Blog, Skin Treatments

Welcome to the World of Injectable Treatments at Pulse Light Clinic, where science meets artistry to redefine beauty. In today’s era, achieving youthful, radiant skin is no longer a distant dream but a tangible reality. Injectable treatments offer a non-invasive, effective solution to address various skin concerns and enhance natural beauty. Let’s embark on a journey to explore the transformative power of injectables and discover the comprehensive range of options available at Pulse Light Clinic.

What are Injectables?

Injectable treatments encompass diverse procedures designed to rejuvenate and enhance the skin’s appearance. These treatments offer personalised solutions tailored to individual needs, from smoothing out wrinkles to restoring volume and reshaping facial contours. They can be used on almost any body area, including the face, neck, hands, and décolletage.

Different Types of Injectable Treatments Offered at Pulse Light Clinic

At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer a wide range of injectable treatments to address diverse concerns:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

These injections use botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They are often used to treat dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements such as frowning and squinting. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used as a preventative measure to delay the formation of wrinkles.

Procedure: A small amount of the toxin is injected into specific face areas using a fine needle. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with minimal downtime.

Areas Treated: Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and other facial wrinkles.

Duration: The full effects typically take 3-5 days to be seen, and results can last from three to six months. Regular touch-ups are recommended to maintain the desired effect.

Cost: Anti-wrinkle injections vary depending on the area being treated and the amount of product needed. At Pulse Light Clinic, one area starts at £199, and three regions £349.

Side Effects: Some common side effects may include redness, bruising, and minor swelling at the injection site. These will typically subside within a few days.

Dermal Fillers

Another popular treatment for reducing wrinkles is dermal fillers. These are injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to add volume and hydration to the skin.

Areas Treated: Dermal fillers can plump up areas with deeper wrinkles, such as smile lines and marionette lines (lines around the mouth).

Duration: Results from dermal filler injections typically last longer than anti-wrinkle injections, with some lasting up to 18 months.

Side Effects: Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. However, these usually subside within a few days.

Cost: Dermal filler treatments vary depending on the type and amount of filler used. 1ml at any injection site costs £449 at Pulse Light Clinic.

Maintenance: Touch-up injections are recommended every 6-12 months to maintain optimal results.

Profhilo Injections

Profhilo treatment is a newer type of dermal filler that also contains hyaluronic acid. However, unlike traditional fillers, Profhilo spreads out more evenly under the skin, stimulating elastin and collagen production for long-term effects.

Areas Treated: Profhilo can be used on the face, neck, and hands to improve skin texture and hydration.

Duration: Results from Profhilo injections can last up to 6 months or longer.

Side Effects: Similar side effects as traditional dermal fillers may occur, but they are typically milder due to the lower concentration of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo.

Cost: Profhilo price may vary depending on the number of treatment areas and the amount of product used. One 2ml treatment of Profhilo costs £399, and three treatments £999.

Aqualyx Injections

Also known as “fat-dissolving injections,” Aqualyx is a non-surgical procedure that targets stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the chin, abdomen, thighs, and knees. The solution contains deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fat cells to be naturally eliminated by the body.

Benefits: Aqualyx can help contour and shape areas of the body by reducing unwanted fat deposits. It is also a minimally invasive alternative to liposuction.

Procedure: A small needle injects the solution directly into the targeted area. Multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results, each lasting 20-30 minutes.

Side Effects: Common side effects include bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site. These should subside within a few days.

Results: Results can vary depending on individual factors such as body type and the amount of fat targeted. Most people start seeing results after 2-4 sessions, with full effects visible after 6-8 weeks.

Maintenance: Following proper diet and exercise habits can help maintain the results of Aqualyx treatments. However, weight gain can affect the treated areas just like any other part of the body.

Cost: Aqualyx treatments may vary depending on the number of sessions needed and the size of the targeted area. One treatment targeting facial fat costs £399, and one treating body fat £599.

Non-Surgical Nose Job

This procedure involves injectable fillers to reshape and contour the nose, providing immediate results with little to no downtime.

How it works: During a non-surgical nose job, a trained medical professional will use dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite to add volume to specific areas of the nose. These fillers can be strategically placed to smooth out bumps, straighten out a crooked bridge, or lift and define the tip of the nose.

Procedure: typically takes less than an hour and requires minimal numbing cream, making it virtually painless.

Results: They are visible immediately after the treatment and can last up to 12-18 months, depending on the type of filler used.

Benefits: Aside from being less invasive and requiring no downtime, a non-surgical nose job also allows for more precise shaping and contouring than traditional rhinoplasty. Using injectable fillers also means no risk of scarring or prolonged swelling.

Possible risks: These may include bruising, swelling, redness, and discomfort at the injection site. In rare cases, more serious complications, such as infection or nerve damage, can occur. To minimise these risks, it is crucial to carefully research and choose a reputable and trained provider.

Cost: A non-surgical nose job costs £549 for 1ml of filler. This is significantly less expensive than a traditional rhinoplasty, which typically costs around £6000 and permits the opportunity for removal and reshaping if the client is not satisfied.

Hydro Deluxe Injections

Hydro deluxe filler is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to maintain skin elasticity and hydration. It typically lasts for around 12-18 months before being gradually absorbed by the body.

Procedure: Relatively quick, usually taking only 15-20 minutes, and does not require any downtime for recovery.

Side effects: Bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site can last for a few days after the procedure. In rare cases, more serious complications, such as infection or nerve damage, can occur.

Cost: £429 for one face session and £1,139 for three.
