Facelift surgery can reduce sagging lower face skin, but won’t improve some wrinkles including forehead wrinkles and crows feet. Another complaint with facial ageing is the hollowness in temples or cheeks; even the lips become thinner with age. Fortunately, good results can be accomplished with quality anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers.
Anti Wrinkle Injections: Do cosmetic injections hurt?
Most people find that injections are not as uncomfortable as they anticipated. There are also tricks such as using prescription-strength numbing cream, ice blocks and strategic cannula placement to minimise discomfort.
You may feel a bit tender in some areas (and some patients may have transitional bruising, swelling or redness), but these pass quite quickly.

Cosmetic Injections and Facial Rejuvenation (Muscle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers)
Dermal fillers and muscle relaxing cosmetic injections are popular ways of enhancing facial surgery.
Sometimes cosmetic injection techniques can be used for several years prior to facelift surgery, comprising a form of ‘liquid facelift’ that helps restore lost facial volume (cheeks, lips, temples) or enhance features (sharpening the jawline or augmenting the chin). They can be used to reduce some wrinkles, crow’s feet, forehead lines (the infamous elevens) and combat ageing-related atrophy and dark circles under the eyes (tear trough areas).
