If you are concerned with the aging process causing fine lines and wrinkles or wanting a little volume we offer Cosmetic Injections as a fast approach to relaxing the muscle and plumping or adding volume to the skin.
Adding volume creates youthful looking skin
An instant way to add volume and hydration to the face, dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic gel, which is naturally found in the body. These are injected into the face to achieve fullness, where you have lost volume due to ageing, correct facial symmetry or enhance features such as the chin, cheeks or lips.
Relaxes facial muscles to reduce wrinkles
This treatment will help reduce and prevent wrinkles that have formed from the natural ageing process and continuous muscle movement. A simple injection of purified protein will temporarily relax facial muscles, resulting in softened lines and visibly younger looking skin.
The lines and wrinkles on our face can be defined as either static or dynamic.
Dynamic lines are caused by movement of the facial muscles like crow's feet and frown lines.
Static lines are caused by a combination of factors, ageing, sun exposure, smoking, dehydration and even weight loss.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST CARE?
Pre treatment care: We recommend wearing a daily sunscreen prior to your treatment to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If your skin is peeling or sunburnt, we recommend that you wait a few weeks for the peeling or burn to subside. Please do not use any prescription Vitamin A for 1 week prior to your treatment.
Post Treatment: We recommend no harsh acids or scrubs for at least 5 days post treatment. Your dermal therapist will guide you on a recommended skin care program for your skin concerns. Sunscreen must be worn for a minimum of 14 days post treatment to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun.
