Factors Affecting Skin Condition
Your skin is a complex organ with changes over time impacting on structure, movement, volume, texture and complexion.
Externally, skin pigmentation and texture can be affected by sun damage.
Another change is the loss of volume that occurs with age. When we are young we have smooth contours, and our cheeks and upper face are full of volume. However, with age this can shift, and a loss of volume can make the skin thinner and the effects of gravity more obvious.
In addition, facial muscles decrease in strength and tone, reducing the support they provide to the soft tissues above them. Repeated action of the facial muscles means that dynamic wrinkles (formed during facial expressions) can form static wrinkles (wrinkles and folds that are present at rest).
Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers provide treatment solutions to rejuvenate your skin, reducing the impact of natural changes. Some of the most common applications are to:
- Soften facial lines
- Restore volume and fullness in the face
- Create fullness in the lips
- Temporarily reduce or eliminate forehead creases, crow’s feet
- Reduce wrinkles and diminish scars
- Create a more youthful appearance
Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are among the most popular non-surgical treatment solutions for simple and speedy skin rejuvenation. However, regular treatments are needed to maintain any smoothing effects.
Dermal fillers rejuvenate and enhance facial features and have a natural look and feel. The dermal filler is injected below the skin surface to ‘fill-in’ wrinkles and plump small areas such as the lips or re-volumise larger areas such as the cheeks.
The dermal fillers we use include:
- Hyaluronic acids – For thin surface lines, such as those that occur around the mouth and across the forehead.
- Fat injections – Fat tissue is taken from other areas of the body using a thin needle. The fat is sterilised and injected into the facial line or wrinkle.
Results are seen immediately after treatment and, depending on the choice of filler, the desired effects can last from between nine months to two years.
The procedure, including consultation, takes about 30 to 45 minutes with a small amount of discomfort at the injection site.
Although risks of complication are minimal complications can include:
- Swelling at injection site
- Scarring – remove
- Allergic reaction
The cost of treatment is approximately $550 per syringe.
Wrinkle relaxers are a treatment option for areas where repeated muscle movement is causing dynamic lines to turn into more permanent static wrinkles. A purified protein is injected into specific muscles, blocking nerve impulses, reducing muscle contraction. The result is a refreshed, relaxed and natural look.
Wrinkle relaxers can be used to treat:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Brow lines
- Lip lines
- Mouth frown
- Neck lines
The procedure, including consultation, takes about 20 minutes and results can be seen after five to ten days, and last between three to four months, depending on the site injected.
Treatment is relatively painless with a small sting at the injection site. Complications are minimal, but may include:
- Pain and bruising
- Slight asymmetry
- Further injection to achieve desired effect
The average cost of wrinkle relaxers is $350 per treatment area.
