You smile, you frown, you concentrate - and over time these expressions leave their mark upon your face. Until recently there wasn't a lot you could do about it. Today there's a solution. A simple non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce crow's feet, frown lines and worry lines within days.
Injections for the treatment of facial wrinkles have become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures performed today - and for good reason. Wrinkle relaxers are safe, quick and affordable and offer dramatic results with minimal discomfort.
How it Works
Our cosmetic physician injects a small amount of a natural protein into the wrinkle-causing muscles using a very fine needle. The substance blocks nerve impulses from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle relaxes. Once the muscle is relaxed you cannot contract to make undesirable expressions, the skin remains smooth and new creases are prevented from forming. The wrinkle relaxant is delivered very precisely into the area of concern and does not travel to other areas of the body.
Is it safe?
The muscle relaxant protein has been used for more than 10 years for medical conditions involving spasms and more recently for cosmetic purposes. There have been no permanent side effects reported and the substance will not accumulate in your body with each injection. It is however not recommended during pregnancy or breast feeding, if you have an existing infection or skin problem or have a medical condition that effects the nervous system.
What can I expect?
The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal and brief and although anaesthetic creams can be used, they are generally not necessary.
It takes 2 -3 days for the wrinkle relaxant to start taking effect and up to a week to see the full result. The effect lasts 3 - 6 months after which the face will return to its pre-treatment appearance. With repeat treatment the effect can last longer meaning less frequent treatment will be required.
When it comes to investing in your appearance, wrinkle relaxant injections are an excellent choice. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today and are a simple, safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
