One of the newest multi-use treatments on the market, Botox Injections for sweating are a wonderful way to deal with unsightly armpits and chill clamy hands. Botox injections for migraines are an effective treatment for recurring headaches and pain.

injections of botulinum toxin are the most popular and widespread of all the cosmetic medicine interventions.
The Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery estimated that 1.5 million botulinum toxin injections or 250,000 wrinkle reduction procedures were administered in Australia in 2009. These figures are 30% higher than those reported for 2008. With the need for further and ongoing treatment in those who have previously received injections and the promise of new customers, these numbers are expected to double over the next five years. There are two formulations of botulinum toxin available for injection in Australia: • BOTOX® • DYSPORT® Both are purified from the toxic bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium has a claim to fame as the cause of the rare but serious condition known as botulism. In this condition, ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium or the toxins it produces, leads to progressive paralysis.

This usually starts with the muscles of the face and eyes and then spreads progressively over the body. It affects the face and eyes first because these are among the most active muscles in the human body, at the toxin is most effective in hyperactive muscles. Researchers in the early 1950s discovered that this specific action could be used for therapeutic purposes. Injecting minute quantities of the type A botulinum toxin into overactive muscles in the face could effectively weaken the muscle for a period of three to four months, or longer. It quickly became a useful treatment for a diverse range of conditions in which focal muscle overactivity was a problem, including crossed or lazy eyes (strabismus), uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm) and involuntary contractions of neck muscles (cervical dystonia). It was even found that this toxin could prevent excessive sweating under the arms (axillary hyperhidrosis). In the early 1990, it became clear that injections of botulinum toxin were also a valuable treatment for wrinkles and frown-lines. How does it work? As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. This means it creases rather than stretches. This is much like creasing a piece of fabric.

The more times we fold it up, the harder it is to iron out, and eventually it gets set. So every time we laugh or frown, it slowly but surely gets set on our faces, as the underlying muscle to shortens to hold the skin in place. The idea behind injecting a paralysing toxin is simply prevent specific muscles from contracting. With less muscle contractions, the overlying skin smoothes out and fine wrinkles soften to restore a more youthful and relaxed appearance. Basically, the bolulinum toxin works to block the chemical signals that trigger muscular contractions. It does not damage the muscle or the nerve, but essentially puts them to sleep. Hence, the beauty of the sleeping (a.k.a. sleeping beauty). Any areas that are not injected will remain normal, allowing facial muscles to contract with natural expressions such as smiling. This is unless you rub the area or your doctor is not precise with their injections or dosing. In such uncommon cases, adjacent muscle may be affected, as toxin diffuses out of the target area to affect other muscles.

Botox Pain,

One of the most painful places to inject botox is into the frown muscles. Of all the different areas that you can inject botox into the frown line area is the most painful. For Botox to work its best it needs to be injected directly into the muscle. The muscle in the frown line area is deep and lies directly on top of bone. It requires a pretty deep injection.

Another reason for feeling pain during and after a botox injection is the abundance of sensory nerves in your muscles and the surrounding areas. The sensory nerves relay impulses from the skin toward the brain, bringing it information from the skin. These are the nerves responsible for our sense of touch and feeling pain. These nerves are not affected by botox. When you hit these sensory nerves during the injection of a sensitive area – pain would be an understatement. This is the same with Lip injections and fillers.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS USED FOR?

To improve the skin’s appearance and to fill defects in the skin

  • for fine lines e.g. around eyes
  • for thicker lines e.g. above lips and around mouth and chin area
  • for deeper lines e.g. nasolabial folds and lip enhancement (called “Paris lips.”)

We divide then into:  TEMPORARY
                                      SEMI PERMANENT

TEMPORARY

There are many different types of fillers on the market.  We use bovine collagen (Zyderm and Zyplast) human collagen (Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast) and synthetic hyaluronan gels (Restylane, Perlane and Esthelis)

Collagen is a natural protein that cushions and supports the skin. Our skin normally contains this collagen framework of interwoven fibres, but becomes broken down due to age, injury, disease or sun damage.

If you choose to have the bovine collagen, a pretest on the arm is required one month prior to the treatment, to eliminate the possibility of having an allergic reaction (redness, swelling, pain).  No testing is required with the human collagen.

Hyaluronan Gel is based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, which is found throughout the human body. One of its functions is to keep the skin moist and elastic. The gel is made from a naturally occurring material, providing cushioning and support within the skin.

WHEN DO YOU USE COLLAGEN & WHEN DO YOU USE HYALURONAN?

Hyaluronan gel and human collagen are used in patients that are allergic to collagen, or do not have time to have the preliminary test required before treatment.
Our staff will advise you about the most suitable type of treatment for your needs.

SEMI PERMANENT

Sculptra is an injectable material containing poly-L-lactic acid that help lift and smooth deep lines wrinkles and furrows.  This filler works by stimulating the production of the body’s own collagen. The body, without the risk of allergy, absorbs it slowly and naturally.   You will need to have one to two follow up treatments, depending on your age, and skin type. Results may last for more than 18 months.

PROCEDURE:

If possible, remove all makeup before the treatment.
If desired, a cream may be applied for 30 minutes to numb the area first.
Local anesthesia may also be injected into the area.
The filler is injected directly into the skin using the finest needles.
The procedure takes about half an hour to an hour and is performed in our clinic.
You may go home or straight back to work immediately.

AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:

Do not use oil based make up or moisturizers for the first 48 hours. Do not touch the area with unwashed hands.
Any redness or crusts should settle in 24 to 48 hours.
Any small lumps under the skin can be massaged with a water-based moisturizer several times a day until gone. Sculptra patients will have specific instructions after the treatment which will be discissed in depth after treatment..
Please notify us of any persisting lumpiness, redness or itching to the treated area.
Bruising can occur, but will resolve in a few days.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Temporary fillers

Improvement is immediate although a second top up treatment may be necessary with hyaluronic acid. The effects lasts around six months, although can last longer depending on area injected and skin type.
A booster or top up treatment is advisable every 6 to 12 months with both collagen products and hyaluronic acid.

Semi permanent fillers – (Sculptra)
Even though a small difference may be noted several days after the first treatment, a second treatment must be performed about 4 weeks following the initial one, to stimulate more collagen production.
