Anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections can be used to address a number of skin concerns related to ageing. They can address lines and wrinkles and restore volume and structure to the face. They are some of the most widely used cosmetic treatments in the world and have been used for over 20 years in this area. Medical uses for anti-wrinkle injections include migraine and excessive sweating treatment.
Please avoid consuming alcohol and taking medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Gingko Biloba, or Ginseng in the few days prior to your appointment as this will help to minimise bruising. To ensure high safety standards, a thorough medical and medication history will be completed prior to your treatment.
Anti-wrinkle injections are well tolerated and do not require any anaesthetic, most people simply feel a slight sting with each injection. Dr Tranter uses a topical anaesthetic cream prior to dermal filler injections and all the dermal fillers used for your treatment have an anaesthetic blended into the filler itself, to provide you with a comfortable experience.
There can be some mild bruising and swelling after anti-wrinkle and filler injections , but these effects are not common and resolve within 24-72 hours.
Immediately post-procedure you can see the plumping and smoothing effect of dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections take 2 weeks to reach their maximal effect.
You are able return to normal activity immediately after the procedure. Dr Tranter advises you to avoid intense exercise for the remainder of the day, remain upright for the following 4-6 hours, and not to massage the injected area or use active cosmeceuticals that evening.
Please contact the studio directly if you have any concerns.
The effects of dermal fillers usually last anywhere between 12-18 months, while anti-wrinkle injections last between 3-4 months. The longevity of the product used is affected by your lifestyle and activity, and Dr Tranter will discuss this with you prior to your treatment.
Dr Tranter values your time and her own. If you can't make your appointment we ask that you please giver her 24 hours notice.
