What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as wrinkle reduction injections, are one of the most popular anti-ageing procedures performed around the world, providing a solution for light to medium depth facial dynamic and mimic lines. The treatment works by injecting a muscle relaxant into the problem area, blocking nerve signals and reducing muscular contraction. The result is a perfectly smooth, refreshed and youthful appearance. The most popular areas that are targeted include the forehead, glabella (frown lines between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet. Injections can also be performed on sagging jowls, the jawline, neck area and excessive areas of sweating, namely the underarms.
The injections are completely safe and may be performed in as little as twenty minutes, with results lasting for an average of three to four months.
Maintenance treatments are required every few months, and a customised treatment plan by one of our registered nurses can be designed during your initial complimentary consultation.
Anti-wrinkle injections have minimal downtime, with the best results being seen about two weeks afterwards, making it the ultimate non-surgical anti-aging procedure.
About the treatment
Wrinkle reduction injections are simple, nonsurgical and medically administered procedures that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.
The injection is comprised of a complex protein that is produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium, and is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It has also been safely used for the past twenty years to treat conditions such as eye spasms and central nervous disorders.
As a cosmetic procedure, anti-wrinkle injections have been used safely and effectively in North America for the past twenty years. They can also be combined with dermal fillers to further improve the appearance of the skin.
The injections are delivered where desired most. The goal is to weaken and relax, not to paralyse the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear, resulting in a natural soft look.
A fine-gauge needle is used and the number of injections required varies depending upon what part of the face is being treated. To treat the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eye, commonly referred to as the crow’s feet, up to three injections are administered. To treat forehead lines, a few more tiny injections may be required. The results of an anti-wrinkle injection are very dramatic, with the appearance of lines remarkably reduced, especially when smiling.
Other areas of the face such as the laugh lines, the folds in the area between the nose and lip, unwanted horizontal lines on the neck, and chin creases have also been treated. These areas, however, are treated less frequently. It is not uncommon to experience some bruising around the injection site. Ice packs can be applied before and after treatment to help minimise this problem.
This amazing treatment can reduce or eliminate wrinkles without surgery. It is a unique procedure that produces dramatic results, has few side effects and is reversible. It can provide the solution for a more youthful appearance with minimal recovery time.
