So you are considering Wrinkle Reduction Treatments or Volume Enhancement Treatments at our Adelaide clinic? The two cosmetic treatments can be effective at minimising fine lines, reducing acne scarring and restoring that desired youthful appearance.

But what are the differences between Volume Enhancement Treatments and Wrinkle Reduction Treatments? Are the treatment benefits of Volume Enhancement Treatments the same for Wrinkle Reduction Treatments?

Here we explore the key differences between the two injectable treatments to help you ascertain which option is right for you.

What do Volume Enhancement Treatments and Wrinkle Reduction Treatments have in common?

Volume Enhancement Treatments and anti-wrinkle treatments offered at Cosmos Aesthetics’ Australia-wide have several things in common:

  • Both are cosmetic treatments designed to enhance your natural looks;
  • Both can treat and help manage visible signs of aging;
  • Both are injectables administered using a syringe;
  • Both have minimal side effects and little downtime;
  • Both only require short consultation times;
  • Both should only be administered by a medical professional such as a qualified doctor or cosmetic registered nurse.

What is the key difference between Volume Enhancement Treatments and Wrinkle Reduction Treatments?

The main difference between the two injectable treatment is:

  • Volume Enhancement Treatments help to restore volume and enhance features
  • Wrinkle Reduction Treatments help to relax muscles and smooth fine lines

Characteristics Of Volume Enhancement Treatment injections

If you’re seeking a radiant glow, Volume Enhancement Treatments may be the option to help your restore this youthful appearance. Cosmos Aesthetics Austalia-wide, including Adelaide, use hyaluronic acid Volume Enhancement Treatments which are a naturally occurring substance found in the body. This gel-like injectable is placed under the skin to plump up treated areas and smooth out deep folds and lines where volume loss has occurred.

The Volume Enhancement Treatment cosmetic injections are designed to restore volume to areas of the face where the skin tissue has degenerated due to the ageing process, environmental factors, fat loss or genetics. The Volume Enhancement Treatments work to also fill in acne scars or deep hallow pockets under the eyes.

Volume Enhancement Treatment treatments are also effective at contouring and reshaping facial features such as the nose, jawline, cheekbones or lips. This can be to enhance a person’s overall appearance, correct problem areas or to create symmetry with the face shape. For some, this negates the need for invasive cosmetic or plastic surgery.

In addition, hyaluronic acid Volume Enhancement Treatments help to hydrate the skin by binding to water and stimulate collagen production. This improves the overall elasticity and flexibility of the skin which is particularly important in areas where the skin tissue has thinned.

  • Volume Enhancement Treatments are injected into the dermal layer under the skin;
  • The injectables fill and restore volume loss;
  • They can help contour facial features;
  • They improve skin quality including hydration and texture;
  • Hyaluronic acid Volume Enhancement Treatments are naturally dissolved by the body;
  • The effects typically last 6 months to 2 years depending on the treated area;
  • Maintenance Volume Enhancement Treatment treatments are available to extend the results.

Characteristics Of Wrinkle Reduction Treatments

Wrinkle Reduction Treatments are a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that relaxes the facial muscles that cause the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re seeking facial rejuvenation by minimising the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet or smile lines, an anti-wrinkle treatment may be a good option for you.

Wrinkle Reduction Treatments work by blocking the nerve impulses that control muscle movement. When injected into the target muscle tissue, the Wrinkle Reduction Treatments cause the muscles to relax 3 to 5 days after treatment. Full effects are typically not seen until two weeks after the cosmetic treatment and last anywhere from 3 to 8 months.

As with the Volume Enhancement Treatments, Wrinkle Reduction Treatments will gradually be reabsorbed into the body. Repeat injections will be required to maintain the results long-term. Some individuals may experience longer-lasting effects with continued use due to the targeted muscles unlearning the responses that originally cause the development of the fine lines.

  • Wrinkle Reduction Treatments into targeted facial muscles;
  • The injectables help reduce fine lines by relaxing the muscles;
  • They may help to reduce nerve stimulation;
  • The results are seen up to 2 weeks post-treatment;
  • The effects last between 3 and 8 months depending on the treated area;
  • For long-term results, repeated treatments are recommended.
