The search for smooth skin is over! Cosmetic injections provide ways and means to get back to or achieve that perfect skin you have been dreaming of. Eradicating fine lines and wrinkles and increasing volume allows you the opportunity to embrace smooth, fresh and rejuvenated skin.

If you’re new to the world of cosmetic injections, you may find the idea daunting and somewhat intimidating. But what is the experience like? The process is safe and results-driven, delivered by trained specialists who are experts in their field. Here’s what you need to know about cosmetic injections.

What are cosmetic injections?

Approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, cosmetic injections involve a medical procedure wherein a substance is injected underneath the skin. This substance reduces the appearance of wrinkles, dehydration, scarring, or plumps areas of your skin to make it appear fuller.  

This procedure must be done accurately and in a professional setting to avoid damage. You will be asked to provide a complete history of your skin health. Checks are done to ensure that this procedure is safe and can be undertaken confidently. A Cosmetic Injector will carry out a professional consultation.

You are not alone in your pursuit of better skin health and appearance. Cosmetic injectables are fast becoming the norm when it comes to advanced skincare and beauty treatments. You’ll find that cosmetic injections in Melbourne and all over Australia are a common, safe and medically approved procedure that will have you feeling confident in your own skin and looking your best in no time.

What’s the process like?

Small amounts of serum are injected into specific facial muscles, which causes them to weaken and smooth out wrinkles and facial creasing. This process chiefly targets frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.

Certain side effects can occur, as with any health procedure. However, this is only the case for a small percentage of the population and not something to be overly concerned about. If this is the case, we recommend discussing the results with your skincare specialist and seek medical treatment should the side effects be ongoing.

Your skin’s recovery time will take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. During this time, you can expect to see some swelling and potentially redness or bruising. Rest assured that this is common and your skin’s natural response to the fluid injections.

Do cosmetic injectables hurt?

Are you concerned as to whether cosmetic injectables hurt? It’s a misnomer often associated with a fear of needles that leads many patients to be concerned. Rest assured that the needles used for the procedure are very fine and very little. Everyone has different tolerances to pain, so please be honest with your skincare specialist and voice any concerns that you may have during your initial consultation.

How many visits do I need to see results?

Typically you will see results lasting between 3 to 4 months, so there is no need for immediate follow up. Depending on the type of cosmetic injection and your reaction to the procedure, you may have to visit your skincare specialist annually. A visit will enable a specialist to check your skin to see that results are maintained, but the process is different for everyone.
