Wrinkles? Who needs them?! Reducing the presence of wrinkles is a great step towards looking and feeling younger. Our wrinkle injection therapy uses a solution to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. A small amount of the solution is injected into the selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and the discomfort is minimal and brief. Expect to see some results in about 5-7 days and full effect by day 10.
The important question… Is it safe?
The anti-wrinkle solution has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and for medical purposes for over 25 years. In addition to it’s cosmetic use, the solution has been used to treat cerebral palsy in children and movement disorders in adults. Wrinkle injections should not be used during pregnancy, in lactating mothers, and with certain other medical conditions. It is very important to advise us prior to treatment if you have health problems or are on any medications.
Are there any side effects?
Minor side effects can include bruising which may last 5-7 days, and occasional redness or swelling which usually disappears in a few hours. More significant side effects relate to dosage and positioning. Although side affects do occasionally occur, Dr Auteri takes particular care to minimise them by participating in regular training and education in order to maintain skills that are current with the most up to date methods of practice.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
You’ll be set for about 3 months, but just remember, that each skin type is different, so you may experience slightly longer or shorter lasting results. The result will usually wear off progressively after 2 months as expression lines gradually return to their original appearance. The lines will never be worse after treatment. For some clients, the more often you have the treatment the less frequently it is required as the effects may last longer with each application.
