Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, caused by the regular contraction of facial muscles below the surface of the skin.
A consultation for the treatment of lines and wrinkles will involve a dynamic assessment of the face; analysing the way the muscles are moving and contributing to lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface. Where appropriate, various treatments may be recommended.
One such treatment offered at BEAUT Aesthetics is Bocouture or Azzalure injections depending on the individual.
The most common areas that are requested for treatment include frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes).
We are also experienced in subtly lifting or reshaping areas of the face, including the brow (to reshape and lift), jaw line (to slim), gummy smile (to lower a top lip and reduce the show of the upper gum), Marionette area (to lift a droopy smile), chin (to reduced dimpled appearance), smokers lines (to reduce fine lines along the upper lip) and bunny lines (to smooth the sides of the nose).
People begin to show signs of ageing at different ages. This is largely dictated by genetics and environmental factors. In addition, what might be a concern for one person, might be attractive or even un-noticed by another. As such there is no right answer to this question. What is important is that each individual is assessed on account of their own personal concerns, objectives and medical history. At BEAUT aesthetics we have patients in their twenties through to their eighties. We do not offer treatment to patients under the age of 18.
Anti wrinkle injections have been rigorously tested and have a robust safety record globally, offered to tens of millions of patients over decades; no injectable treatment is without risk. We recommend that you always seek an appropriately trained and highly skilled Professional to administer any injectable treatment. At BEAUT Aesthetics, only fully advanced trained and insured practitioners are able to administer any injectables.
Treatment for lines and wrinkles, or re-contouring of the face, will always begin with a consultation to determine the correct treatment for you. If anti wrinkle injections are appropriate, you will have the opportunity to have your treatment on another day, or if you feel fully informed and comfortable to proceed, the treatment can usually be done the same day.
The procedure itself involves only minor discomfort as we use only ultra fine (disposable) needles, and offer numbing cream (although many patients find this unnecessary). The process takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Although mild redness and slight swelling is common immediately after treatment, this usually resolves within 30 minutes. Mild bruising is possible, but for the vast majority of patients, there is no real downtime and most will return to work or their usual daily activities immediately.
Effects begin to show between 3 and 14 days following treatment. We invite our patients back after two weeks to review the results, and make any fine adjustments where necessary. This is considered an integral part of the treatment and does not incur any extra charge.
Treatment results last an average of 3-4 months, although noticeably longer can be achieved in some cases. It is important to note that anti wrinkle injections will reduce lines and wrinkles and/or reshape face and is not a permanent solution. Lines, wrinkles and previous facial form will eventually return and further treatments will be required.
