As you age, fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness, scarring or sun damage begin to form.
What happens during injections for wrinkles?
Our experienced consultants will assess your skin and advise you on the best method of treatment. There are two categories of injections:
- Muscle relaxants - injected into a wrinkled area, this treatment temporarily blocks the nerve impulses that causes muscles to contract. Your skin will have a smoother look. It may take one to two weeks for muscle relaxants to take effect. The usually last 3-4 months.
- Dermal Fillers - injected into wrinkles, fillers cause the area to “plump” up, filling in the wrinkled area. You may feel tightness or soreness in the areas treated. An overall swelling may also occur. These symptoms should ease within just a few days. Fillers usually last 6-12 months.
Treatments take about 15 minutes and are performed on a outpatient basis. Treatments can take longer depending on your level of wrinkles or lines.

Since there is no recovery time injections can be scheduled around your working day.
