A rejuvenated and youthful glow is something every woman aims for, especially when it concerns the face. With dermal fillers, you can smoothen wrinkles around the nasolabial lines (smile lines) and oral commissures (smokers lines above the upper lip), or enlarge your lips.
There are many dermal fillers available in the market, and treatment consists of a stabilised, hyaluronic acid (naturally occurring in humans), in the form of a crystal-clear gel. The substance smooths wrinkles and folds or gives contour to the skin. Anti-wrinkle injections use gel fillers that are stable, bio-degradable, and do not contain animal acid. These qualities eliminate the risk of transmitting disease or inducing allergic reactions in patients sensitive to common foods such as beef, chicken, or eggs.
This treatment is designed to be used for the correction of:
- Nasolabial lines (smile lines)
- Oral commissures (smokers lines above upper lip)
- Or for Lip augmentation / enhancement (enlargement).
The anti-wrinkle gel comes in a pre-measured syringe, which is injected directly underneath the wrinkle needing treatment. The volume from the gel lifts and plumps out the line or wrinkle, making it appear smoother and less obvious. When used for enhancement or enlargement, the gel gives extra volume to the lips. This plumps up and enhances its shape. Most clients report that the extra volume to the lip-line improves “lipstick bleeding” significantly.
Each treatment lasts between 6-12 months, results last an average of 8 months.
Around the world, excessive sweating is a condition that is experienced by millions of people.
For sufferers of hyperhidrosis that is inadequately managed with topical agents such as antiperspirants, botulinum toxin injected into the armpits can give great relief.
No more embarrassing wet, smelly patches!
After a treatment, sufferers find that they no longer drip and have discoloured clothing, and it can really be lifechanging. It gives people a sense of freedom in social situations, where they would otherwise have been very self-conscious about their sweating. Most people experience a dramatic reduction in sweating within a couple of days of having the treatment. The treatment requires a small amount of botulinum toxin to be injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. B.T. works by preventing the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate. As the needle is very fine, the injections are not considered to be painful, however you may experience slight discomfort. A numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment if required.
The treatment takes just 15 minutes, and lasts on average around 7-9 months.
Many people consider this treatment for a special occasions like marriage or important ineterviews. Many celebrities have this treatment performed before red carpet events.
Unfortunately as we age lines on the face appear. Also by living in India, sun-damage is just a part of life.
The cause of wrinkles is varied, however, when you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint your facial muscles contract, causing wrinkles to form. These wrinkles can leave you looking tired, sad or angry. In particular, the frown lines worry most people.
Anti-Wrinkle injections can relax these muscles for a period of a few months, thus softening or eliminating wrinkles on the surface of the skin.
- How it works
Anti-Wrinkle injections are a protein extracted from the naturally occurring bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. The protein works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The muscles that are specific to causing wrinkles are targeted, allowing these muscles to relax. Once the muscles are relaxed, the overlying wrinkles soften or disappear.
- The procedure
The patient is assessed by Dr. Ingle. Photographs may be taken.
A dose will be decided upon, and this will be injected directly into the area involved. (Each client is individual and will have an individual requirement). Following this, the relaxation of the targeted muscles will take place between 3 to 10 days after the injection. If a higher dose is required, this can be injected at any stage after the first injection. The effects of muscle relaxation will last between 3-6 months.
- What are the risks involved?
You may occasionally develop a small bruise, redness or slight tenderness at the injection site. Some patients report a headache for a day or two after treatment. There are some extremely rare complications reported, and these can be discussed at consultation.
* Please note that Anti-Wrinkle injections cannot be given to pregnant or breast-feeding clients.
In general, these anti-wrinkle injections are a safe in-office procedure for the correction of facial lines, the effects of which are temporary.
