Anti-wrinkle injection is a temporary non-surgical anti-ageing treatment that softens the appearance of wrinkles on the face. Also known as botulinum toxin injections, Botox® or anti-ageing injections, it is mostly used around the face to eliminate visible forehead lines, frown lines on the glabella, or around the corners of the eyes.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a painless anti-ageing treatment aimed at reducing face wrinkles, which can be a sign of aging. Our doctors use a face chart to mark the areas that need attention, as well as the amount of botulinum toxin injection needed. The effect of the anti-wrinkle injections last around 3 months, depending on the patient’s lifestyle. Sun exposure may dissolve the botulinum toxin faster. Returning patients usually have their anti-wrinkle injections top-up twice a year.
Each anti-wrinkle treatment is bespoke to the patient’s needs and desires. Multiple anti-wrinkle injection treatments are required for visible results.
The anti-wrinkle injections work by numbing the facial muscles and minimizing the muscle movement, to soften the formation of lines and deep wrinkles. Our doctors focus on using anti-wrinkle injections for the purpose of minimizing the appearance of lines and improving the natural look of the patient.
Anti-winkle injections are different from facial fillers and work as a muscle relaxant, rather than filling up the treated area. Anti-wrinkle injections are not administered to pregnant or breastfeeding women. They are also not recommended to people who suffer from neuromuscular disorders.
