Treatments for Fine Lines, Forehead Wrinkles and Facial Folds

in Edinburgh

Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated in so many ways – it depends on what other issues my client presents with as to how I tackle them. Dermaforce – which combines radiofrequency and microneedling in one machine –  is my go to. Considered the gold standard of skin tightening, radiofrequency uses energy waves to heat the deep layers of the skin whilst microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. The body counteracts this damage by producing elastin and collagen which has a plumping and smoothing effect.

Another route for fine lines and wrinkles is mesotherapy in which microscopic amounts of hyaluronic acid and a multivitamin solution are injected into the skin. As well as adding hydration and nourishment into the skin, mesotherapy works on cellular level getting cells to operate optimally.

For skin that is more heavily lined and where nasolabial folds (more commonly known as smile or laughter lines) and lax jawlines are starting to emerge, I tend to turn to HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound). This uses energy waves – in the form of ultrasound energy – to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. It heats up the skin to cause damage – and thus repair – at a cellular level. With this technology, it’s a case of the greater the skin laxity the better the result, so I use it more readily for my clients in their sixties. For anyone with medical contradictions which means they’re unable to have anything with an electric current, I use my microneedling pen.

Elizabeth’s treatments are available on their own or as part of a bespoke skincare journey


1. Your Consultation

Every Elizabeth M skincare journey starts with an hour-long new client consultation. During this appointment Liz will examine your skin and have an in-depth discussion about your challenges and goals.

Consultations can be booked as standalone appointments or in conjunction with an introductory facial. In addition, all clients will leave with a skincare prescription and a treatment plan.


2. Your Introduction

Whilst everyone’s skin is different, and as such no two treatment plans will be the same, all Elizabeth M skincare journeys begin with an intensive series of introductory appointments. Liz will often see or speak to you multiple times a week during this phase in order to get your skin on the right track. She also likes to see how it responds to different products and treatments. At this point Liz will supply you with all the products and supplements needed for your personalised at-home regime. It’s at this stage she may also refer you to complimentary therapists if extra support is needed for your skincare journey.


3. Your Transformation

Once your skincare journey is underway Liz will see you as often as your treatment plan dictates. As skincare journeys are highly personal – and may also be tweaked as they progress – this will vary from month to month and from face to face. However, all clients can look forward to a minimum of two 90-minute bespoke facials per month. Liz remains on call for clients during her business hours throughout this time and will also be on hand to refill skincare prescriptions as required.
