Treating wrinkles and fine lines is part of the beauty of your mouth and face
For most of us, our appearances and the first impression we give are extremely important. The image we see in the mirror every day affects our well-being and how we interact with other people. If we feel that we look good, we will also feel good.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, but it is reduced as we get older. The effect of hyaluronic acid is based on its capacity in retaining water in the human body and restoring the volume and fullness of the skin tissue. When wrinkles on the skin are not caused by the muscles of facial expression, they can be evened out using hyaluronic acid injections. These treatments will fully wear off in time. You will be able to see the effects of the treatment immediately and they will typically last around 6-8 months in your body. The most commonly treated areas include nasolabial folds and lines at the corners of the mouth. The treatment is also used for enhancing lip lines and increasing lip volume. Injections to the deeper levels of the skin have also been introduced to improve facial volume reduced due to ageing. This allows repairing the causes of lines and lowering of facial tissues. As a result, the facial expression will be rejuvenated and the face will look naturally younger. These kinds of deep volume fillers, e.g. around the cheekbones and the side of the forehead and jawline, are used to restore and repair changes caused by the ageing of the skin and harmonise the face based on the customer’s wishes. The aim is that patient will look natural without changes to their facial features after the treatments.
If needed, regional anaesthesia will be used, as customers tend to find the injection of fillers slightly uncomfortable. Our professionals find regional anaesthesia a technically simple procedure, which makes injecting the fillers a completely painless process.
Botulinum toxin treatments
Botulinum has been used in health and beauty care for over 20 years. Is a safe and effective protein used to relax the chosen muscle and smooth away facial lines when injected into the muscles of facial expression. Smoothing of wrinkles is usually visible 1-2 weeks after the injection. The result will last for 3-6 months. The muscles will fully regain their function after the treatment has worn off. The Botox treatment can be safely repeated after the substance has left the body. Unlike what you might have heard, Botox causes no feeling of numbness or rigidity on the face. There might be slight redness or swelling around the injection area. You can wear make up immediately after the treatment. The most commonly treated areas include the frown lines between the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead and smile lines around the eyes.
Botulinum is also successfully used to treat the strong jaw muscles of people with excessive teeth grinding. This allows reducing the muscle activity in the area, often getting rid of pain completely.
Other therapeutic indications of Botox treatment on the face include chronic migraines, excessive sweating of the forehead, headaches caused by muscle strain, the muscles around the mouth area and pain in neck muscles.
There has been a clear increase for using botulinum toxin to treat different medical conditions. According to estimates, 12-15 million Botox treatments are annually given around the world. Despite the large number, there have been few side effects, and botulinum toxin is therefore considered a highly safe medicinal product.
The best overall results can be accomplished with treatments where the above mentioned fillers are combined with botulinum toxin treatments.
Repeating the treatments at regular intervals makes it possible to retain the youthfulness of the face without any unexpected changes to the face, which could occur in the case of a facelift. This is due to the fact that a complete surgical rejuvenation is typically based on tightening of tissues. In this case, the result might happen too quickly to the patient and his or her loved ones, and they might thus find the change unnatural. Thanks to the latest treatment technology, the need for surgical facelifts has decreased and the number of these procedures is getting smaller.
