Wrinkle relaxation injectables can rejuvenate your appearance, smooth harsh lines and prevent new creases from forming.
When we are young, our skin springs back to its initial position after we make facial expressions. As we get older, dynamic wrinkles and creases remain on the skin to form static wrinkles that are present at rest. This process occurs because the natural substances that give out skin structure, volume and elasticity decrease as we age.
Environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress also contribute to the ageing of the skin, leaving many people with wrinkled skin that looks a lot older than they feel.
Anti-wrinkle injectables are designed to relax specific facial muscles that cause dynamic crinkles. Relaxing these muscles stops you from making particular facial expressions that lead to the formation of undesirable static wrinkles.
This procedure can be used to treat crow’s feet (from smiling and squinting), forehead lines (formed when you raise your eyebrows) and the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown, which are known as glabellar frown lines.
As everyone is different, our team at My Klinik will develop a personalised anti-wrinkle treatment plan that focuses on your current condition and desired goals.
Anti-wrinkle injectables are a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles to create an improved appearance. Manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions, the active ingredient in wrinkle relaxation treatment is derived from bacteria in much the same way penicillin is derived from mould.
The treatment is a prescription-only medicine and must be administered by a qualified medical professional. At My Klinik, all injectables are administered by our medical cosmetic injector.
Wrinkle relaxation treatment is a non-surgical procedure whereby a small amount of product is injected into selected facial muscles. Usually, the treatment takes around ten minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and no anaesthetic is required. The injection may sting for a few seconds, but normal activities can be resumed soon after.
After the procedure, it takes two to three days for the treatment to begin taking effect and up to seven days to see the full results. The dose recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines. During consultation, Dr Moulos and Dr Smith will discuss with you the dosage, procedure and injection locations best suited for your desired results.
Results can last up to four months before lines begin to return and can last longer with repeat treatments.
