How do wrinkles form?

The middle layer (Dermis) of our skin is the support structure. It contains collagen, elastin and other biological substances including hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid keeps our skin plump and hydrated. As we age, these substances decrease. The elastin fibres become loose. They then form as wrinkles, fine lines and folds.

What are muscle relaxants and how do they work?

Muscle relaxants are a purified protein administered in a few tiny injections to relax wrinkle causing muscles. They have a proven safety record of almost 20 years. Muscle relaxants require no recovery time so you can head straight back to work and no one will know.

What are dermal fillers and are they safe?

Yes, dermal fillers are perfectly safe. They are made from the body’s own material, hyaluronic acid. Using an ultra fine needle, tiny amounts of gel are injected into the middle layer of the skin to add volume which smooths out wrinkles and folds.

Dermal filler injections may cause some minor redness and swelling however it can easily be disguised with make-up.

Who can perform cosmetic injection?

In Australia, strictly only medical doctors or registered nurses are able to perform cosmetic injections. Treatment of cosmetic injectables requires both a skilled hand and a thorough understanding of facial anatomy. Both Dr Lerm and Lisa are committed to providing excellent cosmetic results in a minimally invasive way and both are strong advocates against over-treatment.

What if clients don’t want anyone to know?

Privacy and confidentiality are of prime importance. Adequate consultation and treatment time is allocated to prevent overlapping of clients.

Is there anything that clients can do to optimise the results of cosmetic injections?

Following dermal filler injections, it is essential that the client maintains their hydration. Drinking lots of water compliments the treatment by binding to the hyaluronic acid and plumping out the lines. It will also increase the longevity of the product. Clients should also be meticulous with their skin care regime.
