Cosmetic Injectables

Select Skin’s Dr. Stephanie Hyams talks cosmetic injectables for wrinkle reduction and volume replacement

What are Cosmetic Injectables?

The term ‘Cosmetic Injectable’ covers both botulinum toxin based muscle relaxants and injectable fillers. Australian advertising guidelines prevent us from using brand names, but you probably know what we’re talking about! For the purpose of this article, we’ll call them cosmetic injectables.

Our facial muscles help us express emotion by moving our eyes, eyebrows and mouth. Having used those same muscles from birth the skin over the contracting muscle can develop a line or wrinkle. Sometimes a skin analysis will show there are some skin care issues we can address. But for a faster path to less wrinkles we can stop the muscle contracting for a short time. By doing this, the skin rests and is able to remodel the collagen over that ‘wrinkle’. So you can see that by administering muscle relaxants to a very carefully considered selection of sites on the face, a more relaxed appearance is achieved. Wrinkles are reduced and everyone at that 30 year school reunion remarks how well you’re looking!

Introducing Dr. Stephanie Hyams

Dr Stephanie Hyams is a highly experienced cosmetic doctor with many years of cosmetic consultations to her credit. She will chat with you and devise a plan that best suits your specific concerns in an agreed timeframe and budget.

What Dr Hyams will do, is be very honest about what can be achieved. What Dr Hyams will not do is make false promises that are unachievable. More importantly, Select Skin’s favourite cosmetic injectable Doctor wants you to look like your best self, not a caricature of someone over injected – we want your friends to make remarks like “you’re looking so well Susan”, not “what have you had done Susan?!”.

As we age the bones in our face change. Combined with facial fat loss, depleted ‘volume’ means the skin on our face drapes less youthfully. By restoring volume with injectable fillers, the overall appearance can be considered refreshed and youthful. No one should be asking what you’ve had done! A very subtle change is the aim. Via careful application of fillers, static wrinkles can be softened and volume restored for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
