We sat up with Teresa to get her responses to some frequently asked concerns about her treatments…
In your capacity as a practitioner, what credentials do you hold?
I have over 25 years of expertise in the medical field and am certified as both a nurse and a midwife. In addition to that, I practice as an independent nurse prescriber. I have ten years of experience working in the aesthetic business, and I am a registered nurse who is a member of the Royal College of Nursing as well as the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses.
At the moment, I am working in the field of dermal fillers as a trainer, where I instruct other medical experts. In addition, I have spoken and shown at a number of aesthetic conferences in the UK, such as those hosted by BACN, FACE, and IAAFA. I have collaborated with several of the industry’s most influential thought leaders, such as DR. Russell Emerson and DR. Sandeep Cliff, both of whom are dermatologists, and Mr. Raman Malhotra, an oculoplastic surgeon.
What exactly are these wrinkle-relaxing treatments?
As a therapy for frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, a little dose of a muscle relaxant is applied to the affected areas. After three to five days, the calming effects of the injections into the muscles begin to take hold, and they may continue for anywhere from three to five months at a time. Patients who have had many treatments may discover that the results are more long-lasting.
According to a number of studies, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles may assist improve one’s mood as well as their sense of well-being. When taken appropriately, there is a little risk of experiencing adverse effects, and the good news is that allergic responses are eliminated.
How exactly do dermal fillers function, and what kind of outcomes should I anticipate getting from them?
In order to restore fullness to the face, dermal fillers are used. My fillers are manufactured from hyalaronic acid, which is a naturally occurring component in the human body that is well recognized for the moisturizing and plumping properties it has. Because they include lidocaine, which is a built-in anesthetic, the fillers make the whole procedure of getting injections much more bearable. Although the results are almost instant, you have the freedom to choose how long you want the effect to last because the dermal fillers that are used are not permanent, giving you complete control over how you look. While the results are almost instant, maintaining the effect is a choice that you make.
What exactly constitutes a Skin Booster?
The use of Restylane skinboosters has been shown to enhance the quality of the skin by raising the amounts of hydration deep inside the skin as well as the skin’s smoothness, elasticity, and firmness.
The therapy consists of giving the patient microinjections of hyaluronic acid in order to hydrate the skin and enhance the complexion and firmness of the patient’s skin. Skinboosters provide a chance to refill and maintain hydration from the inside out by compensating for the natural decline in the quality of our own hyaluronic acid that occurs with advancing age. The product has been stabilized so that it may continue to operate over a period of many months. It can also be used to regions such as acne scarred skin, the face, neck, décolletage, hands, and lips. Even if some improvement might be evident after the first treatment, it is suggested that patients undergo a series of three to four treatments for the best possible outcome.
Injectable skin treatments may be utilized on the following problem areas:
This very well-liked anti-wrinkle treatment is effective on all parts of the face, including the neck, chest, and hands, and it may be used anywhere on the body.
These therapies — are they risk-free?
After first being found as a method for treating squints, anti-wrinkle injections have been successfully utilized in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years now. There is no risk of allergic responses, and the effects are very temporary (lasting between three and five months on average). These items include components that are currently being researched and utilized in the medical community as treatments for a wide variety of ailments.
Hyaluronic dermal fillers that aren’t permanent, biodegradable, and safe for the skin are what I employ for skin boosting therapies and dermal fillers. The therapy may cause some mild side effects, such as bruising, and although redness and swelling may also appear as a normal consequence of the treatment, these symptoms should go away within one to two weeks at the most.
Over thirteen million treatments have been performed with the Restylane range all over the globe, indicating that it is both safe and effective. Before receiving any injectable treatments, you will first have to undergo a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for these procedures.
