What are injectables?
Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are a gel-based treatment. They are injected into your skin and are designed to create volume and reduce wrinkles. The most well-known fillers are dermal lip fillers.
Neurotoxins: Neurotoxin injections relax the muscles of your face. They are made from purified botulinum toxin. It’s injected in extremely small concentrations. By paralysing the muscles of your face, they can’t contract any more, and that’s why your wrinkles are less visible.
Improving the volume of your lips and face?
Collagen provides skin structure (1)
Hyaluronic acid provides skin volume (2)
"Dermal fillers are gel-based and injected just below the surface of your skin to fill lines and wrinkles from the inside out. This results in smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Fillers are also frequently used to augment and recontour the lower, upper and middle cheeks to create a more youthful look."
Prevent wrinkles from worsening?
"Some of us only see our first wrinkles when we are in our forties. Others start noticing small lines earlier. When we inject very small concentrations of botulinum in your facial muscles, the overlying skin softens and reduces your wrinkles making them less visible. It is a perfect treatment to prevent wrinkles from deepening."
How often do you need injectables?
Dermal fillers frequency
"When your fillers are used to treat lines and wrinkles, on average, they can last anywhere from three to nine months. Lip fillers or lip injections need quicker top-ups; the results can last anywhere from three to six months."
Anti-wrinkle injections frequency
"Once we relax the muscles they contract less, and the fine lines and wrinkles will soften. To see the full effect you will need to wait seven to fourteen days. After three to four months the muscles will slowly regain their function. So repeat treatment is recommended to maintain your desired results."
Are injectables safe?
"Pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding should postpone their treatment. When you have recently had a sinus infection, I would recommend holding off as well. Same for when your skin is inflamed; it is better to wait until the problem has resolved. People with bleeding disorders shouldn’t undergo treatment at all."
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Dr Jeremy Rawlins for injectables?
Why go to a plastic surgeon for cosmetic injectables?
Injectables are prescription-only and as the word implies are injected under your skin. Though considered being very safe, if used incorrectly they could damage your skin, and in rare cases cause blindness or serious ill health. That’s why the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia has created a checklist so that you can ask the right questions and do your own research.
"As a registered plastic surgeon and medical professional, I comply with all the TGA guidelines. Before we start treatment, we will discuss your medical history during a consultation to make sure you are not allergic or don’t have a bleeding disorder. At my practice, I only use registered products that are safe and comply with the TGA."
"So you might wonder, why go to a plastic surgeon for injectables? In case of a complication (such as an infection, bruising, formation of small lumps), you are in the right hands."
