Face-lift for the 21st Century: Components of Non-Surgical Facial Restoration. Part Two

After analysing your facial structure and skin type, Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic’s specialist anti-wrinkle nurse injector determines the best combination of therapies for your unique situation. Imagine your face as a grid, where each square has an impact on the others, and each has its own challenges. There is a solution to enhance each ‘square’ of your face.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

When the muscles that pull your face into a tired, stressed presentation are relaxed using anti-wrinkle injections, the damaging and ageing effects of frowning, or other habitual distortion of your face are reduced. Anti-wrinkle injections use a purified protein muscle relaxant. The simple procedure has little discomfort and its results can be seen within a few days of treatment. The injections block the chemical signals that cause your facial muscles to contract, thereby preventing them from pulling or contracting inwards and downwards to create the lines and wrinkles.

Perhaps you have frown lines between your eyebrows and on the bridge of your nose, smile lines on the side of your nose or fanning out from the corners of your eyes; perhaps you have strong forehead creases. You may have lines or wrinkles around your mouth or thick bands across your neck. Any of these can be treated by anti-wrinkle injections. By tackling the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles, these injections help to address the cause of the problem.

Dermal Fillers

A young person’s skin has a youthful fullness and suppleness. With age, our skin gradually loses the substances that support this – collagen and elastin, along with hyaluronic acid and fat. This loss causes your skin to sag and crease. Dermal fillers are used to help ‘plump’ your skin and assist your body to produce more of the collagen that gave you your youthful appearance.

Dermal flller injections are used to smooth wrinkles and folds anywhere on your face. They can also help with the creases that develop at the corners of your nose and mouth, and help restore volume in your cheeks, under your eyes, along your jaw line and your temples. They can be used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections. Each treatment can be complementary and each is capable of supporting the benefits of the other.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic’s specialist nurse injector may also recommend that you enhance and prolong the benefits of your other treatments by using the relatively new treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation. This is a completely natural treatment, using your body’s chemistry and cells. It works by taking your own blood cells to create a ‘platelet rich plasma’, which is then injected into the skin area to be treated. This treatment helps to strengthen your skin, particularly addressing the problems of thinning skin, fine wrinkles, poor texture and sun damage. It is now recognised as an important component of combination therapy.

Dr Konrat of Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic believes it’s important to maximise the effect and longevity of your treatment, while continuing to strive for a natural look. This combination therapy is a great way of achieving that goal. For more information, go to http://brisbanecosmetic.com.au, or call 07 3391 5710 for a confidential consultation. It’s only during a consultation that you can be fully advised on the best combination therapy for you.
