The Lotus Instititute – Coolangatta offers a central but discrete, purpose build Cosmetic Medicine facility with free parking.
Our anti-wrinkle and non-permanent HA fillers are offered at competitive prices.
All our cosmetic injectables are performed or supervised by Cosmetic Physician Dr John Stretch who is a Fellow of the Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine. He has been a respected medical practitioner on the Gold Coast for over 20 years.
Constant contraction of the muscles in the upper face leads to wrinkles. These are more pronounced when the muscles contract (dynamic wrinkles) but as time passes they also become noticeable at rest (static wrinkles).
Frowning and squinting as well as other repetitive facial movements all lead to facial wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections work by softening and thereby lessening the strength of the muscles involved in dynamic wrinkles. If caught early enough, the static wrinkles can also be diminished.
Dr Stretch uses the smallest needles available on the market and specializes in
the treatment of
Vertical glabellar lines between the eyebrows
Squinting lines radiating from the sides of the eyes (Crows Feet)
Horizontal forehead lines
The full effects of the injections take up to 14 days but you will start to see an improvement in 3 to 4 days. Treatments last around 3 months and most patients attend 2 – 3 times a year to treat and prevent further winkles. If you ever decide to stop having the injections, then you will still have benefitted from the time that the treated muscles have not been contracting.
However, be warned – the treatment is so effective and well tolerated that you will find
that you will keep coming back for more!
