Skin wrinkles have two major contributors; the loss of collagen in the skin, combined with the movement of our facial muscles. With time, these two factors take their toll, and you might suddenly feel as if you went from no wrinkles, to having deep lines in your face almost overnight. For some people, this natural fact of ageing is simply part of the journey we call life, but for others these lines are a source of deep dissatisfaction. If you fall into the latter group, anti-wrinkle injectables could be the right choice for you.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections involve injecting a muscle relaxant into the area where you’re concerned about the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This product then retards the movements of the muscle in question, relaxing it and stopping it from making the strong movements which contribute to the formation of the lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injectables stop wrinkles from becoming worse, or becoming permanent lines etched on your face. Often people might choose to undergo anti-wrinkle injections in conjunction with dermal fillers, which are able to restore volume and plump out permanent wrinkles.
Where can anti-wrinkle injections be used?
Some of the most popular treatment areas for anti-wrinkle injectables include:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead lines and wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines around or under the eyes
- Nasolabial folds
When should I get anti-wrinkle injections?
More and more people are choosing to undergo anti-wrinkle injections as a preventive measure, before wrinkles become permanent and leave deep lines on their face. Suitable for both men and women, this safe and very effective procedure is now commonly used as a preventive between the ages of 25 and 45.
Will anti-wrinkle injections make me look frozen?
We’ve all heard the adages of celebrities who have gone too far with anti-wrinkle treatments, to the point where the media will claim they can’t even crack a smile properly. Don’t worry, we promise you won’t leave Herstellen Clinic looking frozen and fake! We take a conservative approach to our anti-wrinkle treatments, ensuring you will achieve natural-looking results.
Will I see my results immediately?
The effects of your anti-wrinkle treatment will not take full effect for between 10 days and three weeks after the treatment. The good news is that, provided you don’t let the effects of the treatment wear off entirely, your next treatment will take effect more quickly.
How long do anti-wrinkle injectables last?
The longevity of your results will vary depending on your unique circumstances. Some people will find they last three months, others may find they last closer to six months. Unfortunately, it’s not possible for us to accurately predict this.
Which anti-wrinkle injectable brand do you use?
Due to our strict guidelines in Australia, we’re actually not able to mention the names of products we use in anti-wrinkle injectables, or their sister treatment dermal fillers. However, you can rest assured that we only use the highest quality products. We will be able to tell you more about the products in person, at your consultation.
