What is anti-wrinkle injection used for?

As the name indicates, anti-wrinkle injection is used to treat expression lines and wrinkles on face that are formed over a long period of time by the movement of the muscle.

How does anti-wrinkle injection work?

When injected, anti-wrinkle injection relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections usually kicks in only after7-10 days. You will notice a gradual relaxation of the muscles treated, which starts 2-3 days after treatment. However, it is important for patients to understand that anti-wrinkle injections do not immediately improve severe static lines. These are the deeper lines and folds that form from repeated movements over time, which can be treated by a combination of products and treatments such as, topical cream, dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing. In most cases, after a number of anti-wrinkle injection treatments, an improvement in the static lines can be seen as the lines has sufficient time to recover.

How long does anti-wrinkle injection last?

The effects of anti-wrinkle injections are not permanent, and the effects generally lasts an average of 3 to 4 months and may vary between patients. In some patients, the more they have the anti-wrinkle injections, the longer they can eventually prolong their next treatment, as results can last up to the 6 month mark after a few regular treatments. As you treat the muscles that cause the wrinkles, they get smaller and less vigorous, so you aren’t as likely to form the wrinkles and won’t need it so frequently. The length of result does vary from client to client, due to a variety of factors.

Who is a suitable candidate for anti-wrinkle injection?

Pretty much most people are suitable candidate for the treatment, however the ideal age group of anti-wrinkle injection treatment candidate would range from 30-55 years old. It is important for patients to be realistic, and not get too aggressive or unreasonable with the treatment. It may seem to be a good way of getting rid of fine wrinkles, but young people nowadays tend to be negatively influenced into believing that it’s necessary, which is not in most cases. People can start the treatment in their early 30s as it is more about the maintenance. The treatment may be less effective for people over 60 years old due to poorer muscle tone. It is advisable for patients to book in a consultation with the professionals to get a full detailed assessment prior to getting the treatment done.
