Injections, fillers and threads are administered by our plastic surgeon
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that temporarily improves the appearance of facial wrinkles by blocking the chemicals that cause the facial muscles to contract. It may be injected into the area between the brows and the forehead to smooth frown and “worry” lines. The areas to be treated may be numbed with a cold pack prior to injection. Discomfort is minimal and brief. The procedure takes approximately ten to twenty minutes. It is done in the clinic with no down time for the patient. Botox® is performed at Durban Cosmetic Laser Centre every 3 months. Call our office for the next scheduled Botox Day.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body providing fullness to the skin. Over time facial wrinkles and folds appear as the skin loses hyaluronic acid. Soft tissue fillers are injected directly into the skin using a small needle to minimise discomfort. Results are almost immediate with fullness and volume being restored. Radiesse® is a natural collagen stimulant used for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It instantly restores facial volume to smooth out the signs of ageing and works with your body by stimulating your own natural collagen for long lasting results. Results may last six to twelve months. Injection of facial fillers is done in the clinic with no downtime for the patient. Contact our office for a free consultation or to set up an appointment for fillers.
Restylane-L, Perlane-L, Juvéderm XC and Prevelle are all soft tissue fillers that have recently been made available with lidocaine so the injection is much more comfortable. All of these soft tissue fillers can be used to safely enhance the size and shape of the lips for a youthful, attractive contour.
Restylane-L, Perlane-L, Juvéderm XC, Prevelle and Radiesse can be used to increase volume and fullness in the skin, reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, folds and scars. These popular treatments are typically performed in less than an hour, and most patients return to work and normal activities the very same day. The results of soft tissue fillers are immediate and can last from six to twelve months before follow-up treatments are required to maintain improvement.
