Consultations to Address Loss of Volume & Sagging Skin

* Individual results may vary.

Specialist dermatologist, Dr Ritu at Platinum Dermatology uses treatments to rejuvenate a patient’s appearance without surgery. Dr Ritu can correct facial wrinkles, furrows, and other signs of natural ageing.*

Of the broad range of aesthetic services we provide at our cosmetic dermatology practice, none have given patients more satisfaction than treatments that address volume loss and sagging skin.

We want you to have the facts on this valuable aesthetic treatment so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not it’s right for you.

What Can We Do?

Treatments can restore volume and fullness to your face, creating a natural-looking, more youthful appearance. They are an excellent non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will*

  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Soften facial creases
  • Erase facial wrinkles
  • Plump thin lips

Is This Treatment Right for You?

Treatments are ideal for people who have begun to experience the first signs of premature ageing and want to reverse the process. They’re also excellent for patients who are looking tired with sagging at the corners of the mouth or who want to correct minor deformities in the nose as an alternative to nose surgery.

Treatments are not for everyone. They are not recommended for pregnant women or women who are breast-feeding. People with acne are another exception. Acne sufferers should address their acne first, as skin conditions increase the risk of infection.

If you are generally in good health and have realistic expectations about how treatments can improve your appearance, you might be an excellent candidate for facial rejuvenation at Platinum Dermatology.

What to Expect Before, During, & After Treatment

The journey to facial rejuvenation begins with an evaluation. Dr Ritu will examine the appearance of your skin to determine the appropriate treatment, and discuss whether additional treatments should be part of your facial rejuvenation. Based on the examination and your goals, she will determine exactly how to proceed. She will map out the treatment sites to ensure that your treatment yields the best possible results.

To prepare your skin for treatment, an antibacterial agent is applied to the area to be treated. This cleans your skin and guards against infection.

At the end of your treatment, our team will clean away any guiding marks on your face. That’s it. Some treatment results are instant, and you can return to work or play right away.

Possible Risks and Complications

Cold sores can be triggered by treatment, so we ask patients at Platinum Dermatology whether or not they’re prone to cold sores during their consultation so we can prescribe medications to minimise this risk. Another common risk is infection at the treatment site, but that risk can be removed by carefully following post-treatment advice.

Other health problems related treatments are rare, although some treatments can trigger allergic reactions including redness, itching, and swelling.
