Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple, non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to relax wrinkle-causing muscles in the face, smooth out deep wrinkles and expression lines, helping you to achieve your desired youthful look.
Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a form of natural, purified protein. It works by injecting a muscle relaxant to block the receptors in the muscle, causing the muscle to become more relaxed whilst losing its contraction ability, which then provides your skin with a smoother surface, preventing and reducing the forming of wrinkles. Generally anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat areas such as:
The results are not immediate however the effect builds up gradually and subtly within 7-10 days after your treatment. You will see the full effect of your treatment within 2 weeks from the day of your session.
The effects are not permanent, and generally lasts an average of 3 to 4 months and may vary between patients. The often you get the treatment done, the longer the results can last. (In some cases up to the 6 months mark)
Anti-wrinkle injections are administered by using a very fine needle which some describe as the sensation of small pin-prick or mosquito sting as only the very tip of the needle penetrates into the muscle. The treatment works by blocking the receptors in the muscle, causing the muscle to become more relaxed whilst losing its contraction ability. The dosage required varies from client to client and on each individuals desired look that they wish to achieve. The treatment itself is quick, safe with minimal discomfort. Each session can take around 30-45 minutes.
Anti-wrinkle injections freeze the muscle in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, providing you a smoother, more youthful look, whilst dermal fillers are designed to provide volume and contour by enhancing your facial features. However, depending on what you would like to improve you can opt for one or the other treatment, or you can in turn combine both treatments together to provide you with the ultimate results you desire.
