What is Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-Wrinkle are injections which reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They are typically made of Botulinum Toxin, which is a neurotoxin. A chemical which temporarily blocks the nerve impulses to muscles. Preventing them from contracting. It is injected as a solution into precise areas of the skin. Over the next two weeks the anti-wrinkle injections will take effect. Over 3-6 months your body will clear the Botulinum toxin and the muscle contractions will return.

How are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Preventative?

Wrinkles are depressions in the skin. As muscles contract in the face, they shorten. And the skin on top falls into the depressions causing the lines to appear. Over time the skin gets used to this movement and lines begin to appear or are “etched” into the skin.

If you receive Botulinum toxin injections twice a year, for the majority of the year your muscles are not contracting, allowing the skin respite and non-movement. Currently our average age of patients receiving Anti-Wrinkle Injections is 28 years of age, as this is typically the age where permanent “etching” starts to occur.

How long does it last for?

Between 3-6 Months. Around 5% of the population can develop an antibody to Anti-Wrinkle Injections. The body will become more resistant to Anti-Wrinkle Injections and results will not last as long as 6 months. However this is only a very small handful of the population

What areas can you treat with Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

What is the downtime?

After a thorough consultation the procedure is actually very quick. Lasting 2-5 minutes.

There is very mild redness from the injection point and some bumps in the skin from where the solution of Anti-Wrinkle Injections is.

This normally settles within 10 minutes. A few of our patients come in on their lunch break, given the relatively low downtime period. Results will kick in at around day 2-3. Final result is 2 weeks post injection. A complimentary top up may be required.
