Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Injections
Anti-wrinkle treatment injections can be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions.
As well as being used to reduce wrinkles, they can be used to stop excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, and treat migraines.
Anti-wrinkle treatment injections have been used safely for more than twenty years in the treatment of medical conditions such as double vision and facial muscle spasms in both adults and children.
The main cosmetic use for anti-wrinkle treatment injections is to improve lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows and forehead.
These wrinkles form with time from the activity of muscles in these areas.
Anti-wrinkle treatment injections can be used to temporarily weaken these muscles, causing the lines to diminish after treatment, as the muscles which produced the lines, no longer move. By softening the appearance of the lines around the eyes and forehead, we can take away the tired, stressed or anxious look, allowing you to look younger and more relaxed.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to lift and reshape the outer eyebrow, reshape the jawline, reduce the muscle bands in the neck and to give the jawline a lift ('Nefertiti" lift) and help reduce teeth grinding.
If anti-wrinkle treatment injections are used to treat lines that are very shallow, then often these disappear completely. If the lines are deep and permanent then other treatments such as Dermal Fillers or Fraxel Laser may be required if you wish the lines to be removed completely.
If you start regular treatments with anti-wrinkle treatment injections before permanent lines start, then you will delay and possibly prevent wrinkles appearing, helping to maintain a youthful appearance.
Treatment involves a series of tiny injections into the muscle directly beneath the wrinkle line. Each injection causes a few seconds of stinging and occasionally some bruising or slight swelling may occur. You should move the muscle in the treated area for five to ten minutes after the injections and must remain upright for four hours, and refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area as this could spread the anti-wrinkle treatment into unwanted areas.
The effects of the treatment will be noticeable four to seven days later and will last for between three to six months. The results often last longer with further successive treatments.
Complications are uncommon but can occur. The most common complication is partial eyelid droop (occurring in about 2% of injections), and eyebrow droop or asymmetry. This may last up to three weeks, after which it resolves itself. Anti-wrinkle treatment injections are not to be used in pregnant or lactating women.
