Skin Glow Program Melbourne

As we age, skin loses collagen, fat and hydration with the loss starting in the mid-20s. This loss ultimately results in signs of ageing, such as dry, sagging, rough or wrinkled skin.

The ENRICH Skin Glow Program

The ENRICH Skin Glow Program is a series of dermal filler microinjections strategically placed into the skin of the face and neck. The fillers we use at ENRICH Clinic gently improve your skin from the inside out, made of a naturally-occurring substance in the body that plumps and hydrates the skin.

As we age, this naturally-produced substance depletes. Dermal filler injections can compensate for the natural loss of this special ultra-hydrating substance, as well as stimulate the production of collagen to help the skin maintain a smooth, supple appearance.

Our Skin Glow Program uses a special cross-linked filler designed to restore hydration in the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin, resulting in long-lasting improvement in skin quality. Dermal fillers act to smooth skin and retain moisture just below the skin’s surface, where it is most needed. The Skin Glow Program treatments refine pores and scars, and improves skin tone and texture.

Understanding the glow gun

The Skin Glow Program uses an advanced micro-injection machine called Vital Injector 2, (also known as the glow gun) with the 5-needle system placed just below the skin’s surface, where it absorbs water – up to a thousand times its own weight – to hydrate and increase collagen production.

The glow gun, or injector, evenly distributes a small amount of filler under the skin of the treated area.

This filler stimulates collagen production by stretching the collagen-producing cells (fibroblasts). The glow gun not only makes your skin look and feel better immediately, but it can also create thicker/plumper skin due to increased collagen production over time.

The whole procedure takes about one hour.

How treatments feel

There is some pain or discomfort from the glow gun , although, as with every cosmetic procedure, it’s patient-dependent. Prior to the treatment, patients will be advised to take pain control medication (1.5 hours before the treatment) to minimise discomfort. Ice may also be used.

Recovery from glow gun treatments

Dermal fillers are gentle to the skin once injected. The procedure is performed with multiple micro-injections. In the worst-case scenario, mild bruising or swelling can be seen after the treatment but usually disappears quickly. If required, a laser can be used to hasten the breakdown of the bruise. It is recommended that this treatment not be performed within four weeks of a major social event.

Best candidates for glow gun treatments

Anyone with skin that has some irregularities can benefit from this treatment. If you want to  give your skin a boost, this treatment could be for you. The glow gun  can be used as preventive measure to maintain moisture and skin smoothness at any age. The combination of the needling plus the dermal filler boost the benefit.  It really depends don’t he patients needs, skin type and expectations.

It is recommended to cease aspirin, fish oil or any blood-thinning medications prior to treatments since excess bleeding can result in bruising.

Treatment areas

The most popular area for treatment is the face, especially the top lip, chin and cheeks, where signs of ageing can become quickly obvious.

Other popular treatment areas include:

  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back of the hands

What to expect from treatments

Results typically last for 6-12 months. An initial course of 2-3 treatments, four weeks apart, is recommended for best results. After your initial treatment series, annual treatments help maintain skin.

What other treatments work well with the Skin Glow Program?

Our Skin Glow Program is not just a skin rejuvenation booster on its own. It’s also ideal for maximising and sustaining the results of other anti-ageing treatments such as laser skin rejuvenation, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Combining treatments tend to give you a better result.
