THE RESULTS

Creating a smooth, rejuvenated appearance by relaxing the underlying muscle

Anti Wrinkle Injections usually cause muscle relaxation of the injected area three to five days after the injection. The full effects may not be seen for two weeks, however this may vary from patient to patient. Cosmos Clinic encourage all patients to return for their complimentary follow-up appointment after two weeks.

THE PROCEDURE

Effective anti-wrinkle injections that take up to 30-minutes

Anti Wrinkle Injections work by blocking the impulses from the nerves that control muscle movement. When injected into muscle tissue, muscle relaxation results after about three days; such that the muscles can not contract. This creates a smooth rejuvenated appearance of the overlying skin that can last anywhere from three to eight months. When used for the treatment of dynamic facial lines, the effect typically last for about three months.

Anti Wrinkle Injections require five to ten tiny injections per area with a very fine needle. Unlike Anti-wrinkle Injections given at skin clinics, our medical professionals use cold packs and preserved saline to reduce the mild discomfort. No local anaesthetic cream is needed.

The most commonly treated areas include:

  • Frown lines or worry lines between the eyebrows;
  • “Surprise” or forehead lines (expression lines);
  • Bunny lines (lines along the side of the nose);
  • Crows feet or “laugh lines”; and
  • Eyebrow lift

In these areas, excessive contraction of the muscles below the skin cause it to wrinkle and eventually “crease”. The facial expressions caused by these particular muscle actions are generally undesirable. “Crease” lines on the skin that do not disappear when stretched out will be improved, but not completely removed by Anti Wrinkle Injections and may need treatment by other methods such as Dermal Fillers and/or Collagen Stimulators.

POST TREATMENT

Resume normal activities the same day

Anti Wrinkle Injections can last from 3 – 6 months. Patients need to keep in mind that the goal is to minimise the appearance of lines caused by movement to create natural looking results; not to have a “frozen face” or to keep the injected muscles paralysed. Experience with thousands of patients has shown that the vast majority using Anti Wrinkle Injections on a regular basis will need treatments two or three times a year to maintain the improvement.

After the treatment, Vigorous rubbing of the injected areas should be avoided for at least eight hours. Contrary to what was formerly thought, the position of the patient during or after properly performed preparation or injection of Anti Wrinkle Injections does not influence the area or intensity of the effect.

We do encourage you to move the muscles in the treated area in the first few hours after the treatment. This will increase the action and onset of the Anti Wrinkle Injections.

Some bruising may develop which will subside.

What are Anti Wrinkle Injections?

Anti Wrinkle Injections are a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles – creating a smoothed and improved appearance. Anti Wrinkle Injections are produced by a bacterium, and it was first used in humans for the treatment of strabismus (“crossed-eyes”) in 1978. It is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including cerebral palsy, migraine, excessive sweating, wry neck, back and facial muscle spasms as well as the treatment of facial wrinkles. Anti Wrinkle Injections are the only medical product of its type with more than thirty years of safe usage involving millions of patients worldwide, comprehensive clinical trials, published studies and extensive clinical practice. Anti Wrinkle Injections are one of the most widely researched medicines in the world with twenty approved indications in more than seventy-five countries. Anti Wrinkle Injections are a simple, quick and minimally invasive treatment that delivers fast, visible results.

Why do wrinkles and lines appear?

Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and forehead lines (wrinkles on the forehead) appear because of persistent small muscle contractions. Wrinkles that are caused by persistent small muscle contractions can be treated with Injectable Muscle Relaxants.

How do Anti-Wrinkle Injections help lines from getting worse?

By treating the muscle with anti wrinkle injections, it will weaken the muscle over time. This means that the lines will not be as bad when the anti-wrinkle injection wears off. Also when the lines are relaxed, collagen remodelling repairs the damaged collagen beneath the wrinkle line and “fills in” those lines. This effect becomes more apparent with repeated injections and in many cases causes the lines to disappear over time.

What is the future for Anti Wrinkle injections?

Recent clinical trials show promising results in the next generation of anti wrinkle injections lasting at least 6 months in duration.

Who should NOT have Anti Wrinkle Injections?

True allergic reactions to Anti Wrinkle Injections have not been observed. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as myesthenia gravis should not be treated with Anti Wrinkle Injections. No side effects from Anti Wrinkle Injections have been reported when pregnant or nursing women have been inadvertently treated, although safety during pregnancy or lactation (breastfeeding) has not been firmly established.

Are there any possible complications?

Anti Wrinkle Injections are safe and effective; with the vast majority of patients experiencing no complications. It is not absorbed by the blood stream and only affects the muscles injected. Anti Wrinkle Injections are eliminated from the body in a few days but the machinery required for the nerve impulse to travel to the muscle is disabled for three to four months. No serious or long-term health hazards have been attributed to the use of Anti Wrinkle Injections, even after years of use and millions of injections. However, some mild transient side effects can occur. These include:

  • Mild swelling or redness at the injection site, which will settle within a few hours
  • Bruising at the injection site can occur but is not common. This can be avoided by the application of ice packs prior to the injection and by carefully inspecting the area to be injected for blood vessels. The bruising settles in two to six days and can be covered with makeup. Smile lines are an area typically affected by bruising
  • Occasionally, the injected muscles will not be weakened enough and touch up injections will be needed for correction after two weeks
  • Drooping of the upper eyelid, which can last up to three weeks, is rare. This may be treated with eye drops until it resolves by itself, typically after a few days
  • Drooping of the forehead can occur if too much of the Anti Wrinkle Injection is put in this area
