Join Maria on her cosmetic journey of facial restoration. In today’s episode I inject 1ml of dermal filler in and around the lips helping to restore the structure of her lower face and what a fantastic outcome she has.
To help achieve this 1ml of Hyaluronic Acid based non-permanent filler was used, typically this can last 6-9 months.
After using a topical anaesthetic cream, a number of lip filler techniques were used:
- Linear threading along the borders of the lips to achieve definition and reduce upper lip wrinkles.
- The fanning technique was employed to achieve volume in both the upper and lower lips.
- Vectoring or tenting was used to help evert the lower lip.
- Finally, structural support to the oral commissures was given to help lift up the corners of the mouth.
To ensure patient satisfaction and symmetry, the lips are assessed regularly. At the end of the treatment, the lips are cleansed with antiseptic cream and moulded into shape.
The outcome is fantastic, the lips look immediately plumper and after 2 weeks they’re fully settled with the upper lip mouth wrinkles reduced dramatically. Our beautiful models lips look hydrated, volumised and suit her face wonderfully. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome.
Join me as I attend an educational seminar at the Versace Hotel Gold Coast, covering everything you need to know about Women’s Health and how to reduce your risk of breast cancer.
Set in the opulent Palazzo Versace, this one day seminar focussed on Women’s Health from how to detect breast cancer, how it’s managed today and how to reduce your chances of getting it. The conference also covered other important topics like bleeding in pregnancy, IVF treatments and egg freezing.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women in Australia - other than non-melanoma skin cancer.
It is the abnormal growth of cells lining the breast lobules or ducts, it may also affect men. There are several types of breast cancer and management will vary accordingly.
Some people have no symptoms and the cancer may be detected through routine screening. However, others may experience symptoms such as; feeling a new lump, sore nipples, nipple discharge or turning in, changes to the size or shape of the breast, skin dimpling or even red or swollen breasts.
It is important that if you are experiencing any of the above or are concerned that you seek medical help.
Currently in Australia, women aged between 50-74 years of age are invited to free screening mammograms every 2 years. Women aged 40-49 and over 75 are also eligible to receive free mammograms.
Treatment depends on the breast cancer found, but may typically include radiotherapy, chemotherapy, surgery or hormone therapy.
We now know that the risk of breast cancer can be reduced by lowering alcohol consumption and maintaining a healthy body weight.
In today’s episode, we rejoin our beautiful model for anti-wrinkle injections to the upper face.
Our model wished to maintain movement of her upper face and so I’ve opted to use baby doses of anti-wrinkle to achieve a soft natural look.
As you can see treatment time is fairly quick with initial inflammation post procedure expected to resolve after 10-15 minutes. Changes are expected to be seen around 3-5 days with optimal results at 2 weeks lasting 3-5 months in duration.
Why Treat Multiple Muscle Groups for Anti-Wrinkle? | 2/4: TREATMENT AREAS
In this episode I discuss which treatment areas I’ll be injecting on my model and why I have chosen to do this. I also talk about compensatory muscle movement that can occur when injecting particular areas of the face.
