Are anti-wrinkle injections for me?
Making the decision to elect for a non-surgical aesthetic treatment isn’t necessarily an easy one, but we also understand that living with something that makes you unhappy or distressed isn’t an easy situation either. Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most effective tools available to help deal with problem lines, facial creases, and areas of visibly sagging skin caused by a loss of volume – but they aren’t always the first port of call for everyone. If you’re wondering about anti-wrinkle injections, or have questions regarding the methods or materials used, get in touch with Dr Lou to find out more.
What are dermal fillers?
Unlike Botox which temporarily relaxes facial muscles, Juvéderm, which is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), can actually plump the skin, and will often lead to longer lasting results. Some of the most popular areas to target include nose-to-mouth lines, upper lip lines and mouth-to-chin lines, all of which are available as treatment options at our salon in the heart of York. If you’re looking more for an enhancement of your features, rather than just a refresh, you might be interested in some of the additional choices that also utilise the qualities of Juvéderm, including – cheek shaping, chin re-shaping, under-eye hollows (tear troughs), and nose re-shaping.
Don’t sweat it
Excessive sweating can be a distressing issue to deal with, especially if it’s starting to dictate clothing choices and it’s making an individual anxious in work or social situations. Did you know that the problem is usually worse under the arms, in the palms of hands, and on the soles of feet due to the higher concentration of eccrine glands which produce sweat? If you’re struggling with this issue, it might be that your situation could be improved with the help of anti-sweating injections administered by Dr Lou.
It’s good to talk
Ahead of any course of treatment, it is essential for your safety and suitability to be considered at a consultation session. These informal, no-obligation discussions are there to ensure that Dr Lou can give the best advice possible for your desired outcome, your skin type, and your medical history. They’re the perfect chance to mine years of dermatological expertise and to find out answers to all of your skin-related questions.
