What is Wrinkle treatment?

Wrinkle treatment is an injectable dermal filler that has been around since 1999. Lipoatrophy causes facial fat loss that results in sunken cheeks and deep folds and indentations on the face.

The main ingredient in Wrinkle treatment is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It’s classified as a collagen stimulator that provides long-lasting, natural-looking results for two years.

Wrinkle treatment is safe and effective but isn’t recommended for people with allergies to its ingredients or for those with medical conditions that cause irregular scarring.

How much does Wrinkle treatment cost?

The cost of Wrinkle treatment depends on several factors, including:

  • amount of enhancement or correction necessary to achieve the desired result
  • number of treatment visits required
  • geographic location
  • number of vials of Wrinkle treatment used
  • discounts or special offers

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of Wrinkle treatment per vial was £150 in 2016. The Wrinkle treatment website lists the average total treatment cost ranging from £150 to £1,800 depending on those factors and other factors.

Wrinkle treatment and other dermal fillers aren’t covered by health insurance. However, in 2010, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services decided to cover the cost of Wrinkle treatment for people living with HIV. The latter have facial lipodystrophy syndrome (lipoatrophy is one type) and experience depression.

Most plastic surgeons offer financing plans, and many also offer coupons or rebates from the makers of Wrinkle treatments.

How does Wrinkle treatment work?

Wrinkle treatments are injected into the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. It contains PLLA, which acts as a collagen stimulator, helping to restore fullness to facial wrinkles and folds gradually. This results in a softer and more youthful appearance.

You may notice immediate results, but it can take a few months to see the full results of your treatment.

Your Wrinkle treatment specialist will work with you to determine the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the best result. The average regimen consists of three injections spread out over three or four months.

Procedure for Wrinkle treatment

During your initial consultation with Crawley Beauty Salon Clinician, you’ll be asked to provide your complete medical history, including any medical conditions and allergies.

On the day of your first Wrinkle treatment, your doctor will map the injection sites on your skin and cleanse the area. A topical anaesthetic may be applied to help with any discomfort. Your doctor will then inject your skin using multiple small injections.

You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Your doctor will advise you of any special instructions.

Targeted areas for Wrinkle treatment

Wrinkle treatment is used to diminish facial wrinkles and folds and has been clinically approved to treat smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and chin.

Wrinkle treatment has many off-label uses, including:

  • nonsurgical butt lift or buttock augmentation
  • correction of cellulite
  • correction of the chest, elbow, and knee wrinkles

Wrinkle treatment has also become a popular choice for those looking to bulk up their appearance. It’s being used to create definition and the look of extra muscle mass on the:

  • glutes
  • thighs
  • biceps
  • triceps
  • pectorals

Wrinkle treatment is not recommended for use on the eyes or the lips.

Are there any risks or side effects?

You can expect some swelling and bruising at the injection site. Other common side effects include:

  • redness
  • tenderness
  • pain
  • bleeding
  • itching
  • bumps

Some people may develop lumps under the skin and skin discolouration. In a 2015 study, the reported incidence of nodule formation associated with Wrinkle treatment was 7 to 9 per cent.

This appears to be related to the depth of the injection, highlighting the importance of finding a qualified professional.

Wrinkle treatment shouldn’t be used by people with a history of irregular scarring or anyone allergic to the ingredients of Wrinkle treatment. In addition, it shouldn’t be used for skin sores, acne, cysts, rashes, or other skin inflammation.

What to expect after Wrinkle treatment

Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after Wrinkle treatment. Swelling, bruising, and other side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days. Doing the following will help speed along with your recovery:

  • Apply a cold pack to the affected area for a few minutes at a time within the first 24 hours.
  • Following treatment, massage the area for five minutes at a time, five times a day, for five days.
  • Avoid excessive sunlight or tanning beds until any redness and swelling have resolved.

Results are gradual, and it may take a few weeks to see the full effects of Wrinkle treatment. Results last up to two years.

Preparing for Wrinkle treatment

There is no special preparation required for Wrinkle treatment. However, to reduce the risk of bleeding, your doctor may ask that you stop taking NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen a few days before treatment.

Are there other similar treatments?

Wrinkle treatment falls under the category of dermal fillers. Several approved dermal fillers are available, but unlike other fillers that push up the space just below wrinkles and folds for immediate results, Wrinkle treatment stimulates collagen production.

The results appear gradually as your collagen production increases, lasting up to two years.
