This facial has been a big hit among the over 50s at her clinic. The treatment usually lasts between 60-90 minutes and begins with a light fruit acid applied to the skin to cleanse it. Next, a vacuum based abrasive tip is applied which combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously. An LED light is finally used to stimulate the production of collagen – a protein which gives skin its elasticity. The treatment smooths out wrinkles and fine lines. But the most noticeable improvement is on the jowls.
‘This is the area that shows a lot of improvement,’ explains Ms Zander. ‘The difference can be seen in as little as two sessions.’
Jennifer Skeland, 61, from Staines, Middlesex, decided to have the treatment because she wanted to appear more ‘fresh-faced’.
‘I have always looked after my skin and have never smoked, drank a lot, or sat in the sun,’ the mother-of-two says. ‘I cleansed, toned and moisturised religiously every day. But when I reached my 60s, all these deep lines began appearing and my face looked really sluggish.
‘I didn’t want to have a facelift or botox as I didn’t want to appear ‘unnatural.’ I want to grow old with dignity and don’t want to have a face that looks like it’s had work done so this seemed like the next best option.’
Ms Skeland had her first treatment in July this year and saw instant results.
‘There was a little discomfort involved but nothing in comparison to something like Botox,’ she says, ‘and my cheeks were a little red for a day.
‘But when I got up the next morning the skin on my face looked instantly tight. So much so that all the customers at the bank where I work kept complimenting me on how well I looked.’
Three more treatments on and all of the deep lines had vanished, her jawline had lifted and, in Ms Skeland’s words, she ‘looked at least ten years younger’.
‘It was well worth it – I got a new face in a total of just four hours and the results have lasted. I just need to go for the odd top up treatment every three months which I am more than happy to do.’
Mrs Zander, who uses the treatment on herself, said women have been booked weeks in advance for the treatment.
‘We have around up to 100 ladies per month coming in for it,’ she added. ‘Most of them are in their 50s and 60s but some are in their 40s. That is a good age to have the 60-minute facelift as it can then prevent the onset of jowls and deep lines.
‘These are the things that worry women the most and it’s amazing what a difference tightening the jawline and cheek areas can make. It can literally knock years off your appearance and all you have to do is have a top up treatment three to four times a year to maintain the results.’
But aesthetic doctor Nik Milojevic who runs the Milo Clinic on Harley Street, said that while using radio frequency to tighten the skin on the face can improve elasticity, it shouldn’t be seen as an alternative to a facelift.
‘How good the results are of treatments like this really does depend on the patient,’ Dr Milojevi explained. ‘It may work for some people but not for others.
‘If someone came to me with jowls and wrinkles I would be more inclined to use Botox and fillers to lift the face – this is still deemed the best alternative to having surgery.
‘A treatment like this is a step up from having an ordinary facial. It can improve collagen production as radiotherapy does this but even then, for some people surgery is the only answer. If you have a a lot of drooping of the skin, even Botox and fillers can’t correct this. In that case, a full facelift is the only solution.’
