These treatments are ideal for those who do not need to undergo permanent, surgical treatment options, who have retained better skin quality and less tissue laxity. It is for those seeking a quick, temporary and cost-effective method of looking fresher.
It is not painful!
It is a treatment that requires no anaesthetic/ numbing as it’s fairly comfortable and quick. Injections are very shallow, meaning that it is injected just below the surface of the skin and into the target muscle, where it remains.
There is hardly any downtime!
Minimal recovery time and effective results are two of the treatment’s most alluring features. Recovery time will vary depending on the treatment type you receive, however this is generally limited to reducing activity afterwards and keeping the area clean. Any redness, raised injection points subside by the time you get home. The treatment has been in use for decades and continues to be researched.
It is temporary, and that reassures people!
The effects last on average 4 months with a range of 3-6 months. Maintenance treatments are therefore required to maintain the look. Consistency will lead to longevity!
Am I suitable?
In general, treatments are well-tolerated, but there are a few things to be aware of before your treatment. You are assessed for suitability for treatment during a Consultation and risks/benefits discussed. Alternative treatments are recommended depending on your skin needs. Skinboosters, Profhilo, dermal fillers, skin peels and medium grade skincare will be discussed as part of a personalised treatment plan.
