Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the quickest and most effective ways of reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Treatment is quick, pain is minimal, and results are usually seen in 4-5 days. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkling. The effects of the injections wear off gradually in 3-4 months and therefore need to be repeated if you want to maintain your reduction in wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections work best for crows feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. The number of injections and cost vary depending on the number of sites treated and the number of units injected. Our aim at Valentine Dermatology is to start low and carefully tailor the dose to achieve the look that you want. If you are in located in New Castle or Lake Macquarie, please drop by at our clinic for a consultation on how anti wrinkle injections can help you.
As with any medical treatment, it is best administered by a medical professional trained in its use. Wrinkles are caused by muscles contracting and pulling on our skin. Knowledge of facial anatomy is very important, since there are 43 muscles involved in facial expression. Knowing and understanding exactly which muscles to target and inject offers the safest and best results.
