Anti-wrinkle injections and fillers are the non-surgical solution designed to create a more youthful appearance. Modern and progressive methods used with anti-wrinkle injections and fillers enable patients to retain all their expressiveness along with a natural appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat dynamic lines in the upper face, including horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet and vertical glabella lines between the eyebrows. They work by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for creating creases in the skin. In addition to their benefits as an anti-ageing treatment, these injections are also utilised to reshape and recontour the face. They are particularly popular among Asian patients for their ability to reduce the bulk of the masseter muscles to thin the face and create a narrower, more feminine jawline.
Dermal fillers can slow apparent ageing by improving facial contour. After gaining an understanding of the areas you wish to enhance, your cosmetic practitioner will inject the filler into targeted areas. Fillers are used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, diminish scarring, increase lip size and more. For Asian patients, popular applications of dermal fillers also include reshaping the chin and jawline for a more oval face shape, increasing projection in the mid-face, filling hollow temples, volumising the forehead and building the nasal bridge (a non-surgical or ‘liquid’ rhinoplasty).
At AF Aesthetics, we specialise in a comprehensive range of anti-wrinkle injections and Hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in the skin and connective tissues. Their main function is to keep the skin hydrated and lubricated. HA fillers are gel-like substance that is injected to the skin for a more natural lift and vibrant skin. They are also used to correct fine lines and wrinkles. HA fillers attract water that gives skin hydration from within. As we age, our skin loses moisture that causes the skin to sag and wrinkles to appear.
Products and delivery methods have evolved, with patient outcomes reflecting the positive advances made. The injection is done by our fully qualified & trained medical & nursing professionals in our clinic to ensure the safety of our patients. This non-invasive procedure is a very quick procedure with minimal recovery time. The effects of HA injections typically last for 6 to 12 months depending on specific product types, anatomical regions of the treatment area as well as the structure of the skin and its response to the treatment.
