An appointment for a comprehensive consultation and facial rejuvenation assessment is the first step for clients considering the many benefits of anti-wrinkle injections. Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre clinicians have extensive experience in administering cosmetic injectables, placing the highest priority on safety at all times.
At Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre anti wrinkle injections offer Melbourne residents and workers a central location to pop out and have a fast treatment. Treatment is fast, highly effective and able to reduce the visible impact of aging within a matter of days.
Anti-wrinkle injections are purified proteins administered as an injectable into facial muscles. These injections help relax the muscles, eliminating signs of wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. The anti-wrinkle injections work to block nerves that stimulate the contraction of muscles, leaving behind a refreshed look. The injections are safe and have been in use for over two decades, showing effective outcomes.
What is the difference between dermal filler and muscle-relaxing injections? Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles which form wrinkles, especially those commonly occurring as:
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to slim the face/jaw and to treat Bruxism, which is a condition caused by grinding the teeth. A broad jawline can be reduced by muscle relaxant treatment directed into the masseter muscles that clench the jaw, giving it a slimmer appearance. This is a popular treatment for broader Asian jawlines.
The injections work well on wrinkles in motion – those which form due to expression but disappear when no expression is made. Lines that are formed by frowning and squinting produce outer eye wrinkles and frown lines and are referred to as dynamic wrinkles as they are created in motion. Over time, however, they become permanent wrinkles if left untreated.
Dermal fillers replace volume loss, add support to areas of wrinkles and are used to enhance the contours of the face. Both types of cosmetic injections can be used to rejuvenate the overall appearance.
Usually, this is a walk in walk out procedure which means the appointment can be arranged at any time of day without noticeable effects. Our anti wrinkle injections allow Melbourne clients to go about their routine with minimal interruption.
Most people report that injectables feel no worse than a tiny scratch or a pinprick as the injection is administered. Extremely fine syringes are used to administer the relaxant, therefore reducing discomfort. The process is quick and rarely leaves bruising or noticeability at the site.
Following treatment, a gradual smoothing of lines can be seen, improving and maintaining a more youthful appearance. Once the muscle is treated, it relaxes and stops the wrinkle from forming. These injections take effect gradually over the following few days, with the full effect becoming evident within 7 to 10 days.
The treatment can last between 3 to 5 months. Many patients report lines being less visible with treatment even after injectable treatments have worn off. This is due to the decreased repetition of the facial muscles as those movements are made, and the facial muscles associated with that movement being ‘trained out’ of the wrinkling motion.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to deal with a number of issues, some of which include:
Facial expressions create facial lines that become more prominent as we age. These lines can be eliminated using anti-wrinkle injections. Crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines are some of the facial lines that can be treated using anti-wrinkle treatment.
The shape of the face can be effectively corrected to appear slimmer and more oval. For those with a squared jaw, anti-wrinkle injections can help treat the masseter muscle for a slimmer face and better teeth grind.
Excessive sweating in the underarms
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to keep excessive underarm sweating under control by blocking the sweat gland-stimulating nerve.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be administered for a number of conditions for effective outcomes. Some of the benefits to getting anti-wrinkle injections to include:
1. Relaxed facial muscles
2. Rejuvenated skin
3. Reduced signs of aging
4. Non-invasive treatment
Getting anti-wrinkle injections at our Melbourne clinic is quick and safe, with almost no downtime. However, you can expect certain after-effects such as redness and mild swelling which will subside with time. There may also be some temporary bruising at the site of the injection.
