What is anti-wrinkle treatment?
The most common reason patients request fillers is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on and around the face. As we age, our skin loses much of its natural elasticity, and this can cause wrinkles to form. The areas around the eyes and mouth, and also the forehead, are common places where wrinkles can start to appear. Make an appointment with the Ghosh Medical Group for anti-wrinkle treatment; Liverpool residents can undergo treatment at a safe, trusted private healthcare practice.
How does anti-wrinkle treatment work?
Injecting a cosmetic filler into specific areas will cause the skin to tighten up, pulling wrinkles into a flatter, smoother complexion. The result can have a marked effect on a person, often making them appear younger and healthier.
Unlike collagen injections, which artificially replicate the skin's own proteins, fillers act as blockers that shut down signals between nerves and muscles.This temporary paralysis relaxes the muscles, smoothing out wrinkles and lines in the process.
What can be treated?
We have trained, qualified practitioners available to carry out treatments for both cosmetic and medical purposes. Our fast, simple anti-wrinkle treatment in Liverpool will achieve the results you want, leaving you looking and feeling great. Turn back the clock on the ageing process, plump up your skin, or ease muscular issues - our dermal fillers have so many applications.
Alongside the cosmetic benefits, fillers can improve many medical conditions by easing certain symptoms. For example, the injections can tighten the muscles that cause urinary incontinence, relieve painful neck spasms, or put an end to excessive sweating. By paralysing the muscles, the fillers can block certain messages to stop muscle contractions, eye twitches and even recurring headaches. Some studies have shown that the chemical in cosmetic fillers can reduce the occurrence of chronic migraines in a number of patients.
In preparation for your treatment you should avoid alcohol and aspirin at least a week before treatment as this can help minimise any potential bruising.
How long does the treatment take?
Anti-wrinkle treatment is a speedy process and takes just a few minutes to be completed. It is done without need for any anaesthetic. The substance used is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles and you will experience only very minor discomfort. It usually takes between 7 to 14 days to see the full benefit of the treatment.
How long should I expect for the treatment to have an effect?
The effect can last anywhere between 3-4 weeks and up to six months. Several injections are often needed in order to stimulate the filler in all required places. This cosmetic treatment is usually requested as an anti-ageing procedure, but it can also be used to tighten up the skin in order to change the patient's appearance: for example, giving the lips a rounder, fuller look.
What precautions should I take after the treatment (aftercare)?
Our experienced, qualified nurses and general practitioners will carry out your treatment using medical-grade fillers and a sterile needle. The clinic is extremely clean and well maintained, and testing will be carried out prior to treatment to prevent allergic reactions.
