The desire to improve the way we look has significantly increased in recent years, with the development of technology and anti-ageing treatments.
Not long ago, the general understanding about anti-ageing treatments was that wrinkles could be reduced from the age of 40 or 50 years old.
Today, it is understood that not only wrinkles, but overall volume loss is a fundamental component to facial aging.
Contributing factors include the redistribution of fats, changes in tissue composition, exposure to sunlight, genetic make-up, environmental factors and nutrition, to name a few.
Additionally, fast and hectic lifestyles result in more stress and pressure on individuals, hindering their ability to maintain a fresh young look.
This has put cosmetic industry professionals in higher demand and challenges them to fulfil customer needs and reduce the signs of ageing.
Aesthetic medicine is in focus these days, offering further evaluation and understanding of the ageing processes.
There is greater understanding in the prevention and delay of the ageing process, thanks to the constant development of cutting-edge technologies and products, as well as the innovative ways in which to use them.
Multi-functional injectable products such as dermal fillers and neurotoxins – commonly known as Botox – remain the gold standard for facial anti-ageing treatments.
Aesthetic medicine offers people the ability to postpone surgical treatments indefinitely.
Injectable treatments are fast and relatively painless, requiring little to no recovery time.
This form of treatment is also less expensive, compared with traditional cosmetic surgery.
The combination of no down time and minimal cost makes injectable treatments a great alternative to surgery for correcting the effects of ageing.
There are two injectable products available at the German Medical Centre.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based dermal fillers – the most popular – features a molecule found naturally in human skin and lasts between four and six months.
By binding water molecules, Hyaluronic Acid based products add volume under the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips and remove scars.
Known as the ‘liquid facelift’, it has the power to provide complete facial rejuvenation, giving patients a fresh and youthful appearance.
Alternatively, the centre offers the Neurotoxin injectable, known as Botox, used for smoothing deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time.
Derived from a family of neurotoxins that prevent nerve signals in muscles from contracting, it relaxes facial muscles subsequently removing lines and wrinkles.
It is recommended to start treatment before lines and wrinkles appear to any great extent.
Effects last between three and six months.
These treatments are widely utilised by professionals due to limited contraindications and excellent results.
There are an overwhelming number of injectable products available on the market, making it important to do your research.
When reading a brief overview, it is important to keep in mind that each product provides specific benefits, therefore a professional can advise on the best course of action to obtain your goals.
The most vital aspect of choosing these treatments and gaining good, lasting results is to ensure you visit a reputable medical centre with trained specialist doctors able to provide high quality treatment with certified products.
