Boasting minimal pain, at a fraction of the cost of surgery and over and done with all in the time it takes to have lunch (without looking like you’ve had any work done), anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are an increasingly popular non-surgical alternative for those looking to rejuvenate their skin.
If you’re noticing more wrinkles and lines on your face than you’d like but you don’t want to go to the extent of having plastic surgery, then you may be interested in the popular injection procedures available at Dr Joseph Rizk’s Sydney plastic surgery practice.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections help treat wrinkles that are caused by the continual contraction of facial muscles. They contain a special protein that when injected into a muscle, stops the muscle from contracting.
This causes the muscle to relax and once that happens, your lines will become less and less noticeable. When done properly everyone will notice that you look younger.
It’s only when administered incorrectly that you end up looking stiff and unnatural. When you’re researching where to get your anti-wrinkle injections done across Sydney, make sure you only consider qualified and experienced doctors.
The treatment itself only takes about 15-20 minutes. Most patients are able to receive anti-wrinkle injections without topical anaesthesia and report mild pricking pain. However, topical anaesthesia with ice or other agents may be beneficial to decrease pain associated with injections if requested.
Over the years repeated facial movements create lines in the skin, similar to a piece of paper that has been folded over and over. When you’re young your skin bounces back into place, but as you get older, collagen and elastin production decline and the lines may become deeper and more obvious.
Dermal Fillers are designed to fill in the wrinkles around your face. They can also be used to add volume to parts of your face and to create fuller looking lips.
Treatments tend to last between 6 months and 2 years, depending on a few factors such as the choice of filler.
Although there are different brand names of dermal fillers, it’s actually against Australian regulations to name them. If you decide to have a consultation with us, you’ll have each of your options explained to you.
To determine whether dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections are the right solution for your needs, call us on 1300 707 007 and book a personal consultation with Dr Joseph Rizk at Dr Joseph Rizk Plastic Surgery in Sydney today.
Dr Rizk advocates the National Law and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) guidelines that any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Dermal Fillers, more commonly known as Anti-Wrinkle Injections are one of the most highly sought after cosmetic procedures taking years off a person’s face making them look more vibrant, youthful and full of confidence.
The dreaded signs of aging: wrinkles, facial lines and loose skin. These unsightly features are a result of the stresses of life. The damaging rays of the sun coupled with gravity, loss of collagen and loss of skin elasticity all have a negative effect on facial contours and volume. These lines are usually seen on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes and can make someone look years older than they actually are.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers aid in rejuvenate damaged or aged skin to restore its youthful, tight appearance eliminating facial lines and wrinkles. This gives your face the rejuvenated, youthful appearance and volume you desire. Feel confident in your own skin and yourself, improve your quality of life with Dr Rizk’s tailored Anti-Wrinkle Injections at our Sydney clinic.
