Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process but can also be the result of excessive frowning, squinting, smiling and sun damage. Facial lines begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibres in our skin break down and wear out.
Achieving a look that reduces the signs of aging is made easy through the use of injectable anti wrinkle treatment. The science of injectable wrinkle treatments is constantly being updated and offers real advances in a non surgical treatment for anti aging.
The face can be assessed as three different areas being the upper, mid and lower face. Each of these areas will age or change at different rates. The objective is to achieve a balance and enhance some features while disguising others.
It is important to understand the ageing process and how it affects the various depths of our facial features.
The four layers of interest to your clinician will be the Skin, Volume loss, Muscle activity and Bone structure. These valuable assets make up our appearance.
Targeting each layer can offer an overall balance and aesthetically pleasing outcome. Often a combination of treatments is necessary and your clinician will be happy to advise you of the best option.
Repeated muscle movement does wonders for our bodies where we can build and tone muscles while we stay fit and healthy.Our facial muscles do not react the same way, those muscles repeatedly used to frown, smile and squint can cause our skin to retain 'static' lines and wrinkles which become deeper with time and lack of prevention.
Muscles relaxants target those specific muscles to decrease their movement and hence improve the overall appearance giving a refreshed natural look.
Each person is individual in their needs so your technician will advise how much product you require to achieve your expectations.
Muscle relaxants can be used in various areas of the face and neck and results can be visible within 3 - 10 days. These fresh results can last up to four months when using the recommended dose.
After this time, the product will be broken down by your metabolism and your muscles will return to normal activity. You can then make the decision whether to continue with further treatments.
The ageing process can be cruel and facial volume loss becomes evident as our bone and muscle structure change. Curves and contours alter, jawlines drop, lips thin and brows fall.
Correction of these areas is possible with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are primarily a hyaluronic acid made from a naturally occurring sugar. Your metabolism will break this product down over a period of time, but dermal fillers can last from 12 - 18 months.
Dermal fillers of hyaluronic acid replace volume loss but do not generate collagen. Lips can become fuller, more defined and youthful. The frame around the lips is also important and can be rejuvenated with more support and structure added. Folds on lower cheeks and deep wrinkles can be minimised giving a more refreshed appearance. Deep, dark areas under the eyes can be improved and cheeks can be lifted and enhanced.
All faces are different and your technician can advise on the most effective form of enhancement.For more information on Injectable Dermal Fillers contact Cairns Plastic Surgery on 07 4031 5755 or email or view our website on www.cairnsplasticsurgery.com.
What is Collagen? Collagen is the key component in our structural makeup. Collagen keeps us looking youthful and our skin subtle. It also creates the volume in our face and provides an overall smooth skin surface. As we age, we lose collagen and the effects can be noticeable from as early as 30 years. Volume loss can be detected in the temples, cheeks and mid face.
Deep lines are evident between the nose and mouth corners as well as the lower mouth and chin area. Smile lines can now look like an accordion and the skin becomes crepe like and dehydrated.
The natural reproduction of collagen can be slow and ineffective in some cases.
Collagen Stimulants are designed to encourage your body to gradually rebuild collagen of its own. For a long lasting result, a collagen stimulant is a good start and if you are looking for a gradual result, collagen stimulants are a popular foundation in your beauty plan.
Hydration Boosters are the key to giving our skin a big drink.
Traditional moisturisers and skin care products can be applied to the skin but also washed away easily. For lasting hydration to improve skin smoothness, firmness and elasticity, skin boosters are designed to deliver hydration to the deep dermal layers of our skin.
A stabilised Hyaluronic Acid (HA), its main role is to attract water and can last up to 4 months.You can expect to look fresh and have a natural glow.
Skin boosters can be used in the face, decollate and hands. Used in conjunction with good skin care can achieve the optimal result and you can see the results immediately.
Full effect of the treatment can take up to 4 weeks and repeat treatment may be necessary depending on the skin type and expectations. Say goodbye to the crepe like skin that makes you look older than you are.
