Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections Melbourne VIC

Anti-wrinkle injections can target the eyes, nose, mouth and forehead.

It is not always necessary to undergo a surgical procedure to improve your facial appearance.  Mr David Morgan offers procedures which can improve the appearance of your face without the risks of scarring or having a general anaesthetic.

Fine wrinkles that result from excessive and repeated muscle action around our eyes, nose mouth and foreheads can give a tired, angry, or aged look that can be out of keeping with how our patients feel.  Anti-wrinkle injections that are skilfully targeted at these areas can stop the muscle activity responsible for the wrinkles and can give you a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.  This procedure requires no anaesthetic and can be performed in our practice in less than twenty minutes.  The effects of the injection will become apparent over the next 7-10 days and will usually last from 3-6 months.  Injections can be repeated as necessary and will often allow the skin to recover over time so that these fine wrinkles become less noticeable.

Deeper wrinkles can form in the face as a result of ageing and are particularly common between the eyes, around the mouth and chin, and at the junction of the cheek and upper lip.  Dermal fillers are used in these areas to reduce the depth and visibility of the lines and to improve the appearance of the surrounding skin.  These fillers are made of a non-animal non-allergenic substance that is identical to a naturally occurring substance in our skin and is provided in small syringes for ease of use.  These injections are usually performed under some form of local anaesthesia and may require early arrival for your appointment to allow the anaesthesia time to work.  The effect of these injections can be immediately apparent and can last for 9-12 months.

These dermal fillers can also be used to plump up thin or ageing lips and to provide more definition to the lip edge.  Lip enhancement is usually performed under local anaesthesia and will take approximately 30 minutes.  The effects are immediately apparent and will last for up to 12 months.

Skin care

Good skin care is an important part of maintaining your skin’s health and can maximise the effects of any facial rejuvenation procedure.  It can help reduce the effects of ageing on the skin, protect against sun damage, and repair the effects of excessive sun damage. Mr Morgan has a strong relationship with local skin therapists and can help coordinate an overall treatment plan.
