In the past decade, anti-wrinkle injections have become increasingly popular to treat and prevent wrinkles and expression lines. Our experienced cosmetic doctors administer a muscle relaxant to smooth lines caused by dynamic muscle activity, such as frowning and smiling. Anti-wrinkle injections may be used to treat:

  • Frown lines
  • Crows’ feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Lip lines
  • Lines on the nose
  • Lines caused by movement on the chin
  • Muscular bands in the neck and sagging jaw line (Nefertiti Lift)
  • Hyperactive masseter (chewing) muscles
  • Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Migraine

Recommended treatments: Depends on what you’re trying to achieve. Your doctor can provide advice about where to administer anti-wrinkle injections for optimal results. It may take two weeks to see the full effect of the treatment.

Dermal Fillers

For clients hoping to achieve a more youthful, refreshed look, we can inject dermal fillers under the skin to smooth out and plump superficial and deeper lines. Comprised of hyaluronic acids, dermal fillers can be used to shape, re-volumise and enhance various areas of the face and lips. You may experience temporary swelling and bruising, which subsides within a few days.

Recommended treatments: Fillers last six to 18 months, depending on the site injected and the type of filler used. The longevity of fillers in some areas can be improved by combining filler treatments with anti-wrinkle injections.

Skinboosters

We offer injectable hydration and rejuvenation treatments using a new form of hyaluronic acid, combined with cosmeceuticals. Our skinbooster treatments can be administered to the neck and décolletage, the delicate eye area, and even the backs of hands, which often show signs of ageing and sun damage. Refresh your look with one of our skinbooster treatments today!

Recommended treatments: We usually recommend a series of treatments, spaced four weeks apart.

Non-surgical Chin Reductions (Belkyra/ Kybella Injections)

Southern Cosmetics is one of the first clinics in Australia to offer this revolutionary new treatment for “double chins”. Belkyra/ Kybella is comprised of a substance called Deoxycholic Acid, which is found in the body in bile acids and breaks down the fat in our diet. Belkyra/ Kybella is administered by a series of small injections into the area below the chin. Once injected, it destroys the fat cells and they never return! A small grid is placed on the area to determine the number of injections needed. Ice is applied and then the injections are performed.

Most men and women can be treated with impressive results. If you have a pocket of fat under your chin which can be “pinched” between the fingers, it can usually be treated. Results vary depending on the size of your submental fat (double chin) and how much loose skin is present. After the treatment, there is some swelling which can last for a few days. Some patients also experience transient numbness and bruising in the treated area.

Recommended treatments: Two to three treatments, with results visible within six to eight weeks.
