For years cosmetic physicians have been using cosmetic injections to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. At Capricorn Skin & Laser Centre, we offer cosmetic fillers and Botox® to help turn back the clock and provide a more supple, youthful appearance for our clients. 

Botox® Cosmetic Injections

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that causes wrinkles to relax and soften. The procedure only takes a few minutes and no anaesthesia is required. The injection is injected with a fine needle into the specific muscles with minor discomfort.

How do cosmetic injections work?
A cosmetic injection blocks signals from the nerves to the muscle so the muscle can temporarily no longer contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines. 

How long do cosmetic injections last?
The treatment will last 3 months. As the muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. Lines and wrinkles appear less severe over time as the muscles are being trained to relax. 

How much does it cost? 
The cost is based on the amount of units needed to achieve wrinkle smoothing which varies between clients. We charge $15.00 per unit. During your consult prior to booking our Cosmetic Coordinator will discuss pricing suited to your requirements. An average cost has been worked out below: 
Forehead Lines: 10 units $150

Juvéderm Cosmetic Fillers

A cosmetic filler is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.

Fillers are injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. The process takes only about 30 minutes and results are immediate. There's minimal recovery or downtime.

How long do cosmetic fillers last? 
One treatment can smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental touch up treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.

What are the possible side effects of cosmetic fillers?
Side effects are usually mild lasting 7 days or less and include temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness and swelling. Cool compresses are ideal to apply after treatment to help soothe any swelling or tenderness.

How much does it cost? 
The cost is based on the amount of filler needed to achieve the desired result which varies between clients. During your consult prior to booking our Cosmetic Coordinator will discuss pricing suited to your requirements.
