Injectable treatments are an effective way to enhance your appearance without incisions, anaesthesia or a recovery period. As non-surgical cosmetic treatments continue to grow in popularity, new formulations have been introduced to precisely address patient concerns and provide the best possible results. Before you schedule your first injectable treatment, it is a good idea to understand your options available at Norwood Day Surgery.
Some facial lines form when you make certain expressions. Known as “dynamic” wrinkles, these creases are caused by facial muscles when they contract and relax. To smooth out these types of wrinkles, we offer injections that relax the facial muscles that lead to them. Wrinkle relaxants are very effective at reducing the appearance of lines around the forehead and eyes.
Other facial lines are due to changes in the underlying skin structure that appear over time. In our youth, our bodies produce ample amounts of elastin and collagen, which support the underlying skin structure and give skin its volume, smooth and supple appearance. As we age, our bodies produce less of these substances, leading to skin laxity and looseness and the appearance of fine lines and deeper facial creases.
Dermal fillers provide support to the underlying skin structure, smoothing away wrinkles and adding mid-face volume from the inside out. The formulations also stimulate the body’s own production of collagen for natural, long-lasting results in areas around the nose and mouth. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to restore youthful volume and create the appearance of firmer skin in areas like the cheeks, lips and jawline.
Combining Formulas for Best Results
Both wrinkle relaxants and dermal fillers take just a few minutes to administer and there is little or no recovery period afterward. Due to their minimally-invasive nature, these injections can also be combined to produce even more dramatic results. At Norwood Day Surgery, we can help you determine which type of injectable treatment will serve your specific needs best and whether a combination of injections might provide you with the best results.
Injectable treatments have taken the cosmetic medicine world by storm, with the ability to turn back time and correct facial imperfections in a matter of minutes. Non-surgical procedures are not permanent, but they do offer natural, beautiful results that can increase your self-confidence and your self-esteem.
