Anti Wrinkle Injections
At Skintopia we use only TGA approved products, over time, the facial expressions that we make create lines, these will present as frown lines, crows feet, forehead furrows, etc.
With small amounts of anti wrinkle injection, these expression lines can soften over time, or even prevent the formation of these lines. Similarly, the lower face can also be treated. Such improvements include jaw line contouring, lifting of the neck, reduction in chin crease and dimpling.
Along with the cosmetic effects, certain medical conditions can also be treated. These include:
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
- Headaches and Migraine
- Excessive underarm sweating
How does an Anti Wrinkle Treatment Work?
Anti-Wrinkle Treatments contain a naturally-occurring protein extract, a very small amount is injected into the specific muscles responsible for causing the wrinkles, allowing these muscles to relax over a period of time. Once the muscles are relaxed, the overlying wrinkles are reduced, or softened. The treatment takes around 10 minutes depending on how many areas are treated and is relatively painless.
What To Expect On The Day of Treatment
On the day of treatment there is very minimal pain. Some slight redness following treatment can occur, usually subsiding in a few minutes. Within 2-3 days of treatment, the muscles start to relax, achieving a full result within 14 days.
The results generally last on average 3-4 months. After a few treatments, it takes less and less volume of the product to maintain muscle relaxation.
