Fine lines & wrinkles

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and texture. Fine lines and wrinkles are formed when we make facial expressions. As time passes, wrinkles become prominent around the eyes, forehead, and glabellar areas.

Some external factors that can cause fine lines and wrinkles include excessive sun exposure, smoking, stress, an unhealthy lifestyle and diet; these will exacerbate the ageing process on our faces.

How does it work?

Botulinum Toxin temporarily blocks the release of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter) at the junction where nerve endings meet the muscle cells. Because the injection relaxes the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles, they will appear less obvious and your skin will appear smoother. The results are usually visible within five to seven days. A combination treatment, together with ablative and non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, can stimulate new collagen and elastin production within the dermis. The new collagen will gradually fill up the fine lines, wrinkles and creases to create a more supple and youthful skin.

Will my face look “frozen” after injections?

A common misconception is that the use of injectibles will result in a “frozen” face. During our consultation, I will explain more about this misconception, and how this will not happen when the injections are placed in targeted areas of your face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to create tighter and lifted skin. The final results are natural, and that you will still able to show your facial expressions.  

Is there any downtime?

Our friendly clinic assistants and beauty therapists will apply numbing cream to your face before the procedure to maximize your comfort. You might experience a tiny swelling that looks like a mosquito bite at the injection site, but this will subside within a few hours. On rare occasions, the tiny needle marks or mild bruising may last for a day or two. We can talk together more about possible downtimes if you require a more intensive combination treatment plan.    

How many treatments will I need?

The results of our FDA approved injectibles can last up to four months. Repeated treatments will be necessary to maintain the desired effects.
