Facial Wrinkle Rejuvenation

The most common non surgical Cosmetic procedure performed in Sydney today is the use of Wrinkle rejuvenation therapies.

It is a Non Surgical approach to rejuvenate the Face, Neck & Eyes. However, it may also be used following a Face lift to maintain the results.

This is a neurotoxin (muscle relaxant); it is used to rejuvenate wrinkles typically in the regions of the face and neck.

These images are not intended to indicate or reflect likely results or outcomes for any other patient other than those displayed here. Every patient will have before and after results consistent with their individual and unique anatomy and physique.Therefore patients should not make decisions to have Cosmetic Surgery based solely on before and after images.

The volumes or quantities used to effectively rejuvenate the face and neck are not sufficient to cause systemic harm (several thousand vials would be required). Muscle relaxant is used for non cosmetic conditions such as Hyperhidrosis (excessively sweaty palms, armpits or feet), blepharospasm (twitching eyelids), migraines and cerebral palsy patients.

The procedure would take approximately 10-15 minutes to perform and Dr. Bobby Kumar uses ice blocks as an effective anaesthetic to minimise pain of the any therapy and reduce the risk of bruising. If patients are taking blood thinning medications bruising is likely.

Non-surgical Wrinkle rejuvenation can be used as an adjunct to other procedures or it may be the only cosmetic procedure some patients will ever have performed. A common misconception though is that it is “addictive”. Patients decide if at all and when they require further therapies to maintain a rejuvenated, natural and aesthetic face and neck.

Some patients will start to experience the results within 2-3 days and the peak effects occur at around the two week period.

The effects will last initially for 3 months, then patients will begin to notice a return to muscle activity of the muscles previously blocked. If a patient has subsequent wrinkle rejuvenation procedures they will find that as the muscle atrophies and weakens the effect may last a lot longer and the frequency and perhaps the dosage of Muscle relaxant required decreases respectively.

There are other forms of Muscle relaxant commercially available in Sydney; Dr. Bobby Kumar has many years of experience with wrinkle rejuvenation therapy, the brand supplied by Allergan is the form of muscle relaxant he continues to recommend and use in his Sydney practice.

During your consultation Dr. Bobby Kumar will take a history and perform an examination to determine if non-surgical wrinkle rejuvenation is suitable for you. There are patients that require a surgical option such as Face lift or Neck lift to achieve the results they desire. Hence a realistic expectation and realisation of the limitations of any rejuvenation therapy is essential.

Complications include pain, discomfort, redness and bruising. In inexperienced or untrained hands there is the risk of eyelid droop or a down turned mouth.
