Anti-Wrinkle Injections Before and After
With age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear on the forehead, around the eyes and around the mouth. These creases are only exacerbated by constant facial movements and expressions, leading to an aged, weary or angry look. Anti-wrinkle injections aim to temporarily relax these wrinkle-causing muscles, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance. If you are considering anti-wrinkle injections, take the time to look at our before and after photos to see if the team at Form and Face’s work appeals to you.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work
When injected into the selected muscles, anti-wrinkle injections block the chemical signals from the nerve to the muscle, thus limiting the movement of the muscle. This works to relax existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of new wrinkles. The result is a tighter, smoother and younger appearance.
Ideal candidates for treatment
At Form and Face clinic in Sydney, the first step to determine whether you are a candidate for anti-wrinkle injections is to have a consultation with one of our Aesthetic Nurse Specialists. If you have one of the following skin concerns, you may be a candidate for anti-wrinkle injections:
- Forehead and frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
- Gummy smile
- Neck bands
- Square jaw
How anti-wrinkle injection treatments are performed
Prior to your treatment, your Aesthetic Nurse Specialist will mark the areas of your face that will be injected. If you are concerned about pain, your practitioner can numb the area with an anaesthetic cream. Despite that, the needles used are very small and only a small amount of the toxin is injected into any one area, making treatments relatively painless.
Once the treatment area is prepared, your practitioner will inject the wrinkle relaxers into the skin. The entire process usually only takes 15 to 20 minutes and you will be able to resume your normal routine immediately afterwards. Over the next two to three days the muscles will begin to relax and final results should be apparent within 10 days. Expect your results to last for three to four months, after which you will need top-up treatments to maintain your wrinkle-free appearance.
