Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process but can also be the result of excessive frowning, squinting and smiling. Facial lines begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibres in our skin break down and wear out.

Achieving the look you desire can be as easy as it is quick!

The science of injectable anti-wrinkle treatments is constantly being updated and offers real advances in non-surgical treatments.

Muscle Relaxants

At Cairns Plastic Surgery we use a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smoothed, rejuvenated and a more youthful appearance. It is a simple and quick non-surgical treatment that delivers dramatic results.

One treatment of a few tiny injections relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to four months. To maintain the effect you will require repeat injections 2-3 times a year.

Injectable wrinkle treatments are one of the safest and most effective treatments in Cosmetic Medicine today. They have been used for cosmetic purposes for over a decade and for medical purposes for even longer without any reports of long-term side effects.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, our collagen quality and quantity diminishes. Folds, wrinkles and hollowness appear on our faces. A truly remarkable skin regeneration product can now reverse the loss of skin fullness.

When volume is lost, the face begins to sag. When you restore the underlying foundation, it restores the structure and youthfulness of the face.

Dermal filler injections are made below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual increase in skin thickness over a number of treatment sessions. The product will not reverse the underlying cause of the facial fat loss but will help to improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

Collagen Stimulants

Collagen stimulants can help to rebuild the collagen framework. The injections encourage the body to rebuild its own lost collagen.

Popular areas that can be treated are:

  • Lines around the corner of the mouth
  • Cheek wrinkles
  • Chin creases
  • Temple area
  • Drooping jowls

The number of treatments needed will depend on your particular circumstances.
