Is an anti-wrinkle treatment reimbursed by my insurance?
Does an anti-wrinkle treatment with injections hurt?
A little. You get small injections with a hypodermic needle.
How long does the result stay nice?
Will I have scars from the treatment?
No. Beauty treatments with a temporary effect consist of injecting wrinkle-filling products under the skin. Immediately after the treatment, you can see small spots in your skin, from where the needle has pierced the skin. However, these dots do not become scars and disappear within a day.
What are the long-term effects of injections to remove wrinkles?
If you have agents with a temporary effect injected, there are no side effects. However, permanent agents can cause permanent problems. Dr Schiettecatte only uses anti-wrinkle injections with a temporary effect.
What is the best age to start injections?
From the age of 35. Around this age, wrinkles are still shallow, making them easier to treat.
Is it true that you are better off starting with preventive injections?
That is a difficult question. It is true that every form of prevention ensures a better and fresher result. Also think about what you can do yourself, from good skin care and good hydration (drinking plenty of water) to eating vitamin-rich food. Also by not smoking and not sunbathing, your skin stays beautiful for longer.
How often can I repeat the treatment with anti-wrinkle injections?
As often as you like, with at least six months between each treatment.
On which parts of my body can an anti-wrinkle treatment be applied?
In addition to your face, you can also have your neck, décolleté and hands treated. Dr Schiettecatte uses the wrinkle fillers Restylane and Juvederm for this.
Can I appear in public immediately after an injection for fuller lips?
The skin of your lips is very thin and sensitive. The injections can make your lips swell significantly. Therefore, it is best to take a day off, to resume your social activities only the next day.
How do I know which injections are reliable and not reliable?
You can trust all those injections with a temporary effect that have been approved by the FDA and that have been on the market for at least 10 years.
What does it cost?
Very good experience!
