During your consultation with the doctor, you will discuss your various concerns. Perhaps it relates to looking tired, looking gaunt, sweating excessively in localised areas or looking cranky when you‘re not. All of these concerns may be improved with judiciously placed injections.
The injections used will either stop nerves activating muscles or sweat glands in the areas targeted for treatment, change the contours of the face by augmenting convexities as they deflate with age or fill hollows as they increase with age, or reduce or remove the lines and wrinkles due to repeated expressions, sleeping on your face or the skin draping itself into folds.
All of these things may then affect the way you feel about yourself and the way others relate to you.
These procedures do not produce “obvious” results. When the face is brought back into proportion it just looks right and people may comment that you look well or happy. It is only when things are taken out of proportion that results become “obvious” and this is not an advisable outcome and not what we aim for.
Rather than requesting a certain product or procedure, it is best to discuss your concerns with the doctor, discuss the various options which may be available to you and go from there.
