Injectable treatments are an easy and virtually pain free way of tackling various signs of ageing, such as lines and wrinkles, and sagging of the skin. Injectable treatments can also be used for combating conditions such as excessive underarm sweating, known as Hyperhidrosis.
There was a time when treatments such as wrinkle relaxing injections (more commonly known as Botox) and Dermal Fillers were only available to the super rich. Today however, Botox treatments and Dermal Fillers are available to anyone who wants to look at their best without resorting to surgery. These quick, fast acting, treatments are now a regular part of many women’s and men’s beauty routines.
So what can you expect from your injectable treatments?
Wrinkle relaxing injections (Botox)
This treatment is used to tackle signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles and sagging of the skin around the eyes, mouth, and chin. As we age the muscles in our face begin to lose their tone and this can result in areas of the face dropping as we get older.
By injecting botulinum (a natural purified protein) into the offending muscles and wrinkles, the muscles begin to relax and lift, this then lifts the skin and tackling sagging. Injectable treatments can even be used to treat the deep frown lines you never thought you would be able to get rid of. The process is so effective that the results can be as dramatic as a surgical facelift but you’ve avoided the surgery, scarring, and a very big bill!
The same principle is applied when treating excessive underarm sweating. By injecting botulinum into the underarms, the sweat glands are paralysed and no longer produce sweat. The effect of this treatment can last for months and offers the sufferer instant relief.
The results of wrinkle relaxing injections develop gradually over a period of 7 – 14 days and the effects can last between 6 and 18 months.
Dermal Fillers can be used to treat lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth. They can also be used to enhance certain areas of the face such as the cheeks and lips, giving you back the youthful plumpness you used to have.
Unlike Botox, collagen injections (Dermal Fillers) are used to plump out the skin. The treatment is quick and non-invasive with long lasting results. You may experience some slight swelling after treatment but you will see immediately that the results are going to be fantastic.
As with wrinkle line relaxing injections, the results of Dermal Filler treatments develop over a period of 7 – 14 days. The initial results you see after treatment are only going to get better and better.
