If you seek a naturally youthful appearance and you want to avoid the onset of facial lines and wrinkles, Anti-wrinkle Injection is the answer! It is a non-invasive modern treatment.
Botulinum toxin popularly known as Anti-wrinkle Injection is an anti-wrinkle injection that weakens the muscles and controls the relaxation of the muscles. While it is mostly referred to as an anti-wrinkle injection, it is also used to treat conditions such as excessive sweating, chronic migraine, gummy smile, necklines, smokers’ line, crow’s feet near the eyes and much more.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER
You should consider this treatment if you are looking to treat any of the below:
- Frown Lines
- Facial Wrinkles
- Neck & Smokers Lines (Nefertiti)
- Crow’s Feet
- Excessive Sweating
- Chronic Migraine
- Uncontrolled Blinking
- Strabismus (lazy eye)
- Gummy Smile
During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history with the doctor. Be completely open with the doctor about your concerns and expectations. Inform him/her if you've had any type of botulinum injection within the past four months. Also tell your doctor if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids or allergy medications. If you take blood thinners, you may need to stop taking them several days before your injection to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising.
At the time of the procedure, one or more methods will be used to numb the area, such as topical anaesthesia or ice.
A thin needle will be used to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.
Although it is a safe procedure, there are possible risks involved like:
- Temporary bruising and redness.
- Slight discomfort during the injection, which disappears immediately after.
- Possible headaches fade away within 24 to 48 hours.
Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. This will help prevent the toxin from spreading to a different area. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.
