| promotion| Improve the appearance of your skin If you’re having facial rejuvenation therapy, make sure it’s carried out by a professional he sun, pollution, cigarettes, diet and genes all contribute to the pliable skin of youth gradually becoming less elastic, resulting in fine wrinkles. Over time, deeper lines form due to the daily activity of the facial muscles, which fold and thin the skin at the most active creases. The result is the lines around the eyes, brow, cheeks and mouth that we all recognise. The art of facial rejuvenation to improve lines, blemishes and skin texture offers a bewildering array of treatments ranging from the daily use of creams, light or laser treatment, anti-wrinkle injections and skin fillers, to surgical procedures. T the use of potent and prescription-only injectable muscle relaxants had little regulation. It’s still common for untrained ‘injection practitioners’ to consider themselves fully trained by attending a one- or two-day course. Remember, it’s your face they are experimenting with and you who risks an undesirable result or allergic response. On the other hand, doctors, dentists and nurses trained in injection techniques are registered and can be checked online. The Independent Healthcare Advisory Service has currently restricted its Quality Mark to appropriately trained doctors, dentists and feet and forehead wrinkles. Improvements can also be made around the lips, mouth and neck. There is a large selection of skin and tissue fillers available to treat deeper lines, scarring or provide tissue enhancement after disease.

He provides muscle relaxants for migraine, neck and back pain, and treats sweating in the armpits, hands and feet.

Until quite recently, Your essential pre-treatment checklist ● Ask your doctor or therapist for their registration details and registering body. ● Try to establish their experience and level of training before treatment, and remember that you can always verify a genuinely experienced professional. ● Ask for the name and General Medical Council number of the doctor who allows non-medical therapists to do your injections and ask where they’ll be during the treatment. Before embarking on any type of facial rejuvenation procedure, be sure to: ● Find out what happens if you’re unhappy or if something seems to be wrong. This treatment is not well regulated, and some ‘therapists’ may not have a clinical background and may have received minimal training. Some may only have attended a one- or two-day course. ● If you’re concerned about the answers you receive, they’re vague or sound ‘too good to be true’, then be cautious about proceeding with your treatment.
