COSMETIC INJECTABLES


At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic our highly skilled cosmetic nurses specialise in performing advanced injectable treatments to improve wrinkles/fine lines, restore volume loss, enhance features, and strengthening of the skin. Our cosmetic nurses will assess you and your concerns before providing you with all suitable options. Each individual face is assessed and treatment tailored accordingly. The injectable treatments at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic include anti-wrinkle injections, and a wide range of dermal fillers. 

 

DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers are a facial enhancement and rejuvenation treatment for those who wish to smooth wrinkles, fill in furrows around the mouth, or add volume to the cheeks, lips, and around the eyes. Made from Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found in the skin which assists hydration by attracting and holding water.  When administered correctly by trained, well experienced and skilled cosmetic injectable nurses and Dr's, dermal fillers can produce effective instant results with minimal downtime and discomfort. Fillers are great when combined with other anti-wrinkle injections, lasers, skin therapies and skin care products as part of a tailored programme. 

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin with a very fine needle with the procedure taking approximately 30 minutes. Prior to treatment a topical anaesthetic or dental block may be administered for increased comfort. The type and amount of dermal filler used will vary from person to person and depend on the area being treated. Results are seen immediately. There are many dermal fillers available in Australia however The Aesthetic Skin Clinic only uses products that are well researched, proven and tested. Treatment should not be performed during pregnancy, breastfeeding and on those with certain medical conditions and medications. Therefore it is important to disclose your medical history prior to treatment.

 

LIP ENHANCEMENT

Lip enhancement can be achieved using dermal fillers for natural looking results or a voluptuous full plump depending on the individuals lip shape and desires.  Dermal fillers for lips can refine, fill, lift or plump the lips as well as re-define the shape of the lip and lip line. With techniques available at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic you can achieve improved shape or lift of the lip without necessarily having lips enlarged if this is your preference.

Lips can be re-contoured, rejuvenated or enlarged by placing the dermal filler along the lip borders (vermillion), or into the body of the lip for fullness . Redefining the lip border with fillers leads to a more youthful and appealing look. It can also prevent lipstick “bleeding” into the small lines around the lips and onto the skin outside the lip area. The Cupid’s Bow that extends up towards the nose from the top lip can also be further defined creating a more youthful appearance. To achieve optimal results a combination of steps are often used which are individually tailored to suit your desired lip enhancement goals.  The newest injectable fillers which are approved and reliable are non-permanent gels, designed with a viscosity and softness especially to suit the lip. These fillers are hypoallergenic, very stable and results can last anywhere from 6-12 months depending upon how much the patient animates and their own absorption rate.

Once injected, the dermal filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lip and improves their appearance by adding shape, structure, hydration and volume. Dermal fillers plump and lift the skin gently to replace collagen that has been lost by the natural ageing process. Semi permanent fillers work by creating an internal framework (or scaffolding) on which new collagen and elastin can attach creating the structure, tone and firmness for a more youthful appearance. Movement and sensation are not affected – your lips and skin will look and feel soft and natural.

 

ANTI WRINKLE INJECTABLES

 

Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a natural purified protein that is used to target and relax specific facial muscles. Once injected the substance blocks communication between the nerve and muscle causing the facial muscles to relax smoothing out lines and wrinkles. A small amount of solution is injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief. After injection it takes around 3-7 days to notice the effect with the full results seen at 14 days.

Anti Wrinkle Injectables have been used for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and for medical purposes for over 25 years. Side effects are very limited if performed by a qualified practitioner however treatment must not be administered during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and on those with certain medical conditions and medications. It is important to disclose your medical history prior to treatment.

Treatment lasts for approximately 3-4 months depending on the individual. During this time the results will gradually wear off with expression lines eventually returning to their original appearance. Regular anti-wrinkle injections may help improve the longevity of the treatment’s effects. 

Areas that can be treated are: 

  • Frown Lines

CHIN SCULPTING

Our non-surgical double chin treatment reduces fat under the chin and contours the neck and jawline via a series of clinically proven, TGA approved fat dissolving injections containing the key ingredient - synthesised Deoxycholic Acid. Deoxycholic Acid is a compound which occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, the compound works as a double chin treatment, breaking down fat cells which the body then absorbs and eliminates.

Every Chin Sculpting treatment is individualised. The number of injections and sessions required varies patient to patient as treatments are personalised to your own anatomy to provide the most effective, customized results. After an initial consultation to discuss suitability, your personal Chin Sculpting program will begin with two initial sessions of 30-60 minutes each. Sessions are spaced four-six weeks apart and you may require up to six sessions for optimum results. Post treatment downtime will vary, but some swelling and discomfort is normal. Visible fat reduction can be expected in two-four sessions.
