Non-Surgical

Dr Moss can advise you of your best non-surgical options to maintain and enhance your surgical results. He provides a select few treatments himself and can arrange a seamless treatment plan with the team at Liberty Belle Skin Centre.


Treatments performed by Dr Moss

Some of the most effective and popular procedures today do not involve surgery at all! If you are not ready for surgery, or if all you need is a slight improvement, this can be an excellent interim step. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers soften lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoothed, improved and more youthful appearance.

They are simple, fast and effective treatments that usually involve no “down time”.

Dr Chris Moss is an expert on facial anatomy and a recognised trainer in the art and science of these techniques, therefore the highest possible quality results are achieved.

Areas
Frown lines between the eyebrows
Crows feet lines around the eyes
Horizontal forehead wrinkles
Smokers’ lines and mouth ageing
Lip enhancement

Best Age
Men and women, late twenties to sixties

Options
There are two types of injections: the first type (muscle relaxing injections) reduces the excess activity of wrinkle-causing muscles and full effect takes 7 to 10 days. The second type (the dermal fillers) immediately replenishes the skin beneath wrinkles and furrows. For very deep expression lines the benefits are greater if both types of treatment are used together. The fillers can also be used for lip enhancement to produce a more full and voluptuous lip, soften vertical lip wrinkles (smokers’ lines) and redefine the lip line.

Recent advances now enable safe and dramatic rejuvenation of ageing in the mouth and lower face as well as the commonly treated upper facial areas.

These treatments are performed in the rooms, take 15-20 minutes and local anaesthetic is used as required.

Duration of results
The benefits of dermal filler and muscle relaxing injections are temporary because the substances are gradually and safely absorbed into the body. The duration varies between people and usually lasts from 3 – 6 months for muscle relaxing injections and 4 – 12 months (depending on product selected) for dermal fillers.

Patients requesting long lasting wrinkle reduction should consider the option of fat injections. Please see the information section on Fat Injections.

Expertly performed injections of dermal fillers can restore shape and definition of the lips and improve the signs of ageing. Dermal filler injections refine, fill, lift or plump the lips as well as re-define the shape of the lip and lip line. They are also used to treat thin, flat lips; drooping at the corners of the mouth; a flattened out upper lip; overall loss of volume and to improve the appearance of vertical lines around the mouth, particularly in smokers, that cause lipstick to run. Results last 4 -12 months depending on the product used.

Problem
Thin or ‘mean’ lips, poorly defined lip lines, vertical smokers’ lines on the lips causing lipstick to run.

Solution
Lip fullness in today’s society is a sign of beauty and youthfulness. Lip enhancement or lip augmentation is possible using non-surgical lip filler injections or long lasting Fat Injections.

For those who require a simple non-surgical treatment with little or no down time the lip filler injections are most appropriate. Two products are available – one which lasts around 4 months and the other which lasts around 9 – 12 months. Both of these products are safe, non-animal derived and non-allergenic, so no skin tests are required. Results are temporary.

The particular lip filler products used in this practice have been selected for their long track record of safe and effective cosmetic use. We view safety as the highest priority and do not recommend products with any lesser track record.

For those who require a long lasting lip enhancement, the treatment of fat injections is more appropriate. Fat cells are harvested from the thighs or tummy and injected into the lips and lip line. See information on Fat Injections.
