They are becoming increasingly popular among men and women alike, who are looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and refine their overall look. Often used as a preventative treatment, they can be a quick and effective way to ‘stop the clock’ and boost confidence levels.
Our experienced doctors and nurses can create a natural-looking reduction in lines and wrinkles – leaving you with a softer and brighter appearance.
The most requested areas for anti-wrinkle injections are the dynamic lines around the eyes and forehead. However, they can also be used to minimise the lines around the mouth, nose, smooth the chin, relax the jawline, and neck bands and add life to the brow. One treatment usually lasts up to four months, leaving all your friends saying… “you’re looking’ good!”
Anti-wrinkle injections can achieve a tighter, smoother appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections block the chemical signal that the brain sends to the muscle telling the muscle to contract. The treatment relaxes and lifts the muscle, softening the look of lines and giving a tighter, smoother appearance.
It generally takes 3-10 days after the treatment for the maximum results to develop fully and re-treatment should not occur within that period. The effect can last up to four months, although with regular treatments it may be possible to reduce the dosage.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers.
How was anti-wrinkle discovered?
The original brand of anti-wrinkle injections has been used for medical conditions like muscular sclerosis for over 60 years. Doctors then noticed its value in treating patients with overactive muscles. Then, through extensive research, it was found to be highly successful in treating children with cerebral palsy.
The cosmetic use, as an anti-wrinkle treatment, was discovered by Ophthalmologist Dr. Jean Carruthers in 1987, when she used the product to treat eye muscle spasms and saw that crow’s feet around the eyes also improved significantly. She spoke to her husband, a Dermatologist, about her observations and he decided to investigate further by trying it on his receptionist. Hence the first anti-wrinkle treatments were born.
When will I see the results?
It generally takes three to 10 days after the treatment for the maximum to develop fully. The effect can last up to four months.
Enhance Your Natural Beauty with Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers add volume, create symmetry, and smooths deep wrinkles on the face. Giving you a refreshed and natural appearance. Most popularly used to plump lips and enhance the cheek bones, dermal fillers are a versatile treatment that can also be used to correct fine lines, smooth deep creases, restore volume and even reshape the chin and jawline. One of the most popular advantages to dermal fillers is that the results are instant – in just 30 minutes, you will be on your way to looking like the best possible version of you.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work by imitating a naturally occurring substance within your body – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. Its normal function is to bind water so it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body, such as joints.
By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise to the area instantly. This diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles and giving a natural softer look. The gel we use is very tissue-friendly and closely resembles that which exists in the body.
Is dermal filler permanent?
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment. Our experienced doctors and nurse injectors will guide you on the appropriate time for your follow-up appointment.
Do dermal filler treatments hurt?
This will really depend on the individual. The injections themselves feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. Some of the fillers already contain local anaesthetic which also makes the treatment more tolerable.
Can everybody use dermal fillers?
You must be over 18 to receive a dermal filler treatment. Dermal fillers should not be used in or near areas where there is or has been skin disease, inflammation or skin related problems. Dermal fillers have not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women, individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immunosuppressive may be more prone to infection by a skin injection procedure. During your pre-treatment consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history with your treating nurse or doctor.
