What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that works to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. The injections are medically administered and help relax certain wrinkle-causing muscles in the face to create a natural, subtle rejuvenation of your appearance. These "wrinkle reducing" injections are some of the most popular anti-aging methods.

The minimally invasive procedure has a wide variety of clinical uses, it can also be used for Hyperhidrosis(excessive sweating), and for the treatment of TMJ(temporomandibular joint) problems/Bruxism.    

What is the difference between Anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal fillers?

Anti-wrinkle injections can relax, and lift certain muscles in the face to help prevent further creasing of the skin, ultimately softening lines.

Dermal fillers can replace volume and enhance facial features. Dermal fillers are not the same as Botox. Botox works by stopping muscle movement under the skin, whilst Dermal fillers "plump" up your skin, by delicately filling in creases which may not be erased by anti-wrinkle treatments. Dermal fillers are particularly effective if the lines have been present for many years.

How long do Anti-wrinkle injections take to work?

Anti-wrinkle injections have minimal downtime, with the best results being seen about two weeks afterwards, lasting up to 3-4 months. While fine lines may be reduced quickly, deeper creases  may take longer.

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used safely for many years. It is important when considering anti-wrinkle treatment, to choose a practitioner who is qualified to perform the procedure.

Are Anti-wrinkle injections safe?

What are the side effects of Anti-wrinkle injections?

The effects of Anti-wrinkle injections are temporary and have been used for cosmetic and medical purposes for over two decades, without any reports of long-term side effects. Swelling and small bruises can appear, which settle over the following week.
