INJECTABLES

Antiwrinkle

Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used to treat frown lines, forehead lines as well as laugh lines around the eyes. More advanced techniques can also be used to reshape the face and prevent the aging process. Anti wrinkle injections work by relaxing the target muscle that causes the creasing, minimising wrinkle formation.

The Procedure: involves placing tiny injections in and around the the areas of concern, eyebrows, around the eyes and forehead.

Results: It take approximately 2 weeks before results are noticed and will last approximately 3-6 months depending on individual circumstances. Anti wrinkle injections works very well in combination with modalities of anti aging provided within the clinic.

Downtime: It is minimal; there may be mild redness and swelling at treated sites and occasionally, mild bruising. These resolve within a few hours to a few days. You may immediately resume normal activities.

Fillers

Filler called Hyaluronic acid (HA) injected under the skin is a non-surgical approach that hydrates the skin and replaces the volume loss caused by the aging process. Filler is a gel like substance made from naturally occurring complex sugars. All fillers used in our clinic are TGA approved and are totally reversible.

The Procedure: involves injections a smooth gel (HA) under the skin into the desired areas, usually around the cheek, lips & mouth folds. You will see instant result. The body eventually absorbs the filler, leaving behind new collagen that was stimulated by the filler.

Results: They are instant. You will see instant results when using filler. Depend on the area injected, and the type of filler used, the results will last between 6-18months. Filler works very well in combination with other anti aging modalities provided within the clinic

Downtime: is usually minimal, however, depending on the area injected bruising and swelling is common and may last between 3-7 days.

Collagen Stimulator

Collagen stimulators called Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) injected under the skin is a non-surgical approach that corrects the hollowing of the face caused by aging. PLLA is a water solution that is injected across the entire face to create collagen stimulation (fullness) and creates firmness to the skin

The Procedure: involves injections of a watery substance (PLLA) under the skin into the desired areas. Unlike filler, you will not see instant results and may require multiple procedures depending on your age. The body eventually absorbs the PLLA

The Results: are gradual. You will not see instant results when using a collagen stimulator, however after repeated treatments, we suggest 3-4 treatments of one vial spaced 6 weeks apart, you will notice a nice difference. Results will last up to 2.5years. Once patients have had their initial dose, the only require a top up of one vial once a year. PLLA work very well in combination with modalities of anti aging provided within the clinic.

Downtime: There is bruising and swelling associated with injecting PLLA and can last between 3-7 days

Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP also known as Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in growth factors providing the latest technology in Anti aging. The treatment stimulates your own stem cells within the fat layer of the face to produce collagen and slow down the aging process. PRP addresses the common aging signs of fine lines and crepe skin. Areas that can be treated include

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Hands

PRP works very well in combination with anti wrinkle injections and fillers, providing the ultimate skin boost.

PRP treatment also stimulates hair growth on the scalp. When PRP is injected in the scalp it regenerates and restores blood flow to the redundant hair follicles and your hair begins to regrow. Combined with other treatments this is a very successful treatment for hair growth

Sexual health can also be addressed using PRP commonly known as the P Shot and O Shot.

The Procedure: is all done in clinic, our nurse takes your blood and spins it down in a TGA approved device. Platelets are then extracted and injected under the skin using small needles. This procedure is commonly used in conjunction with laser on the same day.

The Results: are gradual, clearer and firmer skin is seen at 2 weeks. Better results are seen with progressive treatment. We suggest initially having 3 treatments spaced one month apart and then repeating only one treatment every 6 months. PRP work very well in combination with modalities of anti aging provided within the clinic.

Downtime: There is bruising and swelling associated with injecting PRP and can last between 3-7 days.

Chin Dissolving

Excess fat or fullness below the chin can be treated with injections. The TGA approved injections contain a solution that is able to dissolve the fat and remove it permanently. This procedure is most suited to people with moderate to severe fullness under the chin (the double chin).

The procedure: takes about 15 minutes. Your chin will be marked up using a special transfer sticker. Each point will be injected with a small amount of the fat dissolving solution.

Results: This varies between individuals. For most people 2 to 4 in clinic treatments are needed to achieve pleasing results. These treatments are spaced 4-6 or more weeks apart. Benefits and improvement continue to be seen in the following months.

Downtime: The treatment itself is not painful, however clients do experience deep burning like pain 15 minutes after the procedure. The intensity of this pain dulls down over a few hours but will remain a dull ache for around 3-5 days. There is excessive swelling of the neck area for 3-5 days
