What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
This treatment is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures out there. It is a non-surgical procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles/fine lines predominantly in the upper 1/3 of the face (i.e. forehead, frown, lateral eye skin areas).
This is a prescription only product, used to soften & reduce dynamic lines and wrinkles. When injected into a target muscle, it temporarily blocks the transmission signals from the nerve ending to the muscle, relaxing the muscle. Because the lines and wrinkles we treat with anti-wrinkle injections are often dynamic (i.e. caused by our facial expressions), with reduced muscle movement we can soften visible wrinkles to help you maintain a more youthful appearance.
Other useful applications include gummy smile, jawline contouring and bruxism (grinding).
What does the treatment Involve?
Treatment is relatively quick, it only takes about 15minutes to perform (excluding consultation time). Anti-wrinkle injections are injected into a few specific points (usually 4-10 injections per area) using a very fine needle. No local anaesthetic cream is needed: You may feel a few small pinpricks –usually very tolerable. The amount of product injected (units) will be determined based on personal preferences (i.e. desired outcome) & discussion with your doctor on the day.
What kinds of results can I expect?
As anti-wrinkle injections involve needles, there is a risk of some redness/minor bruising around the injection site – this will subside. Other side effects are rare. As there is NO DOWNTIME, patients can resume normal activities on the day of treatment, although vigorous rubbing over the injected areas should be avoided for at least four to six hours.
After your treatment, it will take a few days (on average 5 days) for you to start noticing the effect of the anti-wrinkle injection working, and can take up to 2 weeks for it to take full effect. At Beau Aesthetics, we encourage all clients to return for their complimentary follow up appointment after 2 weeks.
The effects of anti-wrinkle injections can last between 3-6 months* This is because the toxin temporarily blocks the signals from the endings, and as they re-establish new signals: lines and wrinkles re-appear.
- Tip: It is best to plan your injection at least 2 weeks before a big event
- Tip: To maintain the desired results – Consider Anti-Wrinkle Injections (2-3 times per year) on a regular basis to maintain the improvement
