Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Injectable treatments for cosmetic purposes are very popular and have gained international recognition for their effectiveness over the years.

These aesthetic techniques are used for the treatment of facial lines, folds and contouring of the skin with good results and high degrees of patient satisfaction.

Wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers are the mainstay of medicines used in facial cosmetic treatments. These drugs can be used individually or in a combined way depending on the cause of the wrinkles and the outcome required.

More commonly combination treatments are being used for an overall natural aesthetic appearance of the face, with results of smoother and younger looking skin.

It is important that a facial assessment and a detailed medical history are performed by a qualified medical practitioner before any treatments in order to determine the cause of the wrinkles and give appropriate advice.

Causes of wrinkles:

  • Natural ageing process
  • Sun exposure
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Repetitive use of the facial muscles responsible for expressions

Visible signs:

  • Horizontal lines (forehead)
  • Frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
  • Crows feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Nasolabial lines (folds/creases from nose to corner of the mouth)
  • Sagging of the skin

How can treatments help?

Wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers are selected and used depending on the cause of the wrinkle or creases.

Wrinkle relaxing injections act mainly on on the hyperactive/overactive muscles responsible for expressions. A number of small injections are made into the targeted muscles where the drug works by temporarily paralysing them. By preventing muscle contraction eventually they will weaken and relax.

The treatment will soften and eliminate the wrinkles for approximately 3-4 months. Usually visual signs of improvement will take approximately 5-7 days and possibly up to two weeks to have maximum desired effect.

Dermal fillers used are made from a natural occurring substance found in the body ‘hyaluronic acid-based gel’, which is injected just under the skin (facial crease) to add volume and shape to the affected area. Other benefits are added moisture and lubrication to the treated skin.

Aesthetically dermal fillers work by filling and smoothing the area from below the surface of the skin. The crease/folds are lifted out with instant results and a lasting effect of approximately 6 months. All dermal fillers used are fully biodegradable which means they are absorbable. These are preferred as they are superior in terms of minimising side-effects and have an excellent safety record. All dermal fillers used are fully reversible and temporary.

Both treatments are performed usually with minimal discomfort and side-effects. A detailed discussion will take place so you are fully informed. The Anti-Wrinkle Treatments used are temporary and to maintain results you will need repeated treatments.
