What is the anti-wrinkle treatment?
Anti wrinkle injections have been popular in Australia for many years to reduce facial lines. You are probably wondering how we form wrinkles? As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin. Sun damage also speeds up the ageing process. The most important factor in the formation of wrinkles is repeated muscle contraction. When we frown repeatedly, we can create horizontal lines in between the eyebrows. Smiling and squinting can also produce crow’s feet.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to
How does the anti-wrinkle treatment work?
Injectable muscle relaxants reduce the power of selected muscles in order to smooth out facial wrinkles. Small amounts of muscle relaxant are injected into specifically selected muscles. The results start around 5-10 days after treatment and you can expect to get around 3-4 months of longevity.
At Facelove, we use two types of injectable muscle relaxants. These 2 products are also approved for use in children with cerebral palsy to help them walk. Injectable muscle relaxants are used in hospitals widely for treatments such as post stroke spasticity and twitching eyes.
What can I expect on the day after treatment?
Having anti-wrinkle injections is truly a ‘lunchtime’ procedure. It does not take a long time and is minimal in terms of hassle. On the day after your treatment, you can expect to be a little red in the area that has been injected. This passes after about 30 minutes. It is possible that you could get a small bruise, but it is not necessarily common. It is important that you do not exercise after treatment and you do not rub the treated area.
What can I expect from the treatment overall?
At Facelove, we know this treatment should give a natural, refreshed appearance. Your friends will ask if you have been on a good holiday.
How much should I invest?
Depending on the area to be treated and the strength of your muscles, treatment can range between $150 and $700 and last 3 to 4 months.
