Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Townsville for WOMEN and MEN

Anti-wrinkle treatment involves the injection of a small amount of a purified protein, using a very fine needle, into specific muscles of the face.

The medication causes these muscles to relax creating a softening of the wrinkles above them.  This results in a fresher, rejuvenated appearance in the treated areas.

Anti-wrinkle injections are most useful in the upper face; specifically frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and wrinkles radiating out from the side of the eyes (crow’s feet).

Safety

Anti-wrinkle injections are extracted from bacteria and refined into a medication that has been used safely and effectively in millions of patients for over 25 years. There have been no long-term side-effects recorded from cosmetic usage.

Effectiveness

Results from anti-wrinkle injections begin around 3 to 5 days after treatment and the full effect is seen after 10 to 14 days.  The results generally last 3 to 4 months at their maximum effect before gradually wearing off. However, many factors determine treatment duration.  Younger patients generally have a longer duration and higher treatment doses tend to last longer.  Patients that are very physically active often report a shorter duration of action.  Interestingly, the same patient may receive different durations from two identical treatments.

As a rule of thumb, most patients will initially require treatment 3 to 4 times per year to maintain their results.  Over time with repeated treatments, patients often only require treatment 2 to 3 times per year.  However, there is no compulsion to have regular treatment.
