Anti-wrinkle injections are available at Milsons Point Medical Centre to freshen up tired skin. These injections can also be used to prevent wrinkles to achieve and preserve a youthful skin, whilst maintaining a natural and expressive appearance.
How Does Anti-wrinkle Injections Work?
Anti-wrinkle injectable medication works by relaxing facial muscles that contract, wrinkle the skin, and eventually cause dynamic wrinkles. Once injected into these muscles, it causes them to stop contracting, preventing them from forming the tell-tale wrinkles.
Wrinkles occur through a combination of factors. Changes occur at the cellular level, our skin loses collagen, and prolonged exposure to the sun and other environmental factors also takes its toll. But muscle movements in the face are also responsible for certain wrinkles. When an individual is anxious or focused, the muscles in the forehead and between the brows tend to contract, causing the skin to fold and furrow. When squinting to better observe something, the muscles around the eyes contract, resulting in crow’s feet.
How Long Is Recovery From anti-wrinkle injections?
No downtime is needed. Anti-wrinkle injection is well-known for being a “lunchtime procedure,” as patients can resume their regular activities immediately after a treatment session. Any discomfort after injections is usually very slight and limited to redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.
How Long Before You See the Results?
You may notice an effect within 24 to 48 hours after a treatment session; however, further smoothing should become visible over the following 3 to 5 days. Improvements can last up to 4 months.
Does Anti-wrinkle Injection Work on Men?
It’s not just for women.
Anti-wrinkle injection is one of the leading procedures requested by men worldwide, with hundreds of thousands of injections performed. The treatments can restore a look of youth and vitality to men who want to turn back the clock and feel more confident in professional or social situations.
