What can I expect in my cosmetic medicine consultation with the doctor?
Our compassionate team of doctors will discuss what you would like to achieve through cosmetic medicine and complete an individual movement analysis of your face. They will then recommend the most appropriate treatment for you to achieve the most beautiful, natural-looking results. Your initial consult is 30 minutes in length, which gives you the option to have the treatment on the day if you wish.
How do you treat forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet?
Anti-wrinkle injections involve a series of tiny injections into the facial muscles to be treated. This results in a smoother, refreshed facial appearance by relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. This treatment prevents existing lines from becoming more obvious and also prevents new lines from forming.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
Anti-wrinkle injections are not permanent, your facial expression lines will gradually return, usually 3-4 months after a treatment. At this time you will require a follow-up treatment to maintain the effects of the muscle relaxant. Most clients choose to have repeat injections approximately 3-4 times a year.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers can be used to restore lost volume to almost any area of the face. Lip fillers can provide definition to the lips as well as volume. Cheek fillers can support the tissues of the face from gravity pulling them down, as well as adding a wow factor! Dermal fillers generally last between 9-12 months; this does vary from person to person, and can be influenced by external factors. Your doctor can inform you of how dermal fillers may work for you.
I’m worried that it will hurt, is the procedure painful?
Every care is taken by our injectors to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you. Most clients report minimal unpleasant sensation during the treatment.
