The love of your life has finally proposed, and now there’s a wedding to plan! Once you’ve set the date there are a lot of details to get sorted out. From the venue and caterers, to invitations, makeup artists and photographers. While there are a lot of compromises you have to make, you’re not going compromise on how fresh and healthy your face looks. But recently you’ve noticed fine lines and deep wrinkles on your face, and you’d like to do something about them. You’re not alone wanting to look and feel the best version of yourself on your wedding day.
Dr Somaiye Kadivar (BMBS, Cosmetic Doctor) used anti-wrinkle treatment and dermal fillers for 40-year-old Alyssa before her wedding. This bride-to-be had noticed that her mid cheek area, chin and eye areas didn’t look like they used to. While she wanted to look refreshed and glowing on her wedding day, she didn’t want to look frozen or weird.
Since 2005 led by Dr Gavin Chan, our highly trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses have helped thousands of people prepare for their wedding day. One of our main goals is to help patients look their best while still looking like themselves.
How cosmetic injections can treat your wrinkles and expression lines
Have you noticed that your expression lines are getting deeper or your laughter lines are there even when you’re not smiling or laughing? On your wedding day frown lines or deep crow’s feet may make you look and feel older than you are.
Expression lines deep wrinkles and a loss of facial volume are part of the natural ageing process. The prolonged effect of gravity combines with less support from collagen fibres, elastin fibres, and hyaluronic acid. This results in your skin losing its elasticity, leading to fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your face.
Our anti-wrinkle injections contain a protein that triggers the injected facial muscle to relax and smooth out the wrinkles in the treatment area. These cosmetic injections can also:
- Treat your forehead lines,
- Improve your brow shape,
- Reduce your down-turning mouth,
- Reduce your chin dimpling, and
- Narrow a wide face.
Since 2005, led by Dr Gavin Chan, our highly trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses have focused on the best injection techniques to smooth out upper, middle and lower face wrinkles and fine lines. We believe that cosmetic injections should moderate the severity or intensity of wrinkles and lines, but should never make your face ‘frozen’. Having some fine lines around your eyes is natural and gives you the capacity to laugh, smile and express yourself.
We carefully consider the overall balance of your face and the injection dosage amount. If the laughter lines around your eyes have an inappropriate dose of wrinkle injection it can result in compensatory muscle contractions under your eyes, which leads to more wrinkles forming. Over-treating forehead wrinkles with wrinkle injections can lead to your brow appearing heavy and lower than you would like. We believe that wrinkle treatments need to be aesthetically pleasing and subtle. Look at our before and after anti-wrinkle pictures here
How dermal fillers can treat your wrinkles and expression lines
The 40-year old bride-to-be Alyssa was also concerned about her facial volume loss One of the first signs of ageing is a loss of facial volume in the eyes, cheeks, brows and lips. This facial volume can be replaced with cosmetic fillers.
A sagging lower face and jowls can make you look unhappy and sad, even though you feel happy. During the natural ageing process, jowls can develop and create a heavy look in the lower jaw area. This happens as a result of a loss of elasticity in the skin, loose skin formation and a loss of volume in the lower face. The effect of this can appear from the age of 40, however in some people it occurs earlier.
We use cosmetic fillers to reduce and slow down visible signs of ageing that include:
- Thin lips
- Hollow cheeks
- A receding, shorter chin
- Lines and wrinkles
- Deep skin hollows and folds
- Drooping, puffy and tired eyes
- A downward smile, or
- Drawing down and thinning of your face.
Dermal fillers are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in the skin, hyaluronic acid. Our highly trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses can use filler treatment in your cheeks, eye hollows, chin, nose, nasolabial folds and the corners of your mouth. The hollows that sit between your lower eyelid and cheeks (tear troughs) can also be treated with dermal fillers. Look at our before and after dermal filler treatment pictures here
