Unfortunately, wrinkles are a part of life and as we age stress, UV exposure, laughter and tears all cause expression lines on our faces to appear. This happens because our skin loses too much natural elasticity and there is a decrease in the production of collagen. Fortunately, anti wrinkle injections are a simple, non-invasive procedure that can dramatically minimise even the most prominent wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging.
Static wrinkles are the lines that materialise when your skin loses collagen and elasticity. They are visible even when our face is at rest, thus constantly noticeable. Dynamic wrinkles are slightly different because they only appear when your face is animated.
Facial lines and wrinkles form due to frequent facial muscle activity. By having anti-wrinkle injection treatment the muscles relax and the lines and wrinkles caused by recurring muscle activity are softened.
Here in Sydney, anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available and are commonly used to treat the following problems:
Anyone with wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, between the eyebrows and alongside the nose is a suitable candidate for anti-wrinkle treatment. If you’re looking for natural looking results for your skin, anti-wrinkle injections may be the right solution for you.
During the procedure, patients receive injections into the areas where they are experiencing overactive muscles that are causing wrinkles to develop, such as the face, neck and chin. A local anaesthetic cream may be administered to the skin beforehand if it is thought the patient will be uncomfortable with the needles. The anti-wrinkle injections may cause a slight stinging sensation at first, but this is normally tolerated well by most patients and treatment does not last long.
After the procedure, there is minimal downtime for the patient and you are free to leave the clinic when you are ready. You may experience a slight redness around the injection site, as well as some swelling. But, this will usually fade away by itself within 24 hours of receiving treatment. This means you can return to your normal routine as soon as possible.
Overtime the coming weeks, patients will be able to see a noticeable different in the wrinkles caused by overactive muscles. The injections will mean that the nerve signals that cause the muscles to move will be disrupted. This allows time for your skin to repair in the region. As the skin smoothens out, lines will decrease and this will reveal a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Every patient is different and how long the results will last from anti-wrinkle injections will vary. During your initial consultation, a professional will be able to advise you on what you can expect.
Anti-wrinkle injections are sterile, purified and safe — used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. At Dr Saras & Co, we have clinics around Sydney that are devoted to anti-wrinkle treatment to let patients look and feel the way they want with no threat of looking expressionless or unnatural.
