Anti Wrinkle Injections

Considering anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments?

After years of squinting, laughing and frowning, the skin around the eyes and forehead will often develop deep lines and wrinkles called “expression lines”. This is caused by a loss of the body’s collagen and is an unavoidable part of the ageing process.

This loss of collagen in our bodies each year also causes our faces to lose volume (a teaspoon of fat each year) after our mid twenties. The volume loss, lines and wrinkles are exacerbated by other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and lifestyle practices.

As we age the natural movement of our faces tends to exaggerate these when we smile or frown.

Anti-wrinkle treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections

After years of squinting, laughing and frowning, the skin around the eyes and forehead will often develop deep lines and wrinkles called “expression lines”. This is caused by a loss of the body’s collagen and is an unavoidable part of the ageing process.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

The movements of the facial muscles are controlled by signals from the brain. Anti-Wrinkle injections simply prevent the muscles from responding to these messages.

Anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the muscles of the wrinkle and frown line affected areas. This acts to relax the muscles, making them unable to move to the degree they normally are able to. This results in smoother skin which is less prone to wrinkling and furrowing.

Anti-wrinkle treatments & expectations

At your consultation our highly trained and experienced doctors and nurses, examine and assess your areas of concern and recommend a suitable treatment plan.

The anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the specific muscles that are contracting and cause the lines and wrinkles. The treatment is safe and effective, and takes approximately ten minutes. The pain is a minimal “pin prick” and no anaesthetic is required.

Anti wrinkle injection treatments usually last between three to six months and fade away gradually. Following several treatments the results may last longer and in some cases treatments may last up to eight to twelve months.

Dermal filler injections

The loss of collagen in our bodies each year also causes our faces to lose volume ( approximately a teaspoon of fat each year) after our mid twenties. As well as volume loss, lines and wrinkles are exacerbated by other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and lifestyle practices. As we age the natural movement of our faces tends to exaggerate these when we smile or frown.

How does it work?

Dermal fillers are an easy and effective way to rejuvenate, reshape and boost the natural volume of skin around the face area to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhance the natural contours. The treatment involves the application of Dermal Filler Injections into the affected areas. The ingredients in Dermal Fillers bind with the water in your skin to restore elasticity and fullness for healthy, natural looking skin.

Dermal Fillers are an effective way to control lines and wrinkles or to reshape and enhance the contours of your face. They can also create fuller, luscious lips to accentuate the lip line or create a more defined cupids bow.

Dermal filler injections treatments & expectations

Dermal Filler treatments involve the injecting of filler into the skin below the affected area, to supplement collagen lost by the skin. The treatment fills out lines and furrows to give you a younger softer appearance.

In the first day or so after your treatment you may experience some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated areas. These reactions are normal and resolve quickly.

Dermal Filler treatments usually last between six to nine months and fade away gradually. Following several treatments the results may last longer, and in some cases treatments may last over twelve months.

Fat Transfer to Face

Fat Transfer to the face is an alternative to Anti-Wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers. Patients are able to have their own fat transferred to their face to reshape and recontour the face, add volume and definition to the cheeks and lips, and also decrease facial lines and wrinkles.

How does fat transfer to face it work?

Using a small needle attached to a syringe, fat tissue is removed under vacuum by Liposuction from a donor site where your fat is most tightly packed, such as your buttocks, abdomen or your hips.

Excess fluid is removed, and the fat tissue is injected with another needle to the facial area, until the desired result is achieved. If fat is collected during another procedure, your surgeon can freeze and store it for a future transfer.

Fat transfer to face treatment & expectations

Fat transfer is performed on a walk in, walk out basis. If there is any swelling, it subsides in one to two days, and any bruising disappears in around five to ten days.

Over the first few months some of the fat may be absorbed by your body. A Fat Transfer treatment can last many years, but in some patients some portion of the fat grafted may to be absorbed by the body. To improve the success rate of a Fat Transfer procedure Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments can be combined to substantially increase the survival and growth rate of the fat.

While this information is intended to give you a good overall picture how muscle relaxants and fillers may help you, your doctor will need to see you to assess your individual circumstances. We can then explain all the options to you and assist you to make the right decision.
