A message from Dr Eithne Brenner, Medical Director and Founder of Manara Skin Clinics
At Manara we have a fabulous solution to rehydrate and smooth the skin, improve elasticity, soften fine lines and stimulate collagen production, with results lasting for up to 9 months from a single treatment. What’s not to love?
How does it work? Volite is an innovative injectable treatment from Juvéderm, one of the most trusted brands in Aesthetic Medicine, made by Allergan. This is not a dermal filler as such, it’s a skin conditioning Hyaluronic acid (HA) gel.
Volite is injected into the middle layers of the skin (dermis) using tiny needles across many sites to nourish it from the inside out. We use numbing cream, and an ice-pack, and Volite contains the numbing ingredient lidocaine, so any discomfort is very minimal.
Volite is suitable for all ages and skin types. Often our clients are nervous of injectable treatments and fear they will look ‘overdone’, but Volite is soft, silky and gives a gorgeous texture improvement to the skin.
I love using Volite in the lines around the eyes where the skin is delicate and often sun-damaged. It’s also great for neck, décolletage, hands and for lines around the mouth, and it can be used to treat the entire face for a full-face hydration and glow.
Until next time, Eithne x
