Question from a patient: I have an important event in a few weeks. Where should we inject first?
Answer from Dr. Tremblay: The choice of an area to treat depends on your anatomy, your age, the aspects of your appearance that you wish to improve and the time we have before your event. Several options are possible, each offering visible results in only one session.
The forehead, the glabella, and the crow’s feet: Almost all my patients complain of looking tired. Yet, neuromodulator injections can do wonders to relax drawn features, open the eyes, attenuate the wrinkles, and obtain a more rested appearance. Patients should allow 10 to 14 days for an optimal result.
The lips: A small quantity of hyaluronic acid, strategically injected, can make a remarkable difference. It is not a matter of volumizing in a disproportionate manner, but to redefine the outline of the mouth, balance the proportions, fill in the small lines and subtly repulp the lips. The labial injections’ results are immediate and last several months.
The outlines: One of my favorite rejuvenation techniques is without a doubt the “liquid lift”. The treatment consists in injecting small doses of hyaluronic acid in the periphery of the face to redistribute the volumes, and retighten the skin, improve the oval and better define the angle of the jaw. All of it for the purpose of creating a more balanced and harmonious appearance. The lifting effect is instantaneously noticeable with an action duration of 18 to 24 months.
No matter the injected area, it is preferable to make an appointment at least two weeks before a special occasion, both to benefit from the full efficiency of the treatment and to allow the eventual small hematomas to disappear. Mostly, it is important to entrust your face to an experienced injector who will know how to choose the right technique, the right product, and the appropriate dosage.
