Frequently asked questions

ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS

What are Wrinkle Injections?


Wrinkle injections are procedures where an active ingredient is injected into the treatment area to relax muscles that cause wrinkles. At Pep Me Up we use a superior and proven solution of muscle relaxing injections.




What is involved in treatment?


Marsha provides a full consultation and assessment prior to any treatment. A small amount of solution is injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief. After the injection, it takes about 5-7 days to notice the effect and 10 days for the full effect.




Is this treatment safe?


The solution has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and for medical purposes for over 25 years. In addition to it’s cosmetic use, the solution has been used to treat cerebral palsy in children and movement disorders in adults. Although the wrinkle injections have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and other medical conditions. It is very important to tell your cosmetic practitioner if you have health problems or on any medications prior to treatment.




Are side effects possible with wrinkle injections?


Although side affects do occassionally occur Marsha takes particular care to minimise them. Minor side effects include bruising which may last 5-7 days, occasional redness or swelling which usually goes in a few hours. More significant side effects relate to dosage and positioning and that is why Marsha continues to undergo regular training and upgrading to fine tune her skills.

These more significant side effects include uneven results, poor or failed results, puffiness around the eyes and even mouth or eye droop if the wrinkle injections placement is inappropriate. These more significant side effects usually improve in 2-4 weeks and can improve quicker with appropriate care.




How long do wrinkle injections last?


It lasts for approximately 3 months, depending on the individual. The result will usually wear off progressively after 2 months as expression lines gradually return to their original appearance. The lines will never be worse after treatment. For some clients, the more often you have the treatment the less frequently it is required as the effects may last longer with each application.




What areas can be enhanced with wrinkle injections?

  • Lines and wrinkles on the upper face
  • Frown Lines (between the eyes)
  • Crow’s Feet (lines on the sides of the eyes)

DERMAL FILLING & LIFTING

What is Dermal Filling and Lifting?


Dermal Fillers are products that are injected into the skin to fill in defects such as creases, lines, wrinkles and scars or to rejuvenate the skin and replace volume. Injected directly into the dermis (the deeper layer of skin), Dermal Fillers fill in and elevate the skin’s surface producing a smoother, more youthful and relaxed appearance.




What is involved in treatment?


Dermal Fillers are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Local anesthetic cream or dental blocks may be administered for increased comfort.




What do Dermal Fillers do?


Once injected, the gel plumps and lifts the skin gently to replace collagen that has been lost by the natural aging process. Semi-permanent fillers work by creating an internal framework (or scaffolding) on which new collagen and elastin can attach creating the structure, tone and firmness for a more youthful appearance. Movement and sensation are not affected – your lips and skin will look and feel soft and natural.




Is treatment safe?


Although there are a variety of dermal filling products only proven and tested fillers are used at Pep Me Up. Dermal fillers are biodegradable and most are based on substances naturally occurring within the human body. As they are found naturally in human cells, dermal fillers are well tolerated and there is no need for allergy testing although the dermal fillers have been used for many years they should not be used in pregnancy, lactating mothers and other medical conditions. It is very important to tell your cosmetic practitioner if you have health problems or on any medication prior to treatment.




What areas of the face may be treated with Dermal Fillers?


The main areas treated with dermal fillers are; around the mouth, cheeks, eyes and brow. Dermal fillers may also be used on lips to redefine, enlarge or make fuller.




How long do the results last?


Dermal Fillers usually lasts between 6 to 9 months, depending on skin type, lifestyle and skin maintenance. Some longer acting Dermal Fillers can last between 9 to 18 months.




Are there any side effects to this treatment?


Side-effects of Dermal Filling may include some swelling, redness and occasional bruising. This will disappear within a couple of days although occasional severe bruising can last up to 10-14 days. Although most people resume their daily routine immediately after treatment some more severe side-effects, such as severe bruising and infection, can prevent you from resuming your normal duties for 2-4 weeks.





LIP ENHANCEMENT & LIP REJUVENATION

What is Lip Enhancement and Lip Rejuvenation?


Lip enhancement is achieved by injecting Dermal Fillers into the lips to enhance their size, shape or borders. Lip Rejuvenation also involves injecting dermal fillers into the lips to refresh older lips that have thinned out, developed lines within the lip, or around the lips and to rehydrate tired looking lips. Gone are the days when lip enhancement meant a duck bill or trout pout. At Pep Me Up we prefer a natural enhancement that will leave you with fuller lips that look just like you were born with them!

DERMAPEN

What is Dermapen?


Dermapen skin needling also known as microneedling is increasingly being accepted by the people and is one of the most innovative rejuvenation therapies available today for treating various skin problems. It is very natural that as we age the production of the fibroblast cells that stimulates the growth of the collagen and elastin diminishes, which will result in sagging of the skin, appearing of wrinkles and fine line and loose skin. It is very important to stimulate the production of the collagen and elastin for healthier and younger looking skin and this can be done with the Dermapen skin needling treatment. Dermapen skin needling will create the micro-injuries which will ultimately trigger the growth of fibroblast cells that will stimulate the production of collagen resulting in plumper and smoother-looking skin. Basically, the Dermapen skin needling helps the skin to repair itself after it has encountered any physical damage like cuts, scars or any other physical damage. When an injury occurs, your skin will destroy the old, damaged tissue that causes acne scarring and wrinkles and will replace it with freshly produced collagen. This treatment is best for all the skin types and tones, especially for the people who are facing a problem like acne scarring, wrinkling, fine lines and dilated pores. You might know that Dermapen skin needling treats the full face for the skin rejuvenation but it’s not restricted only to face; it can also treat the other areas of the body like the abdomen, legs, arms, and hands. It can safely treat all forms of scars like acne or surgery scars, abdominal scars, stretch marks, burn contracture scars and also the loose body skin.




Why choose Dermapen skin needling over the surgical treatments?


The Dermapen skin needling gives you rejuvenated and plumper skin with no pain, minimal discomfort and with very little downtime. In this therapy, disposable needles are used which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination. The depth of the needles is adjustable and this allows for a treatment customized to the patient’s needs. Being the most advanced treatment, it can easily treat the hard to reach areas like around the nose, eyes, and lips. Needles are injected vertically so that it can easily penetrate scar tissue. It is the most controlled and consistent treatment that yields optimal results. It causes less pain and redness for the patient.
