With so many cosmetic injectables available on the market in Australia, determining which treatment is best suited to your individual skin concerns can be confusing. Enhancing your natural beauty and restoring your confidence starts with knowing which non-surgical treatment is right for both your problem area and your skin type.
From injections for your double chin to acne scar fillers – this guide is designed to help you understand what to expect when choosing non-invasive aesthetic treatments.
What is the best solution for lines and wrinkles?
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used for individuals that want to prevent or reduce lines and wrinkles on the face. As a popular anti-aging solution in Melbourne, they work by injecting a small amount of prescription-only medication into specific parts of the face to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Suitable for both men and women that want to look their natural best, they offer a fast, affordable way to restore a youthful appearance – with typically no downtime. Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used on the forehead, crow’s feet and on frown lines and most patients see results within 7-14 days following the treatment. Depending on the individual, results tend to last for 3-4 months.
Non-surgical face lifts
A “non-surgical face lift” rejuvenates the face by targeting key areas, and is recommended for those who have noticed deeper lines forming in their face as they age. The process involves dermal fillers that are injected into target areas and is popular for the treatment of nasolabial folds (lines running from the corners of the nose to the mouth) and Marionette’s lines (that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin.)
We add fillers slowly and patients can expect to need more than one treatment; the amount and frequency of dermal filler can be advised prior to your first procedure. In most cases, dermal filler lasts for three to six months.
How can I reduce acne scars?
Though all types of scars are different, some acne scars can be effectively treated with dermal fillers. Dermal filler is often the preferred choice for deep scars and ice-pick scars, reducing their appearance when injected under the skin to reduce the depth of the trough. This treatment may be unsuitable for smaller scars and your therapist might suggest skin needling with Dermapen or Laser Genesis treatment instead as an alternative.
The virtually painless treatment takes just a few minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated, and patients can expect results to last between 6 and 18 months before it will need to be repeated.
How can I reduce my double chin?
Double chin fat dissolving injections
Patients that want to firm their face can look to double chin fat loss injections, whereby prescription-only medication is injected into the preplaysmal (“double chin” fat). The body then naturally breaks down and eliminates fat cells over the next few weeks and months, to slim and tone the skin around the chin.
This is a permanent solution that yields results in around six weeks post-treatment. Most patients will require a number follow-up session to improve the results. Double chin injections are suited to patients that want to achieve natural-looking results but do bear in mind that the treatment triggers an inflammatory process that lasts 2-3 days and you may experience swelling in this time.
