Anti-wrinkle injections can rejuvenate the appearance of the face. Designed to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections are a quick and effective solution for crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles, lifting the eyebrows, smoothing the under eye muscle, bunny lines of the nose, improving a gummy smile, softening smoker’s lines around the mouth, lifting a drooping smile, relaxing a dimply chin, refining a jawline, and smoothing the bands of the neck. These injections also produce a more relaxed, refreshed, youthful, and less worried appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections and other cosmetic injections at Silkwood Medical in Sydney can eradicate shallow lines and considerably improve deeper lines.*
During the anti-wrinkle injections procedure, a purified protein is injected in minute quantities to soften dynamic facial lines by blocking muscle contraction. These anti-wrinkle injections have been used for more than 30 years to treat irregular and involuntary muscle movements of the eyelids and face. Anti-wrinkle injections block the muscular activity that causes facial lines and wrinkles and usually last for several months. These anti-wrinkle injections take approximately 30 minutes and involve very minimal pain. Anaesthetic cream or icy poles may be applied prior to treatment, together with the administration of nitrous oxide gas, if needed.*
Recovery from Anti-Wrinkle Injections
You may experience slight temporary bruising near the injection site. However most normal activities can be resumed immediately following treatment. Heavy exercise and lying flat for the first 3 – 4 hours after treatment are best avoided. It is also recommended that the face is washed gently and no creams applied the evening after treatment. Results from muscle-relaxer injections usually take four days to be seen and up to 10 days to be final. Anti-wrinkle injections are temporary and repeat treatments are required to maintain optimal results.*
Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles of the face, preventing the skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. They are effective for expression lines, such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. They can also be used to treat the turkey necklines on the neck as well and can be injected into the jaw muscles to help minimise teeth grinding.
