        Glabella & Frown Lines

        Repetitive facial movements over time cause the muscles between the brows to wrinkle. This gives rise to frown lines. Other key areas of wrinkling include the eyes & forehead. 

        Aging isn’t the only cause of frown lines; young adults can also develop lines from repeated squinting. Wrinkles become deeper and more obvious over time. Volumizing treatments reduce, not eliminate contractions, in turn reducing wrinkles. 

        Years of furrowed brows, especially during times of concentration, lead to the formation of frown lines, i.e., vertical lines between your eyebrows. We call them the number 11’s. Volumizing treatments reduce brow muscle contractions, smoothing out the region between the eyes.

        A wrinkle preventative option

        Twenty years of experience. We train the industry. Rest assured the results that you will receive will be the most natural to you. We listen to your concerns & will provide a bespoke treatment plan. Remember we not only inject, but we also employ a range of lasers, energy devices & clinical skin care to ensure you have a full 360-degree view of your rejuvenation journey.

        Volumizing injectables are a class of neuromodulators, a substance that reduces facial muscles from communicating with the nerve endings. This reduces facial muscular contractions. By minimizing muscular contractions, injectables can prevent wrinkles, fine lines & creases. 

        No matter your age, it’s never too late to recapture a youthful look. At Cutis Dermatology our skilful injectors will provide effective & safe solutions for fighting wrinkles & lines. Rest assured the results that you will receive will be the most natural to you. We listen to your concerns & will provide a bespoke treatment plan. 


        How experienced are we?

        We have been performing cosmetic injections for the past 20 years, our dermatologists are trainers for the industry, providing the best injectable treatments in Brisbane. Our team sits on numerous boards, including Allergan, Merz & Galderma. 

        Is there any downtime after volumizing treatments?

        Rarely, a tiny bruise may appear at the site of the injections. Ice application will reduce the bruise. If required make-up or tinted sunscreen can be used. Most patients will have some transient redness &  swelling of the treated area for less than half an hour after the treatment.

        When can I resume normal activities after volumizing treatments?

        Normal daily activities may be resumed after the treatment. Exercise should be avoided for 24 hours post treatment. Whatever you do, avoid facial massages for 24 hours post cosmetic treatment & for one week post volumizers. 

        When will I start to notice the results from volumizing treatments?

        The effects of anti-wrinkle injections are generally seen after seven to ten days. In some patients, this can start at two to three days, but may take up to two weeks to be very noticeable. If you have super deep static wrinkles, especially of the frown lines, it often takes 8 to 12 weeks for the area to completely relax after volumizing treatments. Once the lines are shallow, it is much easier to maintain. 

        How long do the results from volumizing treatments last?

        Longevity depends on the dose or units of volumizing treatments administered. Results can last up to three to four months. Studies have confirmed that injections are more effective & last longer when given at regular intervals. 

        Generally, treatment intervals can be longer in older patients as muscles weaken with maturity. If treatments are stopped, the muscle function will return to normal. Previously targeted wrinkles will return to their previous appearance.

        Can volumizing treatments be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

        Yes. We normally do these on the same day. The order is volumizing injectables first, then firming treatments last. This ensures correct product placement. 

        What about lasers?

        Nope, not a good idea, unless the laser is away from the area of firming treatments. Swelling, even a small amount can misplace volumizing treatments, leading to unwanted muscle relaxation away from the target area. We will guide you as to what is safe & appropriate. 

        Can lasers give a more permanent result compared to volumizing treatments?

        Yes, & no. Lasers are great for static wrinkles, or wrinkles at rest- especially on the upper lip area. Lasers do not treat dynamic wrinkles. 

        A good way to understand wrinkling is to fold a piece of paper. Folding (or movement), leads to creases. Lasers are great at straightening up the crease, but don’t stop the action of folding. Anti-wrinkle injections stop the folding, thereby preventing creases. 

        Is one brand of volumizer better than the other?

        It’s like paint. Some artists prefer one of the other, hence the preference comes down to the injector & your personal experience.


        What are the possible side effects?

        While volumizing treatments are extremely safe, there are a few minor complications that can arise after the procedure. 

        If the muscles are too relaxed by injections, the brows can droop and make your eyes look smaller & feel heavier. These results can remain from 4-6 weeks to 3 months but are fully reversible. An accurate incidence of this side effect is around 1% of cases. Lower face treatments have a slightly higher incidence of muscle droop & asymmetry. 

        What if I don’t respond to volumizing treatments?

        ‘Non-responders’ & true ‘allergies’ are exceedingly rare. Most cases of non-responders just require more units. Allergies to botulinum toxin are also uncommon. If this occurs, your injection will select a short chain anti-wrinkle molecule from another company. Be guided by them.

        How sure are we of giving you a natural result?

        Experience, we have been doing this for two decades!  Our expert injectors have intimate knowledge of facial aesthetics and muscles, allowing them to precisely target wrinkles with pin accuracy. This translates to softening of unwanted wrinkles while preserving your unique facial expressions. The result is natural.

        Who can’t have volumizing treatments?

        • Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women
        • Certain neuromuscular disorders such as Lambert Eaton Syndrome
        • It is not recommended for people under the age of 18, unless for excessive sweating.

        Which is more effective, firming treatments or volumizing injectables?

        The efficacy of either procedure depends on your clinical scenario. Firming treatments can be used preventatively, namely before you’re really noticing lines & wrinkles. We have numerous patients in their mid-twenties that undertake preventative treatments as this prevents wrinkles from forming. 

        Volumizing injectables on the other hand, correct volume loss & provide support. The most common areas for fillers are the under-eye areas, lips, cheeks & jawline. The choice of each product depends on the area of concern & need. As a guide, the older you are, the more important hyaluronic acid is, & the less important firming is. 

        The simple rule? Lines of expression need anti-wrinkle. Lines at rest need filler. Anti-wrinkle injections are a good choice for hitting “crease points.”‘ This is  where muscles contract. Hyaluronic acids are best for deep lines that are present even when facial muscles are not contracting. 

        Which lasts longer, firming treatments or volumizers?

        Hyaluronic acid volumizers, which come in a variety of thicknesses so that the right one can be chosen for each skin type, last 6-24 months. Collagen stimulating dermal fillers will last beyond two years. Longevity depends on the type of volumizer, location & importantly your metabolic rate. 

        Wrinkle removal can last around 3-6 months. Longevity is shortest in areas of repeated movement including the lips (lip flip) & marionette areas. Repeated firming treatments can increase longevity, as a duration of action of over 9-12 months is common for those who have had previous injections.
