At Timeless Cosmetics based in Perth, we ensure that all of your questions and answered and that we agree upon what results would best suited for you, as an individual. The use of Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal fillers together target unwanted wrinkles and folds.
The Natural Ageing process:
Ageing is a natural process which happens gradually over time. When asked about how our face changes over time, it’s too easy to focus on the outward signs such as wrinkles that appear on the surface. However, the outward signs of ageing are often a result of changes in the different layers of the facial structures. It is therefore important that we consider what is underneath the skin as well.
External and Internal factors cause changes to the surface of our skin as we age and cell renewal slows down the replacement of old skin cells with new ones. Internally the natural substances that provide the skin with support and lustre, such as elastin and collagen, and of course hyaluronic acid, decrease over time. The activity of sebaceous glands also decreases over time causing a reduction in the skins ability to retain moisture and stay supple. The single most factor that ages skin, especially for us in Australia is sun damage. This affects both skin texture and pigmentation.
How does it work?
Wrinkle relaxers are used to relax specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Once these muscles are relaxed, they are unable to contract and cause the unwanted wrinkle to occur. As a result, these lines gradually smooth. The most common areas are the frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines. Wrinkle relaxers are a natural purified protein that targets wrinkle causing muscles and relaxes them to create a rejuvenated appearance.
What does the treatment involve?
A small amount of wrinkle relaxer is administered into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. Generally the cosmetic treatment takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief, much like a small mosquito bite. At Timeless Cosmetics to provide maximal comfort, we can use ice, and comfort cream. There may be a small area of redness at the injection site which will settle down without down time. We provide mineral cover up if clients are returning straight back to work, etc.
Normal activities can be resumed soon after. It takes 2-3 days for the wrinkle treatment to begin taking effect and about 10-14 days to see the full effect. The dose recommended for the cosmetic treatment will vary depending upon your individual needs, muscle strength and the severity of wrinkle lines. At Timeless Cosmetics, your experienced clinician will know what the best dose is for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best desired results.
How long does the treatment last?
The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeated treatments, the effect may last longer. After several wrinkle relaxing treatments, most clients find that they have stopped using those strong facial muscles as much because they were used to them being relaxed.
At Timeless Cosmetics we use a variety of dermal fillers. Our clinicians will advise you as to which would suite your individual need. Dermal Fillers are designed to add natural looking volume and restore the youthful contours of the face, thus are carefully injected beneath the skin’s surface to diminish the depth of facial folds and wrinkles. They are also used to replenish the volume that has been lost over time due to the ageing process restoring structure and volume. (i.e. lips)
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are made from a naturally occurring complex sugar. Found within the tissues of your living cells, this sugar assists in the hydration of skin by attracting and holding water. It also combines with your collagen and elastin in the skin to aid in providing skin structure and elasticity.
Where are Dermal Fillers commonly used?
Lips: Dermal Fillers can be used to enhance or rejuvenate both the border and body of your lips. It can be used to create volume with a natural look (giving you back your lips that you had when you were younger) , increase the definition of your lip border, decrease lip lines that can cause lipstick to bleed, restore a more youthful and upturned angle to the corners of your mouth, and/or create a stronger cupid’s bow. (natural crescent shape to the upper lip)
Cheeks and Jaw line: Dermal Fillers can also be used to enhance or restore areas such as the cheek area (mid face rejuvenation) thus creating volume to the cheeks which can also decrease the nasolabilal fold (fold from nose to mouth). Placing filler to the jaw line and marionette lines (puppet lines) can provide more youthful contours and rejuvenate the mouth and jaw area.
Strong Frown Line: Sometimes Dermal Fillers are needed in conjunction with wrinkle relaxers to aid in smoothing out deep frown lines, thus achieving an optimal smoothed result.
