Are you sick of looking tired and/or cranky? Are you told you look much older than your age? Deep wrinkles and skin folds can create an angry, upset or sad appearance. These negative expressions can lead to disadvantages and discrimination both socially and in the work place. Relaxing facial muscles with cosmetic medicine to smooth negative expressions, results in a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

The appearance of wrinkles due to collagen loss is of concern of most men and women as they age. Wrinkles are caused by genetic factors (intrinsic ageing) as well as environmental factors such as UV (sun) light exposure (extrinsic ageing). Research has shown that most premature ageing is caused by UV light exposure. However, repetitive facial expressions, sleeping, gravity, alcohol and smoking also contribute to the formation of wrinkles. This can begin in our mid 20’s.

One treatment option to reduce and prevent wrinkles is injectable botulinum toxin, commonly known as botox. Dr Teo uses a new form called botulinum toxin type A commonly known as Xeomin because of the many benefits over other botulinum solutions. Studies have shown that this new form of botox starts to work significantly earlier than the older types of botox and also has a higher response rate and patient satisfaction than older forms of botox. Botulinum toxin type A is only available on prescription and must be administered by a trained healthcare professional. Unlike in some other clinics, the injections are not “watered down”, so they last much longer.

Most people only report mild discomfort during administration of antiwrinkle injections which don’t take long to administer. You make take mild analgesia such as paracetamol one hour prior to having the injections.
Only one treatment is required to obtain results. However, the effect will wear off over time and periodic maintenance treatments will be required.
Xeomin acts on the nerve endings in muscle tissue to reduce the ability of the muscle to contract. This improves the look of frown lines on the forehead and crows feet near the eyes.
The injections take about 15 minutes.
Yes, minor through to deep wrinkles can be treated.
Most people see results within a few days. The wrinkle injections that are used by Dr Teo start to work significantly quicker than other forms of wrinkle injections.
Individual results may vary, however in general they last about 3 to 4 months when first starting the injections. With time, most people do not need them as often, and may stretch the treatments out further.
This depends on the size of the area to be treated. On average, between eyebrows $238, crows feet $238 and full upper face-this includes frown lines between eyebrows, lines on forehead and crows feet $680. However, a consultation is required to give you a firm price.
All medicines have risks and benefits. Dr Teo will discuss the risks of you using the medicine against the benefits you expect it will have for you.

Dermal fillers add volume to areas of the face where volume has been lost due to collagen loss as a result of the ageing process. The most common method is to use a gel filler containing hyalouronic acid such as Juvederm. This acid is a natural sugar substance which draws in and retains moisture where it has been injected. This results in a smoother skin surface making wrinkles less visible.

Juvederm is a long acting filler that may be used to treat areas on the face where collagen is lost, specifically the cheeks, around the nose, lips and around the mouth.

Benefits of using Juvederm

  • It works very fast. smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles within a few hours.
  • Juvederm is a gel preventing unwanted bumps and rippling lasting up to a year.
  • It is minimally invasive and nonsurgical.
  • There is no down time-clients may go straight back to work or daily activities.
  • Because Juvederm is made up of hyalouronic acid, which naturally occurs in our bodies, it is biodegradeable, breaking down over time.
