What causes wrinkles?

These imperfections are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin provide the support structure for skin, helping to keep it smooth and resilient. As these fibers break down, the skin begins to lose its strength and elasticity. When this happens, fine lines and wrinkles can begin to appear. For most, exposure to the sun's damaging UV rays is the major cause of skin aging resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and rough texture.

How do Injections for fine lines and wrinkles work?

Today’s products are fully bio-compatible and therefore do not require any pretesting so you can see the results immediately. An ultra-fine needle is used to inject the product directly into the skin in tiny amounts, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and the results are instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, Dr. Ali anesthetizes the area by applying some numbing cream to the treatment location.

Cost of injections

Injectable fillers vary in cost. Some are more appropriate than others for certain conditions. Costs also vary from patient to patient as it is a customized procedure based on your specific needs. Moreover, the needed amount of fillers is also a cause of variation in cost. So after an examination, Dr. Ali will help you decide which fillers are best suited for your individual situation.

Which areas can be treated with VelaShape?

Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.
