What is Cosmetic Injecting?

Cosmetic Injecting is a medical-grade treatment that involves the injection of a substance underneath the skin to improve an aspect of your appearance. Examples of treatment are reducing the appearance of wrinkles through muscle relaxants or filling wrinkles with dermal filler, or volumising and augmenting lips with dermal lip filler injections to create fuller-looking lips.

Benefits of Cosmetic Injecting

Cosmetic injecting is a non-surgical procedure to smooth, remodel and augment various facial structures. Anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal filler or a combination of both are used to enhance natural features and restore a youthful appearance. Cosmetic injections are a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for anti-ageing.

How Long Do Cosmetic Treatments Last?

The longevity of cosmetic treatments will vary on the type of treatment.

Anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections usually last from three to five months, and dermal filler can last six to 18 months. Lifestyle factors, metabolism and the dosage used will affect the product's longevity.

The Formation of fine lines & wrinkles:

Fine lines and wrinkles are associated with the appearance of ageing. It is a natural part of ageing. Three main components of our skin that give us our youthful appearance tend to deplete over time, these include; collagen regeneration rate, hyaluronic acid base and skin elasticity. Breakdown of these skin components lead to creases, lines and wrinkles on your skin. Muscle contractions form “dynamic lines”- Overtime, repetitive muscle contractions cause reduce skin integrity and produce undesirable “static lines”. Due to placement, depth and direction, they can also make you appear of a sad, tired and even angry.

It is important to note that Anti-wrinkle injections cannot remove all lines. Collaborative and committed application of dermal therapies, active cosmeceuticals as well as anti-wrinkle injections is recommended to yield an optimal, long-term result.

How it works:

Anti-wrinkle injections block the chemical signals sent from the brain to nerves in the muscles that tell the muscle fibres to contract. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles that cause lines to form, it prevents the skin from wrinkling, in effect soften visible lines to produce a tighter and smoother appearance.

Prices vary. All clients must book in for a face-to-face consultation to allow the cosmetic nurse injector to conduct a thorough facial assessment and consultation. We will discuss your concerns and develop an individualised treatment plan.
