Ageing skin is an inevitable aspect of life. As we age collagen and elastin breaks down as a result the skin is less firm and elastic. Improvement is easier than you may think! More and more people are turning to cosmetic treatments to enhance and rejuvenate their face. Anti-wrinkle injections can deliver great results and Cosmedic Skin Care can help you to achieve this.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections work by using a natural purified protein that relaxes specific facial muscles that cause expression lines, creating a natural appearance. Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them, resulting in lines gradually smoothing and preventing new lines from forming.

The muscles on our face allow us to express a range of emotions but over time the repeated use of the same facial muscles can cause lines and wrinkles to occur, particularly to the frown area, forehead and crow’s feet which can make you look unhappy, worried or angry even when you’re not!

The most commonly treated areas are the frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Anti-Wrinkle Injections can also be used to create an eyebrow lift, stop the mouth from pulling down, relax nose lines and chin creases, reduce vertical neck bands and treat excessive armpit sweating.

How do Anti-Wrinkle injections work?

Anti-Wrinkle injections work by relaxing facial muscles that cause dynamic lines when you smile or frown.

What is involved in having an Anti-Wrinkle Injection?

Treatments are quick and simple and are non-surgical procedures. During treatment a small amount of purified protein is injected into specific facial muscles with a very fine needle. Treatment takes generally around 10 minutes. Typically, any pain is minimal and brief. No anaesthetic is required; you can assume normal activities immediately. It is important to follow any after care instructions.

When will I see Results?

Generally, people start to see results within 1-2 days of their treatment and it can take from 10-14 days to for full results to be visible.

How long will the Anti-Wrinkle Results last?

The effects usually last up to 3 to four months gradually decreasing over time. If you have regular treatments the effect may last longer.

Are there any side effects?

In the treatment of facial lines, the doses used are very small. Any side effects are temporary and limited to the injection site, such as pain, burning or stinging, bruising, swelling or redness.

Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections be combined with other procedures?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections can be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers (which replace or enhance volume under the skin) and skin treatments that help skin texture, tone and quality. Your experienced clinician at Cosmedic Skin Care can discuss a treatment plan to assist you in reaching your facial enhancement and rejuvenation goals. Cosmedic Skin Care uses the world-wide brand of purified protein to reduce lines and wrinkles, softening the appearance of the face causing a youthful appearance. At Cosmedic Skin Care, we offer a complimentary anti-wrinkle injection consultation with our onsite General Practitioner to assess the area/s that you would like treated.
