5 Injectable Treatments To Familiarise Yourself With

injectable treatments Teal Feathers 5

Nowadays, injectable treatments are as commonplace as dental appointments and getting a haircut. Whilst Anti-wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers remain the most popular injectables, they are also incredibly versatile, making similar treatments less well-known. 

Alternative injectable treatments, which boast impressive anti-ageing results, are on the rise. Here, we’ll familiarise you with 5 treatments that you may not have heard of, but will be desperate to try!

Lesser-known Injectable Treatments 

Profhilo Bio Remodelling

Profhilo Bio Remodelling is less well-known than other injectable treatments, but is gaining popularity and recognition with each passing month. For a naturally refreshed look that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and tightens sagging skin, this is the treatment for you. 

Profhilo injections contain hyaluronic acid. However, unlike Dermal Fillers, the consistency of this is runny, which allows the substance to disperse into the skin. This triggers a response known as bio-remodelling, which triggers the production of lots of bouncy collagen and elastin, improving the skin’s texture and firmness. Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic, meaning it draws in water and holds onto it. This enables Profhilo to act as an intense hydrator, transforming dull, lifeless skin into something more beautiful.

Anti-wrinkle Injections To Treat Hyperhidrosis 

Unsurprisingly, Anti-wrinkle Injections are most commonly associated with ageing skin, however, they are also used to treat overactive sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis, a condition characterised by excessive sweating, affects around 4% of the population. 

Generally associated with the underarms, hands and feet, those suffering from hyperhidrosis do not need warm weather or exercise to begin to sweat, which can be a source of great embarrassment. 

Anti-wrinkle Injections contain a neurotoxin that blocks signals from the nerves, causing muscles to relax. When treating hyperhidrosis, injections target a specific area to prevent the nerves from sending messages that stimulate the sweat glands. Results can be seen after as little as two days and can last for up to a year.  

Anti-wrinkle Injections To Treat A Bumpy Chin

With repeated use, the mentalis muscle can cause the chin to appear bumpy and demonstrate a so-called “orange peel” texture. Some people feel self-conscious about this change in appearance and avoid smiling so as not to draw attention to the chin. Thankfully, injectable treatments provide a quick and affordable solution. Precise Anti-wrinkle Injections smooth away the dimpled texture of the chin, with results lasting for approximately 4 months.  

Injectable Treatments To Treat A Downturned Mouth 

Aptly named ‘marionette lines’ run from the corners of the mouth down towards the chin, giving the appearance of a marionette puppet. These lines deepen with age and can cause the mouth to appear downturned, resulting in a sad or grumpy look. 

A combination of injectable treatments effectively reverses the look of a downturned mouth. Anti-wrinkle Injections can be used to lift the corners of this facial feature, creating a more neutral expression, whereas Dermal Fillers restore volume, smoothing away marionette lines. 

Injectable Treatments That Treat Ageing Hands

When we think about the signs of ageing, we tend to concentrate on the face and neck. This is where wrinkles and sagging skin are most noticeable, making them target areas for the majority of injectable treatments. Yet, whilst you may put time and effort into minimising the effects of facial ageing, neglecting your hands may give you away.   

The skin on the backs of the hands is much thinner than on other parts of the body, making them incredibly susceptible to ageing. In addition to this, the hands are largely uncovered by clothing, which increases sun exposure and premature ageing. Over time, the skin loses volume, causing the hands to look bony and veins to become more prominent.  

Injectable treatments that treat ageing hands include Profhilo and Dermal Fillers. Both treatments lift, volumise and hydrate the skin, giving the hands a more youthful appearance. To find out which treatment would be most suitable for your hands, book a consultation with one of our team today.

I visited this clinic on a recommendation and I am so pleased. All the staff were really lovely. I had an anti-wrinkle treatment with Natalie (who is brilliant) and I am so pleased with the result. The whole process from start to finish, cannot be faulted and the end result is really natural. I recommend to anyone to visit them.
