Anti wrinkle injections Melbourne?
Women come to me concerned that they wake up one day and they all got wrinkly. They all wonder how and when did all these wrinkles start and how come they did not get any warnings before that happens.
The truth is wrinkles do not start suddenly but they are a creation of years of lack of skin hydration, stress and excessive use of facial muscles and as a part of ageing process.
Wrinkles and facial lines are inevitable as we age. However, they do get aggravated by external aspects like exposure to sun, smoking, bad health habits and poor lifestyle.
Skin wrinkles have to be treated early with anti wrinkle injection and skin hydration before it leaves permanent wrinkles (static wrinkles) which are harder to treat
What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are special neurotoxin protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a smoother and improved appearance.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are the only medical product of its type with more than twenty years of safe usage involving millions of patients worldwide, comprehensive clinical trials, published studies and extensive clinical practice.
How does anti wrinkle injection work?
Anti Wrinkle Injections work by blocking the electric stimulation at the nerve endings that control muscle movement. When injected into the wrinkles over the muscle, a muscle relaxation results after about three days such that the muscles cannot contract. This creates a smooth rejuvenated appearance of the overlying skin that can last anywhere from three to six months. It is always advisable to get your treatment before your muscle comes completely in action.
Types of wrinkles:
Dynamic wrinkles: (early wrinkles)
Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. As skin ages it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. These grooves then become permanent features on your face.
As the muscles in our body start contracting, the overlying skin that is attached to them starts gathering and developing across the underlying facial muscles.
This causes wrinkles to appear between the eyebrows, across the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the cheeks and even on the neck.
Dynamic wrinkles occur due to mild loss of volume and collagen cover which will let muscle coverage at the time of relaxation and deepening of wrinkles simply for the period of contraction.
Anti-wrinkle treatment involves using injections for Dynamic wrinkles. These injections are administered in to particular muscles to temporarily decrease muscle movement for roughly 3-4 months and prohibits wrinkles from forming.
Static Wrinkles: (late wrinkles)
Severe loss of localized collagen causes lines and wrinkles to become deeper and fold to create Static Wrinkles. This type of wrinkles requires a treatment which is a combination of dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injection.
How much required to be injected per area?
Anti wrinkle injection is a neurotoxic protein and it is measured in units. One unit of anti wrinkle injection refers to the biological activity of this medication.
Note: Male usually require more units than females or even double the number of units to treat their facial muscles.
You will start to notice results in a few days, as the muscles treated start relaxing in a couple of days and attain maximum ease within seven-fourteen days. As the effect of the injections start to subside after about three months, you will notice that the effects start to fade away.
Very little discomfort is experienced during the treatment. It is a quick procedure that does not require anaesthesia or sedation. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. Some patient’s report minor discomfort for a few seconds at the time needle is administered. Bruising may occur in some cases; however it can be concealed by make-up and is short-lived.
It is recommended to use you facial expression for 2 hours after the injection to get better results and not to exercise the same day as that could affect the results.
When will I see results?
Anti Wrinkle Injection causes muscle relaxation of the injected area in three to five days after the injection. The full effects may not be seen for two weeks.
Common adverse effects can be pain, mild bruising, mild headache and infection. Seldom side-effects like droopy eye lids and droopy eye brows may occur.
