COSMETIC SERVICES


We do cosmetic injectables (anti-wrinkle injections) and chemical peels at our clinic. All our cosmetic services are performed by the doctor herself and not a nurse or dermal technician. 

HOW DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS WORK?

Anti wrinkle injections are purified proteins. When injected into muscles it blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscle. Therefore, the injected muscle can’t contract. The overlying skin smooths out.

HOW LONG DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS LAST?

It varies from patient to patient, for most patients it last approximately 4 months.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS TO START WORKING?

You will notice a difference in about 4 days. The maximum effect happens at 2 weeks. For those preparing for an upcoming special occasion, we advise that you schedule your anti-wrinkle appointment at least two weeks before the event to allow the treatment to show its best results.

WHAT ARE RISKS FOR ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

Generally they are very safe. Bruising can happen but it is very rare and does resolve very quickly. Sometimes, the upper eyelid can be a bit droopy but again this is very rare and does resolve.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO BEFORE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

Cleanse your face and take your make up off before coming in. Do not take any blood thinning medications like Nurofen or aspirin 24-48 hours prior.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO AFTER ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS?

Sit upright for 4 hours. Do not massage face for first 24 hours. Avoid exercise, caffeine and alcohol for 6 hours after treatmen

WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?

Put simply, skin peels clear away old skin and stimulate the regeneration of new skin. The renewed skin is then clearer, smoother and more even. To do this, peels embrace the power of naturally derived acids or chemicals and different ingredients combat different concerns. Their potency can be dialed up or down to suit different skin types, so there really is a peel for everyone and every concern. They’re also one of the most affordable and effective ways to dramatically improve your skin.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Our skin naturally replaces itself every 28 days, but this process slows down as we age. The naturally derived acids in peels help to give this process a real boost. Some acids – known as AHAs – go to work from the outside-in, helping to exfoliate the dead skin cells that make our skin dull, instantly brightening, tightening and hydrating. Other acids – BHAs – penetrate deep into the skin and work from the inside-out, breaking down the oil and congestion that cause acne and blackheads.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED WITH PEELS?

 Chemical peels are a treatment that will gently and safely improve acne and breakouts, skin hydration, sun damaged skin and lines and wrinkles. Our chemical peels are from the Synergie Skin skincare ranges. Results will be seen quickly and without downtime. The perfect peel for your skin condition will be chosen by our doctor. The goal is a brighter, healthier complexion. Chemical peels can effectively diminish the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, blemishes and more with little to no trauma to healthy skin cells.
