Anti-wrinkle injections

Face facts

Wrinkles are not evil. Lines are signs that you’ve smiled, laughed, cried and experienced life. But as we get older, time and gravity can make them a little more prominent than we’d like. The good news is that wrinkles can be corrected with anti-aging injections, smoothing skin so you look relaxed and refreshed.

What are they?

At Dr Face, we inject a purified protein that’s extremely safe. Anti-wrinkle medication is placed directly into the muscles under the skin, usually between the brows, forehead creases and crow’s feet. This relaxes the muscles and smoothes 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’re even more effective when used alongside dermal fillers.

How long is the appointment?

Your first appointment takes around 30 minutes, while repeat treatments are a lot shorter. You can go straight back to work after an appointment and exercise four hours later.

Are there different types of injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are primarily used for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The most common injections treat frown lines between the eyebrows, decrease forehead lines and reduce crow’s feet.

The most common motivation behind treatment comes from people wanting to “look better”; which translates to younger, less tired or less worried. At Dr Face, we help you achieve your definition of better.

When does the product take effect?

Initial results can be seen within three to four days of treatment. The full effect becomes visible by day 14, which is worth remembering if you have a special occasion coming up, like a wedding or the races in November.

The treatment effects can last anywhere from three to four months. Because there is very little down time with anti-wrinkle injections, you can get straight back to your day.

What are the side effects?

What are the side effects?
The product is made from natural purified protein, which temporarily inhibits muscle movement.

Is it safe?
The product we use at Dr Face is made by Allergan and has more than 3000 industry papers written about its use. It is safe – so safe that the medical world is using it to treat conditions like migraines and depression.

Will I look fake?

Not if you come to Dr Face. We pride ourselves on minimal interference and skilful application to achieve a natural look. Our promise to our clients is that we help reveal the best version of themselves, because there’s nothing more attractive than being comfortable in your own skin. If you want something more over the top, you’re in the wrong place – Angelina Jolie’s lips weren’t made for everyone.

Will people know?

A major advantage of this minor treatment is that you can walk in and out, heading straight back to work or out for lunch without anyone knowing where you’ve been. Because the effects peak over 14 days, the change is gradual. If someone compliments you by saying you look great, but they can’t put their finger on what’s different about you, we’ve done our job.
