Anti Wrinkle Injections

Beautifully smooth and refresh the appearance of your skin

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

The role of anti-wrinkle cosmetic injections is to relax wrinkle-causing muscles, thereby softening and preventing the development of expression lines, creating a smooth and rejuvenated appearance.

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a purified protein which has over a 20 year clinical safety profile, and has been used to treat more than 20 million cosmetic patients worldwide.

Prior to its use in the aesthetic cosmetic industry, the product used in anti-wrinkle treatments has been used to effectively treat many different types of disorders, such as Blepharospasm (uncontrolled eyelid twitching), Cervical Dystonia (spasmodic movement of the neck & shoulders), as well as to relieve the muscular tension associated with Cerebral Palsy and Stroke. It is a wonder drug!

The Anti-wrinkle injectable product has a reputation for being a well-studied and safe medication, which is administered only by experienced medical practitioners.

Anti-Wrinkle injections are the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the industry. The Anti-wrinkle treatment  is one of the safest available for the reduction or softening of wrinkles.

We frequently use anti-wrinkle treatments to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes (Crow’s Feet). It may also be used to treat lines around the mouth and those on the neck.

A few tiny injections are administered to the skin which relax the muscles and thus, allows for a smoother, more refreshed appearance. The effect will take three to five days to appear and will generally last for 3-4 months.

It is important to note that the creases at rest, known as ‘hyper dynamic’ lines may not be completely relieved after your first anti-wrinkle treatment, however will continue to polish with future anti-wrinkle injections. This is because the active muscles are given a chance to relax, enabling the creases to weaken over time.

Anti-wrinkle injections may also be useful to prevent the development of lines and wrinkles before they become apparent.

The Anti-wrinkle injections cosmetic procedure is a medical breakthrough in the quest for a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe and effective procedure that have drastically changed how and why we stay looking and feeling young.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do Anti-wrinkle injections work?

Administered by a series of tiny superficial injections, Anti-wrinkle injections travel to the underlying muscle, blocking the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (chemical messenger) responsible for muscular contraction. This relieves the expression lines at the skin surface, creating a smooth and refreshed appearance. After a period of time, new axons are formed, which gradually enable transmission of the chemical messenger to the muscle, thereby slowly reactivating muscular contraction.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Once injected, you may begin to notice results within 2-3 days, however it will take up to 2 weeks to observe best results. The expected duration of results of anti-wrinkle injections can vary from individual, and this is dependent on a number of factors including the dose administered, the skin’s condition, hydration, metabolic rate and degree of muscular use in the treatment area. For most patients, anti-wrinkle injections are best scheduled between 3-4 monthly intervals to maintain results. By maintaining results, we can help to slow the progression of wrinkles and continue to improve those stubborn creases.

Do anti-wrinkle injections have any side effects?

Minor side effects post anti-wrinkle injection treatments include temporary localised inflammation, including redness, swelling, heat and small lumps at the treatment site. These symptoms are very normal and will usually subside within a couple of days. There is also the potential for minor bruising at the treatment site, which is usually easily concealed with makeup.

Will anti-wrinkle injections work on my skin?

Effectiveness of anti-wrinkle injection treatment will depend on two main factors.

  1. How profound the lines are.
  2. The overall condition of your skin. Definitely your age is to be considered, however it is not the most important factor. It is rather an unhealthy lifestyle, such as smoking, excessive drinking and unprotected sun exposure which will affect the efficacy of anti-wrinkle treatment results.

Will my face look frozen after anti-wrinkle treatment?

Anti-wrinkle injection treatment comfort

Anti-wrinkle injections only take a few minutes and for most patients it is a very comfortable procedure. If required, we can offer a topical anaesthetic to ensure the treatment is as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Anti-wrinkle Injections post-treatment care

It will generally take between 2-3 days for the Anti-wrinkle injections to settle into the target muscles. Therefore it is important during this time to refrain from massaging, rubbing or applying heavy pressure to the treatment area/s. It is best to remain upright for the first 4 hours and to abstain from exercise for 48 hours post anti-wrinkle treatment. At DermaCare you will be scheduled a follow-up appointment 2 weeks post treatment to assess the results. We endeavour to ensure your absolute satisfaction with the treatment outcome.
