Who is an ideal candidate for anti-wrinkle injection treatments?
In order to determine whether you are a good candidate for anti-wrinkle injections, a medical professional will need to review your medical history and evaluate the severity of the lines and wrinkles that you want to treat. In some cases, dermal fillers may be a better option. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used for cosmetic as well as medical purposes. Your clinician at Face and Body Adelaide will need to determine whether you are an ideal candidate during your consultation.
Am I too young to consider anti-wrinkle injections?
Your 20s is a great time to consider anti-wrinkle injections because it can be used as a preventative treatment, which means you can enjoy younger-looking skin for much longer.
How are wrinkle relaxers administered?
Using a series of small injections, your Face and Body clinician will carefully insert a fine needle into the area you want to treat, ensuring that the right muscle is being targeted. More than one injection may need to be used in each area to achieve the desired result. Wrinkle relaxers cannot be injected into skin that is already irritated as this could further irritate the area.
Are there any wrinkle relaxer side effects that I should know about?
Wrinkle relaxers are an FDA-approved treatment that has been thoroughly studied and researched, so they are completely safe. While the side effects of wrinkle relaxers are rare, they can still occur, which speaks to the importance of selecting a qualified and experienced professional to administer your treatments. Here are a few of the possible side effects of wrinkle relaxers:
- Mild bruising at the injection site
- Infection at the injection site
- Tenderness or skin irritation at the injection site
- Drooping of the muscle that was injected
If you experience any side effects after your appointment, it’s important to contact Face & Body clinic Adelaide as soon as possible.
Will anti-wrinkle injections freeze my face?
The only time that a patient will be left with a frozen look is if the injector used too much product in one area. The likelihood of this happening is extremely rare but you can decrease your risk by choosing an experienced professional to assist you with your treatments. The clinicians at Face and Body Adelaide are highly-qualified, experienced and prioritise patient health and safety.
What will anti-wrinkle injections cost?
The cost of your anti-wrinkle injection treatments will depend on the amount of product that’s required, which will be different for everyone. Some patients only require a small volume, while others may require more due to the size of the muscle being treated or if multiple areas need to be injected. Anti-wrinkle injections are priced per unit.
Is it safe for me to combine anti-wrinkle injections with other cosmetic treatments?
Yes, absolutely! Many patients choose to combine their wrinkle relaxer treatments with other procedures in order to achieve an overall refreshed and vibrant appearance. Face & Body Adelaide will assist you with a tailored treatment plan that will meet your specific requirements.
