Anti-wrinkle Injection

Is a treatment given by injection into the skin. It helps temporarily prevent wrinkles by “freezing” the muscles that control certain facial expressions.

Treatment Options

  • Frown lines (between eyebrows)
  • Forehead lines
  • Top of the nose (bunny lines)
  • Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Chin (to prevent dimpling)
  • Jawline & Neck
  • Jaw Angle (teeth grinding — bruxism)
  • Chronic migraine
  • Excessive underarm sweating

Anti-wrinkle Injection is a very pure preparation of a protein, botulinum toxin type A, obtained from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum grown under modern methods of cultivation. This means that the effects of treatment last for several months but eventually they will wear off.

What happens during a course of treatment with Anti-wrinkle Injections?

Using a very fine needle, the doctor will inject a small amount of Anti-wrinkle Solution into the areas needed and spread it evenly over each area, usually using 15 to 25 units per area. The course of the treatment takes about 30 minutes.

Does it hurt?

The needles used are very fine so most people experience only mild discomfort. It is uncommon for pain relief to be required. But we do offer if necessary.

How quickly does it work and how long will the effects last?

You should notice some change for the better within a week of your treatment. Different people have different responses to treatment. The doctor will advise you on when to return for further treatment if necessary.

What happens if I decide to stop the treatment? 

The effects of the Anti-wrinkle Injection wear off over a period of 3 to 4 months. If you decide not to have any further treatment there will be no lasting change in the areas treated.

Are there any side effects?

Every treatment has side effects in at least some patients. Because Anti-wrinkle Solution is a protein, there is a small chance that flu like symptoms (tiredness, mild fever, muscle aches) may occur; these will disappear within a few days. You may also feel a little discomfort from the injection sites.

If any of these effects become troublesome or you notice other effects you think may be caused by your treatment, contact us.

Is there any reason why I should not have Anti-wrinkle Injection treatment?

You should not have Anti-wrinkle Injections if you have certain conditions and there are circumstances when you need to take special care.
