Who's it for?
FOREHEAD LINES are horizontal lines that form through the repetitive use of your facial muscles around your eyebrows. Over time these dynamic wrinkles form permanent lines, known as static wrinkles and Anti-wrinkle Injections may be used to soften them. Our Anti-wrinkle Injections relax the area which can create a smoother appearance and assist in preventing future lines from forming.
FROWN LINES are the vertical lines between your eyes and are also known as your ‘glabella lines’. Repeated muscle movement and contraction leads to permanent static wrinkles.
CROWS FEET are often referred to as 'smile lines' or 'character lines'. These lines appear on the outside corners of the eyes. Our Anti-wrinkle Injections can give you the confidence that comes from a refreshed and rejuvenated look. The area is smoothed and may be prevented from creasing, giving a more youthful appearance.
Our CHEEKY CHEEKS package uses dermal fillers to add or restore volume and structure so you can look and feel your best. It can redefine the cheekbones creating a glamourised look, lift pressure from your nasolabial folds, or replace lost volume, giving you a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
Our LIPS TO LOVE package can add or restore volume to your lips, leaving you with a pout to be envied. It can add definition to your natural lip line or turn up the corners of your mouth to enhance the younger lip, or re-volumise the ageing lip. Our cosmetic injectors will work with you to using the latest technology in dermal fillers, giving you the longest possible lasting results.
Our highly trained and experienced injectors will discuss your desired result, take you through our procedures in detail and advise you of any factors to consider.
LCA performs more cosmetic injection treatments than any other group in Australia. This means specialised treatment from experienced injectors, trained both nationally and internationally, to achieve the aesthetic result that you desire. As every patient is different, we conduct a complimentary consultation to understand your needs and recommend the best treatment package for you.
ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS use a product that is a natural, purified protein. It has been used for over 20 years to treat a variety of medical treatments such as cerebral palsy, facial spasms, and excessive sweating. It causes temporary relaxation in any muscle it is injected into and stops the muscle from contracting, leaving the overlapping skin smooth and unwrinkled. When a muscle is injected it will reduce its function whilst the injection is effective, but this will reverse itself after a period of months, at which time re-treatment is appropriate. It is recommended for use on frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
DERMAL FILLER is a complex sugar chain, which strongly binds with water and is naturally found in human skin. We use next-generation Dermal Fillers consisting of non-animal stabilised Hyaluronic Acid gel acid (NASHA). It creates and restores volume in the upper layer of the skin to enhance and contour. It’s used for the treatment of facial folds, lines, wrinkles, depressed scars and to enlarge and reshape the lips. Dermal Filler is best used on lips, tear troughs and cheeks but other areas can be discussed with your cosmetic injector.
CHEEKY CHEEKS can allow you to enjoy your results almost instantly. For most, 2mL of Dermal Filler provides the desired look, however should you require additional product you can purchase extra at time of treatment.
LIPS TO LOVE uses a both thick and thin Dermal Fillers combination to address volume loss, skin quality and ultimately obtain the look you desire. This package allows for up to 1mL of Dermal Filler. Should you require additional product you can purchase extra at the time of treatment.
ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS start to work 2 to 3 days after the injection and reaches its full effect within 7 to 14 days. The effect can typically last for up to 3 to 4 months depending on the individual. Repeated injections will have a cumulative effect. The results will wear off progressively and you will need to repeat the injections up to 3 times a year to maintain results.
DERMAL FILLERS can be effective immediately. The average time for the first ‘top up treatment’ is 3 months with a range of 1 to 6 months. Once the area is filled to an optimal level, the effect can last 6 to 18 months depending on the area and product used.
CHEEKY CHEEKS can last from 12 to 18 months, depending on the product and the individual client.
LIPS TO LOVE can last anywhere from 3 to 12 months, depending on the product used and the individual client. The average time for the first ‘top up treatment’ for lips is 3 months with a range of 1 to 6 months. Once the area is filled to an optimal level, the effect can last up to 6 to 12 months depending on the area. Clients are advised to attend a complimentary 15 minute consultation with an injector for an individual assessment.
To maintain optimal treatment standards, you must attend a follow up appointment at 2 weeks post treatment. This allows time for the product to settle and develop naturally, and gives you the opportunity to discuss your results and progress with your cosmetic injector.
Immediately after DERMAL FILLERS you may look swollen or puffy, particularly if the lip area has been treated. This generally lasts for about 48 hours and is mild. For the first 2 weeks there may be tenderness, bruising and swelling at the site of treatment. This lessens during the first week as the product settles. Your true result will generally be visible by the second week. Your cosmetic injector will review your treatment 2 weeks post injections and can address any questions, concerns, or discuss adding additional volume should you wish to do so.
Avoid vigorous physical activity or alcohol for 24 hours, as this increases the risk of bruising. Aspirin (Consult your physician) and Vitamin E should not be taken for one week before the treatment. You should be able to return to work after the treatment, but this will depend on your individual preference. Schedule your treatment at least two to four weeks prior to an important event (e.g. wedding) to allow any possible bruising or swelling to subside completely. You can apply light water-based make-up or mineral make-up following treatment where necessary. Do not have facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, Glycolic or AHA/BHA peels, Liquid Nitrogen (dry ice), or laser treatments for 10 to 14 days after any dermal filler treatment. Laser resurfacing is best done after the product has completely disappeared from the body.
Immediately after ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS you may lightly apply an ice pack if you have any bruising at the injection site. You may gently cleanse the area but do not use a scrub or apply any pressure for the first 48 hours. Feel free to frown, laugh or raise your eyebrows and forehead as it helps bind the product to the muscles faster. Avoid activities where you are likely to perspire heavily for the first 2 days and do not lie face down. One week before treatment avoid Vitamin E, Aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs to minimise any bruising. Before ceasing any medication, always consult your general practitioner.
Your cosmetic injector will provide you with specific pre and post treatment instructions in your consultation.
