Why use Wrinkle Reduction?

Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals.

Frown lines result from muscle contractions, when you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.

Also, wrinkle reduction can be injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe underarm and hand sweating, also known as Severe Primary Auxiliary Hyperhidrosis.

What causes wrinkles?

Years of facial expressions like frowning and squinting cause the development of dynamic wrinkles including frown lines, forehead lines and crows’ feet around the eyes. When excessive, these have been linked to making us look and feel tired, angry or aged.

Many younger people use these treatments to stop the excessive muscle activity that causes wrinkles and thus slow down or stop the development of this ageing. Similarly, studies suggest that with regular treatments, even the deeper creases and lines of the face that are present when the face is relaxed will also repair, improve or even disappear.

What is the difference between Wrinkle Reduction and dermal therapy?

Wrinkle Reduction can ease the underlying muscle contraction which creases or folds the overlying skin, thus smoothing and preventing wrinkles.

Dermal therapy is used to fill wrinkles and furrows in the skin. Special fillers are available at Sutherland Skin Cancer & Laser Clinic that provide deep support, shape and fullness deep to the skin to enhance the lips, cheeks and chin plus treat hollows under the eyes, and mouth folds. Dermal therapy can also be used to provide long lasting replenishment of crepey, dry, sun damaged and ageing skin. The benefits you achieve are reduction in the signs of ageing in your face and skin, giving you a fresher, smoother, and more rested appearance.

Is Wrinkle Reduction painful?

Wrinkle Reduction is similar to tiny pin pricks and only small amounts of product are injected. They are done quickly but precisely and they feel somewhat like a small insect bite. Ice can be used to help anaesthetise the area.

When will I see the results?

You will first begin to notice a change after about day 3 and the effect develops over the next 7 days, with the peak effect seen after about 10 days. The effect usually lasts for 3 to 4 months.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are uncommon and may include some redness, small bruises or mild swelling, which resolve quickly but can be easily covered with makeup. It is best to avoid alcohol and fish oils for 24 hours before and after the treatment to reduce the likelihood of these side effects.

Every cosmetic procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand this. Your decision to undergo any of these procedures is based on the comparison of the risk to potential benefit. Selecting a skilled and well trained injector who uses the highest quality injectable products is your best protection against such adverse effects. The possible side effects and complications depend on the exact product and treatment being used. Our team of doctors and nurses will be able to answer any questions that you may have before making a decision on your treatment options.
