Benefits and Side Effects of Anti Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections relax the targeted muscles in the treatment area, weakening their ability to contract. Contracting muscles cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time, frequently creasing the skin.

Also referred to as wrinkle relaxers, these anti ageing injections can also stimulate collagen and elastin production, contributing to healthier and stronger skin.

After an in-depth consultation to determine the suitability of your desired treatment area for the procedure, one of our experienced injectors will insert a tiny amount of wrinkle relaxer at a time, precisely focusing on your specific aesthetic concerns. We may ask you to frown, smile or make other facial expressions so that we can see where the fine lines and wrinkles appear. This will guide us to perform a precise, accurate procedure.

The amount of the wrinkle removal product that you need will be measured in ml and will depend on your specific skin concerns, as well as the results that you are hoping to achieve. Each procedure is personalised for each candidate, tailored to meet the needs of each individual and achieve the best results possible.

What concerns can wrinkle relaxers treat?

Some of the most common treatment areas and concerns addressed include:

  • Frown lines (the middle of the eyebrows)
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles or lines under the eyes
  • Mouth or smile lines
  • Nasolabial fold

The details of the procedure, including the specific procedure steps, can be discussed during the consultation so that you know what to expect! Typically, the procedure can take about 30 minutes to complete, but the total treatment time will depend on the details of your individual procedure.

Aftercare and results: What to expect

Most clients do not require any downtime after their appointments, however, may wish to speak with their practitioner about minimising the appearance of redness or bruising if it occurs. Your clinician will chat with you about the best anti-wrinkle injections aftercare steps to take during your consultation, so that you can feel prepared to take care of your skin after the procedure.

Generally, you should:

  • Attempt to move the muscles in the treated area
  • Avoid irritating the treated area by rubbing or itching the area
  • Take a break from strenuous exercise for about 24 hours
  • Stay away from excessive sun exposure
  • Sleep and rest with your head slightly elevated to help reduce any swelling

As for results, top-up treatments will be required to continue to weaken the muscle.These maintenance treatments are generally needed every three to four months, but the timeframe will differ from person to person.

However, as well as repetitive muscle movement, age lines are also most often created by a loss of collagen, which anti-wrinkle injections can stimulate the body to create more of over time. The collagen boosting nature of the cosmetic injections can have long lasting positive effects on the skin’s natural ageing process.

Anti-wrinkle injections also help to slow the aesthetic signs of ageing by limiting the muscle’s ability to contract and deepen or create new lines, making them a preventative treatment option as well!

Costs of wrinkle relaxers

The costs of anti-wrinkle injections are measured per ml of the formula used. The amount of ml used will depend on a number of factors, such as the depth of the lines and wrinkles in the area, the strength of the targeted muscles in the area, and the desired results.

Overall, as a personalised procedure, costs are influenced by factors that can differ from individual to individual, including total treatment time.

Anti-wrinkle injections side effects

The risk of complications from anti-wrinkle injectables is low. However, it is important to be aware of common side effects and what is considered routine and what is not. The most often seen, and temporary, side effects of these treatments include:

  • Redness at the injection site
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Headaches

Less common complications can include pain, dizziness, blurry vision, scarring from injection sites and drooping of the forehead or upper eyelid. These rarer complications may be avoided by only performing the procedure on suitable candidates, and by ensuring that candidates will follow the important preparation and aftercare instructions.

Your clinician will discuss the possibility of side effects and what you can do to minimise or ease your symptoms before your session. Please share any concerns you have with your practitioner prior to your service and speak with a health professional immediately if you notice any uncommon or potentially serious side effects.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections FAQs

Anti-wrinkle injectables are not a permanent solution, however, can slow the signs of aesthetic ageing and be repeated for ongoing maintenance as they gradually dissolve.

Most of our clients notice results from their treatments for up to three to six months, however, these can depend on their unique plan, solution, health, and lifestyle. Please speak with your clinician about ongoing appointments that can create a routine maintenance plan to help achieve your optimal results.

These two types of cosmetic injectables can achieve similar aesthetic results, both commonly used for wrinkle treatment and referred to as anti ageing injections. However, they each work differently. Unlike dermal filler solutions, anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectables insert a muscle relaxant into the treated area that limits muscular contractions. Instead of filling out the indented area with filler that can plump out and add volume into the area, anti-wrinkle solutions are designed to limit the ability with which age lines contract in the area thereby preventing, or slowing, their formation.

Both of these cosmetic injectables can be great treatment options for a wrinkle removal procedure, and one is not necessarily better than the other. The right anti ageing injection option for you will depend on the condition of your skin, your ideal aesthetic outcome, and other factors such as your health history or allergies. During a consultation, a member of our experienced team can assess your desire treatment area and recommend which wrinkle treatment to undergo.

Apart from a slight pinching sensation from the small needles, the procedure should be quite tolerable! The pinching from the needle should be quick and mild, only lasting for a few seconds. If you are concerned about comfort during the procedure, be sure to let your clinician know during your consultation.
