Non Surgical (Ancillary) Procedures
As part of the ageing process, the detrimental effects of sun exposure, natural gravity and facial muscle movement become more evident. The tissue that keeps skin looking youthful and firm begins to deteriorate. This results in "crows feet", smile lines and facial creases. Lips also shrink. The usual process to try and alleviate these lines and creases is to inject certain substances or reduce muscle action. *
Below are some of the most commonly performed Day Spa treatments at Bodyworx.
Utilising a muscle relaxant that works at the nerve muscle junction, a tiny amount is injected into the muscle via a fine needle, blocking the nerve impulse from reaching the specific area. As the muscles ease up, wrinkles in the skin slowly diminish and often vanish, making the face look more relaxed and revitalized. Areas typically treated are the furrowed lines between eyebrows. This is a quick and easy treatment that can be carried out during a lunch break. *
These may be injected into fine lines and wrinkles to make the skin appear smoother and younger. These injectables can also be used in lips and cheeks.
There are several types of injectable fillers available. They are used for lip enlargement, deep wrinkles and facial contours e.g. cheekbone enhancement.
Different manufacturers of these fillers will claim different durations of effect.
They are made of hyaluronic acid and are injected under the surface of the skin at intervals, along the line of the wrinkle.
