Facial Skin Rejuvenation

Enjoy a more youthful looking skin with facial injectables

Non-surgical skin rejuvenation, also referred to as a “liquid facelift” or the “natural facelift” reduces the signs of ageing without the downtime of surgery at a fraction of the cost.  A combination of strategically placed injectable nerve blocking muscle relaxants and dermal fillers are injected in tiny quantities to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging to create a younger, plumper looking skin. The treatments rejuvenate facial volume, support elastin function and increase collagen production.

Understanding visible signs of ageing

As we age, the body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, causing skin to become less firm and lose its flexibility. As a result the wrinkles created from repetitive facial expressions such as smile lines are unable to bounce back and form permanent grooves beneath the surface of the skin over time. Prejuvenation can delay visible signs of ageing of younger skin for as long as possible, while rejuvenation focuses on the recovery of older skin.

Skin prejuventaion with injectable muscle relaxants

Facial prejuvenation is a preventative approach to reducing visible signs of aging. Prejuvenation treatments keeps the skin smooth as you age by preventing these grooves from being formed in the first place. Muscle relaxants injected into targeted muscles are able to block nerve signals that trigger the muscles to contract, preventing wrinkles from developing over time.

Skin rejuvenation with dermal fillers

Dermal fillers rejuvenate the appearance of your skin by smoothing out deeper wrinkles that are no longer able to bounce back naturally. The best fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, one of the naturally occurring elements in the skin responsible for around 50% of its structure. It has the ability to retain 1000 times its weight in water and effectively adds volume to the skin. You can read more about the best brand of dermal fillers used at our practice and how they work.
