Northway Medical Centre offers consultations with highly trained plastic surgeons and a wide range of beauty injections and treatments, including:
Botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid injections are a fast, safe and effective way to turn back time. These non-surgical treatments provide excellent results and reduce the risk of possible complications.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural skin macromolecule. As the body’s natural hydration, it acts like a sponge to attract and retain water and maintains skin softness, volume, elasticity and firmness. With age, the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin decline gradually. This loss of moisture leads to sagging skin, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin texture. A hyaluronic acid injection is a quick way to add volume to the skin and smooth away wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin is most often used to correct facial expression lines. This substance affects the nerve terminals by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching the muscles, therefore paralysing them for a short time. The muscle relaxes (stops contracting), thus smoothing out the wrinkles and preventing the appearance of new ones. These injections are most often used to correct wrinkles occurring in the neck and eye area as part of the treatment of facial ageing.
However, everyone who is willing to take the opportunity to use a natural and safe method to correct the signs of ageing should know that botulinum toxin injections in Lithuania are permitted only at healthcare institutions which have certified and experienced plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
The quality and success of the beauty treatments depends largely on the medical specialists’ thorough knowledge about muscle anatomy, selection of the correct area and dose for injection, and understanding of the condition of the skin and facial anatomy. Therefore, injectable treatments should only be performed by qualified medical professionals.
Botulinum toxin injections can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, palms and feet. Once injected into the affected areas, botulinum toxin blocks the signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive the signals, the severe sweating settles.
