COSMETIC INJECTIONS FOR WRINKLES

COSMETIC INJECTABLES FOR REMOVING WRINKLES AND SMOOTHING LINES

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Are you starting to notice some fine lines appearing, deep wrinkles in the face and neck, a loss of skin elasticity and sun damage?

In our youth, facial expressions create dynamic wrinkles that disappear when the face is at rest. Over time, these lines become deeper and ‘static’, meaning they remain, even though the muscle is relaxed. These lines can make your appearance look tired, aged and in some cases even a little bit grumpy.

At Bella Face we use a comprehensive range of medical anti-ageing treatments that are non-invasive and virtually painless. These treatments correct and smooth wrinkle areas for several months and actually work to slow the appearance of ageing over time. If you want to restore that youthful glow to your skin, come and visit Dr Nici in the clinic to discuss the range of options available.

How does anti-wrinkle treatment work?

Due to restrictions of the Australian TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration), the particular brands we use at Bella Face cannot be advertised. There are three brands available in Australia. All three are strains of botulinum toxin, a powerful protein that inhibits muscular contraction where nerves and muscles meet.

Through precision injections, we use tiny amounts of this toxin to reduce the movement of certain muscle groups so that we reduce the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by their repetitive movement. Over time, the treated area becomes smoother, leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.

Not only can the toxin be used for fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s muscle relaxing properties allow us to use it effectively for a range of other concerns too, such as facial slimming, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraine prevention and jaw clenching.

How are anti-wrinkle treatments administered?

At Bella Face Dr Nici uses precision injections using tiny needles. The amount depends on the size of the area being treated and the particular outcome you discuss in your personalised treatment plan.

How long does anti-wrinkle treatment take?

Dr Nici will schedule enough time to allow for a full  facial assessment and discussion about your personalised treatment plan and desired outcome. The actual injections only take a few minutes depending on how many areas are being treated and how many injections we decide on in your treatment plan. For returning clients, the treatment itself can take as little as ten minutes, making it a convenient and quick procedure, with virtually no down-time so you can return to your regular activities shortly after your appointment.

Are anti-wrinkle injections painful?

The injections are very quick and Dr Nici uses tiny needles to minimise discomfort. Some patients like to apply ice packs prior to the treatment and we also have complimentary medical grade aesthetic cream as well as nitrous oxide gas available.

How long do the effects of anti-wrinkle treatment last?

When performed by a trained and highly experienced doctor such as Dr Nici, the outcome of the treatment should last between 3 to 5 months. For the best results, we recommend scheduling an appointment 3 months after your first treatment to help maintain your enhanced beauty. After a series of treatments you may find you can stretch the time to 4 months as the duration of results starts to increase. It’s important to remember that every patient is unique and that results van vary from person to person depending on the dosage delivered as well as your natural skin movement and facial animation.

How will I look after anti-wrinkle treatment?

The small injections may cause some redness and a small amount of swelling, but these generally resolve within 30 minutes. In rare instances we see some mild bruising, but again, this resolves quickly. After an anti-wrinkle treatment, you can expect results within 3 to 5 days. It will take up to 2 weeks to see the optimal outcome. Dr Nici also schedules a post-treatment review appointment to follow up with her clients and ensure they are happy with the results.

What are the risks of having anti-wrinkle treatment?

At Bella Face you can be rest assured you are in the hands of a highly trained and experienced Doctor. Dr Nici has also specialised in skin cancer medicine so has not only the knowledge of the complex anatomy of the face, but also precise and gentle hands to perform these procedures.

There is risk of some redness, swelling, bruising or minor headache following a treatment. Some treatment areas carry their own particular risks which Dr Nici can discuss with you prior to your treatment.

What can be achieved with anti-wrinkle treatment?

  • Frown Line Treatment: They often make even the most joyful people look angry, gloomy or down. But here at Bella Face we can correct and smooth frown lines between the eyes and in the forehead for a smooth yet natural look.
  • Forehead Lines: When you develop static lines across your forehead it can make you look tired and this is a beautiful area to treat for that refreshed look!
  • Crows’ Feet: These can make you feel uneasy smiling or self-conscious having photos taken. This doesn’t have to be the case when cosmetic injections are carefully administered to these areas. Crows feet wrinkles be gone!
  • Marionette Lines: If a droopy mouth is concerning you, we can correct the deep creases using a carefully applied combination of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles surrounding the mouth and chin.
  • Dimply Chin: Some people develop an ‘orange-peel’ appearance to their chin during certain facial expressions. Anti wrinkle treatments can soften this area, making the skin appear smooth and radiant.
  • Jowls (jawline): Perhaps your jowls (the jawline area) appear saggy or loose, this can start to happen from around the age of 35-45. Jowls can be lifted readily with dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections so they appear fuller, smoother and more defined.
  • Smokers’ Lines: The fine lines that appear on the top lip can make the face look older than it is. It also causes lipstick to run into the lines and change the look of the lips. These lines can easily be treated with a combination of anti-wrinkle and dermal filler, making the top lip look beautifully rejuvenated in a matter of days.
  • Cheeks: Sullen and drawn cheeks can be a downfall on even the most beautiful of faces. At Bella Face we can easily help bring about a fuller cheek and youthful look.
  • Neck and Jawline Contouring: Treatments for defining the neck and jaw – often referred to as the Nefertiti Lift, is a non-surgical solution using anti-wrinkle injections to tighten up a sagging neck and jawline. The injections are targeted at the vertical muscle lines around the neck, with results noticed after a week or so.
  • Lip Flip: A very subtle treatment to enhance the top lip. This is perfect for someone wanting a beautiful enhancement to their luscious lips without having dermal filler treatment.
  • Gummy Smile: Some people show excessive gum above the teeth when they smile. This can easily be corrected with careful placement of anti-wrinkle treatment to stop the top lip from pulling upwards during a smile.
  • Bunny Lines: The little lines that crease across the bridge of the nose can be a softened beautifully with anti-wrinkle treatment.
  • Eye Brow Lift: When placed perfectly, anti-wrinkle treatment can create a subtle lift to the brow, opening the eyes and creating a refreshed appearance.
  • Platysmal Bands: These are the vertical strips of muscle that run up the side of the neck to the jawline. They create a hollow appearance that can age a face dramatically when the skin laxity increases and muscle tone diminishes. Dr Nici uses anti-wrinkle injections very carefully to soften these bands so that the neck appears smoother, creating a contoured jawline and more youthful appearance.
  • Facial Slimming: By relaxing the muscles that create a square jaw, anti-wrinkle treatments can create a more contoured, slimmer and feminine facial profile.
  • Migraines: The muscle relaxing properties of botulinum toxin can be used to treat and prevent chronic headache. For more information, or to book a consultation with Dr Nici please click here.
  • Hyperhidrosis: Muscle relaxants can be used to treat excessive sweating. This is a life changing treatment for people who suffer from this condition, improving your quality of life and self esteem. For more information, or to book a consultation with Dr Nici please click here.
  • Jaw Clenching (Bruxism): Botulinum toxin is a very effective treatment for jaw clenching, as it relaxes the muscles that clench and over time grind down teeth, often leading to chronic headache.

Can I combine anti-wrinkle injections with other treatments?

Yes. With age, our skin loses its elasticity, fat pads shrink and the bony structure of our face changes. Over time, with repetitive use of facial muscles, you may develop static lines - lines that remain even when the muscle has been relaxed. While anti-wrinkle treatments work beautifully on dynamic lines of expression, they can only soften, not erase static lines.

Sometimes we require dermal fillers to work on these areas, to ‘fill’ the deeper lines that are in the face at rest. The area you want to treat may require the use of both anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler.

Dr Nici can discuss these options with you during your facial assessment and development of your treatment plan.

How much do anti-wrinkle injections cost?

Dr Nici provides a complimentary consultation for all new patients to assess their unique features and facial profile, to understand their expectations and to formulate a treatment plan that suits.
