As we age the skin inevitably loses its elasticity and becomes thin and sagging resulting in those, often dreaded, wrinkles. Genetics plays a big part in deciding how lined our faces become but other major influences such as sun exposure, diet and smoking have a huge role.
Some lines appear only during facial movement (dynamic) whilst others are present at rest (static).
Areas that can be treated include:
Each treatment session usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes and involves between 10 and 15 injections. These are carried out using tiny needles to minimise any discomfort. There is next to no down time, although activities like exercise should be avoided for at least 6 hours after the treatment. The area should not be touched for 24 hours and a review with your aesthetic practitioner should take place 2 to 3 weeks after the first procedure.
These treatments are completely safe with severe and permanent reactions almost completely unheard of; your aesthetic practitioner will be able to discuss all of this during your consultation.
