Even with excellent skin health, creases and sagging can start to develop and injectable treatments can be a great solution for those seeking an instant improvement without the associated downtime that cosmetic surgery involves.
These are small injections given into the muscles of the face to improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles in the forehead. They are also used to define the jaw line, slim the face and reduce a “gummy smile “or “dancing nose”.
Bruxism (teeth grinding) and Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can also be treated using these injections.
There can be some redness and swelling immediately following the injections, which tend to subside over a few minutes. Occasionally there can be slight bruising from the injections, which would subside over a few days.
It normally takes 2 weeks to see the full affect of the treatment, which can last for 3-6months.
Dermal Fillers are injections consisting of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is naturally produced by our body. They are injected into areas that have lost volume during the aging process, to reduce the sagging of the cheeks and hollows under the eyes; as well as plumping out facial lines and increasing the hydration of the skin.
Fillers can also be used to enhance your natural features by sculpting the nose, lips, chin and jaw areas.
These types of fillers are naturally biodegradable and are therefore non-permanent. The effects can be seen immediately and can last 9-12 months. There can be some redness, swelling and bruising which usually lasts just a few days.
