Dermal fillers rejuvenate the face by adding volume to the mid and lower facial regions, subtly enhancing areas such as cheeks, lips and jaw lines to give you a younger fresher look. Dermal fillers can correct wrinkles, improve lip definition, and address the signs of ageing from the inside out.
All young skin has one thing in common: hyaluronic acid. Found in all skin tissue and identical from species to species, this “building block” fills out the space between collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, holding in water and maintaining the skin’s volume.
With age, levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease so we end up with furrows, wrinkles and thinner lips. By injecting dermal filler into the skin, the depressions are filled and the appearance of the wrinkle is softened or eliminated.
How Does It Work?
Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultra fine needle. A local anaesthetic block can also be administered for added comfort. Furthermore, if the patient does not like the result, the dermal filler can be dissolved with a natural enzyme and, within hours, the skin will return to its former state.
How Long Does It Last?
Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years. Semi-permanent or permanent fillers can last up to five years, and there are reports of even longer-lasting results.

Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments available worldwide. This is a safe and simple procedure that has been in use for over 20 years.
Anti-Wrinkle injections relax the muscles allowing the lines to soften, resulting in a younger, fresher look.
Typically, frown lines and forehead lines are one of the first signs of ageing. Anti-Wrinkle injections are perfect for, but not limited to, softening fine lines in the upper face. The treatment will temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, thick neck bands and crows feet near the eyes. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles that cause wrinkles relax, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
How Does it Work?
Used in a cosmetic medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified protein, small doses of Anti-Wrinkle injection block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by the nerve cells that signal muscle contraction. A few, tiny injections block the nerve impulse, relax the muscle and the dynamic wrinkle overlying the muscle is smoothed away. Since the injection only relaxes the muscle beneath the injection site, it has no effect on other elements of facial expression.
How Long Does it Last?
The effects of Anti-Wrinkle injections usually last 3-4 months. Further injection will be required for a continued result. After several treatments, the effects often begin to last longer. Repeated use is truly anti-ageing!
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are most commonly used for:
- Glabellar frown lines (deep creases between the eyebrows)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crows feet (wrinkles on the lateral aspect of the eyes)
- Chin relaxation (‘orange peel’ effect)
- Frown lines from $200
- Forehead from $100
- Crows feet from $200

The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. The Dermapen™ stimulates natural collagen and allows for the deep delivery of topical nutrients to stimulate repair and renewal.
How Does It Work?
Dermapen uses multiple needles that pierce the skin vertically, stimulating natural collagen production while allowing fine channels to be createdin the skin. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the Dermapen causes less trauma and minimal epidermal damage therefore causing less pain and discomfort, and a safer more effective treatment. It is even safe to use around the delicate areas such as eyes and mouth.
Dermapen is used to treat age damaged skin.fine lines and wrinkles, skin tightening and rejuvenation, large pores , stretch marks acne scars and surgical scars.
When Do I See Results?
Results will be seen after the first treatment but lasting and more significant results will be seen after 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months.
Dermapen is most commonly used for:
- Tightening and rejuvenating skin
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing acne scarring
- Reducing large pores
- Reducing stretch marks
- Reducing surgical scars
MATRIX PDO Threads
Matrix PDO Threads are another method of tightening and thickening your skin. They are a type of single PDO filament, are smooth and without barbs
Matrix PDO Threads are inserted into the sub dermal level, in a mesh-like pattern, to promote the creation of new collagen. The threads activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect.
They are minimally invasive and can also be used multiple times.
What are Matrix PDO threads made from?
Our mono threads are made from Polydioxanone – an absorbable polymer. This material is both flexible and durable.
The threads become a support structure for your face, allowing collagen production to increase. Overtime, the threads are absorbed by the body.
How do Matrix PDO threads tighten the skin?
They induce natural collagen production, which creates a tightening effect. This effect lasts for 6-12 months.
Results may be seen in 6 weeks and will continue to improve over 2 to 6 months. While the threads slowly dissolve, their effects may last up to 12 months.
MATRIX PDO threads can be used to treat the following areas:
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Forehead and brows
- Neck and jawline
- Nose to mouth lines
- Marionette lines
