HOW DO ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS WORK?
Wrinkles and lines are a natural part of ageing that form as a result of continual contraction of facial muscles. These help to create different facial expressions like frowning and squinting. Anti-wrinkle injections are procedures whereby an active ingredient is injected into the muscle to relax the excessive contractions in the face. After a treatment, excess movement and the appearance of unwanted lines are diminished, allowing you to achieve a rejuvenated and more restful appearance.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
You will receive a thorough face to face assessment and consultation where we discuss your individual concerns and desired goals. A precise injection of a purified protein solution is injected into the specific facial muscle using a very fine needle, with only minor discomfort. Anti-wrinkle Injections take approximately 15-20 minutes, however they produce fast and highly pleasing results, relaxing the excessive contraction of muscles and smoothing the visible wrinkles for 3 to 4 months.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Depending on the condition of your skin, results may be visible within 3-5 days of receiving treatment. The full effect will be seen 2 weeks post treatment. You are encouraged to return for a 2-week follow up where you will be assessed to ensure optimal results and optimal dosing have been achieved.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Anti-wrinkle injections on average last 3 to 4 months however this is dose dependent, with effects gradually decreasing over time. Please note, the appropriate treatment interval varies from person to person.
With advanced techniques, we can now also treat areas previously considered untreatable such as: a gummy smile, excessive sweating and slimming of the jaw. Skillful treatments will maintain your individual personality and the expressions you like your face to convey but can also soften or remove those imperfections you feel are necessary to be treated.

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
Generally there is no downtime after anti-wrinkle injections, however they may be a small amount of bleeding, bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site. In some cases, residual bruising may take several days to subside. Other rare however possible side effects may result from your individual response to the medication used. Depending on the area treated, such temporary effects could include: spocking or over-active eyebrow; this is an indication that you may need an adjustment in the dose and distribution of the anti-wrinkle injection, easily rectified at the 2 week follow up.
