The goal of these treatments is to create a natural-looking enhancement to your appearance.
Often, people who know you well will remark that you look healthier, well rested, or refreshed.
“Overdone”, obvious, or unnatural look can occur with incorrect choice or placement of product. This is more likely to occur with inexperienced injectors.
Will the result last forever?
No, the correction is temporary. The results last between 3 months and a year, depending on the product used, the facial area treated and your body’s ability to absorb the injected material.
Will the treatment hurt?
Many of the products we use have a local anaesthetic blended into the injected material itself. In other cases, a topical anaesthetic can be used to numb the skin prior to the injection process. Either method significantly reduces the amount of discomfort experienced during the injection process. In addition, the injection process is over in a matter of minutes, and uses a very thin needle. Even sensitive areas such as the lips can be treated with minimal to no discomfort using this minimally invasive technique.
What are the differences between muscle relaxants and dermal fillers?
Muscle relaxants are used to treat wrinkles and lines caused by repeated muscle movement, such as smile lines and forehead creases. They work by temporarily weakening the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers are used to plump up the skin by adding volume.
They may be used to fill in wrinkles caused by sagging skin, to restore volume lost to the ageing process, or to enhance areas of the face such as the lips.
Can injectables be combined with other products & procedures?
Yes, many people use a combination of cosmetic procedures and products to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance. It relaxes the dynamic wrinkles, which are formed as part of facial expressions and when we are young they bounce back to give smooth skin. As we age this no longer happens and these wrinkles remain on the skin forming static lines; they are the lines which are present at rest. Dermal fillers, when placed just under the skin plump up these lines and folds and are often used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections.
