Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments
Wrinkles and fine lines are a common part of ageing, but that doesn't mean we have to put up with them. At RPM Health Clinic we offer a variety of treatments and therapies to smooth out fine lines, improve the appearance of wrinkles and leave you looking and feeling younger and more hydrated with smooth, supple skin.
During our comprehensive, face-to-face consultation, we'll discuss all the methods available and decide on the best treatment for your skin type, concerns and requirements. We'll cover your medical history to identify any possible contraindications to treatment, before settling on a therapy plan that will be perfect for you.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment consisting of hyaluronic acid, a completely safe substance that naturally occurs in the body. Carefully and professionally administered by our experienced staff, they are an amazing way to give the skin a healthy, hydrated appearance, smoothing out fine lines and other signs of ageing, as well as restoring lost volume to areas of your face with long-lasting, natural-looking results.
You will be offered a local anaesthetic cream prior to treatment, which should take anywhere from 30-90 minutes and may be a bit uncomfortable but should not be painful.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
You may know PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy by its other name, the vampire facial. As the name suggests, the treatment uses your own blood to promote collagen production (a key component of skin healing) and give a firmer, smoother texture to the skin, with results lasting up to a year.
So how does it work?
Small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the blood. This is then re-injected into the targeted areas of your face or scalp as needed.
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Excessive sweating is an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition that affects around 3% of the UK population. It can have a serious effect on a sufferer’s working and social life.
Excessive sweating – or hyperhidrosis – can have a serious effect on a sufferer’s working and social life and many people simply avoid doing things they would otherwise love to do because they are too embarrassed about their sweating.
There are two main types of hyperhidrosis:
Focal hyperhidrosis is the more common type and involves excessive sweating of the hands, feet and underarms.
Generalised hyperhidrosis is much less common and affects the whole body. It is usually caused by another illness like diabetes, an underactive thyroid or an infection.
Bruxism (teeth griding)
Teeth grinding, known medically as bruxism can cause several painful concerns for those who suffer from them. As well as causing damage to the enamel of the teeth, teeth grinding can also cause muscle tension, leading to pain in the head and jaw. Teeth grinding occurs subconsciously, either when sleeping or as a result of bad habits, and can be exacerbated by stress, anxiety, smoking or alcohol.
Many teeth grinding treatments are designed to protect the teeth but do little to combat the muscle tension and the pains that it causes. This can help reduce persistent teeth grinding and can help patients preserve oral help, relieve pain in the head, ear, and jaw, and dramatically improve the quality of sleep.
Treatment repeated 2-3 times per year to maintain results.
