Anti-Wrinkle Injections Consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr Avery will explain the risks and benefits associated with the procedure. He will also assess your relevant medical history and before going any further, ensure that anti-wrinkle injections are a safe and appropriate choice for you.
Whether you are considering anti-wrinkle injections or possibly face lifting surgery, book a consultation with Dr Avery so together you can discuss the different options available and develop a personalised treatment plan.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections Procedure
After the face has been thoroughly cleaned, a temporary nerve freezing medication (Botulinum Toxin) is injected into the facial muscles below wrinkles using a fine needle.
One or several injections may be made in areas of concern for the patient, including between the eyebrows, on the forehead, on the sides of the nose, the outer corners of the eyes, and around the mouth.
Results can usually be seen around 2–7 days following the procedure, as the skin becomes smoother and wrinkles begin to fade away. Slight pain, tenderness, bruising, and/or mild headaches may be experienced after a session, but are rare.
Each anti-wrinkle treatment will take approximately 20–30 minutes. The effects of an anti-wrinkle injection may last anywhere from 3–4 months. Most regular patients will choose to receive anti-wrinkle treatments approximately every 3–6 months.
