Lines on our face appear because we laughed, smiled and cried! They mean that we have lived a full, happy life. But over time, as we get older, the lines seem to stay rather than come and go.
The good news is, they can be corrected with anti-aging injections, smoothing your wrinkles so that you look relaxed and refreshed.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
What are they?
At Dr Face, we use a purified protein that is extremely safe. Anti-wrinkle medication is placed directly into the muscles under the skin – usually between the brows, forehead creases and crows’ feet. The effect of the treatment is to relax and smooth the look of lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements.
What are they used for?
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to correct medium-depth facial wrinkles. They are even more effective when used in conjunction with dermal fillers, to make you look naturally beautiful.
How long do they take?
Your first appointment takes around 30 minutes and repeat treatments are a lot shorter (in and out).
How long do they last?
You’ll see results after five days to two weeks and the effects should last for three to four months.
Are there different types of injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are primarily used for the reduction, of fine lines and wrinkles. Most commonly the injections are used to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows, decrease the forehead lines and to crow’s feet.
The most common reason people decide to have treatment is because they want to look ‘better’ – whether that means fresher, less tired, less worried or younger. At Dr Face, its your definition of better that we’re here to help you achieve.
When does the product take effect?
Initial results can be seen within 3 to 4 days of treatment. The full effect becomes visible by Day 14. This is worth remembering if you have a special occasion coming up like the races in November.
The treatment effects can last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. The great thing is there is very little down time with anti-wrinkle injections. You can get back to your day straight away!
What are the side effects?
The product itself is made of natural purified protein which temporarily inhibits muscle movement.
Is it safe?
Many are concerned about the safety of the product. The product we use at Dr Face is made by Allergan and has over 3000 industry papers written on its use. It is safe. So safe in fact that the medical world is using exactly the same product to treat medical conditions like migraines and depression.
