Wrinkle relaxants in Perth

Wrinkle relaxants PerthWrinkle relaxers treatments in Perth have become an incredibly popular, sought after, and mainstream cosmetic procedure. For centuries, the pursuit of the “Fountain of Youth”, and the desire to slow or prevent aging, has been a driving force. As yet, these endeavours have failed to find a cure for aging, but therapies have been developed to slow the aging process. At the forefront of this, wrinkle relaxants therapies are very successful in slowing the appearance of aging.

Dynamic wrinkles are lines, folds or creases that are formed in the skin when the muscles contract. Over time, wrinkles can also develop due to loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, loss of subcutaneous fat, facial muscle and bone loss. Wrinkles can then appear at rest and are called static lines.

Wrinkle relaxants are very effective in reducing and even eliminating dynamic lines. Static lines cannot be eliminated by wrinkle relaxers therapies, but they can be softened and improved.

There is a lot of interest in wrinkle relaxers in Perth, and expectedly, prospective clients have a lot of questions regarding wrinkle relaxants. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding wrinkle relaxers.

What is Wrinkle Relaxants Treatment?

Wrinkle relaxers are derived from a purified protein Botulinum Toxin 1, that acts to reduce the transmission of chemical signals between nerve endings and the adjacent muscle. This prevents the muscle contracting, so in turn, the overlying skin fails to crease. The results are not permanent, the muscle is weakened, not paralysed, and slowly over time, the muscle regains its strength of contraction.

Are wrinkle relaxers treatments painful?

Wrinkle relaxant therapies are associated with minimal pain. Clients may experience a slight stinging sensation at the site of injection, which is brief and usually mild. The wrinkle relaxants are administered through tiny diabetic needles, and ice or numbing cream may be administered if desired.

How long do Wrinkle Relaxers last?

Wrinkle relaxers Perth treatments take up to 10-14 days to take full effect. Each treatment is expected to last around three months. If a client is able to maintain regular three monthly wrinkle relaxant treatments, then over time, they should be able to get longer time out of each treatment.

What is the best age to start Wrinkle Relaxants therapies?

Clients between the ages of 25-45 are likely to get the most benefit from wrinkle relaxers. However, if a young client has either dynamic or static lines, they are a suitable candidate for wrinkle relaxers. Often young clients will use wrinkle relaxants as a means to prevent the development of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles (caused by muscle contraction creasing the overlying skin) can be completely eliminated by wrinkle relaxers treatments. As you get older, static lines (lines that occur at rest) may develop. Static lines develop due to degradation of the skin structure, loss of collagen and elastin, and loss of volume. Wrinkle relaxants cannot eliminate static lines, they can only soften them. Wrinkle reklaxants are thus often seen better as a preventative therapy, rather than as a treatment of ingrained, established lines.

Are Wrinkle Relaxers safe?

Wrinkle relaxants have been safely used in cosmetic and aesthetic medicine since 1988. They have also been safely used in a myriad of other medical specialties for the treatment of many medical disorders including, cerebral palsy, atonic bladders, hyperhidrosis, migraine treatments, blepharospasm, and cervical dystonia. There have been several million wrinkle relaxers treatments administered since it was first introduced. No long term side effects have ever been found in any of the clinical studies done on wrinkle relaxers treatment.

There are a certain group of people who should not get wrinkle relaxers:

  • Pregnant women
  • Breastfeeding women
  • History of previous allergic reaction to the toxin
  • Pre-existing motor neuron disease (neuropathies, myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert syndrome)
What are the side effects of Wrinkle Relaxants?

Wrinkle relaxers treatments are relatively safe when administered by experienced, qualified medical specialists. There may be some minor side effects, which are usually mild and temporary.

Minor pain, bleeding and bruising, may occur at the site of the injections and some people may report a mild headache. Occasionally clients may get a slight temporary droop in the eyelids (ptosis). Double vision, difficulty swallowing or breathing, are extremely rare complications of wrinkle relaxants.

Wrinkle Relaxers Perth treatments are performed by an experienced, highly trained and qualified cosmetic doctor, who takes a great deal of care to minimise the risk of any adverse reactions to the wrinkle relaxants.

What happens if I stop Wrinkle Relaxant Treatments?

Wrinkle Relaxers Perth

In Perth wrinkle relaxers treatments have become a very popular, safe and the mainstay of anti-aging treatments.

Wrinkle Relaxant PerthWrinkles are folds or creases of the skin, and are a natural part of aging. As people get older, the skin loses elasticity, becomes thinner and drier, and consequently, lines and creases start to appear. Initially the lines appear only as a result of facial expressions, (for example, frowning or smiling) and then disappear at rest. These are called dynamic lines. As the skin ages, it becomes less elastic, so its ability to spring back is diminished. Wrinkles become deeper, and more permanent, even at rest. These lines are called static lines, as they are no longer due to just muscle contraction, but also to loss of skin elasticity, hydration and volume. Dynamic lines can be successfully treated with wrinkle relaxants. Static lines can only be softened or reduced with wrinkle relaxers, not completely eliminated.

Sun damage, smoking, family genetics, skin colour,, some medications, levels of hydration, will all influence the rate at which individuals will develop wrinkles in their skin. Wrinkle relaxants are a popular therapy to reduce, eliminate, or prevent the development of facial wrinkles.

What are wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxants are made from a highly purified protein derived from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. The bacteria itself is not injected, just a protein that replicates the action of the toxin. The wrinkle relaxers work by preventing the transmission of chemicals between the nerve endings, and the muscles, thereby temporarily preventing the muscle from contracting. This, in turn, stops the overlying skin from creasing, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles or creasing. Wrinkle relaxants are not permanent, as slowly the effect of the injection wears off, and the muscles regain the ability to contract.

Where can Wrinkle Relaxants be used?

Wrinkle relaxers can be used in several areas of the face to reduce, improve or eliminate facial wrinkles. These include:

In addition to reducing facial lines, wrinkle relaxers can also be used to improve facial aesthetics in a number of unique ways:

  • Wrinkle relaxants can be injected into the masseters to reduce their size and thereby leading to an improved, slimline, and less square jaw. Wrinkle relaxers injections into the masseter muscle is also used to treat teeth grinding.
  • Wrinkle relaxers can be injected into the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth (Depressor Anguli Oris). In some people these muscles are very strong and cause a downturned curve to their mouth causing a ‘sad’ appearance. The use of wrinkle relaxants will stop this downturn, leading to a happier appearance.
  • Wrinkle Relaxants can be used to create a ‘brow lift’. In some individuals, they may have heavy brows or droopy eyelids, and wish to raise the eyebrow opening up the eye area. Careful placement of wrinkle relaxers in the brow and around the eye, will open up the eye area, and produce a significant brow lift.
  • Wrinkle relaxers can also be used to improve the appearance of the platysmal bands in the neck, helping to tighten up the skin of the neck, and also improve the contours of the jaw line.

Finally wrinkle relaxers in Perth can also be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the skin (armpits, scalp, hands).

What do Wrinkle Relaxers treatments involve?

When you opt for a wrinkle relaxers perth treatment, you will be seen by a highly experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor, who will assess your face, and in close consultation with the client, will develop a tailored wrinkle relaxant treatment plan to achieve the objectives desired by the client.

The actual procedure is fairly quick and relatively painless. A small amount of the wrinkle relaxers is dissolved in saline and injected using tiny needles into the desired muscle. The patient may feel a stinging sensation, but this is relatively mild, and very temporary.

How long do Wrinkle Relaxant Therapies work?

Wrinkle Relaxers take up to two weeks to take full effect, but then generally last three to four months. Over time, if wrinkle relaxers are administered to the muscles regularly, patients will generally find that they will get longer out of their wrinkle relaxants therapies.

Perth Lip RejuvenationLip enhancement and Rejuvenation in Perth has become an extremely popular and sought after cosmetic procedure. Full, luscious, sensual lips are a highly desired aesthetic. Many women around the world are turning to lip augmentation or lip rejuvenation to achieve fuller, plump lips.

  • Plump up the overall volume of the lips.
  • Touch of filler into the borders to give a more defined edge, and reduce “bleeding” of lipstick into fine lines around the lips.
  • Correct any asymmetries that may be present in the lip, using lip augmentation to produce more proportionate and balanced lips.
  • Soften lines or wrinkles in the peri-oral areas, particularly ‘smokers lines.
  • Reduce folds around the mouth by using lip rejuvenation dermal fillers to replace volume lost.

As you can see, Lip Rejuvenation Perth can be used to achieve a lot more than just bigger, plumper lips.

What is Lip Augmentation Perth?

Lip augmentation procedures involve the strategic placement of dermal fillers into the lips and surrounding areas to improve, enhance or restore, volume, balance, and symmetry to the lips of the client. Lip Augmentation Perth uses a highly trained and qualified Cosmetic Doctor who will assess your face, and will develop a personalised lip augmentation treatment plan to get the most balanced and harmonious lips for the client.

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of non-permanent dermal lip fillers to enhance, and rejuvenate the lips and surrounding areas .Dermal fillers are a gel substance made from a naturally occurring substance found within our own skin and connective tissues called Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has the capacity to attract and holds incredible amounts of water, leading to more hydrated, supple skin. As these dermal fillers contain biocompatible components, they are safe and non allergenic when used in lip augmentation and lip rejuvenation procedures.

What is involved in Lip Augmentation Treatments?

Lip Rejuvenation PerthLip augmentation Perth is a safe and common cosmetic procedure. After the administration of anaesthetic, either topical or local anaesthetic, the lip rejuvenation treatments include the careful placement of small amounts of dermal filler throughout the lips (and surrounding structures if necessary) to achieve fuller, more balanced, symmetric lips. Smokers lines, downturned corners of the mouth, folds around the mouth, and defined lip borders can all be achieved through lip rejuvenation Perth.

How long do Lip Augmentation Treatments last?

Lip Augmentation Perth treatments are non permanent treatments. The treatments can last anywhere between ten to twelve months, as over time, enzymes within the client’s own skin will steadily break down the biocompatible filler. The effects of the lip rejuvenation treatments are seen immediately after the treatment. However, as the lip fillers are hydrophilic (that is attract lots of water), the full effect of lip augmentation may be seen up to a few weeks later as the filler swells and matures.

Some factors that may affect the longevity of the Perth Lip rejuvenation treatment include the metabolism of the patient, and other lifestyle activities including physical activity, smoking, sun exposure, and weight loss.

What are the risks or side-effects of Lip Rejuvenation Treatments?

Perth Lip Rejuvenation treatments are by performed by a very experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor. Lip Augmentation is a very popular, common, and safe procedure. The dermal filler used is made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is biocompatible with our own skin, and is consequently non-allergenic. Previously, in the not too distant past, collagen was used as the dermal fillers, and this was associated with allergic reactions in a significant proportion of clients.

The main risks of lip augmentation or lip rejuvenation treatments include bleeding or bruising. Lips have a large blood supply, so are at significant risk of bruising post lip augmentation procedures. The use of blood thinners, anti-inflammatory usage, fish or krill oil, garlic, and alcohol, will all increase the risk of bleeding or bruising. Discontinuation of any medication prior to the treatment should be discussed with the Doctor at Lip Rejuvenation Perth.

Clients with a history of cold sores, should commence a course of prophylactic anti-viral treatment after the lip augmentation procedure, as the treatment can trigger a flare-up of a cold sore. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not have lip augmentation or rejuvenation treatments.
