Wrinkle and Volume Loss Treatments

Dermal Fillers

We provide dermal fillers to plump your lips, as well as add volume to areas that are wrinkled or shallow

Dermal fillers are injections used to treat wrinkles, furrows or hollows to give the face a fuller, more youthful appearance.

In younger faces the skin is soft and plump due to collagen and hyaluronic acid (a soft gel-like substance) in the dermis. With ageing, and exposure to sunlight or pollutants, the skin’s natural stores of collagen and hyaluronic acid are degraded and destroyed, causing “shrinkage” of the facial tissues that results in furrows and lines, and lips which are less full and more wrinkled.

Dermal fillers can be used for lip enhancement and for lines, groves and troughs due to loss of volume in other areas of the face.

Dermal fillers can be injected into the lips and the surrounding areas in order to enhance the size, volume and projection of the lips. The lips are prone to volume loss over time, and with the use of dermal fillers we can make the lips appear more youthful. For those who wish to enhance the appearance of the lips, or make them appear more voluminous, our team of doctors can help.

Filler injections restore some of the lost volume, helping to fill in facial lines, troughs and hollows. Some other concerns dermal fillers can correct include:

  • Cheek depressions
  • Tear troughs
  • Facial or acne scar depressions

At Skin Doctor SA our clinical staff will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment bearing in mind efficacy and safety and together decide on the most appropriate treatment for your situation.

Anti-wrinkle Injections 

Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make the skin appear tauter and more rejuvenated.

Anti-wrinkle or wrinkle-reduction injections utilise an agent which weakens muscles temporarily. These agents are now generally accepted as a very successful treatment for facial lines, furrows and wrinkles resulting from many years of facial muscle activity. These lines are, in medical parlance, referred to as ‘dynamic’ lines and are commonly known by terms such as Forehead and Frown lines, and Crow’s feet.

The staff at Skin Doctor SA carefully place injections to weaken the muscles that create dynamic lines in a manner which is medically safe and does not leave the face looking frozen or expressionless. The effects of the injections are temporary (up to approximately 3 months) depending on, for example, the strength of the muscle. During the time the agent is active, however, people often adapt to using other muscles for facial expression. Further treatments will most likely need to be repeated every 3 to 6 months to maintain the effect, although smaller doses may be required with successive treatments.
