Perhaps nothing is more gratifying for cosmetic patients than having an immediate correction of wrinkles or scars with a simple injection. Using fillers requires no knife, sutures or downtime. In the aging face, a loss of skin elasticity, fat and muscle tissue facilitates undesirable sagging.
Results from injectables and fillers can push the clock back few years. Fix any bump or dent in the nose, redefine a slack jaw line, remove wrinkles and crows feet. Fillers can also lift sagging brows, and improve the lines in the neck and mouth. Lips and lips borders can be beautifully sculpted with fillers, resulting in a fuller and more youthful appearance
The treatment is performed on an Outpatient basis and can be done immediately after a consultation if appropriate
Soft treatment includes:
- Injectable fillers. These improve wrinkles and skin quality, can be used for lip enhancement and lifting, eyelid enhancement, facial groove filling, tear trough filling, and other parts of the body
- Laser for skin rejuvenation. If you require Laser, we advise you to start Antiviral treatment one day before the procedure.
Doctors Barnouti and Kohout insist on performing these procedures themselves, instead of having staff provide the services. Despite the extra time it takes, the surgeons feel that their in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy allows for more refined injection techniques. The key to successful facial injections is a maintenance of balance in the face.
The effects last between three and six months, after which another injection is required. After several treatments, the effects may last longer, occasionally enduring up to eight months. We recommend treatment every three months for the first year, after which you and your surgeon will decide the best way forward.
This treatment is provided on the day of consultation and may require local anaesthetic. You will be able to drive a car after the treatment.
Fillers containing coarser particles are more slowly absorbed by the body, and are therefore used for filling deeper folds, augmenting lips and facial contours, whilst finer lines and wrinkles are treated with product containing smaller particles to subtly increase skin volume. There is no damage to the skin as the products integrate with adjacent tissues, allowing free passage of vital nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones to pass between fragments of the gel.
Antiwrinkle Injections are usually a purified protein toxin which temporarily disables the muscles of the face and neck that create the aged/angry appearance when flexed. This has been used in the medical field since 1973 and for cosmetic purposes since 1988. Injection techniques often vary between practitioners. Patients usually notice a clinical effect 1-3 days following injection, and the effect is maximal by 1-2 weeks. The benefits usually last 3-6 months and then resolve.
First, the muscles to be treated are identified by observing the patient making different facial expressions. The injectables, which comes frozen and dried, is reconstituted and diluted to a very specific strength. A few drops of The injectables are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates the wrinkle. When The injectables is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkle in the skin gradually softens and disappears. When The injectables is injected there is an initial minor sting for a few seconds. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort. The procedure itself usually takes less than 10 minutes. There is no immediate response to the The injectables injection. It takes several days for the muscles to be affected, at which time, one will notice the gradual loss of ability to frown or to create the lines affected by the treated muscles.
- Horizontal Forehead Lines
- Glabellar Frown Lines
- Temporal brow lift and elevation of the eyebrow
- Nasal dips: contraction of LLS muscle during “scrunches” of the nose, causing what is known as ‘mad dog’. This muscle can be injected on each side of the nose lateral to the nasion.
- Nasal flare
- Mental or chin crease
- Facial asymmetry
- Upper lip wrinkling
- Lifting the corners of the mouth
- Neck bands
- Adjunctive use of injections before, after or during surgery
