Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic injectables: anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Why would I choose to have anti-wrinkle injections?

  • You want to look younger and reduce the visible signs of ageing
  • You want to prevent current wrinkles and facial lines from getting deeper
  • You want to create a “new you” that looks more vibrant and fresh

 

Before you have anti-wrinkle injections – Do:

  • Make sure you understand what you are seeking before you come in
  • Be honest in disclosing all information about your present medical condition and any medications you are currently taking
  • Make sure you are hydrated and have eaten before the procedure
  • Ask questions about which products will be used, which are best suited for you
  • Choose a reputable salon such as ours!

 

Before your visit – Don’t: 

  • Take aspirin or any other medications, Ibuprofen, St John’s wort or any other medications that may increase bruising
  • Do not drink alcohol before the procedure

During the procedure:

  • If it is your first visit to us, even if you have had anti-wrinkle injections before, you will still need to undertake a Skype consultation with our doctors who will ask a series of questions
  • Once the initial consultation has completed and all your questions have been answered, we will proceed to treatment
  • You will be asked to frown and the nurse injector will place a series of dots (which mark the areas that need treatment). In this way, the anti-wrinkle injections can target these specific areas
  • The area is cooled with the application of a small ice pack or similar
  • The areas marked are treated with the appropriate amount of product
  • You can relax by breathing deep and wiggling your toes if that helps

 

The treatment will finish once all marked areas have been treated.

The Do’s after the procedure:

  • Do receive your home care instructions from us and ask any questions at the time
  • Do follow your home care instructions carefully
  • Do remain hydrated even after the procedure as this is crucial for recovery
  • Do limit the amount of makeup you apply to your face over the next 24 hours

 

The Don’ts after the procedure:

  • Don’t touch the treated areas immediately after the procedure. Allow at least one day before any form of contact.
  • Don’t touch the area if any form of unevenness or bumps occur. Please contact us immediately
  • Don’t smoke cigarettes or any controlled substances directly after the procedure
  • Don’t perform any strenuous activities after the procedure
  • Don’t expose yourself to excessive heat
  • Don’t take fish oils as this contributes to bruising

Why would I choose to have Dermal Fillers?

The purpose of Dermal Fillers is to create a new, fresher you. It is about volumizing those wrinkles and folds to create a younger look.

As we age, collagen and elastin production reduce. This can give us a tired, “washed out” look. Whilst wrinkles require anti-wrinkle injections to soften their look, conversely, volume in the face as well as folds, requires a dermal filler to “re-volumize” the area. This helps to bring back that youthful look to your face. Dermal Fillers are perfect if you: 

  • Have the desire to look younger and reduce the signs of ageing
  • Wish to slow down the ageing process
  • Want to create a “new you” that looks younger and more radiant
