What is the difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections use 2 different products. The protein in anti-wrinkle injections relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. It is most frequently injected around the forehead, frown and crow’s feet. The injections can also be used to treat other areas of the face.

Dermal fillers are an injectable gel used to restore or add volume to specific areas of the face, most commonly the lips and cheeks, but can be injected across all areas of the face.

How long do the results last?

The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually last a minimum of approximately 3 to 4 months. The effects from dermal fillers can be visible anywhere from 9 to 24 months.

What are fat dissolving injections? Is it the same as liposuction?

Fat dissolving injections are administered around the neck to permanently remove fat underneath the chin. The removal of fat from this area can greatly contour your facial profile and provide a customised result.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure and as such requires a surgical team and a hospital admission. In comparison, the fat dissolving injections are administered in the consult room with a little swelling and no other recovery time is needed.

Can I return to work after treatment?

Yes, you can return to normal daily activities straight after treatment.
