What can beauty injections correct and when to start using them?
Many people wonder: when do I need beauty injections? At what age can I start using them to maintain the youth and beauty of my skin? Specialists in aesthetic medicine emphasize that there is no specific age limit for undergoing such treatments. It is best to address any concerns as they arise. Each person is unique, and signs of aging manifest at different times. Some individuals may notice wrinkles appearing around the age of 30, while others may experience them at 40 or even later.
If you feel dissatisfied with your natural facial appearance, want to make corrections, or have observed a loss of moisture, elasticity, and the emergence of wrinkles or other undesired changes, it may be time to consult a specialist in aesthetic medicine and consider beauty injections to enhance your appearance. According to experts, botulinum toxin injections, commonly used to treat expression lines (or dynamic wrinkles), can be utilized not only for wrinkle correction but also for prevention. By blocking involuntary facial expressions, Botox injections can delay the onset of wrinkles, which can be particularly beneficial for individuals with overactive muscles, especially those prone to emotional expressions.
Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid can be applied to various facial areas. These fillers help reduce or smoothen wrinkles on the forehead, bridge of the nose, around the eyes, mouth, nose, lips, neck, and hands. They can also lift the cheeks, plump the lips, define the chin and jawline, restore and shape specific facial features, provide long-term hydration to the skin, restore volume, enhance elasticity, and create a healthy, fresh, and youthful appearance. The effects of these beauty injections are noticeable immediately after the procedure.
Botulinum toxin injections can effectively minimize or even eliminate wrinkles, including crow’s feet (wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes), frown lines (also known as worry lines) between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and other expression lines. Additionally, they can lift the corners of the lips. Botox injections work by blocking hyperactive muscles responsible for the formation of expression lines, resulting in smoother skin. The effects typically become noticeable within 3-5 days, with maximum results observed within two weeks after treatment.
It is essential to highlight that only qualified medical practitioners, such as plastic surgeons or dermatologists, should administer hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin injections in a medical setting. This ensures a safe procedure and high-quality outcomes. The proper prescription of the correct drug type, dosage, and maintaining sterility are crucial factors. Moreover, the expertise of medical specialists in understanding the skin’s structure, potential reactions, and complications is of utmost importance. Trained professionals will also determine the optimal dosage and appropriate injection sites. By choosing to have cosmetic procedures at a reputable medical centre, you mitigate the risks associated with obtaining uncertified hyaluronic acid and Botox fillers of questionable quality.
How long do beauty injections work?
The effectiveness of beauty injections varies based on an individual’s skin properties. Hyaluronic acid fillers can provide results that last between 9 to 24 months. As the fillers naturally dissolve, wrinkles become less pronounced. Consequently, during subsequent procedures, a smaller amount of filler will be required.
Botulinum toxin injections typically yield results lasting approximately 6 to 12 months. To maintain a long-term effect, it is advisable to schedule repeat injections at a later stage. Over time, the effects of fillers tend to last longer. Additionally, you will gradually break the habit of furrowing your brows, which contributes to the formation of expression lines.
Are beauty injections painful?
Before applying dermal fillers, a local anesthetic is administered to ensure comfort. The filler is then injected into specific areas of the skin using a fine needle. During the procedure, patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. However, modern fillers now include lidocaine, which helps to further alleviate any potential discomfort. While dermal treatment is minimally invasive, it is common for the injection sites to exhibit temporary redness, swelling, or bruising. Depending on the specific treatment performed, many patients are able to resume their daily activities on the same day. However, it is advisable to follow the medical specialist’s advice to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures (such as sun or frost) or going to the sauna.
At Northway Medical Centres, our skilled and professional specialists in plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as dermatology, listen attentively to each patient’s expectations and offer the most suitable solutions for their individual needs.
