About The Procedure

The areas which are most commonly treated with the anti-wrinkle injections are the dynamic lines around the eyes and forehead. Our anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to minimise the lines around the mouth and nose, relax the jawline, smooth out the chin, and add life to the brows, all of which significantly contribute to a rejuvenated appearance. Only one session can soften your expression lines, restore facial balance, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

During the procedure, a fine needle injects the product into the problematic area of your skin. Our anti-wrinkle injections contain purified bacteria which block the chemical signal sent from the brain to the muscle, instructing it to contract. This means that anti-wrinkle injections free the muscles by blocking nerve signals in them. An effective anti-wrinkle injections treatment relaxes the muscle and results in a tighter and smoother appearance. Patients can  typically tolerate injections comfortably but ice can be used to numb the discomfort if the patient prefers.


The Benefits Of Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Patients opt for anti-wrinkle injections when they wish to see relatively quick results in terms of softening their expression lines. If you have deep smile lines around your mouth or crow’s feet which appear in your eye area, anti-wrinkle injections anti-wrinkle injections can assist.

What Are The Most Commonly Treated Areas?

Our anti-wrinkle injections can be used by people of all skin tones, types, and textures. The most commonly treated areas are the following:

  •         Perioral lines, which become visible around the lips. These occur as a result of a minimised production of elastin and collagen. They usually run from the top of the lip line, up to the nose, and down to the chin.
  •         Nasolabial folds, which run from the nose to the mouth. These can be minimised with anti-wrinkle injections that lift your cheeks. 
  •         Marionette lines, which go from the corner of the mouth to the chin. 
  •         Crow’s feet, which appear around your eyes. Anti-wrinkle injections will allow you to maintain the natural movement of this area while smoothing the lines at the same time.
  •         Glabellar lines, which are also known as frown lines that appear between the eyebrows. Their depth can be significantly reduced with our anti-wrinkle injections in Sydney.

How To Prepare For The Procedure?

There are no strict rules that need to be followed before the procedure however there are some general guidelines you should stick to if you want to achieve the best, long-lasting results. A week before your scheduled appointment, you should avoid chemical peels and needling procedures. 

We advise getting in touch with our team at Skinnovation Laser Clinic, so that you can consult with our Cosmetic Injector and learn more about the details of the procedure. It is also recommended that you inform us of your medical history, skin issues, or medications you are currently taking. If you suffer from any kind of allergy, report them and we will find the best solution for your individual needs.


Recovery Time And Results

It typically takes no time to recover from this type of procedure. This is because our anti-wrinkle treatments are almost painless, which means that you’ll feel minimal to no discomfort after the procedure. It is advised to avoid exercise and facial treatments, scrubs, or massages on the treated area for 24 hours. You are also advised not to lie on your back for 4 hours after the procedure, as well as maximise facial activity the first half an hour when the procedure is done.

In some cases results can be seen immediately after the procedure, but typically it takes between three to ten days for the final result to be evident. Patients are advised not to repeat the treatment during that time. Around two weeks after the treatment, we will schedule a consultation to review the results. The effects can last up to three to four months, but if the patient decides to undergo anti-wrinkle injections treatment regularly, the dosage can be reduced.
