Lasting from 10 to 20 minutes, the procedure is painless and the effect after the treatment plan is visible from few months to a year. If you are considering the injections, read on to gain a basic knowledge of different options offered by Health Tourism Lithuania.
Botulinum, also called Botox, injections relax the muscle under the treated area of the face preventing the skin from forming wrinkles. Injections with botulinum are the most successful in treating dynamic wrinkles that appear because of the formation of facial expressions like a smile or a frown. These wrinkles usually line on the forehead, around the eyes, and on the throat.
Facial Filler Injections
Facial fillers are substances, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and others, used to rejuvenate facial skin. When injected into the inner layers, one of the substances plump up the sunken face areas or lines of the skin. As a result, wrinkles nearly disappear. The same method might be used to increase the volume of lips, jawlines, temples and other face parts. Injectable fillers can be combined with other procedures, such as laser treatment or facelift.
Fat grafting, also referred to as fat transfer, is a surgical process of transferring fat from one part of the body to another. It is performed by three steps: extraction of the fat - liposuction, purifying of the extracted fat, and reinjection of the fat to the treated area. The procedure is used to solve various problems, including reduction of wrinkles by adding volume to hollowed out areas, as well as improving the overall appearance and texture of the skin.
Treatment with PRP
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a natural product created from substances that your body contains. Using scientific instruments, plasma and platelets are extracted from your blood to be injected into the wrinkled areas. The increased amount of platelets, which have a range of factors that are needed to regenerate tissue, creates softer and tighter skin.
Treatment with SVF
Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells are adipose tissue stem cells which act as regeneratives. To restore skin firmness, the SVF stem cells are extracted from the tissue and injected into the selected areas of the face to stimulate the progenitor cells to regenerate. In this way, the minimally invasive procedure smooths wrinkles for over 12 months.
All of the options differ in their prices and possible side effects. Therefore, professional Lithuanian doctors are happy to advise you on choosing the one that fits your individual needs.
