Wrinkles occur when we use our facial muscles to make repeated facial expressions such as squinting or frowning. With age the skin becomes less elastic and those lines in the frown area, on the forehead and around the eyes can become more permanent and noticeable. A natural purified protein can be injected into these areas to relax wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smoother younger looking appearance.
At the Peninsula Life Medispa Medical Aesthetics Clinic we use a medically approved wrinkle reduction treatment that has been widely tested and used safely and effectively in hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the world for more than a decade.
The treatment is a simple non-surgical procedure taking approximately 10 minutes. All treatments are booked for 30 minutes to allow for adequate consultation and treatment time. The treatment is suitable for both men and women and is a ‘walk in walk out’ procedure. Normal activities can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
After discussing the effect you desire and determining where to use the product to achieve the best possible result, a small amount will be injected into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. No anaesthetic is required and most clients describe the discomfort as a tiny sting lasting a few seconds.
The effects of the treatment begin in 2-3 days and full effect is seen in 7 to 10 days. The effect can last for 3 to 4 months depending on the area, the dose and individual variability.
Following all treatments each client is offered a complimentary post treatment 2 week review which gives you and the treating doctor the opportunity to document your “before and after” progress.
