These wrinkles form with time from the activity of muscles in these areas. Anti-wrinkle treatment injections can be used to temporarily weaken these muscles, causing the lines to diminish after treatment, as the muscles no longer function to produce them.
There are two types of treatments to smooth away wrinkles and they are often used together for optimum results. There are injectable muscle relaxants that work by relaxing the muscles that cause us to frown and there are dermal fillers that are used to plump up and smooth out folds and lines that are permanently on our faces, such as vertical lip lines or the folds that run from our nose to our lips (nasolabial folds). Dermal fillers return lost volume and definition that age has taken away from the lips.

FAQ: Anti-wrinkle Treatment


Questions about Muscle Relaxant

1. What is Anti-wrinkle Treatment?
About Anti-wrinkle treatment

Wrinkles are formed by our everyday facial movements. When we are young these lines spring away when we stop laughing or frowning but as we age our faces become maps of our daily emotions, with lines and wrinkles permanently etched for all to see.

Sometimes these lines can be at odds with how we are feeling. Frown lines, formed over years of expressions, can make us look stressed and tired even when we are feeling our best.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the solution. They smooth out and remove the wrinkles to leave a fresher more youthful face.

3. What is injectable muscle relaxant?
Injectable muscle relaxant

is a natural purified protein used to relax the specific facial muscles that cause the wrinkle, formed during facial expressions. Once the muscle is relaxed you can no longer contract it. The lines become softened and new ones are prevented. It is ideal for, but not limited to, the treatment of frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines.

Injectable muscle relaxants can also be used for improving the jawline without surgery. Say goodbye to an undefined ageing jawline . Your jawline can be lifted and defined with the aptly named Nefertiti lift.

4. What is involved?
Anti-wrinkle treatment is simple and highly effective.

Using a very fine needle a small amount of the muscle relaxant is injected into the wrinkle causing muscle. There is no down time and you can return to normal activities immediately. It takes 3-4 days for the treatment to begin to take effect and up to 10 days to see the full effect.

5. How does it work?
Anti-wrinkle treatment is a simple process.
The solution is carefully injected into the muscles that are causing the skin to wrinkle – after serveral days it prevents the nerves from moving the muscle, therefore smoothing the overlying skin. The remaining facial muscles keep contracting as per usual so that normal and more desirable facial expressions are unaffected.
6. How long does the procedure take?

10-15 minutes per session, depending on the size and number of areas treated. 

7. When do I see the result?
See result within a week
It takes 3-4 days for the treatment to begin to take effect and up to 10 days to see the full effect.

8. Is it painful?
Yes but uncomfortable is minimal
Discomfort is minimal with only a tiny sting that lasts a few seconds, however, topical anaesthetic cream is available for those who prefer and ice is used to further minimize discomfort.
9. How long will it last?
Treatment is not permanent

The treatment lasts approximately 4 months with a gradual wearing off as expressions lines return to their original appearance. You can return for further treatment when you feel you need to be retreated to maintain your smoother look. If you choose not to return your lines and wrinkles will return to their pre-injection state.

10. Are there any side effects?
