Bo­tox and fillers for wrin­kle correction

Central Leader - - HEALTH& WELL-BEING -

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.

Con­tact the Skin In­sti- tute Pon­sonby on 376 8888 for a FREE 15 minute cos­metic con­sul­ta­tion with one of the spe­cial­ist nurses to dis­cuss their to­tal ap­proach to your skin. www.skinin­sti­tute. co.nz
