After years of frowning, laughing, smoking and worrying our face develops deep lines and wrinkles such as “crow’s feet”, forehead lines or “worry lines”. Over time, these wrinkles and lines become deeper and more permanent, making you look older, tired or stressed.

Simple Anti-wrinkle injection treatments can dramatically soften facial wrinkles instantly leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.

Our cosmetic injector will be attending bronz every second Saturday to perform anti-wrinkle injections and fillers.

What are Anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple, non-surgical procedure that is fast, effective and easier than you think.  Treatments will make you look younger and more refreshed right now.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the leading brand, a natural bacterial product FDA approved and used for medical purposes for over 12 years.

How do Anti-wrinkle injections work?

Many facial wrinkles occur when we make repeated facial expressions. Anti-wrinkle injections relaxe the tiny facial muscles that cause expression lines, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled. They work only on the specific areas treated leaving surrounding muscles to function as usual, producing normal facial expression without wrinkles. It cannot “freeze” your facial expressions. It softens them and works only where you want it to.

What is the treatment like?

Anti-wrinkle injections are placed in the facial muscles via tiny injections using a very fine needle. Treatment takes around ten minutes. The pain assiciated with injection is minimal. Many patients describe it as an ant bite sting for a few seconds. No local anestethic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately.

After injection, it takes two to three days for them to begin taking effect and up to seven days to see the full effect.

Where can it be used?

Anti-wrinkle injections are used widely for the elimination of:

• frown lines between the eyebrows
• horisontal forehead wrinkles
• crow’s feet or smile lines around the eyes

It is also being used to lift the eyebrow and open up the eye for a more youthful appearence. Doctors have also reported good results in nasolabial folds between the nose and the mouth, perioral lines (“smokers lips”), reducing neck lines and chin dimpling or creasing.

How long will it last?

Anti-wrinkle injections last for 3-5 months or longer, depending on the individual. You can decide to repeat the procedure as you wish. The result will wear off progressively as the expression lines return. You will require repeat injections 2-3 times for a year to maintain the effect. Studies show that with repeat  treatment, the effect lasts longer, so you may require less frequent treatments in the future to maintain the result you have come to like.

Are Anti-wrinkle injection treatments safe?

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injected in very small amounts, using a very small needle. A session for this will often take less than 30 minutes, and the results are immediate. The treatment lasts about 4 to 5 months after the first injection and usually a top up is needed every 6 to 12 months, depending on the individual, and the areas treated.
