Cosmetic Injections – Brisbane and Gold Coast
Here’s everything you need to know to put your mind at ease before your first cosmetic injection appointment.
What are Anti-Wrinkle injections?
Anti wrinkle injections is made up of a purified protein made in laboratory conditions. They have been used by medical professionals for over two decades for efficient treatment for both cosmetic and medical purposes. When used for cosmetic purposes anti wrinkle injections have briefly minimised the action of treated muscles, resulting in smoother wrinkles on the skin.
The most common treated areas are forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are injectable gels that are made from a natural substance in your skin – hyaluronic acid, which is used to fill and repair volume. Dermal fillers are usually used in the lower facial area to help smooth out lips or lines around the nose and or mouth.
Who can get cosmetic injections?
Both dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections are appropriate for most people and there is no real age restriction, however, treatment works better on less efficient on less matured lines. During your initial consultation at our Brisbane clinic, one of our experienced staff members will talk you through the options that are available to you and refer you to a treatment plan that you are comfortable with pursuing.
How will the treatment go?
After the consultation, you will be booked in with one of our registered nurses. The nurse will then inject a small amount of the anti wrinkle serum into the muscles of the area you would like treated. The whole process only takes approximately fifteen minutes.
If you’re a little uneasy around injections or needles, don’t worry because the needles used for anti wrinkle injections are very tiny. Most people describe the experience a bit of discomfort but not as much as they expected.
The side effects
Anti wrinkle injections are a quick procedure that has minor side effects. After the treatment, you may notice a bit of redness in the treated areas; but this normally diminishes within 20 minutes. Other patients have experienced mild bruising and headaches.
How long do the treatments last?
Results in every person are different but normally it lasts for about three months.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost depends on what each patient wants to achieve and which particular areas need treatment. At Esteem Medispa our goal is to make all our services cost-effective and provide our patients the best care in the industry.
