In the world of aesthetic enhancement, injectable procedures stand out for their efficacy, convenience, and minimal downtime, making them a favoured choice among those seeking to rejuvenate and beautify their appearance without undergoing surgery. At Cheshire Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a range of injectable treatments designed to meet various cosmetic needs, from smoothing wrinkles and fine lines to enhancing facial contours and features.

Injectable procedures, including dermal fillers and muscle-relaxing injections, provide a quick, relatively painless solution for those looking to address signs of ageing or enhance their natural beauty. These treatments can be tailored to suit each individual’s unique facial structure, ensuring results that are not only effective but also natural-looking. The beauty of injectable treatments lies in their versatility. Whether you are looking to plump up your lips, restore volume to sunken cheeks, smooth out forehead lines, or even rejuvenate your skin, our expert team led by Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anca Breahna can craft a treatment plan that aligns perfectly with your aesthetic goals.

One of the main benefits of opting for injectable procedures is the minimal invasiveness involved. Unlike surgical options, these treatments do not require long recovery periods. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their session. This convenience is complemented by the rapidity of the results, which can often be seen almost instantaneously. Moreover, the non-permanent nature of most injectables means that treatments can be adjusted over time to adapt to your changing aesthetic needs and preferences.

At our clinic, safety and patient satisfaction are paramount. Anca uses only the highest quality, clinically approved products, ensuring that each treatment is not only effective but also meets the highest standards of safety. Prior to any procedure, a consultation is conducted to discuss your medical history, aesthetic aspirations, and any questions you may have. This personalised approach helps to ensure that every treatment plan is as unique as the individuals we treat.

We understand that the decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure is significant. Therefore, we are committed to providing our patients with all the information they need to make informed choices. Through detailed discussions and expert guidance, we aim to ensure that your journey to enhanced beauty is both successful and satisfying.

By choosing Cheshire Cosmetic Surgery for your injectable treatments, you are opting for quality, expertise, and a tailored approach to beauty that you can trust.


Injectable Procedures at Cheshire Cosmetic Surgery

At Cheshire Cosmetic Surgery, we pride ourselves on offering a range of advanced injectable treatments, meticulously designed to address various aesthetic concerns. Our suite of injectable procedures encompasses everything from dermal fillers to muscle-relaxing injections, each tailored to enhance your natural beauty while maintaining a balance with your overall facial aesthetics.

  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are a cornerstone of non-surgical facial rejuvenation, providing a versatile solution to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and restore lost volume. Composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin, these fillers offer temporary yet immediate improvements in skin texture and volume. Treatment areas typically include the cheeks, lips, jawline, and nasolabial folds. The procedure is quick, usually completed within 30 to 45 minutes, and results can last from six months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used.
  • Skin Relaxing Injections: Skin relaxing injections target expression lines such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. These injections work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles, reducing their movement and smoothing out the skin. The process is brief, involving only a few small injections that deliver subtle rejuvenation results. The effects of these treatments usually last three to six months, after which the procedure can be repeated to maintain the desired aesthetic.
  • Lip Fillers: Lip fillers provide an effective way to add volume and definition to the lips, enhancing the overall harmony of the face. These fillers are carefully injected to achieve a natural fullness and symmetry, with results visible almost immediately. Lip fillers not only increase the size of the lips but also can correct shape irregularities or asymmetry, offering a refreshed and youthful appearance.
  • Lip Flip: A lip flip is a nuanced technique that uses a small amount of neuromodulator to relax the muscle around the lips, subtly flipping the lip outward to give it a fuller look. This procedure is ideal for those who desire a more subtle enhancement than that provided by traditional fillers. The lip flip can also help to smooth vertical lip lines, contributing to a more polished appearance.
  • Desirial Injections: Desirial injections are specifically designed to address vaginal dryness and atrophy, conditions often caused by hormonal changes such as menopause. These injections utilise a gel-like substance that not only helps to rejuvenate the vaginal tissue but also stimulates the production of collagen, improving overall vaginal health. This treatment can significantly enhance comfort and quality of life, with results lasting up to a year.

Procedure Preparation and Aftercare

To ensure optimal results and minimise the risk of complications, proper preparation and aftercare are essential. Prior to any injectable treatment, you should avoid medications that can increase bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen. It’s also advisable to refrain from alcohol consumption and smoking a few days before and after the procedure. Post-treatment, you might experience mild swelling or bruising, which usually subsides within a few days. We provide detailed aftercare instructions and are available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise post-procedure.

Safety and Side Effects

Safety is a paramount concern at Cheshire Cosmetic Surgery. All injectable treatments are performed using sterile techniques and high-quality materials, ensuring patient safety and efficacy. Side effects are generally minimal and temporary, but can include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Serious complications are rare and usually related to improper injection techniques, underscoring the importance of choosing a qualified and experienced practitioner like Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anca Breahna.

Our injectable procedures offer a safe, convenient, and effective way to enhance your appearance with minimal downtime. Whether you’re looking to restore youthful volume, smooth out lines, or enhance facial symmetry, our expert team is here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals with the highest standards of care.


FAQs about Injectable Procedures

What should I consider before deciding on an injectable treatment?

Choosing an injectable treatment involves considering your aesthetic goals, the specific areas you wish to improve, and any medical conditions that might influence the treatment’s safety or effectiveness. It’s essential to discuss these factors during your consultation with Anca who can recommend the best options for your needs and expectations.

How long do the effects of injectable treatments last?

The duration of effects from injectable treatments can vary significantly depending on the type of procedure, the products used, and individual factors like metabolism and lifestyle. Generally, the effects of dermal fillers can last from six months to over a year, while muscle-relaxing injections might need reapplication every three to six months.

Are injectable procedures painful?

Most patients report only minimal discomfort during injectable procedures. Areas being treated may be numbed with a topical anaesthetic, and many injectable products also contain lidocaine to help minimise pain. Any discomfort typically subsides shortly after the procedure.

Can injectable treatments be reversed?

Certain injectable treatments, particularly those involving hyaluronic acid fillers, can be reversed with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which dissolves the filler. This option adds a layer of reassurance for those new to injectables or concerned about the outcome of their treatments.

What is the recovery time after an injectable procedure?

Most injectable procedures require minimal downtime. Patients can usually resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is advised to avoid strenuous activities, excessive heat, and sun exposure for the first 24 to 48 hours to minimise swelling and bruising.

How do I choose the right clinic or practitioner for my injectable treatments?

Select a clinic or practitioner based on their qualifications, experience, and reputation. Ensure that they are certified and have a good track record with injectable procedures. Reviews and before-and-after photos of previous patients can also provide insight into their expertise and results.

What are the potential side effects of injectable treatments?

While injectable treatments are generally safe, they can cause side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days. Less commonly, there can be allergic reactions or asymmetry, which are usually correctable.

Can I combine injectable treatments with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, injectable treatments can be effectively combined with other cosmetic procedures for a more complex approach to facial rejuvenation. It’s important to discuss your overall aesthetic goals with Anca, who can design a treatment plan that includes multiple modalities for optimal results.

Will my facial expressions look natural after treatment?

The goal of any skilled practitioner is to enhance your appearance while maintaining a natural look. Modern injectable techniques focus on preserving natural facial expressions while reducing unwanted wrinkles and adding volume where needed.

How soon can I wear makeup after receiving injectable treatments?

Usually it is recommended to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup to the treated areas to prevent infection and allow the injection sites to heal. However, this can vary based on the specific advice of your practitioner.
