Our injectable treatment options include:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Dermal Fillers

IV Vitamin Infusion

Thread Lifts

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

To reduce the visual effects of ageing

Anti Wrinkle injections are commonly used to prevent the onset of static wrinkles caused by expression lines on the face. These injections work to relax and smooth out muscles just under the skin. The procedures are quick and relatively pain free and can have dramatic results.

How does this Treatment work?

Anti-Wrinkle injections use a small amount of a naturally occurring protein based extract, delivered directly into a muscle just under the skin’s surface. This results in a release in tension of the muscle, smoothing out tension and, in turn, wrinkles. These treatments also work to block muscle receptors, helping the muscle relax over time.

Who does this treatment benefit?

Anti-wrinkle injections are perfect for people with both light and static wrinkles on their face and neck areas. The ideal locations to apply these treatments include:

  • Eye area – Crow’s feet
  • Forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Under nose area
  • Lip lines
  • Neck area

What are the effects?

these treatments will assist in relaxing the muscles, allowing the skin to lift and relax over the muscles more smoothly. This results in a refreshed and more youthful appearance.

When will I see results?

Injections take affect in 2 to 3 days, but best results will appear at around the 10 day mark.

At Hair and Skin Science we recommend treatments around every 4 to 5 months.

Dermal Fillers

Boosting hydration and elasticity in the skin

Found naturally in the human body, Dermal fillers use a complex sugar chain formula that can provide subtle improvements to the facial features or facial balance. These solutions also help provide skin hydration by attracting water as well as boosting cellular renewal processes and collagen stimulation. Dermal Fillers offer the ability to shape and add volume to the face and occasionally can help reduce deeper lines in areas where Anti-Wrinkle Injections are not appropriate.

How does this Treatment work?

As apposed to Anti-Wrinkle injections which relax the muscles under the skin, Dermal Fillers work to restore and build shape.

While both injectables are applied to similar areas, Fillers have the ability to restore restore facial contours and asymmetries.

Who does this treatment benefit?

Ideal uses for Dermal Fillers include:

  • For deeper set wrinkles, not appropriate for Anti-wrinkle injections
  • To enhace  facial volume
  • To assist in correcting facial asymmetries
  • Restore fullness to lips

What are the effects?

Once injected, Dermal Fillers absorb soft tissue fluid in the targeted area, expanding within the area to fill, and add correction and volume to the space.

When will I see results?

Results can be seen almost instantly and can last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the injection location.

We recommend Dermal Fillers as a relative pain-free alternative to surgical enhancements. speak to our expert clinicians for a personalised evaluation and recommendations.

IV Vitamin Infusion

Vitamins C, B12 or Glutathione

(Commencing July 2017)

Vitamins and minerals are important, but when they are taken by mouth the amount that can actually be absorbed and used is limited as they move through the intestines and are processed by the liver. The fastest and most effective way for your body to receive nutrients is to deliver them directly to the brain, heart and other vital organs through the bloodstream.

IV therapy is used to treat numerous conditions, disorders, and health challenges in order to optimize health.

How does this Treatment work?

The powerful cocktail of recovery vitamins are delivered straight into your blood stream using the Intravenous Therapy (IV) delivery method. There is no downtime and you are able to resume your normal activities right away.

All procedures are conducted only by our Cosmetic Doctor.

Who does this treatment benefit?

Vitamins are used to boost the immune system. They help the body to recover from inflammations, infections, thrombosis, fatigue and post surgical healing. They can also:

  • Increase strength & endurance
  • Shift the function of metabolism from fat production to muscle development
  • Decrease muscle damage
  • Reduce recovery time

What are the effects?

You may feel a warm feeling throughout your body as you have the intravenous drip. Some people may develop flu-like systems for a few hours after the treatment.

When will I see results?

The effects of one drip session can last for about a week. However, scheduling regular sessions can further optimise results.

Thread Lifts

A lifting and regenrate treatment

Thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps you look younger, fresher and tightens sagging skin. Thread Lifts use clear polypropylene threads that pull the sagging facial skin on the cheeks, eye-brows and neck, giving a smooth, fresh, rejuvenated and younger look.

How does this Treatment work?

Applying the thread lift takes around 30 minutes and is a tailor-made treatment, so it will be adapted to your needs and preferences and can be complemented with other aesthetic treatments.

  1. After a small local anesthetic, the doctor inserts the suture under the skin to a depth of about five millimeters.
  2. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with resorbable cones oriented in opposite directions (bidirectional).
  3. Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off. One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area.

Who does this treatment benefit?

Thread Lifts are recommended for men and women of 30 and over who are trying to combat effectively the signs of ageing and who do not want any heavy and invasive treatment, but are looking for real and natural looking results.

This treatment can be applied to different areas of the face:

  • Contours of the face
  • jaw line
  • cheeks and mid face area
  • eyebrows
  • neck

What are the effects?

After the treatment, a slight oedema or bruising may occur. Sometimes, a slight depression or skin irregularity may appear at the entry points. These inconveniences disappear a few days after treatment.

The doctor will prescribe an antibiotic cream to apply on the entry and exit points of the sutures twice a day (in the morning and in the evening, during 5 days):

  • Apply cold packs immediately after the procedure if required (Cold packs should be wrapped to avoid direct contact with skin and insertion point)

When will I see results?

This technique leaves no scars and can be successfully used for all areas of the face and neck resulting in a fresher and younger look. Recovery time is minimal and patient can quickly go back to their full social life.
