At The Aesthetic Doctor clinic anti-wrinkle injections are administered by our doctor with the expertise to provide safe, effective and personalised cosmetic treatments.
You automatically get a follow up appointment in 2 weeks to ensure the treatment was satisfactory and ensure your safety.
The anti-wrinkle injection method entails a series of very small injections with a tiny needle into specific facial muscles, which temporarily relax the muscles so that they do not cause creasing or wrinkling due to natural facial expressions. These are usually very well tolerated and feel like a tiny scratch or sting.
We will guide you through the anti-wrinkle injection treatment from initial consultation through to post-treatment follow-up care for an optimal result. Anti-wrinkle injections are often used in conjunction with dermal fillers to optimise results.
The treatment time is usually about 15 -30 mins. We believe in doing things slowly, accurately and safely.
Your recovery should be immediate. Results should become evident within 7-14 days.
Treatment lasts about 3-6 months, and with repeated injections even longer.
For anti-wrinkle injections, we charge per unit used. You can view our anti-wrinkle injection price list here.
As each person is unique and individual needs may vary, we cannot give you an accurate estimate over the phone of how many units you may need. We always start off conservatively and review after 2 weeks to ensure you do not get the ‘frozen’ expression.
The product used in anti-wrinkle injections relaxes certain parts of the facial muscles by temporarily blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscle. This causes the muscle to relax, so the skin overtop looks smoother.
It also reduces some movement, which prevents the skin from creasing with natural facial movements, but when done properly, anti-wrinkle injections won’t leave you with a frozen look, you can still express yourself facially.
