Dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections are some of the most popular treatments in the world. Rejuvenating tired looking skin and giving a fresh and youthful feel to those who need a little boost to their ‘feel good factor’.
What is the difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle injections?
With dermal fillers and wrinkle injections sharing an extremely similar purpose, the differences between the two can often cause confusion. At Laser Skin and Vein Clinic, the procedure of dermal fillers consists of injecting a filler made from hyaluronic acid gel (a sugar already present in our body), into tired-looking areas of the face and neck. Whereas, the treatment of anti-wrinkle injections sees a facial muscle relaxant injected into the skin, relieving tension from the muscle and therefore preventing it from contracting to form a wrinkle.

At our cosmetic clinic in Adelaide, we pride ourselves on providing a natural-looking and youthful service. To ensure you receive the most natural treatment from your chosen clinic, here are some tips to follow:
1. Do your research
Ensure you have researched the clinic you plan to receive treatment at. At Laser Skin and Vein Clinic, our team consists of doctors and registered nurses that consistently undergo training to remain up to date with the latest procedures and industry developments.
However, some clinics are not as dedicated to implementing strict training regimes and so complications can arise. It is not worth the risk when it comes to your health, so we encourage you to do your research beforehand, so you don’t regret it when it’s too late.
2. Start natural
In terms of dermal fillers, it’s best to start naturally. Although these ‘angry lines’ may have been bugging you for a while, try not to get too excited and ask for large amounts of product.
Our trained specialists will advise you on what volume of filler will give the most natural and youthful look, so you can feel refreshed without looking ‘overdone’. In saying this, it’s important to recognise that some clinics may not hold your interests in high regard, and may inject more filler than necessary. This is why it is important to choose a clinic that prioritises the implementation of natural-looking enhancers (see point 4).
3. Safety of product
You can rest assured, knowing that the products used in our treatment for dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections are completely safe. All products used are TGA approved and are naturally occurring substances in the human body. Our products are the same as those used safely by millions of people around the world for over two decades, giving effective results every day.
It is important to check that the clinic you are visiting uses safe products. This is because unsafe products can not only affect the results of your treatment, but can also potentially cause hazardous implications for your skin later down the line.
4. Choose a clinic that prides themselves on ‘natural’ enhancers
At Laser Skin and Vein Clinic, we promise to keep natural results at the foremost of our priorities. We refrain from using amounts of product that can drastically affect the mobility of facial muscles, and instead use just the right amount to leave your face looking youthful and rejuvenated. Our trained specialists will recommend volume in a private consultation with you, which will be uniquely based on each particular case they see.
Some clinics may not have the same ethical values as us, and so, remaining ‘natural’ may not be of concern to them. It is important to find a clinic whose ethos aligns with the outcome you want.
