Botox and fillers for wrinkle correction
The rise of medicallyinclined appearance treatments means ‘looking good’ has never been easier.
The majority of appearance medicine clients get their first touch of enhancement to address a problem that’s bothered them for a long time. It might be dermal fillers to enhance the lips, Botox to reduce the deep wrinkles between their eyebrows, eyelid surgery to remove excess skin, laser treatment to get rid of facial pigmentation and broken capillaries.
Botox is a treatment that relaxes the muscles into which it is placed. Botox injections are used to soften wrinkles, balance asymmetry, slim the jawline, lift the brow and correct a droopy smile, therefore giving a more refreshed look.
Any facial line or fold can be treated with dermal fillers, which can also be used to enhance lips and your appearance in a natural way. Treating upper lip lines – folds that run diagonally between the sides of the nose and corners of mouth, is a popular shortcut to a more youthful appearance. The tops of the hands can also be rejuvenated using fillers.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser treat- ments can be used to improve fine lines, skin tone, brown spots, enlarged pores, scarring and facial veins. This process stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin tissue and collagen regeneration, thereby tightening the skin.
Treatments for sun damage, wrinkles, facial veins, skin tightening and rejuvenation using medical grade equipment and highly trained staff are available at the Skin Institute.
The Skin Institute clinic located in Ponsonby has experienced registered and cosmetic nurses, who are available for appearance medicine procedures, including Botox, fillers, facial peels, medical grade Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and microdermabrasion.
While Botox and dermal fillers assist in reducing facial fine lines and giving subtle volume where required, IPL treatments are beneficial in decreasing sun damage, pigmentation, redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea.
The nurses offer free 15-minute cosmetic consultations, where patients can discuss their skin and what treatments may be best for them.
