What is an Anti-Wrinkle Injection?
Anti-wrinkle injections help you look and feel more attractive and refreshed by eliminating wrinkling formed by undesirable facial expressions. Anti-wrinkle injections are made of a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles to create an improved cosmetic appearance.
We always want an appearance that matches how young we feel inside. But as we get older, so is our skin. Keeping a smooth and youthful face is never an easy task. Anti-wrinkle injection is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery for anti-aging. It is composed of natural and purified protein, helping wrinkle-causing muscle areas in the face relax.
Our anti-wrinkle injection is our way to give your skin an overall younger and more vibrant look. Injecting a muscle relaxant to target problem areas – most commonly the forehead, frown lines between eyebrows and crows feet.
Before & After
- Frown lines or worry lines between the eyebrows.
- “Surprise” or forehead lines.
- Crows feet or “laugh lines”.
Other areas where Anti Wrinkle Injections can be effective include:
- Eyebrow lift
- Reduce Gummy smile’ (showing excessive amount of upper gum on smiling).
- Treating Excessive sweating.
- Elevate the corners of the mouth.
- Reduce muscle bulk at the corner of the jaw to refine and slim jaw lines, help teeth grinding (bruxism).
Treatments are quick, predictable and well tolerated with virtually no downtime.
Droplets of muscle relaxant are injected into selected facial muscles via a very fine needle. Treatment feels like a series of quick stings. Ice, and/or anaesthetic cream may be used to minimise discomfort.
Treatment takes just a few minutes.
Results are not instant but usually begin to appear after 2-3 days and may take up to two weeks for maximum effect. Results can be as subtle or dramatic as preferred by adjusting the dosage delivered. Because anti-wrinkle injections target only specific muscles, untreated facial expressions will not be affected.
Men usually require larger doses than women – sometimes up to double the dose.
Many people experience absolutely no side effects. Due to the biological mechanism of action, anti-wrinkle injections are more conducive to side effects. Common side effects include a small risk of short term redness, tenderness or bruising.
