Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Enjoy a More Youthful Looking Skin with Anti Wrinkle Facial Injectables
Facial Rejuvenation focusses on undoing some of the effects ageing has had on our skin. Non-surgical skin rejuvenation, also referred to as a “liquid facelift” or the “natural facelift” may reduce 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 achieve a younger, plumper looking skin. The treatments may rejuvenate facial volume, support elastin function and increase collagen production.
Understanding visible signs of ageing
Static wrinkles are caused by a loss of hyaluronic acid, elasticity and collagen in your skin, or lifestyle damage from sun or smoking. 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 dynamic wrinkles created from repetitive facial expressions are unable to bounce back and thus form permanent grooves beneath the surface of the skin over time.
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive muscle movements such as those when you smile, laugh or squint. Overtime these lines begin to form deeper groves in our skin.
Younger Skin Prejuvenation
Prejuvenation is a preventative approach to reducing visible signs of aging caused by dynamic wrinkles. Prejuvenation treatments may keep 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.
Injectable Muscle Relaxants
Injectable muscle relaxants is common cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dynamic facial expressions. When tiny quantities are injected into targeted wrinkle forming muscles it blocks these nerve signals, causing the muscles to relax.

Injectable Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers may 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.

How Anti-Wrinkle Injectables Work
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle movement, such as those when you smile, laugh or squint. Common dynamic wrinkles include forehead lines and "crow’s feet" that form around your eyes. Tiny quantities of nerve blocking "toxins" are injected into these targeted muscles causing the muscles to relax. Relaxing the muscle activity can smooth out wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance.
How dermal fillers work
The hyaluronic acid completely integrates into the natural structure of your skin adding volume to the skin tissue to create a smoother natural looking skin tone while stimulating the production of collagen.
