Collagen stimulating treatments

Our skin can lose its lustre and tone when it is subjected to environmental factors and lifestyle influences. The skin loses its elasticity over time and fine lines and wrinkles can form. Juvederm Hydrate® is a hyaluronic acid-based product which counters the effects of aging and damage caused by the sun and smoking. It restores and replenishes the skin on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in a healthy, natural glow.

The procedure takes about 30 minutes, during which Miss Chantrey injects very small amounts of Juvederm Hydrate® into the areas to be treated. Juvederm Hydrate® provides deep hydration and helps to ‘hold’ moisture under the skin to create a radiant complexion. Skin will appear firmer, smoother and more vibrant. Along with healthy lifestyle measures and skincare, these treatments 2 or 3 times per year can maintain glowing skin for years .

Miss Chantrey is the industry expert in the use of Juvederm Hydrate®. She has demonstrated its use on Channel 4’s ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ and ITV’s ‘Morning Surgery’. Her expertise in the product has been quoted in Tatler magazine and The European Aesthetics Guide. All treatments performed by Miss Chantrey are to enhance and preserve the wellbeing of her patients. She aims to ensure optimum, natural-looking results to improve long-term self-esteem.

Mesotherapy is a treatment Miss Chantrey often recommends for those who wish to improve their skin’s radiance, firmness and vitality. It is an excellent way to achieve the subtle beauty preservation for which we all strive. It is a celebrity and industry secret – giving beautiful, glowing skin.

The treatment involves multiple micro-injections of a vitamin & hyaluronic acid cocktail under the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production and improves the elasticity, pigmentation and texture of the skin. It replaces the essential vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid that is lost with lifestyle factors and ageing. Miss Chantrey usually combines her mesotherapy with customised micro-peels that keep the skin highly conditioned.  A regular course of treatment consists of 4-5 weekly sessions, followed by 2, 3 monthly sessions. Patients love the results and attend for maintenance every 3-6 months to keep the skin refined and bright.

Miss Chantrey has been recognised as the key expert in  Dermaroller™ techniques. She has been invited to demonstrate the technique many times including: Channel 4’s ‘Embarrassing Bodies’, ITV ‘Morning Surgery’ and for the media at The Members Club of The Ivy. Dermaroller™ is a safe, highly effective technique used to treat patients with a variety of skin conditions. It is excellent for scar repair, particularly those caused by acne, trauma, surgery or burns. It can also help with stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaroller™ is an excellent way to restore the skin’s natural scaffolding, boosting skin elasticity and lift.

A topical anaesthetic cream is applied one hour before to the areas that are to be treated. Miss Chantrey uses a variety of roller devices with micro-needles which create tiny punctures in the skin. This action activates the skin’s fibroblasts cells, which, in turn, stimulates collagen production. The aim is to encourage repair and rejuvenation of the skin for a fresher and smoother complexion, whilst dramatically reducing the appearance of scars and imperfections.

Patients undergoing this procedure can expect redness of the treated areas for up to 24 hours afterwards. To get the optimum results, a course of 3 to 4 sessions, 6 weeks apart, is recommended. The time left between sessions allows the skin cells to grow, boosts blood supply to the treated areas and maximises collagen production for a natural and more youthful look.
