For Smoother, Younger-looking Skin

Many people wish to look younger and more refreshed without undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures such as  facelift  or  eyelid surgery.   For these women and men,  Mr.Maxwell  is pleased to offer non-surgical wrinkle treatments including muscle relaxing agents, injectable fillers and fat injections at his Melbourne, Victoria practice. These  are performed as office procedures,  with minimal down-time.

Muscle Relaxing Agents / Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Smiles, frowns, and other facial expressions are controlled by the facial muscles. The loss of skin elasticity that occurs with ageing means that the underlying muscle movement produces wrinkles which worsen over time. Common sites are the ‘frown lines’ in the glabella (the area between the eyebrows),  ‘crow’s feet’   at the outer aspects of the eyes, and horizontal lines and creases on the forehead due to the action of the frontalis muscle which raises the eyebows. In a good many patients this muscle is unconsciously overused to elevate drooping skin in the upper eyelids. In addition to the forehead wrinkles this can produce ‘tension headaches’. Muscle relaxing injections  in the forehead can  thus not only eliminate the  wrinkles but also relieve the headaches.  Similarly upper blepharoplasties can help the forehead muscles to relax, as there is no longer any excess skin to be elevated.

Muscle relaxing agents contain a neuro-muscular toxin (Botulinum Toxin) that causes muscles to become temporarily paralysed. Following injection into targeted areas, the underlying facial muscles cease to contract for  approximately 4 mths. As a result,  skin wrinkles produced by activity of underlying facial muscles can be eliminated. Results are usually noticeable within 2 – 3 days of treatment.  Treatment needs to be repeated every  four to six months.  There are two brands of Botulinum Toxin – Botox and Dysport – which are equally effective.  The injection of Botulinum Toxin is perfectly safe.

Fat Injections (Fat Grafting)

Fat injections are another form of filler treatment that can be performed to rejuvenate an individual’s appearance without complicated cosmetic surgery procedures. The attraction of this technique is that your own natural fat is used as the filler. But like any other procedure, fat grafting is not totally free of complications.
