Hair loss or thinning hair
Thinning hair or hair loss is annoying, frustrating and distressing, perhaps evenmore so for women than for men. Alopecia androgenetica, the most common form of hair loss, is a predominantly genetic condition, but the idea that thinning hair is a guy problem is simply wrong. Forty percent of people who experience temporary or long-term hair loss are women.
Mesotherapy as a treatment for hair loss is still relatively unknown, but is being used more and more, with proven positive results. It is an approved and completely safe therapy without the side effects of most hair growth medications, light therapy and hair transplants. The treatments consist of (virtually painless) application of a hair growth stimulant to the scalp by means of a meso-injector.
Cosmetic Clinics uses XL Hair, a specially developed formula with hyaluronic acid as its main component, supplemented with a mix of effective, revitalising and hair growth-stimulating ingredients such as vitamins and minerals. This extraordinary cocktail activates growth of the hair follicles in areas where they are still existent but inactive, which appear as spots where the hair is thin. The meso-injector treatment also boosts blood circulation and general hydration of the scalp, stimulating dormant hair follicles to become active again and to start producing more and new hair.
For optimal results, we recommend an XL Hair therapy protocol consisting of 6 sessions in our clinic, spread out over 8 weeks, supplemented by home treatment with a special spray for 12 to 24 weeks. The sessions in our clinic will last approximately 20 minutes, after which you can go about your daily life as usual. During the first 8 hours after treatment, we advise against washing your hair, using the sauna or the gym, and strenuous physical exercise. Also, it is best not to dye your hair in the first 48 hours after treatment.
Wrinkles do not form simply because we age. Factors including genetics, skin type, lifestyle, diet, alcohol and nicotine use, and exposure to UV radiation as well as lack of sleep, exercise and oxygen all play their part in skin ageing and deterioration.
Forehead lines are as much the result of sagging skin as of facial expressions. Raising your eyebrows in surprise or concentrating, squinting or frowning – basically every expression in which you use your eyebrows eventually results in horizontal ridges forming on the forehead. Over the years, elastin and collagen in the skin break down, causing the structure of the dermis to gradually lose its ability to stay smooth and firm. The older you get, the deeper and more visible these lines become.
Forehead lines can be treated effectively with botox, fillers and skin boosters.
For the wrinkles in the center of the forehead, our first choice recommendation would be reducing the muscle movement by treating them with botox.
For deeper lines, a treatment with fillers would be an excellent addition in order to smoothen out the skin.
Wrinkles will be less likely to return after the skin is firmed up with skin boosters. This powerful skin rejuvenation therapy stimulates the biological functions of collagen and elastin in the skin, giving skin folds less chance to form, and giving you a healthy, younger-looking skin with a fresh glow.
Loss of volume at the temples
The natural aging process causes all kinds of changes to our face. As we age, the temples lose fat and begin to narrow, shifting the balance of the face downward. Volume loss here contributes to the appearance of drooping and sagging cheeks and eyes, a look often referred to as a sunken face.
Volume can be returned to sunken temples very safely by using a filler, giving the facial contours their youthful appearance again. For a better and more natural effect, the area just above the eyebrows can be dealt with almost effortlessly in one and the same treatment.
Restoring volume to the temples can be carried out either as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with treating the cheek bones and/or the cheeks, or even as part of a liquid facelift, improving the overall volume of the entire face.
