Wrinkles form for many different reasons: repetitive expressions, the aging process, sun exposure, and unhealthy lifestyle choices. At My Cosmetic Clinic, with several locations conveniently located throughout the New South Wales area, we offer anti wrinkle injections whose purpose is to help smooth lines and wrinkles so that you can help combat the aging process and achieve smooth skin.
How Can I Get Rid of My Wrinkles?
Anti wrinkle injections affect wrinkles at their source by relaxing the muscles responsible for forming those wrinkles. When you address aging at its source, you can help improve your appearance and your skin texture by temporarily smoothing your wrinkles. The injection process is quick and results are long-lasting. Adding these injectables to your beauty routine can help you temporarily get rid ot your wrinkles.
How Anti Wrinkle Injections Work
Anti wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles beneath your skin that are responsible for creating wrinkles. The ingredients in these injectables work by inhibiting the communication between the nerve signals and the muscles. Once this occurs, the muscles stop contracting, and the skin can rest. When the skin can finally rest and isn’t forced into expressions all day, lines and wrinkles temporarily fade.
What They Address
Anti wrinkle injections can address several different areas of the face and neck. They can smooth the most common expression lines, including forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, all of which form on the upper half of the face due to genetics, a loss of skin elasticity, or repetitive dynamic expressions. They can also help improve the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and dimpling on the chin.
These injections can smooth puckering lines above the lips, the bunny lines that form at the sides of the nose, and address any sagging along the sides of the mouth that often appear as facial folds. If you have begun to experience muscle laxity in your neck, specifically in your platysmal muscle, and lines and wrinkles have formed, this injectable can help lift and tighten your sagging neck.
Injections for Aesthetic Improvements
Anti wrinkle injections can do more than just smooth your wrinkles. They can be used to create improvements in your appearance and address certain conditions or features that may negatively affect the overall aesthetics of your face. These injections can be used to give your eyebrows a lifted appearance to help combat skin laxity and drooping that often results from a loss of skin elasticity due to aging.
If you have a gummy smile, these injections can help improve the appearance of your smile by reducing that gummy-looking appearance. We can also administer these injections into the lower half of the face, specifically the masseter muscles, to slim the lower facial region and create a more contoured-looking appearance.
All About the Injection Process
When you arrive for your appointment, we will begin with a consultation to determine your needs, ensure that you are a treatment candidate, and provide you with all of the information about the process and your results so that you can move forward with realistic expectations. Once the consultation portion of your appointment is complete, we will move on to the injection process.
We will begin the injection process by applying a cold compress to your treatment area to help numb the area. Then, we’ll use an ultra-thin needle to administer a small amount of the injectable product into the muscles in your chosen treatment area to help relax the muscles and smooth the surrounding skin. The entire appointment, including the injection process and consultation, takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
How Long Does It Take To Notice Results?
When you begin a routine with these injectables, you can expect to see an initial improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles within two to three days of your treatment. Your complete results will be visible within five to eight days of your appointment.
How Long Do the Injections Last?
Typically, these injections will deliver results that last up to 16 weeks total. If you want to maintain your results, we recommend that you schedule follow-up treatments every four months. Doing so will ensure that you can maintain the most consistent appearance year-round. Since these injections are only temporary and the results do wear off after four months, you can discontinue treatment if necessary. You can also resume treatment at any point as needed.
Is There Any Downtime?
You won’t have to plan around downtime once your treatment is complete, but there are some directives you must follow post-treatment to care for your treatment sites after the process is complete. We recommend that patients avoid touching their treatment areas to help prevent any issues. You should also avoid exercise for 48 hours after your treatment. Doing so will help ensure that you get the best results possible.
Who Are They Right For?
These injectables can help address wrinkles in both men and women. An initial consultation will help determine if this treatment is the right choice for you.
How To Make Your Results Stand Out
You cannot change the rate at which your body metabolizes the ingredients in these injectables, but there are some ways that you can make your results stand out. Focusing on improving your skin and keeping it healthy by making the right lifestyle choices will go a long way in helping you achieve a beautiful complexion. Beautiful skin will help your results look even better.
Schedule Skincare Treatments
At My Cosmetic Clinic, we offer different skincare treatments designed to perfect your skin and make your results stand out. Treatments like chemical peels and skin needling can help increase collagen production and help your skin glow. Your injection results will look even better on beautiful, healthy skin.
It’s important that you take good care of your skin and schedule regular maintenance treatments to help keep your collagen levels high, improve your skin elasticity, and help make your injectable results look even better.
Consider Dermal Fillers
Additionally, if you want to address volume loss in the lower half of your face, you can combine anti wrinkle injectables with dermal fillers to achieve the most comprehensive results. Using dermal fillers in combination with these wrinkle relaxing injectables can help you achieve a youthful glow. During an initial consultation, we can recommend which skincare treatments will best enhance your look.
Invest in Skincare Products
Another way to enhance your results after your treatment is to invest in high-quality skincare products. Professional-grade skincare products can make a big difference in your skin by helping address stubborn skin conditions and improving your skin overall health.
Consistency, dedication, and a commitment to a morning and evening skincare routine will give you beautiful, healthy skin. Injectables always look better on healthy skin since in and of themselves, they cannot improve the health of your skin, just its appearance.
Eat Healthy Foods
Eating foods that promote skin health can help you achieve a healthy glow. Avocados, healthy fats and oils, lean proteins, and plenty of green leafy vegetables will help your skin stay hydrated. These foods contain the nutrients and vitamins that your skin needs to stay healthy, hydrated, and youthful.
Hydration is essential for beautiful skin. Making sure that your skin is hydrated throughout the day and at night is important for overall skin health. Hyaluronic acid products can help hydrate your skin, as can professional-grade moisturizers. Additionally, drinking plenty of water throughout the day will keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
