Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections provide an effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, using a protein called Botulinum Toxin of which BOTOX® is a trade name of a product made by Allergan.

Introduction

It is a safe, quick and reliable solution for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime. Static wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when the face is at rest are best to be improved with soft tissue fillers rather than Botulinum Toxin.

There are typically three main areas which are treated with Botulinum Toxin:

Frown lines

Frown lines (Glabella lines) is one of the most common areas to be treated. Frown wrinkles are vertical lines and can signal emotions such as anger, anxiety or fear. They are vertical lines that can be successfully treated with Botulinum Toxin.

Forehead wrinkles

Horizontal lines that appear between the eyebrows and hairline are formed during facial expressions to convey emotions such as surprise or empathy. These lines can easily be targeted with anti-wrinkle injections.

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet or laughter lines as they are most commonly known are in the outer corner of the eyes and are more prominent when laughing or smiling.
We can also use Botulinum Toxin to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the corners of the mouth from pulling down, to reduce gummy smiles and neck bands. They reduce muscle bulk to slim jaw lines and can also help with a ‘pebbly’ appearance of the chin.

At Regent Street Clinic Dubai, we offer a free consultation where we will be able to examine your areas of concern and advise on the best treatment for you. Wrinkle relaxing injections are proven to be safe and effective. You will be provided with detailed consent and medical history forms which you will be asked to read and sign before treatment. Our doctors will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

 

The results of the treatment begin to appear from day 4-14. Botulinum Toxin usually lasts roughly 3-4 months; however, the effects can last up to six months in some people. Repeated treatments progressively weaken the targeted muscles and can lead to more prolonged duration and less frequent treatments.

 

The Doctor will inject small amounts of Botulinum Toxin to the targeted muscles using an ultra-fine needle to ensure very little discomfort.

You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment. It is best to avoid exercise for 48 hours after the treatment, and the area should not be massaged for the first two days. Botulinum Toxin injections cannot be administered to under 18’s and the treatment is not permitted to anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

You are advised to attend for a review 2-3 weeks after your first treatment, follow ups are generally not needed for subsequent treatments.

This procedure involves injecting a low-density soft tissue filler into the area under the eye known as the tear trough, often also described as the under-eye bags, or sunken area under the eyes.

 

The treatment is safe and effective, we use a microcannula technique for tear trough filler to minimise the risks of vessel damage around the eye. This is a blunt tipped instrument which not only reduces pain, but also glides through the tissue layers of the skin to avoid puncturing any vessels in the area. Our soft tissue fillers have built-in local anaesthetic allowing for a quicker and more comfortable treatment for the patient as well as less swelling.

Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is an affordable procedure that uses soft tissue fillers and is an ideal treatment for individuals with a wide variety of aesthetic nose complaints.

These include:

  • A flat bridge – dermal fillers can be used to create a subtle increase in height
  • A slightly crooked or an off-centre nose correction
  • Camouflage a bump or hook on the bridge of the nose
  • To balance the size of the nose in comparison with other facial features
  • To refine an asymmetrical nose
  • By correcting these imperfections with soft tissue fillers, your nose will appear smaller, more symmetrical and attractive.
  • Within 15 minutes, immediate correction will be achieved with minimum to no pain and no recovery or downtime.

Injectable lip enhancement involves the precise placement of soft tissue fillers into parts of the lip. There are two parts of each lip that can be injected – the actual lip BODY and the outer rim, known as the VERMILLION BORDER.

 

Lip Fillers enhance the natural beauty of younger lips as well as restore the plump, sensuous look that is lost with age in both men and women. Our products achieve excellent results and contain a local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort during the procedure.

 

Creating the perfect lips often involves much more than just increasing their size. Care and attention must also be given to the surrounding skin, such as filling the fine lines that appear above and below the lip, lifting the corners of the mouth that can sag with age, or correcting the “nose to mouth” lines that commonly appear to frame the mouth at either end. Our doctors will work out, with you, depending on the look you wish to achieve, which parts of the lip would benefit most from treatment and how much lip filler is likely to be needed to achieve the desired result.

 

The final results are evident at roughly 1 week after all swelling has subsided. Results under the eyes last for up to 12 months.

Soft tissue fillers are a multi-functional treatment that can target a number of areas in the face. As we age, not only does our facial skin progressively lose its elasticity and start to sag but changes in the deeper layers of the skin also contribute to the signs of ageing. The bone and soft tissues degenerate, especially in the mid-face and this leads to flattening of the facial features. Soft tissue fillers are an effective way to reduce deep lines and wrinkles, to fill out hollows and smooth the facial contours. We also use them to add volume to the areas such as the cheeks and lips.

 

By adding volume to the cheeks, the former youthful facial fullness can be restored and enhanced which reduces the signs of ageing.

 

Using a thicker consistency soft tissue filler for cheek augmentation will restore lost facial volume and provide skin structure and elasticity. These smooth injectable fillers are made from a natural complex sugar called Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in human skin. Hyaluronic acid also assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. They are specially formulated to be used deep in the skin to add natural looking volume to the midface and cheek bone areas.
Cheek augmentation with soft tissue fillers gives an immediate, subtle, soft, beautiful freshening up of the face which will lead to long-term rejuvenation and restoration of the treated area. Sharpening the contours of the cheekbones leading to a replacement of the “V” shape of the face, leading to an immediate more youthful appearance.

Chin enhancement is a treatment that has become more popular over the last few years. By adding a high G-prime product we are able to improve the shape of the chin, helping the profile of the face to be balanced and also to make the jaw line look more defined. Chin augmentation helps to restore chin volume that is naturally decreased in most people with age. It helps to restore a more youthful chin, neck, and jawline appearance, and thereby improve the contours and balance of the entire face.

 

This treatment has no downtime and the pain is minimal. We always use a soft tissue filler containing anaesthetic to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. The results from this treatment can last up to 18 months.
