Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, life shapes the face you have at thirty, but at fifty you get the face you deserve.
It is now possible to achieve the look you want, whether your face is shaped by life or indeed deserved by it, with facial rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatments.
Anti-wrinkle injections will help you to look refreshed, relaxed and younger looking. Lines and wrinkles can be erased and softened with non-surgical treatments.
Gone are the days when a woman had to resort to the surgeon’s knife to achieve fantastic results; advances is cosmetic technology mean that anti-wrinkle injections are now both effective and affordable.
Anti-wrinkle and Dermal Filler Lunch Breaks
A 30 minute lunch time appointment is enough time for a treatment that will address the wrinkles and lines affecting your self-esteem. There are many establishments offering such treatments, but be careful in selecting the right one for you; always research the therapist you’re entrusting your face to, and become familiar with the anti-wrinkle and dermal filler products being offered.
What should I ask my practitioner before having cosmetic injectable procedures?
- You owe it to yourself to be informed on cosmetic procedures. After all, you only have one face. A skilled practitioner has an aesthetic eye and understands which treatments will enhance your features. It is important to grasp the philosophy “less is more”. We’ve all seen Hollywood stars with too much product and the classic “pillow faced cheeks” or “trout pout”.
- Ask your practitioner which products they use. Not all dermal fillers are equal.
- Have the products proposed for use as your anti-wrinkle injections been tried and tested? Product safety and efficacy should be your main concern. Many dermal fillers on the market may not have FDA approval (Google FDA approval if you want to understand more about this term).
- How many treatments have been performed, globally, using the product being recommended for you?
- There is no substitute for experience with any skill. This is especially important with aesthetic practitioners. Some practitioners have set up a clinic after a one day Botox course! Ask your practitioner how long they have been working in the industry. What are their qualifications? Does he/she understand facial anatomy and skin physiology? Do they have a clear understanding of how skin and bone interface, and of how the skin functions? This knowledge is vital in good clinical aesthetic practice.
- A good practitioner should offer you a full facial and skin assessment to identify the best treatment for you. There are excellent computer tools available, like Visia and Profect, which provide a more comprehensive assessment.
Always ask questions, you owe it to yourself to be well informed.
Aesthetic care is not just about treating lines and wrinkles. It’s about making you look and feel better. If you’re going to pay for it, do it properly.
