Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are on the frontline of anti-ageing treatments.

When injected in small doses into targeted areas, anti-wrinkle injections block the signals between the nerves and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. They reduce the appearance of lines to produce a look that is fresh and more youthful.

Fine lines under the eyes, Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles  and even the bunny lines at the top of the nose are all the dreaded tell-tale signs of ageing. But now, thanks to anti-wrinkle injections, you can achieve a well-rested, youthful look which is subtle, yet incredibly effective. We can’t stop the clock on ageing, but we have the power to slow it down.

Advanced anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to reduce an enlarged master muscle and gummy smile.This helps reduce grinding of the teeth, slims the jaw and reduces the elevation of the upper lip that exposes the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the treatment painful?

An anti-wrinkle injectable are administered with a very fine needle, and takes only a few seconds. It’s a tiny prick of the needle for a moment, and most patients tolerate it very well. 

Several injections are given into each concerning area.

Will I see immediate results?

It varies by patient, but you can expect to see the results within 7 – 14 days as the muscle beneath the skin of the frown line relaxes. The results are subtle and natural for a first time patient, making you look well-rested and more youthful.

Are there any side effects after anti-wrinkle injectables?

Anti-wrinkle injectables are one of the most used drugs globally in the aesthetic and medical field and are safe and effective when administered by a practitioner who has correct understanding of the underlying facial musculature.

Side effects can include minor bruising at the site of the injection, so don’t take any medication that thins the blood for several days prior to your treatment as this can increases the risk of bruising.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Each patient responds differently but in general, anti-wrinkle injectables last between 2 and 4 months before the relaxing effect on the muscle wears off.

Will I look frozen after anti-wrinkle injectable injectables?

No, your practitioner will study your facial musculature and administer the right amount of product for you, for the most natural and subtle result. The ‘frozen’ or unnatural appearance you sometimes see on can be a result of over-treatment.

Will anti-wrinkle injections prevent further fine lines and wrinkles?

It’s the repeated contraction of the facial muscles that caused the wrinkle in the first place, so once the muscle relaxes the wrinkles don’t form in the treated area until the effects of the treatment wear off. 

Regular treatments mean the muscles will stay relaxed and fine lines and wrinkles are kept at bay.
