Rejuvenating Your Face with Wrinkle Treatments in Sydney
As you reach your middle years, aging skin may bring about changes that you do not wish to see. You may develop wrinkles, crow’s feet around your eyes and jowls, making you appear older than you feel. These changes may make you feel that your face is no longer a vision of youth and beauty. Often, women search for a skin care option that reverses this aging process. There are many creams and serums that tout drastic changes, but when you use them, you find out that the wrinkles and lines still remain. Rather than continue to be self-conscious about your facial appearance, Dr. Darrell Perkins offers a variety of effective non-invasive wrinkle treatments for women of all ages in Sydney.
What causes wrinkles and fine lines?
Skin cells produce elastin and collagen. They allow your skin cells to remain elastic and heal faster. Aging skin causes a decrease in collagen and elastin. With less collagen and elastin, your skin cannot heal as quickly and is more susceptible to drying out and wrinkling.
Wrinkles also appear when the facial muscles weaken due to overuse. The muscles in the face are tensed for long periods of time. This can weaken the muscles making wrinkles and lines more apparent. Common areas where facial muscles weaken are around the forehead, eyes and lips. Dr. Perkins offers dermal fillers and wrinkle injections for women who seek to improve wrinkles and fine lines.
How do wrinkle injections work?
When a wrinkle injection is administered, it will release a chemical that makes the muscles of the face relax. Specific muscles are targeted where the wrinkles are most prominent, and the product is injected underneath the skin and into the muscle. A topical numbing agent can be applied to minimise discomfort.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers are used to rejuvenate by filling in lines and wrinkles. The dermal fillers will plump the face and its features to give you a more youthful appearance. Your face will be analyzed to determine the ideal areas for you to have fillers injected. Like wrinkle injections, a numbing agent can be applied first to minimise discomfort and then filler injected in the specific areas where you have developed lines and wrinkles.
What is the recovery process like?
These treatments are minimally invasive and do not require long periods of recovery. Dr. Perkins recommends that you refrain from exercising and for a day or so after the procedure.
Future injections may be scheduled to occur months after your initial treatment to ensure that your results last.
