We all love to look contoured and youthful. But there are new products now available with anti-ageing injectables which centre on the stimulation of collagen production as well as traditional contouring and volume enhancements.
As we age and move into our 40s, our natural production collagen and elastin in the skin begins to diminish. Our skin becomes dryer and the texture becomes thinner, and our face and hands begin to lose their volume. In the same way, the once-plentiful amounts of our natural hyaluronic acid that supports the skin’s volume decreases, and lines and wrinkles begin to develop. By plumping, contouring and smoothing the wrinkles and folds through several but small injectable applications, you will immediately see its rejuvenation effects.
Collagen Producing Fillers:
We especially love the collagen-producing fillers with a calcium hydroxyapatite-base composition because of its long-term benefits. Not only is it different from the traditional hyaluronic acid-based filler which focuses on contouring and volume, but this powerhouse filler is also applied at a deeper level. So over time, the product not only stimulates your own cell turnover but also leaves your skin looking smoother, plumper and firmer.
In the same way, the luxe filler also corrects fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and from the corner of your mouth to your cheeks and nose.
How it works:
The gel is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Over time, the substance is absorbed, and the body begins to metabolise the CaHA microspheres —a process that triggers the natural production of collagen.
Additionally, the luxe filler corrects fine lines and moderate to severe wrinkles around the eyes and from the corner of your mouth to your cheeks and nose. The product can be used to correct any loss of volume in the hands and lips.
What if I have any skin allergies?
If you suffer from any allergies, have a history of severe skin or blood disorders, are on medication or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, the treatment will be unsuitable. It is essential that you discuss any skin issues during your consultation with Dr Chang.
Will I experience pain with the treatment?
The product is FDA approved, which means that Dr Chang can apply an anesthetic to significantly reduce any pain you may experience with the application of injections.
Will I experience any side-effects following the treatment?
The most common side-effects include mild bruising, redness, and may last from two to seven days.*
How long does the product last?
Along with providing a more luminous and youthful look, the treatment lasts for approximately 12-18 months [while the traditional filler lasts between six to nine months].
Treatments start at $850.00.
Also included in our Year of Beautiful Skin package is a complimentary Red Light Therapy treatment and 10% off a Medik8 product.
