop muscles from contracting by injecting Botox into the skin in tiny doses to temporarily paralyzes a muscle. On the upper third of the face — the expressive area— muscles contract when we perform ordinary movements like frowning and squinting.
These muscle contractions eventually form wrinkles on the skin’s surface. Botox temporarily blocks the nerve messages to the muscle which stops these muscles from contracting to prevent wrinkles. This effect usually lasts for about 4 – 6 months. We usually customize which neuromodulator is best for each of our patients.
Dermal Fillers in Nairobi, Kenya
We offer Dermal fillers in Nairobi, Kenya where we “fill” wrinkles and creases from below, pushing the skin back upward. While some fillers are used to add volume to sunken cheeks other fillers are used to lift sagging skin in order to counter-act the effects of gravity on the skin as we age.
We offer numerous fillers including those from the Juvederm and Restylane family of products, as well as Radiesse, Belotero, and Sculptra. Each filler has different characteristics, which can improve the appearance of different areas of your face. Again, we always customize which filler is best for each of our patients.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on the face and neck, and smooth the skin on the chest. Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh new collagen. Some of our patients see an initial effect immediately after their treatment, however the most noticeable results appear over the following 2 – 3 months, as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin. While Ultherapy is a non-invasive alternative to a facelift, there is zero recovery or downtime.
