Wrinkle Smoothing

What are Wrinkle Smoothing injections?

Gone are the days that anti-ageing cosmetic procedures need to involve surgery. There are fast, effective methods to banish wrinkles that give soft natural results without going under the knife. This is where Wrinkle Smoothing injections offer a fantastic alternative that hit the cause of lines and wrinkles at their root.

The treatment involves administering a series of purified protein micro-injections to targeted zones in the muscles of the face. It disrupts the muscle memory in repeated facial expressions, thereby gently relaxing the wrinkles that form in the skin. Wrinkle Smoothing treatment can offer soft, natural results and a youthful appearance without effecting your natural expressions.

Where can wrinkle smoothing injections be used?

Wrinkle smoothing injections are ideal for addressing the dynamic lines formed from repeated facial expressions, which can cause us to look tired and old. Common treatment areas include:

  • Forehead creases – the horizontal lines running across the forehead formed from the expression of happiness or surprise.

  • Glabella lines – the vertical lines formed between the eyebrows often due to squinting, concentration or frowning.

  • Crow’s feet – the fine lines or wrinkles you see on the outside of the eyes which are usually more obvious when smiling, laughing or squinting

  • Bunny lines – wrinkles around the nose from the repeated action of scrunching up the nose in facial movements

  • Droopy eyelids/eyebrow lift – when the lids begin to drop, they can be lifted from the muscles in the eyebrow

  • Dimpled chin – minimise the appearance of dimples and wrinkle in the chin
  • Wrinkle Smoothing

    What are the benefits of Wrinkle Smoothing injections?

    There are many benefits to be gained from Wrinkle Smoothing injection when performed by a qualified medical expert:

    • A quick, non-invasive treatment that can be performed faster than a hair cut

    • You will appear brighter, happier and relaxed in your expressions

    • By diminishing the distraction of harsh lines, it will highlight your best features

    • Treats the root cause of ageing skin lines, rather than the skin itself

    • Gives your face a youthful, fresh appearance

    • A widely used and well-established treatment with proven results

    What to expect during treatment?

    Treatment will only proceed after a detailed consultation.

    Once you have discussed the areas that you would like to treat and established your eligibility to proceed, your aesthetics consultant will be able to explain how they intend to target the specific areas and the results you can expect to see. You will be given some pre-treatment instructions to follow prior to your treatment appointment.

    On the day of your appointment, your face should be free of make-up and cosmetics. The injection areas will be cleaned, prepared and marked with the exact locations of the injections. Since these injections use very fine needles, no anesthetic should be needed.

    Each injection will feel like a tiny pin-prick when handled with expert precision. Some injections will go directly into the muscle and some into the area between the muscle and the skin according to the response that is required to smooth each wrinkle. The number of injections will depend on the number of areas you are addressing in one session.

    Once all injections have been administered, your face will be cleaned with a hypo-allergenic cleanser, and you will be given your post-treatment instructions to follow. This usually involves not touching or rubbing the treatment are, not bending forward for at least 4 hours, rest and avoiding strenuous exercise and alcohol.

    The effects are not instant but will appear gradually as the muscles begin to relax. You can expect to see the full results of your treatment within 2 weeks.
