ANTI WRINKLE INJECTION TREATMENTS IN ALTRINCHAM
As we age over-active facial muscles gradually wears away the collagen in our skin causing skin to reduce in volume & plumpness, and lines and wrinkles to appear, fortunately these effects are reversible.
Anti-wrinkle injections are the one most popular non-surgical treatment we offer.
It’s a simple, non-invasive treatment that can smooth lines for both men and women.
Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form by temporarily reducing the contractions of those muscles to create a smoothed rejuvenated appearance. Muscle relaxant injections can remove the telltale signs of ageing.
They work by relaxing the over-active facial muscles that are responsible for facial wrinkles such as deep frown lines and crows feet. You can resume your normal day and look forward to noticing facial lines soften over the next 3 – 7 days.
Your relaxed, rejuvenated and fresher look will stay with you for 3 to 6 months – and you can expect this to increase over time with repeated treatments.
An FDA approved prescription medicine that when used correctly alongside a healthy low-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity is guaranteed to help shift that unwanted excess weight by working as an appetite suppressant, whilst also proven to improve many indicators of cardiovascular risk.
How is it administered?
A simple & painless daily injection using a very easy to use, tiny, dose-adjusted pen that is pre-filled with the medication. All you have to do is set the dial to the correct dosage and inject under the skin of the abdomen. You must follow the administration, dosing and instructions given to you by our medical practitioners in order to minimise the risk of side effects and safely achieve your desired goals. You will also receive review appointments with your appointed medical practitioner (all complimentary at no further cost) so that we can monitor and record your weight, blood pressure, dose adjustments and blood glucose levels.
Your medication will last 3-4 weeks dependent on your individual dosage plan.
How does it work?
The medication converts the fat stores within your body into energy, resulting in the weight-loss. It also steadies and maintains blood glucose levels so that your appetite is suppressed, but your body does not go into starvation mode.
We recommend it alongside a healthy low calorie diet and remaining hydrated. Your metabolism will remain maintained so that no rapid weight gain will occur once you have finished using the product.
How much weight will I expect to lose?
If the instructions provided to you are followed carefully then you can potentially expect to lose between 1-2 stone in a 4-6 week period. We cannot guarantee this for everybody – due to individual differences. However, this has been an average amount lost by patients who have recently trialed the new weight loss medication.
Can anybody take this medication?
No, a full medical history will be taken and you will receive a thorough consultation with our medical practitioner Dr Phillipa Brown in order to distinguish if we are able to prescribe the medication for you. People who are not able to take such medication include:
• Patients on diabetic medication
• Patients on thyroid medication
• Patients with Eating disorders, Body Dysmorpia or any other mental health issues we may be concerned by
• Patients with a BMI <20
• Patients we feel do not qualify for the medication for any other reasons discussed during your consultation.
• Pregnant individuals and those breast feeding
Our patients are reviewed & monitored carefully. If we feel you are losing too much weight, your BMI is too low, you no longer require the medication or we have any other concerns regarding your physical or mental health/well-being then we reserve the right to discontinue your prescription.
What are the side effects?
All medications have the potential for side effects but this newly approved weight loss medication is remarkably well tolerated if taken as directed by your appointed medical practitioner.
