Cosmetic Injectables

The face is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of ageing. This is in part due to sun exposure, volume loss and genetics. It may affect the skin, volume, muscle and bone.

If you have great skin now, the best thing you can do is to guard against the sun’s harmful UV rays to keep your skin looking its best longer.

Faces change over time. Think back to your facial shape when you were younger, or look to your father or mother so see what you might look like in the future. It is volume loss and soft tissue redistribution that influences much of this change.

What Does It Involve

Anti-wrinkle injections is a treatment option for those areas where repeated muscle movement is causing your ”dynamic” lines to turn into more permanent “static” wrinkles. These areas include, horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the brow and crowsfeet.

This treatment is a non-surgical procedure whereby a small amount of a form of natural, purified protein is administered into selected facial muscles by a trained medical professional using a very fine needle.

When will i see results and How long will they last?

The treatment takes around 10 minutes, is not painful and there is no down time.
Generally people start to see results within a few days of their treatment and it may take up to seven days for the full effect to be visible.

The effects of this treatment usually last up to four months and regular treatments may help improve the longevity of the treatment’s effects.

Will my facial expressing be affected By anti wrinkle injections?

These treatments are intended to enhance and refresh your look. Treatment will only relax muscles beneath the facial lines at the point of the injection (so that other elements of facial expression remain active). 

If you choose not to have further treatments, your muscles will eventually return to their former activity and your facial lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels. They will not be worse than when you started treatments.

Dermal Filler

Fillers are used to help you regain naturally-defined contours and youthful facial curves with natural looking, and feeling, results. Fillers are administered through a small injection, the procedure taking 15-30 minutes. The results can be seen immediately, and the majority of people resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. For increased comfort during administration, most fillers are specially formulated with a local anaesthetic.

In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a single chain sugar that is naturally broken down in the body within days. Fillers use cross-linked molecules to slow down their breakdown. This means results can last between 12-18 months and beyond.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have been used for many years, and clinical trials have shown they are well tolerated. It is most probable you will have no side effects at all but as with any injection, there may be slight redness, discomfort, swelling, bruising or lumpiness. 

These effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days to a week. Our Aesthetic Practitioner is available for a 30 minute facial assessment to discuss your concerns and to provide treatment options for you. The cost for initial consultation is $65.
