Facial Aesthetics » Anti-Wrinkle Injections
If you are deemed suitable, anti-wrinkle treatments can be provided after a thorough consultationand are a safe, simple and non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles within 2 weeks. Wrinkles appear initially with facial expression and with time become a permanent feature on the face. The areas typically affected are between the brows, around the eyes and across the forehead.
Anti-wrinkle treatments can also be used to treat excessive sweating under the arms and jaw muscle strain, to reduce gummy lines and neck banding as well as create an eyebrow lift. Cobbled chins can be smoothened and downward-pointing lip corners can be lifted. The results last 3-6 months, depending on the person. You will still be able to express yourself, the treated areas just won't crease as much!
Commonly Asked Questions
Can I have anti-wrinkle injections?
Suitability for treatment is determined after a facial consultation with our Dentist and Aesthetic Practitioner, Dr. Nina Kelman. Anti-wrinkle injections are contraindicated when pregnant, breastfeeding or if you have a neuromuscular disease such as Myasthenia Gravis.
Are they any side-effects?
There may be some short-lived swelling and redness. Rarely, some people get a mild headache.
Post treatment advice?
We advise you to exercise your treated muscles as much as possible for a couple of hours after treatment. It is best to stay upright for a few hours, avoid exercise and excessive pressure on the treated areas for a few days i.e. when cleaning your face.
