Treatments

Botox

Botox® is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Made from a purified protein, Botox injections block nerve impulses, relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles. The face looks rejuvenated as the injection takes effect over the next few days. Botox has been used safely for cosmetic purposes for many years. Like many medications however it needs to be administered carefully. All injections at South Island Medical Aesthetics are performed by physicians.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are designed to smooth wrinkles and folds, sculpt lips, and shape and replace volume in the face. The physicians at South Island Medical use two different types of skin fillers: hyaluronic acid, a natural substance present in the skin which is gradually lost as skin ages, and also a combination filler of both calcium and phosphate – natural substances present in bones.

Dermal Rolling

Dermal rollers work by stimulating the skin cells (keratinocytes) to release certain growth factors and cytokines. It is these released factors which stimulate the skin to develops more collagen. The rollers also work to stimulate the melanosomes which helps to even out skin colour.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the topmost layer of the skin, removing dead or damaged cells and leaving new skin supple and radiant. The vacuum action helps to stimulate microcirculation, which increases the blood supply that provides nutrients needed for skin regeneration. It also stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity. Microdermabrasion results are striking without being invasive, a treatment most people find relaxing and refreshing.
