+ ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS (BOTULINUM INJECTIONS)
All our cosmetic procedures are performed safely by our in house Cosmetic Physician Dr Sarah.
Anti-wrinkle injections can assist with:
1. How do the injections work?
The protein in the anti-wrinkle injections bind to sites where nerves and muscles meet and prevent the nerve from stimulating the muscle to contract. The muscle is then unable to contract fully and the formation of lines from muscular contractions is prevented. Hence, the frown lines aren’t able to be formed, crow’s feet diminish, and forehead lines are less distinct.
2. Are the injections safe?
The long-term safety of these injections has been well established. They were first introduced in the 1960s to help treat strabismus or eye squints. It was then discovered that botulinum was also very effective at reducing fine lines – hence, the cosmetic use. There have been many long-term studies of patients that have received botulinum injections and they all demonstrate long term safety. In the short term, there are some possible side effects including bruising, swelling and headache. These are not common, but should they occur, resolve within a few days usually.
3. How long do the injections take to work?
One normally sees the effect of the injections within a few days to maximum 2 weeks.
4. How long does it last?
Usually 3-4 months. However, this varies between individuals from 6 weeks to 6 months.
5. What happens when the injections wear off? Can I look worse?
No. You gradually just go back to how you looked before the injections. In fact, the lines may never be as deep as before you had the injections. Often, after you’ve had injections several times at an interval of about 3-4 months, you can drop the frequency down to 6 monthly or even yearly as the muscles are retrained not to contract as much so the frown often doesn’t return, and the crow’s feet look softer for longer.
+ DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers are injected into lips plumping and shaping them and filling unwanted facial lines.
Dermal Fillers can help with:
1. What are dermal fillers made of?
The dermal fillers that Dr Sarah uses are made of hyaluronic acid. Our bodies have natural hyaluronic acid in them that plumps out our skin. The dermal fillers contact a synthetically produce hyaluronic acid that mimics our bodies natural hyaluronic acid.
2. What is the different between dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections?
Dermal fillers are a gel mainly used to treat lines that aren’t created by muscle movement. For example, dermal fillers are used to plump lips, fill smokers’ lines, fill marionette lines and nasolabial folds, fill cheeks to lift the face and jowls, fill tear troughs and under eye hallows and other accordion lines at the side of the face.
3. Can you use anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler together?
Absolutely. Depending on what area you are treating, they work extremely well in combination.
4. How long will dermal fillers last?
They usually last between 6 months to a year. However, longevity can range from individual to individual and be anywhere between 3 months to 1 year. Often people who exercise a lot, have a high metabolism of dermal fillers which breaks them down faster (sometimes being a couch potato is beneficial!)
5. What are the side effects of fillers?
The most common side effects of fillers are bruising and swelling. You may also be able to feel tiny ‘bumps’ underneath the skin for a few days after the fillers are done. The usually don’t last long and are not visible, even though they can be palpated. Gentle massage of the skin usually dissipates the bumps. As with all treatments, there may be side effects. However, these are rare and any potential side effects are discussed with you by Dr Sarah before your treatment.

+ MASSETER REDUCTION OR JAWLINE SLIMMING
This procedure is performed by injecting muscle relaxants into the masseter muscles.
Masseter reduction or jawline slimming is associated with overuse from habitual teeth grinding, causing headaches and lock jaw. Over time this alters the shape of the lower face, creating a square jaw line. This cosmetic procedure to slim the jawline will the reduce soreness tension and discomfort associated with the muscle being overused. It is a simple procedure which is why it has become so popular
Lipodissolve is a non-surgical procedure during which tiny injections of medications are administered directly into the areas of fat. The treatment causes the fat cells to melt away and then dissolve, with the remaining cellular material being reabsorbed or metabolised by the body. It is considered a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to liposuction for treatment of pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
