Should I Get Anti Wrinkle Injections?

Face Care, Non-Surgical

As time passes, many of us desire to maintain a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections offer a widely embraced and budget-friendly solution that yields subtle, natural outcomes.

These non-invasive injections effectively reduce or soften undesirable wrinkles and fine lines, helping to deter the formation of deeper creases.

Regardless of diligent skincare routines, signs of aging are inevitable. Fortunately, contemporary cosmetic advancements empower individuals to prolong the smoothness of their skin, promoting a youthful radiance over time.

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

After years and years of your facial muscles contracting, wrinkles are formed. When we are young, the skin is elastic and springs back to shape with ease, but as we get older, it loses collagen and consequently, tautness. Anti-wrinkle injections block the neurotransmission between the brain and the muscle, keeping the skin relaxed and preventing it from wrinkling.

The injection consists of a diluted protein administered through a fine needle. Only a small volume is required, so the process is largely considered painless. If desired, we can provide numbing cream, but anaesthetic is rarely required.

Anti-wrinkle injections have been through rigorous testing and extensive clinical trials, with a strong foundation of published evidence supporting their efficacy.

What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?

The most common application for anti-wrinkle injections is on the face and neck, with popular treatments including for:

  • Crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes
  • Frown lines and lifting the corners of the mouth
  • Forehead lines, also known as worry wrinkles
  • ‘Bunny lines’ on the nose
  • Eyebrow lifts to gently open the eye area
  • Neck and lower face smoothing, minimising that ‘thin’ appearance
  • Lowering the upper lip for a fuller appearance

What are the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections?

There are many reasons people opt for this non-invasive cosmetic treatment. Being non-surgical means there is less risk involved, and of course, makes the procedure more affordable.

Recovery time is swift, with the injections themselves taking only a few minutes, and you can return to work or resume your plans immediately following your appointment. You can even apply make-up, as trauma to the skin is negligible.

Highly precise and efficient, anti-wrinkle injections cause minimal discomfort – akin to a pinprick. This is due to the extremely fine needle used.

If a more permanent cosmetic solution is desired, we have a full suite of options available, such as facelifts, and dermal fillers.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

You should see results from anti-wrinkle injections in as little as three days. The effects of the treatment usually last up to four months, and will gradually diminish from thereon out. That is why treatments every four months is recommended to retain the desired appearance.

It is worth noting that the skin does not become more creased if treatment is stopped, it simply returns to the original state.

What happens after treatment?

After receiving your anti-wrinkle injections, generally, there are minimal side effects – at worst, you may experience slight bruising, redness or swelling. In an extremely rare number of patients, treatments around the eye can cause the eyelids to droop, but this is always temporary.

The results are visible within a few days, and after about a week, your muscles should be relaxed entirely. While you can resume your plans immediately following the treatment, it is recommended to avoid exercise and, where possible, to limit the use of facial expressions.

Finally, it is important to keep the treated area clean.
