Why do I have wrinkles?
Wrinkles emerge because the major structural protein of the skin (collagen), volume generating hyaluronic acid and elastin decrease as we get older. When we age, our skin cells divide at a slower rate and the inner skin deteriorates, moisture retention diminishes, oil-secreting glands collapse and skin becomes dry and scaly. The best way to prevent wrinkles is to avoid prolonged periods of sun exposure, moisturise regularly and have a healthy lifestyle through high fibre diet and exercise.

What are Cosmetic Dermal Fillers?
Cosmetic Dermal Fillers are a temporary filler which lasts up to 6 – 24 months depending on which product you use, and is a suitable non-invasive replacement for cosmetic surgery. The filler may be composed of synthetic or natural gels formed by a variety of polymers and extracts.The compound naturally occurs in the skin, and assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. It also combines with the skin matrix to provide skin structure and elasticity to your face, neck and decolletage, and produces the viscoelastic network for normal fibers to bind together. Since their discovery, Cosmetic Dermal Fillers have emerged as the leading dermal filling agent for soft tissue augmentation, owing to their superior cosmetic results.
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that hydrates and adds volume to your skin. Now used in aesthetic treatments, hyaluronic acid has also been successfully used as a treatment in aiding movement in arthritic joints, eye surgeries and other wound repair, for more than 20 years.

Will my skin benefit from Cosmetic Dermal Filler treatments?
Cosmetic Dermal Filler treatments are generally applied to the face, but can also be very affective at reviving skin on your décolletage, shoulders, neck, arms and chest. Dermal filler treatments are extremely safe and will lift and plump your facial features to give you better definition, firmness and a more youthful appearance. Your skin will glow with inner health, and your friends and family will comment on how young you look instantly.
How long will the procedure take?
Usually a treatment will take between 10 to 30 minutes, with no down time. Treated areas may appear a little red and swollen immediately after treatment for up to 24 hours, however, there is little fuss and preparation required for a Cosmetic Dermal Filler treatment, and many clients return to work soon after treatment.
What can I expect to happen during a treatment?
At Results Laser Clinics, our Cosmetic Medical Staff are highly qualified and experienced, who specialise in injectable rejuvenation. After an initial assessment and discussion, local anaesthetic is introduced to the strategic nerve blocks to minimise discomfort during the procedure. Once treated, the cosmetic medical therapist will vigorously massage the area to ensure even distribution of the gel. The treatment usually takes 10 to 30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
Will the treatment be painful?
Treatments are suitable for all skin types and skin colours, and the procedure feels gentle and rejuvenating. There is no clinical pain in a Cosmetic Dermal Filler treatment, with most people describing the sensation as a mild discomfort. A small amount of anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin prior to treatment for a more comfortable treatment procedure.
Are there any after effects I need to be aware of?
Immediately after your Cosmetic Dermal Filler treatment you may experience some redness and swelling to the treated areas from the anaesthetic and reaction to the injection. This will subside quickly and will usually disappear completely in less than 7 days.
When will I see the results of the treatment?
Results are often immediate. Your skin will feel smooth and pure, and will appear more youthful and toned. The following day, you will notice a significant difference when applying your makeup, and your skin will forever be wanting more!
